What is your Mission? “Our mission is pretty simple, because we find it is the simple things that go a long way! ‘Quality work, honest people, that’s how we roll’ is a saying that each of our employees knows and practices each day. It is a saying that sums up the mission in which JK Paint was founded upon – ‘be the friendliest and most honest painters around, use high quality paints and paint products, and be the easiest painting contractors to work with by providing clear and friendly communication and a detailed scope of work.'”
How Does Your Business/Product/Service Stand Out In The Industry? JK Paint is a full service residential and commercial painting company. We employ multiple crews, allowing us the flexibility to work on projects of all size – from single family homes to large commercial buildings. In addition to the painting services, we offer siding repairs and replacement, lead paint removal, dry-rot repairs, light remodels, and many other services related to maintaining or improving your home or business.
We separate ourselves from others as a painting contractor who couples meticulous craftsmanship and attention to detail with top-notch customer service and professionalism.
Do You Have Any Stories To Share About Customers’ Reactions to Your Business/Product/Service? Our customers are our best marketing secret! Everyone on the JK Paint team understands there is nothing more valuable to their future and the future of JK Paint & Contracting than completing a project and having happy customers that will feel confident referring us to their family and friends. We receive reviews such as this, ” As a designer, a good painting contractor is paramount to my business. I hired JK Paint and Contracting for the first time in December 2018 and was not disappointed. The job they did was fantastic, and they were professional, efficient and courteous throughout the process. I have hired many qualified painters in he Portland Metro Area over the years, but none have paid as much attention to detail and worked as hard to meet my expectations as JK Paint. Grateful to have found them!” And we realize we are doing something right!
Are There Any Misconceptions About Your Business? A common misconception is that the weather has to be 80 degrees and sunny in order to paint the exterior of your home, and that is not the case. In the winter months, so long as the conditions are right, painting exteriors can be just as successful and you will probably get yourself a better deal.
Please Share Any Hurdles/Challenges/Funny Stories Involved In Operating/Starting Your Business. When JK Paint was first starting, Joe ran the business out of his Toyota Corolla that had a broken driver’s side door handle. He would show up to do a bid and have to roll the window down and reach out the window in order to open the door! When he earned the job, he would have to borrow a friend’s truck to get the ladders to the site. If his friend’s truck was not available he used his trusty Corolla and strapped the ladders or needed supplies to the roof with ropes running through the windows. Luckily his sales skills and quality paint jobs spoke for themselves and the JK Paint team will not have to roll up with the ladders on their Corollas any more.
