 Our Story

Grandpa Moffitt

George Moffitt’s family immigrated from Scotland and settled in Providence, Rhode Island. George worked his way into the painting industry and spent time painting for Brown University and the Providence Public Works Department. In 1959, he with many others, chased a dream of bigger opportunities and better climate and moved the family in a station wagon to California. He settled in Modesto, California and started painting at Gallo Winery eventually retiring after 30 years, as a Paint Superintendent of Gallo Winery. He devised ways to lower himself in the vintage tanks and sandblast the interior to prepare for the next harvest.

Dennis Moffitt

Dennis Moffitt found himself in the painting trade in Modesto, California and opened Dennis Moffitt Custom Painting in 1981. Focusing on residential painting in the Central Valley and throughout the Bay Area until moving back to the East Coast in 1997. He supported his son Mike, in his vision to play college hockey. He sold his business in California and moved the family back to Rhode Island, for Mike to attend high school, for the opportunity to play high school and college hockey. While focusing on Mike becoming the first Moffitt to receive a college degree, he encouraged his Mike to learn how to paint to always have something to fall back on. 

 Our Story

Mike Moffitt

After graduating Iona College, he was working in the financial services industry for Fleet Bank, Bank of America and Merrill Lynch. He realized after some time that he wanted more than to sit in the same seat and talk to people over the phone. He was working nights and weekends for extra money doing small paint job and found himself really enjoying the process and being ‘in business’.

The Start of DMP

With Dennis working for another paint contractor and Mike painting on nights and weekends, Mike’s wife Sarah, suggested ‘Why don’t you guys just go in together and start a real business.” And the 2 painters looked at each other and said, “Huh, that’s a pretty good idea”. DMP formed, and quickly grew, as the trade experience of Dennis and the entrepreneur skills of Mike balanced well together. 

 Our Story


Dennis retired in 2010 to see the next generation flourish. Mike and his wife, Sarah, currently own and operate the business. It continues to be a family run and family friendly business with their 3 daughters, Ava, Mia and Lila often hanging around the office after school to do their homework. Constant improvement in the experience that we deliver and the quality of our projects is what we look to hand off to the next generation.
