Why Choose LN Painting Inc?

We are proven professionals

We are first and foremost painters, however, we also provide related services such as drywall repair, power washing and color consulting. Additionally, our painters are hired for their motivation, integrity and skills. As a result, this level of professionalism earns us a high degree of repeat business, referrals, and a solid reputation for quality work around the San Francisco Bay Area.

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 promptly because that's how we run our business.

We're big on customer communications

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

We're all about the prep

At our eco-friendly residential and commercial painting company, 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 will 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 strive to be an environmentally-friendly company.

We make sure you stay happy

Your satisfaction is are guarantee, so if you notice anything missed or any imperfections, call us and we'll fix it. Unlike many other painting companies that charge a per-hour fee to return after you've paid, LN Painting Inc stands behind its work with a five-year warranty.

Interior Painting: Our 5-Step Process*

1Set Up

Furniture and items are placed in the center of the room and covered with clean plastic sheeting. All floors are protected with drop cloths.

2Prep Work

Upon request, holes and cracks in ceilings and walls are filled; stains are sealed, and surfaces are sanded. Repaired areas are primed.


Premium quality paint is applied with brush, roller or spray. Ceilings and wall areas are masked to ensure clean cut-lines between trim and walls.


Furniture and items are moved back to their desired locations. Floors and carpets are vacuumed and swept. All of our materials are removed.


After our own inspection, you can inspect our work to ensure it meets your standards.

Exterior Painting: Our 5-Step Process*


We either power wash or hand wash all pre-painted areas in order to remove dust, dirt and mildew. Drop cloths are used to protect all work areas.

2Prep Work

We scrape away all peeling paint; fill in holes with exterior putty; caulk cracks and gaps; sand all edges. We prime all areas of bare wood and those needing repair.


We apply premium quality paint with a brush, roller and/or spray.


Cleanup is done daily, as well as at completion of the job. Touch-up paint is labeled and provided to the client.

I was so impressed, these guys are pros. I showed them what needed to be done and didn't need to micromanage to get things done "right". They handled prep, patching, interior/exterior, cracks, paint removal from prior painters, etc. They are not the cheapest bid, but they may have saved me money because they didn't try to overdo things and were very efficient. This team really knows what they are doing.

Larry and his team did an excellent job painting the interior of my house! Larry came promptly when we agreed for him to take a look at the house and gave me a very reasonable quote to paint four interior rooms in my newly-purchased home and provide all labor, paint, materials, etc. The finished product looks fantastic, and the job was completed in two days (done on schedule so that all work was completed before I moved my furniture in). The team was professional, efficient, and courteous, and they cleaned up after themselves thoroughly when the work was complete. I'd highly recommend Larry and would not hesitate to hire him again for future work.
