Description

Award winning. Merriam Park Painting, Inc. is grounded in the traditional values of honesty, hard work and quality service. We are determined to remain a small customer centered firm while constantly working as a team in becoming efficient and knowledgeable in our field. We strive to create an environment of clarity and openness where all can enjoy the gift of their work, and where our customers are pleased with our quality service Merriam Park Painting began in 1982. Ed Gross and Norm Gross, brothers both grew up on a farm in Southwest Iowa and learned many practical skills among which the skill of painting. Buildings, barns, the house all needed to be kept up and therefore, at an early age they were exposed to the painting process. When Ed was in High School his older brother began a painting business, and therefore, Ed was exposed to more of the painting trade. In the spring of the 1982 after graduating from the University of St. Thomas, Merriam Park Painting began and between five and ten homes were painted that summer. In the early years the company operated as a sole proprietorship and slowly grew. In the late 1980's the business was incorporated and began to increase its services into areas of interior painting, enameling, drywall installation, taping and mudding, plaster repairs, wallpaper hanging, woodwork staining, and varnishing, ceiling texturing as well as painting. In the early 90's Merriam Park Painting began completing some carpentry repairs. This was important because the painter’s were waiting for a carpenter to be found and hired by the homeowner, and it always seemed to delay projects and be inconvenient for the homeowner. Since we have carpenters on board with our company siding repair, rotted wood repair, window sills, installation of storm windows and doors have been a regular part of the painting business. We have also on numerous occasions replaced interior woodwork, installed crown molding, sized old doors to fit properly and other miscellaneous projects in conjunction with our interior painting work. The carpentry addition has proved to be a welcome addition for homeowners. They can hire Merriam Park Painting to complete their preparation and painting, as well as complete carpentry work and wood repair that is needed all in one process. Merriam Park Painting has always had the philosophy of hiring honest, skilled, and hard working people and then training them properly. Our perspective has always been to compensate people well, provide a good environment where people can enjoy the gift of their work and keep employees for the long term. We have been very successful, and it has made a tremendous impact on our business quality and the completeness of our work. We look forward to continuing our residential exterior painting in St. Paul and Minneapolis specializing in re-painting of older homes. We also look forward to continuing our residential interior painting and increasing our presence in the commercial interior painting market. Carpentry work, sheetrock, installation, plaster repair, and wallpaper hanging as well as staining and varnishing work will continue to be at the nucleus enhancing our painting expertise....

Fabulous! Excellent paint job -- thorough, precise and fast. The crew was on time, courteous, respectful of my needs, willing to answer any question -- and they cleaned up every single day they were here. No paint chips (from prep) or spills on any of my sidewalks or on my deck; no pools of paint-and-water from cleanup left anywhere that I could find; and no blaring radio or loud conversations. I ...
