I've heard of Certa pulling the 50/50% thing too.

I'm glad I did a couple sub jobs for this company. I got to see their bids and actually used/revised some things for my personal use. I found I could get their big numbers and people were willing to pay it, I just sold my company on the fact I'm right there, the owner of the company, running and watching everything the paint crew does. Along with the bid came the discount, the pictures of jobs, the references, the sale of the job. This company had a separate estimator/ sales guy, a separate supervisor,etc. i just played all the roles myself and started charging their same gargantuan prices, hey it worked. Never to old to learn.

Default Not so fast

That wasn’t an endorsement, it was a simple observation. I don’t envy anyone’s success…good for them. I hope they are treating their people well and delivering a good product and service. If not, it’s going to leave a big hole in the Denver market for a lot of guys to fill. From my experience, what goes up quick, typically comes down quick. If I were in Denver, I would be riding their heels.

Denver best painters is a very subjective name. They may be Denvers fastest growing or even Denvers largest painters, but to call yourself the best is a little presumptive.

A marketing machine with a high closing rate and costs that are competitive based on an ability to purchase right. Strong,well paid leadership that manages a young work force that can work 12 hours a day without even a sore back...imagine that. If I were to build a company, this is how I would do it.
This is just a sales firm, not a PC. They sub out all their work, and I bet they also use telemarketers.

The internet...ruining painting...

PT has megabandwidth on how to wh0r3 the internet.
Then when someone posts that has done so with great success they get hammered.

As a painter who avoids the intense "sit in front of the computer all night" trying to be first on Google, I can honestly lmao at those who do.

I guess promoting business coaching and Behr paint is the accepted norm around here these days?
Personally, I want to look at current before and after pics with detailed info on materials used.


At least then we can separate the posters with cred. from those who are just here to talk.

Best post EVAR!


The fact that people need that reminder is a pathetic reality.

so, there are still NO painters making millions folks.

No Verm, flooring and shantys does not count as painting.

nothing to see here.
move along.

I know of several PC in my area that are making millions, even now.
However they are not doing it one living room at a time in a residential repaint market.
They are all Union Contractors running mega-shops.
PT isn't geared toward them. Like you said Wise, nothing to see here.
