Neal Krakow, owner and master painter of Painting by Neal, started painting in 1995 and quickly realized this was what he wanted to do for the rest of his life. Early in his career he worked for several large paint companies and saw how impersonal their custom service could be. Immediately, he had a vision of starting a small company with 1 or 2 employees trained to do things the right way with a personal and engaging touch. Neal considers himself lucky to have fulfilled that dream and today enjoys a hands-on approach to every job. He was professionally trained in color coordination and offers color consultations for all customers. As a small business owner, his philosophy is simple: provide businesses and homeowners with top-of-the-line interior & exterior painting, spackling and power-washing services at truly competitive prices. After 23 years in the industry, he still has the same passion for this work that he did in 1995.
