Painting & Drywall Reviews

Matt and crew, Max and Mike, did fantastic painting and preparation of both our house which is steel siding, and our garage of old wood boards. Their knowledge of different surfaces is absolute top notch! They definitely know what products to use when and applications needed for best results. Their attention to details is extremely meticulous! Very detail oriented! Results cannot be any better!!! House and garage look almost brand new!! Very nice people!!! Key communications often explained process and details, very easy to work with, communicated daily as to next time of arriving, consistently on time, daily updates on work plan as what would be done, thorough cleanup daily. We definitely recommend them highly!!! We plan to hire them again for additional projects and have been referring Ballantine Painting to others without any hesitation. We thank you much, Matt, Mike, Max, for your excellent work! From Timm Family, St. Paul, Como area

Matt and his crew did a truly amazing job at my condo, repaired some old dry wall, removed popcorn throughout and installed a new ceiling in the kitchen. Painted the whole place. They were attentive to detail, organized, flexible, and nice to work with. They do quality work, clean, efficient, and professional. We were very pleased. Would highly recommend.

Leo P via BBB

Matt and Max were awesome! We had a pipe burst that led to a lot of drywall needs and all new paint. They were fast and thorough! We also live in Grand Rapids so they had a trek up here. They never complained and worked with our schedule. They were amazing!

I found Ballantine Painting and Drywall by searching BBB. They had an excellent rating. I had started scrapping the popcorn ceiling bathroom. Realizing the overwhelming task, I called Matt. He came to look at the project. Since he was there, I added a few other scrapping and painting projects. Fabulous job was done. I couldn't be happier. The ceilings are gorgeous the paint job is great. Nice clean lines.....I had him back a few months later to scrape, re-texture and paint my entry. The guys stayed late to finish the job in a day. Can't say enough about the professional, courteous, quality work that is done by Ballantine Drywall and Painting. I will definitely have them back in the future!

Matt and team have done several painting jobs for us at our business and home. They are professional and did a great job painting and repairing windows, ceilings and walls. Very nice people also. Would highly recommend them and will use them again.

We hired Ballantine Painting to paint the exterior of our home. They did such an amazing job on the prep, painting (including fine details) and clean up. Our neighbors are constantly complimenting the workmanship, not to mention, those passing by who call out how amazing it looks. We highly recommend Ballantine Painting and will most definitely use them again for our projects. Mark and Kris Tinucci White Bear Lake, MN

We are so pleased with their work. **** came out and gave us an estimate to finish our basement. He explained things thoroughly and I actually understood the entire process and what challenges we might have to expect. I really appreciated the communication as we were informed of the schedule, upcoming tasks, etc. during the construction. We felt the price was affordable and appropriate, because we knew we were hiring "experience" things would be done correct the first time. **** and his crew arrived on time each day, they worked diligently throughout the day and surprisingly the atmosphere was always cheerful. Great team work. At the end of the day EVERYTHING was cleaned up and organized (they even vacuumed the area to help with the drywall dust!) It was a pleasure to have in our home. We'll definitely hire you for our upcoming projects and share your contact with our friends! Thank you so much!

Ballantine Painting & Drywall did an outstanding job on our lower level of our home. From beautiful new knockdown ceiling to new drywall and painting. I would highly recommend Ballantine Painting & Drywall. Matt and his team were very professional and clean. We will definitely be using them in the future for our exterior project.

Gina M via BBB

Hi Matt, Now that we are moved & settling in, we're getting a chance to really appreciate the transformation you made to our home! The work you did on the ceilings is just amazing!  You would never even know that beams were in the LR & MBR.  All the drywall & repair work in the kitchen & downstairs is flawless, and the painting work--walls, trim, doors & stair rails just perfect. We can't thank you and your awesome crew enough for making this "fixer-upper house into a real home. Many, Many Thanks, Marin & Gary

Marin S via BBB

Matt and Mike did a phenomenal job staining windows and doors, painting walls, re-texturing ceilings, and painting cabinets at our client's home and we could not be more happy with the service they provided!

Michelle S via BBB

Ballantine Painting and Drywall really went the extra mile for us. After starting the job they found structural issues with the framing and they were able to fit in extra time to fix the wall and finished off out entire basement including knock-down ceiling texture. They were able to repair some additional existing walls and made the entire basement look brand new. Employees took the time to explain the work that needed to be done and were a pleasure to work with. We give Matt and his team 5 stars and would certainly recommend them to anyone. Thanks, -Eric & Paula North Oaks, MN

Matt and his crew do it right, excellent workmanship, great communication habits, job started and finished when it was supposed to be started and finished. You will find contractors who will do your job cheaper and in a shorter time, but you will get cheap, and you will be calling Matt to come in and fix it. If I had a larger vocabulary I would find the proper words to praise him and his crew, especially the meticulous attention to detail Mike brings to the job.

Greg H. vai BBB

Excellent work - I am very happy with the painting done in my LR/kitchen/entry. Fair and straightforward quotes and consults, knows his business and the condo rules and regs in NE Mpls

Marian D. via BBB

Matt did a excellent job on my two bedrooms, professionally done, wallpaper came right off. I am very pleased and have other projects for him in the near future

Michael B. via BBB

Matt and his crew show up on time, get the work done, do it right and are very professional. I've used Matt on several projects and the results are the same....great!

Pat F. via BBB

Matt and his crew painted the interior of our home. This includes ceilings, walls, closets. They also painted an exterior door.They were such a pleasure to work with, reliable, ethical, trustworthy from start to finish! Their work is of the highest quality. They took great care to treat our home with great respect. The project took about 3 weeks, and they stayed "in touch" with us during the entire process. When we need further painting, we will gladly have them paint for us. Thanks, Matt!

Matt and his crew deserve 6 stars for sure, even more! They were professional in all regards, and very thoughtful in painting our home, from top to bottom. We especially appreciated how they kept in close communication with us through all phases of the project. We were away from the area during the majority of the project, and we always felt that our home was safe, locked up when appropriate, "in good hands at all times!" We highly recommend Ballantine Painting for any and all painting projects! They really do see to each and every detail! Thanks! J and E

Jay & Elizabeth K. via BBB

Matt and his crew did a great job! They were very nice to work with, all very friendly and polite. They showed up early everyday and kept me informed through the whole process. They were efficient, used good materials and did quality work on the work requested. Matt provided helpful feedback on issues that may arise with my old house. He did a walk through with me once the work was finished to be sure I didn't have any questions or concerns. I would recommend Matt and his crew for their friendly, knowledgeable, efficient and exceptional work!

Jill Svia BBB

Matt and his team do phenomenal work. They made our ceiling look perfect again after some water damage and removing some decorative beams. Also they leave absolutely no mess behind. A+ service!

Patrick A. via BBB

A previous subcontractor's poor workmanship left us in a huge mess. I was very fortunate to find Ballantine Painting and Drywall on the BBB website. His positive reviews convinced me to call. Matt came out and agreed to take this project on despite having to start from square one. He and his crew showed up promptly at 7 am every day, worked hard, had great customer service, explained things, and cleaned up each day before leaving. Matt and his team went over and above when they discovered our window trim was not lying flat and the wall was bulged out. They removed the drywall to find several problems including the wrong insulation that could've caused a moisture issue and repaired everything to code. They did a great job patching the wall so that the carpenter could add new trim that actually sits flat on the wall. Mike, the painter was very meticulous and did a perfect job patching and painting the walls. Dom helped out several days and he was an equally hard worker. They all did a thorough and professional job beyond our expectations. We will be forever grateful and amazed at how they turned something so stressful and hopeless into something we can be proud of. Matt and his crew are the best in the business!

Matt's team ( Mike ) painted the outside of our house and repaired and painted an inside wall. We would choose Ballantine Painting for any future projects. Their attention to detail and workmenship is outstanding. We strongly recommend them. Dick and Doris

Dick T via BBB

Matt and his team repaired my living room ceiling and painted several rooms of my house. They did an excellent job of advising me on options and communicating status. The results are perfect. I would definitely work with them again.

Mary F via BBB

Ballantine painted the cabinets and trim of our home refreshing the grainy honey oak to a fresh white. Also painted interior calls, did some drywall repair.

Cabinets and trim turned out beautifully, we have received so many compliments on the transformation! Crew was prompt and professional throughout the process.

Review: Interior Painting Service via Angies List

Interior painting; walls, trim and ceilings. Repair of ceiling cracks and patching on walls.
First they met with us to determine our goals and needs. They clarified the process, provided useful suggestions, answered questions, explained the process and estimated the cost. During the work they were always punctual, checked to make sure we were pleased with the progress and followed through on every commitment. The quality of their work was excellent and exceeded our expectations. They checked to be sure that everything was done to our satisfaction and the cost was nearly identical to their estimate. Ballantine Painting and Drywall provides excellent customer service and quality results at a very competitive price.

Review: Drywall Service via Angies List

I had these gentlemen out to fix cracks and holes in the ceiling in my kitchen, and to paint my living room. I had a quick turnaround for the free quote on the project. They were able to fit me in quickly and did a stellar job! My ceiling looks perfect and everyone is loving the paint job in the living room. Quote and end price were right on target and they were great at communicating the plan. Wouldn't hesitate to hire them again! Thanks guys!

Made my painting experience feel like I was working with family. Great job! Pricing was reasonable, I might have been able to find it cheaper, but I know in the long run I got the best deal. I can be a perfectionist and with Ballantine Painting I was very pleased with the results.

“Matt and his team not only took on the arduous task of painting our new home, but did so with class and efficiency. He went over and above the call of duty to ensure the details were attended to. We are thankful for his expertise and talent to ensure the job was done right.”
