How long have you been in business?
I started my own business in October of 2003. Previous
to that I worked for a large local painting company
for five years.
Are you insured?
Yes, I am fully insured with over a million dollars
in worker's compensation, liability insurance and
work vechicle coverage. I carry copies of my policies
with me and I would be happy to share them with you.
What hours do you work?
My typical day begins around 7:30am and ends at 4:30pm.
However, I will let my client know the schedule for
thier specific job and if travel or other circumstances
alter this time.
Will you complete my job from start to finish
Yes. I believe every customer is equally important,
and I will make sure you are happy with the timing
of the job, as well as the quality.
When can I expect to receive an estimate?
You can expect to receive a written proposal in two
to three business days after I see the job. Customers
can tell me how they would like to receive the estimate
(phone, email, fax, mail). You are welcome to call
me at anytime with questions once you receive it.
Is paint included with the price of the proposal?
I usually include the cost of paint in the price and
this will be specified in the estimate. If the customer
wishes to purchase the needed supplies I will provide
the quantity of paint needed and an approximate cost
in the estimate. I also can recommend specific brands
and places to purchase them.
I've had bids before, and I get some prices that
are high, low and all over the place. Why?
The cost of the job is usually determined by the level
of thoroughness, attention to detail, and quality
desired. For example, it costs more to properly prepare
a surface for painting than to give it the "quick
fix". I will review, in detail, my calculations
for your project so you can make a fair comparison
with other bids. Some companies bid on the job and
then have less skilled workers complete the work,
or they do not carry full insurance, this cutting
What is the difference between a good paint job
and a bad one?
A good paint job requires an extensive knowledge of
different painting techniques and materials, and the
skill and commitment to go with it. Not cutting corners.
Preparation, preparation, preparation. And finally,
budgeting enough time to do the work properly and
making sure it is what the customer wants.
Do you have references?
Yes, I can provide references upon request and you
can also view some in the testimonials
section of this site.
