CertaPro Painters of Berkeley is a full-service painting contractor that serves residential and commercial clients throughout Alameda County. In addition to handling every aspect of interior and exterior painting, the company provides cabinet refinishing, staining, power washing, acoustic ceiling removal, epoxy coatings and more.

Owner Soumil Amin is a lifelong Bay Area resident who studied Economics and Business at UC Davis before establishing CertaPro Painters of Berkeley. “Running a painting business is less about the actual commodity and more about finding the right people, making sure they’re empowered and building a positive culture where they enjoy coming to work,” he says. “Our employees care about this company, and their dedication shows in their excellent paint jobs.”

CertaPro Painters of Berkeley emphasizes the importance of customer education and communication throughout every step of the painting process, from estimating to project completion. “We cover all the bases,” says Mr. Amin. “Our clients may only have to paint their homes once every 10 to 15 years, so we make sure they have clear understandings of what they’re getting.”

Our ultimate goal is to treat our customers the way we would like to be treated. Every time we enter a new situation, we ask ourselves, ‘What would we need to make ourselves comfortable? What kind of outcome would we like?’ Our outlook puts things into perspective for both our employees and customers.”
