Learn about Sunwest Painting

Sunwest Painting was founded by Alonso Ponce back in 2001. After working for several years as a painter for a very successful company, he decided to start his own company in hopes of becoming a successful business owner and have more time to spend with his family. Alongside with his wife they started working together to build what is now Sunwest Painting. He would get the leads, buy material, do the jobs and she would take care of the finances and all admin work from their home office. Within a short time, he hired his first employee and several contractors throughout the years. Most of the residential growth was through referrals and word of mouth; his past employer hired him as a subcontractor and gave him a lot of commercial business. By 2013 his son Luis joined the company and with his help they expanded tremendously in both residential and commercial. By 2014 they moved into a shop, had purchased several company vehicles and hired more painters and office staff.

Today, Sunwest Painting is well known in the south bay and surrounding areas. Thanks to their hard work and great painting crew they been awarded the 2015 and 2016 Super Service Award by Angie’s List, they are listed as the top painting contractor in Google search, and their online reviews keep growing making their online presence stronger in all social media including Yelp, Google, Facebook, and Angie’s List to name a few.

What has distinguished Sunwest Painting from other painting companies besides their outstanding work is their honesty and client relations, a lot of the growth has been because of repeat business and referrals. Their clients become their friends and they treat each project with the attention and care that they would treat theirs. Success has not come easy. It has been a lot of years of hard work, sacrifice and commitment. All the years working together in this industry has given them the experience needed to become experts in completing each project meeting and exceeding their clients’ expectations. Hiring Sunwest means hiring someone that knows what it takes to leave your home or building looking its best.

The Real Cost of Hiring an Unlicensed Painting Contractor

Trying to find the right painting contractor to work in your house can be overwhelming. Before going online to search for the hundreds of companies listed or calling the number on the flyer you got in the mail – the first “contractors” you call are those that have been recommended by friends and family. When doing so, you may come across one that is unlicensed. Their bid might be much lower than those licensed contractors doing the same work. Although it might sound tempting to save money, hiring an unlicensed contractor may cost you more in the long run.
