About this pro

How does your business stand out?

Our work stands out for two reasons: One - we do meticulous prep work. Two - we use information that we gather from customers regarding their taste to create unique finishes for them. We have knowledge of scores of products from across the country and around the world. We literally concoct custom finishes for our customers.

What do you enjoy about the work you do?

Being creative is tremendously fulfilling. When we hear about a prospective customer's interest in doing a project, we start coming up with ideas. Because there are several of us in the business, we start bouncing ideas off of each other. This creates a wonderful synergy which means that we typically have so many good ideas that we have to whittle the list down to just the best of the best. Beyond this, we really like seeing the look of delight on our customer's face when they see the finished results.

    Very courteous, prompt, and took care of any of our specific needs, with a smile; and best of all gave good ideas, that we used, to make the room look nicer. Thanks John. We'll be back in the future with more jobs.

    John did an OUTSTANDING job on what my family and I requested. I would trust John to handle any project big or small. I felt extremely comfortable with John and he made sure to address all of our needs. My neighbor just walked in and took a look at the work John accomplished and had high praise and now would like John to do some work on his place after seeing the finished product! EXCELLENT!!! THANK YOU JOHN!

    I have worked for and along side of John now for the last three years I can honestly say his level of integrity is unsurpassed. All of the artisan's at The Color Craftsmen approach their craft with extreme passion. I had a water pipe burst in my home and the water did damage to the basement ceiling. John help my situation and made my acoustic ceiling look good as new.

    Great experience, John provided input on color options and painted test areas so we could compare paint colors. We will definitely use him on our future painting needs.

    John, is a superb professional with excellent communication skills. He is polite, friendly and his work is superior to other painters and decorators I have hired. I had ceiling patches and a huge water stain on the ceiling that needed repair. The wall color match and blending was so good that I did not need to paint the entire ceiling and wall, which saved me a ton of money. He also went above and beyond what he needed to do to help me with my caulking project in the bathroom. His knowledge, sincerity and integrity are beyond reproach and I will continue to use his service. I will recommend him to anyone and everyone I know.

    John was wonderful to work with. He was prompt, polite, professional and reasonable. I would have John do any other work on our home.

    Having great customers makes it easy to do good work for them.


What education and/or training do you have that relates to your work?
We can't count the number of certifications we have received for various kinds of training we have received. From one end of the country to the other - even overseas - we have traveled to be trained. That doesn't include the countless hours spent online seeking out more education, nor the networking we do with others in our field. By now you realize that we do this because we like it.
What advice would you give a customer looking to hire a provider in your area of work?
It's a great idea to learn what a contractor can - and can't - do for you. Look first for signs of good character; that's more important than what's written in their contract. Ask questions, lots of them. A contractor's reactions to your questions will tell you a lot about their interest in your project, their attention to your concerns, as well as their knowledge of the field.
