About Spray ‘n Coat

Our history

Spray ‘n Coat Painting’s roots date back to May of 1980 when Mark’s dad Rod first started M & R Painting. Rod painted in Montana where he grew up and in Idaho where he moved the family to in 1984. Using homemade scaffolding and the help of his wife, Marcella, Rod painted nearly 40 foot tall barns along with homes for just about anyone who would put them to work.

Both Rod and Marcella grew up on farms which instilled a solid work ethic and meant they were raised with the idea that, “if you don’t work you don’t eat.” With three young children by 1986, Rod certainly had a family to feed, and if you’ve met his son Mark, you know that was a big task! Rod continued painting through the 80’s and early 90’s until he was finally able to follow his call in to Christian ministry on a full time basis and retire his painting brush.

About a decade later, Mark was graduating from high school in Pocatello and Rod decided it was time to pass on some of the skills he had learned in painting. They painted a couple homes and pretty soon Mark was off and running and painting homes in the summers in order to pay for college tuition at Idaho State University. Still using the name M & R Painting, Mark painted close to 50 homes while earning a Bachelor’s degree in Business Administration without any student loan debt thanks to hard work that he learned from his father.

Skipping forward about a year and a half to the summer of 2009, Mark gets married to his college sweetheart just as the company he is working for is closing its doors in the height of the recession. With a new family to provide for and no job, Mark falls back on his painting experience and starts Spray ‘n Coat Painting here in Boise, ID. Without a bunch of money to spend on advertising, Mark does the only thing he knows how to do and starts knocking on neighbor’s doors and offering his services.

While starting from scratch isn’t easy, Mark providing the best quality painting he knew how to give and unforgettable customer service and Spray ‘n Coat Painting began to take off. By 2012, the company was painting over a 100 homes a year and continues to grow each year. The focus is still on providing our very best quality and customer service that is next to none.


Our standards

We continue to focus on high quality workmanship and top-notch customer service. We have found that every customer has unique concerns and needs and we hope to customize each painting project to the customer in order to give the best over all painting solution at the best possible price. This requires that we spend time with each of our customers at the beginning of the project discussing their goals for the project and how we can best meet those goals and hopefully surpass their expectations.

We don’t believe in a “one-size-fits-all” approach to painting, but instead we recognize that there are dozens of different types of surfaces that we paint along with different environments and level of traffic that these painted surfaces have to hold up under. This requires that we be highly educated and versed in the dozens of different products that we use and are available to us to best meet each specific painting need.
