Hoboken Painter Reviews
As verified by Yelp
My apartment is a converted factory with very high ceilings, awkard nooks and crannies, exposed beams, stairs, difficult ladder positioning, etc. Basically, a painter's nightmare! I just bought the place (read: my budget was depleted), but it was in urgent need of a coat of paint. I called four contractors for quotes. One declined the job on account of the difficulty factor, and the other two provided proposals of more than double Nick's price and schedule.
Nick visited me two or three times whenever I needed further information or changed my mind about something, and he did so ever friendly and polite, in spite of no guarantee of getting the job. When we finally settled on a scope and price, he was there promptly at the arranged time, with his assistant and his wife. Before speaking to Nick, my rough estimate was that the job would take at least a week, if done properly. Nick estimated he should be able to do it in three days. He ended up delivering it in ONE DAY!!! Sure, there were a few touch-ups required, so he revisited the next day (again, friendly and polite as ever).
His pre-estimate of the amount of paint it would take was spot-on, and I was left with about half a gallon for future touch-ups. We misunderstood each other on the need to paint the bathrooms, so he pre-purchased paint for these, but when I told him I did not need them painted, he was absolutely fine with it and was happy to take the paint back at no cost to me.
I am somewhat pedantic about painting: it has to be perfect for me to be happy with it (which is part of the reason why I did not want to take on this task myself...). All I can say is that I am 100% satisfied with what Nick delivered! I cannot fault a thing: value, timing, quality, professionalism. He scores full marks!
As busy professionals my wife and I didn't have time to paint our condo in downtown Jersey City. After doing some research on the internet we came across the very nice reviews for Nick and his team. I decided to give a call and although he was very busy in the summer months he made it a point to come over and give me a very competitive estimate. We booked a date and him, his wife and brother were here at 745am and finished before I returned home from work. I tried to pay before I went to work but he said don't pay until you inspect our work. When I got home I was absolutely astounded by how wonderful a job they had done. I would highly recommend him to anyone looking for a professional and courteous paint crew. Thanks Nick!
As a busy professional, the last thing I have time for are errands in the middle of the day. I had Nick come out to my condo in the evening of the same day that I called him. He gave me a fair estimate, had a very warm personality, and came back the next morning at 7:45am and finished the job by 1pm that same day. I was able to visit the apartment off-hours again with him to review the work. He and his wife and team did an amazing job with my 1BR condo and didn't miss a single spot! His attention to detail is impeccable as he patched up a few areas that even I hadn't noticed.
He only takes cash, so be sure to visit your ATM after he gives you the estimate.
All in all, he took the stress off my back and got the job done within 24 hours.
I plan to call Nick in the future and would highly recommend him!
If you feel like reading - I highly recommend Nick and his helpers! Hubby and I recently moved into our first home and we hired Nick to come and paint the entire 2 bedroom 2 bath. He came over one night and took just under 5 minutes to assess how much everything would cost. Since we were moving 3 days later, we selfishly wanted everything painted prior to that. As we were painting every single wall and every single door, this had to take more than just one day. Even so, Nick was able to squeeze us in the very next day and get started! We were so relieved to say the least. Over the next week, we worked out a schedule and he is so flexible as he had his helper (Stephan) come and do most of the work when Nick was otherwise engaged. On the very last day, Nick had brush in one hand, and me pointing out minor places that needed touch up. The end result is amazing. I can't wait to show off my new place to friends and family, and I'm sure they will love the paint job as much as I do. Nick and Stephan are so friendly, and I will definitely hire them again.
If you just want the gist - great quality, friendly, no fuss, amazing result.
I could not have imagined for a better painter & human being to paint my new apartment. As I'm a total novice, Nick took the whole responsibility and morphed into something exquisite & beautiful at a very reasonable price.
The compliments keep flowing from everybody who visited my place especially the craftsmanship!!!
Nick is always on time and highly flexible. He's become the painter for all of my needs going forward.
Nick is the best!!!!
We were looking for someone to paint our 2 bed condo and came across this business in yelp. The 5 star rating definitely was the kicker for me to call Nick.
But honestly, for the kind of work that was done at my place, Nick deserves more than 5 stars. The attention to detail was spectacular and I couldn't praise the work more. The price was very reasonable too. We had no idea about painting a condo and Nick came a day before, advised us on the material to bring and we were glad to go by his recommendations. Nick is a fantastic person and a thorough professional. Highly recommended.
Nick and his crew did a fantastic job on our 2 bedroom condo. Fair price, fast service, did everything in 1 day then came back the next day to touch up.
Thanks Nick! We love the paint job!
I called Nick and he was at my place that evening to give me an estimate. He and his partner were back at my place at 7:45am the next day before I left for work. When I came home my apartment seemed as if it had been painted that way. You would have never known there were painters there that day. They did impeccable work and reasonably priced. I also asked Nick to hang a bathroom medicine cabinet and he did this as part of the job. I would recommend him to anyone in Hoboken that needed paintwork done! Great Job!
I hired nick to paint my one bedroom condo. He showed up for all appointments on time, gave a great estimate, and did an amazing job. He recommended the right paint to use for each room, fixed up/patched every hole in my walls and finished most everything in one day. He came back another day to finish up the woodwork and was in and out in an hour. My place looks fantastic and I couldn't have asked for a much nicer job or nicer person. Thanks nick.
I called Nick the day before I was moving since I got stood up by the previous guy. I needed him to install storage cabinets above my washer and dryer (now storage room too). Really nice old school Russian guy precise and friendly. While he was here I had him put a bead of chalking in my bathrooms - HIghly recommend him and I going to be using him to do other misc stuff - Thank You Nick!
NIck and his crew recently painted my loft, but I didnt have them do the closets. I realized that was a mistake, so I hired them to come back to do the closets. They did a WONDERFUL job at a fair price and high quality work. They really pay attention to detail and are so efficient and respectful of your property and time! I could not be happier!
If you are looking for someone to do high quality work and attention to detail you should hire Nick!
They are just terrific!
I was on a very tight schedule to move into my house and was unlucky to hire a painter who seemed to be highly recommended but did a horrible job painting my house, was slow and careless so I had to find someone else. This time I went to Yelp and contacted Nick for help. He arrived the same day, provided a very reasonable estimate and said they can start the next day. Stefan and Francisco arrived on time and within 8 hours completely re-done my dining room which involved scraping old wallpaper, sanding, plastering the walls and painting. They have done high quality work and were nice and respectful. Over the next two days Stefan has repainted the trims upstairs and did great job too! It was a pleasure to work with Nick, I highly recommended him and will hire in the future! Eugene
I signed up for Yelp with the singular purpose to leave this review as my experience with Hoboken Painters was so terrific. Nick actually has completed two condo projects for us. I've worked with several painters in the past, but he and his crew stand out. Nick is that "old fashioned" kind of painting pro that has a terrific eye for details, knows how to rehab an old wall back to almost new, and gets the job done on time and in budget. When he tells you he will show up at 8:50am (quirky, right?) he does! His three-man crew is pleasant, hard working and very skilled at making your home look great quickly and efficiently. Nick will work with you on choosing the right type of paint (and if he tells you to "go matte" when you want flat - listen to him - he's right!) and uses only Benjamin Moore products. I was on a tight budget for my first project, and we worked out compromises to meet my needs and his. I cannot recommend Nick enough!
The way Nick does is perfect, prompt, reliable with very reasonable cost. And he smiles.
I was looking for painter for my two bed apartment in Jersey City. Among some contractors I've discussed with, Nick proposed lowest estimation and his crew completed painting my apartment within just NINE Hours!! And it was excellent job.
It feels like Nick will be my lifetime contractor, ever.
Yes, their review speak for itself. Nick, his wife and his crew were dream. They finished painting our 3 story house in 2 days with another 1/2 day to just do a light touch ups. Nick is so pleasant and professional it makes you wish everyone you encounter is like him. I cannot recommend Hoboken Painter highly enough.
The best. Seriously. It's a long story, but I was in a jam. At the last minute, Nick personally came in and painted my living room. I had friends doing the rest of the house taking days and doing not such a good job. Nick did my living room in two hours and it was amazing, so smooth, no lines. Plus he is really nice and can be your grandfather.
One of the best experiences I have had by far from anyone! Nick and his team were very professional and did an excellent job! Excellent paint on walls, ceilings and moldings. He even touched it up few weeks after the main job bc our floor people messed up the moldings. His paint was spot on and catered to every small request we asked. You need a painter in the Hoboken/JC area? GO TO HOBOKEN PAINTER!!
When my boyfriend and I were looking for a painter, we knew without a doubt (or even before we met Nick and got an estimate) that we would go with him based on the stellar reviews. We couldn't be more happy or satisfied with the work. Our place looks exactly how we wanted and most importantly, he and his team were so meticulous and neat!
Nick made the whole process easy, fast and reliable! We would 110% recommend him to anyone and use him at any time in the future.
We hired Nick and his team to paint our apartment before we moved in. He was referred to us by a friend, and the price he quoted was by far the best quote we received after reaching out to several other painters in the area. The team arrived on time and was very friendly and efficient. We were extremely happy with the results, and we even had Nick return to our apartment on a later date to install curtain rods and patch up a hole in our wall. Nick went above and beyond by coming back on New Year's Eve. He is very professional and knowledgeable, and I would recommend him to anyone for painting and handyman work.
Nick and his team were fantastic. They came on time and finished same day. Their work was great and reasonable as well. I would definitely recommend them.
Nick did some painting for me when I moved out of my apartment in Jersey City. He was punctual, clear about costs/materials - and finished the job ahead of schedule at a fair cost.
Would highly recommend!
Nick & the team are really nice people, they squeezed me into their schedule, even though I gave them really short notice.
They painted from 8 am to 1 pm which is insanely fast for a living room, kitchen, and staircase area + upstairs hallway.
There was an area that needed refining, they came the next day and fixed it.
They are really good and polite people, I highly recommend them.
Nick painted my apartment, in J.C.'s Hamilton Park neighborhood, a few weeks ago.
Though I understand he sometimes brings several family members along with him, for my place he brought a team of two super men: Stefan and Carlos, What a dynamic trio! He told me they would do it all in one day--which really sold me--and they did indeed. They showed up with all the paint needed before 9 a.m. and were out before 5. They removed everything from the walls, moved the furniture into the center of the room and covered it carefully and did a neat, professional job. I said I needed some patching done, but had underestimated the extent of it. But they handled it coolly and calmly. I love the place now!
Price was exactly what I had been quoted, and they were three very pleasant people to have around the apartment. Nick makes it so easy to paint, or I should say, to get painted. . .
Nick and team just painted our apartment in jersey city. Was very knowledgable and offered several recommendations, all of which turned out well. Overall job was top quality and nick came back when completed to make sure everything was perfect. would definitely use him again.
Although I've already repainted the wall in question, Hoboken Painter did make good on this by refunding the portion of the cost that would have gone to hiring a pro to repaint it. I'm satisfied by this resolution, and also by the fact that they really do stand by their work.
I cannot say enough about Nick and his crew! First off, Nick is an incredibly nice guy - and super responsive. Came to our apartment and gave a price quote which was he stuck to even after I postponed the job for several weeks. Nick & crew arrived on schedule. They were prepared, polite and helpful (we had some items that were too heavy for my roommate and me to move - no problem!) And the paint job they did was excellent - not a speck or drip. Will definitely use Nick again - I recommend him most highly.
Nick and his team just painted our entire new condo in downtown Jersey City. They are very nice people to work with, extremely professional and get the job done very fast!
The walls are painted to perfection, they leave the place spotless clean, and Nick will do the final walk and all touch-ups you request, always with a smile!
Very affordable service when compared to other vendors.
We are super happy with the service received from Nick and his team, would highly recommend to anyone, and will surely call them again if we need re-paint in the future!!
Thank you Nick!!
Nick and his crew just finished painting my apartment. Looks awesome! On time, responds to your calls/emails promptly, great attention to details! Definitely would recommend their service.
Very happy with the quality of work. Professional, quick and affordable. I spoke with Nick on Monday, he came with his team on Tuesday and finished painting six rooms and the upstairs and downstairs foyer, and it all looks great. Would definitely recommend.
After a failed attempt at me trying to paint a room in my new apartment, I realized I needed professional help for the rest of the apartment. Nick and his team came to the rescue!
Nick came by one evening to check the apartment and give me a more accurate quote. I have to say he is one of the nicest guys I've ever met. I had minimal lighting in the apartment and he was kind enough to look around in the semi darkness and offered me a ride to the train station afterwards! The estimate was very very reasonable for the quality of service and the actual painting.
On the morning of the paint job, Nick arrived with his team and very quickly covered the walls in what can only be called a perfect job. They were kind enough to show my husband and me what we were doing wrong with our efforts in the room we tried to paint.
Overall, a great experience, I would gladly recommend them to my friends and family and hope the team stays as awesome as they are right now.
I cant say enough about Nick, you only have to make sure you and him are on the same page because his English isn't great. But his work is spot on. He did my 2700 square foot home , top to bottom in 3 days before I moved in. After the furniture arrived he came back and fixed all the marks the furniture movers made on the walls. A truly professional job done by a bunch of nice people. He had a gentleman named Stefan who helped us with colors also. Great Guys. I cant say enough. Also they come on time, almost to the minute. I forgot to say I hired Nick after I went to see a recent job of his while he was working, that's when I decided he was the one, and he worked on Saturday to make sure we were ready for the movers on Monday........
When I found "Hoboken Painter" online I thought that I had found exactly what I needed. After requesting a quote and receiving a quote via email I tried to set up an appointment, however even though I had attempted contacting by email and phone I never heard anything back. When I tried to contact him again he acted like he never heard about my job and said that he would have to come out to do a quote. We scheduled for him to come out to do a quote the next day at 6:00pm (within the next 24 hours) and even asked for me to write him an email as a reminder. When he didn't show or respond to the email, my text or phone calls I assumed that he would not be coming. I later received a text from him, "Sorry, my working day from 6:30am to 7:30pm. Please you find someone." Which I can only assume means that he doesn't want my business. Now we are stuck doing the job ourselves because I first emailed 6 days ago now. Poor business and NO customer service.
Nick has painted most of our JC condo, and has done a fantastic job for us! He was able to finish the jobs quickly but with care, and his quotes were always correct. He even picked up the paint for us! We would hire him again!
From the reviews, I thought that he would be very diligent but the paint job was sloppy and he lost a couple of my switch plate covers and reinstalled my doors incorrectly. I would not hire him again.
this family team is systematic and diligent. they will go above and beyond your expectations. most importantly, they are just very nice people. couldn't have asked for a better experience.
Nick and Company were incredibly great to work with. The finished product was amazing. Nick was very east to coordinate time for providing an estimate and day of painting. I was very pleased that they began work early in the morning and then painted 2 bedrooms, living room, kitchen, hallways, bathroom all before 3pm in the evening. Afterward my apartment was clean and the paint job was fantastic. I will only use Nich and his team in the future.
Nick is a lovely guy with a great work ethic. I had him paint a room for me and he did a great job and worked very quickly. He ended up missing a few minor spots but was happy to finish the room before leaving at no extra charge. I'd definitely work with him again.
Called Nick based on the reviews here on Yelp and couldn't have been happier. Nick is extremely friendly, down to earth, and eager to please. Needed to get my place painted before tenants moved in.
Nick showed up on time, gave me a reasonable estimate, and was able to get started quickly. He did a great job, especially around the crown molding. Place looks great and is ready for the new renters.
Additionally, his wife did an amazing job cleaning, too.
As mentioned elsewhere, his english is a little bit limited, but with a little bit of patience and some notes, it was more than fine.
Would absolutely hire him again.
I needed to find a painter to paint my 2 bedroom condo in Maxwell place and after some searching on our internal building website Nick was suggested to me by another resident. I was able to get in touch with him and he came by quickly to perform the initial estimate which was very reasonable in price in relation to other painters in the area. He also gave detailed information on the suggested type of paint which i was able to get myself through someone i knew at Benjamin Moore at a discount. Nick got the painting done quickly the same week i was moving in and came back to do some touchups. He was very flexible around meeting me around my schedule and such a great person who impressed both me and my girlfriend with his kind manner. I'd suggest him to anyone in Hoboken looking to have work done.
Nick worked on on of my 2BR, 2 Ba property at Adams Street, was very reasonable and professional and fast. He arrived on time and gave me a price up-front.
Nick did a great job on painting and repairing my walls and doors. He's a very pleasant man, always smiling. I can tell he is concerned about quality -- old school craftsmanship. He speaks limited English, so you need to keep the instructions and conversation to the basics. But his happy demeanor makes up for the language skills. He brought his assistant, Sasha, with him, who was also very good. One tip is to make sure you're paying by the hour or by the project up front. I was a little confused. But in the end, the hourly rate quoted happened to turn out to be what he estimated for the whole job. So all ended well.
Very nice job at a fair, and reasonable price. They did the job quickly, and didn't complain about moving furniture, high ceilings, etc. We would definately hire these guys again.
We hired Nick to paint our 2 bedroom condo in Jersey City, and I couldn't be happier with the result. It was done quickly, for a reasonable price, and everything looks great! He also did some handyman work for us, replacing some damaged moldings. He was a bit hesitant to do it when I asked, since he is not a carpenter, but he did an extremely good job on them! He was on time every time, and very friendly. As others have mentioned, his English is limited, but don't let that throw you off. He is an excellent contractor!
With the stress of buying my first condo behind me, I was nervous about picking the right paint colors and finding a painter to make the place look nice and bright. So glad I found Nick. He is very professional, but more importantly, a nice guy. Easy to schedule estimates and paint jobs. The result-beautifully painted apartment. Made it feel like home. Would highly recommend Nick.
We hired Nick to pain our 1,800 sq ft condo. For every appointment, he was on time, made good suggestions and was meticulous. His quote was extremely reasonable and the paint job was great. He was very sweet and pleasant to work with. He stayed late one night because he knew that we wanted to get all the bedrooms done before we moved in. I would hire him again in a heartbeat. His English is limited, but he's very responsive on email and to be honest, there wasn't too much to communicate besides 'use this color on this wall'.
Nick did a fantastic job painting our house. He was quick, effecient, careful, and extremely pleasent. I had a living room, 2 bedrooms and a kitchen/living room painted, and he did it all in a couple of days. There was one spot he missed, and he was more than happy to come up and do a small touch up. He filled all of the holes left by the previous owner too. Affordable price, I'd recommend to anyone.
Great experience with Nick. They did a spectacular job and really take pride in their work. The cost was definitely fair especially given the craftsmanship. We would not hesitate to use again and have recommended him to friends.
Fast and efficient job at a reasonable cost. He was pleasant to work with. I would definitely contact him again for any paint job or handy man job that I need.
I would recommend Nick for anyone who is looking for a friendly personality, professional and quick painter. Nick was a pleasure to work with. Ordered exactly the colors we wanted and though he was pressed for time, did a really nice and thorough job.
Nic and his helper Sasha were efficient, neat , quite and had a very fair price. I won't hesitate to hire them again.
