Doug Gorton Professional Painting
207 W Saint Johns Ave, Austin, TX 78752
Doug and his crew just finished another job for my design firm and did a great job!
They showed up on time, finished on time and left the job clean and my client's happy.
Archie the Operations Manager and Liz the Office Manager are great to work with and take care of any of my clients needs immediately.
They are never my lowest bids, but I never have to worry whether they will do a good job, babysit or police them.
My years of experience has taught me that the low bid hardly ever works out, can be problematic and needs lots of managing from me, which does not make it a good value in the end.
And what I truly want more than a low price is peace of mind for me and my client's.
This is the fourth job that they have completed for us in the last year and I kept promising them I would post a review and now I have kept my promise.
I will use them again, and recommend them to all my friends and clients.

Doug Gorton professionally faux painted interior walls (including a brick fireplace) and ceilings in our home, as per our interior decorator's design. We were totally satisfied with the subtle appearance of the faux painting and the quality of the work. His workers were friendly and clean cut. I would not hesitate to recommend Doug Gorton to anyone who appreciates and expects quality workmanship.

We were extremely pleased with the results of using Doug Gorton Professional Painting. From the initial job site quotation process to the final finished product, this firm is the most professional and highest quality painting firm that we have used in our over 30 years as home owners.\n\nWe will definitely use them again and highly recommend then!
I am pleased with the quality of work in the repainting of the exterior of my house. Doug was professional and thorough in his initial discussions and the bid was detailed and professional with competitive, fair prices. There were some delays in getting started, but his crew was thorough, careful, and friendly. The quality of work and care around the house was very satisfactory. There was also good follow up by Doug to ensure satisfaction. I would definitely use Doug's team again
I was very pleased with a room painting, and recommend to anyone. The guys were very thorough and dedicated (and energetic!). It was clear they knew their subject and how to get good results. I'll have more painting to come, and will definitely be calling them again.

My house looks new. Doug and his team did a wonderful job. The bid was exact, no guessing what was to be done. They finished on time and addressed all of my concerns. I would recommend Professional Painting without hesitation. Excellent.\nThanks Doug and Lourdes.

I could not be more happy with the job Doug Gorton and his crew did. The initial discussions were helpful, the bid was detailed and professional. The job itself was simply exceptional: the crew was unbelievably thorough, careful, and friendly. And they work fast! The house never looked better. I give Doug four thumbs up.

Doug's crew was great to work with. They did exactly what was asked for (painting of master bath) and in a timely manner. The paint job looked very good and I will be calling them again for more work. I'm used to painters that do not show up and when they eventually do they vent cigarette stench outside your front door. Not with these guys. They were very considerate and even gave me some insight on what they were working on. Doug himself comes in exactly on time, reviews what to quote (on many areas) and leaves in about 10 minutes. He's very professional and very fast. I got the written quote right away which swayed me even more to work with them.The reviews were what led me to his company and it appears that they are correct!

I received Doug's name from several other folks that have used him in our neighborhood. Doug helped get our house ready to sell. He rearranged their schedule to accommodate the short notice and his crew did a fantastic job. They painted almost the complete interior and the front of the house. The mahogany wood door was restored and it looks good as new! They estimated that it would take three days and held to the schedule. I would recommend them to do any painting jobs you need completed on schedule. He gets the job done.

I recently bought a new house and wanted some rooms painted before moving in. Based on the reviews, I decided to give Doug a try. I am very happy that I did! He came out to give me an estimate, which I had in writing before the end of the day, and then worked with my tight time schedule to ensure completion of the job before my actual move-in date. He gave me good advice on what sheen to use (which I love!) and his attention to detail rivals mine (for which I drive others crazy because I notice things others don't). I am a perfectionist, so when Doug noticed a slight sheet rock imperfection in one accent wallI once it was painted red, and then came back the next day to fix the imperfection and repaint the area, without me having to request it AND at no additional charge to me I might add, I was very impressed! My questions were always answered promptly and courteously. \n\nIf you are looking for someone that is easy to work with, responsive, efficient, detail-oriented, mindful of your needs, and fairly priced, then look no further! I plan to have a couple more rooms painted before too long and I will definitely be calling Doug.....

If you don't want to have a bad experience, call Doug. Our house is a difficult house and I am a very detailed oriented homeowner. We initially paid another painting contractor 20% deposit for exterior paint. The work was never started. He was fired, refused to refund our deposit and now we are out that money. After viewing all the reviews, I decided to take the risk and call Doug on a Saturday; late in the afternoon. Doug came over the next day, Sunday and said we would have within 24hrs. a written bid. He also said should we accept the bid, that they typically start within 1-2 weeks and the crew stays until finished.\nDoug followed through on everything he promised. He is customer satisfaction oriented. His pricing is in the middle; not the highest we received and not the lowest. He uses quality paint and puts 2 coats on. Sure enough on Tuesdsay, we had 4 worker's starting the prep work. They took off all the window screens, washed all the windows, our light fixtures, even our bar-b-que grill. Covered our pool so we wouldn't get any material in it from the sanding. I even changed the paint color and the crew put 3 coats of paint on our house with a smile. Doug ensures at the end of job, homeowner is totally happy. I had several small requests to complete the job and those were addressed. Save yourself time, money and the headache of finding a painter that is reputable, reliable, reasonably priced, shows up, does great work, does what is promised and completes the job. Call Doug!\nThank you Doug! House looks great!

I was really blow away how professional my living room paint job was done and also how Doug Gorton Professional Painting re-did my fireplace. The crew is very professional and did a outstanding job. I'm very excited and looking forward to getting my front door re-paint and stained. I would highly recommend everyone who comes to this website to call for a free estimate like I did. You will be one very satisfied customer.

I would highly recommend Doug Gorton Professional Painting for interior and exterior home painting. His company did interior work for me last year and just recently completed an exterior painting job on a large rental property. Doug and his crews are great to work with. They are very professional and do extremely high quality work.

I am very happy with the work Doug and his team did for me. Doug is experienced enough to quickly give an accurate bid. His crews are experts at what they do. They worked around my moving boxes and new kittens! They are friendly and trustworthy. I have had people ask me for Doug's number so they can call him. I will be calling Doug back in 2011.
For the last 3 or 4 yrs Doug and his crews have done all interior and exterior painting of both our home and the apt. Here are the characteristics that they have demonstrated:\n\n1. Doug provides prompt and competitive bids;\n2. When the apt needs immediate attention between renters, he gets the job done quickly and the results are always excellent;\n3. He and his crews know the particular requirements of keeping older structures in great shape, and they pay special attention to details that even my wife and I don't find on our own;\n4. When they are done with a job, the place looks practically brand new;\n5. This is where his crews' high standards and attention to detail really pays off. They carefully search for every flaw and do whatever it takes to correct the problem. The result is near perfection every time.\n\nIn sum, Doug Gorton and company do the best work of all the painters we've ever used. The results are always top quality and long lasting. I'd recommend him to anyone wanting great results.
Hiring Doug Gorton to paint the interior of our 2500 sq ft home was one of the best decisions I've ever made as a homeowner. Doug gladly came all the way out to our home a second time to discuss colors with me, and he did not steer me wrong. I am delighted with every color we chose and even more delighted with the quality of the work. The application where the colors meet the white ceilings and baseboards is virtually perfect. We have several accent walls with a light color facing an adjoining wall painted a darker color, and the line between light and dark color is perfect. I don't think you could ask for a higher quality paint job than Gorton's crew provided. Since they painted our home, I find myself checking out the paint in other people's homes, and there is simply no comparison to my home. I had another company bid on the job in addition to Doug, and while Doug was more expensive, it was only by about $200. Plus the crew finished the job well ahead of schedule and left our home much cleaner than I'd expected; they even swept our dining room and foyer before they left. Hiring Doug's company was money well spent. Our home looks gorgeous!

When researching painting the exterior of my house, I began with Austin Best Contractors, where Doug Gorton was listed. I reviewed the comments made regarding his service and contacted him for a quote. His reputation rang true. They were prompt, professional and concientious. I was having diffuclty picking out a color scheme, but Doug made a special trip to my home to help with the decision. We LOVE it. The curbside appeal of our home now feels warm and inviting. I will be using their service for any furture painting needs.
