About Us

Rodger Osteen began Painting by Rodger in 1995 after 20 years of working in residential and commercial remodeling services.

Rodger’s career began in the mid-1970s. He started as a painter’s helper in his family’s business in Greenville, South Carolina before leaving for college. Rodger moved away from home to study interior design at Winthrop University and then began his own business. He worked in commercial and residential painting, home restoration, and wallpaper installation throughout South Carolina and along the east coast.

In 1995, he made his way home to Greenville and began Painting by Rodger. Since then, he has provided residential painting and home improvement services for the upstate of South Carolina.

Rodger loves making a difference in his clients’ homes and meeting their home improvement needs, from exceptional paint jobs to managing crews to suggesting fellow contractors for specialty work.



Keith has been painting all of his life. He has more than 30 years in the profession and has all the talent and skills required for a high-quality paint job. Keith has been with us for more than 10 years but worked in a large commercial cabinet painting business before coming to us. Working in a spray booth for more than five years, he knows all the materials and methods of applying high-end quality finishes on both cabinets and furniture. Many of our customers are surprised that his work did not come from a factory. Keith uses his many other valuable skills to help us with interior painting.


Jimmy is both a worker and partner in many projects. He is our exterior specialist. He worked in roofing for more than five years before he started painting with us. Jimmy does a lot of soffit and boxing repair, as well as qualified roof inspections. When necessary, Jimmy puts together small crews and subcontracts special projects. His strong management skills along with his superior trade skills are a powerful asset to us.


Mason is family and a great benefit to us while he works his way through the University of South Carolina. He has more than 10 years of experience in home improvement. Mason helps manage jobs and scheduling our workers and contractors. He's a hard worker and a great painter.


Carlos is our strongest contractor. He keeps up a strong workforce of painters. When we need more manpower, Carlos helps us get large projects with short schedules done quickly. He has over 15 years of experience in painting and the better part of a century in experience within his company. Their efficiency and interior painting skills are extremely dependable and make them a pleasure to work with.


Christian is our newest team member. He has over a decade of painting experience. Polite and friendly, he is a welcome professional to our crew.

Kevin Cash

Kevin Cash is a third-generation building contractor from upstate. He has been providing high-quality residential builds for more than 20 years. If you can visualize it, Kevin can build it. I personally think his floor finishing services, whether it is a new install or refinishing, are unbeatable. But floors are only a small part of what his team does when they can build a house from the ground up. From grading a site to having us paint it, every detail is done with quality, skill, and professionalism. Just as with our realtors and builders, we share a quality network of contractors to provide as much help you may need.

Rodger and his team did a great job getting our house ready to put on the market. No detail was overlooked. They worked non stop and got a huge job done quickly which we appreciated! I highly recommend.

Burgess Rodgers

Rodger is amazing at what he does. He has done extensive work on 3 foreclosure homes of mine. Each one sold above asking price on the same day they were placed on market! He knows what has to be done, is able to run with the project, does excellent work, is dependable, trustworthy and honest. He's definitely my go to guy and I would never hesitate to recommend him to anyone who is in need of his services.

Pam Kazer

Rodger gave me the house of my dreams. All the renovations he did were of superior quality. From painting the cabinets to painting some of my furniture, no detail was overlooked. His crews were very courteous and never made a mess. We had him help us with design and color selection and they were perfect. He even helped us find the right contractors to fix the roof and heating. He has been doing work for us for more than 15 years and I'm sure we will have him back soon!

Helen Hoover

Rodger has helped us with many projects. He is very talented and professional with colors and ideas for painting and wall paper projects. He also refinished our hardwood floors.
