Residential Painting in Boulder
Interior and Exterior
From one wall to a whole house, no job is too small or too big. We are experts in applying all types of finishes including green paints, no voc paints (non-toxic paints), which are our favorite paints to use. Not only are they good for the environment and our customers, but they are a new form of water bourne paints that, in most cases, perform even better than latex paints. We also specialize in oil-based enamel paints, urethanes, lacquers, all kinds of staining and oil finishes, epoxies, deck and oil stains, and cement floors. We also offer faux finishes and venetian plaster – we’ve been doing it all for 35 years, including repairs in drywall, texture, exterior rotten wood in siding and trim. We bring in trusted carpenters when the repairs are beyond our scale.

In 35 years of painting in Boulder and Denver, we’ve done it all. From 5 story exteriors using 80′ booms to painting one office, to painting hundreds of offices in banks, aerospace facilities, warehouses, hotels, apartment buildings, malls, factories, pharmaceutical plants, clean rooms, bridges and stadiums. The harder the job, the more we enjoy the challenge.

Free Color Consultation
We feel color consultation is very important and offer it free of charge as part of our regular service. Spending time on color consultation at the beginning of the job helps prevent the common problem of customers suddenly hating the color at the end of the job, preventing them from having to pay for another coat of paint. Usually people pick colors from a little swatch, not realizing how different it will look on a larger surface in changing light. We like to put up lots of 2’x2′ color samples on the wall or exterior siding of the surface to be painted, using at least 3 choices for each color you are interested in, one a little lighter, one a little darker, applying as many as 10 to 15 colors in order to find the perfect one for your project. We like to let you live with those colors for a couple of days so you can see what they look like over time in different lights. We also enjoy working with interior designers and colorists. My wife, Kerry Lee MacLean, a famous artist, author and illustrator of 10 children’s books, including Pigs Over Boulder and Peaceful Piggy Meditation, will come in on difficult color combinations.
