— Chris Parsze, Owner
 

Let me introduce myself, I am Chris Parsze, owner of CJ Painting & Services Inc. I moved to Flagstaff in 1998, and while working for different painting contractors, attended NAU. I quickly fell in love with Flagstaff and the amazing outdoor activities it has to offer and decided that I would call this home when I finished school. I continued to work in the painting industry while attending NAU and noticed the changes happening to Flagstaff and Northern Arizona. It became clear to me that Flagstaff and Northern Arizona were in need of a different kind of painting contractor, thus forming CJ Painting & Services Inc in 2005. I continue to enjoy the abundant outdoor activities here and am proud to call Flagstaff home.

Our attention to detail, product knowledge and experience in the industry is what sets us apart. We are quickly changing the way Flagstaff and Northern Arizona look at the painting industry, while setting a new standard of excellence. All employees of CJ Painting share this passion, knowledge and experience which shows through in our work. Quality and dependability are just a couple of things you will quickly become familiar with when you hire our company.

Mission of CJ Painting & Services Inc

Most homeowners do not have the industry knowledge to know what works, how to use it, or have the right tools for the job. Many details such as surface prep, paint application and a material's long-term durability often get overlooked. The use of high quality products is as important as excellence in paint application. By hiring CJ Painting & Services Inc, you can be guaranteed that we are educated on the latest products, take pride in our prep and work and know all aspects of any painting project to help eliminate surprises ensuring you have a finished product you can be proud of for years to come. We know painting so you don't have to.

 

What to look for when hiring a painting contractor


Are they licensed, bonded and insured?

Always check the ROC website to confirm a license is current and not expired or suspended. Hiring a licensed professional ensures they have met the requirements for their region and continue to maintain standards as laws change. This not only protects you as the homeowner or business owner but also protects the contractor in case something goes wrong.

 

Do you have a contract?

You should always have a written contract that outlines the specific work to be performed and products to be used.

 

Quality comes at a price

Poor prep, lack of product knowledge, use of cheap products and under-skilled employees are all things you want to avoid. Contractors who continually under bid (or go for low bid) usually cut corners on some or all of these aspects, causing you the customer to spend more money on repairs, or a complete repaint, and maintenance in the future.

 

Ask questions

How long have you been in business? Why are the products you are recommending for my project a good fit? What is your process for prep before painting? How long can I expect the project to take? and so on as it applies to your specific project.

Any reputable painting contractor should be able to provide a list of customer references from current and past jobs. Addresses, customer contact information, etc. 

A painting contractor who is offering set prices to paint interior or exterior projects cannot possibly have your best interests in mind. Each job has different needs, problems and product applications in order to achieve the best result.
