Choosing a Painter



History of Reliable Painters

It started in 1972
I started my career as a house painter on August 4, 1972 under the employ of a German master painter, Hermann Brummer. I was just 18 years of age. Hermann was an independent painting contractor in the city of Penticton, British Columbia.

Although I had found some small painting jobs—working alone—in early 1972, I had no formal training.

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 restorations 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
I registered the name, "Reliable Painter," in Edmonton on November 25, 1977 and began the task of finding clients and building a reputation for dependability and quality workmanship.

It's usually difficult building a new business, and mine was no different. When I found clients I made certain that they were always completely satisfied.

1988… Reliable Painters
I had hired a few employees previously, but in 1988 I took on my first full time painter, so I changed the name of my company to "Reliable Painters," which it has remained to this day.

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
The 45+ years since I first picked up a paint brush have flown by. Reliable Painters is a name that is trusted by home owners in Edmonton and the surrounding area. In over 40 years of continuous business, there has never been a complaint to the Better Business Bureau in regards to my services.

There are many highly skilled and dedicated house painters in the Edmonton area, but none moreso than Reliable Painters.
