We’re always pleased to hear back from our customers. Most of our business comes from word-of-mouth advertising and recommendations from satisfied customers. Here are some examples of what our customers are saying about us:

We are extremely pleased and totally satisfied with the work which you did for us. Not only was it accomplished in a most expeditious and professional manner, but your entire approach in performing the service – the personal consideration and cooperative attitude that you extended to us – and the obvious pride that you take in your work were so refreshing and very much appreciated. The house looks great, thanks to you and your crew, and we will gladly give you full credit and recommend your company to our friends.

We are so pleased with the quality of the paint job performed on the exterior of our house in June. I was happy to inspect the work in July upon my return and find no flaws at all; rather, much evidence that you performed in excess of what was required.

S. T., Springfield, VA

[We] thank you for the fine job done by you and your company. You probably know this, but don’t hear it often enought – your hard work and integrity shie through and it is an honor and pleasure for us to work with you.

I am now approaching my 77th birthday and I mention this to inform you that I remember will when pride in workmanship was a rather commone virtue in America. Unfortunately, I feel that is has become rather rare and even though the cost of work performed has and continues to rise, the quality of work has not.

However there are exceptions and when you find professionals such as yourself wo do take much pride in their work it is indeed, gratifying.

We have lived in this house for 31 years and have had it painted three times by presumable professionals… Your contracts (inside last fall and outside last May) showed me the kind of work that a real [emphasis in original] professional painter can do.

Both you and your assistant, Gene Thompson, performed an outstanding job on both the interior and exterior of our house. Your attention to detail; the thououghness with which you do your work; and most of all the obvious pride that you both take in doing a job right brought very obvious results. [We] are extremely satisfied with work that you did for us.

Believe me when I say that everyone I know who is thinking about getting some painting work wil get a very strong recommendation from me to contact Spicer Contracting.

Thank you for your efforts and keep up the wonderful work that you do.

[Note from John Spicer: The letter, above, was written in June, 1994. Even though it’s been a long time, I’ve included it because (1) Gene Thompson is still working with us, which is remarkable in this age of rapid job shifting and is a testiment to Gene and the work he does, and (2) I’d like to think that what was said about Spicer Contracting back in 1994 still holds true today.]

You and your men are to be commended not only for your quality prep and painting, but also for the friendly, cooperative attitudes you broght to work each cay and the orderly, neat work environment you maintained. Our job required som tough, exhausting work before paint could be applied, but that didn’t seem to dampen your spirits one bit and certainly didn’t affect your overall positive work ethic. You were all a pleasure to spend the week with.

The house looks beautiful and we thank you for making it so. You can be sure we will recommend you to any and all who are in the market for a pint job. An you’ll be hearing from us again the next time around.
