Tony has been painting for me for 30 years which shows how much I think of him. His work is impeccable! He is very nice, never leaves a mess and does small repair jobs too! I give him my highest recommendation regardless of how simple or difficult the job may be!

Excellent painter, spackler, carpenter and all around nice guy. Cannot recommend highly enough. Skimmed coated and painted my entire house. I am very picky and hard to, please when it comes to home improvements. Tony is more of a perfectionist than me. You will not be sorry if you hire him. He also wallpapers and does faux painting.
