What education and/or training do you have that relates to your work?
It's an ever changing field. There are new regulations and products to learn about. There is always something new to know. Aside from that I have to stay ahead on technology and marketing changes to make sure I am better able to serve my clients.
How did you get started doing this type of work?
I got involved in painting at a very young age. I used to visit job sites with my dad. When I was 16, I would help out at jobs during spring and summer breaks. Since then I've become more involved in the business and I have loved it since.
What types of customers have you worked with?
Interior and exterior painting are the bulk of our work. The majority of the work we do are exterior residential projects between March and November. It's a great time to get your exterior done.
What advice would you give a customer looking to hire a provider in your area of work?
Ask questions, and ask for references. References are the next best thing to a friend to friend referral. They will help you get a feel for who the contractor is and the kind of service they provide before you even hire them!
