As one of the premier painting companies in the Greater Philadelphia Area, we offer professional interior painting services to all of our clients. Whether your goal is to freshen up your living space with a new coat of paint or prepare your home for the real estate market, interior painting is a great way to transform your home into a more unique and visually appealing space. In addition to our house painting services, we can provide a free color consultation with our partners at Sherwin-Williams to help determine the perfect colors for our painters to use on the inside of your home or business.

Pressure Washing

Pressure washing is a necessary precursor to painting the exterior of any building. While customers might not always associate pressure washing with painting, it is a crucial step before any coat is applied to the outside of a building, allowing the paint to adhere to the surface of the structure properly. Pressure washing alone can also improve the appearance of the exterior and remove contaminants like mold, mildew, and algae.

At Matthew Rathgeb Painting, we provide our clients with a full range of painting services, ensuring that we handle your project from start to finish. Our contractors offer multiple options for residential and commercial properties, including both interior and exterior painting as well as pressure washing.

Dr. O’Connell - Philadelphia, PA

Everything went GREAT from start to finish! We have a small pediatric medical office and wanted to do some renovations. We contacted Matt to do the interior painting and wall repair. He came right out and did an estimate. He is very personable and friendly and clearly knows his trade. We have children in our office and Matt was very sensitive to this and pointed out that he would use only the safest products and use nothing that would leave an odor. This was very important to us. Instead of refinishing our front desk with an oil based varnish that would leave an odor he suggested a paint on chalkboard! I had never heard of this and think it is very nice in a children’s office. His estimate was reasonable. He came on time and did wonderful work. Could not be happier!!

Jake S - Center City Philadelphia

We cannot say enough good things about Matt and his professional crew. We had the 2nd floor of our townhouse painted and needless to say, we are very pleased with their work. They were prompt, neat, courteous, friendly, and very conscientious with an obvious focus and attention to detail. They performed the job in less time than expected, for the exact price he quoted and included more than the average amount of spackling and sanding. Thanks again, Matt, for a job well done. We look forward to you & your crew painting our first floor, too.

Dr. James - Glenside, PA

First, I would like to say that Matt was incredibly professional and responsive. The crew was the same. Very good people and cared about the quality of their work. Matt did a great job of fitting in the job even though I know he was very busy. As the job progressed, I needed additional things completed and he was fast to get back to me with pricing and how it might change the completion timing. I will use him again when I am ready to do the few other rooms in the house.

Maria G. – Fort Washington, PA

A very professional contractor. Paid attention to details. Excellent craftsmanship. Nice finish work. Good clean-up. Competitive pricing. Great Quality. Personable. Punctual. Overall, a hassle-free, pleasant experience.

E. Paist - Newtown, PA

I have had nearly every room in my house painted by MRP. The painters were always on time, were courteous and responsive to my requests, and were very professional. The quality of work was outstanding and the job was completed on schedule. I wholeheartedly and without reservation recommend Matthew Rathgeb Painting…you will not be dissappointed.
