"Dear John, we are very grateful for the wonderful work that was provided for SeniorCare and for the attentiveness of your crew.  Everyone was a pleasure to work with and the extensive interior painting was so well done."

Jane Militello, SeniorCare


"We had a fantastic experience with Burke and Crew House painting recently. When our realtor suggested freshening up both the exterior and interior of house we contacted John Burke. He came and did a thorough review of our house, provided a well thought out estimate and arrived as promised on the start date. John and his crew did a great job. The money spent was more than recouped in the home sale. Thanks again!"



"On a scale of 1 to 10 Burke & Crew are a 10. Use us for a reference anytime."

Bobby and Chris Saraceno , General Contractor


"Teresa and I stopped by our new house today and were completely blown away by everything you and your team have done to transform the interior. I realize it's not finished yet, but I just wanted to offer our sincerest thanks, admiration, and respect for everything you've done to help make our house a home. Please pass on our gratitude to your entire team as well. Again, thanks so much for everything, it's truly appreciated."

Steve and Teresa Boudrault


"I just wanted to add my thanks to Joe's about the fabulous paint job you did for him. I was delighted with our color choices and the quality of your workmanship was outstanding. Everyone who comes to visit has been raving about it too. At any rate, we could not be much happier with your workmanship and appreciate how clean the house was when we arrived. Thank you so much."

Virginia Redpath


"John is an orchestrator of painting and refinishing projects. He understands temperature, humidity, the history of old paint on different materials and what the combinations of materials and older painting jobs can mean to the correct approach of a new finish. He will discuss with you the issues at stake; he will give you options; he will tell you what is really involved and how long you can expect it to take. He will talk about when the painting should occur in relation to whatever else you are doing in your project. John understands the big picture; and this means getting outside just the paint. You will come away from the conversation better educated to make the right choice. And your paint job will last. You will know that you've spent your money wisely. Anybody can paint. In 2010, Burke and Crew painted the renovation and addition to my house in Beverly Farms, a building that went on to become a stop on the Green Building Open House Tour, 2 years in a row."

Michael Arvid Hardiman, AIA NCARB

"John and his crew were courteous, conscientious, professional, accommodating and most importantly- tenacious in their prep work and fastidious in their brushwork. I highly recommend them to anyone looking for painters who take pride in their craft."

Keith Zellman


"...Once all the carpentry was completed - Joshua arranged to have the painting (walls, vanity, ceiling, all woodwork), painted through the professional & artistic touch of master painter Mr. John Burke. The finished project is absolutely beautiful & stunning."

Ron and Cindy Morin


"John was referred by a neighbor and after the initial call his response was prompt and he was able to come and give an estimate which allowed us to plan for the project. He was able to schedule the work after this appt in a few weeks and start initially to complete phase one of the outside project. He has been attentive to our other contractors schedules and has been able to adjust his schedule to help us finish the project smoothly. Thank you for your flexibility with this garage door addition."

Audrey Frasier


"Just a quick note to thank you for the time and effort you took for our home. You and your guys did a great job. I know how busy you are and we appreciate you fitting us in the way you did. We'll be sure to recommend you to our friends and family and look forward to working with you in the future. Be well and have a great year."

Diane Ricci


"We hired John Burke to do several jobs at our home over the past year and could not have been more pleased with the results. John and his team did a great job with painting some challenging spaces - especially a couple of bathrooms with tight and narrow sections of wall that required careful and painstaking work. They also touched up several rooms which we had painted on our own, taking them from looking amateurish to looking beautiful.

John and his team pressure-washed the outside of our home, removing quite a lot of dark mold and restoring the original yellow color. I'd been a skeptic and was frankly shocked at how good the house looked when he was through.
John was fantastic to work with in every way. With his help, we outlined the scope of work carefully and there were no surprises; he was very responsive to our concerns; and he finished every job on time, and on or under-budget. In addition, John is friendly, pleasant and reliable. We will definitely hire him for any future painting needs."
Janet and John Hopkins


"I can't tell you how pleased I am, with your artistry in painting, with your experiences with colors, and your crew was fabulous !!!! Looking forward to picking out colors for outside. Thanks again!"

Maureen Duncan


"I was so pleased with John and his crew that when I drive by the house, I stop to admire it. Their work was precise and small details were not overlooked. With courtesy and total clean up, it was a complete package.”

Jean Hawkes


"I just wanted to let you know that Rob and I were very happy with the exterior paint job you did for us this summer. Your attention to detail was great (including completing the minor repairs needed prior to painting). The crew was a pleasure to deal with and kept the job site clean at the end of each day. Most importantly you started and finished the job on time!"

Susan and Rob, Exterior Painting in Ipswich, MA


"John Burke has done several jobs for us over the past few years. These include a complete exterior paint job, deck maintenance, gazebo sealing and interior painting. John’s work is excellent. He is prompt, efficient and a pleasure to work with. He has a large network of craftspeople with whom he works to provide a vast array of services. John Burke is the guy we turn to for all our painting and preservation needs."

Marty and Barbara Luster, Exterior Painting and Deck Maintenance



"We had John Burke do all the painting on the interior and exterior of our house after a major renovation. He paid great attention to every detail and did extensive research for the best product for the exterior. He was also very accommodating working around the construction crew, working extra hours to come in on schedule and on budget. He has an experienced crew, and I would not hesitate to recommend John for any painting job, large or small."
Ron Wyman, Interior and Exterior House Painting

"Thank you and your crew for another impressive job - fast, efficient and tidy. The kitchen looks amazing with the panelling painted cream and everything else looks crisp. Nice doing business with you."

Elizabeth Hughes, Kitchen Painting


"I just wanted to take a minute and tell you how happy I am with your painting service.  Every time I pull up to my house I notice how nice it looks. Your team was very professional and I can't believe how quickly they completed the painting.  I thanked Luke for recommending you and will certainly recommend you to all of my friends."

Cheryl, Exterior House Painting


"Hi John, thank you so much for a great job and all the attention to detail from the whole crew.  I'm glad we decided to go for the full make over rather than the patch-work plan.  And thanks for being able to stretch the job out on the fly - hope we didn't delay any other jobs too much."

Jim Meyer, House Painting


"Three years ago John Burke and his crew painted our large three story house, which is located by the water and takes a lot of “weather”.  John not only did a great job but recommended that certain parts of the house, more exposed to the weather, needed repair.  John arranged for that to be done in a seamless way that did not delay the job.  We were very pleased and our neighbors noticed the quality and care of John’s work.  As a result, John spent most of the summer in our neighborhood painting several homes on our street.  We have since downsized and now rent a lovely smaller house that badly needed painting. Our landlord, who is not local, agreed to allow us to make the choice of painter and, of course John, and his crew, was our choice.  Below is an email exchange between our landlord (gh) and us about the painting project (we were asked by the landlord to “sign off” on John’s work for payment).  Here it is: 

“The only question I have is how does it all look?  Did they do a good job?  Are you pleased?
Was there any problem finding the matching paints?  Your opinion on the whole job? Thanks. gh”
“Dear gh, Thank you for paying to have the entire house painted as well as the deck and railings stained.  The house looks so beautiful!  John and his crew did an excellent job and took meticulous care at every stage of the project. We cannot recommend them and their work highly enough.”
Roy Toulan, House Painting and Deck Staining in Rockport, MA


"Thanks John. The place looks SO GOOD! Thank you for everything."

Patty P.


"Both you and your crew were a PLEASURE to work with!  The prep work was extensive and impressive; and I am confident that the finshed painted house will last longer because of this diligence! I also greatly appreciate your willingness to accommodate my short window of availability, As you know, our house is in a very public location, and we have had many, many compliments on your work! Thank you for a job VERY well done!"


"Hi John, the kitchen looks great.  AGAIN GREAT JOB and there will be other work since I HATE TO PAINT!"


"Hey John, thanks again for a great job.  Both my wife and I love the color and the overall way it came out. (no splatters like I'm famous for) We will keep you in mind for future projects."
Steve, Painting in Hamilton, MA


"I highly recommend John Burke and his crew for painting your home.  My house in Essex was in dire need of painting.  He did an outstanding job at a reasonable price.  He completed the job in a professional manner.  He also started and completed the job in the time frame he said he would.  It is rare to find a contractor who keeps to his schedule.  I couldn't be happier with the results.  Thanks again John."
Gary Newman, Painting in Essex, MA


"We were very pleased to be introduced to John Burke Painting by another local Gloucester business that we had used for our new roof.  John's quote was straight forward, professional and very competitive.  We immediately had a great dialog via email and discussed colors and materials and moved rapidly to engaging him on painting our whole house and trim.  The work was executed expertly and promptly with minimal mess up of our new landscaping.  John in turn recommended another local Gloucester Realtor to help put our house on the market. We highly recommend John's services."
Tony Fenn  - home owner Atlantic St, Gloucester, MA


"We have an old house that requires far more than average preparation, scraping and sanding. John did a far better job than anyone else we've used over the last 16 years. We'll use him again.""
Sarge G. - Historical Property Steward, Annisquam


"John is highly professional! He took the time to understand our needs and then executed on time and on budget. His reliability has convinced me that he is the person I will call for all my painting needs. You are the best!!"

"John Burke has painted a number of rooms, hallways and stairways for us.  He does a fantastic job at fair prices.  He is quick and very neat.  I highly recommend him!"
Gail Byrnes


"John Burke is one of the friendliest and most easy going tradesman I have encountered concerning home improvements. John not only oversees his business from the point of initial estimate he is also hands on with his team during the actual paint job, which was important to me."
