2019 Best of the Boat painting company: Lawton Painting

Lawton Painting continues to occupy the top rung of the ladder in the Best Painting Company category, winning the honors for the last four years running.

Starting with partner John “Pink” Floyd in 1997 and continuing on his own in 2000, founder Kyle Lawton has eclipsed 20 years wielding spray guns, rollers and brushes in Steamboat, with a tight-knit crew year-round.

The company specializes in exterior/interior re-painting, as well as home maintenance, remodels and small new construction.

“I love taking a project that needs some love and turning it into something that looks great,” he says. “The key is just being honest and doing a great job.”
