About Herb Rimmel Fine Painting Company

Coming from a background of three generations of European master painters, Herb knows what it takes to do the job right. Born in Switzerland and moving to America with his family in 1960, Herb had an ideal upbringing to groom him for his future trade. His father was a painter who learned the craft back when it required a college education and years of apprenticeship before one became a journeyman painter.


At an early age Herb realized that painting was a way of life well suited to him. After many years of training with his father in all the “old school” ways he moved from Chicago to Portland with his young family, worked for several years as a painter learning more modern procedures and, inevitably, in 1995 started a painting business of his own.


Small Professional Painter Crew — high quality work

Today Herb still works with the same time tested methods and has passed them along to his small crew of journeyman painters. Keeping the crew small allows for careful oversight of all the work and a peace of mind that the job will be done the way it should, expertly and professionally.


Another benefit of a small crew is that the client can feel secure in knowing just who will be on their job and what to expect from them. All of Herbs’ employees are trustworthy, polite, clean, and very good communicators. They are also all professional journeyman painters. We don’t hire “helpers” to do our painting.


Our skills run the gamut from basic brush and roll work to technical spray techniques and specialty finishes. Take a look at our offerings in the Services Section on our home page. Whatever job we decide to undertake there is one constant: the job will be done the right way…professionally and with a careful eye for detail.


There are a great many painters out there. Some very good ones and a lot that are not so good.
