Family-Owned in Central Virginia for 30+ Years

wayne and fatherW.W. Enroughty & Son has its roots as a humble, family-owned business. In the early 1960s, founder W.W. Enroughty Sr. started out as a self-employed painting contractor in Richmond, Virginia. He specialized in treating people the way they wanted to be treated, delivering honest work for an honest wage – a philosophy the company still hews to today.

Over the years, Mr. Enroughty found time on weekends to teach his son, Wayne, the fine art of commercial painting. In 1986, after graduating from Hampden-Sydney College, Wayne joined forces with his father to form the W.W. Enroughty & Son corporation, which brought the company in a whole new direction.

Today, we specialize in everything from traditional paint systems and wall coverings to high-performance coatings and various abrasive blasting techniques. We have built a staff of field employees who take pride in providing our clients with the highest quality work performed in a productive, professional and safe manner.

Believing that education is the key to success, we’ve made a commitment to provide our employees with training classes in coating inspection, application and safe work practices. We currently employ more than 100 skilled craftsmen as well as a competent and highly trained office staff in Richmond and Hampton Roads.

About Our Founder

W.W. Enroughty Sr.’s father was a local firefighter who owned a part-time painting operation. Upon his return from service with the United States Marine Corps, William joined his father’s operation and, with three other employees, primarily painted residential and commercial structures.

When his son, Wayne, joined the company after graduating from college, the company began a long period of diverse growth. William passed away in 2010, but the virtues upon which he founded the company – integrity, quality and customer service – live on in W.W. Enroughty & Son.
