Painting my 2200 sq ft., 1865 house.
He and his crew of 2 showed up the day he said he would. They worked each day, all day, for 5 1/2 weeks until the job was done. This included sanding of the old surfaces and some light carpentry. Kent worked with us to give advice on selection of paints and other small but important details. He listened carefully to our concerns and requests and made excellent recommendations. Most importantly, the paint job is just gorgeous. We enjoy it every day and our neighbors (most of whom live in similarly-aged houses) comment on how good it looks. We are very very happy with the result and the timeline. It is obvious Kent cares about the quality of the work he does and it was a pleasure to work with him. We would (will) hire him again in a heartbeat.

House Painting Service

Marty Gilmore from Haddam, CT

The interior of our home was painted. Kent is a wonderful guy and very meticulous. I will use Kent again for future jobs.

Interior Painting Service

I highly recommend Kent Nelson Painting. After using another local painter, we switched to Kent a few years ago. Quality workmanship, attention to detail, fair prices. Extremely pleased. He is our “go to” guy for painting, interior and exterior. No one else touches our house!

Garry Johnson Essex, CT

From your estimator Marc, to your color consultant Andrea,to the project manager Spencer, and to Elvin the best painter ever....5star and all its people were competent, professional, and wonderful to deal with. The paint job including preparation and cleanup was outstanding. We plan several more painting experiences with your company using the same crew we had and are just waiting for Marc's estimate. I absolutely recommend 5star to anyone who wants a beautiful paint job.

Such a great team!

I want to take this opportunity to express my thanks to Five Star Painting for providing an outstanding service in painting the interior of my house. The customer service, timeliness, and professionalism displayed by all of you, from beginning to end, was simply amazing. I cannot say enough about the painting crew. They were unbelievable.

I cannot provide a higher compliment. Rest assured I will recommend you to my friends, neighbors, and anyone else in need of your services, and should I require assistance in the future, Five Star will be my first call. Use this as my testimony to a rare company that is honest, provides first class customer service, and a professional product that can't be beat. You have a lifetime customer.


Kent came recommended to us by a local paint shop. That was five or six years ago. Hiring him was the best decision we made! We wanted him to paint part of the inside of our timber frame house (not an easy job!). He was so so good— meticulous, fast, neat, came when he said he would, reasonable and so amiable to work with, that we ended up having him do all of the inside! This spring we had him back to do our garage and decks (our house is vinyl). The previous painter had made a mess and Kent and his partner did a beautiful job of restoring the garage. On top of this, he had to do major carpentry repairs on the deck and his work was excellent. We recommend him most highly!
