McClain’s Painting – Cityview
Affordable and reliable professional
Painting with a personal touch
Charles McLain graduated from college with a degree in business, but instead of working for someone else, he went a different route. After McLain worked (and enjoyed) a painter over the summer vacation and then met a woman who encouraged him to pursue his dreams (his wife Sarah), he realized he loved the joy he found in the work Painter could combine with his desire to be in business. The final result? His own painting business; McLain’s painting service.
Like any other entrepreneur, McLain started out small. “It was 1999 when I started,” recalls McLain. “Back then, it was just me and my truck doing job after job in West Knoxville. Luckily, every time I did a good job, people took notice. “
And take note that they did. McLain soon built a reputation for being an easy-going and dependable painting professional. And as that reputation grew, so did McLain’s Painting Services.
In just a few years he hired. From the very beginning, driving his truck from job to job, he has used his commercial skills to build a company that now employs 16 painters, two appraisers, a manager and a growing administrative staff. Associated with this growth is the ability to cover more territory; McLain Painting Services now serves nearly every county within fifty miles of Knoxville. from Loudon, Blount and Anderson to Knox and parts of Sevier. As for the type of projects he takes on, McLain’s crews can work both indoors and outdoors, from small residential buildings to sprawling commercial spaces.
Every project begins with a tour where the details of the project are discussed and expectations are set. “We never sell a potential customer. It’s always about building trust, ”he says. I think this approach makes us different. I knew early on that there was an opportunity to do something else. It’s really easy; be trustworthy, be reliable. Anyone can bring color to the wall. Gaining a person’s trust and confidence? Well that’s something else entirely. ”
