He is the former owner of College Works Painting (CWP) here in Washington State, working with students at the University of Washington, Seattle Pacific University, Pacific Lutheran University and, of course, Western Washington University. In 2008 he sold CWP in order to have more time to start a family and opened Paint The Town the same year. He currently lives with his wife, Ingrid, and 2 year old daughter, Angelina, in Glenhaven, with their two dogs, Lolo and Jasmine. In his spare time Troy is a volunteer fire fighter for the South Lake Whatcom Fire District 18, and enjoys outdoor activities with his family.

Q: How does your pricing compare to other paint companies?

A: The price give you will be based on a detailed assessment of YOUR needs, your budget, and the scope of the project.  We will never be the lowest bidder because we refuse to cut corners when in comes to quality of either workmanship or materials.  That said, you'd be hard pressed to find another contractor in our quality range who can beat our prices.  Because our estimates are so detailed, we pride ourselves on the fact that your price will not change once we start work unless the colors or scope of work are changed.  Our goal is to give you the best value for the dollars you spend. All of our painters are trained and supplied with the appropriate equipment to get your job done; the right way, the first time!

Q: What kind of paint do you use?

A: We use only high quality painting products from manufacturers like Parker, Sherwin Williams, Benjamin Moore, and Pittsburg. We also use Sikkens, Flood and Superdeck products for our fences, decks and other staining projects. The brand of product we use depends on customer preference and the needs each specific project.

Q: Do you have references?

A: Yes we do! Please let us know where you live so that we may supply you with a list of homes in your area that you may drive by to see our work first-hand. Reference Letters can be e-mailed to you as well upon request. Click here to see testimonials sent to us by customers.
