I highly recommend him!
Erickson and Sons Quality Painting (added 25FEB13) Trabuco Canyon (949) 858-9814 Don Stewart (Rincon) Dan Erickson is the best painter I have known. He did a much better job of painting our house than other painters we've used before.

Dan painted our kitchen cabinets and selected portions of the exterior. When
asked to quote on the exterior he said only weathered portions of the
exterior required painting.  

Dan is neat, well organized, articulate [Cal
State Northridge graduate], well equipped [highest pressure washer I've seen], spends most of his time preparing the surfaces, covered areas that previous painters should have been concerned with, brought up problem areas as soon as they appeared [like the excessive dry rot on the pergola cross beams that we largely removed], works alone [most helpers don't meet his standards], works well on roofs [spent lots of time on the roof making wood repairs prior to painting].  

Did an outstanding job on our French doors that required much more preparation than they'd been given the prior times they were painted and on the kitchen cabinets.

O'Corra Termite & Construction (Updated 22SEP15) Mission Viejo (949) 413-4622  Weinstein (Vispera) THIS IS NOT A RECOMMENDATION. THIS IS A WARNING NOT TO USE THIS VENDOR.

He does not complete his jobs. I hired Joe to do some wood repair on my house in February 2013. He was paid upfront (big mistake) and told me it was around a 5-7 day job. Well, it's now three month later and the job is half finished. Lots of excuses and promises and no shows. I don't know how he stays in business if he doesn’t finish jobs. Probably why his bids look so good - he doesn’t do the work! Be forewarned and stay away from this guy. He's a nice guy but he does not do the work.
