FAMOUS PAINTERS was established in 1998 by Allen Shipps. It's goal from inception was to promise professional, yet personalized service to homeowners.... THAT MEANS work done right the first time, with quality products, and NOT leaving messes for the customer to clean up! That promise hasn't changed, the ownership has.
Al has retired and turned FAMOUS PAINTERS over to his long time foreman and Lincoln native, Nick Kreifels.

"I have been around a lot of painters over the years, and I chose Nick to take over because I believe he is one of the best painters in town. Even more importantly, I know that Nick is hard working and trustworthy." - Allen Shipps

Nick normally carries a crew of three PROFESSIONAL painters
*Care about the finished product.
*Know how to behave in someone else's home.
​ *Are trustworthy and drug free.

​That's who will show up to paint your home, folks! One professional, responsible crew, that the owner knows personally and, oftentimes, works right alongside of.

Estimates are free, and detailed proposals are left with potential customers, as well as a top notch 16 page reference list... chances are great, you know people we've painted for over the years!

​We understand that cost is a major factor when deciding on a painter... but not the only factor. You would also like to have darn good idea of the QUALITY of work to expect, not only before contracting, but before calling someone to get an estimate... so please check out the other categories on this site. They're designed to take some of the guess work out of the selection process, and to save you time and the frustration that can happen, when just calling painters at random.
