"Jose and his crew are the absolute best.  Their quality of workmanship and attention to detail are top shelf.  They are meticulous with detail and their ability to fix and repair damaged walls and doors is magical.  They are truly the best. Their bids are reasonable and if they can't get to you right away, they are worth the wait.  They've painted my house exterior and my interior, including doors, base, crown and cabinets.  If I could give them a six star review, I would." Grant Kendall, Feb 2023

"Our interior designer recommended Jose and his crew to paint the cupboards in our kitchen. We got a reasonable quote so we signed up Jose was here in time. Did everything they said they were going to do and did a fabulous job. Would highly recommend Empower." Michael Jan 2021

"I hired Empower Painting to paint the exterior of my home.  I got three estimates;  all seemed professional and experienced.  Empower Painting wrote the most detailed bid and had the lowest price.  Jose, the owner, visits the site, asks a lot of questions and makes a lot of suggestions, so his bid is very specific.  Jose can do some carpentry repairs, and his workmen did a very good prep job, securing loose siding, scraping where needed and then priming scraped areas, cutting out bad caulking and recaulking with high quality material.  They use a "spray and back-roll or back-brush" painting method, which seems to have worked well.  They suggested a few excellent paint companies;  we used Rodda and upgraded to Rodda Ultimate II paint for a small extra charge.  The Empower Painting crew was led by Israel, a friendly and professional guy, easy to work with, and he didn't forget any details.  The crew worked very long hours to take advantage of good weather.  Billing was exactly as the bid specified.  Jose visited the job site most days and was easy to contact.  I recommend Empower Painting with no reservations." Dave W, September 2018

"We had done our due diligence in selecting a painting company, so we anticipated being satisfied. But the finished product was beyond our imagination!  The extraordinary attention to detail, as noted by others, left me shaking my head in disbelief. For example, the careful removal of door hardware and outside light fixtures, which I thought unnecessary, did in fact add a crisp, new look.  Additionally, Jose diplomatically suggested other things which I would have neglected, and now I find myself deep in gratitude that I listened to him.  The prep work was extraordinary and I mean wow, the painting could literally not have been better, and the clean up and communication throughout the project was A+.  I am not a high grader, but Empower Painting deserves all my accolades and more for a truly outstanding job." John May 2018

"Jose and his team just finished painting our home. if there were a 10 star option I would have given that. From start to finish it has been a great experience. He was timely on his bid, very professional and thorough in his explanation of what he would be doing. His communication was very good. He kept in touch and met his commitment to the schedule of when it would be completed. Price was very competitive. His crew was great as well..worked long days and were very polite and professional. They arrived on time, cleaned up each night, and answered any questions we had. The thing we were so impressed with was their attention to detail to make sure everything was done correctly.  They replaced locksets we had purchased, repaired/replaced some rotten wood, removed multiple nails, screws, staples from prior owner. Would definitely recommend." Jan W, August 2017

"Wow, what a great company.......Jose and his team refinished our wood front door and sidelights. The door and hardware look better now than when we bought the house new.  Our job was so small most painters wouldn't even come out and give us a bid, but Jose did.  Being a small job I thought they might not do a great job, but they did a fantastic job.  They worked hard the whole time they were here (4 days off and on), cleaned up well each night, were very professional and I could tell they not only took pride in their work but they liked doing it.  Since they had to take the door off all day the first day they were in an out of our house and garage but they were so respectful and courteous. I loved the technique they used of attaching plastic to the gutters so they could work when it rained, but they stayed dry and keep the water off of the door.  I guess they can paint houses all year long using that technique.  I have recommended them to our neighbors and when we need our house painted I will be calling again." Elizabeth Nov 2016

"We were extremely happy with the work that Jose and his team performed just last week (6/20/2016 to 6/24/2016). Other companies showed up to bid, walked around the house and gave their estimate. Jose asked me to walk through the job with him. He asked questions, explained the work they would do, and he offered a number of suggestions for improvements that I wouldn't have thought of. We've got a 3400 Square foot house and a 30x40 shop. Jose and team not only completed the pressure washing and painting within one week, he also incorporated adding some wood trim to the shop so that it would match our house and he replaced 3 bad window trim boards. The job also included refinishing our front door, staining our front patio and sanding and refinishing a pine ceiling over our front and back patios. The team (5 or more people) worked 8am to 7pm daily. The cleanup after the job was excellent, other than seeing the perfectly painted and trimmed house you can't even tell they were there. All of the patio furniture and other items were put back exactly as they were. I couldn't recommend Jose and his team from Empower Painting more highly." Dave  Long, June 2016

"I highly recommend Empower Painting to anyone in need of deck refinishing. Jose came out to our place and put together a very reasonable bid package, well below three other competitor's bids. He evaluated the condition of the wood in our deck and recommended the perfect stain to enhance our deck's appearance. His team of professionals came out on the 4th of July and worked tirelessly all day until the job was done to our satisfaction. The entire process from initial bid to completed deck took less than a week and was well within our budget. I cannot thank Jose and Empower Paint enough for their effort and professionalism." The Audens, Oregon Veterans July 4, 2013

"I am not just a repeat customer but a three-peat customer at Empower Painting. I first utilized Jose's services when he painted our complete exterior, trim and all. His work was superb and he was amazing fast! A year later we contacted him again to paint our kitchen, dining room, living room, the hall, all the base boards and ceilings in the house. His work has exceeded my expectations and his price is unbeatable. I am very thrifty and always receive several quotes when contracting house projects. Jose's prices are always considerable less yet his work is excellent and he is always very friendly. Most recently, we hired him to paint our daughter's house (interior). Again, his Military Discount quote was almost 1/2 the price we received from other painters. Without any question, I highly recommend Jose @ Empower Painting and have already recommended his service to several friends & family." The Browning's, Oregon Veterans

"We recently had our home painted by Empower Painting LLC and couldn't be happier with the results. Jose, the owner and his crew started the preparation by power washing the house and then began preparing after waiting a day for the house to dry. They caulked all doors, windows and seams, counter sunk all protruding nails, filled the holes with a product like bond and then sanding them to smooth. They power screwed loose boards and pounded in all nails, sprayed rust-proofing primer to cover nail heads and other areas of rust, covered all glass surfaces with plastic film, masked off the foundation and other small areas that were not to be painted, covered all shrubs, paving stones along with taking off the light fixtures. The siding on the house was lightly sanded either by hand or palm sander to make them smooth. They sprayed 2 coats of heavy body latex paint, painted accent color and trim, along with our three doors, our patio floor and front foundation. Every color we used, five in all had two coats even the exposed gas meter had a camouflage paint mixture to blend in with our used brick. The crews of three did an outstanding job, were prompt, professional, friendly, and very tidy, cleaned up and hauled away any trash every night too. They took their job very serious and were always ready to answer any questions we might have as they worked. Jose even helped us when we were undecided about a color choice, replaced a board on our patio and repaired a side door on our garage, going the extra mile to pick up the materials on his own. I would highly recommend Empower Painting LLC to anyone looking for a thorough, professional painting experience, with fantastic results you won't believe!" Mrs. Long, July 20, 2013

"Jose and his professional crew painted our home here in Oregon City last week. We have cedar siding and it had been neglected for several years. We had never caulked around our windows and doors and several cracks in the cedar siding were prominent. Jose and his guys filled all the cracks, sealed around our doors and windows and sanded our fascia boards, then filled the holes. They also painted our two 10X12 storage sheds as well as our patio canopy framing, which had to be brush painted by hand. These guys worked their hearts out. They did about 1 & 1/2 days preparation and another day to paint. They sprayed the house, then rolled a 2nd coat on, which really forced it into the wood siding. They even painted our concrete foundation with special paint. They did an excellent job cleaning up and they used numerous tarps to catch any paint or chips. We intend to call Jose again later this year to estimate the interior painting of our home. They did such a fantastic job on the exterior, we know they'd do a good job on the inside, too. We've had several favorable comments from neighbors telling us how beautiful our home now looks. That tends to make it all worthwhile. I highly recommend Empower Painting LLC to anyone who needs house painting services. They are truly conscientious and friendly, too!" Mr. Holthouse, July 30, 2013

"Jose and his staff are truly wonderful. We hired them to paint the entire inside of our home - ceilings and walls in every room and bathroom. They were flexible with scheduling, and did great, quality work. It truly was amazing to see the pride and care they took in their work, coupled with how quickly it was completed; those two things spoke volumes about their professionalism and excellent craftsmanship/skill. Words cannot express how grateful my husband and I are that we found them. Our home looks smooth, clean and inviting now, and it is because of Jose and his team. It was a bonus that we were able to hire a small, local business and that his wife is a veteran! It was a completely satisfying transaction from start to finish. We will definitely be referring Empower Painting to our friends and family!"Mrs. Yoder, June 23, 2013

"Jose and his workers exceeded both my husband's and my expectations. They were punctual, worked very hard, did excellent prep work, and the painting job was perfect. The men were friendly but remained very focused on their job. They even did some extra stuff just because they saw it was needed but was not connected to the painting job. We have very tall ceilings and stairs and they did a great job despite the awkward spots. We highly recommend them. "Pam and Tim, August 22, 2013

"I am so happy to write a recommendation for Jose and his crew! Empower Painting LLC was professional, polite, and so hard working. Our home is a 1921 bungalow with original asbestos siding that look so good now, that I've been asked if we had replaced our home siding! The trim looks awesome, straight well cut in lines. My front porch is an oasis of retreat now where I can sit, enjoy the quiet and read a good book. Jose and his team also painted our detached garage, the original making it look like new again. I would highly recommend Empower Painting LLC for any of your paining needs. They were within our budget, did an outstanding job and cleaned up all debris as promised. They truly take pride in the work they do and it was a pleasure giving them our business." Mrs. Hale, Veteran August 23, 2013

We hired Empower Painting LLC owned by my dear friend and battle buddy, Annabel-Jose Ortega Radillo and her husband, to restore our living room and dining room to their 1908 charm. They replaced all of the old molding (crown molding as baseboards?!?!) and installed picture molding, tall baseboards, door and window trim and a room divider. They also painted the walls, ceiling and trim. I'm sharing before and after pictures for their business to use and because I finally have a house that feels like mine now! Heaven knows living in a turn of the century house that looked like the 1990's was killing me. The Norris's, June 2013

"We had an extension put on my deck and it was not done well. Jose came over, fixed all the flaws, stained, built stair rails and really made our disappointing deck into something we loved!!! Jose also painted my son's room for him before he started high school, my son thought it would be cool to have his room in his high school colors. His room has open beam ceilings which were brown and we wanted them white, a large contrast wall that we wanted one color and trim another. Jose did a wonderful job and since I am a veteran he gave me a great deal. He completed the job in a very timely manner and left the room cleaner then he found it :) When we need work like this done again, we will be calling Jose and his team!" Mrs. Martinez, Oregon Veteran

"Jose proved himself to be as professional and loyal to his reputation as a highly skilled painter. He helped me choose the perfect color for my vintage-styled deck and it was amazing! His work was impeccable and first class. I definitely recommend Jose and his team at Empower Painting for any high quality painting at the best price you'll ever receive. Not only do they serve our local community, but they are a veteran and family owned business here in the Northwest. I totally support their business and wish them the best in all their business endeavors! Thanks Empower Painting!." Mrs. Ortega, Oregon Veteran

"Jose painted our 2400 SqFt home in a day and a half. It was a flawless beautiful job. We would recommend him for any house, Very Professional and affordable. Thank you for a Job well done." The Heaton's, Oregon Veterans

"Jose painted the inside of my house and did a great job at an amazing price! Already scheduled my next paint job for July 2013." Mr. Stuart

"A more professional man and crew I could not have found to paint my home!!! The work was top quality and absolutely beautiful!! The price was completely fair and my family and I appreciate the discount for being military." Ms. Martinez, Oregon Veteran
