We’d like to talk with you. Ross Painting is always looking for dedicated, hard working people to join our painting team.
Every job has a foreman who is the point of contact on the job for your company. Additionally, Ross Painting has a Field Superintendent who is directly in charge of all foremen. The Field Superintendent is involved in setting up the job and will stop by on a regular basis to make sure that the project is running properly and on schedule. If there are any problems, The Field Superintendent will become involved in the project hands-on, until the project is on course again and running smoothly.
Ross Painting employs an experienced painter as a driver/delivery person to keep foremen and other painters on the job and out of the paint store. This painter also helps in the set-up and removal of Ross Painting equipment and materials.
Ross Painting has an office manager and part-time office assistant to make sure your calls are answered and paperwork flows smoothly.
We’ve been at this since 1972 and have experience in all phases of commercial and residential painting. We invest in our employees by sending them to classes and continual training. We also, keep up by taking classes on the various facets of the business. Ross Painting is an Accredited PDCA Painting company, the only one in northern California, and we invest in continuing education to maintain their accreditation.
We have always met or exceeded the insurance requirements for the projects we work on. Insurance certificates are always supplied when we are a sub-contractor and upon request to any client. We carry workers’ compensation, general liability, auto and pollution insurance.
Ross Painting has never missed a deadline. We expect that your important performance dates will be conveyed to us in a timely manner, so that we can plan our work appropriately. If everyone else stays on schedule, we should have no problem staying on schedule as well.
Condo, Apartment and HOA Managers
Yes, the exceptional high quality of our results.
Many, if not most, companies that paint large HOA-type projects employ a process where various workers stick with doing only one process. The workers follow behind one another to be as efficient as possible. One person may pressure wash day after day, followed by another who may scrape and sand, then by another who may mask, then another who sprays, and so on, through completion.
In the course of a year Ross Painting’s painters, however, rotate in and out of a variety of projects, from large HOA exterior projects, where prices are very competitive and productivity is key to success, to large multi-million-dollar custom home projects, where attention to quality is the cornerstone to success. We feel that this experience benefits our clients with both types of projects. When we are doing high-end work, it helps because our painters know how to be efficient and productive. When they move over to work on HOA projects, they bring an attention to detail that our competition typically does not have. Our painters will speak up if they see a potential problem, rather than just paint over it.
Ross Painting has extensive experience in all aspects of painting.
Ross Painting is the only PDCA accredited painting company in the Bay Area and Northern California. This required extensive study and continuing education.
Ross Painting has invested in training related to safety, handling of hazardous waste, properly handling of paint with lead, proper procedures for preparation and application, management and certifications for applying specific products.
Yes, our largest HOA project to date was 348 units. We feel we can handle any size complex. We also do small projects as well. Our goal is to service our clients and their painting needs.
Yes, we can provide proof of insurance with our proposal. Once the project is sold and the contracts are signed, we provide certificates of insurance with “additional insured’s,” mentioned as requested that is job specific and time specific.
Yes, we have a 3-year, 100% Quality Guarantee against defects in workmanship. What that means is that we will do the best job possible, but should your paint peel or blister within three years, we will, at our own costs, fix any issues in a timely manner.
Our process varies a bit for each project, but the following is typical:
Interior or Exterior – First we review the project with the field supervisor and foreman to cover the project and scope of work.
Interior or Exterior – The office sends a letter to the owners introducing Ross Painting and giving them a general idea of what they can expect, our anticipated schedules and dates, notices that they will receive and asking them to contact our office with any questions or concerns both prior to the project starting and as it progresses.
Interior or Exterior – We hand out notices to each individual residence, usually taping them to the garage doorframe or entry doorframe. Notices are given in advance of each process and instructions are given to the owner, such as, please close your windows while we are pressure washing.
Exterior – We begin by pressure washing the buildings.
Exterior – Once the buildings are dry, depending upon the size of the project, the washing crew continues cleaning while the preparation begins on the cleaned buildings.
Exterior – We start scraping, spot priming, caulking and filling. During this time, our painters are surveying the surfaces and report any wood rot they may encounter.
Exterior – We will then do any sanding, scraping, and patching that is included as part of the accepted scope of work.
If problems are discovered that have not been addressed in the scope of work, this will be brought to the management company’s attention for direction on how to proceed; if minor it is typical that a change order would be provided, and the extra work performed as may be agreed.
Exterior – Next comes the protection and covering of all items not to be painted.
Exterior – Spraying and back rolling begins.
Exterior – Painting of the detailed surfaces, such as window trim and door trim and any other siding that was missed or intentionally skipped during spraying, follows.
Interior or Exterior – After the residents have selected a few date options, a schedule is created for the painting of doors. As the time approaches, notices are posted as a reminder and the door painting proceeds. This is the most sensitive portion of the project and the hardest to schedule…we do our best to accommodate individual needs and circumstances while still maintaining a schedule.
Interior or Exterior – As completion approaches, an inspection is scheduled with the owners’ representative. This can be someone from the management company, a board members or committee of members or a hired professional.
Interior or Exterior – From the inspection, a punch list of items, which may require corrections or remedial work, will be produced.
Interior or Exterior – Ross Painting will review the punch list and schedule and complete the work as needed.
Interior or Exterior – final inspection should occur to ensure the punch list work has been properly completed.
End of project!
We are usually given a date by which our bid should be submitted, and we will submit by that date. It is extremely helpful, if the bid-information and instructions we receive are complete.
This is job specific. We will provide that information on our submitted proposal.
Our crew sizes vary from one job to the next, depending upon the size of the project, deadline requirements, and the work to be performed for that day/week etc.
For large projects, 4-10 painters are common, but we can send more, if warranted.
For medium projects, 2-4 painters are common.
For small projects, 1-2 painters may be enough to get the job done.
