Since 2003, I’ve been the proud founder of Exterior Painters – the most reputable painting company in our community for the past 20 years! I began my entrepreneurial journey at the young age of 16, cutting grass, and gradually worked my way up to securing a contract with the city of Madison Heights, before starting to paint for my parents’ company in 1999.
With my passion, dedication, and sheer hard work, I launched Exterior Painters in 2003 and built an incredible team of talented individuals who shared my vision of providing top-quality services to our customers. And, let me tell you, despite the many great painters out there, my team and I stand out as true experts in exterior painting!
We specialize in wood replacement and believe that practice makes perfect. Our secret to success lies in our commitment to delivering exceptional results, which has earned us a loyal customer base and kept most of our crew leaders with us since 2003.
Over the years, my team and I have accomplished incredible work, and we continue to thrive in the painting industry. As we celebrate our 20th year in business, I am filled with gratitude for all the customers and colleagues who have supported me along the way!

Jason Marks is a lifelong Metro Detroit resident who began his career in painting as an apprentice in 2006. He has honed his skills by working on various commercial buildings, including banks, hospitals, medical buildings, as well as residential homes, condos, and apartment complexes. However, the 2008 financial crisis caused his painting career to halt, and he worked as a delivery driver to provide for his family.
Years later, Jason had the chance to re-enter the painting industry, this time on the management side. He takes pride in helping customers transform their homes or businesses into something new and fresh. He sought a company that values its customers and sets high expectations for its paint crews on job sites.
