We pride ourselves on honesty, thoroughness, follow-through, and timeliness.

Thoroughness is key
We are tenacious about doing things right the first time. Our preparations are meticulous, our attention to detail is painstaking, and our finished product is first-class.

We follow through with our obligations to the end
We interact with our clients on a regular basis, often daily, in an honest, up-front manner. Questions, suggestions, progress. We keep our clients up to date.

Deadlines are important
We value them. When figuring our timeline estimates we often add time for leeway. Challenges often arise and delays do happen. By incorporating this experience into our estimates we avoid the “crunch” so the deadline gets met and no corners get cut.

With this Philosophy in mind, Platypus Painting pledges to the following:

  • We will return calls promptly and are accessible to you throughout your project.

  • We provide promises, not estimates. With the exception of change orders, we will stand by our numbers. What we promise is what you pay.

  • All of our projects will be completed in the most professional manner with the best possible workmanship.

  • We will be knowledgeable about products and their correct application.

  • We will guarantee our workmanship. You shouldn’t have to pay for a painter’s lack of skill so we guarantee it will be done properly.
