More Than Just a BusinessBlue Spruce Painting and Decorating Ithaca NY


Quality Beyond Speed

Because of the years of jobs that have preceded yours, we do things as a matter of course in an efficient and productive manner. Beyond “speed,” our aim is high quality and long lasting work because that is what is most satisfying to us as craftsworkers. We know that this is what you want in your house, office or place of business. We also put great effort into an accurate assessment of costs from the beginning of a project

Customer Happiness

The satisfaction of our customers is the most fulfilling aspect to us as craftsworkers. Our reputation and success are directly related to how happy our customers are with our work. See our testimonials for a sampling of their opinions.

Community Responsibility

We have 25 years of training and expertise in the hazards of the painting and decorating business. The technology of paint materials has moved more and more to non-toxics. We have kept abreast of these developments and have learned which of the newer materials are the best performing, i.e. combining the best of both worlds.
Although these new materials are non-toxic, the paint on older buildings is usually not. It takes skill and training to prepare old surfaces safely for repainting. Our company is EPA Lead-Safe Certified (Section 402 Toxic Substances Control Act). Starting April 22, 2010 no company which is not certified can legally renovate lead painted surfaces. We also do all OSHA required training re: lead paint, scaffolding, and respirator wear.
