I have lived in my house for 13 years and have hired 6 painters, with Bob Van Gunten's being the last. I wish I had known The Van Gunten painters early on. The job they undertook was extensive. They stripped wallpaper and painted a living room, dining room, hallway, and 2 bathrooms. They did an outstanding job. The workers were punctual and hard working. They cleaned up every night. I was so pleased with their work and give them the highest recommendation. 10/02/17

I hired Robert C. VanGunten, Inc. to paint my condominium in Willoughby. Bob came out to give me an estimate and I told him I needed my whole interior condominium painted. I needed to have the living room painted (with very high ceilings), all hallways, kitchen, family room, bedroom on the first floor ( including inside closets) and the second floor which included a master bedroom (including inside closets) and bathroom, a smaller bedroom and loft area. All ceilings were painted in the above areas as well. Being a single woman, Bob gave me a very affordable price that would work with my budget. Bob and his team of painters (Mark, Pete and Sue) started on Tuesday, 1/17/17 and finished on Friday 1/20/17. Bob uses his own employees, some of whom have been with him for years. No subcontractors which is a real plus! The professional skills of the painters were excellent. They were punctual, detailed in their work, cleaned up nicely at the end and did an EXCEPTIONAL job! I was very pleased with the beautiful painting. I am planning to have Bob and his team come back later in the year for some additional work. If you are looking for a first-rate contractor, Bob VanGunten is a great choice. I highly recommend him. I'm extremely glad I selected him after interviewing other contractors. I felt Bob had the expertise, skills and years of experience with excellent reviews. He and his team were very easy to work with. Great job Team VanGunten! A+ for a job well done. 2/17/17

We were very pleased with the work done by Bob Van Gunten and his team. They were pleasant, respectful, reliable and skilled - they've worked together for a while now (so no subs or temporary workers). We got other estimates which came in lower, but we went with Bob because he discussed specifics needed for a house like ours ( old cedar wood siding, chronic peeling problem) - as opposed to a "cookie cutter approach". He was agreeable when we asked for a few items to be handled differently once work was underway. Bob has years of experience and good expertise. "Good old-fashioned craftsmanship." 8/17/16

Bob and his team painted two full floors of our 100 year old home - kitchen, hallway, stairs, dining room, living room, den, vestibule, powder room, and four bedrooms. The house had been poorly maintained; every surface needed to be sanded, scraped, patched, and painted. Bob went over and above at every step in the process and followed up to ensure that everything was done to the highest standard. He was responsive, his team was diligent, and they finished the project on time. When I pointed out areas that needed touching up he addressed my requests right away. If you're looking for skillful restoration - not just a new coat of paint - Bob's a great choice. 03/24/15

I have used Bob Van Gunten several times since moving to Shaker Heights, OH. He and his crew do an EXCELLENT job - work is the best quality, price is good for the quality of the work being done - true craftsmen. Bob's also done some plaster repair as part of the work - I cannot even see that there were ever any repairs having been made. He's a first-class contractor and I will continue to use him.02/21/14
