Dependable, adj.: capable of being depended on; reliable. We're the people you can depend on!

Whatever your commercial, industrial, or restoration surface treatment needs, The Dependable Painting Company is fully trained and equipped to handle it. We offer far more than just the ordinary.

Over the years, we have kept pace with the latest technological developments and adapted our operations to best meet the needs of our clients. This allows us to comfortably move from painting industrial plants and machines to boardrooms; from restoring historical landmarks to applying the newest specialty finishes; and from traditional surface preparation to lead paint removal.

We have also kept on top of any concerns over health hazards and environment protection. Dependable Painting’s policies and procedures are structured to fully comply with all local, state and federal regulations. In addition, our employees receive annual training on OSHA regulations. We work very hard to make your experience with us worry free.

Dependable Painting is a family-owned business founded in 1928 by HC Hansen, great grandfather to current owners Cindy Friedmann and Don Hansen, both graduates of Miami University. Cindy has worked within the Company since 1982 and has been President since 2004. She currently serves as a member of the Apprenticeship Committee for the Northeast Ohio Painting and Taping Contractors of America (NOPTCA), is past president of the Ohio Council of The Painting and Decorating Contractors of America (PDCA) and is a member of the Building Owners & Managers Association Associates Council (BOMA). Cindy is married to Tim Friedmann and has two children – Michelle and Steven.

Don, Vice President, has worked for Dependable Painting since 1980. Don sits on the Health and Welfare Board of the Northeast Ohio Painting and Taping Contractors of America (NOPTCA). He too has been active within the PDCA as past president of both the Cleveland Chapter and Ohio Council, as well as a past member of the BOMA Associates Council. He is also a non-practicing member of the Ohio Society of Certified Public Accountants. Don is married to wife Nancy.

While Dependable Painting has changed dramatically since 1928, we continue to guarantee our commitment to service and quality, no matter what your needs. Our commitment is so strong; it’s in our name. Dependable. It’s who and what we are.
