What began as a local start up venture in 1991 with Ray Wolf’s love of painting and focus on craftsmanship, now has steadily grown into a full force corporation offering both residential and commercial painting and additional finishing services to the metro area. 

Though he lost his fight with cancer in 2009, the spirit of Ray is still firmly intact within the walls of his company Ray The Painter. Being run with love by Wolf’s wife following his death, the company employs a devoted team to ensure that Wolf’s values are kept alive. 

With 30 percent of the customer base being in Edmond and an outstanding reputation throughout the metro, Ray the Painter prides itself on leaving a lasting impression with their clients. It is a job well done that keeps customers coming back, explains Josh Jennings with the company’s business affairs department. 

“We get great feedback. People just love us. That’s why they keep coming back year after year,” Jennings says. Ray the Painter also offers deck or fence staining and cabinet finishes, as well as texture and faux techniques in the painting.

The extensive care that the company takes to ensure a proper painting job is a valuable component to the work. They utilize a thorough process of covering furniture, repairing nail holes, priming, sanding and cleaning any work surface. Additional prep services include removing wallpaper and popcorn ceilings prior to painting.

To begin the process, clients are encouraged to call the sales department to schedule a free estimate. One of Ray the Painter’s estimators will provide a clear and complete estimate for their project. Once a bid is accepted, the project is immediately on their list to be completed and work can begin, explains Jennings.

The painters have a standard full day’s work schedule and always leave their work area clean and ready for the next day. 

Picking Ray the Painter is a huge relief in what can be a challenging task of locating a trustworthy company to get the job done right, neatly and professionally with an emphasis on detail. 

“Finding a contractor is difficult and finding someone you can trust and allow into your home is even more difficult. We take pride in the fact that people allow us into their home.” Jennings says. 

Ray the Painter is fully insured, so customers can be confident in knowing that they have chosen the right company for their home or business painting needs. Their talent and dedication to the customer makes Ray The Painter a perfect match.
