Since our company’s inception, we have always placed an emphasis on quality workmanship


Carrington Contracting did exactly what they said they were going to do, when they said they would do it.  From the first phone call to receipt of the final bill, everything was done with professionalism and with the customer in mind.    They exceeded my expectations.  It was the best experience I’ve ever had dealing with people performing work on my house.

Jim Carrington surveyed the house, gave us a reasonable estimate on the cost, and explained the procedure to accomplish the job.  The crew showed up on schedule and worked diligently to achieve a superb job.  They were polite and competent.  The final cost was as Mr. Carrington stated on his survey.  We are extremely happy.  It looks like a new house!

“For the past 20 years, Carrington Contracting has been successfully performing interior and exterior painting projects for Triangle residents.  I got my start in the business doing residential painting. There were many years of climbing ladders, scraping off old paint and applying new paint to area homes.  It was great on-the-job training.  While I don’t climb as many ladders now, I still appreciate a job well done and the satisfaction of  helping to protect and beautify people’s homes.” – Jim  Carrington
