Your commercial painting jobs need the care and expertise of a trusted industry professional.  Our commercial painters take special care to protect your unpainted surfaces, prepare your painted surfaces for a beautiful and long-lasting finish, and complete the job on time and within budget.  Let our years of professional commercial prep and painting experience work for your next project.


Deck Staining & Sealing

Michigan weather can be brutal on your deck. From the piles of snow during the winter to the heavy rains we receive during the spring, you need to protect your deck. With every deck comes a two-year warranty. Our 3 Step restoration method includes mildew treatment and sanding. We also carry stand-up sanders for additional prep. Rotted boards may be replaced with our in-house carpentry service. We only use top-notch stains to seal your deck.

When it’s time to start your project, we will show up exactly when we say we will and finish on or ahead of time, guaranteed!

I recently purchased a new house that needed painting done from top to bottom within a short time frame. Jon came out quickly for an estimate and Nathan kept in contact with me with updates throughout the entire job. Excellent work and very professional customer care!


I've used Hillis Brothers for painting the interior of my home five different times. The work was as promised and professional. I appreciate that their teams are very tidy and go out of their way to ensure you are happy with their work. I would highly recommend this company for any painting needs.


The Hillis Brothers Team did an amazing job of painting our house. They were all extremely professional. From quoting, prep work, painting and clean up everything was done better than our expectations. I would highly recommend Hillis Brothers for any painting work you require.
