What You'll Get
Jump to: Reviews
This Groupon side deal gets you $250 worth of professional wall painting for $75 from The Paint Doc. Painting an average room costs about $160 (prices vary based on size, moulding, etc.), and a 10'-by-10' room with a single coat (just the walls) takes about 90 minutes.
The Paint Doc—Jeff McKinney and his crew of professional paint slingers—sands off ancient paint nuggets, spackles old firecracker holes, and tapes the baseboards, then team coats the walls with a smooth, unbroken shade of whatever color you want. Everybody has walls that need painting, and a professional job keeps the trim clean and the paint even. Whether you want to sell your home, tweak the color scheme, or cover up old peanut butter smears, a fresh coat of paint is vital.
When the Pope asked The Paint Doc for proof of his talent, the artist replied by painting a perfect circle that loosely resembled a blueberry-walnut pancake, freehand. Jeff McKinney has been painting for 13 years, and The Paint Doc has been healing the walls of one or two houses a week this year. The Paint Doc doesn't do decorative or faux painting—this Groupon is for straight-up wall coloring. Paint isn't included in the cost of this Groupon since prices vary so much. You choose the color and quality you want (The Paint Doc usually uses Sherwin-Williams, but you can pick whatever brand you prefer). You get reimbursed The Paint Doc after they get it mixed for you at a discount.
Three Yelpers give The Paint Doc a perfect five-star rating:
- I came home from traveling for work last night and the place looks great... I have a funny feeling he will be asked back to paint some additional areas. – Gary B.
- EXCELLENT work. We just had Jeff paint 3 large rooms and a small foyer in our new place and it turned out beautifully. We got quotes from a couple other companies and Jeff's was by far the best (and I mean nearly half the price). – Alexa J.
- He was very thorough and meticulous, which is important to me since I'm a very detailed oriented person, and he kept the painting areas clean. Bottom line, Jeff does great work and I would highly recommend his services. – Susan D.
