Hester Painting & Decorating: Experts in Residential Painting

Hester Painting & Decorating have been the experts in residential painting in the Chicagoland area since 1968, including the Gold Coast, Winnetka, Kenilworth, Highland Park, and the rest of the North Shore. We specialize in painting new construction and existing homes, both interiors and exteriors.

Expanding to Commercial Painting Services

Adding the Commercial Painting Division over 25 years ago, Hester’s highly skilled professionals provide interior and exterior painting and wallcovering installations for tenant improvements, schools, healthcare facilities, warehouses and data centers, and all other commercial needs in the Chicago area.

Our Corporate Office in Skokie, IL

Hester Painting & Decorating’s corporate office is located in Skokie, IL. The building was built in 1961 and the finish on the exterior of the building dated back to 1982 when Tom Hester purchased the building. The color scheme dated back to the late 90s, and our team decided the building desperately needed an update.

Overcoming Challenges in Renovating Our Office

The main headache we dealt with in removing the old exterior which was eeefis over brick, was leaks in the old surface which caused a significant amount of rotten wood once they removed the eeefis. The rotten wood would have caused the windows to fall out if we didn’t catch it when we did.

Modernizing Our Office Exterior

To achieve a modern, clean look we used Hardy Board materials and added a bump out above the doors to add character and protection from the elements. We also added lighting to highlight the signage as well as new windows and door system.

Our Commitment to Quality and Service

We strive to continue the tradition of our founder, Tom Hester, in providing unparalleled customer service, the highest quality craftsmanship, individual and business integrity, and outstanding creativity to all of our clients looking for the very best in painting and faux finishing. Our brand new exterior now reflects this mission.
