Fine Painters since 1985

Founded 1985

newtonentry1ABE SCHICKEL & CO. was founded in 1985 when I moved to Newton, Massachusetts and began painting houses in Brookline, Newton and Cambridge. As my reputation for fine preparation and craftsmanship grew, so did my company. We now employ full-time professional painters.

Every detail of our work matters to us: from promptly returning phone calls to thoroughly cleaning a jobsite when a project is completed. Customers from 1985 continue to call us for additional projects. Their loyalty and trust in the durability and honesty of our work makes us proud.

"It was great. Abe was on top of all the details including scheduling, orienting his crew to the job, color selection, and being very clear with me about what I needed to do and what to expect during the process. I have two small boys (one has asthma), Abe and his crew worked with me to determine the best order of projects to minimize the effect on them and were very careful about doing their best to contain the paint fumes to the areas they were working on at the time. I can't say how much the effort meant to me. My favorite part was the thorough questionnaire Abe sent me before sending his crew. He covered all the details of the job so there were no surprises for either of us. He also included helpful info about paint. The painters were clean, efficient and were careful about rehanging blinds and putting back anything they moved. I am very happy with the end result."
