Steve Bulthuis is a graduate of Morraine Valley Community College. Having worked for both brick layers and plasterers, Steve found his niche in painting, and founded his own company in 1975. The company has grown from a one man shop into a two crew year-round company servicing both commercial and residential clients, in interior and exterior painting, from Beverly to Joliet.

Over 35 years, his skills and design talent have progressed with the industry. Today Strait-Line is proud to help hundreds of clients with their design and re-decorating projects each year, with each job being individually tailored to the client's needs, and all paint being custom tinted to client specifications.
Jolyn Bulthuis is a graduate of Valparaiso University, and an artist since age 10. Within Strait-Line, Jolyn has served as office manager for 20 years. As the design field grew with the need for artwork, murals, and faux finishes developing, so did Jolyn's contribution to the design side of the business. Strait-Line can accommodate any artistic need, from small decorative artwork to two-story commercial murals. Jolyn has also developed her expertise in the gamut of faux finishing, as well as the more contemporary need for architectural finishes. All faux finishes are not created equal. While you can view most work via portfolio, most often our samples are done to your specifications in your home. The end product being something you can be proud of for years to come.

Quality is never an accident. It is always the result of highly intensive, sincere effort, intelligent direction, and skillful execution. It represents the wise choice of many alternatives.
