About Hester Painting & Decorating

Hester Painting & Decorating has been providing homes and select commercial establishments with high-end painting and decorating services since 1968. Family patriarch, Tom Hester, founded the company, wanting to be known as the “best painting contractor around.” Now, over five decades and three generations later, Hester Painting & Decorating remains dedicated to Tom’s goal. Since 2013 we have been voted Best Painter by the readers of Better Magazine, and Best of Houzz for Customer Service for numerous years.

As a Facilities Manager I work with dozens of vendors on a weekly basis. I have never had a problem with Hester, which speaks a lot to their professionalism.
