Painting A New Career Canvas

From Corporate America to Commercial Painting

May 08, 2008 // Franchising.com // (East Islip, N.Y.)--- The continuing downturn in the real estate market is causing many Americans to stay in their current homes. With experts predicting homeowners to spend more than $170 billion remodeling their homes in 2008, Paul Granite, the local owner of CertaPro Painters at 15 Carleton Ave., plans to help Islip residents take care of their homes with the quickest and most affordable improvement project – repainting.

Paul Granite has heard some horror stories and understands that not everyone has that eye for color or infinite amount of spare time (he has a college-age son). As a former manufacturing planner for the Grumman Aerospace Corporation, Granite 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 Granite. "In Suffolk County there is a lot of demand for the service of a national brand, so I know residents respond very well."

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

"East Islip in particular has grown and grown and I've learned how to put life back into homes," said Granite. "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 his career with CertaPro in January 2007, Granite has completed countless residential and commercial jobs in Suffolk County and the surrounding area. For Granite, a job well done is the only way to do it. With the help of CertaPro, he has been able to provide a high caliber of service while staying true to his values.

"Integrity is something that really means a lot to me. I was in the manufacturing business for almost 25 years and I know that you must do your due diligence to keep customers coming back," said Paul Granite. "At CertaPro I truly take on each job as though I were working on my own home!"
