About Us

Incorporated in 1996.


Before starting McAdam Painting, Dan McAdam, President had over 20 years of residential and commercial painting experience. After joining Painters District Council in the Mid-1970s, Dan started as an apprentice and worked his way from journeyman, foreman, supervisor, to estimator/project manager for local union painting contractors.

McAdam Painting started out as a small 5-man shop servicing smaller commercial projects within the downtown Boston area as the preferred painting contractor for 5-6 local general contractors.

Since our humble beginnings, McAdam Painting has expanded to 125 employees working throughout MA, NH, and RI for various general contractors, hospitals, schools, businesses, sports complexes, etc.

McAdam Painting provides all types of paint and wallcovering services, as well as specialty finishes, digital graphic installation, venetian plaster, electrostatic finishes, multi-color finishes, and epoxy/protective coatings.

McAdam Painting management is comprised of painting and wallcovering professionals with over 100 years combined experience. At McAdam Painting safety is our number one priority. We provide our services to contractors and businesses that expect the highest levels of quality and professionalism to achieve on-time project completion in a safe-working atmosphere.
