Peter Socko painted both the exterior and interior of my house in July of 2000. I'd had my house painted before, but nobody had done it as professionally as Peter. Both my wife and I were impressed with the quality of Peter's work, I'd also like to point out the neatness with which he and his workers worked on my house.

Upon completion of our selection process, we chose Peter Socko Painting & Decorating to paint approximately 8,000 square feet in our South Barrington home. Peter and his crew worked extremely hard and professionally to create a splendid, fresh look in our home The team carefully sanded and patched all walls and replaced drywall tape where needed. They also worked with us on testing paint colors (even repainting rooms when we changed our minds!)

Peter and his team started the job when promised and stayed on the job dependably and reliably every day until the job was finished(nicely done in time for our Thanksgiving preparations).

To Whom It May Concern:

It is rare that I write an open letter of recommendation for a business on my own business letterhead. A business reputation may be affected by an undeserving referral. It is without hesitation, however, and with confidence in your satisfaction that I recommend the painting and decorating services of Peter Socko. A few years ago I received a similar referral to Peter Socko from Cedar Roofing Company, Inc., a North Shore roofing contractor whose owner regularly uses Peter Socko's services. I have since hired Peter Socko for work on my home and other properties. I am a perfectionist, and his work exceedsperfection. As importantly, Peter Socko is trustworthy to finish the job timely and to your satisfaction and without your overseeing his progress. I have confidently left him with unattended access to my properties to complete jobs without even a bid. His fees are always reasonable. Peter Socko also networks with other contractors who have been brought in on occasion to fix or replace things during his painting and decorating. They, too, were most professional and reliable. You will not regrest using the services of Peter Socko Painting and Decorating, Inc., I say that confidently because you may someday need a lawyer.

Dear Peter,

We had a fantastic experience with Peter Socko! He was extremely responsive to our every need. Peter worked with us to ensure that our home remodeling project turned out exactly as we had envisioned. Peter was fairly priced. He was certainly flexible, timely, friendly, meticulous, and extremely respectful of us as well as our property. His knowledge and experience with a wide variety of materials and media helped us to achieve special techniques on our interior walls. Peter is extremely sensitive to details and instinctively goes above and beyond to make you happy as well as satisfied. It is obvious that he really cares about his jobs and he definitely takes a lot of pride in his work. Best of all, Peter is a true delight to have around the house. He was prepared to do whatever it took to get the job done right, and excelled at providing a quality finished product. We will plan to call upon Peter again for our next painting need, and would with question recommend him to anyone who is looking for a special person to do their painting job.

Peter Socko painted our house in Winnetka last summer and did an absolutely beautiful job.  We highly recommend Peter and his crew to anyone looking for a very high-quality painter who takes tremendous pride in his work.  Since Peter painted our house, we have had countless neighbors come by and tell us that it looks like we have a brand new house. We feel that way, too, and love the new look he gave us.  People walking their dogs routinely stop to get his name and information from us.  The contrast between our “before” and “after” photos is nothing short of stunning.

Just recently, I had a workman come to our house and the first thing he said was, “Wow. Who did your front door?  There are absolutely no visible brush strokes!  Do you know how hard that is to do, especially with that paint?”  I said I did not know how hard it was but that I had complete confidence and trust in my painter and thus was not surprised at the compliment from a fellow professional.  Socko’s attention to detail is truly magnificent.

Peter Socko came very well-recommended to us by the company who replaced our gutters and did our roof repair work, and we were not disappointed.  Socko and his painters were diligent, professional, courteous, and always reliable.  Socko  runs a tight ship when it comes to his crew and I never worried about the character or behavior of his workers.  The crew always showed up promptly exactly when they said they would and the painters were always polite and respectful.  They were neat and tidy and never left lunch items or debris of any kind around our house.  They consistently demonstrated respect for themselves and respect for others, conducting themselves in a gentlemanly way that our neighbors greatly appreciated. 

Our job came in at the price that Peter had given us in the estimate and he always dealt with us fairly and honestly in all things.  A consummate professional, Peter has a very polite and courteous European demeanor, which I found quite refreshing.  He takes his work very seriously and employs the highest of standards to get the job done right.  My husband is somewhat of a perfectionist, so he particularly appreciated Peter’s rigorous attention to detail.  I appreciated that Peter was able to do such a great job for us with minimal disruption to our household and day-to-day life.  He was clean, efficient, and always sensitive to our household needs.

The final thing that I will add is that a primary reason we hired Peter Socko is that we understood from his references that he is incredibly knowledgeable and that his degree of skill marks him as more artist than craftsman. There really is no substitute for expertise and skill. We did not want to trust our home to just anybody.  An exterior paint job is a big investment and it saves considerable money in the long run to get someone who has the skill, talent, and work ethic to really get the job done right the first time.  After our wonderful experience with Peter Socko and his crew, there is no question in our minds that Peter Socko is that someone.  We will choose him again for any of our future painting needs and feel very fortunate to have discovered such gem to help us keep our house both beautiful and impeccably maintained for years to come.  In short, we highly recommend Peter Socko enthusiastically and without any hesitation.

 Sincerely, Sarah Rountree ------- 654 Garland,Winnetka, IL ------------- 01/09/2013

Petr:

Please feel free to use me and this email as a reference. I am so impressed with the quality of your interior painting and wall repair work, how each evening you left our house with everything cleaned up and put away as needed, and your professionalism. I particularly appreciate your attention to details that I did not even notice. I thought your work was fantastic and your price very, very fair. Your estimate of how long the job would take was right on target. I plan on contacting you this Spring when we are ready to have the outside of our house painted.

Please feel free to give my email address or cell phone to anyone who is interested in obtaining a reference on your work.

Thank you! Larry Moller

Good Morning Peter,

I would be happy to serve as a reference for your company in relation to the job you did for us.  You and the crew did an excellent job painting our kitchen, living room and dining room and all of the newly installed floor trim.  My wife and I couldn’t be happier.  While painting can be a messy business, the crew did an outstanding job of leaving the house in great condition.  The job was finished on schedule which was greatly appreciated.

If you have any potential clients who need to talk to someone before they sign a contract with you, don’t hesitate to give them my home phone number - 847.991.2160

Sincerely,

Peter Socko comes highly recommended.

He's truly our "go to" man for any of our painting needs. We've recently remodeled our Kitchen and two Bathrooms in our condo and needed after construction work. Peter and his crew were ready, willing, and totally able to put the finishing touches on our project. He and his crew were like a breath of fresh air after our Kitchen and Bathrooms were totally redone. We knew from our prior experiences with Peter that he strives for perfection and detail in his work and he could not be more helpful or reliable. His product knowledge is wide and he and his crew clearly demonstrate pride in their work as well as a great respect for our property. Peter works cleanly, efficiently, and thoroughly and goes above and beyond to please his customers. After going through 11 weeks of messy demolition, I was confident that minimal clean up would be needed since Peter and his helpers do an outstanding job of leaving a home clean and neat at the end of the job. If you are looking for a Professional Painter who is multitalented and out to please his clients, please consider Peter Socko. He's indeed a rare find!Sincerely,
