Wanted to tell you the house is looking great!
The carpenter did the two banisters yesterday and they’re perfect…also, did some other patch work which is very good. I think the stain on the top if a good color and am happy with it. I appreciate your attention and your hard working crew!
Enjoy another lovely day!

Dear George and Mr. Gikas,
We just looked at your website today and think it is great and shows off the wonderful work you do. Looking at the before and after photos of our house brought back how dreary it looked before you came in. You made such creative suggestions for colors, did a terrific job of preparation and renewal of the shingles that were in disrepair, and opened up and restored our front porch so that now we have the pleasure of sitting outside. Your team was unfailingly pleasant and professional and responsive to all of our concerns. The painting and the carpentry that you did were of the highest quality and we would certainly use your services again another time.
All the best for the future and for making Montclair even more beautiful,

Dear George and Mr. Gikas,
The most important thing to know about George and Gikas is that they are gentlemen: honest, hard-working, talented, neat, patient, and fair. Each has his unique gifts, George as a master carpenter, Gikas as a color-genius. Together they are an excellent team. No matter what we asked them to do or change on our house along the way, they did it beautifully. They took our ideas and made them a reality.
It?s impossible to overstate how satisfied we are with their work, and how enjoyable the process was for us. They painted, put on a new roof, re-built our front porch stairs, renovated our backyard porch, added gorgeous flower boxes, and fixed up the shingles and woodwork as needed. We have ten colors on our house: the men stood outside with me on a daily basis, helping choose and refine the palette. They were always patient and respectful of my vision for a lighthearted cottage-style home, enhancing and perfecting it along the way. I could not recommend them more highly.

Dear Gikas and George,
Appreciation and Thought from the Avenias:
Several years ago when we decided to paint our 1893 house we met Gikas and George who considered it a personal challenge to make the house sparkle with personality. Gikas convinced us to remove ugly asphalt shingles to reveal the beauty of our Victorian house. They knelt at the curb and silently contemplated the house, listening for the house?s character to be revealed. Then, after much thought, imagination and collaboration a Victorian Painted Lady was born. The splendor of the many harmonizing colors is a joy to behold each day. The crew who removed the shingles, sanded, repaired, primed and painted the house were very professional. They took the utmost care in all aspects of the work. Attention to detail is second nature to the team. We have been delighted with the house since its rejuvenation and continue to receive many compliments. It is said, you only get what you pay for–not so with Gikas Painting -the quality of the old world craftsmanship provided far exceeds the homeowner’s investment in the project.
Recently, the porch needed attention. In a very short time, George and the crew of skilled carpenters removed worn boards, strengthened existing beams, laid a handsome new floor and rehabilitated the rail, enhancing its beauty It is very rare to find craftsmen of this caliber and trustworthiness. We anticipate working with these fine craftsmen often on many other projects.

Dear George & Gikas,
Thank You for all the great work you did on my house. George and his carpenters did a wonderful job re-shingling /sanding the exterior of the house; with the new railing and stain on the deck it looks like new. Gikas is very confident and helpful with picking out and arranging paint colors, everyone loves the colors. The painters were very nice and hardworking
