Residential & Commercial Painting

Kevin-Granahan

 My name is Kevin Granahan and I started my painting and wallpapering company in 1995, and have served Manhattan and the outer boroughs with high end painting and wallpapering jobs ever since. Neat, professional craftsmanship and meticulous attention to detail is our trademark. With a friendly no nonsense approach, our ideal customer is the kind who wants something above average and understands that quality entails sufficient time to do the job right and is understanding of the cost involved.   If you feel this describes you, then we are destined to meet and transform you living or workspace into a thing of beauty. 
           
It takes time to do the job right, taking care to cover everything properly, do a thorough sanding of the ceilings, walls and trim, scraping of all cracks and areas that are flaking, plastering and sanding of all these areas, all while making sure that you are inconvenienced as little as possible
 
     Of course, not all paint jobs require such an extreme degree of attention. You might be moving into a new apartment that's in pretty good condition and all that's needed is a one coat freshening up. If time is of the essence, we can have you moved in quickly with more painters on the job - all without sacrificing quality or cleanliness. With over 20 years of proven experience, we adjust our approach to your needs, and leave you feeling happy you hired "Kevin and his crew". We paint your space as if it was our own.
 
     We also offer commercial painting services for offices, retail locations, restaurants and apartment buildings. Our professional painters are equipped to handle everything from new construction production work to high-end specialty paint and wall coverings. Stock and custom wallpapering complete our special service offerings. Contact us for a consultation and an estimate - let's make your space beautiful!
Kevin did an excellent job, even though the job was a small one. The room needed a lot of spackling and repair. Kevin was meticulous with his sanding and prepping the room and closet, so the painting went quickly. He was very careful not to get any paint on my carpet. He arrived on time and quietly worked very hard all day long. He was very professional and vacuumed up after himself. He left my place spotless. While Kevin was not the least expensive painter I considered, he was worth every penny.

I had a bedroom that had significant water damage on 1 wall & ceiling along with multiple other areas of aging on the other 3 walls. I sent Kevin photos of the job and he gave me an estimate for the project. I agreed to the price but I also knew that this was not a realistic price (too low) due to the poor condition of the room. When Kevin arrived in person, he informed me that his estimate was too low based on his on site inspection. The final cost was actually double the initial estimate but I do believe this was a fair price. Kevin did a great job. One would never know that the bedroom walls & ceiling needed so attention- 3 days of work. Kevin was attentive to keep my wood doors& floors free of paint. I am very pleased with the outcome.

Kevin is the utmost professional and a pleasure to work with. He communicated to me exactly what he would be doing every step of the way which made this project stress free. Most importantly, I am delighted with the final product in which Kevin was instrumental in delivering. My apartment looks fabulous! Kevin is a rare find, he is honest, punctual and his work is exceptional.

We had Kevin and his team sand and patch the plaster walls of our newly purchased two bedroom apartment.

Description of work:

Kevin met with me and assessed the work in advance and it was clear that he had a real attention to detail. We were on a tight budget and he was willing to work with us to get big priorities done first and we communicated every day to see what was left to do. He and his team arrived on time, worked well with our super, and did a great job. We were very pleased with the result and the apartment looks great.

We have used Kevin twice before.  We needed the place looking good for an open house.   A very hard worker.  Was very respectful and careful of the apartment.  Good staff to assist him.  And in the end, the apartment never looked better.  I highly recommend without reservation. 

Description of work:

Painted and skimmed kitchen walls and ceiling, painted and skimmed hallway walls and ceiling, painted and skimmed living room walls.  Plastered and repaired several large cracks in wall.

We had one-week to paint a one-bedroom apartment before a new tenant moved in. The apartment hadn't been painted in a while and needed priming and painting for the walls and ceiling. The important thing was the job had to be done on time (since the tenant was moving in in a week) and by someone who could do it independently (since we wouldn't be around to supervise.) 

The crew was trustworthy, showed up on time every morning, did all the job, didn't drip paint on the floor and cleaned up perfectly when they were done. Apart from the walls, we wanted to refresh the kitchen so they also painted the wooden cabinets a beautiful shade of Benjamin Moore grey. On our request, they refinished the countertop by sanding it and painting it too. They also painted all the closet doors from brown to white.

The job was done very nicely, for a reasonable price and the clean-up was excellent - no paint on the floor and a mess everywhere. They bagged up all the trash and kept it outside for us to take out.

Kevin and his team have painted three apartments for us so far and we highly recommend them.
