“Chris recently finished painting the exterior of our two-story house. He kept every promise: on schedule, and prepped the house thoroughly and carefully (he brought his own water tanks!). All painting was stellar, REALLY nicely done. He washed windows and made several repairs and improvements as he worked. He’s the best contractor we’ve had for work on our house in 28 years. Polite and fun to have around, too (no charge). Stop looking. He is the best of all Adirondack house painters!”

  1. Morning my boy! Just wanted to thank you again for all you did for me. You went way beyond what your job was! I also forgot to tell you that if you let me know when you have to take your mom to an app I would be more then glad to go with you to help. My way of repayment😊 I miss your smiling face! Hugs, debbie

  2. We were very happy with the work Chris did on our home. He was very easy to work with, understanding of our needs and flexible when it came to making adjustments along the way. We were making major changes to the color scheme of our exterior so it took some work to figure it all out. Chris communicated when there were question areas and would send pictures since we were in another state at the time the work was being completed. We would gladly recommend Chris to neighbors and friends and will use him again in the future.

  3. My wife and I rarely write endorsements, because quite frankly craftsmanship and professionalism are hard to find these days in the trades. Chris recently completed work on our 100 year old two story boathouse on Kiwassa Lake. Not only was his work professional and done with a dedicated eye to detail, he personally took the extra time to email us the before and after pictures each day as his work progressed!

    Chris, great job !! Wishing you all the recognition you so richly deserve.

    George and Linda Clough
