We cater our interior painting and exterior painting services exclusively to residential customers.  By doing this we concern ourselves solely with the care, cleanliness, and attention to detail that is essential when working in your home. Focusing on homeowners also prevents our painting craftsmen from acquiring bad habits that can come with painting large, commercial projects where speed and quantity – not quality – are the standard practice. We guarantee your satisfaction with our interior painting, exterior painting, and all other provided services, and will do everything possible to ensure your expectations are exceeded.

There are dozens of painting companies operating in the greater Jacksonville area, and thousands of painters.  But why hire a painter when you can choose a craftsmen instead? The Painting Craftsmen believes that your home is your castle.  Choosing us to give your home a color makeover is like treating your home to a day at the spa, a pleasant experience with lasting and transformative results.

About the Owner

painters jacksonville flIn 2003, owner Chris Arnett got a summer job with an up-and-coming painting company that specialized in residential painting services serving the greater central Ohio region. After graduating from college, Chris stayed on with the company as a team leader and helped it grow into a highly rated and award winning business.  Those years of hands-on experience doing high quality residential painting work proved valuable experience for his success in his next step.

In 2010, Chris moved with his wife to west Michigan where she began a graduate school program, and he set out on his own applying his knowledge of painting and customer service to the residential market. Not only did Chris start a successful, award-winning business, but he also studied and became a fully licensed painting, decorating and alterations contractor, gained accreditation with the EPA to work safely on homes built prior to 1978, and gained hands-on knowledge and expertise working on the interior and exterior of ornate, historical homes in one of America’s largest historic districts.

In 2013, Chris decided it was time to bring his painting craftsmanship south and partnered with his longtime friend Josh Kennedy, the founder of First Coast Home Pros, to form The Painting Craftsmen.  Together, their goal is to provide homeowners in greater Jacksonville with unparalleled quality, craftsmanship and customer service.
