"After searching the CCO page for painters and recommendations, I gave Josh with A Painters Touch, LLC a call. Josh had planned on having a day for himself but after telling him that this was the second time I had cleared the room to be painted only to be stood up, he stepped up to knock out the job and within an hour the room was on it's way to a new color. He was prompt, courteous, neat, professional and did a fantastic job. If you have any painting or pressure washing needs I would highly recommend giving him a call. Thanks Josh for a job well done!"
