Best of Boston

2007 Best Painter

Coelho Contracting

In slightly less than a decade in business, Emanuel Coelho’s firm has painted hundreds of houses around Boston. The secret of its success boils down to that magical combination rarely seen in contractors: top-quality workmanship—backed by a five-year, no-chip warranty—and a rate that leaves clients with a little extra cash for other home-improvement projects.
