Painting: Paint cut in around the edges, then brushed, rolled or sprayed at the proper thickness for proper coverage; applied by professional painters. Our employees are long term, experienced and trained to paint the right way. No sub-contracted workers.

Completion: Once the work is done our crew will clean up and leave the area as they found it. We will review our work with you. You will see clean, straight lines and complete coverage.


Blue Parrot Painting's owner Tim Zaerr began his painting career on the western slope of Colorado. The quality of his work was quickly recognized and his painting skills were soon in demand at the Vail and Beaver Creek resorts painting custom homes, restaurants and hotels. Tim relocated back to the Boulder area where he now paints all types of homes and includes offices, restaurants and commercial buildings in his portfolio.

Tim is well known for the quality of his work, reasonable pricing and superior, professional, yet friendly service.
