Eco Paint History

Eco Paint HistoryCal Phillips has been painting and providing home improvement services since 1977, long before the inception for Eco Paint. While putting himself through college, this was a perfect part-time job, where he would do various painting and repairs in a home or office ranging from wood repairs and carpentry, to painting, plumbing, drywall, siding repairs and replacements. Starting a home improvement business early in life was just as rewarding as it is now, helping the local community take care of home repairs and improvements.

By 1980, it became apparent house painting was Cal's specialty. When Cal decided to do this, he made a commitment to himself and community that he wanted to be the best house painting company the industry has to offer. Cal lives and breathes Denver house painting today, spanning well over 35 years later serving Denver residents and business owners.

By 1993, as the originator of the term "Eco Paint", Cal had changed the company name from Cal's Home Improvement, a sole proprietorship, to Eco Paint Specialist's Inc. During that time, the acronym "Eco" was thought of a more economical sense, quickly becoming known as ecological as well. By 1999-2000 the first green earth-friendly paint was introduced, using lower V.O.C.s (Volatile Odor Content) within waterborne latex paint coatings. Cal has kept both meanings close to his company philosophy, while keeping the painting cost at its lowest for the consumer and remaining environmentally friendly.

Today, Eco Paint's Denver painters are some of Colorado's best painters that Denver and the state have to offer. Always putting the customer first quickly became the company’s philosophy, and developed into a company tagline that is still with them today: "Customer Satisfaction is Our Main Concern". Over the years, Eco Paint has completed thousands of residential painting jobs, along with commercial painting, treating each one as their very own. Part of the 100% Customer Satisfaction Guarantee means no money accepted until painting is finished, approved, and accepted, please call for greater details. Once painting is completed, workmanship warranty is in place, meaning you never have to pay for touch ups during that time.

When you hire Eco Paint, Inc. you can trust that the job will go just as smooth as that new fresh coat of paint that is being applied, protecting and improving for many years to come.
