Paint-Right Painting Inc. is pleased to announce and congratulate employee Dan Wright (brother of owner John Wright) for reaching and celebrating his 35th year anniversary with the company. Dan is considered a painting contractor with Paint-Right as he bids, paints, and supervises all his own exterior painting projects during the exterior season, which runs from April through October. Dan then works with John and the rest of the family members and crew on the interior projects that are done November through March. Dan started bidding his own projects in 1994. Dan has painted many customers repeatedly over the years, and his repeat customers often just give a go-ahead to paint, even before they receive new quotes for the project. Right now, Dan has a number of exterior customers who have given the go-ahead to paint this 2018 exterior season, and Dan has not even bid the projects yet. That alone is proof of the quality work that he does.
To give you a better insight and understanding of Dan’s history, he was interviewed by Kathy Wright, V.P. Sales and Marketing, and Dan answered the following questions:
1) What do you think is your best quality, as a painting contractor for Paint-Right Painting:
“I get the job done within the timeframe that I state it will be done. I am very responsible and serious about my craft. I don’t take my craft lightly.”
2) What one thing do you most enjoy about your work?
“I did the best I could do on each job to make sure that it turns out the best it can be.”
3) What piece of advice would you give to a new painter starting out in your trade?
“Learn everything you can about your craft. You never stop learning.”
4) What do you like to do in your spare time?
5) What are you most proud of in your career?
“That my brother, John, and I have been working together, side by side, for 35 years.”
Paint-Right Painting Inc. would like to thank Dan for all his years of dedicated service, and for giving the company the excellent reputation that it has because of the quality work that he does. Following is a picture of Dan painting during a current interior commercial project for a condo association’s interior doors:

Everything in our world seems cyclical. Wait long enough and it comes back around.
Wallpaper is back in vogue. It actually has been popular for several years, but now is getting a lot of attention by the Interior Designers and magazines on decorating. Yes it is expensive, but today most everything is! You can look through magazines, look on line , and also you should consider hiring a consultant. You can call your local paint stores and ask if they offer a decorator consultant and you will be happy that you did.
Once the ball is rolling and you have ordered your paper, get the tools you need and a guide to help you through. Remember, though, the magazines show you the end result. There is a lot of work to get to that point. If you do not want to tackle the job yourself, consider hiring it out to a local decorator. You need to make sure that who you hire is experienced with the new wall coverings that are in vogue. These wall coverings are different than the ones from years ago. You need to get referrals, check the Better Business Bureau ( BBB ) on line, and also online Google Reviews. Unfortunately, there are a lot of sub standard contractors- so ” Buyer Beware”.
The most important aspect of having this work done will be the wall preparation. It is imperative that all repairs are done 1st, sanded, and primed. Then all areas to be wallpapered must be sealed/sized properly so that when you decide to remove the wall covering, it comes off . Generally, it isn’t easy. Verify with the contractor who is putting it up, or with the store that sells you the paper, that this paper will come off, and you should have that in writing from them.
You have to understand that if it’s not put on correctly, your walls can and will get damaged when removing the paper. It can cost a couple hundred to a couple thousand dollars to remove. It if is prepped properly when it is put on, and no short cuts are taken, the stripping will be acceptable, but also it still won’t be easy. That is what you have to expect when you have wallpaper. So think about this seriously if you decide to do wallpaper. Decorating trends come and go, and if you stay in your home, down the road you may decide that you do not want the wallpaper anymore.
