Cleve Dayton has been painting for more than 40 years.

The Painting Pros has been providing high-quality residential and commercial painting services for thousands of South Bay customers for more than 40 years. The company also handles deck refinishing, light carpentry (trim installation and general repairs), and minor sheetrock repairs and texturing. Additionally, the company offers free, personalized, in-home, professional color consultations to customers who are unsure about choosing the correct paint colors for their homes or businesses.

Owner Cleve Dayton established The Painting Pros in 1978 and has preserved his “old school” methods of painting by teaching them to his younger painters, but he also makes sure to keep up-to-date with the trade’s latest technologies, tools and methods. “In fact, we were the first painting company to become a Certified Green Business in Santa Clara County,” he says. “We’re also a Lead-Safe Certified firm.”

The Painting Pros emphasizes expert, detailed craftsmanship and employs professional, full-time painters. Mr. Dayton says his company only uses premium quality materials that are selected for their appearance, durability and easy maintenance. “All our materials are applied in strict accordance with industry standards and manufacturers’ recommendations. In other words, we don’t cut any corners.” 

Company Philosophy

“In addition to providing professional, high-quality work for our customers, we want to make sure their painting experiences are smooth, pleasant, memorable and problem-free. We treat each client’s house as if it was our own, and that meticulous approach has allowed us to gain many customers for life.”
