What is Pro for a day you ask? Simply put, is a time and material situation we provide our customers. We like to think of it as a unique system we originally came up with to serve two purposes. The first purpose was to enable people to get more work done at an affordable rate. My theory was you could hire me to paint all the wood work in your home with a fresh coat, when sometimes it really didn’t need that. In fact one of our professional painters for a day (hence the term Pro for a day) could often come in, and methodically check all the woodwork in the home. We would start in one room and work our way through, checking the caulking and redoing as needed, repainting small areas of scuff marks, sometimes the entire board, sometimes the entire stairway where the skirts and risers often become separated and scuffed. This doesn’t work all the time, but in certain situations it can save the customer a lot of money. It would enable you to get work done, it would provide us with the job that we might not have had, so we view it as a win-win situation for everyone.
The program is very flexible. Some people are hesitant at first as it’s a great uncertainty on how much work can be done, and how our work ethics will be in a situation like this. Once people have seen us work, the job usually expands when they realize how quick and efficient we are. This is all we do every week, every month, and every year. We will do far more work in a day than a DIY or handyman would accomplish in the same time, for the simple reason that it is repetition for us, day in and day out. We have used this program to paint entire homes, many apartments, condo complexes; even commercial businesses enjoy hiring us for this program. Over the years the program has helped so many people. One of my favorite stories is of the wife who started painting their bathroom only to call us early in the morning in distress. We were able to rush over and complete the painting for her, before her husband came home allowing her to take full credit! There are also people who hire us to come in after other painters have completed the project just to go over the final details and clean everything up. This happens more than you would expect! It is simpler this way and it avoids conflict on their end. Whatever your problem, your needs, or you wish list contains, we are here for you to make your life simpler. Without our customers we would not be here. We’re always trying to think out of the box to help provide you with the best possible service we can, with as many options to fit your budget and needs.
As I mentioned the PRO FOR A DAY program was designed with two purposes in mind, I know I focused mostly on interior painting, but the program works equally as well on the exterior. Many of our customers will call us back years after we have completed the project to simply go around and check the house using the Pro for a day program. We will check to make sure the putty and caulking is intact. We will check for any wood damage from either woodpeckers or rot. We can hand clean areas as needed and repaint as needed to help extend the life of your paint job. So instead of repainting your entire home every 7 to 10 years, we can often extend it even further with just a little preventive maintenance and attention to detail during our touch up. The second way it can be used is for what I consider an extended warranty program. Naturally if the job requires work not covered under the Pro for a day program such as a complete power wash, a deck restoration, or even a day or two of carpentry, it can all be done separate from “PRO FOR A DAY”, prior as a separate job. While our “PRO FOR A DAY” program does not include carpentry, power washing, or gutter cleaning. But it does cover virtually all aspects of painting and sometimes even minor handyman tasks when possible. Often time’s customers will email a list of what they would like done. Other times I will come out to review the project and provide options. Please contact the office today to find out more about our innovative program, and how it could benefit you!
