Upon graduation, he pursued a full-time career with the same company, eventually rising to Regional President. In 1997 Steve and his wife moved to Raleigh, NC to start The Paint Company. After 24 years in the residential painting industry, Steve sold The Paint Company in order to pursue his Christian passions.

WHAT PEOPLE SAY ABOUT OUR PAINTING COMPANY

From start to finish the whole crew was world class. Job was completed in the time they promised. I highly recommend Orange Elephant! Keep up the good work and I will definitely call you in the future when I need any other work done!

Karen Thompson, ★★★★★

Hired Orange Elephant to do an interior paint job. Expected the project to take longer and cost more. Completely satisfied by the professional service, timeliness of the crew, and communication with their team. Will definitely be using them for future work.

Randall Graham, ★★★★★

I couldn’t have been more pleased with Orange Elephant. Their crew was prompt and respectful and did a wonderful job. The finished product was exactly like Kelly & Chris Edwards promised it would be. I definitely would recommend them and will use them in the future!!!

Robin Hook, ★★★★★

Very professional, timely and price was very very reasonable. Would highly recommend and definitely will be using again for all my properties!!

Ryan Brown, ★★★★★

Chris, Kelly and everyone involved at Orange Elephant does an outstanding job. The timeliness from scheduling the quote to being at my home to do the work was great. Orange Elephant finished the work in a timely manner while paying special attention to detail and getting it right the first time. I was particularly happy that Chris came to my house to inspect the work done and ensure I was 100% satisfied with work completed. I would recommend Orange Elephant to anyone and their pricing is very competitive. The fact they can do much more than just paint is a HUGE plus for them as well. We had fence work, sheet rock, taping, stonework, gutter cleaning, and much more done. Thanks again.

John Prichard, ★★★★★
