Employee Profile: Brian “Boomer” Garleb – FSCS Paint Division

Last month we continued our FS Construction Services employee profile series by introducing Brian “Boomer” Garleb. Boomer doesn’t just run the FSCS paint division for us, Boomer is the paint division. His over 30 years of experience, his stellar reputation, and the tremendous wealth of knowledge he has built over that time make him a great asset to our customers.

FSCS Paint Division Customers and Bids

 

Speaking of customers, Boomer has maintained so many repeat customers over these last three decades for a reason. He handles every job himself, meaning our clients are always getting the best of the best when they reach out to us for a paint job. Boomer bids out jobs by the square foot and insists on being upfront and honest, even if it means the customer would be better offer replacing a surface instead of having Boomer paint it.

When potential customers are interested in our paint services, Boomer will go out to meet with them and look at the structure or space they need painted. Boomer’s process involves removing rust if needed, power washing, priming, and painting. After Boomer provides a quote for the job, his process is to give the potential customer the time and space they need to decide. He won’t pester them over the phone or come knocking back on their door. When they decide they’re ready to move forward, he’ll be ready to add them into his schedule. Boomer’s projects include a five-year warranty and usually won’t need any repainting or touchup for another 10-15 years.

Boomer takes a simple, no-fuss approach to his work. His honesty, fairness, and quality of work say everything that needs to be said.

FS Construction Services X-Rite paint color matching

Three Reasons to Use X-Rite Paint Color Matching

Painting is one of those processes that carries a number of thrills with it. One of those thrills is the joy of seeing an entire room or building transformed by a perfectly chosen paint color. Another of those thrills is less positive, and it’s the realization that the color you’ve chose isn’t the color you’d hoped it would be. And then you either have to compromise or stop the project and try again with a different color. And while this may just seem like one of the unavoidable hazards of painting, we are here to tell you that it doesn’t have to be.

 

Get the Exact Paint Color You Want

 

At FS Construction Services we utilize a tool called X-Rite Color Matching. With X-Rite Color Matching you can make sure that you get the exact color you want every single time, whether you’re painting with an entirely new color or matching an existing color. So let’s take a quick look at some of the benefits of X-Rite Color Matching.

 

Tethered Spectrophotometer

While the tool may sound complex, the idea behind it is simple. This mobile tool allows us to scan any color and generate an exact match. No matter if you are painting inside or outside, matching a new color or an old color, the spectrophotometer will find it and allow us to duplicate it.

Color Harmony

If you have a base color you love but are still undecided on your accent color or colors, the Color Harmony tool will provide optimal compliments to your chosen color.

Home Visualizer

Wish you could see what your room or building would look like in a certain color before you start to paint it? The Home Visualizer tool makes this possible. Send us a photo of the interior or exterior you want to paint and we can digitally paint it for you, giving you a clear idea of the result.

 

If you are interested in our paint services or have questions about color matching, please let Gateway FS Construction Services know. Give us a call at 866-551-3454, and let our specialists help you find exactly what you are looking for. We look forward to providing you the best customer service experience.

Painting Done Right

Here at FS Construction Services we understand how big of a difference a new paint job can make, whether it’s inside or outside. But we also know that painting tends to be one of those get-around-to-it-eventually type of projects. While it’s ultimately a pretty simple job, the prep, cleanup, and those hard-to-reach places can really make it seem like a tall mountain to climb.

 

FS Construction Services Gets Painting Jobs Done

 

That’s why we’ve dedicated so much time and energy into creating our painting services. Our painting services can be broken out into three main categories: Commercial, Interior, Exterior.

Commercial

Our experienced painting team can work with a wide variety of commercial buildings such as schools, churches, factories, warehouses, offices, and retail stores. Our team works quickly and efficiently so your business or organization is impacted as little as possible.

Interior

Our team’s goal is that, apart from the freshly painted walls, you will never have realized that we were there. We are careful to protect and cover all your home’s belongings while we work, and we waste no time getting set and started. We work with stain resistant, latex paint that proves durable and easy to maintain. Bring us in to work on your walls, ceilings, doors, windows, wood shutters, handrails, stairways, paneling, trim molding, fireplace mantels, and more.

Exterior

For many, they simply don’t have the tools or resources necessary to take on exterior paint projects. We understand this, which is why our crew is equipped with a 70 ft. boom truck, self-contained high-pressure power washer, and an airless paint sprayer. Similar to any interior job, we take special care not to disturb landscaping, walkways, or other exterior features. We can help by working on houses, roofs, sheds, barns, grain bins, flag poles, and most anything you have.

 

Any job you book with us you can expect a free estimate, power washing to remove dirt, rust, and old paint, a high-quality primer to prevent future rust, and a high-quality topcoat. Additionally, with our X-Rite Color Designer Software you can expect accurate color matching every time.

 

If you are interested in getting that paint job taken care of, or, if you’re planning on tackling the job yourself but just have some questions, please let Gateway FS Construction Services know. Give us a call at 866-551-3454, and let our specialists help you find exactly what you are looking for. We look forward to providing you the best customer service experience.

FS Construction Services Paint Contractor

Choosing the Right Paint Contractor

When it is done right, there are few things more satisfying than a quality paint job. For a relatively small amount of money, a fresh coat of paint can drastically improve the look of your house, room, barn, etc. Brian Garleb, our Paint Expert here at FS Construction Services, knows this as well as anyone with over 25 years of experience in his role as a certified paint contractor and industrial coatings consultant.
 

Chose the Right Paint Contractor for a High Quality Paint Job

 
Because we do a significant amount of work so close to where we are located, we find it particularly important that we always provide professional, quality services. It doesn’t help our clients and it doesn’t help us if we do a bad job. When you contract us for our paint services, there are a few things we do that we think makes us stand out above other paint contractors.

One of the most important parts of any paint service is getting the color right, which is why we use X-Rite color matching. We can get you the exact color you want time and time again. We use high-quality interior and exterior paint and have the ability to get to especially hard-to-reach locations. But we also know that getting the color and quality of the paint right and in the right places is only part of it. We will not only work with you to meet your deadline, but our goal, on every job, is to leave it exactly as we found it (except for the new paint). Taking care of the paint site, cleaning up materials, and making sure paint doesn’t go where it’s not supposed to are very important standards for us.

So if you are looking at an upcoming paint job and you’ve decided you want to bring someone in to take care of it, please let Gateway FS Construction Services know. Give us a call at 866-551-3454, and let our specialists help you find exactly what you are looking for. We look forward to providing you the best customer service experience.

The Best Way to Choose a Paint Color

It often feels like there are few things that can bring as much joy and frustration as a paint project. On the one hand, you have an opportunity to update and transform the look and feel of a space in a relatively inexpensive way. On the other hand, you have pretty much everything else. Whether you like painting or find it a huge hassle, there’s one thing that everyone can agree on: finding the right paint color matters. It can be pretty deflating to find out that there’s a lot more green in the gray paint you bought than you realized. Or that the blue paint you bought is way darker once it’s covering an entire wall.

Let Us Help Find the Right Paint Color

Thankfully, it doesn’t have to be that way. At FS Construction Services, we use the X-Rite Color Matching system. And while this may just sound like a fancy name, it can actually keep you from the headache-inducing problems that go hand-in-hand with so many paint projects.

For instance, matching an exact paint color can be a nightmare, and having to look every day at something that’s close, but not quite right, is frustrating. That’s why we use a tethered spectrophotometer. Again, it sounds fancy, but this mobile tool allows us to come to you and scan any surface you like. After the scan, we are able to generate the exact color you want to match.

If you need some help deciding on accent colors or are looking for a complimentary color to what’s already in place, our Color Harmony tool can help find the optimal color to match what you have. And of course, sometimes you just need to see what it’s all going to look like before you can decide, which can obviously make deciding a difficult task. With our Home Visualizer tool, we can take an image of your space, and digitally paint it before your eyes so you can determine which color or which shade you want to go with.

With our X-Rite Color Matching system, our goal is to take the frustration, headaches, and unexpected surprises out of your painting experience.

 

If you need any color matching help, or if you are looking for someone to come and paint your space for you, please let Gateway FS Construction Services know. Give us a call at 866-551-3454, and let our specialists help you find exactly what you are looking for. We look forward to providing you the best customer service experience.
