ANGIES LIST / Description of Work:  Pressure washed house, painted outside trim, repaired damaged wood. 


I called for an estimate and Ray came right out.  He arrived at the time he promised.  The estimate was very reasonable for the work performed.  he and his son did the work over a perior of 3 days.  First they pressure washed the house then scraped the peeling paint from the trim, door surrounds and a gate.  These are the only wood surfaces outside.  They did some minor repair to a trellis prior to painting.  A  patched area on a stucco surface was painted and the finished area is completely blended with the already painted wall.  All of the work area was left clean when teh job was finished.  My tenant pruchased the house after this painting was done.  Their work was so good she hired them to do some inside painting.

Armor Painting just finished repairing our stucco and painting the exterior of our home. We are very happy with the service we received. They were patient as we picked our colors, showed up on time (as scheduled) and were thorough to make sure nothing was missed. I look forward to doing business with them again.

ANGIES LIST / Description of Work:  Painted all exterior trim, garage door, and exterior doors.  Pressure washed house and cleaned exterior windows prior to painting. 


Very professional as well as very friendly people.  They answered all our questions in a straight forward manner.  It took awhile to get our schedules aligned, but we never felt pressured nor neglected.  Since we were going on vacation, they did all the painting that required open door access the first day, and complted the job while we were gone.  They are a small business and I was impressed with everyone we dealt with.  The left the remainting paint with us.  I would not hesitate to use Armor Painting again.

 ANGIES LIST / Description of Work:  Painted garage doors, patio pillars and side garage doors. 


I got a quote for double and single garage doors to be cleaned, sanded and painted.  After seeing the time, quality and pride he put into his work, I also hired him to do the side garage door, and pillars on the patio.  In the spring I plan to have the whole house painted and will have Armor Painting do the job.  We were completely satisfied with the work he did.

Rayy Whitesell painted the exterior of my home.  He removed aluminum sun shades then painted and reinstalled them.  Ray also remolded my bathroom and I am very please at the results.  He does great work and we would recommend him.

Ray Whitesell has done work for me since 2004.  He has painted my personal  residence and all of my Bakersfield rental properties more than once.  I have always been very pleased with Ray's work as a painter; he has always done a great job.  Ray has always been professional and it shows in the quality of his work. I would personally recommend him to my closest friends.

Armor Painting (Ray Whitesell) painted the interior of my father's home at 7820 Vera Avenue, Bakersfield, CA 93307.  Mr. Whitesell removed all window coverings and prepped and painted the interior.  He then reinstalled all window coverings and made sure that we were satisfied with his job.  My husband and I were both please that Mr. Whitesell scheduled the work and did it when he said he would.  This was very important to us because we have used contractors before that did not do what we had agreed upon.  We would not hesitate to have him do other jobs for us, if needed.

Ray Whitesell with Armor Painting did a paint job for my office in the last 12-18 months and did an excellent job.  Upon completion of the paint job we discussed window coverings  and coincidently Ray mentioned that he could do that for me as well.  Ray proceeded to install the window coverings for us and they are still in use today.

Over the last 20 years Ray Whitesell has been helping us with our home repair and painting on numerous occastions.  He has always done professional quality work and because of that we have reccommended his services to others. He has painted the majority of our home inside at least twice and some rooms more. He has always taken down the window coverings and replaced them when the job is finished with either the ones he removed or new replacements. He has also replaced ten of our windows and with each one had to take down and reinstall the window coverings. His work is impeccable!

I used Armor Painting to paint a rental property that I own in Bakersfield.  I asked Ray to remove and clean all the blinds that where in the house.  Ray reinstalled the blinds throughout the house after cleaning them.  I am very pleased with the work that he did and how Ray was very professtional and organized.  I will use him again and will recommend him to others.

We have known Ray for over five years and he has performed numerous repairs and remodeling services on our two residents.  Ray is one of the best craftsmen we have ever encountered.  He is skilled at painting, home repairs and remodeling including expertise in window instillations and coverings.  He is very good at scheduling his projects and he is incredibly organized.  He is very conscientious in his work and is respectful to all those he works for and around.  Above all, Ray gets the kind of results one desires.  It was a pleasure to have Ray work in both of our homes.  He is a friendly, high-energy individual with a sincere heart to perform his services with integrity and the utmost professionalism.
