So why hire me over other painters? Chances are if you call me it’s because I was recommended to you by a customer or you read about me on a Palisades neighborhood website.
I started my company as Applied Painting in 1979 in a small town in Illinois. In time my brainy partner finished college and went to work as a design engineer, and I continued on with the company. I changed it to Palisades Painting after moving to Los Angeles in 2006. (There are seven other Applied Paintings in the LA area!)
A Bit Of A Boutique Company
Over the years I’ve had crews but now I’m just working by myself. PPC is something of a niche company therefore, even though I often paint entire exteriors. Some people also like the idea of just one person on their property at a time. Sometimes the job takes longer but you get the advantage of my 40+ years of expertise and experience.
I Can Save You Money
I offer my customers a “no fault, no surprises” deal. To keep things simple I will give you an estimate where the only real variable is the labor cost. If I can get you materials with a contractor’s discount, I will pass those savings on to you.
Secondly I will estimate how much paint you’ll need, then only charge you for what is actually used to the nearest gallon. If I can get by with less I’ll pass that savings on to you.
Thirdly, I don’t get legalistic and petty about the contract. If there is some little extra you would like me to do, I’m happy to do it within reason. Only clear-cut extra work entail extra charges and are agreed upon beforehand, sometimes as little as $25 an hour.
I Value My Reputation
I do a lot of repeat business because my clients like my work. In fact, if you have other work like minor repairs or maintenance, call me first before anyone else. If I can handle the task, I can probably save you money in the process. Not surprisingly, I’d rather stay busy than spend my time advertising!
So call Don right away!
