Kevin Moynihan



I started the company in 1972 with a partner. I now have been sole owner for over 27 years. Painters Etcetera has served Sudbury and surrounding communities for over 40 years. I get a great deal of enjoyment out of transforming a house in to a gleaming work of art. The work is hard and often dirty, but with it comes a reward. I am pleased to have Ryan join the company and continue its success.

Ryan Moynihan



I began working for the family business in the summer of 1999 at the age of 14. I continued working during summer and winter breaks from school, through college. I attended Bryant University in Smithfield, Rhode Island, graduating in 2008 with a Bachelors degree in Business Management. I found the painting industry to be what I truly enjoy. I like being somewhere new, working on different types of homes, and being able to see the results when the project is complete. I look forward to continuing the great Painters Etcetera name that my father started.

Our Guarantee

Our best guarantee is our reputation. We have been painting in Sudbury and surrounding towns for 43 years. We have painted some homes 4-5 times over that period. Our customers call us back because our work lasts. If there is a problem, we address it. It would be foolish on our part to ignore the issue. We would loose that person as a customer and they would not recommend us to their friends.

For those of you who like numbers, we guarantee our paint and workmanship for four years. Both should, and will last longer, provided substrate is in good condition. We usually recommend 6-8 years between painting. Most houses will have a few “trouble” spots after a few years. No one should have a whole house break down.

Painters Etcetera History

Painters Etcetera has been operating out of its Sudbury location since 1972. At that time, we grew to be the largest painting company serving Sudbury, painting 40 houses a year. Over time, we’ve had many repeat customers, painting a number of homes 4 to 5 times each and redecorating their interior rooms often. It is this history that makes Painters Etcetera successful. Satisfied customers give us repeat business, recommend us to potential clients, and provide references for people who have responded to our advertising.
