Paint Platoon USA is a professional full-service interior and exterior house painting contractor. We got our start back in 1984 when we began painting residential single family homes in the North Shore of Chicago during summers while in college. We decided immediately that our goal would be to focus on high quality work, excellent service and using only high quality exterior and interior paints and coatings, even if this meant that our price would be higher than "Hank and his brother in law" or other freelance or "station wagon bandit" types. We knew that people would be willing to pay a little bit more for quality and service. We tended not to land the work when low price was the most important concern. But we are ok with that.
Since we originally serviced an upscale area, we knew our customers wouldn't settle for anything less than a high quality paint job. The customers who we worked for needed painting services in the suburbs of Evanston, Wilmette, Winnetka, Kenilworth, Glencoe, Highland Park and Glenview. We were originally known by the name Semper Fidelis Painting Co. since the two original owners were both Marines.
We later changed our name to Paint Platoon USA, trademarked it and moved more in the direction of commercial painting & industrial painting. Several years later, we moved to Cary, IL. and now we provide paint contracting services throughout most of the entire Chicago area. We never quite stopped doing residential painting though because this was how we learned about providing great quality and service.
We’ve earned a reputation as a premier house painting contractor with an extensive range of capabilities, qualified home re-painting experience, specialized interior and exterior training and painting equipment, and professional crews of highly experienced house painters.
