Back History

At Top Dog Painting & Remodeling, we have a rich history rooted in passion, hard work, and a commitment to customer satisfaction. Founded by John McVay, our owner and operator, our journey began in Pittsburgh, PA, where John honed his skills in the construction industry. In 2014, John and his family made the decision to relocate to the vibrant and growing community of Lake Norman, North Carolina, after falling in love with the area during visits to his in-laws.

Drawing inspiration from the best in the business back in Pittsburgh, John’s expertise and dedication to delivering exactly what the customer wants, at an affordable price, flourished. Over the course of a decade, he learned from successful contractors, gaining invaluable knowledge and experience. Fueled by his reliable work ethic, trustworthiness, and affordability, word of mouth quickly spread, leading John to establish his own business.

Since its inception, Top Dog has thrived on personal connections with each customer. We believe in sitting down with you, understanding your vision, timeline, and budget. By eliminating sub-contractors and surprise costs, we ensure transparency and maintain our commitment to your satisfaction. This approach has earned us a strong reputation within the community and continues to drive our growth in North Carolina.

Present Day

Today, Top Dog Painting & Remodeling stands as a small, family-owned and operated company, proudly based in the beautiful town of Mooresville, NC. With over 25 years of experience, we have established ourselves as leaders in the industry. Our core values remain unchanged: clean and reliable work that always stays within budget.

As a smaller company, we take pride in our reputation and our ability to offer competitive prices. We understand the value of your hard-earned dollars, and we strive to provide exceptional quality without breaking the bank. Our commitment to project completion timeframes, as agreed upon with you, sets us apart. We believe that a job is not done until you are completely satisfied with the results.

Beyond our work, we are proud members of the local community. When John is not busy creating new and exciting spaces for businesses and homes, you can find him enjoying the serenity of Lake Norman while fishing and boating. He cherishes spending time with his wife and daughter in one of the many local parks, and of course, playing ball with his loyal companion and Top Dog, Chipper. By choosing Top Dog Painting & Remodeling, you can take pride in the fact that your investment stays local and supports our community.
