Christopher ReeseOwner/President


Chris has been president of Pennsylvania Coatings, founded the company in 2006 with his wife Jennifer, and has been licensed with a C-33 California license since 2007 and an A California license since 2018. Chris has 25 years of experience in paint and construction, working for paint manufacturers and selling paint on both coasts of the United States including Duron Paints (Beltsville, MD) and Frazee Paint (San Diego, CA), as well as painting, and operating as a contractor.

Chris has extensive experience in many types of commercial, architectural, decorative and industrial coatings and finishes, from his years working for paint manufacturers as well as building and leading the project management team at Pennsylvania Coatings. His diverse experience with a variety of coatings applied in different construction conditions is virtually unrivalled in the industry.  In addition, Chris has taught, applied, and even created faux and decorative painting techniques as needed, as well as applied wallcovering.

Chris studied Political Science at American University in Washington DC, but found his professional calling in collaborating with others and providing quality and beautiful finishes in the construction industry. His personal calling is to personally reach high school students who need to know about Jesus, and be a mentor they can look up to and from which they can learn about life. Chris has worked in youth ministry since 2011 serving with Younglife and Centerpoint Church (Murrieta, CA) and has spoken and shared the Word of God in front of thousands of students.   Chris and Jennifer contribute extensively to Centerpoint Church and other ministries. Chris is the proud dad of his 4 year old son Robbie.


  • “I have worked with Pennsylvania Coatings Inc. for many years and will continue to do so. Their organization is well put together, always professional and the work is of high quality. In construction we have daily if not hourly challenges, I have had very few with Penn Coatings but if I did they were always a problem solver and owned it even in times when we didn’t agree. They got it handled and we sorted it out later as to not delay the project. This is very valuable and a culture that cannot be taught it has to be natural. So between the professionalism, quality and culture, I will happily continue to use Pennsylvania Coatings in the future for all of my coatings needs.”

  • “I’ve had the pleasure working with Pennsylvania Coatings over the last 10+ yrs with nothing but exceptional results. The interactions and work product from estimating and dealing with Rob Gorney have not only helped in landing projects but have always been competitive and responsible. Their field personnel are not only timely and professional but provide an outstanding work product. Regardless of the project type, location or size, PA Coatings have always been willing and able to help. I would not hesitate recommending them on any project and look forward to continuing our relationship for many years to come.”

  • “I have had the pleasure of working with PA Coatings for over 7 years while I have been with multiple General Contractors and held multiple positions from Project Manager to Estimator. From one GC to the next, they have always provided exceptional services from the office staff to the field painters. No matter the job size, they provide the manpower as needed to get the job done and continue to execute quality work within the project’s budget and schedule. PA Coating’s office staff is very professional, but also offer a customer/client friendly approach that conveys that they truly care about the project’s needs. They are always just a phone call away and more than willing to help with any questions, concerns, or other ideas to make the project overall successful. No matter where my career in the Construction Market will take me, I know that I can trust and rely on PA Coatings to be the right company for the job!”

Pennsylvania Coatings is one of the select and unfortunately rare group of subcontractors that routinely exceeds expectations. Pennsylvania Coatings consistently shows the perseverance and integrity to complete projects despite the inevitable complications that present themselves in our industry. Additionally, your crews are always pleasant and easy to work with. You should be proud of the organization you have created. I look forward to working with your team again.”
