Before starting the business in 1990, Dave worked with a local painting company for a few years, but he has always had a knack for painting since he painted with his Dad when he was 12 years old. Dave had an opportunity and the capital to start his own business from scratch in 1990 with zero customers, so he could work his own hours and see his boys participate in sports. Today, Dave serves over 500 homeowners, real estate agents, builders, remodelers, decorators, property owners and other small businesses in the Indianapolis Metropolitan area.
