David is a fantastic painter he was very clean and professional. Did a great job, at a very fair price.

-Zac F

“DFranco has been a wonderful company to work with. They really understand how important it is for us to have professional representation working with us. I was given quotes for my clients in a very timely manner and they have been fantastic with my clients. Each job has been treated with care and professionalism. I never hesitate to recommend them to clients or work with them directly.”

“I worked with Dave to come out and get some idea of cost, and he provided a free, itemized quote in writing, at a great price that made the decision easy. He was able to start work pretty quickly after that, but I found a few things that I hadn’t really thought about when originally scoping out the work. Dave rolled with the punches though, and provided additional quotes on the fly. Because of their flexibility, they were still able to finish on time, and at the quoted price.

The finished product was so much more than I thought it would be, too! Very clean and precise work, and they cleaned up every bit of their work before leaving. I was just left with a great, new livable room!”

“David is currently doing a bedroom in my home. I have been using this company for at least five years. Always very professional, always on time and very fair pricing. I have used them for general painting jobs to high end faux finishes, etc. David is very talented and always does an exceptional job.”

“Repair of a damaged section of a textured ceiling. We were afraid that it would be impossible to match since it was approx. 30 years old. Job was completed in a timely and neat fashion and even knowing where to look I have a very hard time to fine the edges of the repair.”

 “I had them paint many rooms in my in-laws’ house. Their attention to detail is GREAT!  No mess or hassle to deal with, they did everything. Pricing was fair and no hidden “surprises”. Highly recommend them for all my painting needs.”

“I am an interior Designer and have worked with D’Franco Finishes numerous times. They always do a great job, they move quickly so they are not interrupting your day or plans, and they are very accommodating.”


David is a great painter and is always willing to go above and beyond to make sure we are more then happy with his work.  He painted our x-ray room and it turned out amazing!  He also made us a frame for our light board from scratch that is just what we asked for and looks fantastic!  He hung up two large pictures and then came back and adjusted one for us as well.  He is always great with his communication and very professional.  I would recommend him to anyone and I would use his services personally in my own home.

Everything went well from beginning to end. The foyer looks great. We normally do painting ourselves within the house, but needed to get a professional painter for the foyer, both because the foyer is two stories and also because we needed some patching of drywall scratches. I found Dave Cook on Angie’s List and he was very professional from the first conversation on the phone. He gave us a very good quote and we scheduled the job. On the day of painting Dave arrived as promised and completed the job in one day. The necessary repairs on the drywall were done very well, and the quality of the painting was outstanding. I work from home, and Dave came in, did a great job, and then cleaned up in a very professional manner. I would definitely use his services again, and recommend Dave Cook and D’Franco Finishes for any painting jobs. Well done!

Dfranco was one of several bids I received for doing the work for our home painting. We needed painting following moving in to the home. Dfranco was higher than the other bids but I went with them anyway due to their contract, their warranty, the insurance they provided with the estimate, and the professionalism in which they conducted themselves. The service did not disappoint. On time, clean, did a few extras that was not on the list to do. All was clean when they left and faster than they had told us.  Will be sure to use them again.

-Nathan Hill

I was referred to David, so had him do a small job at my Parents home, we had already hired him for our office in Chicago. He was in and out Fast, on time and clean. My parents were happy as we are cleaning things up and getting the home ready to sell. Will have him back when we do the other rooms in need.

Once the drywall repairs were made David and crew came in and cleaned what dust and mess there was from the drywall company. They removed everyone else’s trash! The vac’d the floors before they started, then went to work on painting our 18″ walls, with one color then hanging wallpaper on several walls as accents.  Great job, finished before they were supposed to.

-Zach Hammond

Our Kitchen needed to be repainted so David came in and painted our kitchen ceilings and walls. The initial color we picked was too yellow for us so he was able to retint it on site to get us the color we wanted.  It was simple easy and clean. Retinting of the paint color we picked out.  Everything was masked off, drop cloths used, and clean when he left.

D’Franco Decorative Finishes did a wonderful job of installing the wall covering on our dining room ceiling (not as easy as you might think!) Dave and his assistant were prompt, professional and precise and neat!!! The also did a great job with some touch up painting.They were a pleasure to work with and I will certainly call them again for future projects!

-Mary Johannigman

I am getting ready to sell my house and needed a bit more then that fresh coat of paint. David and team came in and did a great job painting everything I needed which included a vaulted ceiling. In addition there was some wall corner repairs were the puppy (no longer) had chewed into the dry wall and an area in the ceiling that needed to be cut out and replaced. Very pleased with the end product!
