Our Story

K&J Painting LLC was formed in 2012 by Kristie and Jay Trapp when the owners of Ruffalo Painting decided to retire after many successful years in the painting business.

Jay who was one of Ruffalo paintings key employees at the time, saw this as a onetime opportunity to fulfill Kristie's lifelong dream to own her own business. Together with Kristie's 15+ years of business and marketing experience and Jay's 25 years in the painting business, they seized upon this incredible opportunity to hire exceptional and talented employees from Ruffalo Painting to invest in and create  a top notch family owned painting company. Today this dream lives on and is better than ever!

We are a family owned Union paint contractor that prides itself on quality workmanship.
