About The Davis Team

We’re a dynamic group of individuals who are passionate about what we do and dedicated to delivering the best results for our clients.

Asa Davis  

Founder of Davis Custom Finishes

Asa is originally from Griffin, Georgia. His father started a painting company when he was born and by the time Asa could walk he was spending time on the job with his dad. He started working with his father after school and during the summers.

After graduating, Asa founded Davis Custom Finishes, with the intention of providing premium quality painting services. In January of 2018, DCF moved to Nashville. “We provide professional service that one would expect from a large company, but with the customer service and support of a small, local business. It is our goal to provide the best value you can get.

We do most of our work through a referral base, therefore we are serious about customer satisfaction and earning your trust. We want to be able to work with you for years to come.”
