WHAT CUSTOMERS ARE SAYING:

5★★★★★ - "Exceptional Painting is who I always recommend to buyer and seller clients. There are so many different kinds of paints and stains, it can be overwhelming, but Leondras (owner) is very knowledgeable about all of them and will advise you properly. It's nice to work with someone who is passionate about their job. They clean up very well, are respectful of your personal property and landscaping. They are honest and dependable, and work within their promised time frame.
I hired them for my own 2 houses- for interior and exterior. Both times, they did an excellent job, and I couldn't have been more pleased.
Leondras oversees his projects and crew carefully to always ensure top quality work and proper time management. He will walk through the job upon completion to ensure your complete satisfaction. He will warranty his work. They are my go-to painting company, and I highly recommend them.

5★★★★★ - "Mr. Owens & his team were great! They were prompt, courteous & professional. They corrected & finished some interior painting I tried to do on my own. They also did a wonderful job on another room & I look forward to having them finish the rest of my house."

in Durham, NC


5★★★★★ - "I hired Exceptional Painting in October 2018. Leondras and his team were incredible. They tackled a laundry list of drywall repairs, ceiling repairs including popcorn ceiling and cracks throughout my home in Durham, as well as touch up painting and interior painting of entire rooms. They were very friendly and professional, kept me informed throughout the project, asked my input when needed, and provided service above and beyond what I was expecting. Their prep work, surface protection, and clean up were outstanding. I was very, very satisfied with Exceptional Painting, and I will definitely hire them again."

in Durham, NC


5★★★★★ - "Mr. Owens came over in the evening to give me an estimate as I needed a room painted quickly. He showed up the next morning with his sons to get the job done on time and did a great job. Flexible, courteous, professional and thorough in a short amount of time."

in Durham, NC


5★★★★★ - "I scraped popcorn from several of my ceilings thinking I could smooth the ceilings DIY style, and I damaged the drywall in the process. Leondras and his team came to the rescue and completed the drywall repair and interior painting of the ceilings within the timeline that I needed and the budget that I wanted. The end result looks great! Leondras is an excellent communicator and responds quickly via text or call. His team was friendly, respectful, and punctual. I will definitely use them in the future!"

in Durham, NC


5★★★★★ - "We hired Exceptional Painting to do our 2-story family room & entry + ceiling, as well as our kitchen and master bedroom. Leondras gave us a fair price and was very professional. Our painting crew included Willie, Edgar, Anna, Alejandro, etc and they were top notch. They were friendly, arrived on time each day, and worked very efficiently. They left everything so tidy each day and the painting they did looks amazing. They had great attention to detail. We are so pleased!"

5★★★★★ - "I had a good experience with Leondras and Exceptional Painting. They performed quality work when sealing and painting my garage. I would surely call them again."

in Durham, NC


5★★★★★ - "This was the third time we used Exceptional Painting for interior and exterior painting. Leondras and his professional crew are courteous, efficient, neat and truly do an exceptional job! Their attention to detail is what sets them apart."

in Durham, NC


5★★★★★ - "We first used Exceptional Painting to remove popcorn ceilings in our upstairs in 2015. I got three quotes and ultimately chose Exceptional Painting because their prices were fair and Leondras made a great first impression.
When it was time to work, the crew did an excellent job. They were on time, carefully prepped the area and were able to prioritize the master bedroom so we didn't have to be displaced.
We used them again in 2017 to remove the popcorn ceilings downstairs as well and to paint several bedrooms. It went off without a hitch- crew started in the AM and worked through the day. Leondras personally checked the site each day, making sure to ask if I had any concerns.
They do great work and I wouldn't hesitate to use them again. You can really tell Leondras takes pride in exceeding expectations.

5★★★★★ - "Exceptional Painting painted my entire house except one room and did an outstanding job. The job was timely, without a lot of mess and with professionalism. They work with me on choosing paint colors and making sure I was comfortable in my home while the work was being done. I would highly recommend them to anyone looking for an exceptional painting company."

in Durham, NC


5★★★★★ - "I was on a tight schedule, hoping to get my house painted between the time I closed on a Thursday and moved in the following Tuesday. Leondras and his crew accommodated me by coming in over the weekend and completing the job on Monday, in time for my move. They did a fantastic job painting the master bedroom, entry, dining room, and two story living room. They prepped thoroughly, taping edges, patching nail holes, and covering electrical outlets. The end result was perfectly painted walls. They worked efficiently and cleaned up everything when they were finished. They returned a couple weeks later to paint my kitchen cabinets, again with the same beautiful results. Leondras and his crew were courteous and easy to work with. I would definitely choose Exceptional Painting again."

5★★★★★ - "Mr. Owens and his team transformed my 15 year old maple kitchen cabinet into a beautiful off white color. In fact, when I saw the finished product, I can truly say that the cabinets looked brand new. Each member of his team was professional and respectful and they were able to complete their work a day early. I highly recommend Mr. Owens and his team."

"Recently we received information about a Durham based company that did powerwashing, painting, staining. We followed up on that information and met Leondras Owen. He came to our house, assessed our need, and gave us a competitive quote.  At the time, our deck stain was an issue for us. We were not pleased with our previous deck staining job, and we were concerned we would not be able to recapture the original beauty of our deck. We also needed to have our house powerwashed. We saw some photos of Mr. Owens work and decided to proceed with the job. Mr. Owens and his competent staff came during the hottest days of July and completed the task. They now only powerwashed our house (which had not been done in a while), but they cleaned, and restained our deck. I have to say that the deck looks brand new, and their work around the house not only met our expectation, it redefined our expectation of excellence! Fair, honest, hard-working, on-time, and exceeding expectations....that has been our experience with exceptionalpainting. We can recommend Mr. Owens and his company without reservation and would be glad to provide any additional information."
 
Richard and Peggy Thompson, Powerwashing and Deck Staining
 

5★★★★★ - "Exceptional Painting was absolutely exceptional. Respectful, meticulous, and speedy with their work. Our kitchen looks brand new. Their attention to detail was evident in their prep work, and they left the kitchen clean. Absolutely would recommend and encourage anyone to use."

in Chapel Hill, NC


5★★★★★ - "Leondras and his team do fabulous work. They are reliable, professional and provide a fantastic paint job. They pay attention to the details!"

in Chapel Hill, NC


5★★★★★ - "Exceptional Painting does exceptional work! They are professional, prompt, courteous and excellent painters. Plan to use them for additional projects and would highly recommend them to anyone looking for top quality, reasonable painters."

in Raleigh, NC


5★★★★★ - "I live in The Preserve at Jordan Lake in Chapel Hill. I have used Exceptional Painting for both interior and exterior painting. Leondras is very professional (as is his team) and courteous. The painting projects are very quickly and efficiently completed. They are extremely careful with protection of non-painting surfaces (floors, carpets, etc.). I have only ever been pleased with the work his company has done in the last two years. Two thumbs up!!"

in Chapel Hill, NC


5★★★★★ - "I had a really good experience with this company. The owner came by for a quote on the day it was requested. Got a quote within 24 hours and it was quite reasonable in comparison with one other. The owner described the process (where every door and every hinge gets numbered and put back in exactly the same place it was taken from) and he showed pictures of how the doors are sanded/primed/painted in his warehouse. He sent me photos of any doors/drawers that were damaged to document where there were problems that preceded him. There were problems with noticeable gaps in some of the doors - where the miter cuts in the corner of doors were not quite perfect. When the doors were strained, you never noticed, but painted white it was noticeable. He caulked those gaps and applied another coat of paint. The cabinets look fantastic - I think we'll double this investment when we sell."


5★★★★★ - "From the moment I met Mr. Owens to the completion of the job, Exceptional Painting was first class. My job was completed within the time estimated, the work was top notch, and the entire operation was professionally handled. The workers were prompt, near and a joy to work with."

in Raleigh, NC


5★★★★★ - "We have worked with Leondras and his staff several times...without a doubt, they are top quality craftsmen painters! VERY professional, detail-oriented. We had a problem with some incorrect caulking that had been done by a window contractor - Leondras knew right away what the problem was, and was NOT willing to paint because it would result in problems. He suggested we contact the window company - we did, they removed the problem caulk, and Leondras (along with Glen and Edgar) did a great job when they came back to complete the painting. We give Exceptional Painting our highest rating, and would use them for any paintwork. They live up to their company name, that's for sure."

in Cary, NC


"This is to provide an overview of my professional experience with Leondras Owens and his crew from Exceptional Painting Company. We chose Exceptional Painting based on their experience. They were hired to paint the inside and outside of a large residential project. There were no frustrations concerning completion, touchups or change requests. If you asked for something to be fixed, it was fixed right away. Leondras was extremely pleasant to work with, paid attention to detail and listened to the needs of the customer and addressed them in a very professional manner. He took great pride in his work, which is rare these days. The crew was friendly, polite and efficient. I would use their services again and would highly recommend them to others."

5★★★★★ - "We have really appreciated the fine job that Exceptional Painting has done for us. We’ve had a number of rooms and hallways painted by their crew in our Governor’s Club, Chapel Hill home. Their attention to detail and willingness to work with us to get everything just right means a lot."


5★★★★★ - "The Exceptional Painting team painted my kitchen cabinets, repaired drywall, painted the kitchen and two bed in my home. They also did ceiling work in the bathroom and foyer. I was totally impressed by their work, work ethics and professionalism. Mr.Owens and his team cared for and respected my modest home as if it was a luxury home. There was just one "you want what! ?" moments and they nailed it. Now, that's EXCEPTIONAL!"

in Raleigh, NC


5★★★★★ - "Exceptional Painting has done several jobs for us over the past four years and we have been delighted with the outcome of each of their projects.
They have removed wallpaper and glue, painted interior rooms and exterior trim and doors. All off those jobs have been done in an immaculate manner.
We live in the Governors Club in Chapel Hill and so often when we ask for quotes, we are left with the impression that we are being charged higher than going rates because of our club environment. We have always found Exceptional Painting to be very competitive and provide superior craftsmanship. We unconditionally endorse and recommend Loendras and his entire team of talented employees for any tasks you may have. You will not be disappointed.

5★★★★★ - "I recently hired Exceptional Painting to paint my kitchen cabinets. Leondras was very responsive and kept me informed and up to date throughout the process. I am very impressed by the high-quality work and attention to detail. Leondras and his team were courteous and friendly and I would definitely recommend them for any painting project!"

in Holly Springs, NC


5★★★★★ - "I cannot say enough great things about Leondras and Exceptional Painting! I needed two big patches of drywall repaired in my house in order to put it on the market to sell. When I contacted Leondras, he told me he could come out the next day and take care of it! He was on time and extremely professional. One of the patches was considerably more difficult, as it had a plumbing pipe sticking out of the wall at a weird angle, but he made both of them look great. I will definitely be using him again!"

in Apex, NC


5★★★★★ - "We had a great experience with Exceptional Painting recently. We had numerous popcorn ceilings to be repaired. They did an exceptional job blending the drywall repair from a whole house replumb. Leondras was super friendly and professional, and especially helpful throughout the process of deciding what we should do for the best results. It turned out even better than we expected! And the work was scheduled swiftly, though most other companies seemed unreachable during the "busy season."

in Fuquay Varina, NC


5★★★★★ - "Are you looking for a good painter? We have found a great painting company right here! They painted our main floor and what a great job they did. They repaired the drywall where pictures had been hung, were very careful not to spill or do any damage, and cleaned up when they were finished. They were also very quiet and polite. What more could you ask from a company? Oh yes, they were very reasonably priced! Great job Leondras and crew!"

in Hillsborough, NC


5★★★★★ - "Mr. Owens and his staff provided a very professional painting service this past weekend...they were on time, knowledgeable, efficient and the three rooms and touch-ups that were completed look great...

Their quote was in line with the other quotes I received; detail oriented - effects of paint type/flaws in the construction/protecting other surfaces, etc.; told me how he would go about the painting/what he would do, and did it right down to covering up all of our possessions and floors. Professional and followed through on everything!"

in Chapel Hill, NC


5★★★★★ - "We live in the Pittsboro area and searched for a long time to find someone to do a small painting job and some drywall repair. We decided on Mr. Owens’ company and are glad we did. He brought in his team of very professional people who each had a specific job. In six hours, they applied two coats of paint in two rooms and a hallway, painted all trimwork and doors and patched numerous holes in the walls. (One hole was the size of an outlet and you cannot tell it was there.) We have had other painters come in and we have never been as satisfied as we are with the job Exeptional Painting did. They truly live up to their name. David Scott 2/2/18"


5★★★★★ - "It wasn't easy making our Victorian bedroom walls look like new, but these guys did it with meticulous preparation and professional attention to every detail. We are thrilled."


5★★★★★ - "100% professional in every way. If only EVERY person you hired had this kind of stellar work ethic. I could go on and on and on but that pretty much says it all!! Thank you Leondras and crew!!"

in Chapel Hill, NC


5★★★★★ - "I got quotes from 5 or 6 cabinet painters and had conversations with each. Leondras is as professional and as much a perfectionist as they come. We LOVE our "new" cabinets. The whole experience was the best contractor experience we have ever had! He does what he says he is going to do and takes pride in doing it right. Would absolutely hire again and recommend HIGHLY."

in Cary, NC

in Morrisville, NC


5★★★★★ - "I recently hired Exceptional Painting to repaint 2 bedrooms and a large hallway, They had originally painted these for me way back in 2006.
Leondras and his team came on time and completed the job in two days just as they said they would. The price was exactly as quoted.
They did an exceptional job in all the work they did for me. They carefully covered everything not to be painted, did excellent prep work and painted everything so that it looks great! I highly recommend them for all of your painting needs. I plan to hire them again myself to repaint other rooms in my home.
"

in Chapel Hill, NC


5★★★★★ - "Leondras and his crew did a fantastic job! They painted numerous interior walls as well as pressure washing our exterior. It was done quickly, with no mess, and looks beautiful. I usually do my own painting, but never again!"


5★★★★★ - "Exceptional Painting painted 5 rooms in our house. They were very professional- moved & covered all furniture & floors, very precise edges, paint & trim look amazing! Definitely would recommend them (and I already have to my friends)"

in Apex, NC


5★★★★★ - "Exceptional Painting did an amazing job transforming our kitchen cabinets. Our cabinets were 28 year old pickled wood, with a lot of grime, grease, and use embedded in the wood. Upon finishing the cabinets my kitchen looks modern and pristine with the updated Alabaster cabinets. The work was done in a timely and efficient manner. Leondrus took the time to update us frequently about the work being done. To make the transformation even better I had them paint the trim. Inside and out the cabinets and drawers look great and I highly recommend Exceptional Painting."

in Chapel Hill, NC


5★★★★★ - "We hired Exceptional Painting to paint walls in our main floor, master bedroom, and bathrooms and baseboards, crown moldings, and trim throughout our main floor and upper level. We were absolutely thrilled with Leondras and his team. Their customer service and caliber of the work was truly exceptional from start to finish. After a late start on the first day due to some extended time required on the job before ours, Leondras made it up to us by putting in extra effort to repair several areas of our walls that had experienced significant damage to the very old dry wall. Then, I decided I didn't like the color in the master bedroom and Leondras redid it for only a small additional fee, even consulting with my husband on the color because I was out of town. (I love what they selected!) Then, we asked him to paint some additional trim that we had thought was already white, but Leondras noticed was not. Despite all of this, Leondras still finished the job on time, working several long days and coming on a Sunday with his family to complete it. Perhaps more important than their prompt service, Leondras and his team were kind, respectful, and honest. We entrusted them with a key to our home and they came and went the entire week as they needed, and we could not have felt more comfortable. Leondras' team often includes his two sons, Caleb and Brandon, who are also a pleasure to be around. Leondras and his team took impeccable care of our furniture and floors as he was painting, and put everything back exactly where it was. And finally, the finished product is beautiful and of the highest quality. I am a perfectionist, and I would have noticed any blemishes in the walls or trim, but everything is truly perfect. Leondras is detail-oriented and meticulous to an extent that I do not think anyone could have done a more perfect job. We could not be happier with our experience with Exceptional Painting, and we would not hesitate to hire them again!"

in Chapel Hill, NC


5 ★★★★★ - "Leondras and his team did an incredible job transforming my kitchen cabinets! My kitchen finally looks like the kitchen of my dreams! Leondras took the time to walk me through the cabinet refinishing process, have the cabinet paint color-matched to the trim in the house, and took great care to protect all of the surfaces of my home while the painting was ongoing. It was clear that Leondras and his team put a lot of time and care into their work. I have already received a ton of compliments on my new bright and fresh kitchen, and I am in love with the results! In addition, I had two interior stairwells painted, and they are perfect as well! Thank you so much for an Exceptional Painting experience!!!"

in Raleigh, NC


5 ★★★★★ - "It would be hard to describe how much we appreciated the work Mr. Owens did for us! We were in the middle of a do-it-yourself project gone wrong: painting cabinets. Within one day of calling him, Mr. Owens came to our house and told us what we needed to do to fix it ourselves, giving us a tutorial on how to do it. He then gave us several options of how he could help us, including doing all of it. His price was very competitive. He was very timely in finishing our cabinets, and saved our cabinets. Now, they look like we went out and bought cabinets with the finish already baked on! Mr. Owens is meticulous, inspects his work with a flashlight, and notices imperfections we would have never caught. The company is very professional and, moreover, we trust Mr. Owen. We cannot thank Mr. Owens and his staff at Exceptional Painting enough. We highly recommend their company."
