Payment Policies

We believe that Genesis is simultaneously the largest and fastest growing painting contractor in the Madison area because we do everything we can to reinforce your comfort and confidence in choosing us. How?

No down payment
We do not require any form of payment until the job is complete and we have earned your final approval. This is in stark contrast to most Madison painters, who require as much as 50 percent in advance before they set foot in your home or residence. We think it outrageous that in an industry where the 3-year failure rate is 25 percent, that any painters in Madison, Wisconsin would expect you to absorb the risk of doing business with them. After all, will they be there tomorrow after taking your down payment today?

In business since 1992
Genesis has been serving the Madison are for nearly two decades and has a proven record of thousands of satisfied customers—along with their friends, family, and business associates. We have an A rating on Angie’s List, and numerous independent surveys that attest to our honesty, quality materials, and superior workmanship.

3-year warranty
Because we use only the best paints and materials as applied by our Career Painters, we guarantee all labor and materials for 3 years, where 1-year “limited warranties” are typical in the industry, including painters in Madison, Wisconsin. If unexpected problems occur (as they sometimes can with older homes and multiple coats of paint) we will be there for you at no charge—guaranteed.

Fully insured
You incur no risk in the unlikely event that one of our employees is injured on your property, unlike with smaller painting “jobbers” and “handymen” who might be underinsured and thus seek to sue you for injuries sustained while on your premises. In fact, our superlative safety record has earned us state recognition, as well as discounted insurance rates.

What Our Clients Say

Hello - I wanted to send you a brief note about how pleased we were with the work completed. We had a small powder room that required a lot of extra processes because of the wallpaper that was on the walls.

Your crew took the time to explain the processes involved, how much time it would take, and what we could expect. His communication was excellent, always calling when he said he would and alerting us to any changes. He was very courteous about our time and home. If not for the paint on the walls, we would not have been aware someone was working in our home because of how neat he was with clean-up. One day when it was pouring rain, he even brought in some packages that the UPS man had delivered. This demonstrates and employee who truly cares about his customers.

We called Genesis because of the great work they did in our home in 2005 on our master bathroom. We were very pleased to receive the same if not better service from your company on this job. People like Eduardo make your business. Thanks again for the great work and service. We will continue to refer our friends and family to Genesis Painting.
