Interview with Tacoma WA owner, Chris Wright

Now that the WA location is up and running, we would like you to get to know Chris Wright, son of IL President John Wright and VP-Sales and Marketing Kathy Wright. Chris was with the IL company location for 11 years before relocating to Tacoma to build the WA location in 2016.

1) What inspired you to go to WA and start the new Paint-Right Painting location?

“More work opportunity out here.”

2) How, for painting, is WA different than IL?

“For exterior painting, no one brushes and rolls – everyone sprays. With our method of brush/roll, you have more control and apply more paint. You are not wasting materials by spraying it into the air. You need to back roll over the wood by pushing the paint into the wood, or it can lead to failing.”

3) What is the most important thing to communicate to homeowners about painting their home?

“Use professionals.”

4) What do you think separates you from the rest of the painting companies in WA?

“The painting methods used back in IL (at home) have been proven to work. We have the ability to brush and roll the house exterior in almost the same amount of time it takes to spray a house.”

5)On a personal note, what do you enjoy most about living in the WA area now?

“The ability to drive about an hour and be in the middle of the mountains and the lakes.”
