Advanced Painting and Wood Repair specializes in exterior painting, wood repair and wrought iron welding serving Southern California homeowners, homeowner associations, apartment complexes and commercial property owners & managers. Our quality and professionalism have made us an industry leader for more than 40 years.

ADVANCED Painting & Wood Repair was founded in the mid 1970’s by Allen Moser, who came to California with big dreams and a paintbrush in hand. New construction abounded, and Allen and his first crew painted numerous tracts of homes and gained an immense amount of both experience and contacts in those early years.

In 1980, ADVANCED Painting & Wood Repair acquired its first Homeowner’s Association client through U.S. Affiliated Properties. This was the beginning of what is now an over thirty-year history of serving residential community associations. One of the earliest members of Community Associations Institute (CAI), ADVANCED has played an active role with both CAI and CACM and is widely regarded as a paint industry leader.

In the early 90’s, Gerry Soneff joined forces with Allen Moser, bringing his expertise in wood and wrought iron repair in addition to painting. Together, Allen and Gerry continued to solidify ADVANCED’s reputation as a frontrunner in the industry, adding more crews, and offering more diverse services in broader trades. Over the years, the many and varied projects completed have included countless single family homes, homeowner associations, apartment units, commercial buildings & business complexes, as well as retail centers spanning the greater Southern California region and beyond.

Many of ADVANCED’s supervisors and crew members have been with the company for 20 – 30 years now, bringing with them an immense body of experience and expertise. Along with our 40-year history, comes long-standing relationships with our paint and lumber suppliers as well, affording us great value on top quality products and the most current product information.

It is our hope that ADVANCED Painting & Wood Repair can offer you the advantages of reputation, reliability, quality & value.
