And readers of this Report can get $300 off their interior or exterior paint job by saying they saw it here.


Johnny George learned professional painting right after high school, taught by his painter uncle from Greece. That old-world craft training and 30 years of experience means Johnny George can do things other painters can't, like tint his own paints on site and continue working, rather than delay by running to the store to put in an tinting order and waiting for them to fill it, and how to use traditional oil-based paints in addition to latex.  Johnny explains, "Both oil-based and latex-based paints are semi-gloss. Oil-based is more durable so the paint job will last longer while latex will hold its sheen better.  Unlike some newer painters who only know latex, we can use both, based on what the customer wants." 

In additional to traditional paints, Johnny George Painting & Decorating is also offers to clients the latest in painting products like paints that are low-VOC and no-VOC (Volatile Organic Compounds), for paint jobs that are both environmentally and health-friendly.

So Johnny George is experienced but what about pricing? "We're very competitively priced," explains Johnny. "If there's a quote from another painting company that's a lot lower, then look out. They're probably watering down the paint or skipping prep work on the surfaces. That means the paint job won't last and the customer will have to pay more to redo it.  With quotes like that that are too low, the homeowners doesn't know until after the paint crew is at their home and I've even seen situations where they get kicked out of the customer's house."

Painter Johnny George is local, having lived in the Concord CA area for over 30 years. He's a hard worker who doesn't get away from the job much, but when he does, he enjoys going to local car races, car shows of classic and custom autos, and owns a sweet 1967 Corvette he bought years ago. He's engaged to get married next year and his fiancé describes him as a stand-up guy with a big heart and she has told his parents they did a great job raising him.

Since 1979, Johnny George Painting and Decorating has become successful with the support and many repeat and faithful customers. They describe Johnny George as someone with integrity who follows through on his promises. They describe his crew as clean, polite, and clean. Johnny shares, "All our crew are trained to be considerate and clean up all their stuff daily, because people want to enjoy their home at the end of each day."

Johnny George explains that his employees have been with him for a minimum of nine years, meaning they are experienced painters and not simply laborers like at many other painting companies. They are quiet, steady craftsmen who respect your property and privacy and Johnny says staff know each job must be done to his high standards, as he oversees every single job, unlike other painters that just leave their crew and only come at the very end of a job to pick up a check.

A lot of our business is from referrals," he says, "and it's very rewarding for me each time we get a call from someone new who says they were given my name by a previous customer who said we did a great job."    With over 30 years in business, an owner who oversees every job, and polite, clean craftsmen painters rather than laborers, Johnny George Painting & Decorating in Concord CA comes highly recommended by residential and commercial property owners, contractors and interior designers.
