Interior and Exterior Painting

Welcome to Neilson's Painting!!

We are a family-owned business. That should be important to you as a customer as it is to us here at Neilson's Painting. As it should be. We are not some faceless corporation who swoops into the community whose primary purpose is to make as much money as they can for their shareholders. Rather, as a family-owned business, we support our other local businesses, worship, pay taxes, support the local schools just like our valued customers.

Quality is the foundation of our business and we would do nothing to risk that hard, and well earned reputation. After 22 years of serving the area you can count on us to deliver quality and excellence in each and every job that we undertake. We are the number one best painting service in Mission Viejo, California. Our service, workmanship and professionalism is the core to our success. Our company is licensed to do both residential and commercial, whether it's new construction or a remodel, we can handle it. No matter what you need painted, we've got you covered.



Our People

As a family-owned business we know that to do quality work, we need to have a quality workforce. We could not do it without our remarkable crew. Because we are family-owned our crew members are like part of our extended family. Most of our workforce has been with us for close to 15 years. That is important to us because this amazing crew takes it's responsibility to provide quality work very seriously.

The secret to delivering quality work, (and it should not be a secret at all), is attention to every detail. No detail is too small to be overlooked. You will know after we complete your job why we have absolute confidence in our workforce. We will not let our customers be less that 100% satisfied with the job we have done.



Picking the Right Contractor

Hiring a contractor can be a nerve-wracking and harrowing experience. We have heard all of the contractor horror stories. The anxiety in picking out a suitable contractor is understandable because there are a lot of people out there who give contractors a bad name. From painting contractors to plumbers, electricians, carpenters, to full construction crews, there are a lot of “bad apples” out there. There are contractors who would take your deposit and then disappear. Some start a job, but never finish. Others finish the job but do such shoddy work that it has to be redone (probably at double the cost!) by someone else.

We here at Neilson's Painting wish to help you weed out the “bad contractors.” We don't want one of these “bad contractors” to take advantage of you. Besides checking references, which every good contractor should make available to you, here are some of the “red flags” that you should know and look out for.

  • Unlicensed or Uninsured Painters - What would happen if something goes wrong on the job? A worker getting injured... or something on your building breaks... the work done isn't up to code... etc. If the contractor you hired is unlicensed or uninsured, you are liable and 100% on the hook. To be safe, before you sign on the dotted line, do an “instant license check” at the Contractors State License Board website, and then ask the contractor to provide proof that they really are suitably insured.
  • Under-licensed Contractors - Many people aren't aware of this, but a painting contracting license only covers a very specific range of services. It is not the same as a “general contractor” license. So, if a contractor offers to provide other services in addition to painting, make sure they hold the appropriate license to do so.
  • Requests for deposits over $1000 - By law, a California contractor can only request a deposit or 10% or $1000 – whichever is less. So sharpen those pencils or take out your calculator to make sure that the request for a deposit is in the range approved by California law.

So, before you hire a contractor, examine his references and be aware of the foregoing “red flags.” Because the people in this community are our friends and neighbors, and even if you elect not to choose Neilson's Painting, we want you to have the best outcome for this experience.

"Neilson Painting did an amazing job painting the exterior of our house. We had a few issues with the house that needed to be fixed (stucco patching, termite damage, etc.) and they made it look like they never existed. Walt had great ideas for paint color. I would recommend them to anyone. We will be bring them back after the first of the year to do the interior of our house." ~ J M. ~

"Walt and his crew did a great job painting our facility. The estimate process was quick and professional. They were very flexible with scheduling and were able to perform the work during the evening/weekends, which minimized the time we had to keep our business closed. They went above and beyond the scope of the job, paying special attention to all the little details. Our clients love the new look, and the gym looks amazing. We will definitely be using Neilson's Painting for all our painting needs moving forward." ~ Richard D. ~

"Walt's team did an absolutely beautiful job painting the entire interior of our house. Walt helped us pick the perfect paint colors, and was incredibly patient with us as we mulled over which ones to use. And the guys on his painting team were true artists. Everything was precise, clean lines, smooth surfaces...they even patched a hole in the ceiling so perfectly there's no way you'd ever know it was there. And when we added a job last-minute (painting the stairs, which can be tricky) they made them look exactly as we'd hoped they would (even better, really). Price was reasonable, and the result is truly transformational...we love our "new" house, thanks to Walt and his team." ~ Tracy S. ~

"Neilson Painting’s owner, Walt Neilson, is the absolute BEST professional painter in the business! I have worked with Walt for over 15 Years and I can tell you that no one out there comes close to the Quality, Reliability, Value and 1st class Precision that Walt and his crew provide for their clients!" ~ Ben Cufone ~

"Walt is a shining example of professionalism and a man who operates with integrity. He is a pleasure to work with and his upbeat, positive energy compliments his extensive technical knowledge as a seasoned painter and business owner. It is with great confidence that I recommend you use Neilson’s Painting for any of your home or commercial painting needs." ~ Mark Nicole ~
