About Us

Who We Are

Reardon Painting was founded in 1984 by Charles Reardon after he returned from being in the Army and moved back to his hometown of Bloomington, IN. His mission to serve didn’t cease when he was out of the military. Over the next few years, Charles accumulated a wealth of knowledge and experience in addition to a growing list of satisfied customers.

Despite our past few decades of growth, Reardon Painting is still the same family-owned painting company from Bloomington, Indiana. We stick close to our roots and are proud of our unique history and providing the highest quality work.

Reardon Painting has been able to expand to provide additional services and new projects with the demand continuing to grow over the years. In order to handle the increasing amount of projects, the team has been able to continue to grow to be able to provide the services at the time you need them. Our services cover anything from a standard home renovation to a large-scale commercial project.

Over 30 years ago, our team was founded on the principles of quality, precision, and personal touch. We’ve been going strong for over three decades now and that tradition remains at the core of our business model.

We are and always have been professional painters. The Reardon Painting team delivers the unbeatable quality and unwavering customer service that we have upheld since 1984.

We can help you get the job done exactly how you want it. Let’s work together to bring your paint dreams into reality.

  • Transforming Front Doors: A Cost-Effective Makeover by Reardon Painting
    The homeowner was told the only option was to replace the front door. Not only is the homeowner extremely happy with the way the entry door turned out, we were able to save him well over $8,000 from not having to replace it. Reardon Painting would like to thank Eddie for doing a wonderful job on the door!
  • John Waldron Arts Center in Bloomington
    In January, the John Waldron Arts Center in Bloomington, Indiana reopened after being closed for almost two years. During this time, several repairs and upgrades were made. Reardon Painting is proud to contribute to the revitalization of this historical building that’s served our community of artists and performers. Working late into the night, we sprayed the crown molding, ceiling, and walls with Pharoah’s Gold by Modern Masters to bring out what the building represents – wisdom, extravagance, and prosperity.
