Observing painting tradesmen and contractors is something that I've done for over 30 years in Oak Park and River Forest. And if you are truly knowledgable about painters and craftsmen. You would understand that a compliment like that is a big, big thing. This area boasts some of the world's great architects and home builders.
And having painted houses with many oldtimer painters over the years. I now find myself one of those oldtimer painters.....Recalling names like...Doyle, Muccianni, Taglia, Armour and WestWork's Ken Javor. I've painted houses with some of the finest painting contractors in this country. Just by working for and with some of these guys. And Ken Javor was one of the easiest and more talented contractors to work for. But I learned awesome things from all of them. Oak Park and surrounding communities are fortunate that Ken Javor is still in this business. With the possible exception of John Amberg of Experienced Painters......WestWork did some of the finest work interior and exterior that I saw anyone do. My vote is five *****
