Learn More About Our Customer-Focused Company

Best Painting & Cedar Specialists has painted or stained hundreds of homes and businesses since 1967. It's something we take great pride in. We are also extremely proud of the fact that we ensure our clients are completely satisfied when their project is completed.


We keep our customers updated about the daily progress in work. Before final payment, we have a thorough walk-through inspection and a punch list is completed with the home or business owner present.


We hire only professional and experienced painters who have the same commitment to quality as we, the owners, do. We also make sure that an owner or experienced supervisor is on the job site every day to ensure the high-quality results.


Our company is always looking at new techniques and the latest products available by regularly completing painting industry courses, attending seminars, and meeting with paint industry representatives.


We're committed to doing our part in keeping the environment clean and will use green products when available - provided they are offered in the high quality that we are accustomed to.


We also have specialized crews that utilize the strengths and expertise of each employee - one for commercial projects, one for residential projects, and one for cedar homes, businesses, and decks.

Our history

Best Painting & Cedar Specialists was established in 1967 by Marvin Dodge. The company is currently owned by his son Brian Dodge and business partner Steve St. Germain. Working on the job with his father, Brian learned the painting and business skills needed to run a successful company. In 1987, he took over the reins of the business when Marvin retired. In 1997, Steve joined the company and brought us his 17 years of job site supervision experience in the construction trades. Another son, Marty, also learned the business from his father and currently has a separate and successful painting and cedar restoration business in the Duluth and Superior area.
