Bizarre "consult" lasted less than five minutes - he didn't want to see the paint I chose, didn't measure anything, couldn't give me a quote nor a timeline. He rushed off, promising to send an e-mail with quote later that evening. Instead, he sent several e-mails asking when my apt was built. I was changing a wall color, nothing more. Very off-putting interaction overall, and left me fearing the worst in follow-up. Chose Ortega's Painting Service instead & the whole job was done (perfectly) he next afternoon.

Doug and his crew just finished another job for my design firm and did a great job!

They showed up on time, finished on time and left the job clean and my client's happy.

Archie the Operations Manager and Liz the Office Manager are great to work with and take care of any of my clients needs immediately.

They are never my lowest bids, but I never have to worry whether they will do a good job, babysit or police them.

My years of experience has taught me that the low bid hardly ever works out, can be problematic and needs lots of managing from me, which does not make it a good value in the end.

And what I truly want more than a low price is peace of mind for me and my client's.

This is the fourth job that they have completed for us in the last year and I kept promising them I would post a review and now I have kept my promise.

I will use them again, and recommend them to all my friends and clients.

Doug Gorton professionally faux painted interior walls (including a brick fireplace) and ceilings in our home, as per our interior decorator's design. We were totally satisfied with the subtle appearance of the faux painting and the quality of the work. His workers were friendly and clean cut. I would not hesitate to recommend Doug Gorton to anyone who appreciates and expects quality workmanship.

I was very pleased with a room painting, and recommend to anyone. The guys were very thorough and dedicated (and energetic!). It was clear they knew their subject and how to get good results. I'll have more painting to come, and will definitely be calling them again.

I am pleased with the quality of work in the repainting of the exterior of my house. Doug was professional and thorough in his initial discussions and the bid was detailed and professional with competitive, fair prices. There were some delays in getting started, but his crew was thorough, careful, and friendly. The quality of work and care around the house was very satisfactory. There was also good follow up by Doug to ensure satisfaction. I would definitely use Doug's team again

My house looks new. Doug and his team did a wonderful job. The bid was exact, no guessing what was to be done. They finished on time and addressed all of my concerns. I would recommend Professional Painting without hesitation. Excellent.
Thanks Doug and Lourdes.

I could not be more happy with the job Doug Gorton and his crew did. The initial discussions were helpful, the bid was detailed and professional. The job itself was simply exceptional: the crew was unbelievably thorough, careful, and friendly. And they work fast! The house never looked better. I give Doug four thumbs up.

Doug's crew was great to work with. They did exactly what was asked for (painting of master bath) and in a timely manner. The paint job looked very good and I will be calling them again for more work. I'm used to painters that do not show up and when they eventually do they vent cigarette stench outside your front door. Not with these guys. They were very considerate and even gave me some insight on what they were working on. Doug himself comes in exactly on time, reviews what to quote (on many areas) and leaves in about 10 minutes. He's very professional and very fast. I got the written quote right away which swayed me even more to work with them.The reviews were what led me to his company and it appears that they are correct!

I received Doug's name from several other folks that have used him in our neighborhood. Doug helped get our house ready to sell. He rearranged their schedule to accommodate the short notice and his crew did a fantastic job. They painted almost the complete interior and the front of the house. The mahogany wood door was restored and it looks good as new! They estimated that it would take three days and held to the schedule. I would recommend them to do any painting jobs you need completed on schedule. He gets the job done.

I recently bought a new house and wanted some rooms painted before moving in. Based on the reviews, I decided to give Doug a try. I am very happy that I did! He came out to give me an estimate, which I had in writing before the end of the day, and then worked with my tight time schedule to ensure completion of the job before my actual move-in date. He gave me good advice on what sheen to use (which I love!) and his attention to detail rivals mine (for which I drive others crazy because I notice things others don't). I am a perfectionist, so when Doug noticed a slight sheet rock imperfection in one accent wallI once it was painted red, and then came back the next day to fix the imperfection and repaint the area, without me having to request it AND at no additional charge to me I might add, I was very impressed! My questions were always answered promptly and courteously. \r
\r
If you are looking for someone that is easy to work with, responsive, efficient, detail-oriented, mindful of your needs, and fairly priced, then look no further! I plan to have a couple more rooms painted before too long and I will definitely be calling Doug.....

If you don't want to have a bad experience, call Doug. Our house is a difficult house and I am a very detailed oriented homeowner. We initially paid another painting contractor 20% deposit for exterior paint. The work was never started. He was fired, refused to refund our deposit and now we are out that money. After viewing all the reviews, I decided to take the risk and call Doug on a Saturday; late in the afternoon. Doug came over the next day, Sunday and said we would have within 24hrs. a written bid. He also said should we accept the bid, that they typically start within 1-2 weeks and the crew stays until finished.\r
Doug followed through on everything he promised. He is customer satisfaction oriented. His pricing is in the middle; not the highest we received and not the lowest. He uses quality paint and puts 2 coats on. Sure enough on Tuesdsay, we had 4 worker's starting the prep work. They took off all the window screens, washed all the windows, our light fixtures, even our bar-b-que grill. Covered our pool so we wouldn't get any material in it from the sanding. I even changed the paint color and the crew put 3 coats of paint on our house with a smile. Doug ensures at the end of job, homeowner is totally happy. I had several small requests to complete the job and those were addressed. Save yourself time, money and the headache of finding a painter that is reputable, reliable, reasonably priced, shows up, does great work, does what is promised and completes the job. Call Doug!\r
Thank you Doug! House looks great!

I was really blow away how professional my living room paint job was done and also how Doug Gorton Professional Painting re-did my fireplace. The crew is very professional and did a outstanding job. I'm very excited and looking forward to getting my front door re-paint and stained. I would highly recommend everyone who comes to this website to call for a free estimate like I did. You will be one very satisfied customer.

I would highly recommend Doug Gorton Professional Painting for interior and exterior home painting. His company did interior work for me last year and just recently completed an exterior painting job on a large rental property. Doug and his crews are great to work with. They are very professional and do extremely high quality work.

I am very happy with the work Doug and his team did for me. Doug is experienced enough to quickly give an accurate bid. His crews are experts at what they do. They worked around my moving boxes and new kittens! They are friendly and trustworthy. I have had people ask me for Doug's number so they can call him. I will be calling Doug back in 2011.

Hiring Doug Gorton to paint the interior of our 2500 sq ft home was one of the best decisions I've ever made as a homeowner. Doug gladly came all the way out to our home a second time to discuss colors with me, and he did not steer me wrong. I am delighted with every color we chose and even more delighted with the quality of the work. The application where the colors meet the white ceilings and baseboards is virtually perfect. We have several accent walls with a light color facing an adjoining wall painted a darker color, and the line between light and dark color is perfect. I don't think you could ask for a higher quality paint job than Gorton's crew provided. Since they painted our home, I find myself checking out the paint in other people's homes, and there is simply no comparison to my home. I had another company bid on the job in addition to Doug, and while Doug was more expensive, it was only by about $200. Plus the crew finished the job well ahead of schedule and left our home much cleaner than I'd expected; they even swept our dining room and foyer before they left. Hiring Doug's company was money well spent. Our home looks gorgeous!

For the last 3 or 4 yrs Doug and his crews have done all interior and exterior painting of both our home and the apt. Here are the characteristics that they have demonstrated:

1. Doug provides prompt and competitive bids;
2. When the apt needs immediate attention between renters, he gets the job done quickly and the results are always excellent;
3. He and his crews know the particular requirements of keeping older structures in great shape, and they pay special attention to details that even my wife and I don't find on our own;
4. When they are done with a job, the place looks practically brand new;
5. This is where his crews' high standards and attention to detail really pays off. They carefully search for every flaw and do whatever it takes to correct the problem. The result is near perfection every time.

In sum, Doug Gorton and company do the best work of all the painters we've ever used. The results are always top quality and long lasting. I'd recommend him to anyone wanting great results.

When researching painting the exterior of my house, I began with Austin Best Contractors, where Doug Gorton was listed. I reviewed the comments made regarding his service and contacted him for a quote. His reputation rang true. They were prompt, professional and concientious. I was having diffuclty picking out a color scheme, but Doug made a special trip to my home to help with the decision. We LOVE it. The curbside appeal of our home now feels warm and inviting. I will be using their service for any furture painting needs.

I have used Doug Gorton for over 20 years. He is truly an expert at his craft. He and his team do a truly precise and thorough painting job for your current or new home. He also works well with decorators. Doug will also work within your budget where possible. On my last job, I quoted four painters just to see if Doug was still the man, and sure enough he's the best!

They did an excellent job repainting the interior of our pre-war bungalow, including the trim and ceilings. There was more than a week's worth of preparation. The crew was very professional. The other painters I contacted for bids were unorganized, or didn't follow up, or otherwise indicated they were untrustworthy. Some take no pride in their work, speckle your wood floor with paint, and break things without telling you, hoping you won't notice. Doug Gorton's crew is, on the other hand, very professional. They did what they promised to do, and some extra as well. They are very expensive compared to some painters, but we saved our pennies and wanted it done right. Their bid was comparable to that of other pro-style painters, and given the number of hours they put into our job, it's well within reason. When we get enough budget for the exterior of our house, we will contact Mr. Gorton and ask for his crew lead, Pilo, to head up that job too. They're great.

Doug's crew did a beautiful job with our master bed/bath paint job. Resurfaced all walls and repaired ceiling where there had been remains of an A/C leak.

At the same time, he had his outdoor crew re-do exterior work that had suffered from serious sun exposure on our 1940 house.

He has carefully selected an amazing crew. His office manager, Lourdes, is always helpful. Doug knows how do to things right!

My house looks great and the team did a fantastic job! I admit that I was a difficult customer. I frequently called to ask questions, raise concerns, and just being nervous about the large job that they were to be completing. I will definitely be calling them when I am ready to paint some of the rooms on the inside.

We've received many compliments on our home since Doug and his team transformed our drab stucco exterior color to a warm, classic tone. Upon seeing the house for the first time, Doug quickly assessed our home's needs and even provided us with the name of an excellent color design specialist who tirelessly worked with us on the correct selection for our style of home. His team not only primed and painted our custom shutters, but also installed them and their hardware, taking the time to make sure that we were happy about the placement of the shutter hardware. Any and all problems during the project were solved with no hassle. The job was expensive, but value has been added to our property and Doug's rate was in line with other painting services we interviewed.

Doug fixed the water damaged dry wall in the ceiling (extremely tall ceiling) in our family room expertly and matched the paint perfectly. Doug had previously painted almost all the rooms in our house; so there was never any doubt as to whom we would call to repair the ceiling. Excellent customer service. Doug's the greatest.

We were at least five years overdue for painting the exterior of our Westlake home. The house also needed considerable repair for woodrot and weather-related damage. A neighbor recommended Doug and after meeting him, we knew we could count him to deliver quality work. He carefully explained what had to be done to ensure a long-lasting result, and he also explained what a second-class job would entail. He was not interested in bidding on the job unless we accepted his advice on procedures and quality. He listened to what we had in mind and provided sound guidance as we made our selections. We were not disappointed. Our home looks better than when we bought it 23 years ago. Four months after the job was comlete, Doug dropped by the house with a 30 foot ladder to reattach a flood light that had recently come loose. That is really great customer service!\r

Doug and his crew came on time, completed the job on time, cleaned up very well after themselves, moved all the furniture back into place and in general were very professional. Before the crew started painting, Doug and one of his men painted 7 different large color samples on walls in our LR and DR in order to help us make our color choice, and we found this to be very helpful. We had one of the bathrooms and the kitchen faux painted and in addtion the rest of the interior was painted as well. The painters were very patient in working out ""just the right"" look for us. In the end, we were super pleased with the results and highly recommend Doug Gorton's Company.\r

Doug and his team transformed my 20+ year-old mold covered limestone home into one that looks like new. There's no mold on the home, the walkways or the drive now, and the new soffit/siding and door colors look beautiful.\r
\r
The painters enjoyed what they were doing( sometimes they would start singing while they worked) , took great pride in their work, and cared about the details. Doug was professional, pleasant, easy to work with , and fufulled all the work specified in the contract and then some.\r
\r
Thanks for a great job!

Doug and his team were referred to me by a friend. They were excelent from start to finish. I needed help with color selection and several neighbors have told me they really like the color. Doug and his painters are very professional, ariived on time and finished on time. Work quality is outstanding.

Doug was referred by one of my customers who has been using him exclusively for many years and as it turns out so will I. His crews are professional and curteous and above all clean and careful. Watch him work and you'll no doubt that you're dealing with a master craftsman.

I would not hesitate to put him in the finest homes.

Doug has painted 4 or 5 different projects for me including interior office spaces and exterior walls. Always on time and very communicative. His crews were professional and I didn't hesitate to give them keys for access to the projects while I couldn't be there. I continue to work with him and recommend highly.

I had some plumbing work done at my home which resulted in a 11/2' by 2' hole in my living room wall. I was told that I might have trouble finding a professional who would take on such a small repair job. I am pleased to say that not only did Doug Gorton take on such a small job, he repaired the hole and made the wall look as good as new. He visited my home, gave me the estimate and began the job the next day. And, even though the repair was relatively small, he returned three more times because that was what was needed to ""do it right"". (Replacing the sheetrock, taping, floating, texturing, etc. takes time, no matter how small or large the job.) I appreciate Doug's attitude, his skills and his reasonable fee.

I was put in contact with Doug through the Austin's Best Contractors Network (my plumber is also a member) and was pleased to find such a company when searching for a professional and reliable contractor or service provider.

If I find myself in need of a painter in the future, I will call Doug Gorton and I will recommend him to others.

Doug and his crew painted my house two years ago and did a fantastic job. I got many compliments from friends and neighbors. My house is over 100 years old and it is difficult to ""do it right"" and I am pretty picky about the results. He came back this summer to follow up,do touch up and I received the same friendly, competent workers, who worked tirelessly, consistently, helped each other, and operated very safely and actually cleaned up after themselves. He is very detailed: used the same paint, he remembers the right things, and is also very respectful to his staff. I would highly recommend Doug Gorton to anyone who asks. It is hard to find such excellent service and competence from one company.

Two years ago we hired Doug to wash and paint our ranch-style two story house after it had been extensively remodeled by a master carpenter he had recommended. Included was the sanding and staining of upstairs and downstairs porches and completely reconstructed deck in the back as well as shutters for the front windows. His painting and porch staining was masterfully done and has held up very well. We asked him to come back recently to examine our house, make recommendations for touch-up work that is part of his warranty, and then to do that work. As with the original work, his painting crew did an excellent job; we were completely satisfied. \r
\r
Besides his and his crews excellent work, what has impressed us the most about Doug is that he stands behind his work and makes customer satisfaction a very important part of what he does. It is obvious that this is very important to him. \r
\r
We recommend Doug to anyone who wants high quality work.\r

I had a couple painters come to my new condo for repainting right before I moved in. I chose Doug due to his apparent knowledge and expertise in the area. The finished product met my high expectations. Best of all, he was able to recommend further services for which I had no previous knowledge that really made a great difference. For instance, he did a refinish on my deck that is similar to the treatments wooden boats get. I've simply never seen any other deck quite as brilliant. Thanks!!

My husband and I needed our ceiling, trim and baseboards painted. We called Doug to schedule a time for him to come out and look around. He got back in touch with an estimate which we thought was very reasonable. A few days later, we contacted Doug and scheduled a start date and it was estimated the job would take 4 to 5 days. The painters finished in 3 days, they were very friendly and answered all my questions throughout the whole process! \r

I needed my kitchen and dining area painted within a week. Doug came and checked the room and gave an estimate. Since I was going to be out of town, there was only 1 day that worked for me. Doug and Lourdes made it happen. The painters were efficient and did a good job. I think the quote was fair and not expensive. It included the price of paint and materials. There were no surprises.

Loved this experience. Usually I use someone a friend recommends but this time I relied on reviews on Citysearch and Yelp and was so glad I used Doug and his team. They arrived on time (4 workers in total) and stripped the wallpaper and applied the texture. They accomodated me moving around the work area with my 2 kids and they cleaned up when they left for the day and arrived on time on day 2 to paint the walls. They did a perfect job and were in and out without a fuss. Will definitely use this crew again

We found Doug Gorton to be very attentive to our needs. He was willing to listen to what we wanted and was very accommodating. Even when we switched several colors mid-job, Doug was very reasonable and helpful. He completed the job well within the estimated time frame.

I found Doug Gorton Professional Painting through a BBB search. I was looking for contractors with A - A+ ratings and I went to the website to request a bid. He came out on a Sunday. He explained why his painters hand wash the exterior of a building rather than pressure-wash. He gave me three different paint color cards to choose from and suggested doing the doors a different color from the house. He also pointed out some problems with the siding that needed addressing as well as touching up a few other areas. The important thing is I didn't have to bring anything to his attention. He knew exactly what to look for and made sure there won't be problems that pop up in a few months. His workers arrived promptly at 8AM every day. The carpentry work took three days and painting two. They did an excellent job. I really like how the place looks!

I have used painters all over the country and Doug is by far the best. He is a pro: made fast and precise recommendations for materials and processes. His staff are courteous and neat. They knocked out in 3 days what would have taken me a month of Sundays .. and for the cost I have budgeted for just materials!
