Don Lakin and Crew have always done a great job painting and decorating both inside and out of our 1868 Schoolhouse in Bull Valley. The work is sometimes challenging, but a great job is always the result.

“Thank you Don for all the great work you do for me on my jobs, you are a very professional painter and take pride in your work.” “Thank You”

" It is with great satisfaction that we recommend Aaron Lakins, for any painting project. Our Superstore Showroom, in Volo was power washed, primed and painted (two coats) in a thoroughly professional manner. Don explained all of the various components of his bid; he answered all of our questions and made several cost-savings suggestions that demonstrated his technical expertise. Also, he help with replacing and repairing some needed areas on our building. We particularly appreciated the personal supervision that he provided to his efficient crew. Finally, we found the timeliness of this project to be remarkable. It was begun shortly after the bid was accepted and was completed when expected. Come see for yourself at the SE corner of Route 120 and Route 12."

"Over the years, through several home projects, Aaron Lakins Home Decorators has always provided us with friendly service and quality workmanship at a fair price."

“I have been using Don Lakin to paint the interior and exterior of my house since May of 2005. After a few mishaps with other painters, my neighbor gave me Don's number and I have been extremely happy with his professionalism and his expert advice in helping me decorate as far as choosing the right colors. He is also dependable and fair in price for the quality of work he does every time I use him.”
