When we are painting your home, we take extreme care of your property. You will see professional painters who will properly prepare the surfaces first, cover the areas they are not painting, thoroughly clean up each day and paint finishing of the highest standards.
Whether you want to just freshen up a room or change the style and feel of your entire home, VanGo Painting will help you achieve your vision. Our expert painters can perform all levels of prep work on your interior projects, everything from new walls that just need some color to extensive remodeling. The prep work is 75% of a job. Our painters receive on-going training on the techniques and materials that are best suited for each individual project.
At VanGo Painting, we work closely with our paint suppliers in taking responsibility for reducing our impact on the environment. We respect the customs, cultures, and social needs in all the communities we work in.
We are always trying new processes and new products to see if they help the environment without taking away from the quality. We consider the environmental impact of our actions by using eco-friendly products that are also durable, which have been vigorously tested to last the test of time.

VanGo Painting started operations in 2008. Daniel decided it was time to create a service that would add value to people's homes in a declining market. He began partnering with real estate agents throughout Southwestern Michigan. In particular, Realty Executives and The Heap's Team.

Daniel's background in color training enabled him to incorporate a design service that would help stage homes for resale. In addition, his creative influence also provided homeowners with designs that were comtemporary and uniquely their own. His ability to perceive what the homeowner wanted combined with a meticulous attention to detail was able to create a color scheme that was tailored to their vision.

This consistent method of operation is what lended to the exponential growth of VanGo Painting. Daniel only uses the best paint products on the market. His preferred choice being Benjamin Moore. He also demands the utmost attention to details and is never willing to cut corners or neglect what was promised to the homeowner.

The name VanGo was derived from Daniel's beginning days of buying a van and paint brush. The word was taken to be a pun on the artist Van Gogh but was more connected to a standard of excellence as well as a van that was on the go. The bright neon green has become the business' signature color and is well recoginized throughout the community. VanGo Painting eagerly looks forward to servicing you soon and knowing that an impression will endure as long as your paint job or until you get bored with your color!
Interior Painting
We paint trim, ceiling and walls that express your color preference and persona. Decorative Faux finishes, various textures, mono and multi-color selections. Meticulous preparation such nail hole filling, caulking, drywall sanding and priming, keeping a well kept and clean work environment with razor sharp detail lines and a home left as clean as we started except for the newly beautified interior. Benjamin Moore paints are our preferred choice of paint. They provide exceptional coverage and quality of color and also include a spa and bath paint for high moisture areas where water marks can be a nuisance. The aura line of Benjamin Moore almost always guarantees a two coat coverage over any color.

Exterior Painting
We pressure clean every exterior surface to remove environmental impediments thus enabling our paint to bond properly. Our biggest concern on exteriors is prevention of water accessibility to the unpainted surface. We alleviate this concern by using a moisture meter to test levels of moisture in the surface. In addition, we use Kevlar lifetime expandable caulks which tighten up small crevices to prevent moisture infiltration. All surfaces are tested for lead and if found to contain lead, we use the FDA lead abatement protocol for removal. We use the highest quality acrylic and ceramic coatings to contend with Michigan's severe weather conditions. Benjamin Moore paints are our preferred choice of paint. We also provide certified Williamsburg historical colors for those who have older homes.

Daniel and Frankie were professional and a pleasure to be around. For us, our two dogs, even our neighbors (who happily tolerated having their house covered in plastic for days at a time) - putting our house (and garage and shed) solely in the hands of VanGo was something we never questioned or second guessed for a moment. VanGo should consider itself permanently recommended by the Churches, and we look forward to having them back for indoor projects in the near future.
-- Stephanie and Brad Church

We are extremely pleased with the service and quality results of our recent paint job. We had the deck repainted, chimney sealed and outside wood trim repainted. They were meticulous with detail. They are very friendly, courteous and hardworking (often working until the last of the daylight). We highly recommend VanGo to anyone who needs painting done.
-- Mike and Amy Semenak

We highly recommend VanGo when considering a contractor for your interior or exterior paint job. They treated our home like they were painting their own home. VanGo is also knowledgeable about paint products and about colors and tones that work well together. We are extremely pleased with the color combination of our home, and the time Dan spent consulting with us on color choices had dramatic affects. We intend to use VanGo for any future jobs.
-- Jacquie and Simon Blackwell

This fall, Dan Leoni and his crew painted the exterior of our 80 year old three season cottage in Union Pier. He did an excellent job under some of the worst conditions you can image. Dan was a pleasure to deal with and the finished job is beautiful.

In August of 2009, we hired Daniel Leoni of VanGo Painting to paint the exterior of our house in Stevensville. We are very happy with the results. Daniel spent time with us and carefully helped us choose colors that blended for the look we wanted. Their prep work was very detailed and meticulous and the painting was done neatly and thoroughly. We would highly recommend him without hesitation for all of your painting needs.
-- Pat and Diane Underwood

Dan recently painted the interior of our home on Golden Crest in Stevensville in preparation for puting our house on the market. Dan was extremely easy to work with and went above and beyond our expectations with his expertise and artistic abilities. The colors he recommended are wonderful and his painting performance was excellent. We would be happy to speak with future clients if that would be helpful.

My wife and I would like to share our experience with VanGo (Daniel Leoni) Interior & Exterior Painting. We recently had the misfortune of having a fire in our home. Before restoration started, my wife decided it would be an opportune time to change the great room color to a bolder look. We contacted contractors, got several additional painting bids and decided to give VanGo a try. VanGo was a good decision for the following reasons:
  • Pricing was very competitive
  • Quality of the workmanship was very professional
  • Starting and completion times were as promised
  • Paid attention to detail
  • Went out of their way to make sure we were happy
  • Made us aware of any needed repairs and fixed minor ones at no additional charge
  • Advised us about various paints, quality, durability and surfaces
  • Offered suggestions and assisted with color selections
    As you can tell, we are very satisfied and have decided to go ahead and use them for additional painting as well as other projects around our home.
