Creating a Different Kind of Home Painter in San Rafael

As a home painting company, we know how important it is to have a skilled and friendly team painting your home. Our founder, Steve, has spent his career building a team that respects our clients. We’re proud of the company we’ve built, and how our team serves our San Rafael clients with superb home painting services.

Whether you would like a new exterior look for your home, or if your kitchen needs an upgrade, we can create a cohesive color palette and provide the superb service you’re looking for.

Meet Our Founder

Steve Stiles has over 15 years of experience in the painting industry, and his focus on customer service has shaped how we work.

Steve began as an intern for a painting company while attending California State University in Sacramento. He continued to move up in the company, soon becoming their Vice President of all production and sales. Once he reached this point, though, he grew dissatisfied and their customer service.

“While I enjoyed the work, I wanted to build a company that truly served the customer. This led to opening MoonDance Painting with two colleagues, and I’m proud of how our team fulfills this vision.”

Soon after opening MoonDance Painting, he purchased the company from his colleagues and expanded its reach. Today, we serve the Greater Bay Area, including San Francisco, San Rafael, Sonoma, Alameda, and Solano.

Building an Experienced Home Painting Team

Our team has more than 100 combined years of experience in home painting. Since Steve began MoonDance Painting, we’ve completed over 2,000 projects throughout San Rafael and its surrounding areas.

This experience means that we have likely worked in your neighborhood, and know the needs of each area. For example, older homes with lead paint need very specific containment procedures to ensure that you and your family don’t get sick.

When you hire us, it’s important to us that you receive high quality service. Every member of our team has been carefully chosen and trained, and we are fully bonded and insured.

Hard skills are important, but soft skills are, too. We want a team that’s considerate of our clients’ homes and schedules; we know how disruptive home improvements can be. We’re proud of how our team operates, and we know you’ll be pleased as well.

“The crew, Alfonso and Christian, did a beautiful job.  They patched the stucco where it had cracked, fixed some dry rot in the eaves, and painted everything with great attention to detail…

“We were at home most of the time and my parents were visiting from the East Coast, so we had a full house, and Alfonso and Christian were really thoughtful about working around us, checking in when they had questions or needed to access the inside, and letting us and our dog get in and out of the house easily.” – Kate D.

Services We Provide as San Rafael Home Painters

We’re thrilled to bring our services to San Rafael and the surrounding areas, whether you need a new exterior paint color or are looking to refresh your home’s interior. We believe in working clean, which means we protect your space and clean up after each work day, regardless of where we’re working.

  • Home exterior
  • Home interior
  • Refinishing kitchen cabinets

Your home’s exterior is the first impression, so it needs to be creative, high quality, and something you’ll want to come home to. We can help you choose the right colors with digital renderings, fan decks of colors, and small samples applied to your wall.

While working together, we will account for current neighborhood color trends, HOA requirements, and your personal style.

“Moondance Painting did a great job on the exterior of our house! We chose Steve’s company because his bid seemed fair (neither the highest or lowest) and he was very responsive to my wife’s chemical sensitivities and was very detailed in spelling out what they would accomplish in the extensive prepping needed before painting…

“They were careful to ask us every time there was a question about how we wanted the colors placed (a total of 3) and were not even put out when we changed the trim color the last minute. The final result exceeded all our expectations!” – Richard M.

For your home’s interior, color can affect your everyday life. We’ll incorporate current furniture style, appliances, and your ideas into a cohesive and unique look. It’s amazing what a few coats of paint can do to transform a space!

All furniture, flooring, and valuables will be protected, and your walls prepped appropriately. By preparing well and choosing high quality paint, we can ensure your home’s new paint will remain fresh for many years. 

Your kitchen cabinets are used every day, so it’s important that they are refinished well. This means removing all previous stain or paint, and using only the best products to ensure a quality finished product.

Refinishing kitchen cabinets can be a labor intensive effort, but we believe that a job worth doing is one worth doing well. This means that you’ll receive high-quality finishes for both stained and painted your cabinets.

Why MoonDance Painting is a Different Type of Painting Company

We’ve found that painting your home well involves too many variables to offer online or phone estimates. Instead, we come to your home to see the project in person. This estimating process takes 60-90 minutes, during which we’ll discuss colors, our process, and any special considerations.

Choosing your paint colors is perhaps the most important step, but it can be a challenging one. This is why we’ve hired a Colorist. Her experience lies in taking your inspiration and special requirements and creating a cohesive color palette for your home.

For an additional fee, she will work to blend your aesthetic and practical needs to create a space that you and your family will love.

As the first certified green painting company in California, we’re dedicated to improving how we recycle materials and dispose of jobsite waste. We want to help our community while serving our clients.

As Steve describes, “It’s important to us that we’re respectful of our communities and natural resources. For this reason, we’ve invested in green operating practices at every job site.”

We’re proud of our team and how we’ve been able to serve San Rafael homeowners for their interior and exterior painting needs. We believe that customer service should be a priority, which is why we prioritize hiring skilled and friendly painters. By hiring the right home painter in San Rafael, you can create a space that reflects your personality.
