Historical Overview

S&W Painting and Decorating was established in 1981 with three employees Jim and Mary Scott and Michael Moore. The first five years offered small jobs including fire stations, church and school additions as well as residential repaints. In 1986 S&W Painting and Decorating took the business to the next level and became incorporated. The company focused their work to schools and detention facilities and as a result the company tripled in size during the following five years. From 1996 to 2001 S&W Painting and Decorating, Inc. added Health Care Facilities and Government Contracts to their services and continued steady growth. During this period they landed two high profile jobs: The Denver Central Library and Park Meadows Mall. These jobs helped to propel S&W Painting and Decorating as a major contractor in the Denver area and gaining them a reputation for turning over high quality work on time.

In 2002 Michael Moore purchased S&W Painting and Decorating from Jim & Mary Scott. Since then S&W has seen a large increase in growth that has nearly tripled the size of the company with contracts ranging from $10,000 to $1 million dollars and can be bonded up to $2 million dollars.

The future of S&W Painting looks bright. Michael Moore states that “in the future S&W Painting and Decorating Inc. would like to expand our business opportunities with other General Contractors in the Denver Metro Area, increase more of the market share, and continue to have steady growth. Our Company’s greatest asset is our employee’s and we are proud to say we have numerous employees that have been with us over 10 years.
