About WBR Painting

WBR Painting is a division of Williamson Building and Remodeling LLC. (WBR)  and was founded in 2019. Co-owners; Josh Williamson, Ezekiel Smoker and Abel Catlin, brother-in-laws who have worked together for 5+ years strive for excellence in everything they do and they have not lost this vision in the process of creating WBR PAINTING. Having recently hired a couple of professional painters and seeing a need for a quality paint service in the Keuka Lake area the decision was made to focus on this one service. While WBR continues to work in a wide range of services WBR Painting is simply a more focused branch of the company. Our goal is to bring quality and efficiency to each job. If you are looking for someone you can trust that will bring you the work you expect, call WBR Painting!


Everthing looks great. Thank you for a truly professional job!

-Jim & Gloria L.

This group of 3 to 4 men from WBR, led by Jim on our job, was outstanding! They were on time every morning, worked hard the entire day, and clean-up and storage of equipment each day was immaculate. This house has four very high peaks on uneven terrain with high ladder work required, there is also a great deal of cut-in work on the trim. All was done with great care and safety for the guys, as well as fine precision and full coverage in the painting. Their cleanliness and use of drop cloths around the house and on the job site was the best. No drip marks and not a speck of paint left on windows. We've had multiple contractors work on our house over the years from initial build and now maintenance. WBR wins the prize for neatness and professionalism. We did get other estimates but this company came highly recommended. The saying goes "You get what you pay for" and we certainly got that and then some. Highly recommended by this very satisfied customer. Thank You Jim, Alex and Nate

-Bill L.

We hired WBR to paint our entire house, walls and trim. They did a FANTASTIC job!! They were also very professional and quick to respond to questions. We would definitely recommend them and use them again for other services.

-Elizabeth S.

We had a great experience with WBR Painting.  They responded promptly for an estimate, came in below the competition, and scheduled us quickly.  They did a nice job of power washing the surfaces to be stained, then applied two coats of stain, both rolling for uniformity and brushing for final finish.  The workmen were polite and pleasant, and arrived when they said they would.  I'm a fan, and will recommend them to others.

-Paul D.

Jim Davis and Alex did an awesome job on repairs, painting and staining our large porches! We would recommend them any time

-Patricia K.

-Thomas M.

These builders/painters have done two jobs for me so far, and have These builders/painters have done two jobs for me so far, and have become my total go-to guys. The first job was painting my house. I was blown away by the quality of their work. They do NOT cut corners! The second job was most recent; they built some front steps to my front porch while it was 25 degrees and blowing snow - amazing reliability! They demolished the broken-down brick work and built composite steps in about a day, with beautiful workmanship. As if that wasn’t enough, they are all super nice, very professional, and as far as I can tell, they are ALL godly workers, whom I feel like I can trust without reservation. I felt their estimates were fair also. Bottom line, these contractors are excellent, and will be my first choice for my future building & remodeling needs!

-Bruce B.

I can not recommend this company enough. Their workmanship was professional and very well done. All the workers were very congenial and helpful with any changes I had.

-Frank S

Very satisfied with the quality of their work. Team was good to work with, efficient in their work. Would hire again for future projects.

-Brian R

WBR did a great job painting my 1929 house in Geneva. The weather wasn't particularly helpful but they persevered and I am happy with the results. The guys were terrific at cleaning up as well.

-Leslie S

Excellent company to work with. Love the outcome of the stained deck. Strong communication skills, take value in their work, and it shows.

-Lisa R

Very responsive. Great quality of work. A pleasure to work with, thank You!!


Jim was a gem to work with! He provided us with a quick and reasonable estimate and worked around our busy rental schedule to get our log home stained and the foundation painted. His crew was very professional and very respectful of our property. They took great care to tape off all the windows and doors, etc. I HIGHLY RECOMMEND WBR!
