Who is Barton Custom Painting?

My name is Josh Barton, the owner/operator of Barton Custom Painting.  I have been involved in the painting industry for over 10 years, and have owned my own business since 2004. My goal as a business owner has never been to be the biggest painting company, but simply to be the very best at what I do.  I believe that for the past 8 years that I have been successful because of my focus on 3 essential elements of
business: quality, service, and value.

  1. Quality: By offering clients the highest grade paint products from the most reputable manufacturers in San Diego, and applying them in the correct way without cutting corners, I can ensure that the paint job will last as long as possible.  I am only as good as the quality of the paint I buy and the equipment I use.  By producing a high quality finished product, I can know that my clients will gladly call me again for future painting needs and glowingly refer me to their friends, family, and neighbors.
  2. Service: I believe that service is what separates my painting company from the rest.  Being in my clients’ homes is a personal thing and it requires personalized service from job to job.  To accomplish this, I am on the job site every day to lead each job and meet all the project’s needs.  From helping with one-on-one color selection to maintaining a safe, clean job-site for you and your family, I believe that going the extra mile in service is as equally important as craftsmanship.
  3. Value:  The word “value” has a difficult time being defined and understood.  Having hired specialty contractors to work in my own home, I have learned that the lowest price rarely equals the best value. I can promise you that when you are running late for work and are waiting around for a contractor to show up when they said they would be there, then come home to see a disastrous job-site, along with unsatisfactory craftsmanship, you are not thinking about the few hundred bucks you saved by using a less expensive company.  At that moment you would have paid a little extra money, just to have the assurance that you will receive value for your dollar.  When it comes down to it, we all just want a product that meets our expectations, and when we receive the quality and service we seek, we are willing to pay fair market price in return.


I believe Barton Custom Painting will deliver the value you are looking for.

These are concepts that drive not only my business, but my personal life as well.  I encourage all my prospective clients to read the testimonials on my website and check my references I attach with each quote to help them in their search for quality, service, and value in their painting project.
