Scam company with multiple names and lawsuits

Original review Mar 14, 2023

Company has no insurance, no workmans comp, has subcontracted laborers doing the work (migrants) and goes under multiple names: Ellis Painting, Barthel and Sons, John Ellis Painting, etc. The owner owes over $200,000 in NY for work violations and failure to abide by industry standards.

Google "PR 15-245, John Ellis A/K/A John C. Ellis Sr. (T/A J Ellis & Sons)"

All positive reviews are from owner friends. Take a picture of his drivers license, insurance papers, and workmans comp - you'll need those for court down the road after he destroys your home.

He's been sued at least 7 times in the past 5 years.

I'm not a painter, nor his rival. Just a dissatisfied home owner that regrets I didn't do my research to see who took my money and ran!!!

Garbage job

these guys r a joke stay clear. John is a sweet talking guy and a nice guy but actions speak louder than words. did interior work very sloppy and careless his color matching is weak at best and his laborers are day labor guys didnt speak english and had no clue of the detail work that was involved at the job they came unprepared to work missing ladders no scrappers etc. things that were promised were not done. it really a bad experience. not professional bottom line it was a bunch of clowns in a circus pay a little more and get a qualified pro to done your job this guy is nothing but a headache

John Ellis painting Fresh Meadows N.Y. -very sloppy job

John was very nice until I found out he sub contracted the painting of the front of my house. He took the deposit and washed his hands of everything. The subs could hardly speak english and got more paint on the side walk and bushes than on the house. I had to watch over them like a hawk to make sure they didn't miss any spots( which they did). I would not recommed him to any body! Please ask if the contractor will be doing the work and will be on site! If not please don't use them
