A Little History Of Parnell Painting
This small Nanaimo painting company is owned and operated by Jack and Audrey Parnell. We are both long term residents of the area. Jack worked for 12 years in the paint industry before deciding to start his own business in 2003. He was a sales representative and store manager for major paint companies. Between 2003 and present Jack took a 4 year hiatus from the company to be the head painter for the beautiful Fairmont Chateau Lake Louise hotel in Alberta.
Jack’s background in the paint industry and his experience has become very valuable for the business. He can truly say he knows paint from the inside out, right down to its technical data. His expertise ensures that the correct product will always be chosen for the job, along with the proper preparation and application method.
Audrey is a 3rd generation painter in her family. First her grandfather, then her father as a certified journeyman painter, now retired. She had exposure to the industry through her childhood when her dad ran his own painting company. She also has a good eye for decorating and colour.
From the start of the company the objective was to provide excellent service and quality. By choice the business has been kept to the two of us. This allows us to provide a personal service to our customers. Not relying on employees means we have complete control over the quality of the work.
Over the years we have developed an efficient way of working together. We enjoy what we do and love seeing the end results we can create in the interior and on the exterior of a home. We are both dedicated to providing superior customer service and quite often get compliments on our professionalism and respect for our client’s homes and property.
We have done all kinds of jobs over the years from numerous residential repaints, rental properties and new construction houses. We are careful in our scheduling making sure to never over book. Once we start your project it is our priority until it is complete.
