Painting and Decorative Finishes

"Dear John and Brad,

I would like to thank you for sending us that letter of introduction eleven years ago. Until then Stirling Design used a great number of Paint/Paper Contractors over the years and none of them met our standards. I won't describe some of the horror stories, but suffice it to say that we would find ourselves making apologies to our clients and vowing to 'never use that one again.' I remember your emphasis in the letter on proper preparation techniques. That impressed us. Most people don't realize preparation is at least 2/3 responsible for the success of the final results. So we decided to give Everett-Kayser a try.

For eleven years we have been most impressed with your work. We recommend you to our clients knowing you will never embarrass us and that the final result will be beautiful. I've agonized at the amount of time it takes to prepare a room for paint wanting it to magically be done; but at the same time am so proud that you take that time to build the proper foundation. I've watched your men go over walls with bright lights between coats looking for imperfections. I've had your paper hanger call me from a job saying 'please come look at these seams' because they thought it might not be perfect. I love that you cheerfully come back after a job is finished if something was inadvertently missed. The men who work for you are the kind one likes having in their house; friendly, neat and on time. They take pride in their work and just beam if you notice something they are doing.

I hope you will share this letter with anyone considering your services. Best wishes to you and may your estimates all be fulfilled."

"Everett-Kayser have proven themselves to be highly professional, deeply knowledgeable about historic homes and unfailingly courteous, prompt and tidy workers who truly care about the preservation and upkeep of the entire house and not just the walls and floors. They are our first and only choice when it comes to painting and flooring of our two historic homes. I give them my highest recommendation."

"Twenty-two years ago, when we first moved to Connecticut, a realtor recommended Everett-Kayser. Through numerous projects at three different houses over the past two decades, Everett-Kayser has provided exceptional service — professional painting and finishing, exacting attention to detail, and meticulous clean-up. An added plus is Brad’s expertise with the newer, greener alternatives in paint products. Every person to whom we have recommended Everett-Kayser has been extremely pleased with their work."

"I was so impressed with your painters-they always showed up early and sat outside 'til the exact time they said they'd be here. They were very professional and friendly and did excellent work. I would hire your company again in a heartbeat and will recommend you to anyone I know that needs painters! Thanks!"

"I had a great experience with this company and continue to get compliments from family and friends about how good my house looks. The crew did an outstanding job painting both the inside and outside of my home, but it was their attention to detail that really impressed me. They were professional and took pride in their work. I felt very comfortable having them in my home, too. I am extremely satisfied."

"I am a Realtor in Fairfield County, and before I moved into my own home, I consulted Everett-Kayser. Brad met with me and, observing my furniture, patterns and fabrics, suggested a palette and finishes he felt would complement and enhance my existing decor. I was a bit timid — his suggestions were far from the 'off-white' you see over and over in spec houses. He put up patches of color I could examine in different rooms. His confidence in the final product gave me the comfort to go for it, and I love the result. I also greatly appreciated the crew — they were professional, careful and courteous. I never had to follow them around or clean up after the clean up.

In my business, I am continually asked to recommend contractors for various services, and it is with great pleasure that I recommend Everett-Kayser Decorating Contractors."

"Everett-Kayser Inc. came highly recommended. This company with their fine tuned brush strokes gave my home exactly the refreshing face lift it needed. Every inch of my 4000 sq. ft. home needed painting inside and out. What a pleasure and comfort doing business with John Kayser. I'd call him a businessman of high integrity, dignity, knowledge and professional excellence. He made it easy for me to feel confident in his capabilities. My house was not always an easy fix. Challenges would arise and John would make sure they got addressed properly. He never took shortcuts. Always had a standard of excellence that he expected of his crew which he closely supervised. And I must say all of his team were always a pleasure to deal with..... on time, did a great job, were sure to clean up at the end of each day. In addition, John used his creative sensibilities refacing my drab brick fireplace. Amazing how he transformed my living room. With strokes of washes of paint he brought new light to my bricks. In summary this company has my trust and blessings.... five stars. I thank you John, Brad and everyone you brought to work on my home."

"Everett-Kayser Inc. is the only painter we’ll use after several bad experiences with other painters. Brad and John are honest, meticulous, thorough, prompt and reasonably priced. We live near the water in Westport and they have been creative in helping us with weathering solutions. They and their crew are gracious, expert and neat. We heartily recommend them."
— P. S., Westport, CT

"Hands down Everett-Kayser, Inc. is to my mind the finest, most reliable, creative and genial painting firm in Connecticut. I cannot praise them highly enough. I’ve worked with them for over 25 years including five exterior paint jobs, one complete stripping to meet EPA standards and numerous interior renovation/restoration projects. Ours is an historic house (1835). Finding the right antique finish or tone is a must. Brad is a genius in this area hailing from a background in art. They deliver 200% and their costs are fair and competitive. You will never be sorry you employed this very talented and dedicated painting firm."
— J. P., Weston, CT

"I’ve have used Everett-Kayser for several projects now ranging from interior painting to refinishing woodwork throughout the house. I can not say enough good things about their company. I never waited long for the job to start after signing the contract, they were always prompt, the work was meticulously done and they always were very careful about cleaning up. Their prices have been consistently fair as well. I would recommend them to anyone and will certainly use them again."

"We recently moved to Connecticut and purchased a home in Trumbull. While we loved our new home, we didn’t love its condition. Years of neglect had left the exterior cedar shingles very dry and in terrible disrepair; so bad in fact that a great many of the shingles had rotted through. Everett-Kayser painted, stained, and skillfully repaired the shingles; matching them so exactly that the repairs are invisible to the eye. But just as important, the crew was on time each day and every single person on the team was professional, friendly, and very polite. We had no idea that our home could even look as good as it does now. We would not only recommend Everett-Kayser, we also are grateful to them for returning our home to a place of beauty and pride."
