Thank you again to you and your amazing team for an outstanding paint job. Having experienced many painters in my time, I have never seen a more professional outfit than yours. You and your team do an excellent job from the first moment of contact right up until your exit from my home upon completion of the job. I not only appreciate the attention to detail with painting, but your men are courteous, organized, neat and excellent communicators. Your team showed up on time every day. They cleaned up
meticulously each night and made sure I understood what they were doing during each phase of the work. The paint job itself was excellent. I am especially appreciative of their meticulous painting as they made sure there was no unwanted paint specs on any glass windows, the floor or any door hardware.
Thank you again for such a wonderful job. My home looks beautiful and I would highly recommend you to anyone.

I just wanted to send a note thanking you and your crew for the fantastic work that you have completed for us. The quality of the work was exceptional, you and your crew were very courteous to our family, the work was done in a timely manner, and you have easily been the cleanest painters that we have ever used. We have an old house (1931) and have done a lot of work renovating it that has included a number of painters. Older houses have a different set of challenges (in this case 80+ years of old paint). That quality of the work on the older parts of the house equal to the work on the new sections, resulting in a very consistent final product. After using you, it is clear that we will enthusiastically use you going forward. To have such high quality in both the workmanship and the service is unique these days and obviously why your company has been successful for so long.
If you have any future customers that would like to speak with us, we would eagerly endorse you and be happy to do so.

I have relied on Andy and his crew to do all the interior painting in my home for the past 10 years. He is simply the best. Andy responds to phone calls quickly, provides estimates within a couple of days, and is flexible in accommodating my schedule and specific needs and requirements. Jarek and Pawel are reliable and courteous, diligent and meticulous, and SO quiet while working that my elderly, neurotic cat (who usually hides when strangers are in the house) actually emerges from her hiding spot while they are working! Unlike many contractors who sell a job and then disappear until it’s time to collect payment, Andy is completely accessible throughout the work process and, in fact, always checks on work as its being done.
A reliable, honest, hardworking and professional team who consistently deliver the highest quality work – what more could one want?

We own a bi-level with cathedral ceilings for some 30 years. It was time for a change. My son recommended Andrew Picone for the painting of the interior. What concerned me was painted over wall paper on the center wall and ceiling cracks along with nail pops.
Initially, new drywall to cover the painted over papered wall was the way to go. Was I wrong. Andrew convinced me that two skim coats would be better and cheaper than drywall. Ceiling problems was old hat to him. After review in a well prepared quote that covered exactly the number of coats for living room, dining room and two hallways which included the time period involved. Trim and doorways and closet were all inclusive.
They started at 8:00 a.m. and left at 4:30p.m. Four days later, my wife and I couldn’t have been happier. The interior ceilings, walls, doors, and trim all look great, like new. Importantly, the courtesy of Andrew and his workers give the feeling of family. Also, they answering any questions and wanted to please any request. Both my wife and I felt we received more than our monies worth. In this times, a rarity when dealing with contractors coming in on time and on budget.
I had my doubts, but Andy’s experience and professionalism was the central part of the team that accomplished a successful project and mutual experience that builds true friendships.

Andy Picone’s company has now pained both the interior and exterior of our 1925 Tudor home. When we first bought our house five years ago, Andy’s crew did a fantastic job painting the interior of the home, including stripping and staining the wood in places. The level of workmanship was outstanding and we were very pleased. When it came time to paint the exterior we made one call–to Andy. Again his crew handled numerous tasks in addition to painting which included repairing rotten wood, re-glazing casement windows, and repairing stucco. Everything was again handled in an expert fashion. We couldn’t be more satisfied with the work and would not hesitate to recommend Andy Picone.

Recently we had additions made to our home in Basking Ridge, New Jersey and contracted with Andrew Picone to do the interior painting.
I want to take this opportunity to thank Andy and his crew for doing a great job in using their talent and their suggestions resulting in a first-class job. They were a joy to have at my home. They answered every question and accommodated every request. They were true artists.
We made the right decision in contracting Andy and I have no hesitation in recommending his company to my friends.

In May and June 2010, Andrew Picone Painting and Paperhanging, Inc. was contracted to paint the interior of our home. We are writing this letter of recommendation in appreciation of their outstanding work and extreme professionalism.
The painting crew, Jarek and Pawel, arrived at the site everyday on time and took breaks and lunches timed to the minute. They focused on work continuously the rest of the day. They were careful in moving furniture and covered everything to protect from spills and splatters. They had a plan on how to carry out the phases of work so as to make transitions as smooth as possible and flow from one room into the other. The quality of the painting is excellent. From the preparation of the walls to the finishing coat, the care and quality of their work is evident.
We also feel the crew is very trustworthy. We did not hesitate to leave them alone in the house. On more than one occasion they left at the end of the day and locked the house as per instructions.
Richard & Cindy, Lebanon, NJ
I would highly recommend Andrew Picone Painting and Paperhanging Company. Andy and his crew have always provided me with excellent service. I moved into a new home in 1995 that was completely covered in builders white. Andy helped me to select my colors and was very flexible with all the changes that I requested of him. Andy’s employees are always professional and courteous. They maintain a very clean worksite. I have always been very pleased with his work; my satisfaction has always been Andy’s top priority. He has been my painter of choice over the last 15 years. I have recommended Andy to my friends and will continue to do so in the future.
Sue, Warren, NJ
It is with such pleasure that I write this letter to say how fantastic you and your crews are. We have been using your painting and wall paper services for 12 years now and we will never change. You have provided us with excellent service and beautiful results for over a decade.
I remember when we first met; we were interviewing contractors and vendors for the renovation of our new home on Summit Avenue. Every room in the house had to be painted or wallpapered. We were dealing with old paint crusted moldings in the 1927 vintage portions of the house and new sheetrock in the addition areas. You told us you could easily handle it all. You came over to survey the situation and gather information to give us an estimate. We gained confidence in your thorough approach. You were perfectly candid and told us that you wouldn’t be the lowest bid we received, but you would be the best. You were precisely right! Your work was extraordinary and we have continued to use you throughout the years.
It’s one type of job to paint a house that no one is living in while renovation is being performed. It is completely different to paint a house inside and out while it is being occupied and really lived in every day. Your team excels in this type of work! It amazes me each time your crew is here how polite, thoughtful and above all neat and tidy they are. Every evening when your crew packs up for the night, they dust and vacuum leaving virtually no sign that they were there other than freshly painted surfaces. Our son is allergic to dust and you have been able to wet sand and keep that fine paint dust to a minimum. You’ve shown innovation and attentiveness in all your work here.
We look forward to all our future paint jobs with you and would be happy to speak with any of your prospective customers.
Wishing you continued success and good health.
Gentry and Roger, Summit, NJ
Thank you for the excellent painting projects your company has performed on our home over the last eleven years. Your firm painted the interior and exterior of our home in 1999. It was done in the most professional manor and completed on time. Through the years including this year, 2010, your estimates have been competitive and consistent with the final charge. Your painters are courteous and deliver excellent quality and we trust them working in our home.
We recommend your company to anyone looking for professional painting quality in their home.
Heather and Kem, Summit, NJ
Andy Picone has done all the painting for us at our Bernardsville home for over the past 15 years-both exterior and interior (including paperhanging). In addition, his father did some work for us prior to Andy taking over the business.
In view of this, it is obvious that we were very pleased with the quality of the work, and would never use anyone else. Andy and his crews are very professional, reliable and neat, and the result of their work speaks for itself. Several of his employees have worked for Andy for many years, and it is very comforting to know them personally and to know that you can count on getting a quality job.
It is more like working with an old friend than a contractor. As an example, Andy last painted our house in August of last year. At that time, my wife unexpectedly had to go into the hospital for major heart surgery, and it was very reassuring to know that I could safely leave the house in their hands while I was going back and forth to the hospital. Andy has also been very responsive whenever I called him between major jobs to have something fixed or patched. He was always quick to take care of it, which is very much appreciated.
My wife and I have recommended Andy to several of our friends over the years, and are very pleased to give him this recommendation, and to thank him for his good work on our behalf.
Andy Picone has worked for me for over 4 years and I have always been pleased with the quality and consistency of his work. His crew has always been professional, neat and courteous and has been a pleasure to work with. I have used him for both painting and paper hanging and have always been happy with the great job they have done.
We highly recommend Andy Picone and his team of painters. Andy’s team recently painted the outside and deck of our house and we are very pleased with the results. Over ten years or more Andy’s people have panted the inside and outside of our home in Summit several times and the inside of a vacation house in Sea Girt. They have always done a very professional job. They are nice people who are good to work with and to discuss the best approach to things. While doing the job they are respectful of your property and your lifestyle. Andy is honest and a professional with many years of painting and related experience. We highly recommend Andy Picone and his people for any painting work.
Art and Pat,
Experience with Andrew Picone Painting and Paperhanging
We have used Andy’s services for over 20 years. His company has done virtually all the painting-related work (interior sheet rock repair, painting, and paperhanging, as well as exterior power washing, staining and treating of decks, cedar siding, shingles and fencing) that we have done since buying a new home in Bernardsville 25 years ago. He has consistently done such high quality work that if we have to wait 6 months for him to be available, we wait. He employs skilled workmen who are flexible, cooperative and courteous. Some tend to return year after year and when there is a turnover the same attitude seems to come with the new employees. We are not easy to please but can truthfully say that we have never been dissatisfied with anything he has done.
Dorothy & David,
We hired Andrew Picone Painting at the end of an extensive home renovation in the fall of 2007. He came highly recommended and we were not disappointed. In addition to completely painting 4 rooms (ceiling, walls, trim, etc.) there was a fifth large room that was having a special suede finish put on. They were at our home for about a week.
The work was started as planned and completed on schedule. The painters were very professional and left the work space clean at the end of each day. We have been very, very pleased with the finished product and would not hesitate to use them again or recommend them to a friend.
Maureen & Don,
Testimonial For Andrew Picone Painting
We have known Andy Picone since 1997 when we hired him to paint the interior and exterior of our newly renovated home in Summit and have been using him ever since. Andy and his crew are a pleasure to be around, reliable, professional, and meticulous. The quality of their work is so good, that we have gone many years before we’ve needed repainting. We would be happy to recommend Andrew Picone Painting to anyone.
Helene & Walter,
I hired Andrew Picone Painting to paint the interior of my vacation home in Long Beach Island.
I was extremely pleased with the thoroughness of the proposal, the professionalism of his crew and the timeliness of the project.
The quality of the painting was nothing less than perfection. I was thrilled with each and every room. Even my guests have commented on how wonderful it looks.
Since this is my vacation home I was not onsite to supervise the project but I had no reason to do so as I received timely updates.
I would highly recommend Andy and his company.
