  • John Grady (Tuesday, September 06 22 11:30 am EDT)

    When I moved to Williamsburg over 10 years ago, I was lucky enough to make contact with Barry. Every year, I have had the outside of my place power washed along with the driveway and sidewalk. Everything looks great. Barry has also painted the entire interior including closets and garage. I couldn't be better. As an extra perk, he also likes dogs.

  • Ron & Carolyn (Sunday, July 17 22 12:18 pm EDT)

    Outstanding! Barry is the complete professional. His meticulous attention to detail and the extraordinary care of his work exceeded our expectations. Also, it was no small matter that his engaging personality made his work on our home a pleasure to behold.

  • Steve and Sue (Sunday, November 14 21 09:54 am EST)

    What a pleasure to have someone who is honest, reliable, professional in his craft. Barry responded timely to our request and gave us a detailed estimate for the painting of the exterior of our home. His work is the best and he uses only the best products. I highly recommend Barry for any painting jobs.

  • Regina M Walsh (Saturday, October 23 21 01:42 pm EDT)

    I can't say enough good things about Barry. He is professional; knows his craft;
    is meticulous; totally trustworthy. In September of this year (2021) Barry painted the exterior of my home. Absolutely great job! Barry did the interior of my home in 2018. I gave him the keys to my little fiefdom and took of for two weeks to Europe. On return I came home to a beautifully painted interior. Not only was the interior to die for but he left my home in a impeccable clean home. Barry shows the utmost respect for your inside and out. I highly recommend Barry. I won't use anyone else!

  • Chet (Sunday, October 03 21 09:20 am EDT)

    Bears custom painting is the best painter I have ever used.

  • Nick and Anne (Monday, September 20 21 03:47 pm EDT)

    Bear recently painted all the wood trim on our house. Unlike the builder, Bear took great pride in doing a top quality job, using only the best materials. He worked non-stop every day until the job was completed. We highly recommend him.

  • Ed & Carolyn Brown (Tuesday, April 06 21 11:46 am EDT)

    We have lived in Greensprings West for almost 17 years. Last summer we had Barry paint the outside trim on our house. The work was so amazing we decided to paint the inside. Nothing had ever been painted since the house was built. The results were spectacular, including the garage.

  • Steve Romanko (Friday, February 05 21 04:15 pm EST)

    Can't tell you how pleased we are with the extremely professional job you recently did for us. Have hired you before and would not consider hiring anybody else in the future. Thanks Barry!

  • Gerald Simmons (Tuesday, August 25 20 02:48 pm EDT)

    Barry came to us highly recommended, and he is even better than that! he just finished painting the exterior of our home, and he did a fantastic job. We intend to have him paint the interior as well in the upcoming months. Selecting him as your custom painter will be one of the best decisions you will ever make.

    Barry is extremely knowledgeable about his craft; utilizes the very best paint and materials; has the proper equipment; does impeccable work with a high attention to every detail; is reasonably priced and dedicated to completely satisfying his customers.

    My wife and I highly recommend Barry for all your interior and/or exterior painting and associated repair needs.

  • Robin Webster (Tuesday, October 15 19 10:46 am EDT)

    I needed to find a contractor to paint a 30-year old house that was overdue for painting and needed some exterior maintenance. It wasn't a small project so I had 4 contractors visit and give a quote. Bear's Custom Painting was the last company I called and am I ever glad that I found Barry. Talking to Barry while he did the quote, I could immediately sense how much he cared about his work and I knew that I would be able to trust him to do a top-notch job with top-quality materials. The quote came in a bit lower than some of the local high-end competition and my decision was easy. With the project having recently been completed, I am thrilled with how everything went. Barry took care with every detail of the project and did a fantastic job. He also brought dehydrated chicken for my dog every day!!!

  • Anne Hahn (Tuesday, July 30 19 12:09 pm EDT)

    Bear is the absolute BEST! He is the hardest and most dedicated worker who worked for us on short notice until he got the job done. What an amazing job he did! I truly believe his paint job is what sold our house two days after going on market! I can’t recommend him enough! Not only did he do a great job, he treated my pets like his own talking to them through the window and saying “good morning” to my chickens! What a great person. I consider him now a friend.❤️

  • Regina (Sunday, December 16 18 01:59 pm EST)

    I can't say enough good things about Barry. This past June he painted the interior of my home. The job he did was excellent! Barry worked with me prior to starting the job so that he and I were on board as to what was needed and how the colors would work. To say Barry is trustworthy is an understatement. I put the house keys in his hands and then took off for 2 weeks to Europe. I had no qualms that all was in safe keeping. I came home to a beautifully painted home. It was clean; no mess left. I was beyond pleased. I highly recommend Barry as he is professional, does an outstanding painting job and pays attention to detail.

  • Diane Anderson (Saturday, July 14 18 05:34 pm EDT)

    Barry has been doing my mom's painting for years, inside and out. His work is impeccable and we only wish he were in Roanoke also. Trustworthy and kind are strong attributes to have which is why Barry stands out. We highly recommend him for his painting skills, as no one can match them, his attention to details, ability to see and recommend what needs to be done, his prices are great and lastly a person you can trust to be in your home whether you're there or not.

  • Mary Garrett (Saturday, January 13 18 01:21 pm EST)

    Barry did an exceptional job in painting our interior (the entire house). He is meticulous in both preparation and painting, using high-quality materials and paint. He demonstrated his thorough knowledge and experience in evaluating and executing the job.He was easy to work with and was surprisingly neat in daily clean-up to minimize disruption to our lives. The outcome was superb. We highly recommend Barry for those seeking high-quality work at a reasonable price.

  • Tim Kinkead (Monday, October 24 16 07:14 pm EDT)

    Barry did an exceptional painting job for us . He provided ideas for best materials, carefully prepared the area and reliably and diligently completely the work . I recommend him without hesitation.

  • Rich Moser (Thursday, October 13 16 08:51 am EDT)

    We have used Bear's Custom Painting for many years now. Interior painting, exterior painting, pressure cleaning - Barry does it all and we have been extremely pleased with his hard work and attention
    to detail. As a result, we recommend him highly.

  • Nancy Raftery (Saturday, July 30 16 11:26 am EDT)

    Barry did a wonderful job painting almost our entire house. He is so dedicated and knowledgeable about the process and we highly recommend him. Since we were out of town, he sent us pictures of how
    the work was going and was always available to assist with additional work that needed to be done after our floors were finished. We were so lucky that our neighbor recommended him and we will do the
    same for anyone who asks us about the work in our home. Thanks, Barry! We appreciate your hard work.

  • Nancy Raftery (Thursday, July 07 16 04:27 pm EDT)

    Barry did a wonderful job on our home. We are so pleased with the work he did and the commitment he had to the whole process. His prep work was amazing and he sent us pictures of his progress. We
    truly appreciate the job he did and would recommend him highly to anyone who needs a painter. Thanks again, Barry

    "I've had my house painted 4 times in 26 years by different painters each time. Bears does not advertise, but depends on word-of-mouth, so here it is. It's a one-man company, and Barry is that
    person. When it comes to house painting, the man is an artist, bidding the best materials, meticulous in preparation and applicaion. Not cheap, not expensive, but the economical sweet spot in the
    middle, while outdoing the high priced alternative."

  • Donna (Saturday, August 29 15 09:55 am EDT)

    Two of the three rooms I've contracted for are done and I'm so pleased with the results, I can't wait for the third to be done. And then the rest of the house! Bear is courteous, professional and has
    the best work ethic I've seen in quite some time. I would recommend him HIGHLY!!!

  • Abby S. (Thursday, May 14 15 02:51 pm EDT)

    I had a rather small interior painting job and was very surprised and happy with the quick response, quote and enthusiasm that the company showed. He arrived on time for the quote and took
    measurements; was easy to speak with and responsive to my needs. He was comfortable with my dog being about as well. On the day of the project, he arrived on time and was very consensus about the
    flooring and items in the house. He did a wonderful job and was very accurate with his estimated completion time. His attitude speaks volumes as he is very professional and positive. I would highly
    recommend this company for large or small jobs.
