Bethesda, Md. – Ecclesiastical Studio and Son was recently named by American Painting Contractor (APC) Magazine as the winner of the 2018 TOP JOB Valley Falls, Kansas. TOP JOB honors a single painting company in a city or town for its superior work and commitment to excellence in the painting industry.
