Dean Knecht Painting, Inc. offers exterior and interior painting services to customers in San Mateo County and San Francisco. It specializes in faux finishes and sponging and ragging (painting techniques that use sponges and rags to add depth and texture).

Owner Dean Knecht is a sixth-generation painter—he grew up learning the trade from his father and grandfather, who taught him about old, classic techniques. Mr. Knecht says he combines extensive knowledge of the painting industry’s latest products and techniques with a longstanding family tradition of providing excellent service.

According to Mr. Knecht, Dean Knecht Painting is known for its meticulous preparation. “The finish is only as good as the preparation,” he explains. “For example, we strip-peel wood areas the traditional way—with a heat gun. This makes for a smooth finish and a longer lasting job.” 

Company Philosophy

“I’m continuing a family trade that’s been passed down over six generations, and I take that responsibility very seriously. I strive to give my customers a truly unique painting experience by merging my old-world technical expertise with my knowledge of new products and technologies.”
