Learn More About Our Process

Where does the Partnership Painting Process come from? After working in residential and commercial painting since 1984, we KNOW what works. We learned how to paint from Scott’s father who painted houses each summer when he wasn’t teaching High School Industrial Arts. He taught us not only how to paint but the value of painting a house, a room, a school, or a church, for example, as if they were our own. Basically,“the Golden Rule” of painting!

First Contact

An interesting fact, 75% of Partnership’s business is either referral or repeat business. We hope that brings you some peace of mind if you decide to work with us.

Many new clients find us when searching online and decide to call the office. On that call, we try to get as much information as possible and always ask these three questions:

  1. How can we help you?
  2. What are your specific needs?
  3. What is your ideal timeframe for the work to be done?

We want to make sure we are the right company for the work and that we can get started or complete the work on your timeline. We always attempt to balance getting the job done, on schedule while doing beautiful work.

Set the Appointment

We have moved back to setting in-person appointments. We like meeting our customers to establish a professional relationship. Monica/Crystal or someone in our office will email you confirming the date and time of the meeting, and if requested, send a digital copy of our brochure that lists previous customer referrals in your zip code. We also send links to show that we are:

  • Licensed and Bonded
  • Have Liability Insurance
  • Have workers comp coverage
  • EPA Certified (trained in dealing with the process of lead-based paint containment)


Someone from the team (Brad, Scott, or Jason) will come to you for a no-cost consultation. Before Partnership Painting even looks at the work to be done, we would like to speak with you about the job. We want to understand the job scope fully and client needs, which helps us determine how we can better serve you.

Questions and topics typically discussed at the consultation

  • What past work have you completed on the home?
  • What is the painting history (of the home or building?)
  • If residential, what are your long-term plans for the home?

Partnership Painting will always take the time to discuss the project. No matter what your job entails, it is likely that we have seen it before and are prepared to offer feedback and experienced opinions on most jobs. We are more than painters; we are also available to help with items like wood rot and replacing boards, which can save you extra costs of having to hire a carpenter.

At Partnership, we try to bring education or understating of your scope of work. Even though two projects are never the same… after 38 years, we have encountered a lot of challenges and have been able to provide multiple options to remedy almost any situation. We post a lot of before and after examples on our Instagram.

The Proposal

We promise to get you a proposal as soon as possible, typically we can have a direct and customized proposal in front of a new client within two business days.

If necessary we sometimes meet again to hand-deliver the quote and break down the job in terms of time and price. We are happy to answer any questions you may have after receiving the proposal.

You will find that we offer "no-nonsense" pricing, which means we can explain exactly where your money is going. We can walk you through the timeline, the number of crew, the amount of paint/stain, and any additional needed materials or equipment. There will be no surprises or hidden costs. We are transparent with our clients about project scope and pricing.

Both Brad and Scott have been operating a small business that has existed to serve families, nonprofits, and businesses in Southern California. That same service will be extended to you.

5-Star Reviews for
Partnership Painting

Partnership Painting company has been a godsend to me. I have a very nice heavy hardwood double doors that a previous painter some 4 years ago had messed up. They used to be stained and varnished. The previous painters used actual paint mixed with varnish and ruined the look of my doors, which had recently started to bubble up and peel. Partnership Painting was the only company that was willing to strip the paint, re-stain and varnish my hardwood doors. It was a very messy job and took almost four days to get the job done. But it was so worth it because my doors look stunning now, with the beautiful grain of the wood exposed by the stain and varnish. The team leader Rene who worked on my project was terrific. And his partner Edgar was good too, a very fast and hard worker. There was only one mishap on my project when Edgar failed to install one of the door seals properly and ended up gouging the door sill. It showed the lack of experience on Edgar's part and I hope he learned from the mishap. My one recommendation to Rene, the team lead, would be for him to assign tasks to his co-worker only after explaining to him how the work should be performed and what to watch out for. I would highly recommend Partnership Painting. They are pretty pricey, but you get what you pay for, and with Partnership Painting you get the best of the best.

I have never worked with a painting company that delivered what they said they would until I hired Partnership Painting. Top notch painters hands done! Attention to detail - clean lines and no drip marks anywhere! Unbelievable job with impeccable service. Left no mess and did an outstanding job! Will definitely be using this company for future paint jobs.
-Mike W.

Very happy with the service we received on the exterior of our home. The employees showed up on time, were professional and worked through the day taking minimal breaks. We also appreciated the job taking a couple extra days, because We felt they were promoting quality work vs. being in a rush to finish! We highly recommend Partnership Painting and would definitely use them in the future!
