Your Local Portland Painters
Looking for Portland House Painters? Absolute Painting & Power Washing started in Hillsboro, Oregon in November 1995 just painting small apartments. I had just finished my degree at Portland State University in Finance Law. My focus was always on quality work and getting projects done on time, every time! We quickly gained trust from our customers and got many referrals for other work. Soon, I hired my very first employee who happened to be my Mom who had been a hairdresser for many years but was looking for a change of pace. As a family-owned business, we treat all our employees and customers like family or as we would like to be treated.
Within a couple of years, we realized we could not keep up with the demand and we needed to hire more help. Twenty-five years later, we now have about 20 employees and our focus is more based on working with homeowners directly. We have a full-time Color Expert on our team who specializes in meeting with clients in person and helping them dial in the perfect paint colors. We also have a Construction Manager that can help with repairs and construction projects. Many of our painters have been with us for 10-15 years now and they work hard to make every customer happy.
