From Our Customers

We used Trico for part of our kitchen remodel. They painted all of our cabinets (which was a lot) and had not been done in 20 years (we went from dark brown to a cool gray). They look completely refreshed and brand new. They also painted our downstairs interior, including a whole lot of trim, and everything looks great. — Christine M. / San Francisco, CA
Trico Painting did a beautiful job on the interior of my home. From Sawyer… the estimator, Marco… the supervisor who kept things on track and responded to my questions, to Marcelo, the job foreman, they did a top-notch job. They go out of their way to make it a seamless process. Would not use anyone but Trico! — Denise R. / Danville, CA
Trico did a fantastic job with our cabinets and banisters. I highly recommend them. Great job from prep to finish. — Dukes S. / San Francisco, CA
Wonderful company to work with, from Tim, the owner, to Jenny in the office coordinating everything, to Alex and his crew, who did a great job! On-time each day, fulfilled all that was promised, and it turned out fantastic. Highly recommended!!! — Gail G. / Rocklin, CA
Trico painted our interior a couple months ago, and they did a fantastic job...clean, polite and beautifully done. Marcus was super nice and very communicative. There was a small issue and owner Tim immediately called us...they came out and fixed it up, no problems. Would highly recommend. — J. M. / Granite Bay, CA
I couldn’t be happier with the job Trico Painting did on my kitchen cabinets. The painting crew was very careful to protect our home and belongings while they were working. They did an amazing job. The final result is beautiful, new-looking kitchen cabinets again. I will use Trico Painting for all of my painting needs from now on. I highly recommend them for anyone needing interior or exterior painting — Kathy S / Granite Bay, CA
Everyone was professional and friendly, and they answered all of my questions. I wasn’t sure what to expect for the first time painting my house. I budgeted $3k for the job, and I was pleased when the estimate came in under this figure. They were very conscientious of my multiple solar lights, ring cameras, and rose bushes. Nothing was damaged. The house looks beautiful. I was very happy with the job they did. — Laura M. / Roseville, CA
We just completed 3 projects with Trico Painting, and they were fantastic!! They were always on time, professional, detail-oriented, and exceeded our expectations! We would definitely recommend them for any painting projects! Thanks again! — Linda H. / El Dorado Hills, CA
Wanted to review Trico Painting and the great job they did painting my home. They arrived on time, did the work as promised, dealt with all minor touch-ups before they left, and cleaned up after themselves. They went out of their way to make sure my wife and I were happy with everything. The Sherwin Williams paint they used looks great. The colors came out just like the palette swatches from the manufacturer. Highly recommend. — Tim G / Rocklin, CA
Trico Painting completed painting the exterior of our house yesterday, and WE LOVE IT!!!! Throughout the job, the painters were very courteous, professional, cleaned up after themselves daily, and the quality of their work was outstanding! We are extremely happy with the outcome of our exterior painting project!! We will definitely use Trico again for any painting projects in the future. We highly recommend this company. — Tracey H. / Roseville, CA

FAQs

Whether you’re new to our website or have been an existing customer, we expect that you’ll have questions now and then. Below are some of the basic queries customers have asked over the years.

Will I see the grain pattern after you paint my cabinets?

The grain pattern on oak is nearly impossible to eliminate. The process we use does an outstanding job of minimizing the grain, but does not entirely eliminate it.

Do you paint the cabinets at my home or take them to your shop?

All of the work we do is performed at the job site. We do not take cabinets away from your home. A majority of the work we do is in your garage. We will need a considerable amount of room to set up our equipment and spray booth.

Does the paint have a strong odor?

The primer does have a strong odor. We recommend that you stay away from the areas we are spraying in to avoid any issues with your respiratory system or eye irritation.

Will we be able to stay in the home during the project?

You are welcome to stay in your home during the project. Many of our customers do. Please keep in mind that areas we are painting will be out of service for the project’s duration t. We also advise our clients to have an overnight bag packed before the project starts in case the odors or the construction site become unbearable.

Do you offer staining or glazing?

We do not offer staining or glazing because the products that are necessary to complete the project have been eliminated from the marketplace by the Environmental Protection Agency. As a result of this action, the cost to strip your pre-existing finish is more expensive than buying a new door. We do offer staining services for new work or new doors that do not need to be stripped.

Do I have to empty my cabinets?

We ask that our customers empty the drawers and any cabinets with glass doors. We also require our customers to move the refrigerator away from any cabinets that we will be painting.

How do I take care of the cabinets and what about chipping?

The cabinets are easy to maintain. We recommend a soft microfiber rag with warm water or Dawn detergent. Do not use any cleaning products on your cabinets. Touching up chips is very simple and we will explain the process when we complete your project. Chips can happen, but they are easily repaired.

Is there a project manager onsite during the job?

There is a Foreman - Crew Leader on every project. We will introduce you to each other at the beginning of your project. Our Project Managers will visit your home to make sure everything is running smoothly.

How long will my job take?

Each job is unique and depends on how many cabinets and how many areas we are working in. A large kitchen typically takes 4-5 days to complete.

What can happen to a homeowner in California if one doesn't hire a licensed contractor?

  1. Without a licensed contractor, you are legally considered the “Employer” of the crew working on your property. As such, you are responsible for following all the rules of CAL/OSHA and the State of California and be financially liable for any injuries or inadequate workmanship.
  2. Should you wish to sell that property later and it cannot pass inspection, you have no recourse but to repair the poor workmanship at your own expense.
  3. Should your insurance find out you hired an unlicensed contractor, they can, and most likely will, deny financial responsibility for any repairs resulting from the unlicensed contractor.
  4. Should the repairs or injury liability be too great, your insurance could drop you.
  5. If your mortgage agency becomes aware that you no longer have insurance, you could be forced to buy insurance at a much higher cost or risk the forced sale of your property if you cannot pay the balance due on your mortgage.
  6. Should an unlicensed contractor or their employees get injured on your property, you can be sued personally. See items 3, 4, and 5.
  7. If you hire an unlicensed contractor, you are rescinding your homeowner’s rights to State help in a dispute. The state of California only represents homeowners who hire licensed contractors.
  8. Should an injury occur, the State Contractor’s Board can fine you for not hiring a licensed contractor. See items 3, 4, and 5.

Hiring a licensed contractor in the State of California does not ensure that job mishaps do not occur. However, it helps protect you, your home and your rights when you hire a licensed contractor. Things like insurance, proper training of employees, home and employee safety all cost money. Think before you “save money” by hiring an unlicensed contractor.

How long will my job take?

That depends on what the project involves. We’ll be able to give you an estimate after we speak with you and see the home.

How do I choose colors?

Choosing colors can be a daunting task for most homeowners. Fortunately, there are many tools and resources available to help with this process. You may want to consider a Color Consultant to assist you with selecting colors for your home. Be sure to check their credentials. Color Consultants should be ASID Certified at the very minimum. Websites such as Houzz and Pinterest have some great color ideas that may inspire you. All paint stores have color racks and stick and peel samples that you can bring home to try out before choosing your final colors. 

Do you replace damaged or rotten trim or siding?

Unfortunately, we are not licensed to do carpentry work and do not replace damaged wood trim or siding. We can recommend a licensed contractor that has experience working with our customers.

What type of preparation can I expect?

We go above and beyond when it comes to preparing your home for painting. A quality paint job is based on quality prep. That’s why we go the extra mile in making sure your paint job lasts for years to come. You will receive a detailed estimate outlining all of the items that are included in our process.

Here is a list of prep items that are included in every project:

  • Pressure washing
  • All necessary caulking
  • Priming new or bare wood
  • Scraping, sanding, or wire brushing loose paint off of surfaces we are going to repaint
  • Putting / Bondo / stucco patch of damaged areas that can be patched
  • Re-nailing loose nails
  • Stucco repair / we will cracks and repair damaged stucco
  • Trench dirt at foundation and paint below trench line / backfill after completion
  • Remove and replace light fixtures
  • Mask all non-painted surfaces and surrounding areas to protect from paint spills and over-spray

How do I prepare for your arrival?

  • Remove all items and PATIO furniture from outside the house.
  • Make sure your windows are closed for pressure washing.
  • Ensure all objects near the house are stored in a safe dry place.
  • Trim any bushes that are resting against the areas to be painted.
  • Make sure pets are in a safe place.
  • If you are having doors painted (front or side-access), we must be able to open the door.

Do I get to choose the type of paint used?

As part of our proprietary process, we use only high-end, durable paints from Sherwin Williams and Benjamin Moore. Your proposal will list out exactly what products we will be using on your project. If you have a particular product or manufacturer in mind, please let us know so that we can discuss pricing and availability.

Is there a project manager on-site during the job?

There is a Foreman - Crew Leader on every project. We will introduce you to each other at the beginning of your project. Our Project Managers will visit your home to make sure everything is running smoothly.

What type of payments do you accept?

We accept checks, cash, Mastercard, and Visa. If you are paying by credit card, a 4% transaction fee will be added to the total price.

Can I stay in my home during the project?

You are welcome to stay in your home during the project, but we recommend that you have a backup plan to stay with a friend, relative, or at an Airbnb. If we are painting the entire house, your kitchen, bathrooms and bedrooms will not be available to use. All of these areas will be masked off and covered for the duration of the project. If you are planning on staying in your home, please let us know so that we save a bedroom and bathroom for you to use while we’re painting other areas of the house. We recommend that you have an overnight bag packed if you change your mind about staying in your home.

How do I choose colors?

Choosing colors can be a daunting task for most homeowners. Fortunately, many tools and resources are available to help with this process. You may want to consider an interior designer to assist you with selecting colors for your home. Be sure to check their credentials. Interior designers should be ASID Certified at the very minimum. Websites such as Houzz and Pinterest have some great color ideas that may inspire you. All paint stores have color racks and stick and peel samples that you can bring home to try out before choosing your final colors.

Can I paint samples on my walls?

Please avoid painting samples on your walls. Your samples will shadow through due to a film build up. The best way to test colors is to purchase the stick and peel paint samples that most paint manufacturers offer. You can also purchase Small Wall stick and peel sheets that allow you to apply a paint color.

Will TRICO Painting help me with my color choice?

No, we are a painting contractor, and we have no formal training in color theory or design. We are happy to help suggest resources such as providing a list of the most popular whites or the current color trends listed by our suppliers.

Do I get to choose the type of paint used?

As part of our proprietary process, we use only high-end, durable paints from Sherwin Williams and Benjamin Moore. Your proposal will list out exactly what products we will be using on your project.

There is a Foreman - Crew Leader on every project. We will introduce you to each other at the beginning of your project. Our Project Managers will visit your home to make sure everything is running smoothly.

How strong are the odors, and how long do they last?

We use Sherwin Williams Paints, which are Low VOC and Low Odor. Due to this, many hospitals use these paints to maintain their facilities. Any odors associated with your project will have dissipated by the time we do the final inspection.

What type of payments do you accept?

We accept checks, cash, Mastercard, and Visa. If you are paying by credit card, a 4% transaction fee will be added to the total price.
