Delivering painted walls and smiling faces

About Tar Heel Painters

Our Roots Began In Your Neighborhood

Our Journey

My name is John Kent, Owner and Operator of Tar Heel Painters.

An experienced residential painter, I opened this business to serve the North Carolina community and to continue doing what I am passionate about. Having restored our previous home in the Northeast, a site on the National Registry of Historic Places, my wife and I are happy to be back in our home state, and proud to once again be a part of the rich history that is North Carolina. I have assembled a team of masterful painters to take your space to the next level.
