“They were very good, and we were extremely satisfied. They painted the inside and outside of our house, and they were extremely thorough. They were very attentive to detail. I would give them an A+. They were incredible.”
“They did an excellent job. They painted several rooms. They were absolutely on time, they were very courteous, and they did exactly what they said they were going to do. It was an excellent experience all around. I'd definitely give them an A.”
“We've been very happy with their services. This is the second time we've used them, and we would highly recommend them. I like that they are very thorough and detailed. It's always about service and quality for us, and they exceeded in both of those. I would give them an A.”
“They were excellent. They were on time and professional—A.”
“I think they do an excellent job, very professional, and I've used them to do the outside of my house two times. I would grade them an A-, only because the last time they knocked my grill over and messed it up.”
“They were very nice and very helpful. I would grade them an A.”
“It's been a couple of years, and they did well. I would grade them an A.”
“I think they did work outside for us. They did a very good job, they were very responsive, the gentlemen cleaned up very well after, and we were very pleased with them. I would grade them an A. They were great. I think we wrote them a note afterward.”
“They did what they said they were going to do when they said they were going to do it. I would grade them an A. Of all the painters that I've used in the years, they showed up when they said they would and did what they said they were going to do—they did their job. I have already recommended them.”
“I was very pleased with them. I would grade them an A.”
“I liked the owner. He did a good job with assisting with what needed to be done and was knowledgeable.”
“They did fine. They were fast, prompt, and accurate. I would recommend them.”
“They do great work. I've done business with Kenneth Axt & Associates over the years, and they are wonderful people. They came one day and prepared, and then came back the following day and painted. They didn't waste any time. They got it done very promptly. The customer service was perfect. I had used them in the past to paint the exterior of the house, and the paint job on the house has held up over ten years at this point. The only thing I've had to call them back for was to repaint the deck, but that's not their fault because the deck absorbs a lot of paint and has to handle the rain and everything. They're an A+ company.”
“They are the best. They have painted the inside and outside. I'd give them an A+.”
“We used Kenneth Axt & Associates. They're in Best Pick Reports. They're wonderful. He came and gave us the estimate, and they didn't make any messes. They cleaned up after themselves, and they were all very polite. I'd give them an A.”
“I used Kenneth Axt & Associates for outside house painting, and I loved them. They get an A from me.”
“Their crew is wonderful. They did painting, and they are very conscious and clean up and all that. They did interior and exterior painting. They have the same interior crew that they had when we lived here before, which was seven years ago. ”
“We got a painter years ago out of Best Pick Reports called Kenneth Axt & Associates, and we would hire them again in a heartbeat. He painted most of the interior rooms and probably the whole house, including the outside. I'd give them an A+. I like them a lot.”
“I liked their attention to detail, especially in carpentry and the fixes that are required before the actual painting. They painted the entire exterior of the house. There were some areas with wood rot or whatever that they actually had to fix before they did the painting. I found out about them through Best Pick Reports. They deserve an A+.”
“They're very professional about it. They come when they say they will, and the quality of the work is very good. This year, they did interior painting, and in the past, they painted the exterior of our home. They were recommended to us by a friend who had used them in the past. I would give them an A+ because they were very good.”
“I recently used Kenneth Axt & Associates, and I had really good results with them. They did exterior painting for me. I liked the quality of the work that was done. When they initially came out to do the estimates, they were early. A lot of companies wouldn't come at all, or they would be really late coming out. I have a lot of reservations about doing business with companies that are late. However, Kenneth Axt & Associates was very professional. They had quality inspectors that came out daily to inspect the work that was done by their personnel. They did a final walk-around review to make sure that we were satisfied with the work that was done, and I was very pleased with the work that they did. They get an A rating from me.”
“They have done work for me twice in the past, and I have always been very happy with their work.”
“I have used him multiple times—I've got a history with them. Most recently, they did exterior painting. They do what they say what they are going to do, and they do a quality job.”
“So far, it has been good. I have not gotten around to inspecting what they did, but things seem to be good so far. They painted the exterior of the house. They did the job and that was it.”
“They painted the exterior of the house, and I would recommend them to others.”
“Kenneth Axt & Associates did a good job.”
“The number one thing was I liked was how Kenneth, the owner, was involved. When there were issues—and for any project, you're going to have something—he was attentive to it. His interest in making sure we were happy with the work was probably one of the big reasons we went with him. They did painting and wood trim repair and replacement. It was a complete exterior job; they were repainting the house. I think that we found him through Best Pick Reports. I would give him an A.”
“I liked the communication level as far as keeping me updated with what they were going to do and at what time, and I liked the quality of the work that was performed. They did interior painting, touching up drywall, and touching up some wood damage. I have used them for many, many years now. I would give them an A.”
“Kenneth Axt & Associates painted the exterior and interior of my house, and it was good quality of work. I had them do two different jobs. They were pretty good with follow-up and keeping us updated with what was going on. They were recommended by a neighbor.”
“I liked their work, and they were very cordial and very professional. They did painting and some carpentry work. I had seen one of my neighbors use them, and I was looking to get some work done, so I used them twice. I chose them the first time because I saw them at my neighbor's house, and I used them the second time because I saw their work and was satisfied with them.”
“We have used them twice. They're a great crew, and he's a nice guy. They did good work, and they were clean and efficient. Most recently, he painted several rooms in the house and the ceilings throughout. Prior to that, they did the outside of the house. They also do carpentry work. Wherever there was dry rot or anything like that, he had a team that knew how to fix it. I have recommended Kenneth Axt & Associates to several people.”
“Kenneth Axt & Associates has done painting outside for me. I liked that they did not try to upsell me. They were recommended to me by a friend.”
“Kenneth W. Axt & Associates is wonderful. I've done business with them over the years. They do great work, and the customer service is perfect. They don't waste time, and they get it done very promptly. In the past, they painted the exterior of the house, and the job has held up for ten years—A+.”
“We would hire Kenneth W. Axt & Associates again in a heartbeat. They painted probably the whole house, including most of the interior rooms and the outside. I like them a lot. They're an A+ company.”
“We used Kenneth W. Axt, and they were great. They were all very polite, they didn't make any messes, and they cleaned up after themselves. It was wonderful. They deserve an A+.”
“I love Kenneth W. Axt & Associates. They painted the outside of the house, and they get an A from me.”
“We had our house painted by Kenneth Axt & Associates, and they did an excellent job. I'd definitely use them again. They scraped the whole house and replaced the rotten wood. Then, they repainted everything and did a beautiful job. I'd rate them as an A+.”
“Kenneth Axt & Associates painted the exterior of my house, and they were fantastic. We really, really enjoyed working with Kenneth Axt and his brother. We've made several recommendations and referrals since then. They did a really, really nice job. We liked their attention to detail on the initial quote. One of the Axt brothers—I think it was Ken—came to the house. We'd gotten several quotes, and the other companies were here for 10 to 15 minutes. I think he was on site for over an hour, and he gave me probably a three-page written quote. He took the time to show me exactly where I had wood damage and exactly how they were going to be painting. I had some woodwork that was replaced with PVC, and he was meticulous. I'm pretty anal when it comes to that type of stuff, and he really took the time to explain what they were quoting me for and how the work was going to be done. On top of that, they pressure washed my driveway and sidewalk. It was just a very nice extra touch. I can't say anything but positive stuff about them. They would definitely get an A, if not an A+.”
“I have used the paint service twice, and I would highly recommend them. They've painted the outside and the inside of my home. I'd give them an A rating.”
“Kenneth Axt did the work, and he subcontracted a freelancer. It was super. He said he'd be here at seven in the morning, and he was here at seven in the morning. He said he'd leave at 3:30 in the afternoon, and he did. He got it done in the time allotted, and he did a great job. I would rate Kenneth Axt as an A.”
“They did a great job. I think one of the brothers came initially to do a walk through. Their portfolio was very professional—everything was. I was impressed by the customer service. The crew that came was good, and they were very considerate of the house while going in and out and doing the work. Everything went well. There were a couple of things that stood out. I called their office, and they took care of it the next day, so I would definitely go with them again. I think I found them in Best Pick Reports. They did everything on the exterior, and they earned an A.”
“They removed the shutters. We bought new shutters that were supposed to be hung while I was away, but they had nailed the shutters into our stucco. I told Kenneth, and he took care of it. He fixed it up and did a great job. I would highly recommend him. A friend of mine was the president of a paint store, and he always used Kenneth Axt. We used him a couple years ago, and then we used someone else that we didn't think was very good. We had Kenneth do our whole house. He painted everything. I would say they deserve an A. They stepped up and took care of it when they made a mistake. They did a good job, and he had good people. They showed up on time, they were conscientious, and they cleaned up afterward.”
“I thought they were awesome. The bid was very detailed—I think it took him an hour. I think it was two pages, and I don't think he left anything undone. I had other companies come out, and it took them five or ten minutes. He took a long time, and he really looked at everything—he got his binoculars out. Right from the start, he was off on the right foot by paying attention to detail. From there on, everything else was like that. I had a lot of carpentry work done, and I think that took about a week. Everybody always showed up. They were always working the whole time. Even when they got to the painting, they were very detailed, and they did a great job. They'd get an A from me, and I don't normally give A-grades. Everybody was great—they were really, really good. I didn't have any complaints at all.”
“It took a little longer than I thought it would—not because anything they did, but because we were battling the weather. Once they were done with the outside, we were so pleased with their work that we decided to have them do some interior work. We originally had a couple of rooms done because we were going to put it on the market. We liked the work of their gold crew so much that we had them come back and complete the interior of the house. We have nothing negative to say—they were excellent painters. Both sets of painters did an excellent job, so I would use them again if I needed some additional painting. They did excellent work, and I have no complaints.”
“Kenneth W. Axt did exceptional work. They were dependable and very friendly, and they cleaned up. They did interior and exterior work. I think I found them in Best Pick Reports. I'd give them an A.”
“They were top-notch. They did exterior painting. They were actually recommended by our next-door neighbor, so it was a word of mouth referral. I would say there were absolutely no complaints—they're an A.”
“I think they did a really thorough job, and they did a very thorough job during the estimate. They identified rotten pieces of wood and things like that. There's nothing that I thought should've gone better—everything was fine. It was exterior trim painting and gutter replacement. I would give them an A+. I got Kenneth Axt out of the Best Pick Reports book.”
“Everything's fine. I'm satisfied with the porch painting—they did a great job. There's really nothing they can improve upon. I'd give them an A or an A+.”
“It went very well for me. It was all exterior work and painting. For the most part, it was painting and carpentry. I'd give them an A rating.”
“I've used that Kenneth Axt for painting. They've painted a couple times for me, and they are very good. They painted the exterior and replaced some boards on the chimney. They've done our house twice over the years. I would give them an A grade. I found out about them through Best Pick Reports.”
