About Us


Greco Linden Hills Painting & Wallcovering Company was founded in 1970 in  the Linden Hills neighborhood of Minneapolis, a quarter mile west of Lake Harriet, and a few houses from Linden Hills Park. Jim Triantafilou and his family emigrated from Greece with the work ethic and the vision of developing a high quality local painting company that would be second to  none in the Twin Cities. Greco Linden Hills Painting and Wallcovering Company is one of the few truly top of the line, local family owned, owner-operated painting companies. Steve, the working owner, and the two other painters have a combined 55 years of experience. We continue to proudly serve our founding Linden Hills, Minneapolis, adjacent classic Edina, as well the rest of the metro area as our schedule permits.
