Oakland Painters

Paint is essential. Paint is elemental.

With so much emphasis placed on residential house painting, commercial painting often goes overlooked. While Arana Craftsman Painters has helped breath new life into homes at the residential/private level, we also work regularly with business entities and persons. When working with landlords, property management companies, commercial building owners, and the like, we utilize the same high value approach found in our residential work. A commercial building, be it an office, apartment building, or retail space deserves the same attention to detail and the same care our residential project receive.

A clean impressive coat of paint says a lot about a business, can establish a tone for customers, and make businesses of all types easily identifiable. Moreover, commercial structures endure the same types of wear and tear that residences do and so they must occasionally be repainted in order to remain looking attractive to customers and hold onto their professional airs. Arana Craftsman Painters is committed to excellence in restoring old surfaces and protecting commercial structures through alluring paint.

Interior painting

Beauty And Protection

Very few think of it and even fewer talk about it but paint functions as much more than a cosmetic element on a commercial building. Paint is your building’s first line of defense against weather, warping, rot, mold, splintering, and even pests. As paint on commercial buildings ages over years and decades it eventually begins to not only lose it’s vibrancy but can peel and crack away which exposes the frame of your building to all of the aforementioned problems. At Arana we apply the very best qualities of paint to your building so that it remains protected for years at a time.

Testimonials

Our clients say

Laura Martin Bovard, Interior Designer, LMB Interiors

It’s hard not to stand on a rooftop and sing the praises of Catherine Baldi, principal of Arana Craftsman Painters. She’s sincere, authentic, professional, and kind. Their work is exquisite and clean. She and her staff always answer the phone, they fix anything on a job that ever goes wrong -- the need for which is rare because they are so good at what they do. She treats her employees like family; she brings people under her wing and grooms them and they stay with the company long-term. Over the years we have referred dozens of projects, interior and exterior paint and wallpaper jobs, and we look forward to referring dozens more.

Ernesto and Catherine are running a top-rate painting business in the East Bay - quality painting, great customer service and attention to detail. They did a beautiful job on our home and I recommend them highly.

Serina Johnson

Thank you for the absolutely terrific job from start to finish. We couldn’t be happier with the transformation you guys performed on the old – peeling paint. Everyone was friendly, professional & qualified, just like your references all said.

Michael Knott

My experience with the Arana team was amazing. From beginning to end the process was easy and smooth and the results were great. I handed them the keys to my house, left for 10 days and came home to a beautiful “new” home. Would definitely recommend, especially for an old (20’s era) Craftsman home that needed a fair amount of repairs and prep.

Dawn Thomas

Arana did a great job painting the outside of our house. They provided a competitive estimate, and provided a great team. Not only was the work done well, but they were also respectful and nice.

FAQs

Frequently Questions

"Arana Craftsman Painters has been proudly serving the San Francisco Bay area for over 15 years because not only do our past customers continue to come back but also refer us to their friends and neighbors."

"We are very selective in hiring our painters and administer a criminal background check for every painter. Most of our painters, especially our crew leaders, have been with us for years. We trust them in the homes of our own friends and relatives."

Following EPA Safe Lead Certified procedures we completely remove all failed loose and flaking material from surfaces and substrates. Often, this is done by manually scraping followed by pressure washing. It's standard for surfaces to be abraded, thoroughly sanded, profiled, and primed to guarantee adhesion. That’s why we take our time where it counts – especially in the preparation.

"We offer a 5 year guarantee on all projects, the strongest guarantee in the Bay Area! So, if you notice an issue – small or large – please call our office. We strive to create “customers for life” and do annual warranty check ins. The bottom line is that you can call us any time after your project has been completed!"

"We use only the premium lines with Sherwin William and Benjamin Moore because we have a strong relationship with both brands and they produce superior products. This means if there is ever a manufacturing defect, we know that these companies will stand behind our work – and your project. However, we do make exceptions when there are superior products in specific situations or if our customers have a strong product preference."

"Absolutely! We make certain we protect our customers by carrying the appropriate insurance coverage for general liability and workers' compensation. Additionally, we are licensed by all local authorities and continually seek out industry-recognized certifications and designations to add to our customer’s peace of mind."

"Yes! References right in your neighborhood are included with all proposals! Feel free to ask for more!"

"We will send it no later than 5 business days after our meeting."

"We only take payment per a payment schedule upon work completed. The schedule is detailed in our Proposal/Contract. We ask for a deposit of 10% or no greater than $1000 to hold your spot on our calendar."
