Chad and Lee Thayer

Pelican Painting Company Provides expert Residential, Commercial, and Industrial Painting Services.

Since 1980 we've been the preferred painters for Sarasota, Bradenton, and the surrounding communities of Siesta Key, Longboat Key, Palmer Ranch, and Lakewood Ranch.

Brothers Chad, Lee, and Mike Thayer are actively involved in every project to ensure your complete satisfaction and they are very proud of the relationships that they have built with the Homeowners, Business Owners, and Property Managers they have served over the years. Chad, Lee, and Mike are all equally proud of the number of referrals and repeat business they have received from these customers.

Everyone on our team of skilled and experienced painters and craftsmen is polite and courteous, and they have undergone extensive background checks and screenings. We won't let someone into your home or business unless we think they are good enough to work on our own home or business.
