Tim - Beverly, MA 01915
Just had No Risk Painting complete a full re-staining of my house. The team was terrific! They showed up on time every day, worked hard and were extremely conscientious about their work. With pets and small children, I was concerned about the stain flakes from the power washing and scraping process, but they cleaned up all of the areas that hadn't been covered by the drop cloths they put down before starting. They left the site clean and tidy at the end of each day, checked in with me daily on the status of the work and their progress on the job. They asked questions on specific areas/items that needed to be addressed, and provided me with appropriate recommendations on items that needed to be repaired as part of the process. We had a team of 4 men, same guys came every day, who were polite, clean and had a terrific positive/can-do attitudes. I was extremely impressed. They clearly took a "do it right" the first time attitude to the job, which I really appreciated. I would recommend them without hesitation to a friend or colleague.
Lynne - Andover, MA 01810
I would highly recommend No Risk Painting as I have used them twice. The crew was professional, polite, neat and quiet. They did an outstanding job painting the exterior of my house! The crew showed up on time and completed the job quickly to my satisfaction.
Diane - Holbrook, MA 02351
We would highly recommend No Risk Painting to be the company you use to paint your home. My wife and I are extremely pleased with the quality of work that Jamie and his crew delivered. They were very thorough and extremely hard working. They arrived each day by 7:30 am and worked until 7:00 pm barely taking a break for lunch. At the end of each day Daniel reviewed the day's work with us and immediately addressed any areas of concern that my wife and I had. The job site was always cleaned up and organized when they were done for the day. Everything in the end was done to our complete satisfaction and the house looks absolutely beautiful!! We highly recommend No Risk Painting to anyone looking for high quality workmanship. Please feel free to use us as a reference. Thanks again for a job well done!!
Stephen - Norwell, MA 02061

Julie & Bill - Wrentham, MA 02093
No Risk Painting did a great job on our home. They completed the job more quickly than I had requested, they showed up on time every day and the crew was friendly and professional. They cleaned the house thoroughly and sealed all cracks and holes before painting. We are very pleased with the final product.
Elizabeth - Natick, MA 01760
I am extremely pleased with the work. The crew we had did an outstanding job. Very meticulous and clean. Not only does the house look like brand new, there is zero evidence the crew was even there...not a spot of paint on anything that shouldn't have it! From Rich the salesperson, to Marcia in the office and Jamie’s paint crew it was a first class experience the entire way. They were on-time, on-budget and truly professional in every sense of the word. I highly recommend doing business with them.
Jim - Bridgewater, MA 02324
We thought the house paint job was terrific and the paint crew was a joy to work with. The guys listened to our concerns about our house and addressed all issues quickly and professionally. The administrative office was wonderful as well, working with me to resolve a couple of minor issues. We will definitely use this paint company again!
Jenny - Beverly, MA 01915
Jose and his crew were awesome! They worked very hard and finished the job in 2 and 1/2 days. My house still looks beautiful a year later. Thank you.
Joanne - Weymouth, MA 02188
Based on my experience with No Risk Painting and the work they did in painting my home I would say they excelled in the three P's. They were always prompt, always polite and always professional. A great many people take walks through my neighborhood and whenever I am outside tending to my flower beds or just getting the mail I receive many compliments on the appearance of my home and I am happy to share with them the name of the company that painted it.
Virginia - Stoughton, MA 02072
No Risk painted our house in 2012 almost 2 years ago now. The painters apparently did a good job since after 2 winters the finish is still fully intact and looks great other than some minor wear one would expect. There is no substitute for the test of time when it comes to a paint job, improper prep and application can significantly reduce longevity. The job itself was completed when they said they would do it and the painters were courteous, cleaned up after themselves and were careful not to damage the landscaping, etc. The house was scraped and painted by hand - its clapboard and the previous finish was in poor shape requiring much scraping. The painting was done with brushes and not spraying. Talented contractors. Would recommend them and use them again ourselves. The price was very competitive with the other quotes we had.
Dan - Natick, MA 01760
Last year we had our house painted and were very pleased with the results. The crew that painted the house were punctual, thorough, and efficient. They were the same painters every day. They arrived early in the morning, stayed until near sundown, cleaned up after themselves, and were politely responsive to all our concerns and questions about the work. The quality of their work could be described as excellent, from surface preparation to the final coat of paint. If all the crews employed by No Risk Painting are of the same caliber, I would recommend the company to anyone without hesitation.
Richard - Monument Beach, MA 02553
I contracted with No Risk to do work to the exterior of my home. They did an OUTSTANDING job! Very prompt and professional to boot. I am not the easiest of clients, admittedly, but Jamie dealt with all my demands without any problem. Highly recommended.
Jeff - Canton, MA 02021
We had a very positive experience with No Risk Painting - Twice! We had No Risk paint our house in Newton in 2011 to prepare it for sale, then in 2012 we engaged No Risk again to paint our house in NH. Their estimator was very courteous and efficient, as well as recommending the scope of work that should be included, which quality of paint would be our best choice, etc. Needless to say, their prices are competitive as we did business with them twice in two years. Their policy of requiring up-front payment only for the paint, with the balance due only when all the work is completed to our satisfaction is a great program, much better than terms required by other painting contractors. On both jobs the painting subcontractors brought crews of men who worked very hard and completed the work quickly. The workers were polite and the painting crew bosses were responsive to any requests we made. They used big tarps to collect scrapings, and cleaned up at the end of each day. They also used a shop vac to vacuum clean the gardens and lawn! I recommend No Risk without hesitation.
Paul - Strafford, NH 03884
I hired No Risk Painting in the Fall 2012. I assumed it would take a week to complete the exterior trim work. On the first day, Eder’s army showed up and completed the entire job by the end of the day. I was so surprised! My house looked great. A year and half later, it still looks great. I would strongly recommend this company to anyone who's looking for a paint company.
Andrew - Duxbury, MA 02332
Had our duplex painted by No Risk Painting. They were professional and clean. Job finished when they said and job was done perfect. I would highly recommend this company. The crew worked the entire weekend to finish the job on time.
Deb - Plainville, MA 02762
They did a great job. Pricing was competitive and their service was great. Very happy with the work and the entire experience. Thanks!
Frank - N. Easton, MA 02357
No Risk Painting was very professional. They came when they said they would and cleaned up after the house was painted. They only thing they left behind was a great paint job.
Patricia - Canton, MA 02021
I was very happy with the job this company did on painting the trim on my house. They were a thorough professional crew.
Terry - Foxboro, MA 02035
My wife and I are very pleased with the outside paint job this company performed on our house. The materials used and the crew were the best. The house was painted quickly and professionally. I would recommend this company both for price and quality of job performed.
Joseph - Sandwich, MA 02537
Excellent experience. The crew was on time, asked me if I had any questions or concerns throughout the process and were very courteous. The paint job was top notch. I can't say enough good about my experience with No Risk Painting. I would refer them to anyone needing painting.
Jonathan - Duxbury, MA 02332
My experience with No Risk Painting was truly outstanding. I have painted no less than 15 houses and consider myself a perfectionist, but the No Risk crew did a better job than I would have on my house. The communication and professionalism of the crew was excellent, the price fair and quality was there. I have already recommended No Risk Painting to others, and do so without reservation!
Mark - Duxbury, MA 02332
Always on time. Called beforehand. Did a very thorough job and took care of all the details I asked for. Very polite hard working gentlemen very happy with the work.
Linda - Bourne, MA 02553
Elvin and his crew from No Risk Painting did an outstanding job! They were neat and professional and answered all of my questions. They showed up when they said and left late every night. They did everything I asked and more. They truly made having the house painted an enjoyable experience.
Steve - Stoneham, MA 02180
No Risk Painting first painted my house in 2011. At that time, I thought they had done an exceptional job at a very competitive price. They offered me a 5 year warranty (standard with two final coats). Due to harsh winter storms in 2011 and 2012, the paint on the North face of the house started to blister and peel. I contacted No Risk to honor their warranty. I am happy to report that they did so - at absolutely no cost to me. Once again, the company sent a very professional crew who took care of the job in one day. They scraped, sanded, primed and applied two full coats. They even fixed some rotted wood under the mailbox, even though I didn't think it was covered under the warranty. I didn't even have to pay for the paint. I would recommend No Risk Painting without reservation.
Barry - Cambridge, MA 02138
I was skeptical at first because the price seemed so inexpensive. Jamie came out and did a written price quote for me and gave me a timeline as to when the work would start. Flavio and crew came out and power washed, sanded, scraped and primed and painted. They were extremely nice, cleaned up any chips etc. I am really happy with their work and will recommend them to anyone.
Bill - Newton, MA 02459
The team from No Risk was wonderful. They were very professional, showed up on time every day and did exactly what they said they were going to do when they said they were going to do it. They are an extremely hard working bunch of guys! At the end of every day they cleaned up and put everything neatly away. The job came out even better than I anticipated and I have had many neighbors ask me for the name of the company that did the work. Thank you No Risk and crew for all of your hard work in the hot sun. I am very grateful.
R. - N. Easton, MA 02356
We recently hired No Risk painting to do a paint job for us. It was a great experience, from the office personnel all the way to the paint crew. The crew painting our house were on time, polite, and cleaned up well after they were done. All in all I would highly recommend No Risk Painting.
Tom - Abington, MA 02351
Excellent customer service, quality work, reasonable pricing, and very good clean up.
John - Milton, MA 02186
No Risk Painting did a high quality job at a very fair price.
John - Holbrook, MA 02343
No Risk Painting led by Jamie Clark did a fantastic job on both the exterior of our home and the interior of our home. While the job was relatively small, his team transformed the appearance of our home. We had his team complete the trim, shutters and doors around our entire home. His team was thorough taking me through each portion of their work after completion. The company's pricing was fair and the crew was extremely diligent in leaving our home clean in the interior and exterior after each day. Two of our neighbors complemented me on both the look of the house and the efforts of the crew after the project was completed. I would recommend No Risk Painting without reservation.
Tim - Waban, MA 02468
What a great experience. No Risk Painting company had my house painted within 2 weeks of my first call. They were eager to please and do the job right. Thanks to Jamie and Marcia for all their hard work. I'm extremely pleased with their work and would highly recommend this company. My house is the proof of their great work.
Deb - West Wareham, MA 02576
No Risk Painting, Boston has just finished painting my house in Dedham. The workers were very accommodating and polite even though we had to ask for delays in the proposed schedule! We would be glad to have you inspect the site if you call my Cell.
Verity - Dedham, MA 02026
We were completely satisfied with the salesmanship, the pricing, and the diligence of the workforce. They were quiet and neat and did the job very quickly. We would recommend them to anyone. It was truly a job well done.
Joseph - Woburn, MA 01801
Our house was painted in a very professional way. We would recommend them to anyone who should ask.
Donald - Wilmington, MA 01887
No-Risk Painting fulfilled all of its contractual obligations on a timely and professional manner. The initial contact with the salesman was timely and thorough. The contract was clear as to what would or would not be included in the painting job. The painting team was efficient and kept me informed in their progress and in pointing out problems encountered. Most important they did a very professional painting job and cleaned up after themselves when finished.
Lou - Peabody, MA 01960
No Risk painting did a great job! They worked with our schedule, were extremely neat workers and did the job very quickly! They did everything they promised and finished before I expected. We came home to a home that looked brand new. I would highly recommend them.
Jody - Blackstone, MA 01504
No Risk did a great job painting our house and working with us. We wanted to paint the shutters ourselves. They removed them, we painted and they put them back up. They did a great job painting and left no mess.
Mark - Milton, MA 02186
I am very pleased with the job that No Risk Painting did in painting (brown stain) my three family home. The crew was very responsive and responsible and did a few extra things asked of them. I would highly recommend them; their price was very competitive and I feel I really got my money's worth and an excellent value for the work done.
Dolores - Somerville, MA 02145
Used No Risk to paint our house. Standard colonial with clapboard siding, significant peeling of old paint. No Risk appears to be using sub-contractors for all their work so depending on which crew does the work results will likely vary. That said, the 2 man crew that did our house was good. Matched the existing color very well after I gave them a can of the old paint from a different manufacturer for comparison. Took down the shutters, did a relatively thorough scraping of the loose stuff after power wash, then primed all the bare spots and caulked/filled holes. Primed and painted the gutters, then painted the trim and body - all by hand with brushes, no spraying. Cleaned up after themselves daily and did minimal damage to plantings around house. Weather held during the job and they finished in about a week or so. Completed job looks great after 1 month but time will tell. Their preparation was good so I believe the finish will last as long as can be expected. Overall I think the job was a good value, could have paid considerably more for essentially the same thing.
Dan - Natick, MA 01760
I was extremely pleased with the price, service and follow-up I received from No Risk Painting. The crew was very courteous and arrived on time. They covered shrubs, porch surfaces and walks and did an excellent job. I was also impressed by the follow-up process and the people I spoke with in the office. I won't hesitate to recommend this company to others, or employ the services again in the future.
Doug - Needham, MA 02492
The entire staff at No Risk Painting, Sales, Production, Painters, and even the switchboard operator, were professional. They did what they promised to do and it was a pleasure to do business with them. The painting crew was also on time, very good at what they do, and cleaned up at the end of each day.
Steve - Sandwich, MA 02563
I was delighted with the service I received start to finish. They explained the process in detail, required only the cost of the paint up front, arrived with a crew early and stayed all day to complete the job. It was looking so great I decided the front door and sidelights could use some sprucing up too. The gentleman was gracious, called the office for the O.K. I was charged a reasonable rate for the additional work, he had me select the color from his paint deck and even went to have it mixed for me. This company delivered on all their promises and my husband and I were pleased with their workmanship, I would recommend!
Karen - West Wareham, MA 02576
No risk was a pleasure to deal with. I would recommend them to anyone. Very hard working crew. The finished product was great. If you want a great paint job, without breaking the bank, then No Risk is your company.
Chris - Attleboro, MA 02703
No Risk Painting prepared our house for painting and did some repairs before painting the exterior. A crew of five did an amazing job bringing our 100+ year house back to life. Everyone at No Risk Painting made the whole experience very easy. After the painting was complete we did a walk through to make sure everything was perfect and the property was clear of any debris. Don't waste your time interviewing painting companies. No Risk Painting will deliver and more. I wish we had painted our home earlier it really looks great. Thank you to everyone at No Risk Painting.
Home owner – Scituate, MA 02066
We got several estimates and they were the best. They've done so much extra work so I recommend them highly. I will absolutely use them again.
Paul - Woburn, MA 02155
Exterior power wash and painting. We have used No Risk Painting 3 times in the past 5 years and found their work to be exceptional...and, very cost-effective. I'd strongly recommend their work as they stand by everything they do. Jamie Clark, who runs the business, totally gets the client service thing. They deserve your very best ratings! Fabulously! Came out...gave a detailed written cost estimate. We agreed on a price and they gave me a date to do the work. They were done in a day!
Craig - Marblehead, MA 01945
Excellent value for the money! The work went very well!
Matthew - MA 02043
They were very professional. They were very pleasant people to deal with. They kept in touch all the time.
Danna - Worcester, MA 01606
I had a great experience with the work that was completed. I was not aware they used subcontractors, with that said Sandro Souzo and his crew that completed the work were fantastic. I have never seen 4 men work so hard, getting the work done in record time. They were very accommodating and professional. I am very pleased with the work and would have Sandro back any day.
Lorie - Roslindale, MA 02131
NRP power-washed all surfaces, scraped and sanded (as required), replaced damaged/rotten siding and window trim, and primed and painted entire house (including siding, trim, shutters and front steps). Overall, the experience with NRP was thoroughly satisfying. This was a complicated job. The house is a massive, 18th-century colonial, converted to condominiums (3 units) in the 1980’s. All unit owners are busy professionals with demanding schedules and high expectations. Jamie, the owner of NRP, bent over backwards to accommodate our schedules and our requirements related to documentation (certificate of liability insurance, evidence of workers' compensation, detailed estimate and invoice, etc.). The job went quickly and smoothly. The crew members were exceptionally professional, courteous to the unit owners and conscientiously cleaning up at the end of each day. The crew supervisor routinely provided updates on the progress of the job. When the job was done, the crew replaced the storm windows and screens, removed all debris, raked the landscape setting around the house, and power-washed the deck and patio. We'll definitely be calling these guys again, the next time the house needs painting.
Katrina - Newburyport, MA 01950
Overall very pleased with work. The house looks very nice. Crew was professional and courteous. The price was the lowest of the estimates that we received. The price was still low. I would use them again.
Howard - Concord, MA 01742
He gave me an estimate on exterior painting for the entire house, including gutters. They have been very professional. I'm going to call today and hire them. They were very responsive. Their prices were lower than everyone else's. We had about five estimates, where some people addressed a lead paint issue and some didn't. This company paid attention to that.
Mary - Concord, MA 01742
Complete exterior of house trim and siding washed, primed, sealed and painted (latex paint for trim and stain for siding).
Member Comments: No Risk Painting prepared the existing exterior siding and trim by power-washing, sanding and sealing. I opted for a complete prime and top-coat on the trim and siding (with a 5 year written warranty) rather than a spot-prime and top-coat (3 year written warranty). My siding required a stain rather than latex paint which probably lowered the overall price. There were extremely few paint splashes at the end of the work. When the painters did not detach hoses or clear-up properly after an early paint session I was able to speak to them the next morning about this, and this situation was not repeated. The painters were polite, worked extremely hard in very hot weather and did a great job. I had two other estimates for the same work which were at least $1000 higher. These were also A-listed companies on Angie's List. I ultimately selected the painter by price and warranty as all seemed professional and courteous.
Mari - Sudbury, MA 01776
We were looking for a painter to paint the exterior trim on our house in order to get it real estate ready. We found an ad for the company in the mail and gave them a call. They came out fairly quickly to provide a free estimate and left a detailed quote (but I didn't find it for a few days since we don't use the front door much). At first I thought it was a little high but compared to other quotes we received, it was comparable and ended up being cheaper than the other company we were considering. Once we decided to use them, and after I explained that we needed someone quickly since we want to list the house for sale ASAP, Jamie sent a crew out within 2 days. We figured it was a big job based on all the scraping and trim painting that needed to be done. The crew foreman was professional and courteous and said they would complete the job the same day. Well to our surprise they did! The crew did a great job and cleaned up after themselves. The only issue I encountered was on the quote they included the front stairs to be stained although I did not request it. The stain they picked up was not the existing color, but the trim color. It would not match so I requested them to omit painting the stairs. They did not have any of the porch floor color on hand but the crew foreman had me pick out a new color from their palette. I picked out a color I liked better than the existing one and he had the floor painted. Overall it was a good experience and were we not moving, I would have had them do the house too.
Deanna - Norton, MA 02766
The work was flawless, and they were a pleasure to deal with.
John - Hingham, MA
He was very good, value was very good. I have sent them to my sister in law. He is very professional, on time, excellent value, would use them again.
Chris - Malden, MA
I would recommend no risk painting
job well done any places that needed touching up were addressed promptly and with a smile
I was most satisfied that they did such a neat job. It was very neat and they didn't get paint everywhere.
I would highly recommend them for someone else in need.
I was satisfied most that they did some work over and above the actual painting of the house. There were repair issues (woodwork, the house is over 40 years old) that they had to deal with before doing my the painting. I did pay for this, but I really appreciated it. I think they used their own crew for that. Their preparation work was excellent as well.
The results of their work exceeded my expectations. The quality of the products that they utilized was excellent. The work was more than satisfactory.
I was most satisfied with how quickly No Risk Painting did everything.
I absolutely think they did an amazing job!
They sent me the best crew they had they were really terrific.
I was most satisfied that they fulfilled their warranty obligations.
The work that they performed was warranty work. We found paint that was peeling off on our house. They worked very well with us.

I would recommend with no reservations.
Met/exceeded my expectations
Professional, courteous, did a good job. Great to work with & good value for cost of project.
I as particularly impressed by the initial person who came out to do the estimate. He was very knowledgable and wasn't pushy at all.
I had a lot of little detailed things that I wanted done, and they were very meticulous about making sure those requests were met.
My parents used No Risk Painting this past summer for the exterior of their house and couldn't have been happier with the outcome. From the initial meeting to the cleanup upon completion, No Risk was professional, on schedule, and an absolute pleasure to work with. My father had painted the house himself for the last 40+ years and will never pick up a brush again with No Risk just a call away!
