Here’s A Few Important Things To Know About Us

Colorwheel isn’t a franchise or modeled after any other Southeast Wisconsin painting company. We’re unique!

If you’re looking for a run-of-the-mill painter, there are tons of options. Colorwheel takes a more personal, consultative, business-like approach. We take every step and detail seriously to ensure you get the solutions you need at the right price and ENJOY our process.
