The Molecular Story

Why Molecular Coatings?

A Different name for a different type of company

At it’s core, Molecular Coating’s strives to stand out among the rest. The name “Molecular” came from the idea that we look at every element of painting, right down to it’s molecules. We apply that level of detail and understanding to everything we do.

More than that, however, is the idea that Molecular Coatings is a different type of name for a different type of company. We go above and beyond to do what other painting companies don’t. It is our main goal to build a strong relationship with every customer, to get a firm understanding of their project. We return every phone call within 24-hours, and keep the lines of communication open at all times.

We want to stand out, to strive to create the best quality project possible, and to leave our customers with something that they’re happy with and we’re proud of. That is the Molecular way.
