Hi Rick,

It’s been just about 14 months since Bluenote painted our house. I still admire the professionalism of your paint staff when I occasionally do a walk around to see how the paint is holding up. It really was and still is a superb job and reflects the quality of the completed work.

No particular reason for sending this note other than to acknowledge a year later that I remain very pleased with my selection of a painting service and I am a very satisfied customer.

Hi Rick,

I can’t say enough about the great experience we’ve had with you and your crew. Keeping us updated on schedule changes shows that you are a true professional who cares about his customers and understands that they have schedules to maintain as well. We find that most businesses are disorganized and the work product suffers as well. You run a very professional highly functioning business that really delivers.

The crew was awesome too. The guy who did the power washing was very nice and a hard worker. I can’t believe he was able to do it all by himself. We didn’t have a chance to meet the crew that did the caulking. Daniel and Nacho took great care to mask everything perfectly which resulted in clean lines. I was so impressed when they removed the gasket around the French doors before painting, they really did it the right way, no shortcuts. The house looks brand new.

We have never been happier with anyone we have hired to work on our home. We will definitely be having you paint the interior of the house in a year or two. We will give you all the referrals we can.

Hi Rick,

Bluenote painted the interior and exterior of my home within the past 6 months and they did an excellent job. The quality of their work is top-notch, they are fast, efficient and polite. Owner Rick Thomas is easy to communicate with and the crew onsite checked in with me each morning, did a walk through with me when they were done and fixed any areas I had concerns about. I highly recommend Bluenote for your painting needs. On top of all that, a 10-year warranty.

Dear Rick,
Excellent Service And Beautifully Completed Ceiling Repairs

The entire experience with Bluenote Painting Company was incredibly pleasant. The project was painless and the crew led by Juan was polite, professional and completed the job beautifully in less than 2 days. The crew came when they said they would and prepared my home for the project protecting my hardwood floors and cleaning up afterwards leaving absolutely no mess behind. I was so happy with the quality of their work I plan to use them again for any painting, ceiling or drywall repairs in the future. I had a bad experience with another painting company in the past, so I was pleasantly surprised by the professionalism of the BlueNote Painting team. This company really treats their customers and their homes with TLC and their quality and workmanship was outstanding!

Dear Rick,

The job looks very good and you have a dedicated and organized crew. We are putting three gift cards in the envelope also and could you give them to the three main guys that were here most all the week. Thank you also for coming this morning to look over the job. We appreciate your professional attitude and employees!

I wanted to let you and the paint crew know how excited I am with the job and their work. You really do have a good crew of guys. I have to admit that I was a tad nervous Wednesday morning… As you are more familiar than I – the prep work takes longer and things don’t look so pretty during that part of the process. But Wednesday afternoon when the paint was applied to the trim work I got a good view of what was to come. Yesterday – with the wall color mostly applied and the job coming together – both my husband and I are very happy with it. Thank you for your conscientiousness and expertise.

Holy cow! You clearly sent the most skilled craftsmen in the business. Not just that, Juan and his team are so interested in the customer’s happiness and satisfaction that Juan frequently showed me what they were doing as it was happening and asked for my blessing on the different elements that made up this project. They would not have moved on to the next thing without my approval. They were diligent, thorough and performed their work with the greatest attitudes. I couldn’t have asked for a better experience. I could hardly wait for Julie to get home from work so that I could show her the finished product. She is as thrilled as I am.

I don’t know where you find these men, but you are very good at identifying them. You certainly go to extra measures to keep them, as well. It’s hard enough to find them, but even harder to keep them. Thank you, Rick!

Hi Rick,
Just a quick message to let you know how happy I am with the exterior paint job. It is a very windy/rainy day and the peace that comes with knowing my home is so well protected is priceless.

They were GREAT! Efficient, professional and did exactly what I asked… I’m very pleased.

Thanks so much!

Hi Rick,

I’d like to thank you and your crew for the great job you completed for me. The crew arrived on time, communication was clear, work areas were left clean and work quality was excellent. A fine job was done replacing the deck facing board that had dry rot. It’s a great relief to have this project completed before Winter weather sets in.

Hi Rick,

I wanted you to know I am very pleased in every way with the painting.  Your crew were very efficient and were able to get the job done in one day, which was great.  They did all steps quickly and cleanly.  They were very polite and easy to have in my home.  When they were finished they left everything clean and checked to make sure I was completely satisfied.  Even though everything was put away they were happy to get a paint brush back out to touch up an area I requested (it was not their error, it was something from previous paint job).  Thank you also for using the paint brand I requested, I am very happy with the color.

Thank you very much!

Bluenote Painting has been a pure pleasure to work with.  From our first meeting with owner, Rick, to the last bit of clean up, we having nothing but great reviews for him and his crew.  All our furniture was moved with great care and skill, covering everything with protective plastic and paper.  Since we had our entire house painted, it was quite an undertaking to say the least.  The guys made it as bearable as possible with consideration to us and skill in their painting abilities.  We never felt overwhelmed with the process, each room was handled in an orderly and timely fashion.  The paint job came out beautifully due to the expertise of the painters and we will no doubt have them back for our next painting project!

What a beautiful transformation!  Our living room looks amazing.  We were so pleased with the workers, so professional, always friendly and on time.  All of the process went smoothly and trouble free.  Highly recommend.

Wonderfully professional company. Juan provided excellent onsite service. I really appreciated their flexibility because a remodel job took longer than expected which required several changes in the painting schedule. Rick took it all in stride and completed our job in a very timely manner. Definitely recommend this painting contractor.

Dear Rick,

We want to let you know how happy we are about the painting of our house. Your crew headed by Juan were very professional. They were here when they said they would be, they were very good about helping us with color, cleaned up after they were done and out of here in a timely manner. They were more than accommodating and pleasant to work with. We highly recommend your company and will certainly keep you in mind for any of our painting projects in the future.

Thank you,

I was very impressed with the Bluenote painters that came to my home. They have been very friendly, accommodating, helpful, quiet and professional. I don’t usually write reviews but they were really outstanding and deserve the kudos. I am the renter (the landlord is paying!) but having someone in/around your home for 3-4 days could be trying. These guys really have been wonderful. I highly recommend this company. Great job…and the house looks fantastic!

We want to let you know that we have thoroughly enjoyed having the guys with us.  They are very professional and take great care doing their work.  We would adopt them if they would let us!
We will certainly let you know when we need painting again and will gladly recommend Bluenote to folks whenever the opportunity arises.  As always, it is a pleasure working with you.

Kay & John


I can’t say enough about your crew.  They are just great.  They are professional, cheerful, polite, accommodating, and they do really, really good work.  Yes, you are lucky to have them.  Thanks so much for getting them out there this week.  It feels wonderful to have that part of this journey behind us.

I have contracted a lot of work in my life, and you are the most responsive person I have ever worked with. Thank you!!!! It means a lot to me.


Thanks again for doing such a beautiful job. More importantly, thanks for making the process so seamless and smooth. I was a bit nervous about the whole process in the beginning, but your crew did a fabulous job and gained my confidence & trust in them. They were very courteous and professional throughout the entire process and Juan made me feel like I was in good hands.

I’d be more than happy to refer your company to anybody who is looking to paint their homes.

Take care,


Hi Rick,

I just wanted to tell you, on behalf of my wife and myself that we are very pleased with the results of the painting project by your crew, John and Jose. Not only was the job done in a timely manner but John was very accommodating for our needs as well. He’s also quite a story teller! The quality of the finished job is very high and we are happy with these results. You were very helpful to me as well, answering any and all questions. I’m very glad we went with your bid. Great job by all. Thank you.

Kent and Holly Warner

Thank you Rick for a great paining experience! I’ll definitely recommend your company to my friends & family. Your paining staff (Big John) was incredible & very professional. He did a fantastic job & cleaned up everything, even little pieces of paper! I loved that he sent pic’s to me via email on the progress of the painting & I was impressed at their thoughtfulness to cover my garden, so paint wouldn’t be on my veggies! Who else would do that???

Thanks again,

Anna D.

Hi Rick,

I really appreciate Juan and his crew. They were conscientious about doing a good job at every point.

I want to thank you also, for your patience with all of my emails to you leading up to this.

We will definitely keep Bluenote in mind for any future painting jobs we might have, and will not hesitate to recommend you to others.

Thanks again,

Lloyd W.
