BFB Painting was founded by Bryon Bogenrief in the Twin Cities about 30 years ago. They provide commercial and residentialinterior and exterior painting and related services.

Byron has had many employees over the years including Bryon’s daughters, his son Ben, and son-in-law Dan Nichols. In 2011, BFB Painting expanded and Dan launched a second location in Sioux Falls, SD. Bryon and his son Ben are still operating the original Twin Cities branch while Dan and his team are headquartered in Sioux Falls. They now both proudly serve their own metro areas with reliable service and professional results that began over 30 years ago.

Minneapolis-St. Paul Metro Area Painting Services

Check out the website to see the variety of surfaces we have painted. We have beautified such places as a college concert hall, college dorms, and gymnasium bleachers. Our work has also brought new life to community areas, homes, rental properties, work areas, offices, apartments, and even swimming pools and high school locker rooms.

We thrive on a job well done!
BFB Painting believes that all painting and repair work depends on the contractor listening to the client and learning what they are envisioning. Each client is unique, and each project holds unique challenges and outcomes.

Minneapolis Houses and Apartments Painting
Whether the house in need of painting is your home or a rental property you own or manage, we understand that communication is an essential part of working in your space.

If the property is a rental, the job needs to happen quickly, between one renter departing and another moving in. If it’s your home, we need to adhere carefully to the agreed-upon schedule so you know when that part of the house will be unavailable.

Minneapolis Small Businesses Painting

Minneapolis Small Businesses Painting
If you own or manage a small business, that’s your workspace. Plus, it’s where you meet with customers or clients. We realize that we might need to schedule our work outside regular business hours to avoid interrupting your work routine.

Our Process

Because we take pride in our work, we use a multi-stage approach to painting. That way, we all understand the process, what it entails, and any mutually agreed-upon extras.

BFB painting, Inc believes the first stage in painting a surface is to communicate, communicate, and communicate again. We value the time we spend with our clients to collaborate on the intended outcome and the means to reach it. We are honest and forthright and will tell you what we can and cannot do on projects.

We support the client in choosing paint and stain colors and sheens since these are key to achieving their expected outcomes. Because we take pride in our work, our multi-stage approach to painting helps all involved understand the process, what it entails, and any mutually agreed-upon changes or extras.

Like Stage 1, Stage 2 takes place before we open any product. Whether our work is inside or out, this is the stage at which we make sure we properly prep the project area. We take steps to protect your property, your pets, your family’s health, the landscaping, and other areas of possible concern.

Prepping walls may include filling nail holes, providing small repairs. These include fixing dents, repairing stress cracks, redoing broken corner beads, and making damaged ceilings look like new.

As with the interior, the second stage for exterior work is about prepping the walls, soffits, gutters, and ground surfaces and roofs. Projects may include scraping and sanding old paint and caulking gaps, especially around windows and doors. We also prime any bare unpainted areas. Again, this is all communicated before the start of the job.

In short, we use best practices to prepare all surfaces and rely on protective equipment to run a safe and efficient project. At BFB Painting, Inc., our painters are skilled at covering furniture and blocking off areas near the project site with plastic barriers.

This stage is when we finally open the paint cans! BFB Painting uses reliable equipment and well-honed techniques to apply the products you choose for your project and protect areas not being painted. We will discuss and note the number of paint coats and the type of product to be used in the preliminary client discussion.

It’s a similar process with exterior painting. We use enough paint coatings to provide the outcome you desire. We also work with the client to protect shrubbery, patios, and other areas not meant for painting

This stage is the clean-up stage, whether it’s the final clean-up or to leave your place tidy until our next workday. We want to be sure our tools and work areas do not impede your traffic areas while finishing the project.

In this final stage, we inspect our work to be sure nothing was missed. We will then invite the client to walk through the newly painted areas to inspect our work and assess the intended outcomes. BFB Painting, Inc will address any questions or concerns promptly.
