Owners Steve Melander and Joe Perry

A Locally-owned, Independent Business

Varsity Painters started in 1995 as the vision of two friends, Steve Melander and Joe Perry. Both originally from the Twin Cities, they have been in the painting business since 1987.

Homes painted by Varsity have been featured in the Parade of Homes, the Luxury Home Tour and the Luxury Remodeling Tour, several of which were award-winners within those tours.

Unlike other companies that sub-contract most of their work, all of Varsity's painters are employed by Varsity. We have full-time, trained professionals who are flexible to work with your needs to get a custom project finished. There is a job foreman on site at all times and questions regarding your project will be returned promptly.

Owners Joe and Steve or our supervisor Curt will be in touch with you throughout your project, from initial estimate to site clean-up. We are proud of our reputation for outstanding customer service and will do everything we can to ensure your satisfaction with your new paint job.

Our Promise

Varsity Painters has a no-gimmick pricing policy, offering our best prices all the time. We will help you determine precisely what your project needs are, from color selection, multiple-coat requirements to type of paint.

Community Impact

We understand that being part of a great community includes doing our part and giving back. In 2004, Varsity Painters donated labor and paint to restore the Lake Harriet Bandshell in South Minneapolis. We are proud to have been a part of this monumental restoration project!
