Company History

On February 1, 1983 after working for his father’s drywall and painting business for 10 years, Dave Rohde branched out and started Dave Rohde Interiors & Exteriors. For the next 17 years he and his employees strived to become a leading residential & light commercial painting contractor in the La Crosse & Onalaska area. Consistently providing exceptional quality & dependable service were the keys in building a strong customer and builder client base. On January 2, 2000 the company became incorporated and the name was changed to Rohde Custom Painting. In December 2011 the name was shortened to Rohde Painting. Today Dave's son, Ben, is the working 3rd generation and has several years of experience learning the painting skills, the lessons of good character, and the rewards of a job well done. Rohde Painting continues to learn about the newest products and tools which enables them to provide their clients with the latest innovations, to build and foster long lasting relationships. Rohde Painting looks to the future as your leading residential painting contractor.
