Owner: Kenneth Dansereau Jr.

It all began at the age of 13 when my father had me help him paint a neighbor's house. Back then, we used oil paints and lots of paint thinner. That day I learned the meaning of a hard day's work! Times have changed and for the better. Most of the paints we use now are latex and are much better for the environment. The VOC (volatile organic compounds) standard has been lowered and its much easier to recycle, especially now that safe harbors has lent a helping hand! I am very passionate about helping our planet. I have two beautiful children, Averey and Briar, and I'd like to leave this planet to them even better than when I came into it. I also want to instill these beliefs and values in them.

I have nearly 15 years of professional painting experience under my belt. I have helped shape some of the biggest painting companies in Rhode Island and was a Lead Foremen at both Dennis Moffit and Two Brothers painting. These were great learning ventures for me, but now I'm ready to set the bar higher and take this industry to the next level. When you choose Happy Trees Painting, not only will you be working with the best environmentally friendly based painting company in the state, but you will be getting top notch customer service and the highest quality paint job. We intend to provide you with an experience unlike any others and one that you will remember for years to come!
