His motto is true "Proper Preparation Makes the Difference" this is the second time we have used Michael and his workmanship is amazing. We had a lot of drywall cracks and drywall tape peeling up. Michael repaired everything and the walls look better then when the addition was originally done. I have used other painters in the past but you can tell the prep work was just ok after they painted but not with Michael he truly takes pride in his work can't even tell any repair work was done (He is a perfectionist) I am a very picky person and not only would I use him again, I have no problem recommending him to anyone.

Mike Ricketts (Michael Ricketts Painting Contractors) has done two painting projects for us both inside and outside of our house. We were very happy with the results on both occasions. He has vast experience and an eye for detail. His work is meticulous and superb.
My husband and I would highly recommend him for any painting job.

Thank you so much for getting everything ready to show the house.

I have known Michael for over 35 years and knew he was a good painter but never had a need for his services until recently. It was a small job, our renovated bathroom, but we needed a great paint job to compliment all the new work. I called Michael. He was prompt giving me an estimate and explaining how red required more coats than other colors. His professionalism and meticulous attention to details made our bathroom pop with color and was the finishing touch we wanted. His pricing was fair and he did a fabulous job. We know will be using him again when we started our kitchen renovations. The length of time he has been a painter in this area speaks to the quality of his work and the loyalty that his customers have for the jobs he completes. He is a genuinely nice man who you can trust in your home to give you a fair price for a fabulous job!

Thank you for doing such great work and for leaving the house so clean each night. And we felt very comfortable leaving our house in your care while we were at work.
We love having the halls, kitchen, and quarter-round in place. The house finally looks finished, even though it's not..
Bryan is the Master of our Angie's List account, so when we're home together we'll log in and add a glowing reference.
Christ and Bryan September 30, 2015
We were thrilled to see that the project was already done yesterday. It looks great and as usual, we were very happy with your work.
Lynn September 30, 2015
I just wanted to give you a "Job Well Done" on our home last month.
Both the painting and stucco work look great!. I also wante to say that your professionalism, on time as promised, and cleanup were absolutely commendable.
We highly recommend your services to anyone interested, as well as use you again when the need arises.
Once again, thank you for the great work. It was, and will be a pleasure, working with you.
Pete & Margaretann September 30, 2015
I would recommend Ricketts Painting for all your painting needs. Michael and his crew do a wonderful job. They are prompt, neat, and courteous. The latest paint job has made a great difference in the curb appeal of my home. There's no need for me to go through the process of estimates for any future jobs. I'll just call Michael!
MB Miller July 16, 2015
The Ricketts crew did an excellent job through high quality work and executing the project within our timeline. Michael is professional, friendly and easy to work with! Fresh paint provided a much needed update to our new home!
Coleen Fink July 16, 2015
We've had Mike and his team work with us on exterior woodwork and stucco for 10 years, including a repeat visit. We wouldn't bother going to another painter since we have been satisfied with the value, quality, and professionalism that Mike has offered us. Not only does his live up to his "proper preparation" slogan, but he takes the job further to assure that underlying repairs are taken care of before the paint goes on. He has a great eye for color, texture, and sheen, and has worked hard to make sure surfaces match, even though paint technology has changed so much. A winner!
Mr. & Mrs. Heibert Havertown July 16, 2015
Michael Ricketts recently completed the painting of my family room, living room and hallway. The hallway is two stories high and quite an undertaking. I was very pleased with the quality work he did. His attention to details, cleanliness and completion of the job in accordance with the written estimate distinguishes him as a true professional. I would hire him again and recommend him to anyone needing his services.
Sergio Tobia Wallingford July 16, 2015
We have benefitted from Michael's professionalism and skills since the late 70s to the present. His work skills are superb. His commitment to leaving the project cleaner than when he came-outstanding. We refer him to anyone who asks us for a recommendation that comes under the umbrella of Michael's talents. It’s been a privilege to have Michael improve, refurbish, and enhance our home for close to forty years.
Ann and Mayer Selekman Bala Cynwyd July 16, 2015
Of the 3 painters that came to provide quotes for Colleen and Mark today at Powder Mill Rd., you were the only one who arrived on time, which says a lot to me, and is greatly appreciated. You were also the only one who gave me a card!I did check out your website and found it very informative. I was unaware of all your services so I’m extremely glad I took the time to look it over.
Laurie Matthias Long and Foster Real Estate July 16, 2015
Professional, timely & personable service….We were especially pleased with the attention to details & high standards from start to finish….no cutting corners & a high quality result that sets Mike’s work apart from that of others that we have used in the past….. fair pricing worth every cent!
Peter & Julianne Roe Havertown July 16, 2015
Thank you Michael Ricketts Painting for making our awful and old Master Bedroom into a beautiful new space. Michael Ricketts was wonderful to work with, he was on time every day and I never felt uncomfortable with him in my home. He kept me updated on the progress of the work and he and his assistant were not only polite but kept everything clean and tidy. The work was done on time and the cost was very reasonable. I will be using Michael Ricketts for all of the painting work in my house from now on.
Susan Havertown July 16, 2015
We have used Ricketts Painting contractors for two painting projects at our home in the past two years. From providing a fair and reasonable estimate to cleaning up during and after the job, we have been extremely happy with Ricketts. I would highly recommend Ricketts to everyone.
Lynn Meaney July 16, 2015
Michael has completed a number of jobs in our home. He has installed crown modeling, built and installed a new closet and built-in bookcase in our daughter's bedroom, replaced our basement ceiling and windows, helped with our kitchen remodel, and painted numerous areas inside and outside. We are always impressed with the quality and meticulousness of his work, jobs our finished in a timely manner and we trust him to work in our home when we are not present. We can also count on Michael to always make sure that we are completely satisfied whether it be upon finishing a job or months later when we need something touched up. We would highly recommend Michael for work in your home.
Josh and Tracy D. Havertown July 16, 2015
Michael Ricketts Painting painted our dental office this Spring. They did an absolutely beautiful job! They are committed to providing exceptional quality and customer service. They were very professional and a pleasure to do business with. I would recommend Michael Ricketts painting to anyone who needs an experienced, detail oriented painter who gets the job done right. I would only consider Michael Ricketts painting for future painting and contracting needs.
Deborah Brennan DMD and Staff Newtown Square July 16, 2015
Mike and his crew took our master bathroom down to the studs and built a beautiful new space including wet-bed tile and custom granite. It’s been over a year since the job was completed and we still marvel at the quality and durability of his work. We look forward to working with Mike on future projects.
John Tobias and Rebecca Wells Wynnewood July 16, 2015
Michael is a breath of fresh air and a true professional! Unlike so many contractors, Michael goes out of his way to assure the job gets done right in a timely manner. For example, one color came out more 'washed out' than my wife and I had imagined it would - even after Michael had applied 4 or 5 coats. Michael insisted that he repaint the area in a different shade that we were happy with. It came out great. We also appreciated that Michael communicated well and honestly - he gave us realistic timing estimates and kept us informed about his progress. It is always a pleasure doing business with a genuinely nice guy that you can trust!
Ed Philadelphia July 16, 2015
I highly recommend Michael H. Ricketts for your painting needs. I have been thoroughly pleased with his work on several occasions over the last decade. He not only prices competitively, he keeps you informed and is one contractor that completes the job when they say they will and does impeccable work.
With Michael Ricketts professional touch, my mom’s house was transformed from the 70’s look into a fresh, clean and modern home. She received several bids soon afterward. I recommend him and will definitely hire him in the future, especially if you are planning on putting your home on the market.
Jeanne Montgomery Havertown July 16, 2015
We recently needed some painting and carpenter work done in our home.
As a senior citizen, unfortunately, the fear of being taken over by a contractor with over pricing, shoddy workmanship, or incomplete work is always out there.
I found Michel's name in the yellow pages, contacted him, and ask him to stop by our home and give me an estimate on the work we needed done. He returned my call the same day, and was here within two days, did a walk through, sat down, and did some figuring, and came up with our estimate.
I was pleased with the estimate, and with Michael's demeanor and his professional opinion toward the work that needed to be completed. I was also very happy to find a local man who does painting and carpentry work.
I could not have been more pleased with the work done in our home:
Michael's price was reasonable and within our budget. They were neat and respectful of our home and possessions as they went about his work. They cleaned-up, and replaced furniture and wall hangings all back into their original places.
I am very proud of the completed work, and the way our home looks today. My neighbors were very complementary of Michael’s work and I know who they will call when they need work done.
Lou July 16, 2015
Michael Ricketts Painting recently competed the repainting of our Parish rectory. Michael and his staff were a pleasure to work with. They were totally reliable, always on-time, treated our space as if it were their own and did a great job. Their attention to preparation – including carefully stripping of old wall paper and the seamless repair of water-damaged walls – made the final result possible. We would recommend them highly.
Vic DiFelice Valley Forge July 16, 2015
Mike has been our preferred painting contractor for many years now. He does a fantastic job, is punctual and pays great attention to detail. He recently painted our kitchen and attached family room. We highly recommend his services.
David & Marilisa Patten Havertown July 16, 2015
Thanks for the absolutely beautiful painting and refinishing job you did in our 100 year old home. We had very old wallpaper and you removed every bit, (quite an undertaking), refinished the walls and painted them perfectly. They look brand new! We really appreciated your professionalism and promptness every day. We felt your estimate was more than fair. We were also pleased with the total clean up you performed each day. The job was performed neatly and in an optimum time frame. Now when we walk through the front door it feels like a new house. Thanks again!
Jil Hollenbach July 16, 2015
Wow! Is all I can say about Ricketts Painting. They were prompt, professional and courteous. I hardly knew they were there when they were working. After they were finished for the day they made sure everything was cleaned up. I am very happy with the quality of work and will definitely use them in the future.
