Residential & Commercial Painting in San Jose

Dear Preferred Painting,

I am totally thrilled with your work! Before you painted the interior hallways and staircases of our three story vintage apartment building the original wood stain and the previous owners painted repairs didn't really match. You came in and painted our stairs and plaster walls so that everything matches seamlessly with the original 1930's wooden stain. Now everything flows beautifully. The results are breathtaking!

Thank you for being so careful when you paint. We have beautiful original hard wood floors and I know you are not going to leave paint on those expensive floors or other original features in our units. You are our only painting contractor because you are the best in the business.

Thank you for all your hard work,

Eileen Evan

I have had the pleasure of working with David Martinez, owner of Referred Painting. Mr. Martinez is very professional and without a doubt is very competitive in pricing. His staff is friendly and professional, they work well in any situation, I am currently assigning several other projects to them and look forward to a long relationship with this Company.

I first met David Martinez of Referred Painting when I was getting ready to put my house up for sale.
First, he accommodated my schedule to get it done quickly, then he did a fantastic job of freshening up my kitchen and bathrooms to look like new. My house sold in less than 30 days last October. When I moved, of course I called David again, he helped me pick out paint and stain to match existing colors, which was not an easy job, but the result was perfect. David and crew are very professional, experienced and creative. It has always been a pleasure to work with David and have him in my home. I would recommend Referred Painting to family and friends.



Over the past 18 years I have used Referred Painting Co., Inc to paint the interior & exterior of movie
theatres I have been associated. David Martinez has always performed his work in a professional manner and has always done an excellent job. Whether the job was large or small David always performed his work in a timely and efficient manner His bids were always lower than other companies and his work was always superior. David has done work for me personally and business wise I highly recommend David Martinez, owner of Referred Painting. Co., Inc

We have recommended him to many friends and neighbors and all have been exceptionally happy with his work. David is very reliable and trustworthy and his work and attention to detail is outstanding, from job preparation to finish work. As far as we are concerned, he is "the best"!

We hired Referred Painting, Inc. to paint our home. David and his employees were on time, easy to work with, and offered us a great price. They finished the project on time, while we were on vacation. When we came back the house was painted and beautiful.

I have a fairly large home and have used other painting companies and I have never been totally pleased with their work. A friend suggested I use Referred Painting. SO GLAD I DID!! They worked on my home while I was at work... They did everything exactly how I wanted it done. They were on time and at the end of the day everything looked like they hadn't even been there, they were so clean. (Never had that before) And my home looked great. I would highly recommend Referred Painting... They are the best!
