Why Choose LN Painting?

We are proven professionals

Our only business is painting and the services directly related, like drywall repair, power washing and color consulting. Our painters are hired for their motivation, integrity and skills. This professionalism has earned us a high degree of repeat business, referrals, and a solid reputation for quality work.

We answer the phone

When you call or email, we'll answer. And if the phone lines are tied up, we'll get back to you quickly. Period.

We're big on customer communications

We don't like surprises any more than you do. Communication is key. Before, during and after your painting project, our goal is to ensure your satisfaction. Prior to starting, we’ll thoroughly discuss the scope of the work, your expectations, and all contract details. Every step of the way, our professionals will keep you fully informed.

We're all about the prep

At LN Painting, we focus on extensive prep work that ensures the highest quality results. The difference between a failed paint job and a great one often comes down to the prep work. Cleaning, priming, sanding, sealing — it can comprise up to 75% of the job, but meticulous prep work ensures you'll have a beautiful paint job that is going to last.

We use eco-friendly paints

As an EPA Lead-Safe Certified Firm, we use only nontoxic, top-of-the-line, zero-VOC paint and stains that have proven both durable and safer for the environment.

We make sure you stay happy

Your satisfaction is always guaranteed, so if you notice anything that was missed or any imperfections, just call us to remedy it. Unlike many other painting companies that charge a per-hour fee to return after you've paid, LN Painting stands behind its work with a five-year warranty.
