DFW’s Honest-To-A-Fault Painting Contractor

We’re Proud To Be The DFW’s Relentlessly
Honest Home Improvement Company

One Homeowner Knew We Were The Painters For Him When
We Told Him His Wallpaper Was “The Ugliest We’d Seen.”


Nobody likes an aggressive salesman when they’re just trying to get an honest price quote on a new roof or an interior painting project. Unfortunately, the arm-twisting, tell-you-what-you-want-to-hear contractors outnumber the honest ones in DFW.

Luckily, we don’t mind being different.

At Phillips, we give you ultra-specific–and-ACCURATE–written proposals on every project. We also tell you the truth, the whole truth, and nothing but.

For this homeowner, it was our total and complete honesty that made all the difference.

A Great Review That Also Made Us Laugh

“Finding a Painter 101: Trying to find a painting company without being taken advantage of is no small task these days!

Was Phillips the cheapest? No. Were they the most expensive? No. But, they were the only ones who showed up when they said they would and provided a detailed list of work and an exact price.

Previous painters didn’t cover the full scope of work and provided “about” or “around” price quotes. Phillips covered the complete scope of work with every required step and gave us an exact price for the job.

Our rep was friendly, professional and honest (said; “we had the ugliest wallpaper he’d ever seen”) and that’s why we hired Phillips.

The price was fair, the explanation of work required was detailed, and the timeframe was reasonable. Sometimes, things are too good to be true or you’re left thinking “well I guess I got what I paid for” or you just paid too much. Phillips strikes us as none of those things!

They’re a local business that understands longevity is only achieved through quality of services and honest value.

Makes sense why they’ve been around for over 25 years with the same owner! We’re looking forward to posting photos once the work is done and showing why we made the right choice and you should too!”

We’ll Never Give You “Around” Our “About” Price
Quotes–Only Accurate Written Proposals

Of the many things we loved about this review (thanks, Moe), one comment that stuck out was that we didn’t offer “about” or “around” price quotes.

For us honesty is about more than just telling the truth. It’s also about getting all your ducks in a row BEFORE you make a promise to a client or give them a price.

As tempting as it is to tell someone what they want to hear, it’s WAY better in the long run to give them the actual facts about their roof installation, gutters, or interior painting project.

That’s why we always give our clients the truth: the good, the bad, and the ugly. It’s also why we offer detailed, Accurate Written Proposals, instead of the usual flimsy price quotes.

Honesty Can Be Awkward, But It Shows CHARACTER

While we don’t make a point of telling our clients they have ugly wallpaper, we’re not going to sugarcoat what we have to say.

If we find serious wood rot beneath your siding or termites in your wall, we WILL tell you. A lot of other contractors simply caulk over the damage and move on with their day.

That may be easier in the short term–for THEM–but it’s going to cost you MASSIVE amounts of money down the line.

At the end of the day, it goes against our character and our Phillips TEAMily Core Values to ever give the DFW homeowners we serve anything but our total honesty.

That–maybe above all else–is what sets Phillips Home Improvements apart.

We know what our clients deserve, so we refuse to give them anything less than the best. It’s how we’d treat our own family, and how we’d want OUR loved one’s to be treated.
