Philosophy

A SYSTEM FOR THE PURSUIT OF PROFESSIONAL PAINTING

 

1) RESPECT

I UNDERSTAND THE VALUE OF YOUR PROJECT, THE VALUE OF YOUR TIME, NEEDS AND THE IMPORTANCE OF COMMUNICATING WITH YOU AS A CUSTOMER AND FRIEND.

2) ACCOUNTABILITY

I WILL NOT RECOMMEND PRODUCTS AND SERVICES UNTIL I COMPLETELY UNDERSTAND YOUR PROJECT.

3) COMMUNICATIONS

I UNDERSTAND THAT COMMUNICATIONS CAN BE DIFFICULT AND MAY LEAD TO MISUNDERSTANDINGS. I WILL ACTIVELY LISTEN TO YOU TO ESTABLISH YOUR GOALS AND OBJECTIVES.

4) RESOLUTION

I UNDERSTAND THERE ARE OCCASIONS WHEN RESULTS WILL NOT MEET EXPECTAIONS AND AM READY TO WORK FOR THE BEST POSSIBLE RESULT.

5) KNOWLEDGE

I PROMISE CONTINUED PURSUIT TO STAY CURRENT ON THE LASTEST TECHNOLOGY AND PRODUCTS SO IT MAY BE APPLIED TO YOUR PROJECT.

6) VALUES

I WILL PROVIDE GOOD FAITH ESTIMATES, SOMETIMES THEY CHANGE BUT NOT OFTEN, IF SO CHANGE ORDERS WILL BE GIVEN. I WILL WORK TO GIVE FAIR PRICES WITHOUT MARK UP ON MATERIALS.

AS I ENTER THE 20TH YEAR USING BENJAMIN MOORE PAINTS, THIS PAST YEAR HAS RESULTED AGAIN IN SUCCESS AND CHALLENGES IN MANY AREAS INCLUDING THE 6 ITEMS FOR PROFESSIONAL VALUES LISTED ABOVE.

EVERY YEAR A CRAFTSMAN PAINTER LEARNS NEW TECHNIQUES, METHODS AND USE OF NEW PAINTS. CURRENTLY THE INTERIOR WORK ON A 45 YR OLD HOME WITH INTERIOR DOORS AND WALLS LONG OVERDUE FOR PAINT THE RESULT IS A REVIEW IN THE BEST LATEX ENAMELS FOR CABINETS AND EGGSHELL FINISHES FOR WALLS. THERE ARE MORE SMALL 6IN ROLLERS THAN EVER TO STAY FAMILIAR WITH FOR EXAMPLE. ORGANIZED WORK HABITS INCLUDING ORDER AND SEQUENCE OF PREP PRIMING AND FINISH WORK IS SO IMPORTANT.

EXTERIOR WORK THIS PAST YEAR MEANT THE USE OF 32 FT LADDERS SAFELY USED WITH VARIOUS 12 TO 28 FT EXTENSION LADDERS. A DIFFERENT PAINTING EXPERIENCE ENTIRELY .

I DO NOT TAKE FOR GRANTED THE PROMISE FOR HIGH QUALITY WORK FOR BOTH.

INTERIOR AND EXTERIOR WORK. THE RESPECT FOR DIFFERENT PREP AND APPLICATION METHODS IS SIGNIFICANT. MY GOAL IS THAT MANY YEARS LATER CLIENTS SEE DURABLITY – WHY PAINT AGAIN WHEN MULTIPLE COATS MEAN A 2ND PAINT JOB IS NOT REQUIRED FOR MANY YEARS. A 5 OR 6 YR EXTERIOR PAINT JOB ISNT GOOD ENOUGH – WHY NOT SPRAY AND BRUSH ANOTHER 2 OR 3 COATS TO INSURE SUPERIOR PAINTING.

NOTHING MEANS AS MUCH AS THE ABILITY TO OFFER TESTIMONIALS FROM THE PAST 3 TO 6 YRS AND THE APPEARANCE OF HOMES I’VE PAINTED 18 OR 20 YRS AGO.

PLEASE LET ME TELL YOU MORE ABOUT BENJAMIN MOORE FINISHES!
