A bit about us

Luke ("Tony") Scarmardo began his career in the painting and decorating field in the early 1970's, as a painter's helper and quickly worked his way up to journeyman painter. During this time he worked with many well known painting contractors in the Austin area, honing his skills in preparation to strike out on his own.

In 1976 Scarmardo Paining was born and in 1979 his wife, Cherry Scarmardo, joined the company as a painter and office manager. Over the years they have worked side by side on both residential and commercial projects, and have earned a reputation for excellence and perfection amongst both clients and peers alike.

During the mid 80's, as Austin swelled with the real estate boom moving across the country, Scarmardo Painting grew with it, hiring several employees and winning substantial contracts with some of the area's top new home builders. Chances are, if you purchased a Doyle Wilson Home during this time, Scarmardo Painting gave it its color.

After the boom died down and the demand for large-crew contractors subsided, Scarmardo Painting returned to its roots as a family company, with Tony and Cherry doing most of the work as a husband and wife team.

In 2002 Scarmardo Painting became Scarmardo Painting, Inc. and began to focus their work more on residential projects. They take great pride in being able to manage each client to ensure that their vision of that new nursery, dining room, or entire remodel becomes reality.

Never working on more than two jobs at any given time allows them to give quality service and attention to each client's needs. Personally assisting with color and decorating ideas, scheduling, and product selection are just a few of the things that set Scarmardo Painting, Inc. apart from the crowd.
