Craftsman Direct was very professional, kind and responsive. Due to our schedule, we had to wait 2 1/2 weeks before starting the house painting project. They painted all the trim, windows and doors -- Our house looks brand new! The job was estimated to take 3-4 days and was completed in just over two days....This was the best house painting contractors we have ever had - We will definitely use Craftsman Direct again for future projects.
The Craftsman Direct painting team came in and painted my kitchen, hallways and bathrooms. They were professional and very nice. They taped up and covered all my items with plastic sheeting to keep the painting contained. My house looks so good! You should call Craftsman Direct to get a quote for any house painting project you have - these guys are good!
My house has a porch on three sides - Craftsman Direct painted my porch and the large deck in the back of the house. The workers were friendly and cleaned up in a splendid fashion once the job was done. I WILL use these guys again! The price was also far less than the other painting contractor I got an estimate from. Excellent bargin.

Finding a Good House Painting Contractor in Apex NC
What You Need to Consider when Looking for a Painting Contractor
Every residential homeowner sooner or later needs to have their house painted and needs to find a trustworthy painting contractor or company. There are a few important things to keep in mind before you allow a local house painter onto your property and into your home.
First Impressions are Important
Insurance, License and Bonding
Good Reviews and a Reputation for being Fair
Experience with the Type of Project You Need
A Price that You can Trust
First Impressions are Important
Inviting a house painting contractor inside your home can be a nerve-racking experience. Sometimes a reputable painter can be found through a recommendation from a trustworthy source such as a family member, friend, or co-worker. However, if you cannot find a good recommendation it is important to have some basic knowledge of what to look for in a reputable painting contractor or company.
Contractor Insurance, License and Bonding in Apex NC
In North Carolina a handyman or house painting contractor should have a business license and be able to show it to you. You should also ask for proof of liability insurance and bonding. No credible painter or contractor will mind being asked to prove his credibility - it shows their integrity.
Interior and Exterior Painting Reviews and a Good Reputation
Ask the painter for a recommendation. Before hiring a painting contractor, cross reference their information using a search engine on the internet. If a review or recommendation given by the contractor is not accurate, you might want to reconsider or ask for a second review. A more experienced painter will also be able to provide you with examples of interior and exterior painting projects, and may even have photos or a portfolio you can look at.
A Price that You can Trust
A reputable painting contractor will give you a price you can trust. Most contractor estimates give a 5-10% margin to cover the unexpected, but after that you need the confidence that your price is not going to change dramatically. Every now and then the contractor might find rotted wood or structural problems that were impossible to foresee - no handyman can guarantee against this and this is where the homeowner can feel some security IF they have already done the steps above to ensure the reliability of the handyman. If you have questions at that point about the painting company you should ask for a second opinion - have another contractor look at the "unexpected" problem to make sure the repairs merit the new price. Remember: painting ceilings and doors, or bare drywall, does take more time and/or more painting materials.
