DiVinci Safety Precautions

As cold and flu season begins, the health and safety of our clients remain our number one priority. DiVinci has always been accommodating to the needs and requests of clients who have pre-existing conditions or are immune-compromised, and we have carried that care and respect through during this pandemic. DiVinci has all the equipment and procedures in place to complete indoor work without compromising health and safety.

Recently, one of our Project Managers was able to put a client’s mind at ease who was concerned about work being done in his home as his wife was immune-compromised. Beyond the masks that we already require each worker to wear, he was able to assure the client that DiVinci was able to create artificial walls and doorways with plastic, use HEPA machines, ozone machines and negative air machines to keep the workspace and home safe.

If you need work done indoors this winter, DiVinci is ready to help, and we promise to create a reliably safe work area and get the job done with exceptional service and superior craftsmanship.

    I just wanted to drop you a quick note to say how pleased I am with the interior painting. Carlos, Maria, and Emiliano did simply OUTSTANDING work! And they were a pleasure to have around — such nice people. Also, they worked so hard! I was exhausted just watching them! Anyway, I just love having what had been eyesores around my house now repaired and freshly painted. Please say thank you to them for me, and I can’t wait for the exterior work to begin!

    Phil, I just wanted to thank you and your entire team including Stanley, Brizio, and Louis for the recent work in our home. As you know, we experienced an unusual amount of damage to our stairway, walls, and great room floor when a new refrigerator was installed in our second floor kitchen. You guys showed up immediately, did the required patching, and then did the final repair when the installation was finally complete. I'm pleased to say that the project is now done and everything looks great! We could not have done this so quickly or so professionally without you and your team. Thanks again for all your help on this project, and multiple past projects over the years, including our house and my mother's home. Arnie and Sharyn

    I want to thank DiVinci Painters for a great job at Northbrook Court Professional Plaza. The work was completed on time and better than expected. The premises were cleaned daily, and in no way were any of the businesses here inconvenienced.

    My daughter's bedroom has a vaulted ceiling, with dormers and she wanted different colors in the dormers, stripes on the walls, and lots of detail. DiVinci allowed us to sample different patterns and designs so that she knew beforehand that she would be happy with the final look of her room. Thanks so much DiVinci, we love it!

    A huge thank you to Wes and all the team for the great work on the deck and the immediate response to the busted hot water heater! Your high standards for professional work and responsive service are outstanding!
  • Joan B.
    Thank you for the wonderful job your crew, headed by Valentine, did on our place. They were hard workers and did a professional job arriving on time and not leaving until everything was neatly cleaned up and put out of our way. I will recommend you to others.

    I just wanted to reach out to you to let you know what a great job Mario and his team did on Judi I. R.'s ceiling. Please let him know as always he and the team were very professional, and work quickly to get the job, and most importantly, they did a beautiful job!

    I'm writing to let you know how pleased my wife and I are with the work that your team did for us. Phil Massey coordinated the project and worked with us to identify the right colors for the unit. He was thoroughly professional and patient as we struggled to identify the proper colors for the rooms and our furniture. With his help we eventually made two perfect choices of colors and have subsequently received many compliments from friends and neighbors regarding the choice. David and Lucio did the actual painting and deserve special commendation for their work. The work was perfection. We've looked all over the apartment to find some spot of paint on the floor or some corner that was missed. Even my eagle-eyed wife could not find a flaw. They subsequently came back to the apartment to do touch up work and again demonstrated great skill and professionalism. A week ago your wallpaper men came to the unit. Although I do not have their names, they too deserve high praise. Their task was to paper a bathroom and they did it quietly, efficiently, and carefully. The finished product of their work is beautiful to see. All of these men represented your company with work of the highest quality. Their work made us eager to recommend DiVinci Painters to our friends and neighbors who need painting. We cannot thank you enough for the beautiful job your men did here. Please give them our thanks and compliment them for their skill and professionalism.

    The house looks great again. Colors are perfect! Thanks to Lopez-including two other painters. I never worked with guys who were neat, friendly, and precise about their work. They were fun to work with! To think I have worked with you since 1991 and I HIGHLY recommend your professional work to everyone!!

    Thank you very much for doing a great job painting our house. Thanks to you, it looked beautiful for the open house. It hasn't sold yet, but I am sure it will. Thank you again! It was a pleasure working with you

  • Robert P.
    Further to our telephone conversation, please accept this letter as my "thank you" for another job well done. Your work at all three of our homes turned out as expected and that high standard that you hold yourself and your employees to. Again, I wish to thank Wes for his attention to all of the work done and for his follow up as required. Your crew leader Lucio has again conducted himself in a most professional manner and has made that extra effort to ensure each of the three jobs were accomplished to our satisfaction in a timely manner. Please thank Lucio again for me. He is an asset to your company.

    Phil, I just wanted to take a moment to thank you. My apartment looks spectacular and everything was handled professionally and courteously by the crew. I'm very happy with the results and would recommend DiVinci anytime. Thanks very much!
  • Jill G.
    They are great. They are clean, neat and professional. Add in that they are always 25-40% cheaper than any other bids I get. We've used them for years and are always there to do the smallest of jobs and touch ups. They worked around the schedules of all my conflicting subs and never complained. LOVE LOVE LOVE them.

    Well, no wonder this group has won awards. They are amazing. They painted my foyer, living room, kitchen, and powder room in 5 days, including ceilings! They were very neat and cleaned up after themselves every night. They were on time every day, very cordial, and friendly. The painters were very knowledgeable about their work! They answered my questions and addressed all concerns immediately. His fellow painters were great too. They are so good they will be doing my master bedroom and bath (stripping wallpaper...yuck!), my daughter's room, our basement and in the Spring the entire outside of our house. How about THAT for confidence in great painters! Thanks DiVinci for making my husband's upcoming retirement enjoyable!

    Your painters were the best guys we have ever had doing work here. They were so nice to deal with and talk to. They were very careful and very thorough. We are so happy with their work.

    Just wanted to shoot you a quick note regarding your fabulous crew who worked on the exterior and interior of our home recently. I will forever be grateful to you for helping me choose the exterior paint color which I just love every time I sit in my car admiring my house (my neighbors have begun rolling their eyes when they spot me out there beaming.) Perfect color and you were forever patient as I struggled also through the choosing of the interior colors. Your crew chief David was wonderful. Just incredibly nice and always accommodating and equally patient as he helped me through the various agonies over choosing colors. Always came exactly when he said he would and stayed till the job was done. Took many calls from me as I asked him to pick up color samples as he was heading over.  He also took it upon himself to point out areas where he felt a brush up or a touch up was needed. Just an excellent all around professional, kind, hard working guy.  His son, David Jr., and some of the other painters were all equally super hard working. We would recommend DiVinci Painters (and most especially “our” guys) to anyone we know of who is looking for excellent painters not to mention a very pleasant group of guys to have around!

    "Thank you Wes, Jim, and all the DiVinci craftsmen and craftswomen for all the work, creativity, and dedication you put into our kitchen/bath/entry renovation....well, whole first floor it turns out, and the upstairs bath and more!  It's beautiful, and it feels like home to us.  We are finally completely moved back in, all the details are complete and we are enjoying our new living space so very much."

    "Today, DiVinci Painters is putting the finishing touches on the complete exterior painting of our home. I wanted to provide you feedback on the absolutely fantastic job performed by your entire team. From the start of inquiry with Julie W. and Martin V., the response to work with out tight schedule was remarkable. Then the work began and we were simply blown away. Omar and his team - I can't say enough how impressed we were every day with their amount of expertise, his leadership and overall customer service and attention to detail! We have worked with many painters over the years and DiVinci and Omar's team clearly ranked amongst the best! Our 100 year old house has never looked better! Please pass along my thanks and gratitude to your team!"
