OUR PRESIDENT AND HISTORY
Founded in 1996 by Patrick Barnes, a third generation painter. Pat learned the painting profession from his Grandfather and uncle who were both successful painting contractors. Pat began his painting career as an apprentice in October 1978, working for a large commercial painting contractor. In 1979 he went to work for his grandfather, Jim Gothrup in Oakland, CA.
Pat spent several years learning proper painting techniques from his Grand father and uncle.
Many times Pat was told that they were painting a client’s house for the 3 rd or 4 th time (over 20-30 years).
This made a strong impression on the importance of quality work and great customer service. Through the mid 1980’s to mid 1990’s , Pat worked with four other painting contractors ending up with a large residential and commercial firm as an estimator / project manager. In 1996, he started Barnes painting as a one man crew out of the back of his Nissan Pick-up truck.
Today Barnes Painting employs between 9-12 painters to fill all you painting needs.
