About M&E Painting

Our Story

M&E Painting was founded in 2005 by Matt Shoup. Matt painted his way through college, graduated from Colorado State University in 2003 and married his college sweetheart Emily in 2004.

They settled down in Fort Collins to begin their life together and Matt’s corporate career in mortgage banking. In 2005, Matt was laid off suddenly and founded M&E Painting that same year with only $100 to his name, a passion for entrepreneurship, and a desire to support his family.

At the time of M&E Painting’s inception, the lack of customer service and trade excellence was painfully apparent in the paint contracting industry. Matt vowed to go against the common perception of home service professionals to deliver both. As a company, we promise that you will not only be thrilled with our paint job, but also with the service you receive from us.
