Our Crew

The Heart of PMV

Our painters hail from all areas of Southwest Michigan and all different backgrounds. They may have different hobbies and zip codes, but the one thing they all share is a passion for excellence in painting.  We feel confident that you will enjoy getting to know them and appreciate their professional demeanor while at your project.  Some of our most frequent feedback from our customers is about how great it was having our crews in their home.  That's why our unofficial motto is "Painting with Pride..."
