Comments: James Leigh and his crew did a great job of removing the popcorn from our ceilings. The new ceilings look great. James was very fair with the pricing despite discovering early on the project that it was going to take additional work that wasn't originally anticipated. They were also able to get us back in the house as quickly as possible.

Review Date: 02/03/2020 | Author: Julie F.

Comments: Highly recommend Leighs Painting. They completely repainted the exterior of my home. Did a great job preparing the house before starting - power washing, caulking, covering rusty nails, covering porch areas with paper, and doing minor repairs. The crew worked steadily and efficiently and were very friendly. Cleaned up every day so the job site was not a mess. Company owner checked in with the crew and with me on a regular basis. The cost was very reasonable. Getting lots of compliments from my neighbors on how well the new paint job looks.

Excellent work, price is competitive, and customer service is outstanding! Thank you!

Review Date: 08/22/2018 | Author: Deborah H.

Comments: Leigh's Painting exhibited a good attitude. They began work at the specified time and worked all day. They painted the porch, the back and front steps on my elevated home, and the back deck. Following having my house washed, these all had looked bad with most of previous stain gone. They applied two coats of solid stain. All looked really nice. Also there was a problem with a wall in the entryway. They removed the damaged drywall, took care of the problem, and then patched the wall. When painted, it looked perfect. There was no sign of repair. I would gladly recommend Leigh's Painting for painting and drywall repair. In fact, I plan to employ them again very soon to repair a larger drywall project in my breakfast and dining areas.

Comments: Leigh's Painting completed finishing drywall for me in two places in my home. James answered the phone after 5:00 PM and had someone on site the next day. I feel James's price was fair. His professional drywall guy Travis was on time, respectful & cleaned up well after the job was complete. I will be using them again if I have any drywall projects in the future.

Comments: We hired Leigh Painting to scrape popcorn ceilings and paint them in our home before we moved in. During our initial consultation with James, we were impressed by his thoroughness as he really took the time to assess the scope of work and gave us what we felt was a fair price. They started the Thursday before Thanksgiving and we hoped the project would be done in a week so we could host Thanksgiving at our new home. James' crew showed up early that first morning and did a thorough job putting up plastic on the walls and floors before they started. We had scraped popcorn ceilings in our previous home and knew how much of a mess it is so we were grateful they took the time to properly plastic everything. They were able to scrape all of the ceilings that first day which was incredible (the popcorn was not painted). They had quite a bit of repair work to do and used an oil based primer to ensure any areas that had seen some water damage would not seep through the paint ever. The crew even worked on Saturday to ensure the job was done in a timely manner. They finished the entire job in just 4 days and it looked incredible. I would (and have already to friends) highly recommend James and his team.

Review Date: 08/11/2017 | Author: Byron C.

Comments: Prior to reaching agreement, we both knew that the job was not routine because of a previous contractor's poor work. James was very professional and up front. We initially agreed on a course that did not pan out, through no fault of his. We renegotiated a different path which worked out beautifully. He and his crew stayed long hours to complete the job before the weekend. My wife and I are delighted with the finished product. We highly recommend his company.

Review Date: 07/08/2017 | Author: Jason C.

Comments: James Leigh and his team are consummate professionals. They painted our backyard fence and made sure to take the time and care to make it beautiful. As particular as we are, we couldn't be more impressed. James is customer-centric, meticulous, and an excellent communicator that understands his clients' needs. I am saving Leigh's Painting & Contracting as my go-to source for any/all future needs. I highly recommend that you do the same. James - thank you again for your outstanding work!

Comments: Mr. Leigh arrived on time for the job.It ended up being a larger job than expected but continued until it was complete. He suggested the bathrooms would look better if painted. He took a sample from each room and bought the paint and returned the next afternoon to finish the job. Before he left he rehung towel racks and made sure everything suited me. I would most definitely call him again for another job.

Review Date: 11/16/2015 | Author: Rick and kathy G.

Comments: My wife and I were in a desperate situation, because of the hiring of a local contractor, to convert our ceilings from popcorn to slick. They did such a terrible terrible job and actually had to be fired in the middle of the project. James, of Liegh's Painting and Contracting came to our rescue! which was such a blessing and God thing, an answer to our prayers! We found them by going through "Home Advisory". James called us within 15 minutes of us contacting home advisory and visited us the next day to view what was done and what it was going to take to get our home back to the condition that both himself and we would be proud of. James actually sat down and we talked for over an hour after he already worked a full day! James is different than any contractor you are going to be in contact with, I guarantee it! Because He and His Crew Sincerely CARE and They Take Personal Pride in Their Work. He has had his very dependable and trustworthy crew for over 15 years now! James and his crew basically had to redo everything the previous contractor did, in our home, to meet his standards of excellence, which actually exceeded ours. I know this sounds to good to be true in this day and age because it's so hard to find a dependable contractor you can trust that will do a great job, BUT! You Don't Have Too Look Any Further! James' crew for our home, consisted of James, Ron and Ernesto. They did such an awesome job with the ceilings that we ended up doing an additional contract, we added the painting of all of the rooms in the house. James allowed us to pick out all the colors and use the best Sherwin Williams paints at a great cost! From James crew, Ron did the majority of the painting in our house and actually completed several of the ceilings. (Our home looks like a show room now!) For Ron, I can't say enough about this man! Such a warm soul, his attention to detail, his work ethic and sense of pride he showed by getting the job right was unmatched by any! You will see all of the traits that James possess; the honesty, the sense of pride, the compassion and professionalism, throughout his crew. We are so blessed to have had Leigh's Painting and Contracting in our home, the memories will last forever! Thank you; James, Ron and Ernesto! :)

Comments: Went thru Home Advisor on a holiday, James called back with in an hour. Came the next day with Ron, gave me a quote, got the paint, repaired the dry wall and worked until the job was done. Looks fantastic. They will be coming back to remove popcorn ceiling and refinish the kitchen cabinets. Prompt very nice and do great work.

Review Date: 08/27/2015 | Author: Lauren R.

Comments: Working with James Leigh was easy and super fast. I submitted for a job through Home Advisor (on a Monday) and he contacted me within an hour. He came by the next day (Tuesday), and the project was started the day after that (Thursday) and finished by Friday afternoon. Price was great and James was very helpful. He offered to get the paint himself, but because I wasn't sure which color I wanted, I needed to get it myself. He was super helpful in referring the best quality paint and making sure we got his contractor discount and didn't have to pay full price for the paint.

Review Date: 08/24/2015 | Author: Craig M.

Comments: Fantastic experience. First class communication and extraordinarily timely service for an emergency repair. James very clearly cares about his craft and your needs, and the quality of his work attests to this. I would highly recommend him and will use him again. Grateful to find him!!!

Comments: James called immediately after receiving my request through Home Advisor. He was able to give me a quote within the hour after sending him a picture of the stress fracture on my wall and came out the next day (on time!!) to start the job. As promised, and again on time, he showed up the following day to complete the work. Ernesto, his assistant, did a fabulous job and I highly recommend using Leigh's Paining and Contracting not only based on the above but also his fair pricing.

Review Date: 08/09/2015 | Author: Marc R.

Comments: Professional, quick, high quality...not many people left like him these days. Price was fair also.

Comments: James gave me a great quote, we set the date for the repair, he was there on time. The job was a little more intensive than he originally thought but he took it in stride. The job turned out great, his asst. Ron did an amazing job with the mudding of the drywall and the painting. I would highly reccommened them to anyone and if need be I will not hesitate to call them again. Great job.

Comments: We worked with James directly. We needed some internal wood walls stained to match the existing finish, and he really took great care to make sure we were happy with his work; very detail oriented, which is refreshing for contractor type work.

Review Date: 03/29/2015 | Author: Doug T.

Comments: We are new to the area. Our home had a new AC unit installed in the attic without the drain line connected prior to us moving in. We had a mess of a ceiling when the water came flowing thru. I contacted Mr. Leigh solely based on this website and the reviews below. My work schedule makes it difficult for me coordinate any home repairs. Mr.Leigh is the exception to my experience with General Contractors. He just asked for me to call him when I had a window of time. He and his staff, as noted in other reviews, were punctual, courteous and professional. They forfeited a weekend to help me. They asked if I'd mind if they just worked the job to completion to save time and help me with my schedule. They stayed until completion. I'm very grateful to see a company that put the customers needs first. The workmanship very much exceeded my expectations and at a fair price. Thanks Mr. Leigh and staff!

James was willing to come out within 30 minutes of the initial call to look at the job and give me a price, even though it was 7pm. His pricing was fair, especially for the quality of work. Couldn't be more pleased with the work and will be recommending him as often as possible.
