Primary schools, high schools and universities take an inordinate amount of beating with students, staff and supplies constantly moving in and about the buildings. Since the interior painting of a school is functional and not decorative, choices tend to be more neutral, but certain schools and classrooms might have specific color requirements, which we're more than happy to discuss.

Older schools and universities might have slightly more complex architecture, as well as high ceilings, duct work and gymnasiums, which will require care and precision in cleaning, preparing and painting the interiors.


School and university exterior paint colors are typically neutral so as to fit nicely in the surrounding environment. In both exteriors and interiors, paint jobs are typically carried out in the summer months, weekends, holidays and school nights when traffic through the school is at an absolute minimum.

Many school and university administrators in the Milwaukee, Lake Geneva and Waukesha areas have turned to Lakeside Painting for their expertise in the field. We also work in the tri-state area covering Illinois, Iowa and Southwestern Wisconsin.
