The seeds for Elevation Finishes were planted many years ago in northern Michigan, where David Rairick began working with his father at the age of 10. David learned the art of wood finishing, working on stain packages for “Two Lakes” custom homes. At first it was a far less than glamorous job as David literally sanded miles of baseboard and trim work.
Nearly 5 years later, David and his family moved to the western slope of Colorado where he continued working in the family business. David was introduced to antique furniture restoration, and cabinet finishing. David had the opportunity to work on the “Janet Bond” project, a code name for the Tom Cruise & Nicole Kidman vacation home in Telluride, CO. This is where David’s inspiration was initially sparked.
In 1996, upon hearing news of his ailing grandfather, David and his family moved to Florida. This was an extremely challenging time for David as he grew to love Colorado and left behind many close friends. David made a vow to himself to one day return to his favorite place, “The Colorado Rocky Mountains”.
Once in Florida, David worked primarily as a painting contractor learning the many facets of preparations, applications, and the chemistry of paint coatings.
Shortly after marrying the love of his life, Jessica, David was fortunate to secure a number of projects working among the most opulent homes in Naples, Florida. During this time David was introduced to an amazing new art…”The Art of Decorative Finishing”. David was quickly enamored by the limitless, creative possibilities.
For the next few years David dedicated himself fully to mastering these decorative arts, he established a successful company in the heart of Naples, Florida working along side many expert interior designers, applying world class finishes in the most beautiful homes in the country. David has won many design awards and in 2007, became an honored master in the field of decorative arts.
As David experienced great success, he desired to share his expertise and success with others who wanted to learn about decorative finishing. David built and established a training facility where he taught the art and business of luxury decorative finishing for a number of years. David has traveled both domestically and internationally as a guest instructor, teaching thousands of students. David has been commissioned by many celebrities, professional athletes, and members of royal families to lend his unique design and craftsmanship to their personal homes and palaces.
As David and his wife Jessica expanded their family to five, adding three sons, David decided to slow down a bit and endeavored into manufacturing his own specialty paint coatings.
David and his team at 360 Coatings developed the award winning product Remarkable™. Remarkablecoating.com
In 2014, David and his family realized his dream and returned home to the majestic Colorado Rocky Mountains.
As 360 Coatings continues to scale David and Jessica launched Elevation Finishes, LLC. A full service decorative finishing company with a focus on Kitchen and Bath remodels. David brings a wealth of knowledge and experience to his clients offering exceptional color theory, design and the resources he garnered during his travels across the globe, as an instructor, and project designer. David has teamed up with several local industry professionals who provide exceptional service and pride themselves equally in their craftsmanship.
From our family to yours, we know how important your home is, and so we treat it like our own.

Enough about business…
On the more personal side of things David, with his sons are serious outdoorsman, and avid fly fisherman. They enjoy frequent camping trips across the state, mainly in search of beautiful rivers that hold large trout. Two of David’s favorite rivers are the Fryingpan River, and the Taylor River. Pictured below…David with sons Cole, Bryce, & Weston .
Jessica is starting to become quite the fly fisherman herself. Jess grew up on the sunny beaches of Florida, so this Colorado lifestyle is quite an adjustment for her, but an adjustment she is loving. Jess graduated from Samford University in Birmingham Alabama with an education degree. Jess taught elementary classes for a number of years and was a Golden Apple finalist in consecutive years. Today, Jessica focuses on raising her boys along side David, where she assists in the day to day operations of Elevation. Jessica has a natural eye for color and her acumen for interior design is exceptional. David attributes much of his success to Jessica’s color sense and she remains his go to color consultant to this day.“
