An artist at heart, Joe Pangburn started home painting with his father at age 12, and for more than 40 years he has continued to bring vibrant color to Southeast Wisconsin. In 1979 Joe and his father began Lakeside Painting, and in the last three decades the company has served Wisconsin residents by completing more than 10,000 individual jobs. Now with Joe’s wife and brother-in-law very active in the company, the family legacy continues.

Residential Painting Division

At Lakeside Painting, we know what our values are, and we live by them. Standing out from other painting companies, we are dedicated to making each of our projects an excellent experience for our customers, our employees, and our community. Here are just a few of our priorities which make Lakeside an outstanding painting contractor in Southeast Wisconsin:

  • Safety: Lakeside’s first concern is always for the safety of our clients, their families, and their homes. We perform regular safety checks, thoroughly protect home features while painting, and use low-odor products whenever they are appropriate.
  • Quality: Lakeside painter contractors take the time to prepare every surface properly and thoroughly to prevent premature paint failure. We use only top-quality, time-proven products and correct techniques. The result is beauty that endures.
  • Productivity: We work hard to complete every project on time and within budget. Lakeside’s goal is to maximize efficiency without sacrificing quality, and we communicate proactively to coordinate our project’s timing with your schedule and needs.
  • Attentive Service: At Lakeside, we value the art of listening. We make understanding your desires and expectations a priority and strive to meet them in every way.
  • Accountability: Before and after each job, a crew member will work with you to carefully inspect the condition of your home and property to make sure that we have not damaged anything and that our work is completely to your satisfaction. Should anything go wrong after we leave, you can always contact us; we back our work with an excellent warranty on materials and labor.

Safety and Environment

At Lakeside Painting, safety is our first consideration, and we are proud of our record for safety as a residential and commercial paint contractor. We were recently honored to receive the Platinum Award from the Associated Builders & Contractors Association for zero recordable accidents during the year.

Part of Lakeside’s commitment to Southeastern Wisconsin is our dedication to the planet. We apply Green Painting principles to our daily practice, using non-VOC and low-VOC products where appropriate, and recycling all of our environmentally unfriendly materials.
