Our History

Rocky Mountain Prestain began factory finishing in 1986. Back then, Tim Armitage trailblazed the industry by designing machinery and procedures while overseeing operations. Fifteen years later, Tim acquired ownership of the company and rebuilt Rocky Mountain Prestain with a new vision to offer his factory painting service throughout the Rocky Mountain region. Since 1999, the company has steadily grown from a handful of faith-filled employees to a prominent player in the preferred prefinishing marketplace. We remain Colorado’s only factory finisher; specializing in applying commercial coatings to all kinds of building products. Today, our work can be found across the Colorado plains, in the Mile High City and throughout the great Rocky Mountain region. As we celebrate 20 years in business, the Armitage family remains committed to value, quality, and our customers’ complete satisfaction.


The mission of our company is to provide a reliable source for custom factory finishing. Our aim is to allow our customers to build their dream projects while still benefiting from the character, durability, and professionalism of the factory painting facility. We specialize in custom coloring, allowing you to apply virtually any color to any building material you are working on. We have assembled a production floor complete with the machinery needed to accommodate the finishing needs of every project. Our philosophy is straightforward. We are committed to offering the best service, the highest quality, the quickest turns, and to do so at a value.
