At Painting America Inc., we pride ourselves in doing a great job for our clients. In fact, our business is based upon high quality work and excellent customer service.
Painting America just completed a project in our house which wood repair, wall repair and painting of multiple rooms. This is the second project we’ve had them work on – the first was a much larger painting and repair project a couple of years ago.
Pam and Dave are fantastic to work with. Pam worked with us on color and paint selection – her initial thoughts were very close to what we were looking for and she helped us coordinate ceiling and wall colors. They know paint and they know the products on the market – they’ve consistently been outstanding at helping us find low VOC products that meet our needs (coordinated contemporary colors, high humidity in laundry rooms/bathrooms, kids, easy to clean, and so on).
The workmanship is outstanding. We had damaged wood trim around our kitchen sink. It was originally stained, but had sustained water damage. A previous contractor had attempted to repair it and had left it in worse shape then when he started. Dave color matched the trim and applied multiple coats of stain and then a varnish. It looks exactly like the rest of the trim – it’s not possible to tell it’s repaired.
Painting has involved wall repair. In one case, a door handle had broken through the drywall because of a bent doorstop. The damage is not detectable after the repair. They’re meticulous about patching all the small cracks and fixing all the bulging nails before painting. They prep very carefully and have been great about protecting our furniture and other stuff while working. They leave the house cleaner they when they arrived.
So overall, fantastic advice, workmanship, and ethics. A great company to work with and we’d hire them again without hesitation.
We could literally, not be happier from our experience working with Dave and Pam. They are fantastic. As everyone else mentions, their attention to detail is incredible, and their focus on the experience for you as a home owner is top class. Here are a few highlights:
End Result: We transformed our home. What was a dull entry way and living room area is now exquisite. I never thought a change in paint could do so much, but it did. Not only was the quality of the job impressive, Pam and Dave helped us pick out the perfect color (on 2 separate occasions!).
More than just painting: We had Dave do some dry wall repair for us. It was flawless. You would have no idea that there was ever any damage.
Process: Pam is super responsive to emails, concerns and questions along the way. Great to work with. Dave and his team are extremely professional, leave the area incredibly clean in between days and are super courteous. They were even quiet enough to allow our 2 year old son to take naps 2 different days while they were there working (no guarantees for other kids :))
Cost: I know if you’re reading these reviews, cost is likely a concern. We got 4 bids, they were extremely competitive. They are very honest with pricing and broke everything out for us.
So HIGHLY recommend.
This is one of the premier painting companies in Western Washington. I am a Real Estate agent , and always feel very confident in recomending Painting America to my buyers and sellers.
If you would like exceptional, personalized service from an industry professional- look no further. After weeks of my husband and I driving back and forth to the paint store, painting huge samples on our walls, and not liking the colors, we decided to call Painting America after hearing about their attention to detail. We had the owners out to a very dark condo for a color consultation. Within an hour they were able to find the perfect shades for our living areas and bedrooms. No more Kermit green and lemon yellow! The yellow that we have in our living areas now actually helps brighten our place. These people are true professionals and they will stop at NOTHING until their clients are satisfied.
There are a few things that I look for in a painter and the work they provide.
– superior knowledge, experience, personable, as well as an open mind to what the client/homeowner wants.
With over 150years of combined painting experience Dave has seen it all and knows what he’s doing. On Daves free time he is always learning about paint, hence, “the paint geek”. Both Dave and Pam have wonderful people skills from the complimentary paint consult all the way through the finished product
There isnt a single reason why I would use any other painter than Dave Rushing with Painting America, Inc.
These guys do an excellent job.
In this quick video 1:32 you see us visiting our real estate client that had hired Painting America to do some interior painting for them. This client is more picky and fastidious and they raved about Painting America.
youtu.be/43NrkFbt28c (our lighting and camera work isn’t all that great but Dave Rushing the owner comes across as an expert, someone who really knows what he’s talking about).
Now we refer them to any of our clients that are looking for above-average quality work. (We only refer the best because it is always a professional reflection back on us.)

As a home builder and remodeler our reputation rests on the quality and results that we must consistently provide for our clients. When choosing a painting contractor, for all types of projects, from large to small, we have consistently turned to Painting America repeatedly since 1996. Their expert knowledge of paint/stain and the myriad of variables that come into play when working with paint/stain is unmatched. Their quality is superb. Working with Pam and Dave is always a pleasure. When a general contractor hires a painter consistently, for many years, you know that painter can be trusted to provide top quality work.

I have been a professional Interior Designer for years and I was beginning to think that painting companies of this caliber didn’t exist anymore. Painting America provides their customers with service that is extremely difficult to find. Their attention to detail is phenomenal! They are unbelievably honest and treat clients with the up most respect.
I would be hard pressed to ever work with another painting company in the future.

Thank you to Painting America Inc for a job well done. The process started with Pam coming to do a Color Consultation – even though I am pretty savvy with color it is very different when it comes to walls. She took a lot of time to help us make sure we were completely satisfied with our choices. Dave then came back and painted several walls so we could see how they looked at different times of the day. They arrived on Monday morning – on time. My husband was extra impressed with the calking that was done on the base boards, which gave a really nice finished look. They finished the job exactly when they said it would be finished. Best of all, Dave cleaned my house after it was all done – dusted, vacuumed, and cleaned my hardwood floors. The house was sparkling and I LOVE IT!! I highly recommend “Painting America Inc”.
We have used Painting America for two major interior jobs over the past 2 years. Dave and Pam are a husband and wife team: Dave paints, while Pam provides color consultation. I cannot overstate how helpful this approach has been to us. In the past, we have spent hours going to the paint store, buying small cans of paint, slapping it on the wall, finally choosing a color, and still being somewhat disappointed in the end by how the finished product looks.
Pam’s judgment and guidance regarding paint color has been spot-on. She is very pleasant to work with. Dave and his partner are fast and precise; we’ve had people familiar with “good painting” comment on how nice our walls look.
I recommend Painting America highly and without reservation.
Both Pam and Dave went out of their ways to be helpful. They did an exceptional job and more than what they were paid to do. In short, I give them 6 out of 5 stars!
Pam was very helpful in choosing paint colors, and her recommendation was tailored to my needs, not her personal preference. Her recommendation did not necessarily cost more either. She might tell you to not do an additional accent color because XYZ. Dave also is very good at explaining what he did and why. The painting crew he brought were polite and efficient.
It has been two months since they completed painting my place, and I cannot be happier. The place looks so clean and I love the colors Pam helped me choose. They have high standards and upload them very well.
My experience with Painting America exceeded my expectations. I will use their services again this year, and I would and have, recommended them to my friends. I offer the following brief summary:
1. During the bid process, Dave and Pam thoroughly discussed our expectations and explained their services. Based on his decades of experience, Dave asked questions that helped us agree on the scope of the work to be provided. In addition, the conversation made it clear that they were committed to satisfying our objectives. Their estimate was clear and complete, listing each line item of work to be performed.
2. Their bid was one of three I received, all within 5% of the others. Their price was bracketed by the other two bids, but it was clear from our initial meeting that their services included features that the other suppliers had not offered.
3. Pam and Dave were very helpful in finalizing our color selections.
4. Dave performed the work flawlessly, with a commitment to quality that was impressive. In addition, Dave and his team helped with other needs; changing batteries in the smoke alarms, putting new bulbs in the overhead lights, etc.
We were very pleased with their services from start to finish.
Pam was extremely helpful in during a free paint consultation at our local paint store to select some colors for our home. We had no idea. She has a great eye, and really understood to the look we were going for. She made the extra effort to show us how the colors we selected would look in different lighting. She was also very friendly and professional. We were extremely fortunate to be in the right place at the right time.
We will definitely use the services of her company in the future.
Painting America exemplifies excellence; small business ownership at its best!
My wife and I had sought multiple quotes for painting the interior of our house, and Painting America was priced very fairly. Pam came over to do the color consult, and was very patient with our indecisiveness. Throughout the whole process she kept saying “we want you to love the colors” and she meant it. We placed samples on our walls for several days before making the final decision. We ended up requesting an additional consult, and Pam was very willing and happy to do so.
They clearly set our expectations, put the details in writing and left us with all our questions answered. There was no vagueness or “half-promises”, they said what they meant and meant what they said.
When we got to the painting stage, they were very prompt and respectful of our time and house, making sure to cover every surface with drop cloths or heavy paper while we were out of the house working. During the prep process Dave and Mike even took the time to recaulk the seals in every one of our windows,they did this on their own and did not charge extra for it. Dave was very considerate of my pregnant wife, they used low fume paint, made sure we had a room to sleep in that didn’t have wet paint on the walls, and he even taped off areas that were slippery due to the drop cloths on hard wood.
The paint job at the end was exceptional, whether it was sanding, fixing nick marks on the wall, or creating razor sharp edges between the walls with the different colors; Dave’s attention to detail was second to none. Dave made sure everything was perfect, and went through the extra effort ensuring we loved the final product.
Thank you Pam and Dave,we love the transformation and you’vehelpedmake our house a hometo our new family. You guys are exceptional small business owners.
Painting America gets my highest recommendation, they truly are as good as it gets.
We recently bought a new house and needed some painting done. Ideally we would have been able to do the whole interior all at once but that just wasn’t in the budget. Dave and Pam were able to help us break down all the work we want to get done into chunks that we can do over time.
Dave does great work. He has an excellent attention to detail with a strong interest in getting it done right rather than just getting it done.
We are beyond happy with the quality of work and professionalism. We will definitely be hiring them back to do more work!
Painting America sets the gold standard in high quality craftsmanship! The attention to detail and quality is amazing. They’ve painted the outside of our house a few years back and most recently had them out to paint the inside. The color consultation by Pam was terrific! The prep and repair work was outstanding. Finish product looks beautiful! We could not be more happy on how both projects turned out. If you want the best then I would recommend Painting America!
We hired Painting America to paint the exterior of our 15 year old Craftsman house. We couldn’t be more pleased. Pam and Dave started the process with a 2 hour color consultation. We had a vision of what we wanted and they totally got it. They took our idea and helped us pick out the perfect shades.
Dave and his crew exceeded our expectations with both the prep and finish work. They sanded down and subsequently primed the wood trim, filled in holes, and caulked seams in the siding all before the actual painting. The paint itself looks great. Customer service is excellent. After painting the columns on the front of the house the way we agreed to, my wife and I decided we wanted to change it. No problem. Dave was super-focused on making sure we were happy with the results. He not only wanted us to ‘have what we wanted’, but he was also a great sounding board. When we weren’t exactly sure what we wanted, we explained our concerns with the aesthetic and he offered very helpful suggestions which resulted in exactly the look we wanted.
We are definitely wanting to have Dave and his crew come back and help us finish the interior of the house as well.
We just purchased a house in issaquah and wanted to update the interior paint job. We set up quotes with about 6 different companies (I know, overkill) but cancelled the last 3 after meeting with Dave and Pam.
They agreed to meet us at a time that was convenient for us and took their time to go over what needed to be done including resurfacing walls that had bumps and nail pops (don’t know what they’re called really but you could tell nails were pushing out drywall into the room), fixing the gaps between the walls and the closets (there were spaces between the closet frame and wall in many spots), along with the amount of time we wanted them to spend on these types of corrections. Other painters we brought in didn’t notice these and so didn’t account for it in their quote. We would either have had to pay more or would have had to deal with the imperfections. They even went over different types of paint we could use since we were painting many rooms including kids rooms and the living room. To my (happy) surprise, they didn’t recommend that we use the most expensive paints. The other painters didn’t go over this with us.
They got us their quote the next day and it was in the middle so we decided to go with them bc we were so impressed with the interaction we had.
We also went ahead and used Pam’s color coordinating services which was SOOO helpful. She came over and spent about 2 hours going over colors for bedrooms and the living space – we probably went through 20 different swatches of the color we wanted for the walls and ceiling but she wanted to make sure we were happy with our choices.
After our decision was made, work started a couple days later. The finished product looks AMAZING!!! Dave also did some more resurfacing and spent a lot of time cutting in the wall and ceiling colors bc ours weren’t exactly straight. They didn’t even charge us extra for this which I greatly appreciated. You could tell Dave wanted to make sure the job was done right and not just fast
We need to get more rooms done in time and I won’t even hesitate calling them and using them again bc they did such an amazing job. We’ve even recommended them to a few people already.
We just bought a house and needed the interior painted from its original basic beige/brown color. We had about 4 bids and Painting America’s landed just about in the middle. What sold us on Painting America is Pam and Dave’s professionalism, insights, and upmost customer service! I can be a stickler about the customer service part. They accommodated us above and beyond and was prompt with everything from our bid appointment to the timeline of the finished project. We had a little miscommunication where they didn’t include the downstairs powder room in the estimate and ultimately we decided we’d just have to do without it. Only to be surprised with a wonderful and thoughtful gesture of Dave going ahead and painting it for us, at no extra charge!!! Last but not least, they’re work is top notch. Dave has agreed to come back after our move-in, to touch up anything we see needed.
Thank you Pam and Dave! We absolutely love our new paint color and our new home =D
Quick summary: Competitively priced, wonderful people, unmatched quality.
From the very beginning, I felt that you were working with me to help me make the right decision about choosing a painting company. I was new to hiring painters and I appreciate that you recognized that and took the time to teach me about licenses, different ways to go about the job, and questions to ask other companies who would be bidding on the job.
It was nice to have someone explain the whole process to me. You were both pleasant to work with and I always felt you had my best interest in mind.
And about the paint: I love it! I still don’t know how Dave could paint my lumpy, bumpy, textured walls with such precision. I’ve enjoyed having people over to show off my new paint colors. More than a few people have been impressed with how you managed to get a straight line for my orange wall.

Dear Dave & Pam,
We are so happy with our rooms that you’ve uncovered for us. The house looks so much better. It is obvious why your online reviews are fabulous and I couldn’t agree more.
Thanks for the wonderful color consult and detailed work!!
Heidi & Ryan-Woodinville
Hi Dave and Pam,
The front door, and the rest of the house for that matter, has really exceeded my expectations. It looks fantastic! I couldn’t be happier with how it turned out. Jennifer and I also want to thank both you and Pam for the time spent during the consultation, you both really understood and were able to capture our vision.
Thanks again for everything.
Pam and Dave,
I returned from my trip late last night. My kids kept teasing me while I
was away that the Dining Room paint was pink. I have to admit that I was a
bit worried. When I walked in to the space last night and again this
morning I was pleasantly pleased! It is fresh and very beautiful!
Thank you for fitting me in to your schedule to promptly and professionally.
I will not hesitate to recommend you to all my friends and family. Lastly,
I will have Heather e-mail you a photo of the space when it is complete.
It was a great experience with Painting America. What I liked best is that they were very friendly, good at communication, and were efficient workers. Also, they were knowledgeable about their business, did good quality work, and did all of the proper preparation of all the painted surfaces. I would do business with them again.
Fred Auch, Bellevue
Painting America is a very unique company because they are a husband-wife team that provides excellent customer service. Their appearance is clean-cut and they have a professional friendly demeanor. From the first meeting when we discussed our needs, throughout the project, we felt we were in good hands. I was always able to reach them with questions and they kept us informed as to their progress. Their work stands on its own: very beautiful, clean lines, great color choices. We are overjoyed with the results, and recommend their service.
