History of Reliable Painters
It started in 1972
Although I had found some small painting jobs—working alone—in early 1972, I had no training.
Beginning in August and continuing for five years, Hermann and his son, Gerry, gave me an apprenticeship in the painting trade. It was an extensive and diverse experience, for which I have always been grateful. Our work included commercial contracts and residential repainting. We worked on interiors and exteriors. We completed fire restoration and hardwood floor refinishing, including the painted lines for sports. I remember that we once painted an outdoor swimming pool!
By 1977, I had a solid set of painting skills and decided to move to Edmonton, Alberta where I had family.
1977… Reliable Painter
It's usually difficult building a new business, and mine was no different. Finding contacts meant lots of word-of-mouth, calling on realtors and paint retailers, etc. When I found clients I made certain that they were always completely satisfied.
1988… Reliable Painters
Although I have had some wonderful people in my employ over the years, it's been my choice—in the past 15 years—to work alone.
Reliable Painters today
I'm sure that there are many highly skilled and dedicated house painters in the Edmonton area, but none moreso than Reliable Painters.
