The Painting Co

The Painting Co. is a division of The Building Co. and was formed in late 2015 to initially provide in-house painting services on The Building Co projects. We now also complete projects for private clients and other builders.

If you want a top-quality job with no questions asked, our painting team is your choice.

Those in the know realize that painting is the icing on the cake. Painting is the most critical finishing elements to any project and it sets off the work completed by others. With an eye for detail and much care taken, our clients can move forward and enjoy without irritation.

Our two lead painters are highly qualified decorators that bring a combined 40 Years of experience to your project.

Please feel free to contact us today.
