Our Company

Exterior Solutions Plus was founded as a house painting company over 30 years ago. With a reputation for quality and value, Exterior Solutions Plus has grown into a successful and innovative renovation specialist. By respecting the uniqueness of each individual project we have been able to grow nationally while retaining a personal touch.

Expert Approach

We ensure our clients’ expectations are met and exceeded with our dedication to quality and ethical, performance-driven solutions; believing that every project should be executed with experienced project management.

Your renovation begins with a pre-construction meeting where together we will create a comprehensive Project Development Plan. The Project Development Plan details the scope of work and outlines processes from initial site review through project completion; including timelines, materials, equipment, storage, and resident notifications.

Before the completion of the project, Exterior Solutions Plus will conduct two thorough inspections of our own to ensure that all details of the project have been completed to satisfaction. We believe that this step is an essential element to achieving complete customer satisfaction.


Jim Gardner, Founder and President

Jim Gardner started painting houses over 30 years ago as a way to finance his college expenses, unaware that renovation would play a major role in his life for decades to come.

As Jim’s reputation for delivering quality and value painting grew, the business thrived. He expanded his services, switching from single family homes to the project management industry, with a focus on multifamily residential developments. Guided by his personal belief in absolute customer service, with an emphasis on budget and time, Jim built a performance-driven company that put client satisfaction first. Jim continually reinvents the restoration industry by installing his customer-focused approach to other aspects of exterior renovation. He hopes to put an end to corner-cutting, over run budgets, and failures to deliver on promised work.

With this firm foundation, Exterior Solutions Plus earned a solid reputation for delivering quality, value, and service on all renovation projects.
