Mark Lambert, Owner & Operator
Serving El Paso County & Colorado Springs
Five Star Painting of Colorado Springs is marked by professionalism, commitment, and strong leadership. All of those qualities are founded on the example set by Mark Lambert, our owner and founder. Mark started Five Star Painting of Colorado Springs because he wanted to serve the people of El Paso County and Colorado Springs by providing high-quality commercial and residential painting projects. His dedication to service began at a young age.
Originally from California, Mark graduated from high school in Long Beach. Shortly afterward, he followed the example set by his father and grandfathers—he enlisted. He went on to serve in multiple locations and assignments throughout the U.S. and Europe, as well as multiple combat deployments. After 22 years, he retired at Ft. Carson in Colorado Springs.
Though he retired from military service, Mark knew that he wanted to continue applying the character and leadership he had acquired through decades as a soldier. He chose the painting industry as his mode of service and never looked back. He began providing small residential painting projects, learning his trade from industry leaders such as Sherwin Williams and the Painters Decorators Contractors Association (PDCA).
Growth as a Commercial & Residential Painter
Over time, he began providing larger and larger jobs, bringing his commitment to excellence to every project. Now, he and his team of 14 painting crews have completed jobs all over the United States for commercial clients and homeowners, providing professional and beautiful results. His skill and high standards are demonstrated with every project his crew completes.
Mark’s dedications to excellence are founded on one thing: customer satisfaction. Every call, every free estimate appointment, and every project is designed to make his customers happy and satisfied. His favorite part of his job by far is the opportunity to meet new people—as Colorado Springs’ premier residential painting contractor, he meets 5 to 7 new homeowners every day. Mark is happy to say that much of his job is not just painting walls and homes, but building relationships and making new friends with his customers.
