Riehle Decorating was started in 1939 when Frederick Riehle painted his first church. He soon trained his son, Frederick Jr., the father of Darrell and Jerry. Darrell and Jerry Riehle have been decorating churches since they were teenagers.

Darrell and Jerry Riehle are now joined in the business by Dennis, who is Darrell’s son, and Ron, who is Jerry’s son.

What our clients have to say

“The first week of June 2019 Riehle Decorating began their contracted work to paint and decorate the inside of St. John’s Catholic Church in Independence, Iowa. By the last week of September 2019, the job was completed and phenomenally so.  From the repairing of the walls, the scraping, the painting, the stencil decorating, gold leaf application, ordering all of the materials, and cleanup; the Riehle’s not only performed admirably, but offered suggestions, and helpful information regarding other aspects of our overall renovation project when asked for consultation of their valued experiential opinion…..   ”                 Fr. David Beckman

P.S. They are the only people I know that probably spend more time in church than the pope.
