Five generations since 1886

J.E. Travis Painting, Inc. (JET) is a fifth generation commercial painting and decorating contractor that provides services primarily to the Central and South Texas regions. Work capabilities encompass all aspects of the painting and decorating trade, including: taping, floating, texturing, painting, staining, wall-covering and faux finishing. From single story to high-rise structures, experienced crews coat both interior and exterior surfaces, utilizing application methods from simple pot and brush tools to multi-gun spray rigs.


Tape and Float, Texture

J.E. Travis offers stain finishing services. We also offer custom matching by our stain specialists. We use a variety of different stain finish types including lacquer, oil, and acrylic stains from several industry-leading stain suppliers. 

In addition to being able to provide field applied finishes, we operate an in-house finishing facility that allows stain projects to run concurrently with fieldwork, saving time, and enhancing quality control.


The right coating properly applied results in a durable finish so JET uses several primer and paint technologies including:  acrylic, alkyd, marine, epoxy, and urethane in single or multi-component  form to cover a variety of interior and exterior surfaces.  Substrates like wood, GWB, CMU, concrete, and metal are common construction materials that we paint .  From weenie rollers to HVLP and airless equipment, JET crews use the right tools and coatings to provide a lasting finish.


Proper preparation is key in delivering a quality paint project.  JET crews  tape and float  GWB surfaces to approved specification (Level 1 to Level 5)  including taping for sound and fire ratings or cement board preparation behind tile as required.  We also include specialty texture coatings, per design intent, including:  blown-on orange peel, knock-down, hand-trowel, Monterrey, or specialty textured coatings.
