Angie’s List Reviewer - August 07, 2014

Dealing with Alex. Mike and Joel was a fantastic experience! These gentlemen were constantly professional, courteous and prompt. They not only painted but repaired numerous rough spots. We have received many compliments on the newly painted house. I would recommend them to anyone. 

 Angie’s List Reviewer - April 23, 2014

If you need your house painted, do whatever you can to get Alex and his crew on the project! We had to wait many weeks to get on his schedule, but it was well worth it. They start with a thorough power-wash of the house. That's followed by a thorough scraping of loose paint. Filler is applied to smooth out the rough spots, then the real fun begins! The color starts to appear!  Alex recommends a very high quality paint, and we we're thrilled with our choice of Sherwin-Williams. Alex helped us with color choices, and made recommendations as we went along. Everything we asked for, he cheerfully did. He is an expert at painting houses and we recommend you listen to his suggestions. By the time his crew was done, we not only had a visually stunning paint job, we had a well-protected house that will last for years to come.  I can't say enough nice things about Tropical Painting & Decorating. The price was fair, and the work was exceptional. They showed up on time and the crew was friendly and trust-worthy. They are easy-going and a pleasure to work with. They work hard and get the job done promptly. Thank you Alex

Angie’s List Reviewer - Aug 31, 2013 Once again Tropical Painting & Decorating has provided professional services at a reasonable price.  Their workmanship surpasses the highest expectations with a beautiful result.  My past experience with the owner, on a previous home painting project, made me a loyal customer.  When you find the best there is, no reason to go anywhere else.

Angie’s List Reviewer - Apr 25, 2013 Alex is professional and did a great job.  He stands behind his work.  We will use him again.  Highly recommended!

Snplan - Apr 4, 2013 I  highly recommend Tropical Painting. They did the careful prep work that is necessary to a job well done, with special care to patching stucco and sealing moisture problem spots. They were courteous, clean and professional. Our home looks great and will stay that way for a long time.

Angie’s List Reviewer - Jul 06, 2012 Alex & his crew were great to work with and did a fantastic job!  We have received so many compliments from neighbors who also want to use them in the future.

Angie’s List Reviewer - Jun 04, 2012 We have used Alex and his company for well over 10 years on many different projects inside and out. The most recent was for exterior painting, after some remodeling, and painting the garage. In the past Tropical has painted most of the interior and the entire exterior of our home. Alex is very quick to respond to our requests for estimates and his prices have always been more than competitive.

Our home was built in 1925, is 4000 square feet, and is on the water. These attributes require special attention at times. Alex and Tropical have been able to handle carpentry needs that have saved us a lot of time, expense, and headaches. That has put this company at the top of our list for well over ten years!

Angie’s List Reviewer - May 11, 2012 Alex is the owner of Tropical Painting and he personally makes sure it is done beautifully and fully to your satisfaction.  I can't say enough about his professionalism, proficiency and practicality. We had a relatively large project including an extensive wall with plants, etc. Alex and his staff were terrific, very courteous, clean and careful at all times.  I enthusiastically endorse Tropical Painting.

The job involved the exterior painting of a large house with an extensive wall surrounded by plants. Alex arrived promptly; he carefully reviewed the grounds, made suggestions regarding approaches and provided a very detailed estimate within 48 hours.  It took us some time to decide on the colors and Alex patiently provided us with samples to mull over while he scheduled us in.  Alex personally participated in painting and almost constantly supervised the work.  He would leave only for short periods when he had office work or other administrative tasks to get done.  The job took about two weeks and I never felt anything was ever rushed to finish.  When finished we reviewed every detail. You can't do better.

Brian ‎ - Feb 1, 2011 About a year ago, Alex/Tropical Painting repainted the exterior our 2-story Dutch Colonial on 15th Ave NE, including a 2-story detached garage/apartment. This was a huge job by any measure; a lot of the time spent was in the preparation. Not only do they perform quality work, but Alex is very helpful in knowing what is appropriate for a home like this. We picked the colors of course but deferred to him a lot on *where* to put those colors. There is a lot of trim and detail work on these older homes and his suggestions were not only valued but right on the money because the house looks like a million bucks now. I'd glad I was lazy and waited a year to write this review because I think if the paint was going to peel or chip it would have started pretty quickly. I can say that we've had no significant problems with paint adhesion on the house—surprisingly even areas where *old* 80-year old paint was peeling is now holding. The only minor thing that has just started is that some of the new paint is flaking off from our outdoor metal stairs in a couple spots. If it gets any worse I will have Alex come by to look at it- I only mention this just to emphasize the importance of hiring a local, reputable professional—you always have someone to call who will stand by their work. A big painting job could be an absolute disaster if you hire the wrong people. You might save a (very) small amount of money up front, but guess what it will cost when it starts peeling and you have to hire a crew to scrape off all that paint? Do yourself a favor and call Tropical. LEBearns ‎ - Jun 22, 2008 Professional & Excellent Result If you are looking for someone with an eye for detail, then this is the company to work with. The prep work was great and led to a wonderful result. Interior painting was everything I expected & more. Will tell all my friends...

Angie’s List Reviewer - Jun 01, 2011 The whole process went very smoothly & just as expected.  Alex & crew were very friendly and did a fabulous job.  We are very happy with the results.

Faye B Johnson - Feb 03, 2010 Alex and his team were very professional and courteous.  My roof was full of mildew and when they finished, it looks almost new.  My Exterior Painting job is beautiful.  Thank you!! 

goldenc12930 - Apr 23, 2010 Tropical Painting just completed painting the entire exterior of my home. Alex the owner was professional and courteous from the first meeting. They were on time, neat, and careful of shrubs and personal items. They were informative so you knew what phase they were on at all times of the job. I couldn't find anything wrong with job when they completed. I really appreciate working with someone that is so respectful. His crew was the same. They really know what they are doing. Very Very Professional. I would highly recommend them and I will hire them again. Alex, Mike and Paul, Thank you for great job!

LizWms727 - Aug 07, 2010 I recently purchase an older home (80 plus) in NE St Petersburg. Needless to say the wood work was in pretty rough shape and several of the walls had very large cracks. I needed a company that could not only paint but also do the repair work as well. I decided on Tropical Painting because I liked the fact that the owner had over 35 years of experience and would be working on the job. They had also done work for several of my neighbors and were highly recommended! I made the right choice because the woodwork looks brand new and I can’t even tell where the cracks in the walls were. I am ecstatic and can’t wait for them to come back next year and make the upstairs as beautiful as the downstairs!

k.jen50 ‎ - Jun 14, 2008 Very Happy! Telling all my friends I cannot thank Tropical painting enough. Our interior walls and wood work were a mess. The preparation they did was amazing. The window sills look new again. My husband and I feel like we are living in a brand new home!  

dee.pearce ‎ - May 28, 2008 Great Job, I would highly recommend! I recently had Tropical Painting paint the exterior of my home. I found colors that I liked on another house and they custom matched the paint for me. They spent several days scraping and caulking. They explained that they were preparing the house before they applied the paint. My house is over 50 years old and now it looks brand new. I cannot believe how good the new colors look. I am very happy with the paint job done on my home.
