Carrington Contracting Inc. started performing repaints for the Apartment Industry and Home Owner Associations in the early 90’s.  Our customers quickly asked us to handle other exterior projects, such as wood replacement and siding installations.  These types of requests pushed Carrington Contracting into exploring new areas of the renovation market.  As a result, today we manage and perform all types of projects.  We work on everything associated with the exterior of the building, including  painting, wood replacement, cement board and vinyl siding, window replacements, roofing,  gutters, drainage, flashing, retaining walls, and more.

For more than 26 years Jim has maintained a strategic focus on single and multi-family exterior painting and renovations.  Under his leadership, and with his team of top-notch professionals, Carrington Contracting, Inc. has grown from a one-man paint crew to a multi-million dollar company performing projects throughout the Mid-Atlantic region.  His goal is to cultivate and maintain successful relationships with each of his customers.
