“My home got transformed recently. RP’s painting services consulted with me on my options and then performed eight interior and exterior projects. Initially, I only planned for two, but they were affordable and the quality of the painting was excellent. Because Rich is a reliable and trustworthy painter, I later gave him a house key and left town while he did everything exactly as discussed and written. No surprises, except that things went smoother than I thought and the new colors look great.” Brian Andrew (Magnolia Preserve in Julington Creek) May 2012

It really was just a pleasant experience for us and our home looks fantastic!”

I was referred to Richard Powell by my realtor prior to listing my property for sale. Richard returned my call promptly and was able to meet me at the property for an estimate in a very short period of time. Richard walked the property and worked with me to provide a quote that was not only fair but including everything I needed to give my property a face lift. He even helped me choose a color. We set up a time and date for him to start and he kept to his word. His work was amazing and transformed my entire property. When I walked in to the property after he was done, it looked brand new. He patched all the holes, pressure washed the entrance, painted the entrance, did the trim work and painted the entire house. Richard is reliable and affordable which makes the process that much easier. If I ever find myself needing someone to paint a space again, Richard is the guy I would call.

Sarah DePeri Contract Specialist at Mayport March 2017

I am very happy with the results of RP's Painting. They are very friendly, professional and polite. They always replied to my emails in a timely matter and addressed all of my concerns“ Richard accepted all my changes to the contract without argument. They arrived to do the work on the day they had scheduled us and finished 1 day early. Their work on the exterior of our house went flawlessly, including scraping away the old chipped paint, caulking where necessary, using a primer when necessary and cleaning up after they finished. Richard pointed out an area of my roof soffit that needed to be replaced, and gave me the name of a carpenter that could do the work. Will use them again in the future.

David Ogburn, Fruit Cove, March 2017

From the initial estimate to painting the entire outside of my house, Richard was professional, timely and communicative. He was incredibly respectful of my home and cleaned up completely at the end of each day. Working with Richard was incredibly pleasant and he is easy to work with! The finished product looks beautiful! I highly recommend Richard for any paint job.”.

Heidi Katz, JCP April 2017

‘We hired Richard to paint the exterior part of our house. He gave us a price quote within a few hours of the request - and the price was very reasonable. Richard and his helper completed the job in a timely manner and was always in communication with us. Due to the rain during this period of time, he even finished the job later in the week so the house would be dry when applying the paint. We love the end result! “

Janet Matthews, St. Johns off 210, May 2017

We were extremely pleased with the referral we received from a friend regarding Richard Powell. Richard is extremely professional, has an incredible work ethic and is meticulous. He painted the interior of our entire home and we have yet to find a random drop of paint! By far, Richard’s work is the best we have seen over the years. He was very accommodating regarding our needs and took the time to ensure we were happy with our choices of color and texture of paint before beginning the project. We highly recommend Richard for all of your painting projects. We will be calling him again soon to begin the painting of the exterior of our home. We guarantee that you will be very happy with the painting services of Richard!

Jim and Diana Peaks, St. Johns, September 2017

RP's painting is a family business. Richard and his sons painted our house and did a phenomenal job. There were no shortcuts. The prep work was thorough and meticulous. The house looks great. It was all done on time and for the estimate given. I highly recommend using them.

Brian DeAlexandris St. Johns, December 2017

My wife, Sally and I have just had the outside of our home completely pressure washed and painted by RP's Painting. We were incredibly happy with the job that owner, Richard Powell did for us. The thorough and professional job that Richard did is beautiful. Richard went above and beyond to make us happy in both quality and cost. In the last year we have had our home both remodeled and then repaired after Hurricane Irma with many workers in and out of our home. We rate Richard the highest of all them in quality, professionalism, cost, and integrity. Our neighbors have even commented on how good our home looks and how quickly and thorough a job Richard did. We truly love the looks of our home.

Richard and his crew recently painted my house. I was extremely pleased with the professionalism and efficiency of Richard and his crew. They first pressure washed my house, caulked the hairline cracks in the stucco and then painted. They left no mess, no paint drippings anywhere and did not disturb the neighbors with loud music. Richard kept me updated on their progress and completed the project ahead of schedule. I highly recommend Richard and his crew for any painting projects. A definite FIVE Star rating.

We love the job RP Painting did on our home. They provided a totally professional process from their bid to their completion of painting. They were not satisfied with the job until we were satisfied with their work. The folks from RP Painting are polite, thoughtful and professional. I will recommend RP Painting to anyone who has painting needs.

Richard painted the exterior of my stucco home. I'm pretty sure I have the best looking house on my street, now! He did a phenomenal job! Not only was he professional, on time, and diligent, he went above and beyond to make sure it was done right. When he wasn't happy with the paint quality in a small area, he took it upon himself to spend just a little more time to get it perfected. He got the job done quickly and kept the site clean and tidy.

So, I said to my wife "I'm going to paint the house, it's due!

Why you old fool it will take you forever, you'll fall off the ladder and break a hip, find a pro to do it.

I did, Richard Powell of RP's Painting was recommended and lucky us, he took the job.

He and his crew appeared as promised, on time loaded with skills, energy and drive.

They did a hell of a job, quickly, neatly and left with all in order.

I do not limp and as an old guy, I am proud of and admire Richard's work ethic and best of all my wife thinks I'm a hero for locating RP"s Painting.

Well Done, you cannot go wrong hiring RP's Painting!

I highly recommend RP's Painting after he completed the painting of my home in Cunningham Creek in June '21. His dedication and expertise was obvious. From our initial discussion regarding paint product choices, all the way to the finishing touches. Due to the project being a wooden home, there was significant scraping and caulking that could have easily been otherwise quickly painted over by someone in a hurry. However, Richard and his men, spent the necessary time in regards to proper prep work required. His attention to detail resulted in a quality finished product.

I highly recommend RP's Painting and Richard Powell. Richard was outstanding to work with during the entire process. Our house is about 20-year-old stucco and had never been repainted. Our home now looks brand new after he finished. He and his assistant finished on time and left my yard spotless. I could tell the pride he takes in his work and have already recommended him to several of my friends. This was the 2nd time I have used RP Painting and will certainly use Richard again for my next project.

Richard and his crew painted the entire interior of our home in 3 days. They did a wonderful job and were very professional, punctual, and tidy. They did quality work and made sure everything was just right before wrapping up the project. I highly recommend them and will be using them for any future paining needs!

Richard and his team did a fantastic job painting our house. My wife and I were a little indecisive on how much we wanted painted at first and we ended up painting the entire interior. Richard was patient and flexible with our changes in direction and completed the job in far less time than we expected. I’ve had several people come out and see the house since it was done and they all raved about how professional the paint looks and how it makes the house look brand new. We plan on having Richard paint a few rooms in our old house before we put it on the market.

Richard with RP's Painting did a wonderful job painting the exterior of our home.  He was able to work around our schedule since we had to wait for our community approval colors.  Richard was also patient as I made some last minute changes to the job. Most importantly, he and his son showed up exactly when they said they would and were very neat, cleaning up thoroughly at the end of the day. I can't recommend them enough.  As a matter of fact, I recommend them to all my clients.

We recently hired RP Painting to paint the common spaces and ceilings in our home. Richard came out and walked us through the estimate, making the process easy. When we went to select paint colors, the staff at the Sherman Williams store stated that they knew Richard and assured us that he was highly skilled and well respected in the trades. He and his team were on time, professional, and very courteous. They did an outstanding job in a timely manner, always cleaning up at the end of the day. My wife and I highly recommend RP's Painting!

We just had our whole interior painted by RP’s Painting Company! Our ceilings are tall & our rooms are full so it was no easy task. Richard and his son came each day and worked diligently all day. The whole process was so smooth and professional, and we couldn’t be happier with the results! We would highly recommend him and already have to some of our neighbors!

We recently decided it was time to paint the entire interior and get rid of the builder grade that they call paint. Richard responded to my call requesting an estimate and came by the next day and had a bid by the afternoon. Gary and I were having problems deciding the color of paint - he wanted darker, I wanted lighter. Thanks to RIchard's guidance we were able to agree on a color and we love the color that we chose. Would not have happen without his help. Richard and his son were the ultimate professionals, on time every morning and did a wonderful job! We will definitely refer him to our friends and when it's time to paint again...we'll call RP's Painting.

Richard and his son are awesome! We contracted them to repaint the entire interior of our 25-year-old house that we just recently purchased. They were prompt, professional, and meticulous. The new paint looks fantastic on the walls and moldings and makes the house look and feel like brand new. I highly recommend RP's Painting; they will do a world class job for you.

Richard and his son did such a meticulous job. Our thirty-year-old house really needed paint. Their experience really helped us understand drivit stucco difficulties and paint choices. The prep work was  impressive and high quality paint gave us a "like new" result. Each day they were on time. They were careful and considerate. Each day they cleaned up without a trace. We recommend them to you if you need a reliable, experienced and honest painters.
