The Ferris Painting Story
Many of you know Ferris Painting and are aware of our reputation for quality painting and service for almost 40 years throughout Los Angeles and Ventura Counties. Since 1975 we have painted over 5,000 buildings, mostly condo and commercial building exteriors, our special know-how.
Our present painting staff consists of 25 qualified painters. Every one of these men have been trained in the Ferris "Quality First" system which requires scrupulous surface cleaning and preparation, highest quality application methods by experienced painters supervised by our very experienced painting supervisors. We use top quality paint and other materials produced by the best manufacturers for lasting performance.
How we got started: 1975 was a big year! Wheel of Fortune and Saturday Night Live aired their first episodes. UCLA won the NCAA basketball championships, Bill Gates founded Microsoft, I was in 6th grade and Ferris Painting was born.
A college kid, named Steve Ferris, was looking for a way to support himself after he left school and so he started a company now known as Ferris Painting. Steve started painting homes with a couple of employees and after a few years, he built up such a good reputation for doing quality work that he was able to paint his first large building, an HOA, in 1980. Steve liked it so much, that he continued to paint more and more larger properties. Years went on and Steve continued to successfully grow Ferris Painting. Then in 2005, he decided to semi-retire and move back to his original home of Northern California where he has been happily living ever since.
That same year my father and I met Steve and he told us his plans and that he was looking for the right people to take over at the helm of Ferris Painting. We met many times during the next several months and on January 4th, 2006, we officially took over Ferris Painting.
Our estimator, George, had recently started with the company in the middle of 2005. George had been painting on his own and for other companies for 35 years and had such a wealth of painting knowledge that I was happy to have him on board as our estimator. When you call us for an estimate, George is the one that comes to your property and writes up your bid. Outside of working, you may find him in a jazz band playing guitar or at the ocean on his stand up paddle board. Say hi, he is a great guy.
If you accept our bid to paint your property, you will meet Michael, our job superintendent. We have several crews that paint all over LA County and Ventura County. Michael's responsibilities are to run all our crews and make sure they have everything they need to give you a fantastic looking property. Michael grew up playing soccer and during the hockey playoffs, you will see him sporting his “no-shave” beard as long as the Kings are in the playoffs.
We have some of the best guarantees in the industry, including our free "Beautification Program" (call for details).
We hope that this information will be of use to you and that you will continue to call us with your painting requirements. If you are not a Ferris Painting client, we hope that you will give us an opportunity to bid on your next painting job.
