> About Us


I would like to thank you and your crew that worked on the project for U.S. Cellular Field; they had performed above and beyond all expectations during some extreme conditions. The workmanship, without a doubt, is the best I have seen in quite a while. . . from all of us at the Cell and the Chicago White Sox – Great Job!!!

More than 30 years ago, Donald Steadman and David Helmer had a vision to utilize their knowledge, experience and desire to become leaders in the painting industry.

Beginning modestly as Don & Dave’s Painting in 1977 the process began, and in 1979 they incorporated as All-Tech Decorating Company.

All-Tech Decorating Company has grown due to the collaboration of a trained workforce, knowledgeable project managers and a dedicated support team. All-Tech Decorating has become a name synonymous with quality, reliability and safety. Utilizing the most advanced technology available, we are continuously improving the bidding process, field application methods and material selection to cost-effectively service our customers. In 2006, as a result of continued perseverance the company expanded and established a national presence with a new specialty coatings division. All-Tech Decorating has now expanded beyond the Chicagoland area to servicing clients throughout the US.
