Let's get that puppy caulked and painted.you are awesome
It's no fun looking for a painter to work inside your house.
Who do you trust? How do you make the right decision? There's so many painters in Portland, and you only need one. How can you be sure you're...
First of all, let me clarify:
Portland Painters is the name of the website.
Mark's Painting Service is the name of my business.
With that out of the way, let me say that I probably won't be painting your house.
From experience, I know that only about ONE out of ten people who come to this website will end up using me to beautify their home or office.
So the odds are against you. There's a ninety percent chance you'll miss out. However, here's a few things you can do to tip the scales in your favor. (And I want you to know, I'll be pulling for you!)
Ask yourself the following questions:
Am I looking to create a warmer, more nurturing environment?
Would I like to bring some more good vibes to the place?
Will I appreciate sharp, crisp, cut-in lines?
Do I want more beauty in my life?
If you mostly answered 'yes' to the above questions, congratulations! You just qualified yourself. Things are looking up.
Your next step is to call me, and see if I can fit you in, within your time schedule, and within mine.
If it's meant to happen, then it probably will.
I know how eager and excited you are at the prospect of actually communicating directly with me, but please read the following before you call:
At the moment, I'm pretty much a one-man show. Now, that's good news, and bad news.
The good news is, I will personally be working to beautify your home or office. I don't sub out the work and I won't have a sketchy crew of half-competent painters coming to your place.
It's all me.
You get the wily veteran who's pretty much see it all and done it all. Well, in the painting world, anyway.
I take great pride in my work, and you're lucky to have me. Plus, I'm humble.
Another bonus is that you're getting me at a great rate. I don't have to add in 'profit' to my estimates, I can just work for 'wages'. Which is something all those big shot companies with their fancy websites and their overpaid managers driving around in those shiny new pickup trucks, can't offer.
Plus, remember, I'm awfully humble. Don't ever forget that.
Another bonus: you've got the owner on site. I can't hide! I have to be responsible; and instantly responsive to whatever comes up.
Nobody cares like an owner cares.
And since I'm the new kid on the block, I have to try harder. I'll do my darndest to make a good impression!
So to sum up the good news: you're getting the owner of the company who's got many years of humbling experience, coming over to do the actual work. All at a price you can afford.
Now please brace yourself for the bad news.
Number one, I can't do huge jobs at the moment. Large, exterior, two-story houses... complete interiors of big homes... commercial jobs... I just don't have the manpower (or ladypower!) at this time.
Plus, with my dazzling combination of charm, talent and humility, I may get booked up fast. Sorry. What can I say? You shoulda called last week when you were first thinking about it.
Finally, since it's just me doing this, I've decided to limit my range. Ideally, to the east side of Portland. Or, maybe to Gresham. Or down south to the hinterlands of Clackamas County.
I probably won't be traveling west of downtown... such as Hillsboro or Beaverton. Traffic sucks too much over there. Once I get a crew together, maybe I'll send their sorry asses over to that area. In the meantime, you'll have to either wait til my crew is assembled, bribe me with a little extra cash, or call one of my inferior competitors.
The bottom line: If you live on the east or south side of town, and you have a smaller job that needs a master's touch, then you may be in luck!
Oh, and did I tell you how humble I am?
