From Blah To Beautiful

From Transmissions to Home Décor

April 28, 2008 // // (Pinehurst, NC)---It seems everyone has a home improvement nightmare. Whether it was the driveway paver that only did half the job or the landscaper who mowed a beautiful garden into mulch, each instance serves as a cautionary tale of what happens when the work is left to someone else. The do-it-yourself approach is also appealing, but who really has the time?

Laurie Lunsford has heard the horror stories and understands that not everyone has that eye for color or infinite amount of spare time. Laurie and her husband Blake already own a transmission shop and the Lunsfords knew the importance of honesty and hard work and, thankfully, so did CertaPro Painters.

CertaPro Painters is the largest painting company in North America and the only large-scale, full-time, franchised commercial and residential painting business in the home improvement industry. CertaPro provides superior interior, exterior and special painting services to residential and commercial customers. CertaPro franchisees establish large-scale, regional painting companies backed by CertaPro's proven track record as the "Brand of Certainty" and a customer referral rate that exceeds 95 percent.

"I like to know that I am delivering certainty in a very uncertain industry," said Laurie Lunsford. "Moore County is not currently serviced by a national brand so I know residents will respond."

With the current crawl of the housing market and more people electing to upgrade their homes instead of moving than ever before, Lunsford has had her hands full.

"Moore County has grown and grown and I've learned how to put life back into homes," said Lunsford. "So many people have told me that they were going to move, but then decided to stay put at the last minute. I really love working with people in their homes and helping them to transform their homes inside and out is an amazing feeling."

Since beginning her career with CertaPro in September 2007, Lunsford has completed countless residential and commercial jobs in Moore County and the surrounding area. For Lunsford, a job well done is the only way to do it. With the help of CertaPro, she has been able to provide a high caliber of service while staying true to her values.

"Integrity is something that really means a lot to me. I have been in the transmission business for many years and I know that you must do your due diligence to keep customers coming back," said Laurie Lunsford. "At CertaPro we make a promise, and then deliver with quality results."
