"Mike is not only a skilled craftsman by training and an authentic person of integrity by painstaking personal-development; but has also leveraged a tremendous intrinsic visual acuity toward a successful career in painting and color management. The projects he has successfully completed for me have increased over time, from fixing broken windows after my daughter's birthday(!) to advising on color strategy. Mike would be ideal for someone looking for a high-end personal or business handyman, or for a commercial property owner looking to outsource their facilities management to a turnkey contracting artisan. Couple his expertise with the home organizing & decorating paradigm of an equally-qualified wife, and you'll find a demonstrably synergistic team for all your needs and more."

"It's my pleasure to recommend Michael for home improvement services. He is a hardworking individual, ethical in his business dealings, and exhibits a high degree of personal integrity. Michael came to our home to provide an estimate for home improvement services on our residence and he was professional in his demeanor. He noted all the areas that we had concerns about and made excellent suggestions in how to best accomplish our goals. He provided a requested detailed quotation for services within 24 hours and based on a comparison of other vendors' rates, we found his to be highly competitive. Bottom line, Michael's expertise and work ethic are the best. I would have no problem further engaging his services in the future." 

  ~ Ed B.   Santa Rosa, CA


"Michael is meticulous, dependable, honest and one of the hardest working people I know. I would highly recommend him for your job. I am sure you will be pleased with his work." 

  ~ Nicole C.   Novato, CA

"Michael is great in many respects and we recommend him highly. First, he has a superb sense of color. Even before we hired him, he came to our house and gave us valuable detailed advice with no obligation. Soon thereafter, we hired him to repaint several rooms in our house. Before we hired him we thought we had a pretty good idea what colors we wanted, but as it turned out Michael had a better sense of what we wanted than we did ourselves. The decision was ours, of course, but his advice was extremely helpful. We followed his recommendations, and have never regretted it. Once our decisions were made, Michael moved ahead with thoroughness and an impressive attention to detail. His desire to keep the workplace tidy, even while his work was in progress for more than a week, was outstanding. We also enjoyed the opportunity to get to know Michael personally, since my wife and I were both home during the time he worked."

 ~ Bingham K.   Mill Valley, CA


"Michael transformed my new office in Marin with the simple stoke of a paintbrush. It is amazing what a difference a professional paint job can do for a business. Clients comment all the time on what a lovely office I have and how comfortable they feel when they arrive here. Michael helped me select just the right color scheme to create a relaxing atmosphere that complements my furnishings. And he completed the entire job in just two days! Michael's painting and color services are a great value!"

"Michael Burdette has completed a number of home interior painting projects for me over the past year. I have been very satisfied with the end result each time. What sets Michael apart from every other painter I've worked with is his innate sense of color. Michael is very gifted in color selection for enhancement, integration, and the intangible aspect of 'feeling'. Michael is what I call a 'color intuitive'. What that means is that he knows the energetic and tonal qualities as well as the aesthetic of colors. He may not articulate it in those terms, but Michael certainly guides you in those directions. Another great quality to Michael's work is his fastidiousness and desire to keep his painting environment clean and orderly. Michael tapes-off and covers the painting areas thoroughly and carefully. This translates into virtually no paint splatters or accidents at all. Michael is a very good person. When I've been a little slow in paying my invoices to him, he did not pressure me. He trusted my word and was very patient. Not too many businesses would do that for you. Michael's Painting and Home Improvements is one of those small businesses that represents the spirit of Sonoma County and the North Bay, wonderfully."

 ~ Fred F.   Rohnert Park, CA


"Michael is a very detail-oriented person with a lifetime of experience in painting and home-improvement. He's easy to get along with and can provide the much-needed skill of helping to choose just the right color for your room or whole house. Honesty and integrity are truly key aspects of this man and his work." 

  ~ Margaret P.   Sebastopol, CA 

"Mike helped us get our children's closets reorganized. He ripped out the old system, repainted, and installed the new system. I was amazed at how quickly and efficiently he worked and I'm thrilled with the end result! He paid attention to detail and his workmanship is excellent. He and his wife, Gina, made a superb team as she helped us organized everything back into the new system. I can't wait to have them do MY closet next!"

 ~ April R.   Novato, CA

"Michael's color consulting and understanding of the calming and mood enhancing properties of "just the right color" for you, is second to none. He will help guide you in creating the look and atmosphere you desire with professionalism, experience and quality!"

 ~ Tina L.   Petaluma, CA


"Quality work. Executed with excellence and care. Honest, friendly service. That’s what you’ll get if you hire Michael Burdette. I’ve known him for years and I trust him completely. I recommend his work wholeheartedly and without reservation."

 ~ Bryna H.   Novato, CA

"Michael never fails to impress me with his professionalism, expertise and technical ability. He always asks thought provoking questions about the end results we want; and consistently delivers more than we knew we wanted. What I especially appreciate is his attention to detail in every aspect of whatever work he does for us. He is both an artist and a craftsman which has been a hard combination to find!" 

 ~ Pam A.   Santa Rosa, CA


"Michael is a loyal, hard working and dedicated person - always with a smile and good humor. I have worked with Michael on several of my home projects and find him to be friendly, outgoing and easy to be around. I recommend him."     

  ~ Judy S.   Santa Rosa, CA


"Michael is an absolutely wonderful guy! He is hardworking, reliable, and extremely trustworthy. He is an expert in his field and I highly recommend hiring him if you need any painting done to the inside or outside of your house! The transformation he has made to my home is amazing. I'm SO glad I hired him and you will be, too!!" 

  ~ Amy B.   Sebastopol, CA


"I have worked with Michael in the past on various projects and he was always ethical and professional. He paid great attention to detail and made sure not only the project was done right but also in a timely manner. He was always upfront and honest with all clientele and showed great confidence in his work."

  ~ Dennis C.   San Diego, CA


"Michael always delivers the goods! Whatever project he works on with us, we always get more than we expect. He has taught us the importance of using color to enhance our home and home offices. Most importantly he helped us pick colors that work for us, which is not our skill-set! His technical expertise as a painter is well complemented by his attention to detail, clear communication and daily clean-up so that our house remains functional once he's gone for the day. We could not recommend him more highly."

 ~ Bill A.   Santa Rosa, CA


"We hired Michael to install new closet systems in 2 of our closets, including removing the old system and repainting. The end result was beautiful. The quality of his painting and work is excellent. He definitely takes pride in his work and doesn't settle for second best results. He was very respectful toward our home as well; no mess, no paint drips or splatter, no nicks or dings in walls. And, on top of it all, he finished the work a full half day ahead of plan. I would wholeheartedly recommend Michael to anyone." 

 ~ Mike R.   Novato, CA


"Michael is an excellent craftsman. He is reliable and consistent, and the results are spectacular! Michael can transform a single room or your whole house - I love him." 

 ~ Ruth H.   Rohnert Park, CA



"My wife and I invited Michael to our home to get an estimate on painting all our interior trim and doors. The next day we received an estimate via email that was very reasonable. We asked him to bring back some paint sample cards for us to choose the trim and door colors, based on what he had seen of our wall colors. Michael's trained eye immediately picked up on the one color that would serve both purposes, as we had two different colors on various walls. During the process of painting the trim in the family room, we discussed repainting a wall that had faded from the sun (the original paint would no longer match). Michael's knowledge of color again helped us to determine just the right contrasting color that worked with the other wall and the new trim color. I was impressed by his careful workmanship and his concern for our property, always setting down tarps and taping areas as required. To make what has turned into a long story short, we would hire Michael again in an instant for any painting work in the future. He deservedly gets the 5 star rating!" 

 ~ Ed B.   Windsor, CA

"Michael's great eye for color, his attention to detail and his professional attitude are just a few of the traits that make him the one to call when you need painting and home improvements." 

 ~ Charlotte P.  Novato, CA


"When a young girls youth has outgrown her lavender bedroom walls, and desires a "soothing tropical beach" bedroom transformation with a "jungle flare", it's time to call Michael Burdette. Our new bedroom consists of a beautiful medium tan on two of the walls while accented with a rich, but matted olive green on the other two. These two colors together also lend themselves perfectly for a sophisticated animal print/jungle themed decorated room as well. WE LOVE IT! Michael was meticulous about his work, very knowledgeable in color consulting and finished on time! The room looks amazing!!"
