We have been in business at Don Foote Contracting for 20 years, doing high end remodeling, cabinetry and additions. It was my pleasure to find Walsh Painting 5 years ago. In the last 5 years, on 50 plus jobs, Steve and his crew have exceeded our expectations consistently. They are polite, clean, organized, non-smokers, and more importantly, excellent craftsman.

Painting is not a trade normally thought of as a “craft” but Steve and his crew bring that mentality to their work. As a builder, I know that the painter can make or break your job- they are the last trade through, and they will make a well done job look great, and a poor job look acceptable. I defy you to find a painter who preps as completely and conscientiously as Steve’s crew.

I never worry about recommending Steve to clients- his work speaks for itself, and everyone is happy with it. If you are looking for high quality and honesty, look no further.

I have worked with Stephen Walsh and his crew at Walsh Painting for over ten years now and I have always recommended his company to clients because of the professional job he provides. 

Stephen can always be counted on to do last minute commercial move-in painting projects, working around the clock to get the work done without compromising quality.  No request is too difficult for Stephen, from painting an electrical conduit to match the surrounding brick wall to working inside a school while classes were still in session.

Stephen brings a huge depth of knowledge of the materials he is working with and their proper application, never painting in the wrong weather conditions.  I am so confident with his craftsmanship that I have hired Walsh Painting for my own home. 

I consider the crew of Walsh Painting exceptional and Stephen an exceptionally talented individual. All of Stephen’s work for my clients is on display at http://www.harborplanning.com/.

We were introduced to Walsh Painting through a general contractor when our house was undergoing renovation work. In addition to painting walls and ceilings, the Walsh crew took great care with the substantial amount of trim. The quality of the workmanship of the painters and their professionalism contributed to an outstanding product. We regularly receive compliments about how good the house looks–and one of the chief reasons is the quality of the painting. Since then, we have hired Walsh Painting directly, and plan to do so for any painting needs in the future.

Walsh Painting did all the interior paintings in our Arlington, MA house during the spring of 2009. They did an amazing job: fast, efficient and the result matched our highest expectations. The quality/cost rate is great and the crew was very friendly and professional. We would definitely recommend Walsh Painting to anybody who needs a painting company.

We hired Stephen Walsh to paint the interior of our more than 100-year-old house. We found him and his crew to be professional, conscientious and very hard working, getting the job done on schedule. When we needed to paint our exterior two years later we new we definitely wanted to work with Stephen again. On both jobs we were very impressed with the extremely high level of professionalism. We plan to hire Stephen for any future jobs and would recommend him to friends or family.

The Walsh Painting Co. painted a few rooms for me last year. I found them very clear and competitive in their estimate, careful in their work, and neat in their clean-up afterwards. The painters were polite and hard-working. I would have no hesitation in having them return to my house for another job.
