A great painter, a great legacy.

Ray M. Wolf had a dream. In 1991 he bought paintbrushes and a few rollers then began to ask everyone he knew if they needed anything painted, and thus his works has created the business now known as Ray the Painter. Ray’s commitment to customer service, detail, and professionalism allowed his painting business to grow and flourish over the next several years. Unfortunately, in 2009 Ray passed away after his brief struggle with cancer. Ray left behind a successful company and a great company team. Included in his team was the company's current president Amy Wewers. In December 2012, Amy purchased Ray the Painter from Ray’s wife Mary.

Amy started working for Ray Wolf in 2001. She worked her way up from Painter to Lead Painter, Crew Leader, Estimator, President, and eventually the owner of Ray the Painter. Amy loved working for a company that appreciated not only their customers but also their employees.  She felt like she had a connection with the company. She enjoyed doing her job.

When Amy purchased the company, it was operated out of a 2,400 sq. ft. facility. In June of 2014, she purchased a 7,000 sq. ft. double warehouse. This was a dramatic increase in space, but still needed remodeling to become workable. Walls were built for offices, the other side was designated for the shop, equipped with a spray room. Along with the purchase of the new location, she added two vehicles to to her fleet that you may have seen on the road as they are coated with a paint splash wrap.

Outstanding customer service and professional craftsmanship is what Ray the Painter provides. Our mission statement remains: We stay until the job is done and done right! Satisfaction Guaranteed! In fact, Ray the Painter offers a two-year warranty, which is rare in this industry.

Frequently Asked Questions

How long have you been in business?

Ray the Painter was founded in 1991 in Oklahoma City. Since that time, we’ve built a reputation based on trust, quality work and dependability. Our customers trust us with their homes and possessions —and we don’t take this lightly. Our commitment to neatness, promptness and outstanding work extends to each and every customer.

Are you bonded and insured? Yes, we are.

Will I receive a written, detailed estimate? Yes, we carefully review each jobsite to provide you with a professional estimate that details the scope of each project.

Do I need to put down a deposit before you get started?

Sometimes. Depending on the cost of the project we may request 1/3rd of the total bid as a down payment. We may request progress payments for our larger projects. The final payment is due upon substantial completion of the project. A final walk through ensures there are no touch ups required and the customer is completely satisfied.

Do you have any references?

Yes! We encourage you to read some of our reviews. We have a number of testimonials from customers on our website. You can also find reviews on websites like Angie’s List. We are happy to provide written references from home and business owners across central Oklahoma.

Who will do the actual painting?

All of our painters are full time employees of Ray the Painter and will be clearly identified as such. Our painters are careful, neat and dependable. Unless otherwise arranged, we arrive at the job at 8 am and leave at 4:30 pm. Before leaving every day we make sure our tools are put away, and your jobsite is clean and tidy. 

What type of paint do you use?

We use only top quality paints and products from major manufacturers such as Sherwin-Williams.

What if I change my mind after the job is finished?

Before we begin each job we make sure each customer has reviewed and approved the specified colors and textures for the job. If a change is required after the job is in process, the customer will be billed for the additional labor and materials. If a customer wishes to add any additional jobs to the original bid, labor and materials will be billed accordingly.  

Do you guarantee your work?

Yes. Ray the Painter warrants labor and material for two years. Because we take customer satisfaction seriously, we always encourage our customers to call us if they notice any problems at any time—be it two months or even two years after the job is completed. We stand behind our work!
