There Really is a difference in painting companies!
Each year, hundreds of customers trust College Craft to provide a wide variety of painting and maintenance services at their homes and commercial properties. This is because we provide unparalleled quality, service and value to every customer.
College Craft has been providing exceptional interior and exterior painting and home maintenance services to Chicagoland neighborhoods since 1960. We were founded in 1960 when college student O.T. Nelson pulled some friends together and painted their first home. A hand-lettered sign in the front yard read “Painting Done by College Craft Painters.” Terry’s business phone was his parents’ home phone and his office was the kitchen table.
In 1975, current owners Scott Mennie and Terry Anderson took control of the company. Through their leadership, College Craft has evolved into a year round, professional painting company. Though we don’t hire many students anymore, our mission remains the same: providing our residential and commercial customers with the very best quality, service, and value.
