As a service provider for the painting contractor industry, we are constantly looking for ways to help painting contractors grow and succeed. We work hard to do this for our customers, but we also create a lot of content through blog posts and infographics that is available to customers and non-customers. The ideas for this content almost always comes from conversations with painting contractors. They will share with us the challenges that they are currently dealing with and we create a blog or infographic with insights to help them and hopefully the industry at large.
Here are three recent articles we put together that we feel are especially helpful.

We continue to hear from painting contractors that it is nearly impossible to find good quality employees. That is true across all of the trades, from auto repair to HVAC to painting.
Your key may be to find a candidate who has all of the character traits you want in an employee but very little experience. You can usually teach somebody how to paint well, but it’s much harder to teach them to have the character traits of a great employee. What are those character traits? We recommend three very important ones to look for in this blog post – https://www.propainterwebsites.com/what-makes-a-great-painting-contractor-employee/.
