Commit to an appreciative and respectful experience for our team members and clients.

John Speridakos, Owner

Cosmos Painting  is a second generation family business with a team of thoughtful and dedicated craftsmen.  It was started by Peter Speridakos after immigrating from Greece in the 70’s.  Peter’s hard work over many years is what brought him the best book of clients in the NorthShore.  

Peter and his son John now work diligently to get the right people on our team and help them provide the best experience when working on your home.

The clients we’ve worked with over many years know this, and we thank them for all their enthusiastic referrals.  To our new clients, we want to know you, and get a sense of your tastes, concerns and desires. We value a discerning and educated homeowner. In short, we want to communicate with you… and we want to listen.

This helps us to reach our #1 goal: your satisfaction.


Have no fear of perfection, you’ll never reach it

-Salvador Dali

Well…  We’re still reaching Salvador!

We’ve been reaching for higher goals in customer satisfaction year after year, and it shows in our work, our communication, and how we conduct ourselves in your environment.

 American Painting Contractor Magazine  has recognized this and listed us among the Nation’s best painting companies in their     “Who’s Who of Painting Contractors” list.    Along with   humbly accepting the title above, we’ve also won the  Best of Houzz.com Service award in 2015 and 2016 for best customer service.


We want to elevate the industry to a higher standard.  A major player in improving the industry is  the PDCA (Painting and Decorating Contractors of America). This is an elite, nation-wide, organization comprised of contractors who are dedicated to the highest standards, education, training, advocacy, and best practices to better serve their customers. Our involvement in this organization is what’s helped us grow and become a great place to work.

“Cosmos painting did an excellent job repainting our home! The price was fair and they did an excellent job sanding and preparing our shingles and trim for beautiful new paint!”

“Top quality painters. Quality people. Conscientious, diligent, industrious and dedicated to doing a first rate job. Heads and shoulders above others I have used in the past.”

“I can’t say enough good things about Cosmos Painting! We hired them to paint our entire house (external) and the results were superb.”

“We used Cosmos a few months ago to hand paint our new kitchen cabinets and we have been so impressed by the whole experience from start to finish.”
