The overall experience with CertaPro was great.

The overall experience with CertaPro was great: from the initial estimation process with Ralph, ongoing communication with his office manager Basia and the actual painting team led by Julio. This was an exterior painting of my house and the weather did not cooperate initially, but the team kept us informed as to what their intentions were. Both sides were flexible. Finally, Mother Nature came through and the project was completed before the end of May – our initial deadline. The painting team was polite, punctual, neat and did a really good job. The house looks clean and refreshed. We are very pleased with the results and would definitely recommend them.

Ralph and his men are great to work with.

The painters were professional, courteous, punctual, and highly skilled. They did a wonderful job and wasted no time in completing the project. They finished ahead of the schedule. Ralph is absolutely a delight to work with: patient, tolerant, knowledgeable, professional at all times, available and is flexible. Ralph and his men are great to work with.

Ralph and his crew at CertaPro are straight professionals.

2 years ago my wife and I fell in love with a house that had original wood shiplap siding, we purchased the house knowng someday it would have to be painted and preserved. This spring we decided to look into a painter that would be able to keep the rustic look, and a fresh coat of paint... easier said than done when the main focus of the house is that classicness of original wood. We called CertoPro on a blind call just to get an idea of what we’d be in for, and met with Ralph our local CertaPro painter/owner. We hadn’t planned on jumping right in with the first estimate, but Ralph really seemed to understand what we wanted, and exactly how to achieve that classic look. No price was discussed until, he gave us all the information, colors and options, never once being pushy... he came across as genuine and sincerely interested in our desire to bring this old house back to life. After we sat down, we were eager to hear what, this all would cost us, and to our surprise Ralph was very close to our budget, even including resealing/caulking gaps, seams and areas needing attention. We were ecstatic that our very specific needs could be met at such a fair price. Needless to say we went ahead and hired Ralph to do the job and he did not fail in his task... the painters were clean, neat and professional, which also translated to the finished product. Attention to detail was every bit as perfect as we could hope for and Ralph ensured us that he would follow up in a few days to see how we liked the the finished job after drying. As promised Ralph called in a few days to check in and make sure we were pleased with the work... this review may seem detailed and lengthy, but I felt it necessary to credit where credit is due, especially in today’s world of fly by night contractors... Ralph and his crew at CertaPro are straight professionals and I would/will highly recommend them to anyone looking to repaint.

Very happy with CertaPro.

Very happy with CertaPro. Showed up when promised and finished when promised. Needed wallpaper removed and painting done in 3 rooms and all work was done to our complete satisfaction. Always cleaned up before leaving, too.

It was an extreme pleasure to work with a company that puts the customer first.

Securing Certapro Painters of Merrick was one of the best buying decisions I've made in a very long time. Accustomed to doing most household maintenance on my own, I was in new territory relying on an outsider to provide me the level of quality I demand. From my first contact with my sales representative, Damien, I got a sense that I was working with a reputable company. Further along, my confidence built when I worked with the owner, Ralph, and his administrative assistant, Basia. They far exceeded my expectations for service, reliability and quality of work. Honestly speaking, If I would have decided to paint the exterior cedar shakes of my home on my own, the end result would have not been nearly as good. It was a great investment! It was an extreme pleasure to work with a company that puts the customer first. I highly recommend them.

CertaPro in Merrick/Bellmore did a fantastic job.

CertaPro in Merrick/Bellmore did a fantastic job painting my house. In addition they power washed, patched my stucco and replaced rotted wood around my garage door frame. Working with Ralph and Julio and his crew was a pleasure. I received many compliments on my house.

The work that the team did was absolutely fantastic.

I cannot express how happy we are with the work that Ralph Schwartz and CertaPro did at my home. The work that the team did was absolutely fantastic. They arrived every day by 8AM as scheduled. Their work was astounding. The staff that did the work were professional, made sure the work was clean and neat ( as much as could be under the circumstances) and done on time. We received a call every night to ask how the work was proceeding. I will recommend CertaPro Painters each and every time anyone needs to have work done in their home. You will not be disappointed with the quality of Ralph and his teams work!

- Arthur Smolin

I am happy with the job.

I hired Ralph to paint a few rooms in the interior of my home in Merrick and to refinish my garage floor. Ralph and his crew were professional from start to finish. Communication was great and my home was left clean and neat after each work day. The price I paid was reasonable for the quality of work performed and I am happy with the job. For the record, @peter kerns no one paid me to write this review, I am happy to write it to support a hard working company who did the job they were supposed to do.

- Bryce Rosner


Recommend CertaPro painters to others.

CertaPro painters painted my living room, two closets and half the hallway in my house. And did a great job. CertaPro painters also fixed a big hole in my living room wall. CertaPro painters clean up during and after the paint job is the best. Very friendly and CertaPro painters are great on detail planning of getting the job done right. I will use CertaPro painters again and recommend CertaPro painters to others.

- Dennis Burke


His crew took great care of painting my home.

Ralph and his crew took great care of painting my home. From power washing the peeling paint and sanding the edges, to coming back afterwards to do touch ups. My wife and I are very happy and our neighbors even stopped by to compliment the job. Thanks Ralph.

Ralph was the best.

Ralph was the best. To take his time to explain every type of way that he is going to fix the problem.. our two front doors were fading from the sun . So far it's been great.. And the gentleman that actually did the painting where great also on time and clean..

- Ronnie Potash


Would highly recommend.

My wife and I recently moved to Merrick and we hired Certa Pro to complete cabinet painting Ralph was very professional he worked within our budget and did an amazing job repainting and interior painting to be done. We were very pleased. He was always available and answered all our questions and concerns. Would highly recommend.

- Artur Davidov


Would recommend to anyone.

They went above and beyond to make sure my job was done and done correct. They even stayed late to make sure the job was done well. Would recommend to anyone.

- Mike Bender


Ralph and the guys were great.

Ralph and the guys were great. Always showed up on time, cleaned up well, there were a couple of spots that could have been a little better in clean up but not enough to remove a star. Especially when I ever had an issue Ralph was quick to get back to me. If it wasn't that day it was the next day. The guys were polite and I felt comfortable with them in my home. They sprayed our Florida room/sun room to repaint the whole thing and it was done SO fast. The only thing I'd say is have your paint colors in mind as Ralph can help narrow your choices down but didn't necessarily like giving one based off you saying "I want a blue". And I don't blame him. He did end up suggesting a white to us and it was one I was familiar with and I agreed, and it was perfect. The finished product looks great and we are very happy. Got a buyer before even listing. Just wish we could have done this sooner to enjoy it ourselves longer. I was going to send them to my parents but they are in Queens and out of the service area. So I do recommend them!

- Laura K


Fair price and great job.

They were on time and extremely professional.

This is my second timing using Certa Pro but my 1st time with Ralph and his team. They were on time and extremely professional. Also cleaned up daily after they were done working for the day. The interior painting of my den was awesome. Completely transformed the room into a new area of my home. I'd definitely recommend Ralph and would use him and his team again on future projects.

- Kim Battle

- robert bialt


Overall, I would recommend!!

The finished product looks great and the painters were very professional and nice. They tackled a lot in a short amount of time. The only negative is that I wish they covered the floors and fixtures a bit better. The paint comes off easily with a bit of water and abrasion, but scratching little dots of paint off of my faucets and floors is more time consuming than I would have liked. Overall, I would recommend!!

- Juliana Brady


Job done well.

Ralph and his team were extremely professional and got the job done well. One thing I really appreciated was the level of care and attention to detail with respect to both my home (taping and lining up everything) as well as my neighbors whose houses are very close to mine. Great people. Thanks.

- Bryan Hayes

Would definitely recommend Certa Pro Painters from Merrick

Certa Pro from Merrick were great. Ralph the owner was there whenever I had questions and the guys doing the painting were good workers and respectful of the job and my property. The job ended up being a little more entailed than originally thought but Ralph explained exactly what needed to be done. The cost was a fair price for the work that was done based on all the attention to detail.. Would definitely recommend Certa Pro Painters from Merrick

- Sean Canning


l appreciate your patients with some minor demands.

Certapro was exceptional when it comes to punctuality. I painted the entire interior of my house, choosing the paint color was effortlessly with Certapro color consultant (Cindy). The one mishap I encounter was taken care of immediately, thank you Ralph. Excellent customer, and l appreciate your patients with some minor demands. Thank guys.

I highly recommend Ralph and his team.

Ralph came and gave me a detailed proposal with pics of each area and addressed all of my concerns. His team's foreman was informative and kept up to date on all details of the day and plan for tomorrow. The team was prompt, professional, friendly and did great work. I had rotted fascia and missing molding that THEY repaired taking a huge headache off my plate. I highly recommend Ralph and his team and would use them again in a heartbeat if given the chance!!!
