A good painter?

generic used paintbrushAmy emails:

We built a house and need a lot of painting done and you were the first place I went to for painter recommendations. You had a post about general contractors, but nothing about painters. Could you post a request for good interior painters?

Know of a good paint to suggest to Amy? Please share! And please explain a little bit about why that person is good -- attention to detail, fair price, whatever.

A lot of general contractors/builders/carpenters look for indoor painting work in the winter months. I know from personal experience that Lindop Carpentry has several excellent painters on their crew. They are honest, conscientious, and reasonably priced.

Lindop Carpentry - 899-4418

We moved to the area almost two years ago and needed the entire interior of our house painted. We went on a recommendation from our realtor and couldn't have been happier. Paul Flood and his son Connor are a father son team with many years of painting experience. They were very thorough, and had great attention to detail. They were neat and and very conscientious of the fact that we had to live in the house during all the work. Everything was cleaned up at the days end and they put in a full day of work everyday. The price was fair. They even have a good eye for style and color if you need a second or third opinion. Highly recommended

Paul Flood 518-727-1827.

Hennessey Painting (owned by Dave Hennessey), with 25+ years in the business is the only painter I've used for two houses I've owned. Very careful and clean work, on time, and a super friendly crew of employees. His phone # is 518-766-4161.

George Rozell painting. 858-0297. Nice neat work and very friendly guy!

Handyman Frank (Frank Spor) does neat work and isn't sloppy
(518) 895-8278

Or

Bob Stetz (518) 783-5408 also does good work.

Neither have a website, but they have both done work in my office and the finished product was perfect and they both cleaned up after themselves.

Thanks for the suggestions!! I have a few coming over for estimates. We've been in the new house since February and it's time to get moving on the painting...

go with Peter Michelman (518) 438-7803 - his pricing is middle of the road, but he's very thorough, intelligent, and a pleasure to do business with

Both my sister and my mother used Brown Brothers Painting - Mike Brown, one of the owners is the realtor that sold me my house. They not only did a very good job, doing adequate prep work, which many contractors miss, but they also were really good to work with. They showed up on time and cleaned up thoroughly.

I agree with Gretchen, Brown Brothers are great.

Ed Foy out of Ballston Spa. He has painted at least half the houses on our block both in and out. Great guy who puts in an onset days work every day.

Thanks so mich for the recommendations!! Now off to pick out paint colors...

Hey Amy- Lots of great recomendations out there -- I have to agree with Bill - Ed Foy is a good pick, nice guy too.
Who am I ? also a painter - lots of experience (over 25 yrs)
I'd be happy to give you an estimate, but, at this point you might want to wait to paint till after the holidays- that way you can fix all the damage ( stockings,wreaths,uncle Earls head dent ) and start out the new year with fresh paint.

I too recommend Peter Michelman. Great to work with and conscientious. He repaired and painted a few ceilings for me. He advertises in the TU service directory under painting as Duke Brothers.

Terence Lynch of Victorian Pride Painters. They do a lot of historic restoration stuff in the Columbia and Greene Counties (last I knew they were working on a large scale project at Olana), but have also been known to do Cap Region stuff... Both interior and exterior. Perfectionists and very very detailed and reasonably priced... Especially considering the time and attention. Respectful dudes who care about their reputation more than squeezing out a few extra bucks. Terry's number: 518-225-0952.

George Rozell Painting is excellent. He's been in the painting business 16 years (as of 2014). Painting is all he does and he knows his craft. Painted the outside of our house. Caulked the soffits, scraped, sanded, and oil primed clapboard before painting. Painted the replacement window frames (how many painters would do that?) with a paint made for that surface (not a wood paint). Excellent attention to detail. Does the job quickly, professionally, and is very reasonably priced.

Although I think the city is best served by having the state decommission and demolish this section of highway, if it is to be, then a couple things to consider. First, a big challenge is integrating the trail with Broadway along the exit ramp that feeds B'way from 787.The second is covering the cost of maintenance, not only of the linear park, but of the framework holding it aloft. ...
