The Color Theory Team


Color Theory Team Members are Great! Our painters are talented and care about what they do. Many of our team members are artists and have a great eye for color and craftsmanship.

They come from a variety of experience levels and ALL are trained by Craftsman Painters. That means that the results are consistent and professional looking every time. 

We keep our teams small but efficient.  You'll have the opportunity to know their names and get to know who is in your home.  They are polite and helpful. We understand the importance of the home being a safe place and so we strive to be trustworthy and kind.

Team members will also keep in contact with you as your project gets completed and make sure that they are completing areas of your home in a way that suits your family needs. Ask them a question and they'll help you find a solution.


Our Training Program

Every painter in Color Theory goes through our Craftsman Painter training certification process. This training course is designed to teach and train every person on our team in the way we paint houses, choose color and run a business. It produces results that are consistent and professional every project and prepares each team member to take on leadership roles in the future.

At each level of painter whether Apprentice, Journeyman or Craftsman, we focus on a positive experience and quality painting.

We love our team and so do our clients!

"Torlando responded quickly to my request for an estimate, which I thought was reasonable. He and his team did an exceptionally high quality paint job. From the quality of the paint they used to its careful application, it was clear that Torlando and his painters are highly skilled and really care about their work. I'm looking to use them again for a larger project at my home - can't recommend highly enough!"

Fellow professionals also have great things to say about us!
