"I would give them 6 stars if I could, will always recommend them and hire again in the future. The responsiveness and professionalism are incredible. With an impeccable aim to perfection, I’m very satisfied with the work of accent walls in my home. A fair price for the outstanding quality, dedication and attention to detail.
Outstanding communication throughout the process, with progress and consultation whenever needed. I’m very thankful to Allison for a great job done with care, like it was their own home."

"I moved into my new home but it had a 20+year old sponge paint job. It was dingy and outdated and desperately needed brightening. I’m so glad I found Black Bear on Thumbtack! Alison responded quickly and worked with me to find a time right away that worked with both our schedules. She and her husband arrived promptly on time and set out quickly to do the job. In addition to the great paint job, i appreciated their thorough preparation (removing switch plates and furnace grates, expertly taping edges and corners, etc.) and cleanliness on the job. They were very friendly yet focused, professional and easy to work with. When questions arose, they asked and also made recommendations to give me more ideas and get the best outcome. They worked full days accomplishing the rooms I needed done, including all ceilings, 2 bedrooms, hallway, living room, and kitchen. The work lasted a few days, the price was very fair, and I felt they were completely trustworthy in my home. I’m so happy with the new look they gave my home and recommend Black Bear without reservation!
"It was a pleasure working with Alison & Joe. She responded quickly to my call and was out within days to give us an estimate of the cost of the job. They were prompt, quiet, non disruptive considering several rooms were in flux & easy to work with. We've had painters in the past that have left a mess but not Black Bear, they're impeccable in their work ethic and get things done correctly & quickly. I'm sure we'll call them again when we move on to our next projects and we'd highly recommend them."
"Allison did a great job painting a vaulted ceiling in my older home. Price was fair, and work was neat and tidy. I will call Black Bear Painting again for future work."

"Hey, that's my kitchen, thanks for Doing It Right The First Time, team! I didn't know BBP when picking them to paint our 55 year old fixer upper from top to bottom, but have been thoroughly impressed by their two principles "do it right" and "no bait and switch". In our house they've encountered painted over wallpaper, ancient paint drinking in every coat of new paint, rooms with multiple layers of wallpaper and paint, etc. They've always attacked the problems to do it right without charging more, even if it adds days of work. Couldn't ask for better, more honest craftsmen! Thanks so much!"

"Allison immediately responded, was early for our appointment, friendly and provided the best value for an absolutely gorgeous job. I had my home powerwashed and it looked like a brand new place! I will be using Black Bear for some painting projects as well. I have worked with tons of contractors and this couple is hands down one of the best I've ever worked with!"

"Joe and Allison did a great job. They are maticulous about patching and details.I was very happy with their work and I am going to hire them to the rest of the rooms I need to have painted."
"I used Black Bear Painting to complete a few painting projects in my home that just have been put off and I’ve got to say - I’m impressed! They were fast, didn’t make a mess and now the living room is a pretty gray! Thanks!"
"We just love BBP! So far they’ve painted our sons room, our room, and our master bathroom AND cabinets and we have plans to paint the rest of the house and potentially more cabinets! They’re the sweetest people, very efficient and clean and their work is brag worthy. It’s almost like they can read my mind when I’m trying to figure out a color!! With their help I’m really starting to feel like or new house is a home. Highly recommend 👏🏼-"
"Allison, Joe and team were fantastic. We are happy with their work. They fixed several nail holes on high ceilings and made the room look great. They worked around our kids and animals. Highly recommend them"
"We just had our entire first floor painted by Black Bear Painting and couldn't be happier with how everything turned out. They walked us through the process from start to finish, including helping us choose the right colors and pairing for our space. They finished the job as scheduled, asked for our input and feedback along the way, and everything looks beautiful. We can't wait to have them back for the second floor! 😊"
"Allison seems very professional and has a decorator’s eye for color. I expect her business will do a fine job for us"
