What Others Say
What a privilege. Steve and his crew are the best paint company we've ever encountered. We gave them an unorthodox paint scheme for our home. In response, they brought color specialists, printed swatches for us and did several walkarounds to get the vision we had. But nothing compared to the work week. Steve's crew came in phases: power wash, patch, and prep and then there was the paint day. An army of 20+ guys showed up and finished our whole home in a day. The precision and attention to detail and care for our neighbors and plants were above reproach. Steve and his crew have made our home truly spectacular and we can't thank him enough for his professionalism and his commitment to making his customers happy no matter what. I would use Universal Paint for any paint job we have in the future. Thank you, Steve, Romo and "The Fellas"

I found Steve on Yelp, back in March. He came and walked around my home with me. I explained I was looking for a company that could not only paint but does dry root repair as well. He assured me he could do both. He let me know there was a home around the corner they had just completed. I did go by to see their work and was happy with what I saw. He gave me a quote that included the dry root repair. I was unable to get on the schedule til September 1st. It was worth the wait. August 31st the crew rolled in around 8 am, 10-12 strong. :-) The foreman, whose name I kept mispronouncing was great. The entire crew was pleasant and efficient. I am one of those people who likes to take before and after pictures and they were all good spirited about it.
They had painted my French doors the grey I had chosen for the body of the house but as it was going on I realized I really did not care for it. I felt the white of the trim would make them pop. They, without hesitation, repainted them per my request. Thank you all so much. They really do pop against the darker grey.
They found dryrot that was not identified during the initial walk thru, Steve, from New York, spoke to me, gave me an amazing price and promised that the foreman and a few other guys would be at my home the next day to repair and repaint. They arrived today and removed all of the dryrot, with a few prayers from us all there was no foundation damage and they were able to replace the siding and repaint.
I am so appreciative, this was a pleasant experience, the price was right and my home looks like new. Thanks to everyone at Universal Painting, I would definitely use them again. I have also recommended them to my neighbors...

I want to thank Steve Fitzpatrick and his crew for doing an excellent job painting my house! They showed up on time and were very efficient and professional. I feel that Steve has done a great job in creating a company that makes his clients feel like they are his friends. And that ability extends to his employees. After talking to a few of them they could not say enough good things about him! I know I made the right choice choosing Universal Painting! I would gladly recommend them!

Steve and his crew are amazing. Easy to work with and the painting is perfection. They have painted our exterior and interior several different jobs. They feel like family.
Isn't it awesome that you can trust everyone and know you will be given a great price and a perfect job? If you need a paint company look no further.

Steve and all of the crew at Universal Painting were fantastic. Communication from inquiry to quote, scheduling to the final product was excellent. Because of the very rainy winter, our date was pushed a little bit. Not a problem, because Universal communicated with us! On paint day, the crew arrived at the exact time we were told they would and they got to work. Steve arrived shortly after to review colors and color locations. He gave sound advice on which color to paint doors and trim. Our 3800+ square foot house was completed with EVERYTHING cleaned up within eight hours. We could not have asked for a better experience. Universal is busy and books out well in advance. They are worth the wait!

I had them do interior painting (walls, doors and ceilings) and stain a new stairway banister. The owner came over to my house before the project and made sure I was happy with the colors and stain. His team showed up the next day with a lot of guys, taped and tarped off everything, repaired some wall damage from the old banister and got the large project done very quickly. Great quality work and a competitive price. They aren't the cheapest in town but if you want to hire a painter who you know will get the job done right and quickly, without any stress, these are the guys to go with. I will use them again.

Just had my home in Hiddenbrooke painted by Steve @ Universal Painting. I have a strict HOA and Steve worked with me from day 1 getting the HOA approved color boards. He is very nice and easy to work with. His workers were great. They showed up on time and were very nice and professional. They replaced a lot of my wood trim as it was rotted away and did a fantastic job painting today. The home looks way better than it did when I bought it brand new. I can tell the quality difference in the paint they used vs the original coloring. I highly recommend this company to anyone that needs their home painted in the Solano area. If anyone has any questions about their work or wants to see any pictures of the final product please contact me on Yelp and I can share! THANK YOU UNIVERSAL PAINTING FOR THE GREAT JOB!!!

Universal Paint is fantastic! Steve first came to our house for a walk around to come up with a quote. He saw a few problem areas and pointed them out, some dry rot and rain gutters that needed replacing. He recommended a great contractor to do the work prior to paint. "Cost U Less Roofing". Another great company! Steve came by several times to answer questions, and help with paint color selections. What a great businessman! First-class customer service. Once the crew showed up for "paint day", WOW, look out. A large crew of highly experienced workers swarmed our house and completely transformed it in a day. If you are looking for "FIRST-CLASS" service, look no further. This is it, contact Universal Painting, sit back, and let the professionals do there work, the way it should be!

Thank you, Universal Painting Team. ALL of you are amazing! Though I struggled to pick just the right colors you made the best choices for that curb appeal. You knew what colors would go where, trim, body and accents.
When I turned the corner to come down my block my mouth dropped open! Beautiful! My purple door! Yes!
