My husband and I recently hired John Brzoza of Tones and Hues Painting to remove old wallpaper and then paint one of our bedrooms. After our initial phone call, John was here to give us a quote in just one day. He was very pleasant, removed his shoes when he came in and explained how he would take down the wallpaper and how long the job would take. Two days later he emailed our quote and we were quite pleased.

John was able to complete the work in a very timely manner. He was very respectful of our home and left everything clean. We were very happy with our bedroom and the painting looked wonderful. We would definitely hire John again for any future painting.

John Brzoza did a terrific job on several rooms of a house we bought with my daughter and her family! We needed lead abatement, painting and floor sanding done and it was time sensitive because cold weather was coming and they needed to move in. The house was in pretty rough shape and John’s excellent work improved the downstairs beyond what we expected!


John was able to fit the job in around another one he was finishing. We are all super happy with the quality of his work, and the fact that he really made the effort to get it done on time. He is very attentive to detail and the rooms he worked on are just beautiful in an old house that still needs a lot of work! John is a super nice guy and that makes having him work in your home very pleasant. 


We will be calling John Brzoza again for his painting expertise!

We used Tones & Hues Painting this summer to power wash, paint and stain our Solitude Village home on Okemo Mountain. John Brzoza did a great job! The house came out beautifully - and looked as good as it did when it was originally stained in 2008, if not better! John was great to work with - he communicated well, and was timely and efficient. His prices are very reasonable as well. I highly recommend him.

We hired John Brzoza to do some painting for us on our house. We found him to be very conscientious and careful when he is working. He did a great job and doesn't cut corners. We found him to be a good worker and easy to get along with which is a big plus.

Jay has completed many painting projects for me during the past 20 years in my 1863 Victorian home in Springfield, VT. He always comes with a smile, excellent advice and a professional attitude. Jay gives incredible attention to detail, is a perfectionist in his painting skills and is extremely knowledgeable in all aspects of the painting process. Jay is an honest and hard working man whom one can trust to finish the job to your complete satisfaction. Jay's prices are always fair, competitive, and very affordable. I HIGHLY recommend Jay for all painting projects - interior and exterior, from remodels to new construction, including both traditional and faux painting. He is neat and clean when working, is very creative, and has great ideas and color suggestions. I'm always pleased with his work!

Jay Brzoza has done painting and staining at my house in Andover at least three times, and I can recommend his high-quality work to others without reservation.

He does careful and meticulous work; but you needn't worry about paying him by the hour. He never "drags his tail." In one case, Jay did a beautiful job painting - in less than a day - interior and exterior double entrace doors that another painter had failed to do properly in several attempts.

If you've owned a home for very long, you know that contractors sometimes bring more to the job than their tools. They occasionally show up with attiture problems, an alcohol disorder, or simply a lack of skill.

In my experience, Jay Brzoza is a solid, dependable and highly skilled tradesman who brings nothing to a job except talent and dedication. No drug problems. No alcohol problems. No attitute problems. And certainly no performance problems.

Unlike some tradesmen, Jay never goes AWOL on a job, Barring an emergency, he will always show up on time and work diligently to deliver professional results.

Beyond his technical skills, he is polite, considerate and well mannered - exactly the kind of person you'd hope to have working in your home. He doesn't smoke, use foul language, and has always been considerate of my property.

jay would unquestionably be my first choice for any painting or staining work in the Weston-Londonderry-Chester-Ludlow-Springfield area.
