Island Budget Painting is known as one of Hawaii’s premier painting contractors with the capability to handle projects ranging from small residential jobs to luxury homes and office buildings.

How can owner Ted Wexler offer clients the best prices in the business for comparable jobs? In a word, experience. Wexler and his crew of highly qualified professionals have a combined experience of more than 37 years in the business and this translates into efficiency.


“Working with a large, experienced contractor does not have to cost more, because we know exactly how to proceed and have all the latest equipment,” Wexler says. “Hiring an amateur painter is like hiring a novice computer technician … they may give you a lower per hour price but it will take them lots more time to achieve the desired results. And the results may not be exactly what you had hoped for. When we quote a price, we explain exactly what it will take to do a perfect job … meaning one that will be right the first time. If we know that existing surfaces have to be properly prepared in order to prevent cracking or peeling down the road, we will so advise the client. When paint or stains are properly applied, they will outlast a poorly executed job every time and save the client money in the long run.”

Among Wexler’s very long roster of satisfied, repeat clients are Tesoro Service Stations and some of Hawaii’s leading architects and contractors. Property managers, management companies specializing in townhomes and apartment buildings, and homeowners associations are also regular clients, requiring not only new paint jobs but ongoing maintenance. Realtors upgrading a home to enhance its saleability also call on Wexler, often with tight deadlines to meet.

“People often assume that because your company handles big projects, you won’t be available for the smaller jobs,” Wexler said. “That just isn’t the case with Island Budget Painting. We enjoy the challenge of transforming a house or apartment for an owner with a great paint job.”


Wexler is a specialist in color selection and can assist clients in making choices and matching existing colors or furnishings, as well as advise on the best products for the job, taking into account such factors as weather conditions in the area. His crew is experienced working with difficult job sites that may require scaffolding and operating within the parameters set by condominiums affecting access, parking, and times that work can be performed. Island Budget Painting also provides concrete repair, which is often called for in commercial contracts involving older buildings that are being restored or converted for new uses.
