We Make You Look Good

Stella Painting Inc. is a family-owned and operated team of highly skilled painters who have been serving Northern California since 1998. We've grown over the years simply from referrals and word of mouth because of our commitment to 100% customer satisfaction. In every step of the process from fair and competitive bids, to clear and responsive communication, to a beautiful finished project every time, we go the extra-mile to make you happy. 

Over the past couple decades we've had the pleasure of serving countless families, corporations, property managers, homeowner’s associations, builders and every type of client, trying to raise the bar of excellence with every new project. We provide interior, exterior and commercial painting services, cabinet/woodwork refinishing, pressure-washing, waterproofing, industrial coatings, staining, restoration, drywall repair and much more. Although we provide many different services, in all of them we are committed to our standards of honest, professional and quality workmanship.

Our Customer Satisfaction Formula 

Although we deliver the professionalism of a corporate company and have a large commercial portfolio, residential house painting is at the heart of our business, we are so thankful for the thousands of families we've had the pleasure of working with. 

Our formula for staying price-competitive centers on keeping overhead low, having productive and efficient work crews and using time tested techniques and systems. It's the only way we can offer top quality work for fair and reasonable prices. 

Our strategy for staying alive as a company has been to try to outdo ourselves on every project and to overdeliver on our work and level of service. Having survived on repeat business and referrals, we've developed a reputation for being the codependent painters - we're not happy unless you are. 


I am a third-generation painter with a long family history in the painting trade. My grandfather, Joe R. Medrano (J.R. Medrano Painting) started his painting company in 1950 at 1318 Cole Street in San Francisco, my father; John Stella (John Stella Painting) operated his painting company through the late sixties and seventies in San Francisco. My brother, Andrew Stella has been in the painting business since 1985 and I’ve been painting since 1989. With about ten years painting experience, in 1998 I started Robert Stella Painting in San Mateo serving San Francisco and the Peninsula. In 2009 we expanded with a second location in Roseville, CA. Today we have shops in both locations serving the Bay Area, all of Northern and Central California. 


To provide an excellent product at a reasonable cost; to serve others, to treat people the way I want to be treated, fair.  


By the grace of an amazing God I have been clean & sober since 1991 and the Twelve Steps have been a fundamental part of my life. The same principals which I have applied to my life to stay sober one day at a time for over 29 years I apply to my business; honesty, an attitude of gratitude, self-sacrifice for others, humility, service and many more. Life is a blessing and I consider this business a blessing to myself, my family, my customers and all the team members who have been a part of it. Stella Painting Inc. would not exist if not for our team and our customers and for all I am grateful.
