Residential House Painting Services

Your home is not only your family’s biggest investment, it is the place where you will spend the majority of your time together. It’s the place where memories are created and where you spend time bonding over common experiences. Being that a home is so important it should come as no surprise that many homeowners go to great lengths in order to customize their home. Some will have new floors installed, some keep it simple by upgrading countertops, and others will have their home painted to give it a fresh new look and feel. Taken together, our services like on-the-spot custom color paint mixing are unmatched.

At Arana Craftsman Painters we help homeowners both breathe new life into their home and protect it with unparalleled painting. We service both the interior and exteriors of homes and can restore vibrancy and attractiveness that’s often missing in aged homes and those that have never received a fresh coat of paint. Our staff is made up of people who aren’t simply content in doing a job, they love what they do and it shows in the results. Our attention to detail is unparalleled and we approach each job as artists intent on delivering a home that’s warm, welcoming, and reflective of its owner.

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.

Maureen Kennedy, Realtor-Broker, Compass

I am an East Bay real estate agent but was looking for painters for my own new home. Catherine had been referred to me by a trusted loan broker in the area. I called her up to do some work at our old house before we sold it, and then asked her to give me a bid for our new home.

Her team did the work while I was away on vacation. I came back and everything was back in place and the work is exactly as I had hoped. No complications, no worries about security, no extra charges, and no delays.

A great job overall!

Christopher Nelson

Arana's team was fantastic, we loved working with them! They did a great job with the house and wrapped up on time. We'll be using them on our next painting project.

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.

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.


Frequently Asked 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."
