We hired KMR to paint the entire interior of an historic house. We were extremely impressed with their work, and would hire them again in an instant for many reasons: (1) Their prep and painting work was immaculate. (2) This was a complicated job, and the actual painting was only part of it. There were a ton of wall [and] closet...repairs required. Kevin (the owner) did a great job of identifying all the things that needed to be done beyond just painting to really make the house look terrific, and he made a number of good recommendations in keeping with the character of the house that we wouldn't have thought of on our own. The actual workmanship for these repairs was excellent. (3) Kevin is a very good communicator, and we stayed in constant contact throughout the work. (4) They cleaned up well after themselves, even taking the garbage out to the curb the night before pickup The house was cleaner when they finished than when they started. (5) Their prices are very fair. Kevin will tell you up front that they're not the cheapest and not the most expensive. I've learned through experience that with painting you get what you pay for, and with KMR what you get is exceptional quality.

Mr. Ryan and his crew have completed two jobs at my 1920's home. My first experience two years ago involved exterior painting which, as you may imagine from the age of the house, is not an easy task. They meticulously prepared the surface by power washing, scraping, and sanding the shingles and trim. All the rotted wood was replaced and the windows caulked. They used an excellent paint and our home looks fabulous. Mr. Ryan gave excellent advice about removing shutters that weren't "right" for the house. Recently the same crew worked on the inside of the house which had some serious damage to the plaster walls and original woodwork that needed to be refurbished. The results are amazing! Several places in the house needed touch up and Mr. Ryan was very careful to make sure the new paint matched the old. All in all I could not have asked for more. Everything was done expertly and handled professionally. The crew came on time and worked hard all day. Mr. Ryan who worked along with his crew was easy to talk to, returned calls, and did both jobs for a fair price. KMR Painting & Decorating has earned my highest recommendation.

He surpassed expectations. They were prompt, courteous and a very nice crew. Excellent,
excellent job. I highly recommend them.
~ E Conklin
The job went very well. I don’t have anything negative to say about this company. They took
care of every detail and even did work that was not in the contract at no additional cost. I would
recommend KMR to anyone needing painting. You cant go wrong. I have received many
compliments on KMR’s work.
~ P DiMeglio

Kevin Ryan, the proprietor, did not submit the lowest estimate for the job. In fact, his was the
second highest I received. I gave him the work because he was by far the most careful about
reviewing what the work would entail, in terms of surface preparation, ladder placement, and
any clearance problems with the neighbors—a major item as my house sits very close to an
adjoining property. This turned out to be an excellent decision. He and his crew were
meticulous in preparation, performed the actual painting in exceptional detail, repaired wood
and masonry expertly and cleaned up thoroughly. I would recommend him without qualification,
and in fact have asked him for an estimate on a complicated interior job.
~ M Barnhart
KMR’s pricing was the best of the 3 proposals I had obtained. Kevin’s men did a great job
staining the exterior of my house, which hadn’t been done in 15+ years. They did a meticulous
job and the house looks terrific. Kevin also helped me pick a new color for the front door which
complements the color of the surrounding brick and was a big improvement over the old color. I
couldn’t be happier with their work.
~ N Urbano
Although I had to wait months to schedule this, KMR, Kevin Ryan and his team were well worth
the wait. The service is obviously in demand but Kevin kept me posted along the way and was
honest in telling me the time frame. Once work began, the team worked extremely hard form
8am promptly until 5:30 with only a short break for lunch. They were a very nice group of
workers and they worked diligently. The walls were old and they looked great afterwards.
Kevin was very nice and takes great pride in his work. I highly recommend him. I had one other
estimate and Kevin’s price was quite a bit lower as well.
~ C Ciarelli
St James, NY
Mr. Ryan returned my call immediately. He came within a few days and thanked me for calling
him. He looked over the house and said he would send me an estimate. He did so within a
couple of days with a detailed description of the work to do. We were not in a great hurry as it
was hot and humid. He called around Labor Day and gave us a date. He came on the date
promised and completed everything within 4 days. The final cost compared to the original
estimate was right on. I got more than my money’s worth. We chose KMR and Kevin Ryan
because of his reputation, responsiveness and pleasantness. He is such a likable humble man
we hated to see him go.
~ J Tufaro
Kevin’s was one of 8 quotes we received and was the third from the lowest price. We decided
to hire him because he was more professional than the other lower quotes, could commit to
getting the job done on time, used quality materials and would personally be on the job working
with his crew of 4-5 men. Also, due to the size of this crew, he could get done quicker. Our
home is chock full of wall hanging (including a moose head, sailfish and 7 other animal heads),
collectibles, antiques, etc. We removed most of these items in advance, and Kevin worked with
balance of the items. He communicated well and his crew were very accommodating. The job
was finished in 5 days and they worked Saturday and Sunday to get it done. We were very
~ W Lahmann
Kevin Ryan runs a great company and a very hard-working crew. They were meticulous in
stripping the house and the garage down to the bare wood. The paint job itself is excellent. We
are very pleased with how everything turned out. They worked with us throughout the job to
recommend finishes and colors that would work together. Kevin didn’t require and pre-payment
to secure the job; he requested partial payments once the job started and as work was being
completed. I would definitely recommend KMR and Kevin Ryan to anyone who is considering
an external paint job; the quality of their work is outstanding.
~ C Sherwood
The job performed by Kevin Ryan and his crew greatly exceeded my expectations. I knew the
house and porch required a lot of work but no painters had ever done such a thorough job of
removing the multiple layers of old paint thereby creating a smooth surface for the finish coats. I
had an estimate from another company more than double that of KMR but I can’t see how they
could have done a better job. The carpentry work was done expertly. Kevin Ryan and his
workers were very professional, easy to work with, paid attention to details, consulted me when
decisions had to be made, protected surfaces, carefully cleaned up, and took pride in the quality
of their work. They drew the attention of my neighbors who admired their thoroughness and the
outstanding result of their work. The job took two and one-half weeks, at the end of which my
hundred year old house looked like new.
~ M Jacobs
I hired KMR to repaint areas of the exterior trim that were peeling badly (due to inadequate
prepping by previous painter). They also power washed my house. All peeling areas were
sanded down to the wood and repainted. They exceeded my expectations by doing a much
more extensive job than I had expected (for the quoted price). Mr. Ryan is very professional
and was very clear in his communications about what needed to be done. Their clean-up was
meticulous. My house looks great and I am very happy with the work done by this company; will
definitely use them again.
~ E Fante
Kevin and his crew power washed, sanded the exterior of our cedar home and fence. Our
home was in desperate need of being brought back to its original lovely state. Kevin and his
crew did a wonderful job and worked until everything was perfect. KMR Painting are a terrific
group who I strongly recommend. Kevin even sanded and waxed our expensive front doors as
well as re-caulked certain areas of the house without being asked since he knew it was the
correct way to do it. I would strongly recommend KMR painting for interior or exterior painting.
~ A Silverman
Kevin (the owner) was great, as well as his crew. They are all so hard working and very nice
people. This is the 3rd time we are repainting our house in the past 10 years. We’ve had
nothing but problems in the past with severe peeling. I feel that it was never done properly until
now. They did a BEAUTIFUL job. This was a BIG job, and we feel it was done in a timely
manner. Our house never looked this good. It was worth every penny. We had gotten other
estimates, and KMR’s price was comparable to them. And no one can beat his guarantee. We
would definitely use KMR Painting in the future and recommend them to all our friends.
~ J Warga
Kevin is the consummate professional. He kept in constant contact. He set a start date with a
two week finish and would have been dead on if the weather had cooperated. If there was any
doubt about the work being done, he called to verify specifics prior to doing the work, eliminating
any misunderstandings. He and his workers arrived on time and left everything clean and
organized. His price was fair and reasonable. Overall it was an excellent job and we highly
recommend KMR Painting.
~ E Globus
KMR estimated the interior painting of our entire house—a big job. After colors were chosen
and the work began, I realized how complicated it is to take your entire household out of normal
use for a week or so. Kevin and his crew arrived each day, in a good mood, on time, and got
right to work. They helped with everything needed to give the great results we got. They were
expert in the wall preparation so that the painted house has a “like new” look. They know where
to start and how to stage the work to be efficient. The project was completed in the estimated
time and budget. They thoroughly cleaned up,no small task. The house is improved
greatly—looks peaceful, pleasant, renewed. Perfect results. Kevin was careful in estimating,
working and leading the team. All quality expectations were met or exceeded. The professional
ability and experience of KMR and his crew is excellent.
~ J Arnold
I have used KMR several times in the past to paint the house, garage and recently my barn.
The inside of the house needed a lot of prep work and that’s where Kevin and his crew really
stand out. They spend as much time as is needed to make sure everything is perfect before it’s
painted. My house took about a week with the crew working steady every day. Kitchen
cabinets got special attention and the bathroom got special paint. There was some water
damage in the ceiling that was also repaired. The guys were very careful and respectful and all
around very professional. The house looks brand new now and we’re very happy with the work.
If you want the job done right give KMR a call. You’ll be glad you did.
~ T Zembko
KMR painted the outside of my home. They were incredible. They were 30% cheaper and
100% better than anyone else. They cleaned up after themselves. They knew how to do the
job. The other estimates I received didn’t shake a stick to this guy; they weren't even close.
The job they needed to do was not going to be done properly by the other estimates. KMR is
worth their weight in gold.
~ L Jansson
South Merrick, NY
Kevin and crew did extensive prep work including removal of wallpaper, priming and painting.
Kevin and his crew were professional at all times, arrived on time, covered floors and furniture,
cleaned up after each day’s work and did a great job. The overall attitude of the crew was
exceptional, and they presented a cheerful attitude at all times. We are very pleased with the
work and will use Kevin again.
~ D Hanson
Huntington Station, NY
KMR prepped and painted our repaired deck. I could not have asked for more professionalism
and quality. Kevin Ryan is the best service provider I have ever hired, bar none, and I have
hired plenty. What a find! They spent DAYS preparing the deck for painting and were
meticulous from start to finish.
~ D Pace
I called KMR (Kevin Ryan and his staff) for an estimate based on his excellent online reviews.
He arrived promptly for the estimate, was completely honest about what he thought I needed
without trying to oversell me, and provided a thorough written estimate by the next day. The
estimate was very fair compared to others I received. Due to circumstances out of his control
(Hurricane Sandy), the job’s start was delayed. During that time, Kevin called to check in and
reassure me the work would start as soon as possible…and it did. They arrived between 8-9am
each day. They worked until dark, and at the end of each day, cleaned up thoroughly…minimal
dust, no tools laying around, etc. I really appreciated that. They were respectful as possible of
my children’s presence and my young child’s napping. They were at my house for 2-3 weeks,
working Saturdays, and even Sundays (only because I did not mind. Had I voiced an objection,
he would not have worked that day.) Kevin is very good about explaining what he is doing as
he is doing it, what was done, and what work remained. I am so pleased with all the work
done…the quality, the courteousness, and the overall experience. He is coming back this week
for more interior work. I have given his name to friends and family, and I will continue to do so.

KMR painted about 3/4 of my house. There were lots of surface issues, taping, etc. There was
also some sheet rocking and repair of an oak floor. Big plus having painters who can also do
carpentry work. We were very pleased with everything. Kevin and his team showed up on time
every day and worked hard every day to get the job done quickly. There were a lot of things we
requested over and above the additional charge. The end result was above our expectations.
The walls look like my house was just built. We will use KMR for all of our future painting
~ R Fasano
Kevin and company primed and painted almost the entire house. Kevin returned my initial call
the following day. He showed up at the time scheduled to give an estimate. He was able to
work around a very difficult schedule with other construction workers, ensuring that there was
not time lost. He even worked on Sundays to get the job done in a timely manner. He stuck to
his word through the entire process, a rarity in this field. I plan to use Kevin again with exterior
painting in the future.
~ M White
Kevin Ryan and his crew took my painting project to a higher level. They had so much to do in
little time and put it all together beautifully. He had a crew of four working five days straight to
get this job done quickly. Sconces and paneling needed to be taken out of a room that was a
throw back from 1975. The put in the floor, window and door moldings so awesome in the living
room, hallway, office and 2 bedrooms. They also installed crown molding in the living room and
hallway. I cannot say more about the results. If anyone wants a man who can do it all, he is the
one. Superb job.
~ J Sabbatino
West Babylon, NY
You don’t need to look any further for a fantastic painting team! From the minute Kevin arrived
to provide an estimate, I had a great feeling about him. From his truck being very clean to his
professional manner, I knew that Kevin would do a terrific job. The estimate was fair and landed
in the middle of two other estimates we received. Kevin and his team landed at the top when it
came to the quality of their work! The walls, ceilings, moldings , and everything that their paint
brushes touched are now perfect! In addition to their unsurpassed skills, Kevin always called
me right back and he and his crew were always on time. I’d hire them again in a heartbeat.
~ E Kasof
I hired KMR Painting because I had read many great reviews online. They exceeded all of my
expectations. They worked very neatly and everything was cleaned up when they left. Kevin
was very professional and did everything and more that he promised us. Our house has been
completely transformed. I definitely made the right choice by choosing KMR Painting. You
can’t be disappointed with their work.
~ B Reimer
Kevin Ryan and his team did an amazing job and I am very satisfied with the work. Kevin said
the work would take 3 to 4 days to complete, he finished in 3.5 days and his estimate was spot
on. Kevin explained in detail what the job would entail. His team conducted themselves
professionally, working efficiently and cleaned up after themselves at the end of each day. I
was impressed that I received an update from Kevin each evening as I was not available while
they were working on the project. It’s obvious Kevin genuinely cares and is concerned that his
clients are satisfied with the services he provides. I would highly recommend Kevin Ryan and
KMR Painting, for the quality of their work, their professionalism and the value they provide. I
will definitely be using KMR Painting for future projects.

KMR painted the entire interior of our house including installation of crown molding and
replacement of window trim that was improperly built by another contractor. Kevin and his crew
were very professional and efficient throughout the entire process of the job. He wasn’t the
cheapest estimate we received but definitely the best value of our buck. During the walk
through for the estimate, he was very thorough in explaining the detail of the pending job.
Kevin’s installation of the crown molding, base boards and window trim were absolutely superb.
There were no visible seams when they were completed. He re-taped cracks in the drywall
perfectly and skim coated all the painted surfaces to match the surface texture of the newly
constructed sheetrock. The team was always very friendly, punctual, clean and most of all, very
respectful of our privacy. Our house looks great.
~ P Schrader
East Northport, NY
Kevin and his team painted the entire outside of my house. He and his team did an amazing
job. I couldn’t be happier with the quality of the work. They did a very thorough job prepping
the house and replacing damaged areas before painting. The paint job is outstanding. I have
zero criticism of the work done. The team was also professional and friendly and Kevin
answered all my questions with detail and patience. I would highly recommend them.
~ R Babich
Kevin repainted almost the whole inside of our house. Kevin and his crew showed up every day
on time. All our furniture and floors were covered to protect them from dust and paint. They
were extremely professional. Kevin has years of experience and knows how to get the job done
~ S Trottere
We are very satisfied with the job KMR did. They really took their time prepping the house for
the paint job. Painted everything very neatly and hit all nooks and crannies. They were always
on time and worked all day. Everyone was very professional.. I love the new paint job.
~ G Greco
This was one of the best experiences with a contractor I have ever had. They came in every
morning at their assigned time and I got home in the evening, the house was cleaned and
vacuumed and we were still able to function as a family. They were very respectful and finished
in exactly seven days, as promised.
~ N Pongas-Doti
What didn’t Kevin do? It started as painting a 2 bedroom apartment and I kept asking him to do
more things, and he was very accommodating. His painting is top notch and he was able to
save me from having to find 1 or 2 other contractors to get other things done. This was the
second time using Kevin. Kevin’s work is high quality, affordable, and he is flexible. I also love
that he explained things to me-why one option would be pricier than another, what an
acceptable substitute would be, etc. He’s not out to gauge you, he wants to do a quality job,
and he wants you to be happy with what you get.
~ B Porter

Kevin and his crew arrived promptly every day that weather permitted. His team was courteous
and hardworking. They showed extreme dedication especially in preparation of the house for
painting. Their painting was superb and now the house looks great. Overall we were very
happy and have plans to use them again. We’ve already recommended Kevin and his crew to

Mr. Ryan and his crew did an excellent job in a professional manner. I have no complaints.
The house looks beautiful. Mr. Ryan even helped with some color and design
~ C Trunca
Mr. Ryan and his crew were always on time, as well as very professional and courteous. Any
questions that we had during the work, were answered thoroughly and clearly. Everything was
left in a neat and clean condition and in good order. We are very pleased with the results and
would definitely use KMR Painting & Decorating again.
~ D Goehner
KMR painted the whole interior of my house. It went very well, very professional—owner is on
site and all employees were respectful. We were very happy with the end product.
~ R Fasano
KMR Painting & Decorating painted the interior of my entire house, including sanding and
staining all of my wood moldings and doors. All of the workers at KMR were very professional,
friendly and helpful. They cleaned up after themselves and put back all hardware, outlet covers,
etc. I am so pleased with their work, that I have rehired Kevin to now stain the outside of my
~ C Kerr
From the initial estimate visit through completion of the job, Kevin (owner/GC/painter) was very
professional, caring and responsive to all my questions and concerns. He has a very easy way
about him for talking things through and was always available to talk, check-in, etc. He would
advise me when he was getting close to starting. I always knew the timeline. Kevin’s crew was
very thorough and obviously cared about the quality of their work, as of course Kevin did. I
always felt he was “in charge” and making sure everything went smoothly. Kevin was also very
reasonable for the job. I got other estimates…one was lower and one was MUCH higher. I
went with Kevin not just because he was in the middle, but because he expressed a confidence
in knowing exactly what my peeling siding and decks needed. Not in an over-complicating way
that one company presented. I would highly recommend Kevin’s company, KMR Painting…and
plan to use him again when we are ready to do some painting inside the house.
