“If you service the customer in the correct manner, you will always have repeat business.”    - Babylon Schoniwitz

property in hawaii is a major investment.  to protect that investment, it is important to maintain it.  that means hiring the painting company that has been providing expert quality workmanship since 1989: Babylon's painting & decorating, inc. 

Sure, anyone can “paint” a wall. There are dozens of brushes, rollers, and other products for the do-it-yourselfer on the market and, you can buy just about any color paint for any purpose at small hardware or big-box stores.  

However, painting a condo or townhome complex, a sprawling shopping center, a many-storied hi-rise, or a beachside estate, requires a specialized set of skills. If these buildings are on Oahu, they need the knowledge of experienced exterior-interior painters like Babylon’s to address the effects of Hawaii’s relentless sun, salt air, humidity and trade winds.

We love living in our Paradise, but we need experts like the team at Babylon’s Painting & Decorating. You can be assured that they will take care of the problems Hawaii’s climate causes, including mold, and cement spalls, as part of the preparation before they cover your walls with quality and color.

Make Babylon’s Painting & Decorating your choice for exterior or interior painting.

Thank you so much for the beautiful job that your company did on our home. I cannot tell you how impressed we were with your crew.
Our home, from start to finish, was completed in less than 2 days. On the first day, our home was thoroughly prepped (cleaned) for paint. The second day, our home was wrapped, painted, and all materials were packed and put away just after lunch. I found this timeline even more impressive when I noticed another home in our neighborhood had been wrapped for approximately 5 days and not completed in a timely manner. Their paint colors did not match their color scheme either which can turn into a very costly mistake. Our paint was color matched perfectly and we were given the opportunity to see it dry before we agreed to order the colors. This is very important when dealing with a HOA.
The crew was not only professional; they were kind to our children as well as our dog. They took the time to ensure they protected our outdoor furniture, our cars and neighbors cars, as well as our fence and plants. Everyone that showed up went above and beyond their scope of duties to get the job done.
One home particularly illustrates the attention to detail and concern for quality your company provided. Many neighbors stopped by during the painting process to compliment how the crew performed as well as how beautiful our home turned out. We even had knocks on our door days and believe it or not, weeks after it was completed asking the name of the company that we used because they heard about how well your crew worked from neighborhood friends.
I am so very pleased that we had the opportunity to work with you and your amazing crew. When we get our next notice to paint our home again, we will definitely choose Babylon Painting again.
Nicole and Ryan M.

This letter is to affirm that we are very satisfied with the exterior house painting performed by Babylon Painting and his crew at our residence.His team worked cohesively and professionally, and they accomplished a job well done. They were pleasant, respectful and friendly. They were careful in protecting our solar system and our landscaping, very knowledgeable in their field of expertise. Most importantly the price was affordable and we highly recommend them for their professional services. Our neighbors at Ocean Pointe where we live are also very satisfied of the work they did.

Thank you Babylon and crew, we appreciate your services.

Dear Babylon,

We are very pleased with the work your crew performed on our house. From preparation to final touch-ups, Junior and the gang were stellar. Kealohi Kai is a very strict community association and we would be shocked if they found any fault with the paint colors or the quality of your team's work. The house looks better than ever! And Babylon was able to offer us and our neighbors a group rate to obtain the lowest possible price while maintaining the highest standard of professionalism!

We were impressed with the way your crew was able to work around our three dogs without missing a beat. Each painter was kind and understanding about our situation and never complained. Having your painters around was hardly an inconvenience and when it came time to say goodbye, it was like sending off old friends. In addition to the paint crew, your administrative staff was very kind and flexible with us. No wonder Babylon's Painting has an A+ rating with the Better Business Bureau.

Babylon's Painting is the only painting company for us and we recommend them to all Oahu homeowners!

Dear Babylon,

I want you to know how delighted Carole and I are with the results of house painting you and your crew did on our home this month. I can think of no higher quality than what we got. At a competitive price, and within our budget.

I have worked with many contractors over 40 years and your work crew is among the most efficient I have engaged They arrived in a timely manner, did the prep and masking more completely then I would have thought possible. As a result, we have no messy areas. A remarkable effort on this old house.

You listened attentively to my concerns at the outset. Areas that needed special attention did get that attention. And you saw to that personally.

Junior, crew chief, a good leader, efficiently oversaw the other members who work as a team. This resulted in on time completion and as little disruption to our routine as possible. Junior also suggested an area for some additional preparation, which we very much appreciate. The result, of course, speaks for itself.

I can well recommend "Babylon" to anyone looking for professional painting work. We offer to talk to any of your future clients who want good residential paint work. They may call on me for more personal feedback.Or have a look at the finished product. 

 A good job, Babylon. Thanks.

Dear Babylon,

My wife and I are just writing to thank you for what a great job you did on our house. Before we decided on a painting company - we evaluated 6 different companies when we were "shopping" for a painting company, and we are very glad we selected your great team.

We are happy with your team for a lot of reasons, including:

  • The paint job was perfect. No matter how hard I checked, I couldn't find any spots where I felt we needed to have any additional caulking or painting. I used to work for a painting company myself, so I thought for sure I would find something — great job.
  • Your team were friendly and courteous, both to us and to our neighbors.
  • The neighbors cars were all covered - what an amazing sight when I stopped home to see how things were going (at least 9 neighbors had their cars covered in our cul de sac). Even though it was not likely any paint would have traveled so far, it really made them feel confident in your team's caring and consideration for not causing them any problems.
  • You and your staff were really great with a lot of surprises with fi.xing problems with our siding, the numbering on the house, and caulking.
  • Your planning was great, even with the rain taking out one day, you were able to keep to your schedule and did a terrific job.

Really appreciate you doing such a great job, for a reasonable price. Please let any future customers know I'd be happy to talk to them and give you guys a great reference.

Thanks again for doing such a nice job on our house.

  Mr. & Mrs. Devin A. & M'Liss M. // Waipahu
