Two El Gato Painting & Restoration technicians paint a client’s house.

El Gato Painting & Restoration, Inc. provides a complete range of interior and exterior painting services for residential and commercial clients throughout the South Bay and East Bay. In addition to painting all types of surfaces, the company has the in-house capabilities to perform drywall and cosmetic dry rot repairs, stucco patching, deck staining, and more.

Owner Ken Slosarik says El Gato Painting & Restoration’s meticulous approach to preparation has been an important aspect of its long-term success. “We’re one of the few painting companies that use a chemical stripper, which removes more peeling paint per hour than any other method. Also, since we offer a six-year unlimited warranty, we’re very thorough when it comes to making sure every job is done properly.”

El Gato Painting & Restoration’s technicians stay up-to-date on the latest products and techniques in the painting industry, and they attend weekly training and safety meetings to ensure they’re maintaining high levels of quality in their work. “Our clients often tell us that our employees are the most knowledgeable people they’ve ever met when it comes to painting,” says Mr. Slosarik. “They know which products, materials and applications are necessary to achieve the best results.”

Company Philosophy

“We want every client to have a positive experience, so we always do what we say we’re going to do and make sure they’re happy with each aspect of our work. We’re prompt and honest, and we cover all our bases to ensure high-quality, long-lasting paint jobs.”
