Beautiful paint and coating finishes contribute significantly to the mood and energy of a school’s campus. For decades, McCahill Painting has helped educational facilities transform drab and worn interiors and exteriors into bright, modern learning spaces—spaces that warmly welcome and energize students and staff, support learning, and can be cleaned and maintained with ease.

In addition to expert paint application, we provide power washing, abrasive blasting, waterproofing, graffiti removal, and total restoration solutions to help schools maintain beautiful and highly functional learning environments inside and out.
