Jon Ray – Founder
PaintGreen was founded by Jon Ray, who has been painting since 1996. Jon ran a student painting franchise while going to business school at Seattle Pacific University. During this time, he learned that providing quality work and operating in an environment of integrity earned him referrals, was a great way to grow a business, and matched his personal values.
After a few years in Phoenix, AZ, Jon came to San Diego and realized there was an opportunity for an environmentally-friendly painting company. He founded PaintGreen in 2006.
In an industry where unethical behavior is far too common, Jon built PaintGreen in what he likes to call “an environment of integrity.” Customers receive high-quality painting for a fair price. Painters receive fair compensation and respect on the job. Suppliers get honest dealings.

We paint around your schedule, taking into account things like pets, children’s nap time, and more. We are careful around flowers and plants, and protect your floors and furniture with drop cloths wherever we are painting.
