My Credentials

I started painting professionally since the 70s I did my apprenticeship with residential custom repainting, I then gained my journeyman’s card. I was certified with the Paint Quality Institute for trouble shooting residential applications of finishes. Through the years I’ve worked with many designers and interior decorators performing custom interior finishes. I also been involved in real estate flipping homes for myself and investors.

I am very sensitive of the environment of your home along with cultural and or religious values.

  • Shoe & boot covers will be worn or shoes that are only used for working on the job site.
  • Once I start your job, I won’t start another until your job is complete. My hours are Monday thru Friday between 7 to 9 AM until the end of day 3:30 to 5:30 PM a full 8-hour day, until your work is complete except for sickness, personal or holidays.
  • Sometimes we work late if there is only a little work to finish, or sometimes a Saturday to finish-up a job.
  • Start date, must be kept a little flexible, if the homeowner on the preceding job wants something extra done, I normally stay until it’s complete, such as extra rooms, change orders, etc. and I’ll do the same for you.
  • I usually have 2 men (each one must pass a competency exam before they can start work) sometimes a 3rd (to help prepare rooms for the painters and cleanup) plus myself (administrative).
  • Once I start your job prices will not fluctuate. The price I give you is the price you pay, except for change orders (additional work added to the contract). Prices given are subject to change based on my availability.
