About Zoab Painting

Working to make a difference

Our Story

Hi! I’m Patrick Bardwell, founder of Zoab Painting. A little bit of background about me. I graduated from Winterset High School in 1986 and attended Colorado Institute of Art and Interior Design. After graduating, I moved back to Winterset to begin a career in the painting and drywall industry and now have over 33 years of experience in those trades under my belt. With my accumulated knowledge in the field of residential and commercial painting, I established Zoab Painting in 2019.

Some of our most commonly

asked questions...

Are your estimates really free?

Of course! Not only are they free, but there is no obligation or typical sales pressure. We value you and respect your decision.

Does painting add value to my home? (Either interior or exterior)

A fresh coat of paint is like magic for your home's value. It instantly ups the curb appeal, makes it more inviting for buyers and gives it a modern put-together feel We ensure top-notch quality that boosts value. Plus, we can consult with you on what colors sell in your area.

What painting services do you handle?

Having 30 years of experience under our belt, there's not much we can't paint! That said, we focus primarily on residential exteriors. But if you like, we can paint interiors, cabinets, doors, fences, decks (stain also), pergolas, shutters, tree houses, you name it. We also provide services to businesses in the area looking to freshen up their offices and curb appeal of their business.

Are you licensed and insured?

Definitely! Don't leave home without it. You can trust that you are in safe hands with our team.

What color should I choose!?

This is a fantastic question and the answer combines a bit of your own personality and a bit of what is currently trending in the area. This is why we work with you every step of the way, letting you know what colors are in vogue and letting you have the final say on your castle's new look.

Where are you located and what areas do you serve?

Our heart is for Central Iowa. Our owner and many of our team are born and raised in Iowa and wouldn't have it any other way. With that we serve all around Des Moines from Waukee to Altoona, from Indianola to Ankeny, and everywhere in between (and some places even further out). Just give us a quick call or text and we'll let you know.

What makes your company different?

I am so glad you asked! For one, we are born and raised in Iowa and we have no intention of living anywhere else. We've also been in the industry for over 30 years so we've seen it all. Our tools have simply become extensions of our body and we love every minute creating masterpieces out of our neighbors homes.

Along with that, we have some of the fastest turnaround times in the industry (often less than 2 weeks from estimate to WOW) without sacrificing quality workmanship (that's what 30 years will do for ya).

So when should I paint or repaint my home?

Outside: Every 5-10 years, watch for weather wear like fading, peeling. chipping. Wood needs it more often (3-7 years). South-facing areas? Keep an extra eye!

Inside: 7-10 years is the norm, but high-traffic zones might need it sooner. Dents, scuffs, fading? Time for a refresh!

Moisture monsters: Kitchens & baths see more wear, address peeling fast.

Style shift? Go for it! But neutrals often sell better.

Remember: Regular cleaning & touch-ups make your paint job last!
