Theresa DeRoo

Paintwork Detroit started as a “one-man show” in 2011 with Theresa DeRoo stepping into the growing needs of Detroit’s booming comeback. Working 6 years at The Detroit Science Center’s Exhibit Shop, she finished and refurbished hundreds of exhibits for the Science Center and other Metro-Detroit businesses.

The constant physical and creative demand of Exhibits honed and expanded Theresa’s finishing skills to ‘Museum quality’. Working with designers and highly-skilled craftsmen on multi-million dollar projects placed her in a unique professional position with a razor-thin error margin.

This wealth of experience translates well to the needs and wants of Paintwork Detroit’s clients. Listening is key to a successful job. Browse our galleries. We hope they will interest and inspire you on your next project with us.

Theresa is ethical, honest, and doesn't consider a job done until you're pleased with the end result. Those qualities are worth their weight in gold when dealing with contractors. Theresa has a holistic and artistic approach to spaces, paying close attention to who will be using them and how they want to feel while in the space. I will never hire any other painter again!

I cannot express enough gratification to Theresa DeRoo for the work she has completed in my home over the last year. She has accomplished a complete re-do of our main bathroom; tiling of our guest bathroom and a myriad of other projects in almost every other room of my house. We collaborated together in deciding what was best for the space allotted, and her creative ideas seemed endless. Her specific attention to every minute detail demonstrates not only her passion, but her complete dedication to her work. I would highly recommend Theresa to anyone wanting something special.

I have known Theresa Deroo for 25+ years, I consider her to have very high personal and family values. Having recently employed her on a professional level, I was very pleased with her work, creative input, and in particular the highest level of trust that I could give her a key to access the office after hours.

Theresa DeRoo and her associate did a fantastic job working on the remodeling of our bathroom. Every step of the way, as we were comfortable, Theresa spoke with us about the materials, the time-frame, the cost of the job, and making sure that we were up to date and continually in agreement with the efforts. The work was done timely and carefully. This was shown in the detail and the professional outcome of the product. Our bathroom looks really, really great!

Theresa DeRoo and Paintwork Detroit transformed our office space at Forest Post Productions. Our job required wall repairs, texturing to be added, and finally, painting. The final product looks amazing. Theresa counseled us on the best approach for our space, stuck to the schedule she provided, and completed the entire job as promised. Given Paintwork Detroit's professionalism and creativity, we would recommend this company to our family and clients.

Theresa listened to my needs and immediately had great and creative ideas. She helped me pick out my colors. I would have had a hideous room had she not guided me on color tones. Theresa did all of this work in a timely fashion. When the room was done I needed help picking out carpet and window blinds. Her ideas again saved me from expensive and hideous mistakes. My room is so colorful and color-coordinated. Theresa is welcomed in my home to do any work she sees her self fit to do. She is fabulous.
