“Nolan Painting far exceeded my expectations. All the peeling paint was meticulously scraped. My crew leader has excellent painting skills and superb people skills; a pleasure to work with—A+.”
“I was most certainly impressed. The employees were most professional and focused on performing the job with great care. You could tell they loved their job. I am exceptionally pleased.”
“Nolan Painting is one of the best contractors we have ever retained. They performed very high-quality work, cleaned up thoroughly, and exceeded expectations. We will use them for all future projects. They earned an A+ in every respect.”
“The crew did a spectacular job and were awesome to have on the job. I would recommend Nolan to anyone who asks without any hesitation.”
“Very helpful picking paint colors, easy to schedule, team arrived on time, very positive experience with them. I work from home so it was important that I have quiet which they respected. Set up, painted, cleaned up in a very professional manner.”
“Professional, quick, courteous, timely. All the things you want when you hire professionals. Being a new homeowner and a business owner myself, I've been shocked at the lack of professionalism out there in the contractor world. Nolan Painting and their employees were a breath of fresh air.”
“This was an outstanding experience with a contractor. The time did exactly what they said which was to transform an aging room with the typical aging issues into a younger version of itself.”
“I loved how flexible and accommodating the scheduling staff were.”
“Reliable, professional, punctual. Good bunch of people to boot.”
“Terrific people with which to work. Very attentive to customer satisfaction. Regular meetings with multiple levels of managers. Excellent experience. Would unconditionally recommend Nolan Painting.”
“The work was performed only after careful consideration of all of the other trades and a constant reminder that the finish must be neat and clean, and it was. This was my first time using Nolan Painting and I would highly recommend them for any level of finish.”
“Great work. We've used Nolan for both interior and exterior work. All well done with great crews.”
“You do not need to go anywhere else.”
“Nolan Painting had just painted my parents new house so that is how I was referred and I will refer anyone looking for painters to Nolan. Every single person I dealt with was incredibly helpful and nice. They made the stressful process of selling and buying much easier and I will always go back to Nolan in the future!”
“This is an old house and they found some unexpected issues while working here, but worked through them and did a good job.”
“Professional, attentive, providing someone to help with color was a great bonus to get color right the first time.”
“From start to finish it was a pleasure doing business with Nolan painting. They did a beautiful job.”
“Everything was good. The people were nice to deal with, worked efficiently, and did everything just right. The paint crew even made some suggestions on the fly that we wouldn't have thought of, which made the paint job even better. (Changed the color of a small transition wall.) I can't imagine how they could have done better.”
“Nolan painting provided a wonderful experience from initial scheduling to the finished product. It was a pleasure to have them work at my home.”
“Great work.”
“They were on time, very clean, & did a fabulous job!”
“Great job, I expect it to last.”
“The job was very small, a new bathroom, but the level of service was what I would have expected were we doing the whole house. A color consultant came to our home at no additional charge and made an excellent recommendation. It is very hard to see how color will work in a small space.”
“Nolan's provides excellent services using quality products. Everyone from office to the painters are friendly, courteous, understanding, and professional. I highly recommend them.”

“The estimator and the workers were very professional and accommodating.”
“Overall Experience with Nolan Painting was excellent. Everyone was extremely helpful and professional - the estimator, project manager, color consultant to the painters. The painting team worked with me to manage the schedule of what would be painted when to minimize the inconvenience as my entire inside of my house was being painted. They took care to make sure that my floors and furniture were well covered and did an excellent job of cleaning up after a room was finished. The crown molding work was excellent as well.”
“It was a pleasure dealing with Nolan Painting, from the estimate through the final payment. I have nothing to complain about.”
“Family-run business that keeps the customer at the center of the 'job.' They were focused on customer satisfaction as much as getting the actual job (painting and carpentry work) done. Our older home was 'new' again simply because of the time and effort they invested in our project. Great people both personally and professionally!”

“Wonderful experience.”
“We couldn't be happier. The whole experience was stress free. The painters were friendly and dedicated to doing a great job.”

“Nolan has done several jobs for us. High quality work.”
“They were great.”
“The entire crew was very professional and did an excellent job on our 100 year old, 3 story home. Ali, the project manager, was fabulous. Always super responsive to our questions and even helped pick out the colors! We are planning on using them again soon and have already recommended them to neighbors who stop to admire the new paint job.”
“Paint work was completed on schedule and work area left neat and orderly. The bathroom was wallpapered. This job was perfect. I could not find a seam or imperfection on any of the walls. Over my many years I have had numerous rooms papered and never had a job so perfect as this one. It was a A+++.”
“I was very happy with every aspect of Nolan Painting from my initial contact (meeting with Nolan Painting for an estimate) to the day to day of the workers doing the actual painting. The workers were very courteous and they made it a point to clean up everyday before they left at the end of their day. They worked hard each day and were conscious of getting the job done when promised. I would certainly use them again and would feel confident recommending them to my family and friends.”

“Professional from start to finish.”
“They are simply the best - competent, caring, and clean-up experts.”
“Very pleased with the initial work (quality was top notch, workers were very friendly and clean, and they were incredibly fast). We asked for some warranty work a year later as well, and the workers were incredibly knowledgeable and helpful solving the issue. They then went above and beyond by doing more work than we had asked them to do. Extremely pleased with the entire process from initial estimates by Jon Meyer, color consultations with the on-staff designer, the job itself, and then post-completion follow through.”
“Fabulous job, family owned business, very friendly.”
“My directions got changed when a daughter added her opinion. My previous experience has been totally satisfactory.”
“Friendly workers. Had to redo a door and touch up areas. This was corrected along with a few other cliches that were resolved.”
“The salesman and the interior designer were both very professional and very helpful. The work was done completely and cleanly, and ahead of schedule. I plan on using them again in the future.”
“Professional work.”
“Last year, Nolan Painting repaired and painted shutters, put some shutter doors in, and did some other little touch-up painting things. It seems to be looking and working well. I'd give them an A grade for their excellent work—no complaints.”
“Nolan Painting painted a couple rooms, and we have no complaints—their customer service was good, and we would have them again. They were excellent—it's an A from us.”
“They painted several rooms, and I'd say everything was pretty excellent. I would give them an A.”
“The quality of work was excellent. They deserve an A grade.”
“They painted a few rooms for me. I feel good about their customer service. It's not amazing—some of the initial communication was kind of slow—but it's pretty good. I'd say an A- sums it up.”
“They were on time, they were clean, and the work was well done. We had the entire first floor and then the upstairs hallway painted. Their customer service was very good—they were always on time and very clean. I chose them because they are local to our town. If I graded them, I'd say they're A to A+.”
“They did the work they were supposed to do in the time they were supposed to do it, and they did it well. They patched, repaired, and painted a ceiling in our kitchen. Their customer service was very good. They were timely and responsive. We've been repeat customers of theirs for about fifteen years, and we've never had a problem. Whenever we did, they came out and fixed it, so we continue to use Nolan Painting for all of our household painting needs. I'll give them an A grade.”
“Nolan Painting painted the exterior of my house. I thought their customer service was good.”
“What I liked about Nolan Painting was that I thought you could approach them. If you had any questions, they were responsive and would hear you out. It wasn't like you couldn't get ahold of them when they finished, so their customer service was good. They did the outside of the house, and I thought it was good. I'd call it A-grade work. ”
“Nolan Painting painted a lot of rooms in my house. They were all really sweet, really nice, very clean, and neat. I would totally recommend them. I'll give them A for everything—they were a great bunch of guys.”
“Nolan Painting painted several rooms in my house, and they did good work for me. It was a really positive experience.”
“Nolan Painting painted the entire inside of our house. It was a very big job, but they were very easy to work with. They had to work with our contractor and some other independent contractors that weren't on their crew, but they were very agreeable, and they worked around our schedule. I chose them because the company we had used for other jobs merged with Nolan Painting, so I felt like I was in good hands. I'd grade my experience A- overall.”
“We are very happy with Nolan Painting, and I would recommend them to anybody. They painted the interior of our house, and I'd give them a triple-A, star, and everything you could possibly say. I liked the paint—the colors—and the people were very nice. Everybody was helping, and they did a great job. Everything was fine. I chose them through a recommendation.”
“Nolan Painting was fabulous—I recommend them to everyone. They're very conscientious, polite, neat, and professional. I was happy to have them in my house. They were great. They provide a very high quality of service—A+.”
“Nolan is fantastic. They have painted our front door, our garage door, and the inside of our house. Their customer service was excellent, and the work is holding up very well. I recommend them highly. I'd give them an A.”
“Nolan is amazing. It was very extensive work, and it was top quality—first class. I'd give them an A+ for their amazing work.”
“Nolan painted the walls of one room, and they were very pleasant. The customer service was fantastic. They were extremely tidy, they were timely, and they answered all my questions exactly. I'd give them an A+, absolutely.”
“We've used Nolan Painting before, and we like the quality of work that they do. Their crew was professional and polite. There were no issues at all—they cleaned up after themselves, and they did an excellent job. They did some spackling and touch-up work, and they painted an entire room. Their customer service was fine. I would highly recommend the company. They deserve an A+.”
“The people from Nolan Painting were excellent. They came when they said they were going to, and they did exactly what they said they were going to do. They were very helpful, the work was very well done, and their customer service was excellent. Everything together made it excellent—the timeliness, the follow-up, and their responsiveness when I called. I chose them because friends of mine had used them and recommended them highly. I'd give them an A+.”
“They were wonderful. Nolan Painting painted a room. It was very basic painting work, but they were great. I've had them before, and I'd go back to them. I'd rate them highly—A. I have no complaints. They did what I wanted, they did it on time, they did it neatly, and they did it well.”
“I've used Nolan Painting for ten years—they are fantastic. They've done interior painting, they have repaired the deck with their carpenters, and they have done deck painting for me as well. They're really super. I would give the company an A.”
“I like that Nolan Painting is well organized. They start the job when they say they're going to start the job—weather permitting. This was outdoor painting, and the week they told me they'd start, they started. Their crew of painters is professional and friendly, and they check with you if they have a question about something. The owner of the company, Kevin Nolan, is extremely professional, and so is the office staff when you talk to them on the phone. If they say they're going to call you back, they call you back or email you. They keep you informed, and they do a good job of painting. I've used them since 2000 or 2001. This is the third time they have done outdoor painting for me, so the fact that I've had them back says that their jobs hold up well. I live in an old house—when I say old, my house was built around 1900—and it's the original wood. The most recent painting they did for me was on an outbuilding on my property, a combination garage-workshop-storage building, and they manage to keep it looking nice. I'd give them an A+.”
“We hire Nolan Painting all the time. The way they go about scheduling all the preliminary work is always very organized and very respectful of our time. Then, right before the job begins, there are always reminders to help the busy person be successful. Nolan Painting painted the ceiling in my dining room last October. I can't remember what else they've done because we've hired them so many times. The customer service is always spot-on—it's always stellar. First and foremost, I chose them because they're local. We like to support people in our own town. Secondly, we had one job done, and it was amazing, so we've become repeat customers. They've earned an A+, absolutely.”
“We had a serious water leak that the plumbers repaired, and after they repaired it, there was a lot of damage to the walls and the ceiling. Nolan Painting was literally was able to come in in 48 hours, repair all the damage, paint it, and make it look like it never happened. Their customer service was excellent. I've used them for years—they've done a lot of work for me and for people who have recommended them to me—and I've had a positive experience with them. I wouldn't use anybody else—A+.”
“Nolan Painting painted the interior of the house. They were extremely efficient, clean, and neat—they took pride in their work. They were pleasant, they followed up, and they showed up when they said they would. They are just a very professional organization. It's an A+ service.”
“They did the kitchen and dining room—the quality and the speed made my experience with them positive. Their customer service was excellent. They're friendly, they're neat, and they clean up after themselves. I'd call it A-grade work.”
“I chose Nolan Painting because I know they do great work. They painted the interior of my house, and it was great—they showed up on time, did it on time, and cleaned up when they were done. Their customer service was great. I'd give them an A.”
