Address: P.O. Box 8304, Breckenridge

Phone number: 970-547-7158

Q: Tell us about yourself.

A: We are both from Colorado – Tony from Denver, Kent from the Vail area. We have both painted for many years and have been wanting to work together. We enjoy the community feel of Breckenridge and chose to start the business here.

Q: When did you open?

A: We are currently open and giving free estimates for painting and deck work.

Q: What is your background and where did you get your experience?

A: Kent painted for other contractors in the Vail area before starting his own business in 1999. He has been successfully operating a business since then. Tony comes from a family of painters – his father owned Busnardo Painting Services in Denver and his brother, Vince, now operates that company. His other brother, Mark, owns a painting business in Telluride.

Q: Describe your business and the products you offer.

A: We have a wide range of experience in virtually all types of painting – everything from stucco to decks and concrete. We use Sherwin-Williams brand products, and Superdeck deck stains.

Q: What makes your business unique from other similar businesses?

A: We specialize in decks and wood siding. We are committed to exceeding customer expectations. We don’t cut any corners or leave anything unfinished. Both Tony and I have previously worked for other contractors, and are committed not to mimic the careless work we have witnessed so often.

Q: Describe your anticipated typical customer.

A: We anticipate working on a lot of rental properties in the area. Rental properties tend to take more abuse and endure more wear and tear than normal.

Q: Why did you choose to open where you did?

A: We have a great community of friends in Breckenridge.

Q: Any future plans for the business?

A: We hope that our business can become a part of the community here.
