Our History

The first time Bill Hunt wielded a brush and roller, he painted a 900-square-foot house for his neighbor, Marty Schwan. It was 1969, and Bill was a history major working his way through school at Portland State University. As he gathered more painting projects and discovered what he enjoyed most about his work were the people he got to meet. He chatted up World War II veterans who told him tales of battle, and forged new friendships as he got to know his clients.

Bill's business has been people-oriented from the start — he built a network of happy, trusting clients, one job at a time, growing from a one-man operation with a single paintbrush and roller to a full-fledged contracting company. He's perfected his craft so thoroughly that he's moved on to bigger and better spaces, expanding Hunt Painting from handling only residential properties to working primarily on high-profile commercial projects. And though these projects are much larger in scale, the focus remains on the client experience and the highest quality paint job.

In 2001, Bill's son Stephen joined Hunt Painting, first as an employee and then as a partner. Stephen is now the driving force behind Hunt, with Bill's breadth of experience to guide him. After over four decades in business, Hunt Painting continues to be a people-oriented, family-owned company dedicated to truly superior painting. They work with the same clients repeatedly because of their consistently high-quality work and dedication to client relationships. Bill and Stephen have the long-standing trust of many clients, but one, in particular, stands out: the man who hired Bill for his first paint job, Marty Schwan, is still a loyal client to this day.
