“I met Tim during the restoration of my ca.1792 home. His attention to detail, color, and finished product are exceptional. He knows his materials, his crew, and the industry well. I have since used Tim for several retail, commercial, and rental properties, as well as properties to re-sell, with each job handled professionally, courteously, and in a fair and timely manner. A job with Tim is not complete until I say I am happy, and Tim always makes sure it is done to my satisfaction. Interior or exterior, he does good work. Don’t let the goofy grin or wild hair fool ya, this guy knows his stuff!!!” -T. Gwaltney, Smithfield
“I have known Tim with Gotcha Covered Painting for several years. He has completed numerous painting projects for me. Tim makes sure the project is completed with the upmost quality. The thing I appreciate most about Tim is his desire to do things the right way. He is a “hands on” Owner, honest, and dependable. I would recommend Gotcha Covered Painting on any painting project.” -Rod, Williamsburg
“When my wife and I were looking for someone to strip off our wallpaper in five rooms of our house, we knew it was too big of a job for us to undertake. We were skeptical of trusting anyone, as we were new to the area and really were worried about being ripped off. I called Gotcha Covered Painting and got the answering machine. It wasn’t more than an hour or two and I received a call back from Tim. He was curious and polite, not to mention was able to come that next morning for an estimate. He was in and out with his estimate, and we felt it was very fair and very competitive. In the end, he also stood by his estimate, even though in our case more work was necessary. The real surprise was that he had a whole crew there the next day, to start, as well as the job done was exceptional!! The people that came were very nice, personable and we could tell they cared about “us” and not just getting the work done. I would recommend them to anyone, big or small job, and would feel that you couldn’t go wrong with this company.” -Dave & Lynn, Newport News


Master painter Timothy Widlacki has been a Peninsula resident since his military family moved here in 1967. He is a graduate of Tabb High School and opened his first construction and painting business in 1978 while a student at then named Christopher Newport College. Timothy is an avid outdoorsman/adventurer and enjoys fishing, hiking, and camping throughout scenic Virginia with his family and his son’s Boy Scout troop.

Quality work and customer satisfaction have been the driving forces behind Timothy’s business endeavors, and he and his crew strive to deliver on these high standards. Few painting contractors go the extra mile to ensure each job is properly prepped and repaired prior to painting, but that sets us apart from the rest. Whether it’s new construction or renovations, you can count on Gotcha Covered Painting Etc., to do the job right, right from the start.
