Proficient Painting did a super job painting the house. Their quality is excellent, and the price is really reasonable. They are very organized and clean, and pay attention to details.
Paul did a great job on my downstairs bathroom. Very timely, did great prep, knowledgable, thorough cleanup, polite, and helpful. I plan to use him again in the near future.

About Me

paul wilder, owner

I was born and raised in Los Altos, Ca - my family built homes and businesses in the area, and my father owned the hardware store (where I worked for years). While working in the store, I always found myself drawn to the paint department, and when my father eventually sold his business I went to work for Sherwin-Williams, where I became a store manager. I later moved on to a career in industrial spray-painting, and spent 17 years specializing in the coating of computer parts. 

I started painting homes for friends as a side business, and found that I was so passionate about the work that I wanted to become a painting contractor. I have been in business as a residential painter since 2000.
