Our Story

Jimmy Canabe founded J. Canabe’s Painting in 2003. While working for another company, he felt the urge to run his own business. Feeling that he had a lot to offer customers in New Jersey, he opened J. Canabe’s Painting and became the captain of his own ship, with the goal of building one of the most respected painting companies in NJ.

Prior to opening his company, Jimmy studied physical education in college where he also learned English as a second language. Over the course of the last 13 years, J. Canabe’s Painting has completed more than 2,500 jobs, and the company has reached a number of important milestones. Canabe is passionate about providing excellent customer service by only hiring people with strong characters and teaching them the skill of painting. By building a strong and respectful team, he has created a painting company that homeowners can rely on to get the job done while showing their home the respect it deserves.

In the beginning, Jimmy struggled to delegate tasks to others, preferring to do everything on his own. Upon realizing the importance of surrounding himself with high-quality employees and high-quality painters. Since then, the business has flourished and he is able to fulfill the company’s mission of transforming customer’s homes and commercial spaces while providing the best painting experience. By building a reliable team, he has also given himself the ability to spend time with his four-year-old son and one-year-old daughter.

J. Canabe’s Painting is proud to be a humble leader in the community and a supporter of Paint It Forward, a charity-based project that provides residential painting services for people like single parents, widows and veterans who are unable to afford hiring someone themselves. The company supplies the funds and supplies needed for this great cause.

J Cannabe’s Painting is also an involved member of the PDCA and the 2013 and 2014 recipient of the “Angie’s List Super Service Award.”
