Quality, Honesty, Excellence

Pro Painting & Remodeling, LLC started up in 2010 as the brainchild of Renato Alvarez. Renato had a vision and matched it with his determination to succeed. New Year’s Eve 2009, Renato sat with family and decided he had nothing else to lose, so he opened his own company. In true entrepreneur spirit, he started PP & R January 1, 2010, began doing estimates on projects in February and completed their first project in March of 2010. With that spirit, after his first year Pro Painting & Remodeling became a leader in the painting industry that would begin their legacy. Pro Painting & Remodeling now offers full home remodeling and produces an expanding team of designers and contractors.

Design Team

Renato Alvarez CEO

Renato started Pro Painting & Remodeling with his experience painting alongside his step-father and brother. He never really enjoyed painting but found it easy to do. He thought to himself, how can he make something with his painting talents without actually painting? With PP & R Renato can now do that. He enjoys creating projects and driving sales for the company. With 20 years of experience in the industry, Renato gives PP & R the professionalism and service deserved to its customers. Renato enjoys spending time with his wife, two sons, and daughter. Renato ultimately loves to watch the company grow. He loves to work with people and create their dream homes. When asked about goals he has for the company, Renato responded with, “I want to create a household name; someone people can trust. In reality, we are already living that dream, we just want to continue doing that.”

Milkos enjoys spending time with his wife and two sons.
