Pat and Mike, the "Brothers" in Chism Brothers Painting, are fourth generation master painters with a long history of professional experience. As young boys, they were taught the fine points of superior craftsmanship serving as apprentices under their father's watchful eye. They learned more than the skills of painting, their father taught them the lessons of good character and the rewards of a job done well.

Now in the business for more than thirty years, they've demonstrated through their words and deeds what it means to blend character and craftsmanship. Mike personally comes to each project to insure its success and hires only those employees who live by the same ethical standards.

When we are painting your home, we take extra special care of your property. The paint is only applied to the proper surfaces and not to the floors, furnishings or pets. You will not hear loud music playing, lots of talking, or see a messy jobsite.


Many commercial painters bring a Let's just get this done attitude to the job site. They may cover your surfaces quickly, but do they stand by their work? At Chism Brothers Painting, we have always taken a great deal of pride in the character and craftsmanship that serve as the foundation of our standard practices.
