About Us

In the spring of 1987, David Hamilton graduated from Virginia Tech with a degree in business as well as a love for world travel. Throughout his college years, David earned travel money by helping his mother and other real estate agents in Reston prepare homes for re-sale or rent. Once a graduate, however, Dave had to put his diploma to work so he launched Reston Painting & Company having gained a vast amount of knowledge as he enjoyed earning his travel income. Launching RPC allowed Dave to transfer his passion for travel to a love for painting homes and since then, RPC’s reputation as a reliable, trustworthy company with skilled painters who loved their work grew exponentially. Soon after launch, RPC began to get requests to do carpentry, roofing, decks and just about all other building restoration work. They searched and found highly skilled carpenters and tradesmen who took as much pride in delivering an outstanding quality end product as the original crew.

Now 25 years later, Reston Painting & Contracting provides a much larger array of services to residential homes, multi-family communities, and commercial and institutional buildings throughout the Washington, DC metro area. With the experience that only comes from completing over 1,500 restoration jobs, RPC delivers outstanding service through well managed projects that yield complete satisfaction among all its clients.

Associa Cares Annual Vendors Fair

As winter weather and the holidays approach, fall is a great time to support charities. 2015 was RPC’s 7th year participating in the Associa Cares Annual Vendors Fair and we’d like to thank CMC Management for another terrific event. It was great seeing old friends and making many new ones and raising money for Associa Cares, which provides support for those in need after disasters impact their homes. Congratulations on another successful event! You can count on our support next year. Donations can be made through the Associa Cares website.

Ride Allegheny

4 years ago a client invited RPC President, David Hamilton, to take part in The RiDE Allegheny four-day 310 mile ride from Pittsburg to DC. RiDE Allegheny is an annual fund raising event that supports Operation Second Chance, which provides phenomenal support to help local Soldiers, Sailors, and Marines dealing with physical and emotional trauma get their lives back.

Through injury, heavy rain, and freezing temperatures, this group powered through and exceeded their 2015 goals. Please take a moment to learn about RiDE Allegheny and Operation Second Chance. It’s not to late to donate!
