I am a new painting contractor in Red Deer, Canada. I have been painting for aprox. 8 years, and have done everything from commercial, to residential to industrial. I finally took the plunge and opened my own company with my dad who also has alot of painting experience. We left the big city where I'm from and moved into an up and coming boom town. I find people out in the country and small towns are more reasonable to deal with, and there is less fearce competition. One day however, if I can make it here my goal is to move myself and the company back home.
