Exterior Painting & Services

Exterior Painting & Maintenance Services

No one knows more about exterior painting than College Craft. Since 1960, we have painted thousands of exterior projects from neighborhood bungalows to lake shore mansions. We have painted exteriors throughout Chicagoland including churches, office buildings and townhomes & condominiums. And we have probably painted for several of your neighbors.

We will come to your home to meet with you to go over what you would like to have painted. We will carefully inspect your home and then give you a very detailed, written proposal specifying the scope of work and giving you exact pricing for labor and materials. Old house or new, big or small – we will give you an outstanding paint job at a very fair price.

Our customers choose us again and again because we do outstanding work at very fair prices. Our customers know they can trust us to do the job right. They know we will arrive on time, treat their family and home with respect, do great work and then clean up when the job is done. And they know we will be around to stand behind work – just like we have been doing since 1960.

Here are some of our exterior services:
