With the launch of our new virtual room painter tool, we have enabled anyone searching for the perfect color to try paint colors and palettes without visiting a paint store or lifting a brush. Powered by proprietary technology and created by PPG’s award-winning developers, the tool provides a realistic color preview and is now available. Test colors faster thanks to intuitive “edge-detect” functionality, which quickly and automatically finds and maps the ends of a wall within a photo. Say "so long" to the days of using tools to draw lines or to select specific surfaces in photos to colorize them. Once you select your color choices, simply touch or click on the photo for quick digital painting. The tool also provides an edit function for exact precision.

While Ken spent most of his early career doing hands-on work, it was an opportunity to enter the sales side of the industry that led him to where he is today. “I knew the owner of a local painting company who was in need of a sales representative, and I offered to fill the position,” he recounts. “Over time, I moved up through the ranks and became his right-hand man. After he passed away, I took over ownership of the business.”

Switching up the trim in a room can have a surprisingly dramatic effect. Changing the trim color is an easy way to accommodate your evolving tastes over time without making permanent changes. But trim can also bring a room’s look down if it’s painted sloppily. Your Encore Painting team employs a tactical strategy when painting trim! We guarantee a clean, precise finish. Not sure what color will elevate your trim to the next level? Our experienced staff will be happy to help with your selection.
After unpackaging the product I immediately decided to try with water here are my results:
Marchesi recommends speeding up the process by “forced drying,” which means having a fan blow on the painted walls to dry them faster. Depending on the amount of “forced air” you have blowing on the wall, you could possibly do a second coat after just two hours.

Today, more than 35 years after founding The Painting Pros, Cleve says that while he no longer performs the physical work, he finds equivalent satisfaction from handling the operational side of things. “I enjoy running and developing the business, from the sales and marketing aspects to interacting with customers and making sure they’re satisfied.”
• INTERIOR/EXTERIOR • RESIDENTIAL PAINTING • COMMERCIAL PAINTING • WATERPROOFING
Outside of work, Cleve’s primary hobby is playing and performing music, an interest he’s pursued since his youth. “My wife and I play in a local rock band called Rusty—I’m the guitarist and she’s the singer,” he says. “Oddly enough, almost every member of the band is a past customer of mine. While on the job, I’d see a drum set or keyboard and we’d start talking. Next thing you know, we’re jamming together!” In addition to playing music, Cleve enjoys videography; photography; and spending time with his son, Daniel, and his three grandchildren.
Even if you go it alone, specialize to keep your initial investment low. If you do only interior painting, for example, you might get by with one ladder, a few brushes, rollers, basic hand tools and such, for an investment of less than $300. Again, you can add to your tools as you need to (every job is a bit different), and parlay profits into the equipment necessary for exterior painting or working on large commercial properties.
