What people say?

Dear John, I am so pleased with the quality and the service of the recent work that was done to the exterior and interior of my home. I have lived all over the USA and have had many painters over many years. I have had some 'okay' experiences and some bad experiences with various painters. The mere thought of having to have any painting done was a dreaded one. I have never had such a pleasant experience with painting/painters than with RiverKing. They painted my house as if it was their own; the care that they demonstrated was outstanding. They were professional, neat, organized, and did small things that they did not have to do. They cleaned up everything and left it as they found it. This was very impressive! This crew gets an A+ from me. I would recommend your company to anyone. It is rare in today's world to get such quality service. My first experience with your company was very good!

I have been doing business with John Stehmeyer for many years. I consider him to be a friend. John has always provided good service at fair prices. Additionally, he is very professional in all his dealings. I recommend John to all my clients without hesitation, knowing they will be satisfied with the results. I highly recommend RiverKing Painting and I am assured that they will be pleased with the company.

Dear John: I just wanted to let you know that we were once again completely satisfied with the price, quality of work, and on time performance of your company. Whether it is work on our home, office building, or rental properties. you always come through with competitive pricing, quality workmanship and timely performance. Since we have used your company numerous times over the last 10 years. I believe I can speak with a great deal of authority on your company's performance. The last job involved six tenant move outs with move out dates all the same. This represented 75% of our rental properties so it was critical that the work orders be completed on time as promised since all the units had tenants moving in. Your ability to get the job done timely was critical and you accomplished all our goals once again. Thanks John for getting the job done once again. We don't know why anyone would go anywhere else. Thanks Again!!!

Over the last five years I have contracted with RiverKing Custom Painting for several jobs. The work was outstanding for both my residential and commercial jobs. They are conscientious about the workmanship, as well as maintaining the job site in a neat and orderly manner. I would use John Stehmeyer for other jobs in the future. I will, and have, recommended them to friends and clients.

I needed some painting done on a few of my rental properties and asked a friend who they suggest I use. RiverKing Custom Painting was the response. I am so glad I asked. John came to give me an estimate and understood why he was recommended. He genuinely cared about my properties and I received a typed quote the next day. I hired him right away and never regretted the decision. The painters were courteous, knowledgeable, and punctual! I extended our working relationship to my home as well. I enjoy working with John and will continue to use RiverKing Custom Painting.
Collins Construction Company
I would like to express to you my complete satisfaction with the service your company provided to our most recent painting project. You and your employees approached the job with a professionalism that is not often found in the industry. After several disappointing experiences with painters, I didn't hold out much hope that we would ever find a company that combined excellent and reliable painters at a fair price. RiverKing Custom Painting met that high expectation and I would readily recommend your company to anyone who has a painting need. Your painters always arrived when they were scheduled to arrive, were courteous and obviously skilled at their trade. They took pride in their work and always cleaned up their workspace before leaving for the day. They also managed to figure out the correct stain to put on our threshold to prevent wear and tear-something three previous painters were unable to solve. Thank you and your employees for a job well done. We look forward to calling on you for future painting needs.

John, This is just a short note of appreciation and recommendation for the fantastic pressure washing & painting that your company RiverKing Custom Painting did earlier this year to our home.it was really a pleasure to get the quotes via e-mail with everything item listed that was going to be cleaned, pressure washed, painted, or cleaned up. All of the employees were on time, very courteous & helpful while they were working at our home...and after the work was complete it was very nice to get a call from the owner making sure everything was done correctly (that is extremely rare today). Finally, everything that RiverKing Custom Painting did this summer was done so well that I would always recommend your company to anyone that needs any painting done..plus I am sure that we will have you back to our home for more painting in the future.
We needed our home pressure-washed last year and RiverKing Custom Painting did an amazing job! To me, the worst problem area was the screened-in patio. We were afraid to clean the screen walls- (applying too much pressure, etc). I was amazed when RiverKing did that for us too-it looks brand new!!! On another occasion, RiverKing restored our circa 60's ornate ironwork columns out front. They needed the pitting and rust removed as well as repainting. They look fantastic. RiverKing Custom Painting is the best! Their staff is so nice and very professional. They do such beautiful work-and so quickly too!

The painters not only did and excellent job painting, but also worked in a very professional manner. Certainly, you can use me as a reference with this email and the previous email. Previous Email: Your men finished painting the wood work around our garage. Just wanted to tell you that RiverKing Custom Painting did an excellent job- looks great. We will recommend your company highly.

I have known John for nearly four years, after meeting in a life group at church. Over the years I have had opportunities to spend time with John through church events as well as other places. He is a man you can count on to be ethical, fair, and professional anytime you have dealings with him. He is a pleasure to be around socially and on several occasions has demonstrated himself as a man of integrity and abundant generosity. John is very active in church and I know can be counted on when a "servant" is needed. I consider it a blessing to have him as a friend.
Hugh Buerke
Having been a house painter in a former life, I have a critical eye for a quality paint job. After seeing a RiverKing Custom Painting job, I knew I had found a company that would produce a quality product. John and I have known each other for many years and I have referred him to numerous clients and friends. He and his staff consistently produce a quality work product at competitive prices.
Matt Ryan
I would not hesitate to recommend RiverKing Custom Painting to my friends. I called several painting outfits and selected RiverKing Custom Painting because they were the most responsive, courteous, and professional. They even assisted me in finding someone to do repairs that were necessary before painting could begin. I am pleased with how my house looks now, and the work was done for a fair price. Thanks, RiverKing!
