Meet Craig Kowalczyk

LIME Painting® of Milwaukee specializes in the restoration, protection, and enhancement of custom residential and commercial properties. LIME’s goal is to see the excitement on clients’ faces as they relive their joy similar to when they first moved into their property.

Craig is a Wisconsin native, growing up on Milwaukee’s North Shore, then later moving to beautiful Lake Country.  Memories and experiences from the beautiful neighborhoods of the region have come to shape his vision for LIME Painting of Milwaukee.  From the architectural integrity of the impressive mansions along Milwaukee’s Lake Shore Drive, to the natural beauty and ode to fine living found throughout Milwaukee’s surrounding communities, LIME Painting of Milwaukee sees beauty and goodness, striving to bring value and enhance life wherever we go.    

Prior to becoming a LIME Painting owner, he acquired many relevant skills that naturally compliment the services offered by LIME Painting of Milwaukee.  Spending time as a property adjuster, Craig became adept at assessing property damage, understanding how weathering and deterioration can affect the integrity and beauty of a structure.  This experience also taught him the value of a detailed and understandable estimate for the benefit of the homeowner.  Experiences in real estate development and later commercial appraisal work provided him with a holistic understanding of how property layout affects the stability of a structure, as well as the benefit of using high performing products.  Most recently, leadership roles have strengthened in him a love for the unique and distinct personalities of each individual and solidified in him the necessity of clear and consistent communication for each customer.

After spending over a decade in various corporate and leadership roles, he began feeling a tug to do something very different.  He began his quest to do something he was passionate and inspired about, something that aligned with his vision and values.  Upon discovering LIME, he was immediately intrigued.  The culture spoke to him.  Then, upon learning that the name “LIME” is an acronym that stands for the company’s values of Love, Integrity, Mission, and Excellence, he fell in love soon thereafter and decided to bring this phenomenal business to Lake Country! 

When he’s not on a job site, meeting with customers and overseeing the crews, Craig enjoys spending as much time as possible outside, enjoying the trails and beauty of Lake Country with his wife Monica and their three boys, David, Kolbe and Stephen.  If you see him out and about, he’s probably enjoying an Oconomowoc lake walk with his sweetheart Josie, an adorable GSP (German Shorthair Pointer).  Stop him and say hi – he’ll tell you all you could ever want to know about his dog….er, coatings, of course! 

When you’re thinking about updating your home or office with new interior or exterior paint, and second best just won’t cut it, call LIME Painting® of Milwaukee. You’ll work directly with a professional designer to create the perfect look for your home or business.  We promise that your experience with us will be easy, enjoyable and refreshing, and that the results of the work we do for you will be exactly what you had in mind.
