Our Standards

In the course of nearly two decades, we have become the top-of-mind “go-to” painters in Madison, Wisconsin for people who believe their projects are “worth doing right.” And we intend to maintain that reputation—and your trust—the same way we achieved both:

  • Knowledge—knowing and using the best painting practices, techniques, standards
  • Materials—using premium paints and products
  • Expertise—employing well-compensated, experienced, and motivated career painters
  • Service—making the process as easy as possible for you, from the initial estimate to the final walk-through
  • Honesty—treating you as we would want to be treated if our roles were reversed
  • Accreditation—working to PDCA standards
  • Fully Insured—you bear no liability in the unlikely event one of our employees is injured on your property

The PDCA is a 3000-member nonprofit professional organization that develops and maintains industry standards for craftsmanship and working standards in the painting & decorating industry.

All Genesis employees are trained to these 40 standards with hands-on training that is updated and reinforced through weekly meetings. As well, Genesis employees are regularly availed of training & educational opportunities from vendors, government agencies, and other qualified second parties.

What Our Clients Say

We first hired Genesis Painting several years ago, when we needed the exterior trim of our home painted. Friends recommended Genesis highly, and we were very pleased with our painter's skill and attention to detail.

This year, we again requested the expertise of Genesis Painting to refinish interior woodwork, and do some interior painting. Again, we were delighted with the competency and courtesy. We also hired Genesis to do all of the painting at our new apartment.

We will be happy to furnish references upon request. Based upon our experiences, Genesis is the best!
