Testimonials

watercolor_house“Tom, and his crew, repaired, renovated, painted and in one case papered, five rooms and a stairwell in our old farm house. In his calm and patient way, Tom helped me sort through the overwhelming numbers of colors and paper patterns and possibilities, and ultimately, to choose ones that have brought our house to life! This process, which could very well have been both maddening and anxiety-provoking, proved to be both fun and gratifying with his steady support and guidance. Two years after the fact, we still love the changes we made and that Tom fostered.”

“Blue Spruce papered a bedroom, stairwell, upper and lower hall, entry and kitchen for us. Our house is old, and the walls and corners are uneven. They did a masterful job of preparation, stripping, filling and spackling, and the paperhanging was superb, beautifully matched. Tom and his guys are a pleasure to have around: they are quick, neat and cheerful.”

“We keep choosing Blue Spruce for all the painting and carpentry jobs at our Historic Register home. Decorative painting on the interior walls especially gets many compliments. We are also pleased that all the “rainbow” co-workers receive real living wages.”
