It's so true that a new paint job does wonders when it comes to home renovations.

I didn't realize just how much of an upgrade it would be going from dark wood trim to white.  Painting the dark wood trim to white, along with the downstairs rooms and walls, has increased the value of our home significantly. Who knew a paint job could be such a big deal?

Painting is something we've been putting off for way too long—like years. And if you throw in a busy lifestyle with jobs, kids and everything in between, it's easy to put home improvements on the back burner.

Well, we finally got our act together and called the nice people at ProGroup Contracting in New Bedford. I am big on reading reviews and getting referrals from friends and that's exactly what I did. My girlfriend Maureen was one of the reasons we went with ProGroup Contracting, as she raved about not just the painting they did for the exterior and interior of her home, but they also did the update on her family room and upstairs bath. The before and after photos of her improvements were amazing.

ProGroup Contracting not only did an excellent job with the painting and detailed trim work but they were very accommodating to our work/life schedule with the kids and worked around us. I can't say enough about Louie, who is one of their lead painters, and his team of guys.  Trustworthy, reliable and skilled are just a few ways my husband and I would describe the ProGroup team.

Check out some of our before and after photos. Thank you ProGroup Contracting!
