Hello everybody. My name is Kevin. I am the owner of "Henry's Custom Painting and Pressure Washing". I am located in central Alabama. I am 45 years old and have been painting for 25 years. I am a second generation painter. I have one other person that works with me. I love my job, I look forward to going to work every day. I specialize in res. repaints. I love my customers One hundred percent of my business is repeat customers or word of mouth. I am an old school painter. I love to brush and roll. I own a spray gun but seldom use it. In 25 years of painting I have drawn up one contract, every thing else has been a hand shake. There is a lot of good info on this site. I look forard to talking to y'all!

Welcome Kevin.

Why is the name of your company "Henry"? Why not Kevin?

Default Ha ha!! Great question

The name was "Kevin's Custom Painting and Pressure Washing". But seven years ago my brother went to work for me full time. I wanted to include him in the name some way so I changed the name. A lot of people down here call us "them Henry boys"

I have a customer down here from Boston. Love the way she talks. She thinks I talk funny, and she's right!

Thanks RCP. We took a road trip out west in 2010. We went through part of Utah. It was beautiful. We stayed over night in Richfield. I want to go visit again.

Hey Workaholic. Most of our work is res. repaints. Once in a blue moon we will do some new work but not very often. It's been about six years or so since I didn't have anything to do. I think that lasted about three days or so. I have inside work thru Jan. I have three outside jobs to do but I won't try to do those to at least sometime in Feb. I am very blessed to work for such great people.

That sounds like a good deal. January is pretty slow for me and by mid to late Feb it gets back into the swing of things.

Sounds like a good outfit.

Glad you joined.
