Our People

SKIS Painting began as a small family company in Kent, WA. We are now over one-hundred thirty employees and growing, with projects from Seattle to Everett to Tacoma and beyond. We strive to be the best in the industry while making every employee from the field to the office feel like family.

Philosophy

There’s a reason SKIS Painting has been in business for more than 50 years, and why so many of our clients have been with us since the beginning. Our philosophy is pretty simple (it’s in the name): Service, Knowledge, Integrity, and Satisfaction. We strive to embody these ideals every day. They are the four cornerstones of our award-winning business and represent our uncompromising standards.

Service

Whether you have a business to run, a building to rent, or a property to maintain, you need a painting company that understands your needs and is ready to work around your schedule; one that can respond quickly when the unexpected occurs. At SKIS Painting, working off-hours and weekends isn’t a problem. We’re here to serve you.

Knowledge

SKIS Painting is recognized as a leader within the painting trade, and has for years shared our expertise through state and local chapters of the Painting and Decorating Contractors of America. We take pride in the knowledge and experience of our staff. We work closely with our vendors to stay abreast of the latest advances in equipment and materials, which allows SKIS Painting to provide competitive pricing while using the highest performance painting products available.

Integrity

At SKIS Painting we believe operating with true integrity is pretty simple: Do what you say you’re going to do when you say you’re going to do it. Don’t cut corners or compromise quality. If there’s a problem, fix it. Give back to the community.

Satisfaction

Satisfaction is the net result of living out our principals. At SKIS Painting we’re intentional about executing our philosophy, which over the decades has lead to thousands of happy satisfied clients. We value our satisfied clients, but the greater reward is building lasting, long-term relationships with our clients and knowing that they have confidence that SKIS Painting will do the job right—the first time.

More Than Paint

The SKIS difference starts and ends with our people and our commitment to growth and education. From our office team to the field staff on the jobsite,  we’re committed to hiring and cultivating employees who personify our core values, and helping everyone on the team reach their highest potential.
