About Us

History: Erik Blitte founded Tenleytown Painting in 1980. Erik is the third generation of his family to live in the Tenleytown area and attend Wilson High School. His passion for home improvement continues a family tradition. Erik’s grandfather was an architect and builder whose work can be seen across Northwest Washington, D.C., and his two uncles continued the family trade with a construction business. Over 30 years, the business has grown by recommendations and a focus to serving neighborhoods and community. Tenleytown Painting’s work has reached thousands of homes, hundreds of businesses, and many community landmarks.

Service Values: We are committed to providing a positive service experience. We work very hard to assign the right crew to the right job. Because we know each person we assign to a team, we can ensure that each of our projects are handled with trained skill. We are proud of our team – most of whom have been with us  for more than 15 years.
Recently,  two full-time carpenters  joined us – allowing us to provide increased building services.
