Sparkle painting has been a contractor for School District 65 for 15+ years and I have always found the company to be very responsible, very professional and in this day of financial difficulties they are always budget conscious to the school districts needs and they are an asset to be a vendor for School District 65.

I definitely recommend Sparkle to anybody looking to complete a home improvement project. My husband used to own his own GC company, however has since retired from the industry. We were a tad weary when our basement needed remodeled hiring someone new to come into our home, but as soon as Gene began unveiling plans and solutions to our space our worries instantly were put to rest.

I am impressed with the timing and professionalism within this company. Great choice at an affordable price!

The Sparkle crew were great to use for my painting/plaster project. I needed it completed for my new tenants to move in that weekend and Gene sent his crew right out to begin work.

We got flooded during a heavy rain and our lower level needed drywall repair + paint. Knowing that speed was important to us, Gene bid out a fantastic price and crew started work the following day (Friday). He guaranteed it would be done before the next Thursday (one week). At first, it looked like it was going to be done in 3 days, but a few delays occurred (paint took a little long to dry, proper trim was out of stock)... but, even with those delays, we were still finished and back in by the deadline Gene guaranteed. Gene is easy to work with, friendly and professional.?

I highly recommend Sparkle Painting and Construction. They were responsive and really cared about quality. What I liked most was working with the owner Gene Richards. He was a man of his word

Where to start... Just like evryone elses reviews with one star. Very poorly work, dosent even follows what the description of what he said he was going to do. People where saying afordable, from where. I found out that the work he did, not to long ago, i could of saved over 1k. Next time I will wait and search for a better price, a more reliable contractor. Dont waste your time.

Pros: None

Cons: worst contractor ever

this company was a delight to work with. the only con, (if there were any to begin with), was that the crew was a little chatty. I appreciated this, because it helped me feel more comfortable leaving them home with my family during the day while I was at work. However- after a long day at work coming home in the afternoon I just want to enjoy time with my family rather than shoot a couple jokes with the paint crew.

Overall my experience with this contractor was above average and I would recommend them to anybody. Let's just hope their jokes get a little better ;)

Pros: educated contractors

Cons: see below

The Sparkle crew were great to use for my painting/plaster project. I needed it completed for my new tenants to move in that weekend and Gene sent his crew right out to begin work. Unfortunately my previous tenants had really ransacked the place, so the walls needed a lot of plaster and prep work. That was no problem, Gene's guys worked their way right through it. The only problem with this job was that a lot of the paint colors I had selected ahead of time were off of an older swatch of Benjamin Moore, so these colors were no longer available. Gene and I had to rematch all of the colors last minute - changing some of the tones I really was set on. But in the end we switched some choices, the place turned out great, and my new tenants were thrilled.

Pros: Works Well Under Pressure

I highly recommend Sparkle Painting and Construction. They were responsive and really cared about quality. What I liked most was working with the owner Gene Richards. He was a man of his word, who stood behind his work and seemed very educated about different ways to do things, a true problem solver interested in finding high quality solutions and NOT cutting corners.

Finally a general contractor you can trust to deliver on what is agreed upon.

Do not use this company they are the worst contractors Ive ever dealt with. Just to name a couple of things the painters cut corners by only putting on one coat of paint and telling me it was 2 and charged me for two coats. they did not prep the walls very good ether I found cracks and nail holes still in the walls.... In the estimate stated that they would fix all that.. I will make sure not to let anyone be folled by these guys

My experience with Sparkle Painting Company wasn't great from the beginning. We had Gene come in to give us a consultation and quote. After a day or so, they did get back to us but quoted the wrong thing. We had requested a quote for living room built-ins plus paint/trim as well as recessed lighting. These details were specified during the initial walk-through but all seemed to slip through. But trusting Gene and his company, we spoke face to face again and agreed on a price for everything we had asked for. Although we verbally agreed on a number of specifics including trim (crown molding) from the beginning -- the company's disorganization led to many details that were not specified completely. After a few weeks of work...it was evident that we had to babysit every step of the process. Why go with a specialty paint company when the quality of their work leaves so much to be desired? Why should we have to point out the spots where the old paint shows through? Or the cracks around the window frames that were not taken care of? Or the dripping? In addition to the poor quality of work, it was difficult to get a hold of the company. We had wanted to plan every day ahead of time but Gene said things would be fine and so we trusted them to be on top of their work. Big mistake again! Very simple work like paint and trim dragged for weeks. In the end, claiming that trim was never agreed on from the beginning, they refused to do trim (after asking us to pick out the trim at Home Depot). We found it ridiculous since it was in the conversation since the beginning. Basically, the more we worked with Sparkle, the more we realized they could not be trusted to do the work they promised or use the best quality material. I wished they would have been open and honest about everything from the beginning but this did not happen. The only good thing about our experience was working with Chris, the electrician. But in the future we will contract with him directly.
