About Us

Frank Leigh Painting and Company, Inc. is a painting company specializing primarily in high-end commercial and residential new construction and restoration.

Founded in 1983 by President and Owner, Frank Leigh, we’ve grown over the past 30 years from a single person enterprise to field operations with many of our area’s finest tradespeople now making up several crews, all supported by our experienced office staff.

With projects ranging in size from $100 to $500,000+, we make quality our focus. Because of this philosophy, it is not surprising to see our signs in front of some of the nicest and oldest homes Downtown Charleston, on the resort islands of Kiawah and Seabrook, Daniel Island, Wild Dunes and almost anywhere in the Lowcountry.
