Iraj is meticulous and patient as the details of the project are considered, whether the project is big or small . When the project is underway, he couldn't be better at communicating about issues that arise and working them out.

Dear Iraj and Bainbridge Paint & Design,
We would like to thank you for all the work you have done on our home in the past two years. From the initial project of remodeling our bathroom, to installing new windows, and finally to repairing and replacing siding and painting our home; all of these have been done by teams of professionals who have gone above and beyond our expectations in updating our home. One thing that has stood out to us is the high praise that all the workers have for Iraj. We have askedthem if they like working for you and what makes you unique. We consistently hear that you respect them and they appreciate the way you work with the homeowners to resolve any issues and to make sure that everything is in order so that they are able to work steadily and not have down time. We have observed how you show up at the site multiple times a day to make sure that workers or homeowners don’t have questions and materials are available. You are easy to contact whenever we have a question or concern. We also appreciate the design ideas that you have given us. One specific instance was when the workers discovered dry rot on our homes exterior. You gave us options in a couple price ranges that enabled us to decide what best fit within our budget and timeline. Another example is helping with color choices and ways to improve the look of our home.These are just some of the reasons we would highly recommend Bainbridge Paint & Design to others who are looking for reasonable priced, quality work. We look forward to working with you again on our next bathroom remodel.
Thank you,

We recently purchased a house in Rolling Bay. We were referred to Bainbridge Paint & Design, and were pleased with every aspect of their work: communications (including responsiveness and explanations of the work to be done); the quality of the painting and materials used; their completion on a very tight schedule; and the fees we paid. I also learned that the company works as contractors in other home design and repair areas, and we used and will again use extra services. I recommend Iraj, and would add that all members of the team were good, qualified workers.

After calling multiple companies, and having two assessments onsite, it was easy to make the call that Bainbridge Paint & Design was right for the job. The level of professionalism, the quick response, the honest assessment, and then most importantly the high quality of the workmanship exceeded our expectations. They will always be the first ones we call for all painting projects.
Thank you, Iraj.

We used Iraj for some concrete work around our entry door, some light construction building handrails for our decking, as well as the replacement of our entry door, side door, and a number of internal doors. Iraj was very professional. He communicated very clearly with us and did a nice job managing our expectations. His crews were friendly, reliable and they did nice work.

I wanted to take a moment to write a review of a really exceptional company: Bainbridge Paint & Design. My wife and I bought a house recently that needed work; as we looked around for contractors, Bainbridge Paint & Design came highly recommended. They painted about 2000 sq feet on the inside of our house and then a month later remodeled our kitchen. I'm a former builder and used to do finish work, including kitchen remodels, so I have a very high bar. Bainbridge Paint & Design was everything I could have hoped for and more. The owner, Iraj Ashabi, and his crew are incredibly conscientious and respectful as well as being exceptional builders. They communicated proactively at every step of the project and I always knew what was coming next. When there were issues that needed my attention I heard about them right away and was able to resolve them quickly. They remodeled our kitchen on a very aggressive schedule (just over three weeks) in time for Thanksgiving and drove the project to completion despite a few setbacks outside of their control. I can't say enough about them - my only hesitation in writing this review is that it could be harder for me to schedule them for future work ;) Really amazing company!

Iraj and his crew absolutely transformed our newly purchased house into exactly what we wanted. From a dated, early 90s style to something much more modern, fresh and open, the house underwent a dramatic makeover in a matter of weeks. Our project included a completely new kitchen, new flooring throughout the house, all the window trim and baseboards were replaced, every surface was painted and windows and doors were added and replaced. The quality of the work was excellent, the timeliness of the project was amazing and the guidance provided was very helpful. Everyone on Iraj's team was great to work with and I would have no hesitations in recommending Bainbridge Paint and Design to friends and family.

I highly recommend Iraj and Bainbridge Pain and Design. We have used the company for two projects and for both projects Iraj and his crew were efficient, professional, courteous, and knowledgeable. They are very easy to work with and I look forward to working with them again on any other projects we have in the future.

Without hesitation, we strongly recommend Bainbridge Paint and Design. Iraj is truly a hands-on business owner, who personally oversees his company's work throughout the process. He responds promptly to any questions along the way, and takes the time to explain the work being done. Now that the exterior paint job is finished, we look forward to working with Bainbridge Paint and Design in the future on other home remodeling projects.

Thank you Iraj and the team from Bainbridge Paint and Design for doing such a fantastic job painting our house. Iraj is an excellent communicator and is passionate about the quality of his company's work. His team is courteous and hard working. Look no further, Bainbridge Paint and Design is the company you should hire. Our house looks new again!

We couldn't have been happier with Iraj and his crew. We had several projects with him, including our whole house exterior being painted, exterior siding replacement, and a gate on our deck. Regardless of the size of the project, Iraj and his team were always there when they said they would be, and the job was completed on budget and by the estimated completion date - not to mention with a high level of quality! One of the things that really sets Iraj apart is his regular involvement/quality control of his team's work. He makes sure to be onsite at some point every day to see how things are going, and often do a lot of the work himself. He has very high standards for himself and his team, and the resulting product definitely represents this! He even helped us with our color selection for our house (as we kept going back and forth on this). We wouldn't hesitate to use Iraj in the future, and I highly recommend him for all your painting and general contracting needs!

Iraj and his team did an outstanding job painting the exterior of my house. I selected Iraj's company because Iraj listened to my needs, was able to offer ideas and options, was always courteous and responsive, and aside from all that - he's just a super nice guy! His whole team were so respectful while working hard to get the house done in just a short period of time, yet with high quality results. Thank you to Iraj and his team.

Iraj came highly recommended by our neighbor, and when he came by to assess the job, my husband and I liked him right away. He was prompt and returned my calls immediately. It was a pleasure to work with him because he addressed all of our concerns throughout the entire project. He was flexible when we wanted to make changes and gave us cost effective options without sacrificing quality. His team arrived on time, worked diligently and were very respectful of our space. The end result exceeded our expectations. Our new staircase and wood floors turned out absolutely beautiful. We will definitely be calling Iraj for all of our future projects.

Josh & Michele Gage

Iraj was recommended to us by a friend and, after meeting him, we found no need to look for further quotes as he met all our needs concerning time, cost and efficiency. We were looking at an extensive painting project within our home and needed it done before company and the holidays. I am happy to say that the project is complete and we are more than pleased with the end results, as well as the helpful suggestions in choosing paint type and colors. The crew was professional and prompt - all of which is appreciated when your home is in disarray for two days. Of course we will use Bainbridge Paint and Design as needed in the future and have already recommended him to our friends.

Bainbridge Paint and Design was recommend to my husband and I from a satisfied neighbor. We had always intended to install tile in our master bath shower and paint our high ceiling living room and master bedroom but had been left on the to-do list for years. The team from Bainbridge Paint and Design was super easy to work with and have in our home. There was a good exchange of ideas and solutions to what we wanted to accomplish. We are very happy with the finished results.

We recently had the exterior of our home painted by Iraj Ashabi and his Bainbridge Paint and Design crew. From the first contact during the in depth evaluation of the job my husband and I were quite impressed with his professionalism and knowledge. Throughout the project Iraj had helpful suggestions on color and design, as well as maintenance that needed attention. A very important aspect of the job was his skilled, polite and engaging crew. Each was pleasant to have around and had a diligent work ethic - arriving between 8 and 8:30am and frequently staying until 5 or 6 pm.

Iraj is great to work with and follows through efficiently. We are delighted with the completed work and glad to have found our "go to" team whenever we need painting, inside or out!

Iraj, thanks again for an excellent job staining my log house. The house really needed the attention and you and your crew knew what to do. I was very impressed with the quality, and especially with the careful finishing of the project right through the clean up. I felt like you made the extra effort to deliver an excellent job. Your customer care and service is first class. I will definitely call you next time.

Thanks again for the superb job on my recent deck remodel. I was thrilled to have my idea come to life. everything including concrete pads, framing, cedar decking and finishing was of the highest craftsmanship. the crew was professional, courteous and punctual. In addition, your customer service was outstanding...always available, eager to please, and very helpful. I will call you immediately for any future project around my home.

I am writing this reference for Iraj Ashabi and Bainbridge Paint & Design. I have known Iraj for several years and met him through a friend's referral. He and his company painted the exterior of my house as well as the interior of my addition. As a former General Contractor and builder, I can personally say that the job they did exceeded my expectations. My house is 100% cedar shakes and highly trimmed, not easy to paint. It takes a craftsman to make it look amazing and Bainbridge Paint certainly achieved that.Iraj's expertise in choosing what kind and color of stain was extremely helpful and right on. As a result, my house still looks gorgeous and brand new today.

There is a saying that is used in the building world: You want to have quality, schedule, and budget, but you can only have two of the three. Iraj provides all three every time. Iraj's guys showed up on time,got done early, were extrmely professional, and did the highest quality work possible. Iraj managed cost with precision and conscientiousness.

Iraj is also very connected and eager to help in any way. He helped with other scopes of work that were unrelated to the base project at a moment's notice. When an electrical issue arose, Iraj was able to call someone and have them at my house in short order.

In conclusion, I would highly recommend Iraj. I would hire him again without hesitation and trust him without regard.

The one thing that sets Iraj apart from all other contractors on Bainbridge Island or anywhere else is that he actually loses money because he’s such an advocate for his clients. He can’t seem to help but to constantly look for solutions that will save the customer money. He’d rather have a happy customer who has saved money and is thrilled about it than more money in his own pocket. This is UNHEARD of in this industry- especially in this economy. Bainbridge Paint and Design, Bainbridge Remodeling Group and Iraj Ashabi—the guy who built them from the ground up are Bainbridge Island GEMS. I don’t think he’s ever had to advertise—his customers do all the talking.

Bainbridge Paint and Design has done great work for us. I started out looking for a company to power-wash and re-stain our deck. Iraj, the owner, was able to come over without delay. We got a good feeling from him immediately. He was professional, courteous, and knowledgeable. I quickly came to understand that the scope of his expertise goes far beyond painting and deck refinishing. We have a patio underneath our deck that we wanted to be a dry space, so Iraj's company installed a roof system under the deck. This was in late Summer of 2013. It is now nearing the end of Winter, and we continue to be happy with the work that was done. Iraj was unfailingly patient in answering our many questions leading up to this installation. He called back almost immediately if we left a message, even from out of town, even during the week-end. The deck staining needed to wait until Spring, because of the weather last Fall. I'm happy they didn't push to do the job when the conditions weren't right. In addition we had a few minor repairs needed inside the house, and they did a great job with those as well. We won't hesitate to call Iraj about other projects in the future.

Iraj Ashabi and his crew painted the exterior of our house and did a great job. They were very thorough, replacing boards and posts that were damaged as part of the prep work. They painted all the detail, including areas that are not visible from the outside. Most importantly, they were prompt, clean, polite, and happy while they worked. They are very professional.

Bainbridge Paint and Design is where you can go for any of your remodeling and painting needs. We have used them several times They painted the interior of our home and then they not only painted, but repaired and remodeled several rentals that we had. Each time we were extremely happy with the work that Iraj and his team did. They were always on time, usually got the job done ahead of time and I dont' think that there is much that they can't do. If you are thinking of doing ANY work on your home, Bainbridge Paint and Design are the ones to call!

Sandy Griffin

I hired Iraj and his crew to paint my house, and I'm so glad I did. Not only did he do a fantastic job with the painting, doing it quickly and professionally, but he and his crew were also super nice to work with. He was always available to answer my questions, and he is a genuinely nice guy. I went on to hire him to build new porch railings and a new deck for my barbecue, and soon he'll be tackling my kitchen remodel. All of his work has been top notch. Highly recommended!

When we bought a home on Bainbridge Island and decided to remodel it while still living out-of-state, we were not sure how this was going to be possible. Iraj was in constant communication with photos, texts, and phone calls to make decision-making possible and easy. We were able to get a tremendous amount of painting done in a relatively short amount of time. Iraj also helped coordinate other projects including cabinets, tile, and electrical.

We chose Bainbridge Paint and Design to paint the exterior of our house and we were very pleased with them. Incredible work ethic, beautiful to work with, brilliant aesthetic sense, fabulous job done on time and budget, one of my all time favorite house project experiences. When talking to Iraj, I found that he does more than just painting-- he is a general contractor--so I asked him if his carpenter can replace two exterior doors (the front door and the door to the back porch). I ordered two beautiful Dutch doors which were installed and painted by his crew. We look forward to working with Bainbridge Paint and Design in the future.

I can not say enough in support of Bainbridge Paint & Design. They were great help in choosing colors for my house and suggesting trim details. They prepped my house in detail, the job site was clean and the job completed on time and budget. I have recommended them to friends and can't wait to bring them back for an interior project in the future.
Thank you Iraj!

BP&D did a great job on painting our children’s rooms. Iraj was very patient as he helped us select colors, and then when working out the details of making a chalkboard wall – not as easy as we thought! His crew also did a wonderful job doing a spring cleaning on our yard, clearing up leaf debris, weeding the beds, and then laying compost. It looked like a postcard when they finished. We plan to ask Iraj’s crew to come back this spring, and to stain our house for us this summer.

Iraj and his team at Bainbridge Paint & Design took care of painting the whole first floor of our new house last month and we could not be happier. He guided us on color choices, gave us lots of helpful information about our options, and suggested future improvements. When our carpet installation date changed, he managed to work around our new schedule with grace. We had to make a lot of decisions quickly and having Iraj's expert, knowledgeable advice made things so much easier. He's the first person we'll call when we're ready for the next project!

Evelyn W.

We are so relieved to have hired Iraj and his team! Last year, we had them repaint our house trim, power wash our ironwood deck and railing, wash our metal roof, and replace (and improve!) the ventilation screening on the soffits of our two-story house. We were so satisfied that this year we invited them back to install a closet, repaint rooms, build cabinets in the mudroom, install a light fixture, and do other fine-tuning needed by a 15-year-old house.

Iraj wants the client to be happy, so he doesn't hesitate to offer us cost-effective ideas for better results. We appreciate his meticulous, conscientious workers. During a project, Iraj remains involved with frequent on-site visits to assure that we're satisfied and that the workers have what they need to do their best and stay on schedule. The quality of their work and communication have earned our loyalty. Iraj and his team score tops for value, honesty, and reliability. We don't need Angie's list – we have Iraj on speed dial instead!

We have had the great pleasure of having Iraj help us with the countless jobs – large and small – leading up to the sale of our home. What started out as a handyman job repairing our porch, quickly ended up with us relying on Iraj to get anything done. From carpentry to interior / exterior painting – and even house cleaning services – we never had the occasion to complain or wait on the job getting done well and on-time. We came to trust Iraj and his crew implicitly and we wouldn't hesitate to recommend Bainbridge Paint & Design for any job.

Iraj has renewed my trust in contractors. Not only are he and his team professional, but also most pleasant to work with. They are efficient, and the work is meticulously done--they attend to every little detail. What's even nicer is that they seem to enjoy what they're doing, and made me feel that my house was their primary concern. Iraj is a skilled director, who offers an outstanding service, and all this at a reasonable price.

My husband and I own a large house with a massive amount of decorative trim. When we needed to have it painted, we chose Iraj Ashabi and Bainbridge Paint and Design.

Iraj was extremely helpful with choosing colors and overall planning. The painting crew were skilled, neat, courteous, and finished quickly despite the intricate nature of the job.

We are very pleased with the work and would be happy to recommend Bainbridge Paint and Design.

Holly & Harvey Kahn

Bainbridge Paint and Design painted the wood trim on my house on Bainbridge. They did a great job, and, when it turned out that the entire back patio was collapsing because it had not been constructed properly, rebuilt the patio for a very reasonable price. I liked this work so much that I had them retile my master shower, and again the work done was carefully done and looks exactly like I wanted. I recommend Iraj and his company for any job like these. You may call me, Robert Whitley, at (206) 780-3092 if you need more information.

We came to Bainbridge Island last year not knowing anyone here. Iraj was hired by my wife for an extensive remodeling project. This included repainting, adding shelving to the living room, re-doing the bathroom, adding a partition to one of the bath rooms, changing the French doors, adding a pocket door and staining the decks. Iraj demonstrated a great level of professionalism and was very helpful and instructive in suggesting solutions that were both very economical and useful. He has a great ability to visualize the finished product and implement his innovations to the house. We have been very happy with the result as he has made our house a home we love.

I recommend Iraj with no hesitation for any size project in home improvement. His insight and attention to customer needs is unmatched.

The walls of our new 3500 SFT office were light cream and way too bland for our fast paced, high growth technology company. It’s truly amazing how color and light affect the mood of our work force and Iraj alerted us to these truths offering design and color suggestions that created a space awash in vibrant color. His work not only elevated the mood of the staff, but as Iraj told us would happen, it showed my team I cared about the quality of their work environment. I’m not sure if it was the paint, or the positive energy, but his professional approach and clean precise work made this a great business transaction.

Iraj is great! He has an excellent design sense, and is friendly and professional every every step of the way.I especially appreciated how he customized the work he did for me, suggesting a different approach or treatment when appropriate. And the results are wonderful. Did I mention that he is fast and reasonably priced,too?

Nancy Baran

We have known Iraj for many years, and have often admired the work he has done on his own home. He is very skilled and truly a perfectionist. When we needed to paint our house, I didn't need to think hard about who to hire. Iraj was prompt, professional, extremely reasonable in cost, and he hires great guys. The guys were always here when they said they would be, they were really good painters, cleaned up before they left every day, and made the process really easy for us. I'm already thinking about the next project that Iraj could help us with!
Thank you!

I'd like to recommend Bainbridge Paint, the people that built my deck. I was recommended them by Shelly and Scott as they built and painted their deck and house. I am very pleased with them and their work. I compared 4 options before deciding on them and found that their separation of cost of materials and labor, their positive and flexible attitudes (my schedule, my design, etc). Good prices, good quality work were at the top of the list as well.

We highly recommend Bainbridge Paint and Design. Iraj Ashabi's project management skills are extremely professional and his design sense proved very helpful concerning the color scheme and overall appearance of our home.

His team was meticulous concerning detail, they came on time and creatively dealt with any problems that arose. They were polite, courteous, and thoroughly professional. We will definitely use Bainbridge Paint and Design again in the future.

Their finished product not only preserves our house, but enhances the aesthetics of its overall appearance.
Thank you Iraj!

We originally called Iraj about painting a TV room we were remodeling. Turns out he does that and more! His crew repaired the walls that were damaged after cabinets were removed, painted the walls and installed new hardwood floors. They did such a great job painting, you can't tell where the new paint ends and the old begins. He and his crew were professional, arrived on time and kept things clean. As a mother with 2 small boys keeping the house clean is important. I can't say enough good things about Iraj and look forward to his help with our next project, painting the exterior of our house.

Teri Jo B.

I called Iraj to give me a few estimates for various projects around the house and chose two projects for completion-- painting the the master bathroom and the front door andinsulatingthe basement. I've known Iraj for years, he is a perfectionist and anything he does or supervises is beautifully done. He was able to do both my jobs in two short days and at a very reasonable price. In addition, Iraj was able to advise me on unrelated work in the basement - what to do and how to do it efficiently yet inexpensively (which he also accomplished). The men he employs are great workers and easy to have around, the clean up was perfect, and I can't wait to have them all back for more work. Iraj does not advertise....he is the best kept secret on Bainbridge Island for anything related to the home. I recommend him highly and without hesitation.

We were just on Bainbridge staying at the house for "spring break" and I have to tell you that I honestly was thrilled with the job you and your crew did with painting the interior of our new home and finishing out the garage. It was the first thing that I noticed when I walked in the home. The walls and lines were so clean it was such a welcome relief for me being that we pretty much did everything over the phone and email. I can't say enough about how professional you and your crew are. Our questions were answered promptly and thoroughly even though we had to work around two or three time zonessometimes I wondered if you ever sleep! I felt that you offered options to us during our initial walk through, solutions when there were strange things that popped up and opinions when we really needed them. It was wonderful to work with you and we look forward to using you again in the future.

We just had Iraj's team over to do some basic landscaping, power wash our back deck, and install a threshold in our home. He is really, really fantastic, fair price and just an all around fantastic guy and great communicator! Although he specializes in painting, his team can do anything! If you have any home projects to do, definitely give him a call to come out and give you an estimate!

I would highly recommend Iraj's company, Bainbridge Paint & Design for your next project. He and his capable crew painted our kitchen, bedroom and two bathrooms, replaced and painted the baseboards and the door trim, all in record time doing quality work with careful attention to detail.

Iraj and his team do excellent work. They managed an elaborate bathroom repair/remodel project in our home with speed and efficiency. Iraj and his guys show up when they say they're going to, they're courteous and professional and do a great job. We couldn't be happier with the work they did for us.

We initially called Iraj for some window cleaning. His team showed up on time and did an amazing job. We were sufficiently impressed that we hired them for some home maintenance/repair projects, as well: gutter installation, bathroom repair work and a ceiling fan/heater install. All of those jobs were accomplished in a similarly professional fashion. I would gladly recommend Iraj and his team to any homeowner or business owner on the island.

We hired Iraj and his team for some interior painting and quickly discovered what a gem we had found. Since then weve hired him for exterior painting, carpentry projects, and a variety of odds & ends. Iraj frequently offered good advice for helping us keep costs to a minimum and for finding alternative ways to do things. Iraj worked hard to get our jobs scheduled promptly and communicated well when timelines needed to change because of weather or other situations which invariably come up during large projects. Were keeping a running list of future projects to hire this team again!!

It was a delight working with Iraj and his team. From the very beginning he was able to quickly understand what we wanted to accomplish with our exterior staining and painting project, and he brought some welcome ideas that we hadn't considered. Usually a project of this size is disruptive and unpleasant, but Iraj and his team worked hard to make it easy for all of us. His work was outstanding, and he finished on-time and on-budget. We were delighted with the process and the results, and we would happily work with him on any future projects.

The previous fantastic reviews on Island Moms were absolutely correct! We hired Iraj and his team to do some interior painting in our new home. He called back to confirm our first appointment very promptly, and the work was started within a day or two. They did such a beautiful job (and the pricing great) that we added a few other things, including some repair work and exterior painting...all of which was done extremely quickly. Iraj and his crew are thoughtful, courteous and enjoyableand Iraj has a wonderful eye for color and composition. I would highly recommend them for painting (as the name implies), but I understand they do some remodeling work, exterior decks, etc. If you have a project, I'd definitely give Iraj a call to discuss it.

Bainbridge Paint and Design has surpassed our wildest expectations. Iraj and the crew are polite, friendly, and always on time. The prices and the value are unbeatable and the quality is outstanding! If you are looking for a contractor who hangs around at the workplace sipping coffee, Iraj is not the one for you. He is very hands-on and works side by side with his crew. He also took his own time to offer his ideas by bringing books and magazines to help us figure out exactly what we wanted. Iraj listened carefully to our questions and it definitely shows in the work. We used their painting services in our previous house as well as our new one. I highly recommend Bainbridge Paint and Design to anyone looking for high quality, very fair prices, and an easy person to work with.

Bainbridge Paint and Design recently completed interior painting as well as some other work on our home. We were very pleased with the craftsmanship and the personal touches Iraj and his crew brought to our home.Iraj coordinated all other contractors needed to complete our project.Being relatively new to the island, we are thrilled to have found someone we can trust to help problem solve, plan, organize and execute any and all future TLC our home may need. In the short time since our interior project completion, Iraj has taken care of some landscaping needs as well as gutter cleaning for us. All projects were completed in a timely fashion and for a fair price. By the time Iraj and his crew were finished working for us we felt like we were working with friends. We will have to find more projects since we miss having them around!

I'm so happy to have found Iraj through the Islandmoms group. I had never heard of him before but it turns out that he has painted many homes here on the island some of whom I know. The same day I contacted Iraj, he was able to come over to give me an estimate. He even gave me a courtesy call when he was running late. Once he toured the rooms, it only took him a day to get back to me with his quote. And compared to the other 2 quotes I received, his was extremely reasonable. To my surprise, he was able to start right away and even when I squeezed in additional rooms to paint, he was able to work it into his schedule and make it happen.

Iraj has a gracious manner about him and is very personable which made working with him so easy. I was thrilled with the results but what really impressed me was the respect Iraj and Victor showed like removing their shoes when entering my house - even during set-up that required making several trips back and forth to their van. I dont even do that!

Iraj has a distinct eye for color and style he suggested a color for my boys' bedroom and it came out the way I didnt even know I wanted!

The team at Winslow Paint knows him well and I can tell they have a comfortable rapport with one another. Iraj's friendliness extended to even my dog when he shared a sample of the dog food he uses.

Thank you Iraj for your beautiful work. Not only did I find an excellent painter, but also found someone who is part of my community.

We couldn't have been happier with Bainbridge Paint & Design. They allowed us the assurances of the paint quality we were comfortable with and happily worked with it. The team is terrific; they've been working together a long time and their sequencing and coordination of work is amazing. The quality of work for all of the fine details we were seeking exceeded our expectations. The crew was always timely and worked long hours to get the job done quickly, but thoroughly. Clean up was also picture perfect. We can't wait for them to help us repaint the inside of our home.

We were thinking about painting our house and fortunately contacted Iraj of Bainbridge Island Paint and Design. He and Victor showed up to do an estimate and it turns out our kids had been in preschool together 10 years earlier. With the estimate being very fair, Iraj's professional attitude and the company's great record we certainly contracted them. It was a pleasure having them do the work. It was done in the amount of work days predicted with power washing, caulking, priming, two coats painting, three colors with accenting. His painters are very efficient, quiet and courteous. The job site was kept clean and organized. They even found a few wood rot sections which were then repaired by my carpenter. Iraj is also very good at color selection and coordinating, helping us make the final selections. The job turned out great! Our house looks brand new and we're constantly complimented by neighbors walking by. Thanks again Iraj and crew. We will gladly recommend you to anyone for their painting project.

I first contacted Iraj and Bainbridge Paint & Design because he was referred to me by another one of his highly satisfied customers at the Country Club of Seattle. Iraj has surpassed all expectations. He has done interior and exterior painting, pressure washing , moving furniture, indoor and outdoor cleaning prior to and after events. He has even assisted coordinating moves and cable installers. How did I know he would do all of these things? Because I asked him. He always answers his phone and he is very customer service oriented. Iraj always makes me feel as if I am his only client, even though I know he is the busiest man on the Island. If there is anything needing to be done, from building a room, installing hardwood floors, to house cleaning he has the crew to get the job done right. Iraj is always present if not working with the crew to make sure they are meeting the high standards he sets. The pricing is very fair and the service always exceeds all expectations.
Sincerely,

Iraj and his team did a great job painting the interiors of my house as well as refinishing my doors, windows and deck. They were professional, pleasant to work with and the results were great. I highly recommend them to anyone who is looking for a quality job.

This recommendation appeared on the Island Moms Forum

It is a long story but we had planned on using another contractor to do a lot of projects in our home (including painting the exterior of our house) and he got stuck on another job that just kept going...so we found ourselves looking for someone to paint our house in a very short amount of time.

I solicited recommendations on "Island Moms" and got a lot of recommendations but I am so....thankful that out of everyone I contacted IRAJ at Bainbridge Paint and Design was the first person to call me back.

That was the first thing that impressed me! Within minutes of me emailing him he called me back, talked to me over the phone and set up a time that very day to come by and look at our house. I believe that night he called us again with a quote and told us that there were 3 homes in front of us but that he would definitely be able to get the work done in the next month in time for our BBQ!

We were pleasantly surprised when we received another call from Iraj saying that he was able to move his schedule around and that he would be able to start our house the following week!

YEAH! They are done! Monday , Tuesday and Wednesday of this week Iraj and his crew worked each day 7:30am to 7:30pm to get our home done!

We are extremely happy with the results! Iraj and his crew take great pride in their work and are very meticulous with details. Iraj makes you feel very comfortable and confident, keeping you informed the whole way, answering any questions you might have and giving suggestions.

We are tremendously lucky that we found him and plan to use him for a lot of remodeling projects in our home. Very trustworthy and great guy which makes you very comfortable and confident that the job is being done right. He is very proud of his business and reputation and doesn't do a half A-- job if you know what I mean. So if you want to feel ABSOLUTELY sure that your project is done right and with care...give Iraj a call!
Good Luck!

Thank you for taking our painting project. You are wonderful to work with and your crew is a great group of professionals! You have all been very patient with us and we know we are going to love the beautiful results of the hard work and decision making that your team has put into our project. We'll look forward to applying "the perfect red" next week.

I was very impressed with Iraj's workmanship; the crisp lines, even coverage, timeliness, and he left the house spotless.

We decided to put our house on the market and asked Iraj to paint the interior of it and also clean the roof before listing. Everything his customers have written on the site regarding his work, ethic, and professionalism turned out to be true. He returned every phone call and email, and also sent me pictures of our house after the project was finished. We live in Texas now, but Iraj made us feel that we were just a phone call away, all the time. "We were impressed by the quality and professionalism of the work, and we know this will help us sell our home."

We knew Iraj and Bainbridge Paint and Design for the work he completed for MRJ constructors' project on Wyatt Way last year. We were pleased with the quality so much so that we asked him to paint our house. He completed the trim and the doors during the summer of 2009 and exterior painting on a new two story garage / entertainment room in the fall. What we liked about him and his company was the level of communication he maintained with us every step of the way. We knew what was going to be done and we were pleased with his ideas. The quality of the workmanship the and attention to detail is truly evident in his work. We have asked him to book us for some exterior painting in Mid Spring 2010.

I wanted to let you know how much I appreciated your professional approach to painting our house in North Town Woods. First of all, thank you for taking the time to promptly and completely respond to my request for bids for three different scenarios. I also liked that your team was able to start the job within a few days and complete the job in less than a week. Most importantly, I appreciated the professional painting work that your team did on our house. That is very important to me because I am renting out our Bainbridge house while living in New Zealand. As a remote home owner, I'm pleased that I was able to find a local paint contractor that I could trust.
Thanks again.

Hello Iraj,
I would like to thank you for the excellent interior paint job on the home located at 11345 Kallgren, Bainbridge Island that you completed in advance of our expectations. Your work was professional from your bid, the quality of workmanship and clean-up. I will use your services again on the next home that I list that needs to stand-out in a crowd.

Bainbridge Paint and Design makes you feel like you are the only customer they have! What we liked the best besides the quality of work was the way Iraj took time to explain the process of the work and answer all of our questions. He responded to every phone call and email very quickly. We recommended Iraj and the crew to our neighbor (and he was recommended to us by another neighbor) and they just completed a third exterior job on our block. A good company like this will always get referrals.

As a commercial General Contractor working on projects all over Puget Sound, we work with a number of building subcontractor trades in the industry. Throughout the years, our firm has always emphasized quality workmanship as being a #1 priority on our projects followed closely by schedule then price. We had asked Bainbridge Paint to work with us at our home, to refinish the exterior of our house and are very pleased with the results. Their attention to detail was as expected from a quality painter. All preparation work (scraping, caulking, masking and overspray protection) was carefully done to ensure a quality product. The project was not rushed but was completed with care to ensure quality results. I would not hesitate to hire Iraj and Bainbridge Paint for any work at our house, recommend his firm to our clients and/or friends and use hisfirm on any project that is within the capabilities of his company.

I've worked with Iraj for four years and the only thing that surpasses his integrity is his devotion to quality. His prices are eminently fair, he completes jobs on time and the work is superb. All of my customers for both interior and exterior paint and artistic design praise him to the skies, as I do!

Iraj and the crew at Bainbridge Paint and Design are a real find. They told me the exterior paint job would take one week, but they worked 11 hours a day to finish in three days so I could have the weekend to myself. The work they completed was first rate--they aimed for perfection. I plan to work with them again when I paint the interior of my home before the holidays.

Iraj, the deck looks great. Let me know when you have time. I have a long list, I need wiring (heater and lights), insulation, floors and I need to put up a shed. Nothing needs to be done right away but it sure is nice to have a beautiful deck for the summer.

Dear Iraj,
Your team recently painted the outside of our house and I wanted to let you know that they did an excellent job. They paid great attention to details, were extremely reliable and arrived on time every day. They are thorough, professional craftsmen who achieve outstanding results. We particularly appreciated your thoughtful suggestions on trim and doors. We look forward to working with you on the interior refurbishing projects we have discussed.

When we were looking for a painter to paint the exterior of our house, I asked for recommendations from the IslandMoms Yahoo Group. Roger (Iraj) Ashabi with Bainbridge Paint and Design came highly recommended. I called him and he and one of his crew showed up the next day to look over our project and give us an estimate. His estimate was very reasonably priced. We were so impressed with him and his crew that we decided to use them for the job. Throughout the entire process Roger and his crew were very professional, courteous, and responsive to my questions. They were highly knowledgeable and gave very helpful suggestions regarding the work to be done and the materials to use. Roger even took the time to talk with me about potential colors for our deck (a totally unrelated project)! The quality of the work was excellent and we have had multiple compliments on the paint job. Roger even made sure to follow-up and make sure that we were fully satisfied with the job. I highly recommend Bainbridge Paint and Design!!

We are absentee landlords on the Island. We decided to put our house on the market by July. Our tenants, who moved out at the end of May, left our property in a very bad state. Our real estate agent provided us with a long list of the essential steps we needed to take to prepare the house for the market. But for the help from Iraj and his crew, it would have been impossible to repair all the damage in time.

They repaired and repainted all the walls, power washed the roof and the decks, graveled the driveway, changed the carpets, changed broken windows and door frame, repaired a broken concrete patio, reconditioned the wood flooring, weeded and landscaped a very large front and back yard and removed truck loads of trash that our tenants had left for us!!! Our real estate agent was in awe when he visited the property at the end of June (so were we when we saw the pictures).

The most amazing part of this feat was the fact that Iraj and his crew did this work within one month while they were involved with other projects. However, as Iraj was aware of our time restraints he accommodated us whenever he could even during the weekends and in the evenings. Iraj regularly contacted us via email and by phone to update us of the progress and to talk about alternative solutions that were less costly and offered a better result. And, most importantly, he did this WITHIN OUR BUDGET.

We highly recommend Iraj and his crew. Iraj has a great eye for design (as an interior designer and an architect we can testify to this ability) and is trustworthy, reliable and a consummate professional.

Thank you again Iraj and Bainbridge Paint for your incredible work.

I and his crew absolutely transformed our newly purchased house into exactly what we wanted. From a dated, early 90s style to something much more modern, fresh and open, the house underwent a dramatic makeover in a matter of weeks. Our project included a completely new kitchen, new flooring throughout the house, all the window trim and baseboards were replaced, every surface was painted and windows and doors were added and replaced. The quality of the work was excellent, the timeliness of the project was amazing and the guidance provided was very helpful. Everyone on Iraj's team was great to work with and I would have no hesitations in recommending Bainbridge Paint and Design to friends and family.

Iraj worked hard to fit my job into his busy schedule and finish within the time frame I needed.

His expertise in problem-solving was invaluable. His experience and ingenuity really made the final product possible.

His personal supervision and the friendly connection between him and his employees made it a pleasure to have them around.

I also was so impressed by his concern and monitoring of his employees' safety as they navigated very tall ladders. He was very responsible in his access to and treatment of my home.

I highly recommend him. You will be lucky to have him say, "Yes I think we can make that work"!!
Thanks to you Iraj and crew

We found Bainbridge Paint & Design through a referral and can see why. Iraj and his team were great to work with on myriad levels: communication was solid, pricing was competitive, the crew were completely professional, the job was completed on time, and the work was excellent!

Excellent customer service and good communication. The crew was hard working and very clean- no mess left behind! I'm very pleased with the work, thank you Iraj!

Iraj is meticulous and patient as the details of the project are considered, whether the project is big or small . When the project is underway, he couldn't be better at communicating about issues that arise and working them out.

Partway through our project to repaint the house, my husband injured his knee. We asked Bainbridge Paint and Design to give us an estimate to complete the job. Despite their busy schedule, they sent someone to our house within days. They walked with us through each area we needed to have painted and described what needed to be done. They told us they would be busy for 7 weeks and asked if that was okay. After we said yes, we talked about paint colors and brands, they measured the space and gave us a quote later the same day. They said we would only pay for the materials and labor needed to complete the job and committed to coming in within 10% of the quote. That seemed fair so we accepted.

During the initial walk through, they discovered a problem with an area we had intended to paint. Our patio cover was rotting away. They brought it to our attention and asked whether we wanted to paint now or wait until it was repaired. They recommended extending the cover and changing the pitch of the roof to open up the space. Luckily they were able to do this type of small project too. Once again they described the process, talked about materials and design, then gave us a quote.

They were able to start sooner than expected and worked long, hard hours to minimize any disruption the project might cause us. They took care not to make a mess while they were working then cleaned up their tools and equipment every night. We have a small house, but they were able to replace and reroof the rotting patio cover and paint our house in one week. We are very happy with how it turned out and, best of all, both projects they came in under budget. We are already recommending them to our friends.

We highly recommend Iraj and his team at Bainbridge Paint. Our 10 year old house had trim and shingles that were in very bad shape! Iraj and his team came to the rescue with a flotilla of mini-rollers and angled brushes. They were fantastic and Iraj's design experience was invaluable. He was able to steer us in the right direction with colors and aesthetics. The end result is that the paint job was wonderful and our house looks brand new

Many thanks to Iraj and and the crew at Bainbridge Paint & Design. Our old farmhouse looks new! I would highly recommend them to anyone looking to improve their home's value, looks, and durability. Iraj and his crew did a fantastic job painting our home - they were efficient, professional, and attentive to every detail on the job.

We had a dilemma. We had a large wrap-around deck which was also sticky due to the way it had been waterproofed and sealed. It was a big detractor as guests' shoes would stick to the deck’s surface as they walked to our door or viewed the garden. After getting several bids, we were lucky to meet Iraj. He not only proposed a solution that was less expensive and time consuming than the others we received, but he kept his word and finished the job on time and within budget. The deck looks great and it's definitely not sticky anymore. That was the only the start. Since then, Iraj has painted a bathroom, completed major remodeling in our guest suite by constructing a wall with glass French doors,painted the trim around all of our exterior windows among other tasks. He just finished his work on our tile master bath and with his excellent design sense and flawless execution, we are excited about all the projects he will complete for us in 2009. He will always be the one we call on.

Iraj did a wonderful job for us. We were looking for a fast, friendly, professional painter to repaint the doors in our house. From day one we found Iraj to be all of those things and more. He finished his work on time and on budget - and we were so happy with the results, so we asked him to paint the exterior of our house! Based on his work for us - we would highly recommend him for any painting project.
