We Are Painting And Wallpaper Specialists

Finding the right paint or wallpaper specialist for your project can be a frustrating process. Which company will complete work on time or leave things neat for you while it’s in progress? If everything looks great when it’s done, how can you be sure that it will hold up over time? Over the years we have served thousands of clients in the greater Richmond area, taking note of the challenges, requests, and desires along the way.

There is essentially no situation or request that we haven’t tackled before. More importantly, there isn’t a situation or request that we haven’t solved and perfected. We believe that is what makes H.J. Holtz & Son different from all other painting, papering, and decorative finishes companies. Because we’ve developed and continually refined our practices, literally over generations, we get the job right the first time – even the tough ones.

A cost-effective solution

We train, retain and employ our staff (they’re not contractors) so we have confidence in both the efficiency and the quality of their work. Getting the job done right the first time keeps our costs down (as does the fact that we get most of our clients via referral).

Great communication

Project supervisors ensure that everyone on the team is in sync with the plan and any requests you have.
