Richmond Painting Company


River City Painters owner, Joshua Marble

Growing up, I was literally immersed in the painting industry. When I was a baby, my father — a veteran painter—re-appropriated a five-gallon paint bucket to bathe me. As I grew, I entertained myself by scraping old paint off windows and playing on my father’s construction sites. As a young adult, I learned the basics of paint and ladder safety. But it wasn’t until a hot and humid August day in 2004 that I embraced painting as a passion. As I painted my heart out in friendly competition with my younger brother, I realized that “this was something I could be good at.” Two years later, I earned the title of operations manager at my father’s company. In August of 2009, I struck out on my own to found River City Painters.

Today, I put my lifetime of knowledge to work with River City Painters’ interior and exterior painting services. We have technicians prolong the life of exterior paint jobs by power washing outdoor surfaces before painting begins. During color consultations, design specialists help customers choose a shade the customer will love for years, or reveal industry secrets such as the difference between buff, beige, cream, and khaki. As this business has grown, I have added cabinet refinishing and deck coating services to my menu of offerings. A two-year labor and material warranty backs all of River City Painters’ interior work and a three-year warranty for exterior work. Committed to my community, I support disadvantaged children and young adults through outreach programs.
