See What We Can Do For You


Residential Exteriors

Painting the exterior of your home is one of the single greatest things you can do to enhance both the beauty and the value of your home. Exterior paint can protect your home from the outside elements. In Tehama & Shasta Counties, we get a lot of sunshine and some intense heat. That takes a toll on your home's exterior paint. Combined with our short, but intense rain season here and you have a cocktail for making your home look older than it really is.

Extend The Life Of Your Home

Beyond making your home look "new" again, painting the exterior of your home also extends the life of the home. Rain, intense Sunshine, the occassional snow storm (it happens, not often, but it happens ;-), it all adds up to reduce the life of your home's exterior. When Rick & his crew paint your home, they start by removing the damaged portions of the exterior. They caulk & seal the home properly to ensure the fresh coat of paint is applied on an ideal surface. This all adds up to the home looking great and reducing the wear & tear, and thus the cost of ownership.


Residential Interiors

Our moods are affected by our environment. Colors have a psychological effect on us and so it is important that we really enjoy the space in which we live and spend most of our time. If you are unsatisfied with the current color of your kitchen, bathroom, bedroom or anywhere inside the home, then having Rick & his crew repaint the interior is a great idea.

Today's color palette is incredible and the almost any color can be purchased and applied to your home's interior. If you have seen a design on Instagram or Pinterest, RM Painting can reproduce it in your home. Ensure that you love where you live, call RM Painting (530) 737-7217and get a quote on an interior painting today.



Too often we see people that are unhappy with their cabinets and so they think they need to completely replace them. Cabinets are not cheap. Beyond purchasing them, the installation can be quite expensive. Especially if you have to replace the countertops too (hint: You have to). Instead, a much more cost efficient path is to simply repaint them.

Not only can you change the color of your cabinets for pennies on the dollar of getting new cabinets installed, but you can also change the fixtures (handles & hinges) and texture on the cabinets themselves. This can be done without touching the countertops at all. The end results are brand new looking cabinets for a fraction of the cost of new ones.


Metal Fencing

Just like Residential & Commercial exteriors, metal fencing can really take a beating in the Northern California weather. Flaking, rusting, scratches and more can add up to make a perfectly good metal fence look old & decripit. It doesn't have to be that way at all.

It's in the Prepping

After prepping the metal properly, a couple of fresh layers of paint will make the structurally sound fencing look brand new. If you have fencing that looks like it belongs outside a haunted house, call the crew at RM Painting & Design at (530) 737-7217 and get a quote to get your fencing re-painted today.


Epoxy Flooring

Epoxy floor coatings are a great way to beautify any interior concrete floor! The applied coatings are incredibly durable, chemical resistant, antislip, long-lasting, waterproof and also come in a variety of colors & possible textures.

We offer 2 types of epoxy floors:

  1. Chip Flake - The chip flake comes in a variety of colors and chip sizes
  2. Metallic finish - the metallics blend colors to give a 3d type appearance

Both are beautiful!


Commercial Projects

One of our favorite calls is when a business is just opening up or moving into a new space. The joy of branding (or rebranding) a commercial space for a business owner is awesome. We are small business owners ourselves, so we know the feeling of pride when working space has your logo and company colors represented properly. It screams professional when your business cards, brochures, website and walls all look the same.

If you are opening a business, moving into a new space or you simply want to impress your customers (and potential customers), then Contact Us for a no obligation Free Estimate today.
