Ghaster Painting & Coatings August Newsletter
I wanted to take this opportunity to give you an update on things going on at Ghaster Painting & Coatings. It is almost the end of the summer and it sure has been busy and HOT. It really makes me appreciate the quality and quantity of work that our crews put forth while working in the harshest of elements.

Have brush, will travel

We are excited to be the exclusive painting contractor for the southwest region of a national retail chain. We have been traveling to Texas and Nevada to paint, install wallpaper and display graphics in their stores. If you have any buildings in the southwest region that need to be painted (exterior or interior), please allow us the opportunity to give you a bid.

Family versus Franchise

I wanted to comment on the trend I have noticed of franchisee owned painting companies. These companies are popping up around town and are often owned or managed by people who have little to no painting experience. Make sure that whatever painting company you hire has an owner who has extensive experience in the painting business. Before you get a bid, first check to see how long the company has been in operation in Arizona. A good benchmark is to use companies that have been in business for at least 20 years. Second, check on how long the ownership has remained the same. Third, ask how long the key employees have been with the company. What you find out might surprise you - high employee turnover is usually a sign of trouble or poor management.

Colors Trends 2010

Once a year, Dunn Edwards releases a "Color Forecast" which is a list of colors that they anticipate to be the trend setters in the coming year. Some of these colors are: TARNISHED SILVER, ASHWOOD, PLUM PASSION, AMBER DAWN, BISON BEIGE, LOG CABIN, BRONZED ORANGE and CHAPARRAL. Please call or write if you would like a copy of the complete list.

Have a great rest of the month.

Sincerely,

Brad A. Ghaster
President
