Smith and Gesteland

Tom's Painting has stained the siding and trim on our house on two separate occasions. I found his work to be of the highest quality and to be professional and reliable. He provided me with a firm price before starting the work as well as an expected date that he would be able to complete the job. He showed up when promised and completed the job very quickly. His work was very neat and thorough. He also made good recommendations on the product and application methods that would work best in our situation. I would highly recommend Tom's Painting to anyone looking for a quality painting contractor.

We are happy to recommend Tom's Painting to you and we do so without reservations. Our family was greatly pleased with the outstanding quality of his work. He responded promptly to our request for an estimate. He offered a very fair price and held to this. He did thorough surface preparation, protected our windows, fixtures and plants perfectly and cleaned up at the end of each working day. He went over his work and touched up where needed. He was always pleasant in his interactions with us and he was respectful of our neighbors. In short, he was absolutely professional and we will definitely look to him in the future.

This letter is to highly recommend to you Mr. Tom Hintz. We base our recommendation on the experience we had with Tom during the Summer of 1993. He undertook the job of painting all the trimming of our red-brick house, including all the storm windows. He did an outstanding job, well within the time limits and, to top it all, did so in our absence, while we were out of the country.

We should point out that although we received six lower bids than the one presented by Mr. Hintz, we chose him since we felt that his approach was the most professional of all, because he was the most knowledgeable and because he saw subtle details that other people did not take into consideration at all and that could have cost us more money in the end if they had not been fixed. Mr. Hintz is a professional who you could trust under any conditions. We recommend him highly. If you need to contact us, please feel free to do so.

Tom Hintz painted our house in the spring of 1989 and sealed our driveway in the summer of 1992. The work performed by Tom, in our opinion, was very good. He was prompt, careful, and seemed truly concerned with making our home look good. I have recommended him to friends in the past and would not hesitate to recommend him to anyone looking for someone to paint their home.

After the first few times Tom painted for me, I knew I could trust the quality of the work. It was not sloppy. There was no mess left behind. Furniture, carpeting, woodwork were all well protected. He worked long hours to finish promptly. He was courteous and cheerful and entirely trustworthy. On one occasion, when the exterior trim was being painted and all the windows had to be kept open to allow the paint to dry, Tom waited till I got home from work so as not to compromise the safety of the house.

You can tell 'em for me you do good work and are a man of your word.

That observation stems both from our personal experience with your repainting of the entire exterior trim of our home last year and also from reports we've had from our daughter Mary Yeager, the exterior of whose two-story white frame colonial home you redid completely, and from our daughter Maureen, whose frame home you also renovated earlier. In addition, the occasion of my retirement dinner from the board of M&I Madison Bank July 28 elicited unsolicited enthusiastic endorsement of your capability by Dave Mergen, Chairman of the Board.

I would recommend Tom to anyone who may be considering him for any type of painting. The quality and dependability of his work have been nothing short of excellent. We have recommended him without concern to others throughout our neighborhood.

Daniel Hyland

Tom Hintz has done major interior and exterior painting for our family over the past eight years. We have always found his work to be outstanding and at competitive prices and as a result have recommended his company to friends and neighbors. Tom has been extremely considerate of our personal property while taking great pride in the work he was performing. In addition we have felt comfortable working with Tom based on his straight forward and honest approach - a characteristic not found very often today.

Tom Hintz painted the outside of our home and garage in Madison. We were very impressed. They did an excellent job of power washing, scraping, glazing, painting large areas, painting trim, and cleaning up. He was courteous, began the job on the appointed date, always consulted with us as to exactly what we wanted, and finished on time and within budget. Most importantly, our home looks beautiful today, over a year later!

We had our house painted by Tom's Painting in October of 1995 and are completely happy with the results of the job. Tom was prompt and courteous, neat and did an excellent job of cleaning up. I would highly recommend Tom's Painting to any potential client.

We thank Tom Hintz for making our house look like new. Believe me, it looked terrible before he appeared on the scene! In addition to years of sun damage, our cedar siding was black in places from moisture absorption - a problem on wooded lots. Tom advised us as to what treatments would damage the wood or plants around the house and what could be done to achieve a great look with a minimum of environmental effect. Now it not only looks great, but he has applied a product that should minimize the kind of damage we've experienced in the past as we go forward.

Ellie and Paul Schatz

We love the look of our newly painted home. The color was a big change for us and Tom's Painting delivered exactly what he promised! He was efficient and highly skilled as he painted the siding and trim on our colonial home. Now, neighbors compliment us as they stroll through the neighborhood. We'd hire him again in a heartbeat!

Ann Hoffmeister

We are writing this endorsement on behalf of Mr. Tom Hintz, affectionately known as "Tom, the Painter." Tom has been part of our lives for over twelve years. Tom han stained and painted our custom home in the Cherrywood subdivision of the Town of Middleton four times over the years. In addition, he has painted the 100 year old home of our son and daughter-in-law in Mount Horeb. We have been so very pleased with his professionalism, quality of materials, clean-up and work ethic, that we even went as far as having Tom stain our cottage up north, allowing him to stay there overnight until the job was complete.

Each time, Tom proved that he was honest and hard-working, leaving us with a finished product about which we could be very proud. All of our neighbors wanted to know, "Who painted your home?" We have given many friends and neighbors Tom's card. We encourage anyone who wants a "top shelf" painting/staining job to contact Torn for his services. It is without reservation that we recommend Tom and will most certainly have him dress up our home in the future when needed.

M&I Madison Bank

After careful research and reference checking, we chose to have Tom's Painting paint our house. Tom's preplanning and careful preparation of all surfaces, the attention to detail in quality of paint products and workmanship and attentiveness to our landscaping, neighbors etc, was noteworthy. We would recommend Tom's Painting to you and suggest that he is someone to be consulted about the other services his firm offers too. We are very pleased and have received many positive compliments on the job which was accomplished with excellent timing and results.

Chairman of the Board, M&I Madison Bank

Having studied Interior Design in college and having been involved in a number of projects, both new construction and remodeling, I have had a great deal of contact with many contractors in a variety of trades. I have no reservations in stating that our experience with you was equal to the best I have encountered.

Your approach and performance were both professional and thorough. Before beginning the project you explained each step and the reasons for them and asked questions so that you understood our goals. When Tom came on site he started by protecting the landscaping, concrete and masonry surfaces. He then thoroughly prepped all surfaces to be painted or stained and power-washed the house after covering windows and brick surfaces with plastic and tape. The house then received two spray coats of stain and the trim and accents were brushed on.

After clean-up and touch up, the site was returned to its original condition. The highest praise that I can think of for any contractor is "you completed the job expeditiously (4 days on site) and you accomplished the job exactly as you described it up front". Please accept our thanks for an excellent outcome.
