I am Roy Sealy, the owner of The Pros-Painting. Someone recently asked me “What has happened to the painting profession?” I believe what they meant “Why has the quality of work declined while prices are increasing?”
Since we have been serving the Huntsville area for over 40 years, we have observed cycles of growth and decline. Invariably, when the Huntsville area is in a growth cycle, there is an influx “painter wanna be” workers. They perceive painting as a way to make quick money without having to take on the expenses of running a real business. They are not properly insured, bonded or licensed. They use inferior paints. Their employees have no benefits. They don’t depend on their customer base for repeat business or 5-star referrals.
Who Can you Trust?
The reason we continue working in this environment is because there are enough people who value the quality we add to the painting experience to make it possible to do quality work at a fair price. If price is the only way a person measures the value of home painting then we want to suggest you consider the following:
- According to “This Old House” The average cost to paint the exterior of a 2,000-square-foot home is $5,200, but that number rises up to $12,000 for a three-story house. Regardless of the number of stories or the square footage of your home, average outdoor painting prices break down to $1–$4 per square foot.
- Working with a company that has a 40 plus year reputation to protect adds peace of mind to your painting requirements list.
- Painting quality techniques, such as adding pigments to white paint to improve coverage, are beyond the scope of new painters.
More so in painting than in many other professions, you get what you pay for. Don’t settle for less. Call us.
