About Southern Painting

Southern Painting is one of the longest-tenured professional painting companies in the nation. We got our start in Texas in 1989 when founder, Mark Collins, saw a need for a full-service company providing expert interior and exterior painting services, using high-quality materials, and meticulous workmanship.  Today, we’ve grown to include more than 20 offices throughout the Southern United States, all while using our time-tested formula for success, and demonstrating a tireless dedication to customer satisfaction.

Our motto is “Lots of Satisfied Customers!” because making each and every one of our customers happy is important to us.  We want you to enjoy every step of your painting project – from the excitement of choosing the ideal colors to the moment you see the finished results and say, “Wow!” Contact us today to learn more.

Mark Collins, Southern Painting Founder

Hi! I’m Mark Collins, the Founder of the Southern Painting Family. Welcome to our website!

I graduated from the University of Texas at Arlington in 1980 and entered the real estate and building business.  My wife, Vicki, and I are the proud parents of two daughters and several grandchildren, and we have lived in the Austin area for over 20 years.

I founded Southern Painting in 1989, in Plano, Texas, after seeing the need for a professional painting company in the area.  I wanted to provide homeowners with a full-service interior and exterior painting experience, using upper-tier materials and workmanship at a fair price.  Using our time-tested systems approach, Southern Painting has grown to include over 20 offices throughout the United States.

Total customer satisfaction has always been Southern Painting’s primary objective, hence our motto “Lots of Satisfied Customers!”

My goal — and that of everyone in the Southern Painting Family — is that you have such a pleasant painting experience with us that you will be proud to brag about it, and us, to your friends and neighbors.

So, give us the opportunity to discuss your painting needs and we look forward to working with you in the near future.

Sincerely,
Mark

What Homeowners Are Saying
5.0
Average Star Rating

We needed to have some exterior and interior painting done and were also on a tight schedule. Southern painting did a great job and worked with our schedule. The house looks amazing! The entire process was very easy and everyone was friendly and professional.

I would definitely hire Southern Painting again. Professional, trustworthy and conscientious.

Absolutely phenomenal company to work with. Did a fantastic job and was very reasonably priced. Would highly recommend them to others!

I can't believe the professional care we experienced with Southern Painting! The crew was very knowledgeable, experienced and took care of our older home like it was their own.
