About Us

Bill Bender Painting and Wallcovering is a professional painting and wallcovering contracting company. Bill started the business in 1978 in Columbia, CT following his graduation from the National School of Professional Paperhanging in Rutland, VT. We are now located in Windham Center.

Through the 1980’s Bill Bender Painting & Wallcovering concentrated on installing wallpaper and later added interior painting, which nowadays accounts for a good portion of our work. Recently, you may have heard or seen on TV that wallpaper is making a comeback. Textures and bold, beautiful patterns in somewhat smaller doses than in the past are adding a dimension that you just can’t get with paint. It’s not your grandmother’s wallpaper anymore!

Our company offers high quality, professional services, which include minor to major wall and ceiling repairs (both sheetrock and plaster), all phases of interior painting as well as all types of wallpaper/wallcovering removal and installation. We can also transform those outdated, tired looking stained kitchen/bath cabinets that you have grown tired of into beautiful “new“ cabinets with high quality cabinet painting; giving them new life with a bright painted finish and new hinges and hardware. All these services are carried out with equipment and techniques to keep your home or office a cleaner and
healthier place for our workers as well as your family or workers.

We are a long-standing member of the Wallcovering Installers Association (formally The National Guild of Professional Paperhangers) and the Painting & Decorating Contractors of America. Our continued membership with these organizations has allowed us to share knowledge and techniques, as well as stay abreast of the newest technology and products. In addition, we are also a member of the Chamber of Commerce, Windham Region.
Continuing education is vital to stay ahead of all the technological advances in paint and wallcovering industry. We use only the highest quality and environmentally safe products including Zero Voc Paints.
