Blaze Newman

Our home has huge exposed wooden beams that were damaged by water. Another company had tried to fix the damage and made it worse; several others turned the job down because it was so challenging. Luis and Lifetime Custom Painting to the rescue.

They were here for weeks, sanding to remove the damage, including working on scaffolding because our ceilings are 23 feet high. Everyone in the company was always helpful and patient and skilled, making sure that my partner and I were completely satisfied, which is a challenge because I can be very picky. And now, the beams look like new. We are grateful beyond words that Luis and his team took on this task and completed it so well. We recommend them highly.

Rosita Alvarez

I highly recommend Lifetime Custom paint. The team that worked on my kitchen Edgar, Eduardo and Saul were very professional, provided quality work, paint and clean up. The owner understood my vision and gave me a reasonable price. I appreciated that they honored their timeline. Eduardo did a great job of revitalizing my old broken cabinets .

I really love my newly painted kitchen, the countertops, cabinets and new soft close hinges . Love, love, love. Don’t go anywhere else call them for your painting needs. You wont be disappointed. Ask for Luis.

Todd Mondzelewski

This is my third time using Lifetime for a major home project. The entire process was easy , fair, and went exactly as I had hoped. Luis came out and gave a very fair estimate, but more than that he gave great vision and actually offered some great suggestions for improving my renovation. Eduardo and Alvaro did a great job day to day,.. working full days to complete on time. Eduardo did a great job with some carpentry work on some areas with termite damage.

The guys went the extra mile replacing door hardware and fixtures with newer versions that I provided. Alvaro beautifully installed A new bathroom vanity light for me. At the end, the guys could be seen on hands and knees cleaning every last bit of dust or debris off the floor.

Kevin Shaeffer

Outstanding company in every way!
- Excellent quality of work.
- Great, timely communication with the owner for fast, fair estimates and job updates.

We’ve used them for home and business jobs for over 3 years (interiors, exteriors, roof coatings for heat management, and detailed fence painting). Very fair pricing, very timely, and top notch work. What more can you ask for?! Trust them to do a great job whatever your painting needs.

Melissa Courtney

I hired Lifetime Custom Painting to paint the interior of my house, including trim and doors. I also had them replace some baseboards and complete some drywall repair. All of their work was excellent and the painters were enjoyable to work with. They took pride in their work and it showed.

Being happy with the interior painting, I hired them to repaint the exterior of my home as well. There was a fair amount of wood repair on the exterior of the house. They were able to repair it all expertly and it looks fantastic.
Their prices are very fair and their work is thorough and excellent.

Valerie Garcia

Luis' team, Mario/Job/ hardware installers were excellent! The professional look we have on our kitchen cabinets is absolutely beautiful and exactly what we wanted. We could not be more pleased with the finished product. I would highly recommend this company for all custom painting work!

Mark Leppert

I have been using Lifetime Custom Painting as my painter for my general contacting business for many years.
