Local Painters - Appleton, WI

River View Painting Company, LLC was started in January 2017, but the story truly begins in 2012. At that time, I was on full disability and had no intentions on ever working again.

However, that same year, I became a Christian and put my faith in Jesus, which changed my life significantly. I also decided to trust God as I started the long, difficult journey back into the workforce. It wasn't easy, and many people were not supportive, but Jesus has never let me down.

I started a year-long woodworking course at FVTC in Oshkosh with hopes that it would lead me to a career in furniture making. But due to my continuing disability, I came to realize that I wasn't the best candidate for working on saws. I understood, but this was rather discouraging to my new desire to go back to work. But again, God didn't let me down. A friend of mine started to teach me how to be an entrepreneur. In 2013, Benjamin Czap Services was created. I offered services including lawn mowing, snow removal, painting, carpet removal and assist to contractors (ie. picking up shingles and other grunt work). My first business, a self proprietorship just to help get me, helping, learning, working and earning again! I worked with the Social Security Department through a program called "Ticket to Work". It was a great help!

After I was re-married in 2015 and we learned the great news that we were expecting a child, we decided it was time for me to apply for a job as a full-time painter. Painting was a new joy to me but I needed to learn and I needed a more steady income. After interviewing, I was told I was not the best candidate because of safety concerns with my continuing disability. I cried... I felt crushed, but knew that God still did not fail me. So I prayed and asked God to give me opportunities and teach me to be a painter. Thus became the start of River View Painting Company, LLC. I named it in honor of God and my appreciation for the Fox Valley where I now call home.

I grew in my painting knowledge, ability and quality and hired our first employee (Austin) in July 2017. He is now a full-time painter and has truly grown in skill and character. Recently, I was also able to stop receiving Social Security Disability as well. As we have grown as a company, we have expanded to serving clients in Neenah, Menasha and Appleton, we were also given the opportunity to move into a larger facility in Appleton.
