Thank you for letting me tell you a little bit about my family business. I am John Freeman the owner and founder of Cutting Edge Painting Inc. For me, contracting and painting is a family affair that goes back four generations. In 1996, I opened the business, and since the beginning I have focused on building a company culture of honesty, dependability and attention to detail.

It has been a truly rewarding experience that has given me the opportunity to work with the best craftspeople and professionals around and to work for people who care about value as much as we do. We are always looking for the best people to start with.

The guys did a fabulous job removing my tile backsplash and repairing the walls in my kitchen as well as installing new baseboards and painting. They always kept me informed and updated on the progress. They were very friendly and courteous. You were always on time and were very efficient. We'll definitely have you back for other jobs.
