We used Preprite in December 2020 to paint the exterior of our home. We worked with Josh Landau to estimate and sell the job. Josh is awesome. He's straightforward about what they can and can not do, straightforward on price, and very flexible as I had a handful of "demands" I needed to be taken into account with the job. We had David as the main crew manager. He was awesome, Very detail oriented and accommodating to my slightly OCD self. And, he works very hard. The exterior turned out so well, we hired them to come back in January to do our kitchen cabinets. The process they use is unbelievably detail oriented and leaves as close as a factory finish on the cabinets and cabinet doors as you can possibly get on 10-year old Hickory cabinets. Where Preprite isnt the cheapest painting option out there, you definitely get what you pay for with them. These guys are the real deal - transparent, honest, fair priced, and they produce an excellent result.

We used Prep-Rite to pressure wash our house, as well as paint our porch/rails and repaint some areas of the house that had had the paint eroded from water. Joshua Landau, the Regional Manager was fantastic, very professional responsive and the work crew did a fantastic job. We couldn't be happier with the outcome and would certainly use them again. I would highly recommend them!

While not finished with our house yet I couldn’t wait till they were done to write this. Harry and his crew have been outstanding to work with. Harry came out to give us the initial quote, again to review everything on the first day of the job and again today to make sure everything was going as planned and on time. His crew has been great, prepping each room fixing any nail pops or cracks before painting and have been very accommodating as my wife and I work from home. As we just moved in 2 weeks ago his crew changed their schedule the 3rd day just so the carpet people could do there job and get the new carpet installed. There workmanship is a First Class and the crew boss has help my wife when she was unsure of what color she should do. Finally and without us even saying a word, his crew stayed late last night to finish the 2nd coat in the master just so me and my wife had a bed to sleep in last night. In my 40 years of owning different houses and having various painters come in, I have NEVER had such a pleasant experience as this one. If your ever looking for someone for a painting job, I would recommend Prep-Rite be on the top of your list.

Prep-Rite has been around for a very long time, and we were very delighted to have them return. Joshua Landau, the Regional Manager, is incredibly professional, timely, extremely responsive, and their work crew is as well. Everyone is on time and the job done with wonderful detail. We are thrilled with our exterior carpentry repairs and painting. I cannot recommend them highly enough.

Harry and company performed the following:-re-stained older portions of deck-1st time stained new portions of deck and trash can enclosure.-painted walls, trim, house door, and window frames and floor of screened in porch-painted inside hallwayI am very pleased with the outcome. Harry was very professional and communicative. His team (lead by Hernan) was friendly and non-intrusive, and sought me out with questions (which i appreciated). I am also impressed by the quality of their work, it all looks great. I will be going straight back to Prep-Rite for future work.Side note, my neighbor had some inside painting performed (much of their first floor), and they were also very pleased with the work. I initially got a quote from a different (also excellent) company, but checked out Prep-Rite because of my neighbor's recommendation. Prep-Rite was cheaper and like i said, I'm very satisfied.

Outstanding service, beginning to end. Not the cheapest quote we received, but i could tell Harry genuinely cared about the quality of his team's work when he came to give us a quote, so we went with him. Had a large crew come and finished the job in one day... had 2 minor touch ups needed, he had someone here at 9am the following morning to fix it. I would highly recommend Harry and his company. Great work!

Harry, Josh and team took great care of us and performed great work painting the interior of our home. Their prices were reasonable, the work was excellent, and their timeline projections were accurate. The painters were professional and they are true to their name - they prepped and covered everything, going well above and beyond my expectations!

Prep-Rite's bid was competitive -- but not the least expensive one received. However, we knew they were highly respected in the neighborhood, and after meeting Harry, I sensed a level of integrity and customer focus that made me comfortable. It was absolutely the correct decision. The team was professional, courteous and highly-skilled. Our 20+ year old house and porches presented several unforeseen challenges that were resolved with a total emphasis on customer satisfaction. The results are beautiful and exceeded our expectations and prior experiences. Highly recommended.

After I realized I couldn't paint an entire house in 1.5 weeks and after getting various other estimates, we went with Prep-Rite and holy wow...am I glad I went with them. I gave them the smallest timeframe to work within. They delivered. They finished early even. They turned my 70s looking weird ranch into a beautiful country inspired place to call home. Everything ran through Josh and he was outstanding. Probably the best experience I've had with a business ever. He shifted schedules/projects to fit us in and even when I messed up financial stuff on my end, he was very patient and ridiculously accommodating. He even drove to my work to pickup a check I owed him. The people in the office are super nice too. I'm 99% sure that they apologized to me when I had to give them two forms of payment for the job. Come on...where are the 6 stars? I'm telling my family about these guys when they move down. If you're on the fence...go with them. And no, I do not know them personally but they made a huge impression.

Very happy with the exterior paint job done by Prep-Rite. We needed only the siding painted, not trim since it is vinyl or composite. A team of four showed up at 1:00 and did the job with brushes in a little over six hours. Very meticulous and we would call them again! Thanks to Joshua for the very fair price and Dave for coordinating the team.

For the past 8 years, we have trusted Prep-Rite with all our external painting, staining and wood repair. Mr. Pappas is an expert at serving specific customer needs - he listens to what we would like to have done, makes appropriate suggestions, and puts the right team in place to follow through with the plan. We will continue to return to Prep-Rite for our painting and staining needs.

We had some specific needs to get our house ready for sale. We ask for some extra things to be done and Prep-Rite and Josh came through. Their work was very good and the crew was responsive. The paint job looked great! This company will not nickel and dime you like others do.

Prep-rite did an amazing job transforming the exterior look of our house. The crew was courteous, cleaned up each night before they left, paid attention to all the details and Josh visited our home throughout the crew's time at our house to check on things and make sure we were pleased with the ways things were going. I would highly recommend Prep-rite to my friends and neighbors.

I've hired Prep-Rite Painting for a few large, interior residential projects. Their work is consistent, detailed, and polished. I would consider myself to be one of their pickiest customers, yet they fulfill all of my ridiculous requests with smiles on their faces and picture perfect results. If you're looking for a top quality painting services, the team at Prep-Rite Painting are the best in the Triangle, hands down.

This is the second home I have had painted by Prep-Rite. They are outstanding and I couldn't recommend them any more strongly. Their staff is very courteous and conscientious, and the quality of the work they do is simply the best I see in my neighborhood and others. Even more impressive is the other house they painted for me first was about 8 years ago and the quality of their work has remained stellar over both jobs 8 years apart. 5-Stars only because that's as high as it allows me to rate them.

From the first interaction with Karen Pappas at Prep-Rite the whole experience (house power wash, room painting, back porch painting, deck staining) was first class. Josh Landau managed the project from start to finish and couldn't have been more communicative and on point. Always returned calls quickly, always attentive. The entire painting team were professional, courteous and did a terrific job. Quick, efficient and high quality. I'll be calling Prep Rite for any and all my painting work from now on. Just flat out great.

I'm really happy with the job Luis and his crew did. Josh Landau was out often to check on the work and make sure the crew was cleaning up behind themselves. The carpenter they arranged to work on our house, Ivan, was as good as the painters. The whole experience was easy. I highly recommend.

I just finished using Josh and the team at Prep-Rite to paint my entire house and am very happy with the result. The estimate all the way through to execution was detailed and well done. They communicated with me well so I knew what was going on every step of the way. This team covered my entire home in plastic before starting any work. They taped everything. They took their shoes off while in the house. The site leader, David, was on top of all the details and it was clear that he really cared about doing high quality work. They happily touched up any areas that I wasn't completely satisfied with. I am a hard to please customer and would say that these guys are the first painters I've ever used where I was actually pleased with the result. I've never used a painter before that I would use a second time, but I'm happy to say that I will definitely be using Prep-Rite again in the future.

We used Prep-Rite to paint the inside of our former house. When my brother decided to relocate, we called them to paint his interior as well as all wood and foundation pieces on the outside. Josh and the crew did an outstanding job both inside and outside. The exterior was a challenge because it rained nearly the whole week that they were painting. We visited them once to check on progress and they were busy protecting the new floors and staging furniture left in the house. They painted all of the ceilings, closets, walls, doors, and the floor and door/window trim. It looked better than a "new" house when they were finished.

Prep-Rite painted the interior of my home last spring. We obtained several quotes. Prep-Rite's quote was substantially lower than most that we obtained. To our delight, lower price DID NOT mean lower quality. The company demonstrated excellence in every aspect of the project. The office staff was attentive to our individual concerns and needs. The project manager was on site at the start of work and came to the job site twice to check on the painting crew's progress. The crew was polite and unobtrusive; they kept the work area clean. They were skilled painters, who took time to thoroughly protect our furnishings and to carefully prepare the surfaces to take the paint. Prep-Rite did an exemplary job; I would use them again. The only downside was that we do not speak Spanish, and the painting crew did not speak English. The crew leader understood English but could speak it only well enough to communicate very basic ideas. Fortunately, the project manager was on hand to interpret the one time that the language barrier became a problem.

We used Prep-Rite to brush paint our house and they did an excellent job! Their work is very meticulous and so is their clean up. The crew leader David made sure that everything was done just how we wanted and even when I suggested a short cut, he talked me out of it as he didn't think we would be pleased in the end with the short cut and he was so right. Due to the rain changing the schedule a little, I was already committed to be out of town and was not comfortable with the windows being opened while I was gone so they changed their painting schedule to accommodate us. We can not say enough about how pleased we are with their work! Excellent job!
