Company Story

​Bill Dettmann founded a painting business in 1977. He entered the residential coatings industry to upgrade the levels of professionalism and quality of the work product usually delivered. It was a time when more durable, long lasting interior and exterior coatings were first being introduced to the marketplace. Bill believed in doing things one way–the right way–using the best materials, applying technology where necessary, and always achieving each client’s unique vision for their property.

Dettmann-Claus Painting specializes in applying long lasting coatings by using only the best products and paying attention to performing superior site preparation. Each coating recommended has been individually tested and certified as the highest grade. All products resist fading, chipping and cracking by forming a permanent waterproof bond with the surface. We offer the latest architectural techniques, and our coating options include energy efficient, fire retardant and environmentally sensitive paints.

The products we recommend are vapor permeable, bond completely, are environmentally safe, and are offered in an endless variety of colors. We recommend interior/exterior paints with lifetime guarantees from the manufacturer. For interior design consideration we offer unique and unusual choices found no other place in St. Louis. Our full line of odorless and environmentally safe interior coatings complies with every standard required by the industry and the government. We have many client homes where our exterior painting has lasted ten years and beyond.

The Dettmann-Claus Company’s craftsmen, supervisors and field consultants take pride in every project. From prep to clean-up our goal is to ensure your expectations are met and the project is a success. We “Paint to Please” by making sure each client’s unique needs are being met prior to job kick off, during the work process, and after final clean up. We believe so strongly in doing business this way that final payment is expected only after we have completed each aspect on every project.
