Reviews From The Web

      I can't begin to tell you how impressed I am with this family-owned company. The entire experience was flawless from beginning to end. The quote was simple- snap a few photos of your rooms, and the estimate is sent via email. They set a date, and arrived promptly at 8am to get started. Alexander and his team were terrific. Alexander helped me decide on the type of paint and sheen based on our needs. He told me how he has taken classes, and received certifications over the years to understand painting - from technique, to the anatomy of the paintbrush to the chemistry of the paint- and passed this knowledge to their staff. We had a big job and Yosgar, Lucy, Roxana, Miguel, Charlie, and Antonio all worked daily from 8-6pm to get this done for us by Friday. I was impressed by how careful they were to remove nail pops, smooth blemishes, and prepare the walls. They all were meticulous about keeping the house clean- and I love that they remove everything for you and put it back exactly as it was prior. It was as if they weren't ever there- except I have fresh paint on the walls! They even vacuumed on their way out. I noticed that they take pictures of the way things are arranged to ensure everything is put back in place exactly as they found it. I wouldn't recommend anybody else for your painting needs- and they will definitely be my go to should I ever need painting services in the future!!

      We purchased a house that needed major renovations, new hardwood floors, new kitchen island, (6' X 11'), interior painting, deck redesign with cable fence.

    Based on a friend's recommendation, we contacted Zarazua Painting, who provided subs for virtually all of our house renovations.  Juan Zarazua was a wonderful resource for interior designs suggestions.  If Zarazua Painting did not provide a service, they have a list electrical, plumbing, etc, subs that they can recommend.

    Their subs were very professional, on time and they practiced COVID-19 safety protocol.

    The price estimates were competitive and professionally presented as were their invoices.

    We would highly recommend Zarazua Painting for all your house renovations.

The Crews from Zarazua Painting were efficient and helpful, showing up on time and leaving the workspace spotless and... cleaned. We are SO pleased with the quality of work and the high value of this project. It’s obvious that they care deeply about their reputation and eagerly desire to go above and beyond what is asked. I would highly recommend Zarazua Painting for any painting and drywalling project. After seeing their work on my own house, I am confident that they are in the habit of delivering quality and workmanship. Thank you so much!read more

I hired Zarazua to paint my condo in preparation to sell. It looked really bad before they went to work and they... completely transformed it. It looks amazing and the whole time Zarazua was easy to communicate with and work with. Beyond doing a great job they started when they said and finished when they said.Terrific job. Would add that they were highly recommended to me and they lived up to that recommendation.read more

Zarzua Painting installed crown modeling, patched holes in a bedroom ceiling following the install of recessed... lighting, painted several rooms, painted several doors, and touched up three walls. I have lots of experience remodeling and must say the crew that did this work was the best I have ever worked with. Flawless work. Left site clean each evening. Was on time and quiet in the house. Took great pride in the work. Highly recommend.read more

I’m so pleased with the exterior painting that Zarazua did on my home! They were so professional, did great work, and... their communication was phenomenal. They thoroughly prepared the surfaces, painted the trim on my brick house, and my porch. They cleaned up every day so that I could continue to use my outdoor areas. I really liked that the same dedicated crew was here for the duration of the project. They are super flexible on paint colors, even at the last minute, which I really appreciate. 🙂Seriously, the experience was a pleasure as was the final product. Thanks so much!read more

We used Zarazua for interior painting of our entryway, hallway, bonus room, and two sets of staircases. Antonio and... Roxanna were great to work with. They took the time to prep our floors and patch imperfections in the walls prior to painting. They also sanded in-between coats of paint to ensure a smooth finish. They cleaned and vacuumed every day after working. Our house feels so much more refreshed after getting a facelift with new paint. I will plan to use Zarazua again in the future for other painting projects.read more

Zarazua Painting exceeded all of my expectations, even knowing the good recommendation I'd received from a neighbor.... They repaired stucco, power washed and repainted our house, and painted external doors. The price was very fair. Their team Chris and Bambino were professional, hard-working, and responsive to my requests (for example, hanging bird balloons to hopefully prevent more holes in the stucco). I also used their complimentary design service with Aryn to choose new house colors - her advice was spot on and made the house look so much better. They really paid attention to the details. The owner and team took pride in their work, and fixed little things without changing the price to make the house look the best it could. At the end of the job, they cleaned all windows by hand to really make the house stand out. I was very pleasantly surprised to hear that they guarantee their work for a year! I would give 10 stars out of 5 if I could, and will definitely be using them again if the need arises.read more

Zarazua just completed painting the exterior of our home and they did an excellent job! We used them years ago to... paint our interior and they did such a great job, that they are the only company we contacted when we were ready to paint the exterior. We are the type of people that always get multiple bids on such projects so it says a lot that we only contacted Zarazua for this job, and would do the same for any other work we have that they cover. From start to finish the process was easy and seamless at a price that was very reasonable and fair. They did such amazing high quality work, the house is transformed and we don't stop getting complements on it. They went above and beyond and anticipated and addressed anything that came up before we did and were very flexible with some new requests that came up. We have a keen eye for detail but we could not find one thing to point to during the final walk through due to the quality of their craftsmanship for every little detail. They were very clean and careful with our yard and house, took all measures to protect our belongings from spills or splashes and everyone is genuinely very nice, always making sure we were happy throughout the process. To be honest we were a little sad when the job finished and the crew was no longer coming over- they were great to have around. We may need to come up with another job for them soon! I highly recommend them without any hesitation- Thank you Zarazua!read more

Super satisfied with our roofing experience with Zarazura. They showed up when they were supposed to, were fast and... efficient with both the removal of the old roof and the installation of the new one, and completely cleaned up afterwards. We were so happy with the company that we had them back a couple of days later for some ceiling repairs. The workers put down plastic over everything, wore masks the whole time, and did an fantastic job with the repairs. The only evidence that they were ever here is that our ceilings look great. Five stars! We will definitely use this company again!read more

Zarazua's crew just completed their third job for me in a year; 1) replaced siding some aging on my house; 2) screened... in my front porch; and 3) repainted an interior bedroom. In other words, they have done exterior carpentry and painting, framing and finish carpentry, and interior painting for me. Without exception that work has been of excellent quality. It has also been done in a timely manner and with an attention to detail. I recommend them enthusiastically and without reservation.read more

I don't even know where to start... These guys are amazing. From day 1 when Juan came in to give us an estimate on the... entire work, to Mario, working with us making sure we are happy with every single details, to Trinidad, explaining us details of the work and helping us make right decisions as we go, to Wendy, helping us organize things - these guys are amazing! Our house is pretty big, and we bought it in a questionable condition. I was skeptic about one company fixing everything we wanted the way we wanted. Not only they double and triple checked their own work to make sure that there are no glitches anywhere on the walls or floor, but they actually repainted part of our bathroom when we realized that we didn't like the color that we picked - for free! They went back and forth to the house for weeks with us to make sure that we were happy with the way our deck looks, and answered all the questions we had about it. And my favorite story is that when the hose on the side of the house (i'm telling you, it is an older house) got accidentally unplugged, Juan had his plumber (another man who knows what he does!) come and fix it within 24 hours. I could tell more stories and bring more examples of how these guys are second to none, but I suggest you hire them and make your own experiences with them. I promise you, you won't regret that decision. We are definitely having them back!read more

The Freeland Markham house, Constructed some time between 1907 and 1910, this two-story frame house is a distinguishable example of the late Victorian neoclassical styling popular at that time. The most striking feature of the house is the one-story wraparound porch with a second pedimented tier at the entrance bay; throughout both tiers, the supports are finely detailed Corinthian columns on brick plinths. Leaded glass transoms, sidelights and rondels embellish the front entrances. Although the house is somewhat deteriorated, its exterior is completely intact and the interior is little altered.
