CEO John Phipps leaning up against a wallForty years ago John Phipps started Quality Painting and Wallcovering with the idea that not all painting contractors should be compared to each other. Rather, that a company can truly excel beyond the status quo and set a level of expectation that stands alone. Since then, Quality Painting and Wallcovering, Inc. has become San Diego’s leading commercial painting and wallcovering company.

Phipps startup company grew by word of mouth, and our business is still built on satisfied customers who value Quality’s promise to deliver the best value, on time, as promised. The vision has always been to set a new standard for quality and service in the industry.

Our company is best known in the high-rise tenant improvement market, but we have extensive experience in build-to-suit, restaurant painting, historical property renovation and the acoustic fabric wrapped panel markets.

Customers have come to rely on Quality Painting and Wallcovering’s integrity and extensive product knowledge. It’s the difference that helps our clients receive the best possible results at the greatest value. We partner with our clients, bringing our expertise to each job and not only valuing our clients’ input, but taking our responsibility as their painting and wallcovering contractor seriously – from the budget to the schedule to the end result.
