As with the project at 170 Alpine Terrace, this Castro home also had been stripped of all of it's charming architectural details long ago: siding was covered with asbestos shingles, the decorative columns, brackets, dentil, plasterwork - all gone...
The homeowner saw 2 other recent Modamas projects (including the one on 170 Alpine Terrace and 181 Noe,) and came to Modamas requesting that we help restore his home as well.
Modamas is proud to partner with a unique team of carpenters, plaster restoration experts and other trades that allow us to achieve far more than just a "paint-job." Working together, we transformed this little home into another beauty on the block.
Over the years, our clients and word-of-mouth referrals have proven to be a huge source of our success.
We offer our thanks to all of our satisfied and repeat clients!

These guys did an amazing job on our old San Francisco Building.
John was great in getting this project started and put my mind at ease.
Nelson was the foreman painter and took care of all the details on the job.
Started sooner than their projected start date and the project moved along just as they stated it would.
Very professional and would definitely use this company again. Thanks for making our building look great!

We never expected painting our 2-unit Edwardian would be as simple as it was.
From the initial meeting with Jeff Johnston, one of the principals, for the estimate to Rick Kennan, project manager, executing the project with his team, everything was seamless. They listened to us, made solid recommendations, were extremely responsive and focused on making us happy--and they exceeded our expectations.
Our building had been stripped of all its original details decades ago and Modamas recommended a great carpenter to design and complete that work. A company we would consider premium,
Modamas' pricing was very fair and absolutely worth it. We'll be back in 10-15 years!
We couldn't be happier. J.P.S. SF, CA 11/28/15
Don't even think about using anyone but Modamas!
We are a general contracting company mainly working in Marin and we were in need of a very fine painter for a very high-end project of ours in SF. Modamas came on recommendation and we were thrilled at the quality of work, the professionalism and communication.
We can now recommend Modamas highly and do - you will not be disappointed.

Modamas Painting did a fine job on our Victorian house.
Our house looks absolutely beautiful after Modamas painted it so well and carefully.
The painting crew (Nelson, Oskar and Horacio) was always polite and professional. It's hard to live around house painters but these guys made it less painful for us.
John, the project manager was great to work with and always responsive to our questions and kept abreast of the schedule.
We highly recommend Modamas Painting.

Modamas painted our building last week and did a fantastic job, despite the fact the place hadn't been painted properly in 35 years.
I went into the process with some trepidation, thinking that the facade and lightwells were in such poor condition that they wouldn't accept a fresh coat.
To guard against this problem, Modamas gave every surface a full prime after sanding, then applied two color coats, including caulking.
Throughout the fairly involved job, Raleigh, the supervisor and troubleshooter, communicated clearly with us about every detail and made sure his team took care of every item on the list.
At the end of each day, the place was cleaned and the tools stored properly in the basement, and the crew was polite and careful in their work.
Also, the job was completed at the quoted price and on time, and I would recommend them very highly to anyone in the city.

I was once told if you find a really good painter, hold onto them as they are hard to find.
Modamas was wonderful to work with, from John who helped with the quote/logistics to Zhong the painter, who is as professional as they come.
I was in awe of his talent. I couldn't find anything he did that was less than perfect.
In addition, he was very responsive to any requests I had and super professional - he arrived every day at the exact same time, worked steadfastly all day for many days in a row and just did his craft as best he could, which was better than any I've worked with before.
I couldn't be happier with the results. Our place looks beautiful as a result.
Thank you John and Zhong!

I worked with Raleigh Thompson. He and his crew did an amazing job on our building. He took an ugly ducking, and turned it into a shining star! The communication was very good throughout the process. Raleigh responded to my questions promptly (same day), by text or e-mail. He regularly sent pictures of progress. He went above and beyond with caulking, repair and primer. The team really took pride, and the building looks amazing. I recommend Modamas for your painting job.

I am a property manager for the large three unit condo building in the SF Richmond district. Jeff came out to give me an estimate that was bit complicated because the bylaws provide that each condo owner is responsible for paying for their restricted areas. Out of the many painting estimates requested, Modamas was the only company that detailed out the costs as requested.
Also, new roofing, gutters, and scaffolding needed to be coordinated prior to getting the painting done. Jeff was easy, flexible and coordinated well with the other contractors.
In addition to the painting, severals areas of the building needed repair and it was done well and reasonably priced by Norbeth and his team. Norbeth even provided new hardware for a new door without charging us. Norbeth's team accidentally prepped an area of the building that was not in the scope of the project, but they fixed the problem by completely painting that area without charge.
Jeff and Norbeth communicated very well with me and with the tenants of the building making sure that everyone knew what to do, resulting in no complaints and a really BEUTIFULLY painted buidling. They are the BEST!
