• Having been in the construction industry for 40 years, one of the most consistently challenging issues I’ve faced has been matching, repairing, and replacing Millwork finishes during the course of renovation work. At Mohegan Sun, there are endless numbers of projects which require this type of expertise, and it was my good fortune to discover Mark Coley and his team at Renaissance-A Painting Company. From the very first project we undertook together, their professionalism and knowledge of this field was obvious and impressive. They are easy to work with, and over the course of many projects since, the result of their work is always exceptional. They are thorough and always aware of the project schedule, budget, safety concerns, and conduct required to work in an intense and active casino environment. One of the very first calls I make when planning out a high level project is to Mark because I know if his team is involved, I can rest easy regarding that aspect of the project. I whole-heartedly recommend Renaissance-A Painting Company to anyone with a staining/finishing or painting project. You will not be disappointed.

  • Plenty of painters can spread paint, and a few do it well and clean up after themselves. It is rare that technicians are trained and experienced in multiple ways to create special finishes. It is truly exceptional when a painting company combines technical capability, meticulous preparation and execution, and a true desire to partner with their clients to create the special look that they envision. Renaissance is such a company.

    We have engaged many painters in 30 years and three houses, and without doubt Renaissance stands head and shoulders above the rest. We met Mark and team in our second home, a saltbox colonial, and they helped us achieve a traditional result, true to the period. When we designed our current home we envisioned a 500 year old manor lifted from a hillside of France. We engaged Renaissance in the design process… not just to design color and finishes, but to coach us on the spaces and character of the house. We have patiently finished a room at a time, at our pace, with Renaissance team always available for a design chat or suggestions on techniques that would have been employed by master craftsmen years ago.

    The result is more than a home we adore.. it’s a long term relationship with a company whose individuals we trust and enjoy. We are having fun planning our next project phases, with Mark’s phone number on speed dial. We’re looking forward to that happy day when the Renaissance crew sets up again.

  • As always, the work performed looks fantastic. It's like the deck and furniture are new again, and the touch ups to the house makes everything look great again. Thanks for paying attention to the details and leaving everything looking perfect.

  • We wanted to give you a small token of appreciation for all that you did to coordinate the repairs to our condominium. It would not have gone well without your oversight. Thank you for being our advocate and for the great work you and your company do for us.

  • Chris and I have so much confidence in you and your crew to take care of this house we have neglected.
    We certainly expected there would be additional costs associated with all of the work. Glad for all your great advice and the attention. We also appreciate those discounts. Your expertise in working with the color and your patience with my insecurities made this so much easier.

  • When I decided it was time this summer to paint the exterior of my home in Farmington, I secured bids from a number of painting contractors including Renaissance. Even though their bid was among the two highest I received, I chose to go with them because they offered not just a simple power wash and painting but a plan for a complete restoration of my home's exterior. This made sense to me since the exterior of my home was in very bad shape - chipped and peeling paint, open seams, warped boards, and uneven joints in my vertical siding, even dry rot in places. Mark Coley, the company's president presented a detailed plan for the work he was to perform and in the process made me feel comfortable that he could deliver the promised results. The work performed by the Renaissance painting crew followed the plan exactly as describe in the proposal with outstanding results. With the work completed, the exterior of my home was restored to its original appearance. The painting crew was neat, courteous and professional and the complete job's cost fell within the proposed amount.

    I would highly recommend Renaissance to any home owner seeking a high quality painting contractor.

  • I want to drop you a line to express my appreciation - not only for the quality of work done by Kevin and his crew but also for the wonderful service. I am grateful to all of you for the care taken while the work is being done, for picking up the extra things (ex: the door handle to the porch), running the errands (ex: buying the bathroom rod for me), accommodating my crazy schedule, finding the plumber and the tile guy, bringing in Rick and also for dealing with Molly so kindly. I think the world of all of you, and while I doubt you ever need references given your reputation, please feel free to use my name at any time.

  • We were introduced to Renaissance over 20 years ago when we were doing a major renovation of our home. The project involved treating virtually all interior and exterior surfaces including the cedar shingle roof that was cleaned and treated with a special preservative.

    Since then Renaissance has maintained our home by annually inspecting all painted surfaces (and the roof) of our home and performing whatever work that is necessary to preserve the various surfaces.

    We have recommended Renaissance to many others over the years who have all had very complimentary things to say about their unique service.

  • From the first day spent protecting the furniture and floors, to the application of the decorative finishes on the walls and powder room floor, the meticulous craftsmanship and attention to detail by Kevin and his crew far exceeded our expectations. Your choice of wall covering for the power room Mark, works perfectly in our space for both its design as well for as a source of color for the mottle and glaze in the center hall and dining room; and we love the marbled harlequin floor in the powder room! It is a bold statement and we would never have considered painting an existing oak floor without your guidance and encouragement.

    In short, Renaissance has transformed our home with the texture, detail and originality of the painted finishes that they so painstakingly crafted. Anyone considering a painting project in their home will distinguish themselves by hiring Renaissance, and will have a finished product that they will enjoy for years to come. We look forward to having you paint the rest of the house in the years to come.

    Thank you so very much.

  • It’s with great pleasure that I mail the enclosed check. As always, your work was highly professional, your crew respectful, and your contribution to our project extremely impactful.

    I can’t thank you enough for your attention to details and your diligence in following up on everything, including those items not even in your domain but critical to the successful completion of the project. I look forward to working with you in the near future.
