North Oakland Painters

To preserve the best aesthetics and warm atmosphere in your home, several different types of care are required. The most common of these services is painting. The surfaces of a house are visible to all, and they contribute to its coziness. As paints and finishes erode, dry up, peel, and fade over time, surfaces start to lose their luster.

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.
