Residential Painting Service in Lake Oswego

About Joseph Martin Painting

Family-owned and operated for more than 42 years, Joseph Martin Painting is a leading Lake Oswego-based painting contractor. We specialize in high-quality interior, exterior, and refinishing projects for residential and commercial customers. We deliver high-quality residential painting services here in Lake Oswego with long-term commitment and care.

Our years of experience has taught us that over 90% of a good paint job comes from preparation, which is why our motto is “we do it right the first time.” Our attention to detail has earned us an excellent reputation for delighting our customers time and again.


We start with meticulous surface preparation, including pressure washing, caulking, filling, sanding, scraping, priming, and finish with a durable topcoat, so your finish is picture-perfect and long-lasting. Less reputable contractors may cut corners, thus making your painting projects more expensive in the long run.

Most of our exterior painting projects from 10-12 years ago still look great. That is why with our services, you will likely get tired of the colors before you need to repaint!

Whenever we are on-site, we will treat your home as if it were our own. Our residential painting service in Lake Oswego will leave your place tidy at the end of each day and carefully drape surrounding areas to protect your belongings and landscaping. Our reliable team at Joseph Martin Painting has been together for more than 22 years and all of them are professionals. That is why you can trust them even with your most valuable asset.

The materials we use are specially designed to withstand the Pacific Northwest weather, and we recommend using environmentally friendly options as much as possible.

In the North West, it is important to have your exterior paintwork inspected every couple of years so that chipping or cracking paint, rot or water damage, and mold or mildew are taken care of right away before they become too expensive to repair.

Make sure that the painting contractor you hire is licensed. With the Oregon Construction Contractors Board, you can easily find relevant information about your contractor, including their license numbers and existing

The Oregon Construction Contractors Board has a Buyer Beware List that can help you avoid being ripped off. We recommend reviewing your preferred Oregon-based contractor before hiring them, so you can prevent being scammed by anyone who is claiming to be a licensed provider.


"I have always been lucky. Lucky in love (married 45 years to my lovely wife) and lucky in life. Last year I was very lucky. I was the “Paint My House” contest winner on the “Bob Miller” morning show on KPAM. The prize was to have my entire house painted by Joseph Martin Painting, with paint provided by the show’s sponsor, Miller Paint. Everyone knows Miller Paint is the best, made especially for our Oregon weather.  I was told Miller Paint chose Joseph Martin Painting with good reason, as he is one of their preferred contractors. When Joe came to my home to discuss the project, he shared his extensive knowledge about color selection and application. After we selected a color palette, Joe and his crew thoroughly power washed our home and he and his crew went to work caulking, made minor repairs and painted my entire house, including trim and out buildings. They took great care not to damage our walkways or shrubs. We were a lucky family to have Joseph Martin as our contractor and I would recommend him with the confidence that he would do a outstanding job on any project."

"I had been planning on painting my house for a long time and the task seemed daunting. I consulted with a color expert who did not really capture what I had envisioned for my home. I then began looking for a painting contractor and found Joe. I am so happy we were able to work together. He has a keen color sense, and was very attentive to the vision I had for my home. He helped me come up with a color plan that works beautifully. In drafting the plan, he factored in natural lighting/shadows/flow of color/and impact of color . The result is beautiful! Elegant, tasteful and with just the right amount of impact....exactly what I had envisioned. His crew were also excellent painters. They were very careful with all of my belongings and moved heavy furniture effortlessly, returning to their original positions when the room was completed. The paint job was impeccable. I would highly recommend Joe Martin as a painting contractor for any home needs you may have. You can trust the job will be completed expertly, efficiently and beautifully!"

"As a Lake Oswego property owner, I would highly recommend Joseph Martin Painting for any indoor or outdoor painting work. He had a good knowledge and talent when it comes to recommending color and accent combinations and is extremely easy to work with. He is always on time and returns calls promptly. His painting crew is fastidious and they pay attention to every detail of the job. They take care around any outside vegetation and move back, cover or tie back anything that has to be moved out of the way as they work. As a gardener, I appreciate this part of his service very much. They leave the work site very clean every day and show up when they say they will.

"I have used Joseph Martin Painting for the outside painting of all my rental properties and am extremely pleased with the outcome. He has also done inside work for me and I have always been happy with the jobs there as well. Joseph has always been quick to response to my requests for painting jobs that come up, sometimes, on the spur of the moment. He is very reliable and listens to what I think I want and then helps me get the results I know I want. I wish I had more painting jobs for Joseph because he is a very nice man to deal with. I hope this recommendation helps anyone who is looking for a reliable, friendly, helpful, competent and hard working painting company. Joseph Martin Painting is the one for that job!"

"We hired Joseph Martin and his team to update our home's interior and re-paint the entire exterior, and were delighted at every turn. Not only are they friendly and professional to deal with, but all work was completed on time and within budget. We also relied heavily on Joe's experience with color and are very happy with the end results. I would recommend Joseph Martin Painting without hesitation."
