Whelehan Painting is a father/son run business that has been been in business since 1972. Anybody can claim to be a great painter but I have found over the years that it also takes a great businessperson to run a highly respected company. I pride myself in showing up when scheduled, having a great relationship with my customers, and most of all giving your project the attention to detail that is required.
Ask any professional who knows the trade that the most important part of a long lasting, beautiful job is all in their prep work. Our company always takes the time needed to provide you with proper setup, prep work, finish coat, and clean up. Also, we provide our customers with last job references. This is where we provide you with the phone # of our most resent customer(s) (with their consent) so you can get their feedback on how happy they were with our service.
Anybody can give out references of their happy customers, but no one offers their most resent customers, no matter when you call. I’m that confident every time I leave the job site! Thank you, and I hope to hear from you soon!
History Of Whelehan Painting
In 1977 my father Chuck started Whelehan Painting. I remember when I was 14 I wanted to buy a Syracuse Orangemen jacket and needed money, so I asked my dad. He told me to come work with him the next day and I could earn the money. After that day I started working almost everyday on my summer vacations, and then full time right out of high school. I knew this was what I wanted to do the rest of my life. Making things look a hundred times better, being outside in the summers, inside through the winters, and working for myself. I couldn't think of a better career. I worked for my father for seven years until we became partners for the next eight. He decided he was going to retire after being diagnosed with Parkinson's which had been traced back to his time served in Vietnam. As sad as it was not to work with my pops anymore, I had started a family of my own and decided to advertise more. Business started to pick up, and I needed some extra help. I began hiring some people who I thought fit in and could interact with my customers well. I certainly went through some interesting characters, but also met some great people I call friends now. I am very picky on who I hire, they are all good, respectful, and experienced painters. So that's a quick history of how we started and got where we are today. I love what I do, and couldn't imagine doing anything else. My goal is to do the best job possible, using the best materials, so that I have repeat customers, and someone who would enjoy sharing my contact information with their friends and family.
