Reviews & Testimonials
★★★★★ - "We had a ceiling leak from a plumbing problem and Mr Owens did a fantastic job repairing the drywall and matched the ceiling paint to perfection. We were in the process of moving to a larger home. We hired his company to paint the whole interior of the new house. My husband and I are very particular with the quality of the painting and he fixed some crown moulding that was poorly done by the previous owner.
He did a fabulous job and was very pleasant to work with. I would highly recommend him. A very nice honest guy."

★★★★★ - "When I reached out to Exceptional Painting about drywall repairs and interior painting, we were looking for a pretty quick turnaround between the estimate and getting the work done (our house was a bit of a mess from some other work, and we wanted to get it back in order). After Leondras shared some of his recent work, I knew he was the right choice. I reached back out after his initial inspection and estimate, and he was able to work us into his already busy schedule and get our project started and finished in great time with exceptional results! We can’t even tell where the holes in our walls and ceiling were after the job was complete. Thanks for everything!"
Adam C., Drywall Repair in Cary, NC2022-09-15
★★★★★ - "I had a huge hole in my wall from an elbow going through it. I was such in a frenzy, and didn’t know what to do, being that this was the first time this has happened. Went through numerous searches on google looking up different companies. My main concern was finding the right company that could repair the wall and match the exact paint to the point that you couldn’t tell the hole was ever there. I found this company and I was so pleased with the work! Not only did he adjust his schedule to mine but most importantly, YOU COULD NEVER TELL THE HOLE WAS THERE, after he completed the job. It took no time and was very professional. Let’s just say if this ever happens again, I have the company number on speed dial."

★★★★★ - "We contracted with Exceptional Painting to paint our kitchen cabinets and some of the interior walls of our just purchased home in Durham. Mr. Leandrus Owens was very professional, courteous, and friendly. He supplied us with a quote in a timely fashion. When the cabinets were back up and the walls finished I was amazed at the quality of the work. Every painted surface was smooth and there were absolutely no splatters or drips anywhere. Truly it was an exceptional job and I recommend this company without reservation."
★★★★★ - "We were very pleased with Exceptional Painting. We used them to paint our kitchen cabinets in our home in Fuquay Varina. Leondrous is very much a perfectionist and was extremely polite through the entire process. The attention to detail was top knotch! His staff was also kind and friendly. He even offered to come back and do touch ups once our kitchen was finished and floors complete. Will definitely stay in touch and use them again!"

Melanie C., Cabinet Refinishing in Raleigh, NC2022-07-12
★★★★★ - "Very pleased that the good reviews are spot on and we chose Exceptional Painting to paint our kitchen cabinets. Leondras is very meticulous and has great attention to detail. Our new hardwood floors and appliances were well protected - I see no evidence that they were ever here, other than the beautiful white cabinets. He didn't consider the job complete until any touch-ups were caught and addressed (by him or us). He communicated well throughout the process and always gave notice when he and his team were on their way. Overall he really went above and beyond, and I'll be sure to recommend him to friends and family, especially since his service area is so large (includes Raleigh, Durham, Chapel Hill, and beyond)."

We appreciated Leondras being able to get our job scheduled quickly; however, we did provide quite a bit of flexibility when it came to specific times he needed to be at the house. Overall we are happy with the results and the pricing was very competitive."

★★★★★ - "Let me begin by saying this...I have never had anyone as meticulous and professional as Mr. Owens! My kitchen cabinets are stunning! I knew they would be beautiful, but I had not idea they would this beautiful, for Mr. Owens went above and beyond. I will not hire anyone else but him, for he is an excellent contractor with a very kind and beautiful heart. He is a true craftsman, for his finish products says it all. If you want someone who is caring, thoughtful, communicative and a contractor who pays attention to every detail, hire Mr. Owens. Yes, I will hire Mr. Owens again for all of my painting needs. He, in my opinion, is the best! Thank you so much, Mr. Owens, for your God-given talent as well as your heart and professionalism."

★★★★★ - "Exceptional Painting transformed our builder-level cabinets into something we can admire every day. While they were in our home, their respect for cleanliness in our space was total.
During the project, decisions we made caused problems we had not foreseen. Exceptional Painting stepped up to make drywall repairs and outstanding painting repairs.
We did not feel like there were workers in the house. They were friends helping us to make our kitchen/baths re-do perfect.
When we need a professional job done in the future, we will call Mr. Owen and his lively crew. Thank you."

★★★★★ - "Hillsborough, interior and cabinets painting!"
★★★★★ - "I could not be happier with my kitchen cabinets! They are gorgeous! Leondras was a pleasure to work with - friendly, professional, responsive, and an excellent craftsman. He provided the quote, scheduled a time, and did not deviate once confirmed. I would recommend him to anyone looking for high-quality painting services. You will not be disappointed!!"
★★★★★ - "Leondras and his team painted our built-in bookcases next to our fireplace. They did a great job. I could tell they had done this before by using the right primer and prepping it correctly. They really transformed 1980s built-ins into something modern. Leondras was very professional and went the extra mile to patch the doors to make them look nice. I would absolutely recommend Leondras and his team to paint any cabinets or built-ins."
★★★★★ - "Exceptional Painting did a fantastic job with the exterior painting of our house and refurbishing our deck. It looks brand new. Leondras and his team were efficient, thorough, and carried out the work in a very timely manner, dedicated, all the way from power washing to painting. I will use Exceptional Painting for all our future painting needs!"
★★★★★ - "My experience with Mr. Leondras of Exceptional Painting was more than outstanding. I found his company on the internet several years ago and kept the information. I was impressed with his professionalism, photos of his work showing his process of cabinet painting, and his expert communication. I kept this reference and when my daughter needed her kitchen and bathroom cabinets painted, I gave her this information. She and her husband were thrilled with the quality of his work given to the home where they just moved. Then I decided to wait no longer and I had Mr. Leondras and his assistant, Mr. Willie, paint my kitchen cabinets white. The outcome was gorgeous - even better than when my cabinets were new. There was extensive prep work, surface protection, and excellent clean-up. The double cabinet finish makes the painting very durable and beautiful. I had never had cabinet knobs and drawer pulls and he added those.
Mr. Leondras is a Christian who is not timid to show his faith. One day while he was painting, I was upstairs when I heard him start singing hymns. His voice is remarkable and as I listened while working at my computer, I felt a sense of peace as I recalled these same hymns from childhood to adulthood. During COVID and just losing two dear friends, I needed to hear those hymns. It felt like I was getting a hug from heaven. Tears swelled in my eyes. It was such a blessing to me. So not only did I receive gorgeous white cabinets, I received a much-needed touch of God's love."
Linda H., Clayton, NC2021-03-11
★★★★★ - "Mr. Leondras and his team did a wonderful job painting my kitchen cabinets in Durham! I couldn’t decide on a color and he took the time to bring me over samples and work with me. My kitchen looks brand new, love the lighter color. Mr. Leondras kept me posted every day and always cleaned up after they were done that day. His pricing also includes a warranty on the cabinets. Highly recommend! Will be using them again in the future for painting."
Alayna in Durham, NC2021-02-17
★★★★★ - "Mr. Leondras and his team were great to work with. They did a great job repairing water damage to my drywall in the ceilings in two rooms. They did such a good job I had him come out recently and paint three rooms in my home. The house doesn’t look the same. You won't be disappointed in their work."

★★★★★ - "We live in Governor Park Chapel Hill. Leondras gave our kitchen and master bath a makeover that looks awesome! The dark cabinets are now white and look wonderful. The timeline was exactly as quoted. He truly is passionate about his work and it shows. Everything was painted using a sprayer, the finish is very durable. I did make a couple of marks accidentally and he came back to repair. Extremely happy and highly recommend."

★★★★★ - "Leondras did an excellent job painting my outdated kitchen cabinets. I chose to have them painted white. What an amazing transformation! The price was considerably cheaper than replacing with new cabinets. Leondras is very professional, attentive to details, and aims to please the customer. He's absolutely wonderful to work with. I was so impressed that I had him come back to paint my kitchen walls, living room, and foyer. I am planning to have him paint additional rooms in the very near future. I highly recommend Leondras Exceptional Painting for all your painting needs."

★★★★★ - "I'm so happy I went with Exceptional Painting to paint our kitchen cabinets. Leondras was great to work with. He was extremely flexible around my schedule, as I had to change the timing of things last minute a few times. He was a joy to be around. Since I enjoy doing some work myself, he showed me some painting tips which I'm very grateful for. He was honest in everything he did. And the job turned out great. We are very happy with our cabinets. They look beautiful. On top of that, he was finished with the job ahead of schedule. Leondras even came over after the job and showed me how to touch up the paint if I needed to. Overall, I was very happy with my experience with Exceptional Painting and I would highly recommend them."

Samantha in Durham, NC2020-07-27
★★★★★ - "We contacted 5 contractors, but only 2 gave us the quote the way we asked. Leondras was one of the two. It was clear he had experience, knowledge, and professionalism. We are very glad we hired him. His crew did a fantastic job, cost was competitive, and they arrived on time and completed the work as promised. Communication was outstanding. We will use them for sure in the future. Glad they were on Yelp, it made them easy to find and set up a quote."

★★★★★ - "Highly Recommend!!
We can't say enough good things about Exceptional Painting...the name pretty much says it all. We had several different painters describe their process and provide us with estimates. It was not until we met with Leondras that we finally felt comfortable about having our kitchen cabinets painted. The process took just under a week and the results are even better than we hoped for. The surfaces are smooth and durable. Leondras is also an excellent communicator...something that is rare these days.
An excellent job by a super nice guy!"
Diane & Van in Pittsboro, NC2020-03-09
★★★★★ - "Leondras and his team with Exceptional Painting did an excellent job of painting
our kitchen and family room. They arrived on time, covered everything that we were not able to move out of the room, did patchwork and finished the job the same day. Everyone was courteous and efficient. Leondras also did some extra trim painting that was a bonus for us. I would definitely recommend him to do any painting.
The price was very reasonable."
Beth Purcell in Holly Springs, NC2020-02-24
★★★★★ - "Exceptional Painting did a fantastic job creating a seamless patch in our ceiling. We had a 2'x2' hole cut into our ceiling by another contractor who ghosted us before finishing the work. We reached out via Yelp for help patching this and Leondras answered quickly, provided an affordable rate and flexible scheduling. He did a professional job of covering our furniture and creating a bubble for his work area to ensure dust would not damage our furniture. The work was completed efficiently and took about one afternoon. The spot is not noticeable on our ceiling and it looks great! Thank you Exceptional Painting."
Hannah Papes in Holly Springs, NC2020-02-24
★★★★★ - "Very professional and high quality work. Not all painting companies are created equal. Leondras provides excellent service at a fair price. Don't hire the cheapest company out there or you'll be unhappy with the result. Exceptional Painting is just that...exceptional."

★★★★★ - "We had an outstanding experience with Exceptional Painting last month. They refaced our kitchen cabinets. The quality of painting, workmanship, process, and technique was excellent. The owner, Mr. Leondras has demonstrated vast and strong knowledge in his field, perfection, and exhibited that he is a detail-oriented person. We were 110 % satisfied with the final product to our kitchen cabinets. In addition to a job well done, the cost was very reasonable and affordable. I would highly recommend Exceptional Painting to any customer who is looking for outstanding quality, affordable price, and great customer service. It was a pleasure to work with Leondras and indeed it was was truly an exceptional experience !!!"

Whether it's a small job or the entire house, the job is always high-quality, done on time, and at a fair price. We recently needed some last-minute painting done for a rental property in Durham. The Exceptional Painting team was able to squeeze me in the next day, started the job and within 3 days, the new tenants moved into a freshly painted house. The house looked great and tenants were happy!"

We highly recommend Exceptional Painting and will call on them again for our next painting project."
Peter & Heidi in Chapel Hill, NC2019-06-20
★★★★★ - "After getting multiple quotes to have our kitchen cabinets painted, we chose Exceptional Painting and could not have been more pleased with our choice. Mr. Owens was very professional and helpful throughout the whole process and went above and beyond to make sure that the cabinets were perfect and exceeded our expectations! You can tell he takes great pride in his work. I wanted our island to be a different color than the cabinets, and I had picked out a color that had to be matched at the store where Mr. Owens gets his paint and it was a perfect match! His communication was top notch and stayed in touch every step of the way to let us know when he would be there and when he would be done. I highly recommend Exceptional Painting for any of your painting needs!"

I’d highly recommend Exceptional Painting."
Michael Brown in Durham, NC2019-06-18
★★★★★ - "From the knock on the door to the finished product. Leondras more than exceeded our expectations. For a living I’m a contractor and always expect nothing but the best from my crew.

Grover, Cabinet Painting in Durham, NC2019-03-18
★★★★★ - "We came across Exceptional Painting years ago when we lived in Raleigh. Their professionalism, prompt response, quick project completion, communication, and customer care blew us away! After moving to Youngsville, we were concerned that we might be outside of their service area - but, no...Mr. Owens and his team have since gladly, over the years, assisted us on three more interior painting and dry wall repair projects and we couldn't be more thrilled! We recommend them to everyone we know. Customer service and quality care are truly a priority for them. The work they've done for us (all interior rooms and spaces, crown molding, wainscoting, ceiling, baseboards, shelving, trimming) is absolutely exceptional and it's why our family keeps calling them back whenever we need projects completed. Thank you, Mr. Owens! You and your team will always remain our go-to company!"

★★★★★ - "I needed some interior painting done that included some ceiling repair. The work was completed in a day and everything looks great! They covered up everything while they worked and left the work area spotless when they left."
Carole S. in Morrisville, NC2019-02-04
★★★★★ - "I hired the Exceptional Painting Crew to start work just after Christmas 2018. They painted my whole house interior with the exception of a few rooms I did myself. Best customer service experience ever. They took the time to pay attention to the details which are crucial in any job. I was amazed when they told me on New Year's Eve that they were done for the day but that they would remove all plastic and drop cloths and such so that our family of 6 could enjoy the Holiday on the comfort of our furniture which was all covered in plastic. Then they re-covered everything the next day and continued the work to completion on January 3, 2019. I just wanted to say that I am quite pleased, amazed and happy with your work. Thank you to you and your team for an exceptional job. Stay in touch please Mr. Leondras.

★★★★★ - "I found Exceptional Painting on Angie's List, where they had a 5-star rating. Angie's List has never steered me wrong, so I rang them up to handle a re-painting of my family room and kitchen ceiling.
Leondras and his crew exceeded expectations! They had my family room and kitchen sealed up like a CDC Ebola lab and re-did the ceiling in record time with no spills and no mess. When it comes time to re-paint my house, Exceptional Painting will be my go-to from now on."

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."

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.

John Miketa in Durham, NC2018-09-06
★★★★★ - "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!"
Erika Powell in Apex, NC2018-09-05
★★★★★ - "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."
Paula in Fuquay Varina, NC2018-09-04
★★★★★ - "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!"
Amber K in Durham, NC2018-09-04
★★★★★ - "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.

★★★★★ - "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!"

★★★★★ - "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!!"

home owner in Chapel Hill, NC2018-04-18
★★★★★ - "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."

★★★★★ - "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."

★★★★★ - "Exceptional Painting painted all rooms, closets and ceiling in our new retirement home. 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!"

★★★★★ - "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"

★★★★★ - "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."

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."

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."
Adrienne in Durham, NC2018-01-08
★★★★★ - "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."

★★★★★ - "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."

Carolyn in Apex, NC
★★★★★ - "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."
Meg & Matt Segal in Cary, NC
★★★★★ - "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."
Gloria Davis in Durham, NC
★★★★★ - "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."
Cathryn in Chapel Hill, NC
★★★★★ - "Excellent job and customer service! They take the time to the prep work and the quality of the paint job was simply EXCEPTIONAL! Thanks Leondras!"
Terryl (Terri) Williams in Durham, NC
★★★★★ - "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!"
Brigitte & Scott in Chapel Hill, NC
★★★★★ - "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!!!"
Stefanie in Raleigh, NC
★★★★★ - "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."

Over the last ten years, you have performed exterior painting, deck staining, power washing, and several interior painting projects for us. We have always had competitive bidding so we know your prices are fair. You have always kept your commitment to show up on time and be finished on time. Your crews work quietly and consistently. You've shown flexibility and patience when I've made changes mid-project. And best of all, you always do a fine quality job and clean up daily, good as new."

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."

★★★★★ - "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"
