About Us

There is no substitute for quality.

Our name comes from the tradition of doing things in the style of the “old world” – where craftsmen put quality first and took the time to do their jobs right. Our antiquated philosophies are the backbone of our operation:

  • Respect you and your home by leaving it clean at the end of each day/project
  • Perform quality workmanship with integrity
  • Provide unmatched communication, so you know what to expect throughout the process

We follow processes for all projects as required by project and product specification. Our “by-the-book approach” is the foundation of our house painting company. When you choose Old World Painting, you’re investing in quality work that lasts the life of the paint—or when you’re ready for a new look.

Apostoli Painting in Profile

Treat every client as if they were the only client.

Some house and commercial painting companies focus on profits by completing as many projects as possible, but that’s not us. Old World Painting is a commercial and house painting company that prioritizes our clients’ complete satisfaction. We do this by devoting the time needed upfront to be sure we fully understand your needs and any special considerations, and then completing the work with precision and attention to detail.

Whether your project is a color change in a bedroom or a complex historic restoration, we’ll strive to make the entire experience as convenient and seamless as possible. From start to finish, we’ll work to deliver a final product that exceeds your expectations.

Our Team

Our team has experience in all aspects of painting, including residential, commercial, interior, exterior, and historical restorations. We take pride in our work as both a house and commercial painting company, and it shows.

Apostoli Matsikas  Owner

Painting is more than just a job for Apostoli – it’s his passion. A modern-day Renaissance man, Apostoli combined his love of architecture, 15+ years of professional experience within the construction and painting industries, and entrepreneurial spirit to establish a house painting company and commercial painting company that would prioritize customer satisfaction, quality, and superior craftsmanship above all else.

Like many of his team members, Apostoli finds working on historical restorations to be especially rewarding—but most of all, he loves witnessing clients’ smiles when they first see the results of their finished project.

DJ Dorsey – Foreman/Trainer

DJ has nearly ten years of experience in both painting and construction, and particularly enjoys refining his craft with Victorian restorations and fine finish work. DJ serves as a foreman for Old World Painting, overseeing projects to make sure they run smoothly from start to finish. He also leads the training and onboarding process for new employees, ensuring that all team members follow the company’s standards for high-quality work.

Craig Klekman – Foreman

Craig began his career working for a general contractor, and quickly realized that painting and carpentry projects were his preferred types of work. Today, Old World Painting’s clients benefit from his 10+ years of expertise in this area, which goes beyond painting baseboards and trim work to include carpentry repairs and refinishing when needed. As foreman, Craig leads the customer experience and oversees quality control. He works closely with clients to make sure their input is heard throughout the process, their expectations are met, and that any issues that may arise are resolved immediately.

From our initial meeting to discuss an estimate through the entirety of the project, Apostoli displayed the utmost professionalism and treated us with courtesy. The standards he holds his crew to exceeded my expectations and the final product is outstanding. I would recommend Old World Painting to anyone in the area looking for a high quality contractor. In the future, any painting needs I have will be served by Apostoli and his team at Old World Painting.
