We did the typical “try to find a quick deal on Groupon” thing . . . when that didn’t work out we did the “I think I would attempt it myself” thing . . . after that was even worse of a fail we finally let the professional at M Carlson Painting work their magic. We are SOOO happy. They are not only great to work with but did such a professional / flawless job on our bedroom. Thanks!

I first hired Matt for a job to re-paint the entire interior of my home about years ago when I was doing a significant remodel. Matt not only did a fantastic job on the painting, but gave me some very valuable advice about the remodel generally. I then hired him again a few years later to do the exterior. Again, he gave me some really good advice which actually saved me a ton of money (at his expense), and again he did the work quickly and professionally. Not only does Matt do high quality work at reasonable prices, but he provides honest, helpful feedback on all aspects of your project.***Update – hired Matt for a 3rd time recently – HUGE job. He was the only contractor on the entire project I was happy with.

Matt’s pricing was fair and his crew were professional, tidy, and finished the job in a timely manner. We would use them again and recommend them!

M. Carlson painting did an amazing job! Fast and easy bids, on time work and all over great work. I would recommend their services to anybody.

Matt and his team did a wonderful job on our whole house exterior paint project. After another client referred Matt he was extremely responsive and provided a detailed, extremely competitive quote within days of our initial conversation. When work started his project manager was on-site to describe everything that would be taking place and took time to listen to our concerns/needs and addressed all of them. Matt’s crew started immediately and did an exceptionally professional job in prepping, painting, and cleanup. At the end of each work day the guys cleaned up everything – and I mean everything – which made a huge difference. The finished product looks awesome, exactly what we envisioned and expected. Matt’s commitment to quality and customer service at a reasonable price has gained him a long-term customer.

I have hired M Carlson Painting for many projects over the years, and will continue to do so. What makes M Carlson stand apart from their competition is the professional workmanship, after all this is the lasting impression that remains behind on the job site for all to see. As a General Contractor, I also am very grateful for the communication with my company, as well as my customers for which they are working. Working in someones home or business is a very personal job, as these guys understand that, and go out of their way to describe the whats and the whys as they go along. Hire with confidence, I know I do, Leon.

I have used M Carlson Painting before – and had such a great experience, they were my first call when I decided to sell my house. Re-painted most of the interior and my front door (exterior) and it turned out fantastic. Very professional, quick, and outcome was perfect. My house sold in 6 days. I would recommend them to anyone in the Cities.

Matt and his crew are very responsive and aim to please. Matt has done several projects at our house including interior wall/trim painting for our mud room and master bath remodel and he has stained our large deck. In every case the final result has been fantastic. What I appreciate most about Matt is that he is willing to fix things in a timely manner if something is not looking quite right during the project to ensure we stay happy.
