My CertaPro Painters Experience: Before & After (photos)

I always love to share when I’ve had a good experience when it comes to quality and customer service, especially when it comes to hiring a contracI recently went with CertaPro Painters because of their reputation of top-notch quality service from beginning to end, and challenged them with walls and unique rooms that I had struggled with for years.

For example, my mid-century stone fireplace in my living room that I wanted to accent with a color that would make it ‘pop’ and add and room depth.

CertaPro took into consideration all the colors in my kitchen, and theme of the rest of the house and nailed it! Bringing it all together with just one wall with a color I would not have come up with on my own.   What a difference!  (and what GREAT CARE they took of my things:)

Now check out my downstairs (the ‘kid-cave’ we call it) with the copper fireplace insert, too expensive to replace (and it works just fine). But because of CertaPro Painters, my downstairs rec-room is now a fun & cozy play area AND updated in a way that now showcases the fireplace wall without costing us a small fortune!


Notice how they made the brick stand out, and fireplace now looks more ‘today’ with a throwback feel to my mid-century home.


I found the work ‘personal’ and there’s something to be said about the word ‘Pro’, and that’s just what they are. Honest, detailed, clean, respectful and they deliver on expectations.  Yes I do endorsement work for CertaPro, but only after my personal experience first and I was happy to be a voice for them in the Northwest.

CertaPro Painters ROCK!   Take a look at your EXTERIOR, maybe change up the INTERIOR like I did, either way please consider CertaPro Painters and feel free to use me as a referral!
