Professional Painting Services

Stephen James Painting, Inc. provides quality commercial and residential painting services on the Central Coast.

Quality first

Best Painters on the Central Coast

At Stephen James Painting, Inc. we know that there are dozens of other companies you could call for your business. We also know that in a small, tight-knit community like the Central Coast, word of mouth is all that matters. That is why customer satisfaction is always our #1 goal. In fact, over 75% of our jobs originate from either repeat customers or word of mouth referrals. That means something to us and it should mean something to you, our potential customer. It speaks of our quality of work and the degree of satisfaction that our customers receive. We always offer quality workmanship with professional experience from start to finish.

The average exterior painting job of a 2,500 sq. ft. building can be completed by our highly professional painting crew in roughly 5 to 7 days. To complete the same job yourself, it would very likely take weeks, not days to complete; not including the amount of time it would take to plan out the project, prep the surfaces, and any sort of cleaning. Hiring us allows you to sit back and relax while we take care of the hard work. Our crew is always courteous and delivers a clean, quiet, smoke-free working environment. We are fully insured and meet all of California’s state licensing requirements. Contact us today for professional painting services in Santa Maria, San Luis Obispo, Paso Robles, and everywhere in between.

Why Choose Us For Your Next Painting Project

Beginning with the first meeting you will learn that at Stephen James Painting, Inc., we take pride in the work we do. To begin with, we have an excellent preparation process. Without properly preparing a painting surface, any new paint is likely to simply bubble and chip or flake in a short amount of time, costing you countless dollars and an endless headache. Our preparation process stops this costly damage from happening. We offer full transparency and explanation of the painting process in a way that you, our customers will understand.

A building is so much more than walls to shelter you and a roof over your head. It’s your home and your place of business. This is where you choose to seek refuge and recharge. It’s where you laugh, cry, share a meal, and make memories. Let us help make it something special. Don’t trust it to just anyone. You wouldn’t trust the man at the deli store to rebuild your car engine right? Why would you trust anyone but a professional with the painting? We are a family-owned and operated business that has been painting for three generations. Our craft has been passed down from father to son, honed, and perfected to serve you, our customers. Stephen James Painting is the best painter in Grover Beach, CA and services the entire Central Coast from Orcutt to Paso Robles.

Furthermore, we warranty all of our interior and exterior residential paint projects for 5 years. The details and exclusions of this warranty will be provided at the time of the estimate. Wondering what the quality of our work looks like? We invite you to take a look for yourself. Better yet, have a chat with our previous customers and ask them how their experience was. We gladly provide local references so that you can see our work in person and hear from our customers first hand!

How To Make Your Paint Job Last Longer 

  • Keeping the exterior of your home free of debris or mildew buildup will go a long way in extending the life of your painting. Gently remove any build-up whenever spotted

  • The better the quality of paint the longer it will last. Begin with a high-quality product that you trust so that you enjoy it for the maximum time

  • While bright and bold colors might be appealing, earthy tones have proven to stay looking fresh for a longer amount of time. Take time to consider the length of time between fresh coats you desire when selecting a new paint color

Being a homeowner or property owner comes with a certain amount of pride, and rightfully so. It also comes with its fair share of upkeep. Painting is one of the most impactful and tedious chores of them all. We know that whether you’re a business owner grinding away to make your company stand out amongst the vast amount of competition or a homeowner, the appearance of your property matters. It’s the first impression that potential customers will make and the backdrop for countless loved ones’ memories. 

While the idea of strolling down the isles of your local hardware store and picking up a fresh gallon of paint seems like a manageable or even possibly romantic idea, the proper application of that paint is much easier said than done. At Stephen James Painting, Inc., we know about all of the challenges and struggles of completing a job well done. House painting in San Luis Obispo and surrounding areas is our specialty.

DIY Painting Tips From The Experts

  • Work from the top down. This will help with fatigue since the most difficult part of the paint job is often on top, it’s best to complete first before you get tired

  • If you find yourself in need of a break try to stop in a natural breaking area such as a corner or end of a row to prevent lines or unevenness

  • Try to avoid working in direct sunlight or extremely hot temperatures 

  • Wearing long sleeves and or gloves will help to prevent paint splattering on the skin and protect you from the sunlight

  • Always practice proper safety protocol 

  • Hire a friend or helper; more workers means fewer hours working

    Now, if just reading about this very long process and contemplating utilizing the tips offered leaves you feeling overwhelmed, you are not alone.

We will work with you to create the home and business look of your dreams.
