Average Star Rating

Absolutely phenomenal company to work with. Did a fantastic job and was very reasonably priced. Would highly recommend them to others!

I would definitely hire Southern Painting again. Professional, trustworthy and conscientious.

We needed to have some exterior and interior painting done and were also on a tight schedule. Southern painting did a great job and worked with our schedule. The house looks amazing! The entire process was very easy and everyone was friendly and professional.
