University City House Painters

Chism Brothers Painting Company

Three Generations of Painters serving  University City, La Jolla Village and surrounding areas

As young boys, Mission Hills brothers Michael and Patrick Chism learned the skills of painting under the apprenticeship of their father Milton Chism, himself a San Diego house painter since the 1930s. While they finished their military service and started college, the brothers continued to hone their craft working for La Jolla contractor, Otto Welp. Upon the sudden death of Mr. Welp, they branched out on their own and in 1982 founded Chism Brothers Painting.

Chism Brothers Painting moved their office to Kearny Mesa in the mid 1990's and quickly began to do a fair amount of work on homes, inside and out in University City (92122). This was do to the close proximity of our office but also many of the homeowners in this area liked the quality of the work we performed. Many homeowners in this area are very educated and appreciate attention to detail.  

Since we began our own company in 1982, Chism Brothers Painting has strived to become the leading home painting company serving the residences, builders and small businesses of the San Diego community of University City by ensuring all with exceptional quality and dependable service. We have hundreds of happy and repeat customers not only in your area but in nearby towns such as La Jolla Village and La Jolla. Please feel free to ask us for references in your area of University City.
