What we do differently


We will not sub your home out to another contractor

Almost all of our clients ask:  “do you sub-out the painting?”

It’s common practice.  The contractor you hire to paint your home hires a cheaper contractor to paint your home.

When you hire ELEGANT PAINTING,  you hire only one company directly responsible for painting your home.  Our small team is directly hired, screened, insured, and trained by Elegant Painting®.


Employment screening

We are vigilant about the people we allow near our family.

  1. 3rd party background check on 100% of staff
  2. We know our team well – No temporary or seasonal helpers.
  3. Conduct policy – Our team is less like the average contractor, and more like our clients.
  4. Non-smoking staff


No contractor-grade paints

We know your goal is to paint less often. 

We only use professional and premium-grade products.  Our exterior products utilize cross-linking technology to increase adhesion.  Our interior wall and ceiling paints have zero or no
VOCs (depending on your preference ) to protect your family as well as our team from long-term exposure.

Multiple layers of insurance

17 years in business: zero job site injuries and zero damage to a client’s home 

In the unlikely event of an unforeseen accident, you and your home are fully covered.  We carry State-backed industrial insurance to protect our employees and general liability insurance to protect your home.

Fixed price guarantee

We guarantee, in writing, that your price will not increase once the project begins!

.  We avoid up-charges
.  No change orders.
.  Zero surprises!

If we discover that your project requires more work than expected, we consider that a problem with our estimation process.   You are paying us to handle your painting, including all hiccups and surprises.



Precision guarantee

We are the only painting company in NorthAmerica to guarantee precision in writing!

This guarantee includes the precision of our lines, and the general neatness of our team (drips, splatters, etc.).


Attendance guarantee

We guarantee, in writing, that once we begin your project, there will not a single business day when our team will simply not show up. Exclusions: Holidays, snow days, rainy days during the exterior season.  


We are not a volume contractor

We are not on a mission to paint hundreds of houses as fast as possible. We deliberately keep our company size small so we can maintain control over quality.


Glowing references

All estimates include references from Eastside cities.  Our list of references will include recent references as well as some dating back 16 years.

As a small local business, we rely entirely on our clients to recommend us to their friends and coworkers in need of painting services.
