Testimonials From Michigan


To Whom It May Concern,

This letter is to recommend Mr. Burtless-Creps as a capable and proficient business leader for his undertaking as a Student Painters Manager.

Sean was very pleasant to work with on the project for which his team was employed for our home. He was extremely professional throughout all our interactions and was impressive in his communication about the plan, completion, and follow-up review of our contract.

We were very pleased with the timeliness and outcome of the project under Sean’s management. We would confidently recommend him to others as a competent and very pleasant young gentleman with whom we would be pleased to employ for future projects.

Student Painters Customer,

Anyone who paints a house these days wonders if he/she should hire one the the doezens of commercial painting companies hitting their mail and doorknobs or risk hiring a “student painter”. Our house was not an easy project. The house is older, on the lake with wind beaten siding, chimney, fence, shad cover, and obstacles like height, cables, and many windows. John Bonzelaar sold himself and the job during the bidding process.

I must say, John, the Student Painter contractor, was impressive, timely, detailed, and in control. I have been an academic dean in my life and this crew was hard-working, customer conscious, and fun to be around.

They met their schedule and were responsive to the add-ons.

Couldn’t be more pleased and proud of this experience.

Dear Mr. Acorn,

I know the job you did for me was a small one, but Chad and his crew treated it like it was a major one. They put all their hearts into it. They were very nice to me and very respectful of my property. They did a wonderful job and I would recommend you to anyone who needs a job done. I will also call you if I need anything else done. Thank you!

We recently employed Student Painters to stain our house and garage. Austin Scott came to our home with a terrifically professional presentation. The four young men arrived in reasonable time to power wash. Allowing drying time they came to stain.  They had consulted us on the color (which was perfect) then proceeded to stain. The care they gave on our home was wonderful and the results perfect! My husband and I recommend Student Painters highly. We are totally satisfied.

Dear Kris Shafer and Student Painters,

There was so much going on when you were painting my house that I never really had a chance to tell you how pleased I was at the way your crew handled the project. From the day when a young woman came to my door to see if I wanted to have my house painted (I did) to the day when the workers packed up their brushes and other tools at the end of the work, everything seemed to go very smoothly.

My impressions of you are all positive.  I didn’t see anyone wasting time, and all of you seemed to know what to do. I had been told that the job would take about three days. In actuality, the project from start to finish took less than two days. My friends and neighbors were surprised at how rapidly you painters completed the work

People have asked how to contact the painters. I say to visit their website. I was told that the students in many cases are working to pay for their college education, to complete internship programs, and to enhance their resumes. The workers were friendly and polite. Several of my neighbors, seeing how quickly my house paint was updated, hired them for future paint jobs. Now, as I drive around my small village, I am pleased to see signs put up by the Student Painters.

To Whom It May Concern,

My recent experience dealing with Chet Sadowski from the Student Painter organization was outstanding.   Chet was professional, courteous and personable and he listened closely to my concerns and needs.  He made thoughtful suggestions and enlightened me with his knowledge of the entire process from quoting to clean-up.   Although we elected to put off our job for another year or two, we definitely plan to contact Chet and the Student Painters again.  I would recommend to anyone that they contact Student Painters before making their final decision on their painting job.

To Whom It May Concern:

A crew of Student Painters have been at our house since early morning. They exhibit diligence, persistence, skill and patience. We are hapy to have contracted them to paint windows, decks, screens and storm windows.

We feel confident recommending them for anyone considering them for painting work.

Attn: S. Acorn,

It was my pleasure to hire Student Painters this 2012 summer. Very professional college student, Brad Murphy, paid me a visit and looked over the job and what I expected. Quoted in writing on location as we picked a date for completion.

Yes they met our deadline date even with the month of June’s rainy days. The job was completed on time, what we expected, with excellent clean up, and a nice completed finished job.

I’ve psoted their card on my bulletin board here at work and would recommend these young people to anyone in our area. Thank you.

To Whom it May Concern:

I have used Student Painters on two seperate occasions and I could not be more pleased. My most recent job was managed by Nick Territo and I could not have asked for a more professional job. I was extremely happy with every detail. I will continue to use Student Painters in the future and will not hesitate to recommend them to anyone.

Steve Acorn:

A note to let you know that John Doyle and his crew did an excellent job of staining our house. They were efficient, hardworking, timely and skilled in performing the job. I wouldn’t hesitate to hire them again.

My wife and I recently hired Flavio Castelli with Student Painters to paint the interior of our home. He returned calls right away and went out of his way to accommodate our busy schedules. He was very punctual for our initial meeting early on a Saturday morning. We knew right away we were in good hands by his professionalism. As for the work done on our house, he did a beautiful job! He had great insight on colors and how to use them throughout the house. We wound up taking a lot of his advice and are glad we did. We are already brainstorming some future ideas so we can hire him again next year.

Thanks, Student Painters, for hiring and training such wonderful employees. Our experience was an absolute pleasure. I have already referred Flavio to another friend!

Mr. Acorn,

Student Painters painted a house that we own at 111 Carlton SE, Grand Rapids, Michigan during a few days during this past summer. Every time we see the house we are so happy with the work that was done. All of the work was neat and the clean up was very thorough. Nick did an excellent job of anticipating any areas of difficulty and all of the painters followed the specific directions that we had agreed upon.

I would highly recommend Student Painters to anyone who is considering having their house painted.

I just wanted to drop a letter to let you know how happy I am with the job that Student Painters completed in May 2008.

First, I got three quotes from different companies. Student Painters gave me the best quote with one of the best quality paints on the market.

Daniel Monroe started the job on time and completed it in the same day, as he had estimated. The paint job was professional and everything was cleaned up at the end.

I have highly recommended Student Painters to my family and friends.

Just wanted to drop a note to tell you how impressed my husband and I were with the Student Painters who worked at our house this spring.I have lots of perennials all around the house and I was quite concerned with all the foot traffic and ladders that would be all around where my plants are. And then, a robin decided to build a nest in the crab tree right next to the house. By the time the boys started on the project, 2 eggs had hatched and 2 more eggs were on the verge.

Well, my worries were totally unnecessary as all my plants survived and the baby robins-all 4 of them-grew up and left the nest!

We chose the color stain we wanted from a large choice of samples and they did an excellent job of painting. No messes at all! They went the extra mile with a mildew issue we had and still completed the job on time.

We would definitely recommend them to anyone considering painting/staining their home.

We would like to thank Daniel again for a job especially well done.
