Jason began his career in finishing in 1997 after deciding to “paint for the summer” with a high school friend. After learning the basics of preparation, proper product use and application methods, he quickly became proficient in the trade. Joining with Aaron Brogan of Brogan Painting and Remodeling in 1998, he continued to gain knowledge and skill in all aspects of the finishing industry.
After admiring the decorative wood grains, glazes, plasters and specialty cabinet finishes in a few high end homes, he knew he had found his niche with interior painting. Having such a solid foundation in regular painting, along with exhaustive product knowledge and years of experience, Jason definitely had a distinct advantage over many jumping straight into the “Faux Finishing” field. Artistic by nature, and a knack for design and color theory helped Jason refine his craft as well.
By furthering his knowledge with additional classes and training, Jason became certified in the Faux Effects Gold line of finishing products. Since 2007 Jason has focused mainly on specialty cabinet finishes, cabinet refinishing, painted wood grained looks on interior and exterior surfaces, as well as many styles of unique wall finishes. He continues to stay updated on new products and trends, and takes great pride in offering the highest quality in materials and workmanship. His attention to detail is unsurpassed, as well as client satisfaction.
Kitchen cabinets are not a side business for us, they are our specialty. We take great pride in offering high quality painting and re-staining options for your kitchen cabinets that are second to none. Kitchens are where families gather, the heart of the home. Kitchen cabinet surfaces can take a lot of abuse over the years and will eventually need some TLC. Whether painting or staining, the process always begins with a thorough and proper prep job. The durability and quality of the finish greatly relies on the proper steps taken to prepare the surface. After taking care to cover and protect all flooring, countertops, and surfaces around the cabinets, we take off and label all doors and drawers. Before painting we always clean/degrease, sand, oil prime, caulk and fill cracks and imperfections before any finish coats of enamel are sprayed. Re-staining also requires a deep cleaning of the surface and a thorough sanding before any new stain or glazes can be applied to update the finish. Skipping any of these steps, or doing a subpar job, will result in an inferior finish that will not stand up to kitchen abuse. Don’t let anyone convince you these steps are not needed, as they are most important. We always take the time to follow these steps on every kitchen cabinet project we start. Kitchen cabinets are one of the most costly assets of your home, and can require more intensive prep work than many other interior surfaces in the home. Do you really want a “jack of all trades” painter working on such an important element of your home…?
