About Us

We love working for homeowners, transforming and refreshing their homes and lives. But we also apply paint and stain finishes for our remodeling division clients as well as many of the finest cabinet makers in the Twin Cities.

Here's What You Should Know About UsWe are a division of Murphy Bros. Design | Build | Remodel

We think of ourselves a little differently than a mere painting company. As a division of a highly respected design/build remodeling company, we have been the finishing touch on thousands of home renovations, involving cabinets, walls, ceilings, stairs, doors, and windows.  And some of those remodels have been award-winning projects!

Every review from one of our remodeling division clients is in effect a review of our paint division since we did that work too.

Murphy Bros. is a 2-time winner (2017 & 2023) of the BBB Torch Award for Ethics in Business.  We are also a values-driven company that defines not only who we hire, but how we operate, make decisions, and treat others on a daily basis.

"Having grown up in the industry and through remodeling a couple of my own homes, I know the importance of good design and efficient production. I believe in finding something you can be passionate about and helping others along the way. People want to know they are valued and feel their contribution is meaningful. When that happens, everything works. Happy employees, happy customers."

"I believe communication across all departments with key stakeholders is the best insurance against missed deadlines and that terrible thing called "rework". Do it once and do it right."


Brandon Miller

"I believe in working the plan, adapting to conditions on the ground and giving every day your best shot. As they say in golf, no putt ever went in that didn't make it to the hole."
