A J & D Painting technician paints the exterior of a customer’s home.

J & D Painting provides various interior and exterior painting services for residential and commercial clients throughout the East Bay. The company works on projects ranging from single rooms to multi-unit apartment complexes, and its large staff of painters allows it to send bigger crews to finish jobs quickly and on schedule.

Owner Harold Jagoda has been working in the painting industry for more than 35 years, and he says his wealth of experience has made him distinctly aware of details most painters overlook. “The most important part of any paint job is preparing the underlying surface beforehand. If it’s not done right, even the best quality paint won’t prevent future problems.”

J & D Painting is EPA Certified to conduct lead-based paint renovations, repairs and painting. It’s also a member of the Painting and Decorating Contractors of America.
