At the end of the day, I just want to do great work. My mom worked her fingers to the bone to give me the life I have today and I am looking forward to building a company she’d be proud of. – Robert Maxwell

Robert Maxwell has always worked in the trades – from the time he was 15 working in concrete and construction to his recent work in general maintenance – but showing up and clocking in never gave him the fulfillment he was looking for professionally or personally. That’s why now Robert is pleased to announce that he’s launching his own business, Fresh Coat Painters in Glenside.

Fresh Coat Painters in Glenside offers painting services including interior and exterior painting, sealing and staining; pressure washing; popcorn ceiling and wallpaper removal; and drywall repair. Fresh Coat Painters has a 24/7 receptionist, online scheduling and free detailed quotes, and they only use high-quality materials. Maxwell’s locally-owned and operated franchise serves Dresher, Fort Washington, Huntingdon Valley, Jenkintown, Flourtown and the surrounding areas.

“I’ve always wanted to be a pillar in my community and to have a way to truly give back, but working for other people never gave me the opportunities I was looking for, whether the company was big or small. By owning my own business, I can make our region a better place by creating jobs, supporting the community and providing quality service,” Maxwell said. “I’m looking forward to being a business owner and to changing the experience people expect from a painting company.”

As part of the company’s commitment to customer service, Fresh Coat Painters offers a 3-3-3 customer service pledge, which means calls will be answered by a live person within three rings, a quote will be delivered within three days (customer schedule permitting) and the job will be started within three weeks. Fresh Coat Painters has a national product partnership with Sherwin-Williams®, so products are guaranteed to be high quality.

Maxwell’s grandfather was a master plumber, which gave Maxwell the itch the work in the trades. He started working in concrete and construction at age 15 and then got his journeyman license as a plumber. Finding that he wanted to do more varied work, Maxwell went to school for general maintenance and started working in overall repairs, but he still struggled with finding fulfillment in his work.

“I worked for so many companies who just wanted me to go, get the job done and get paid. I really wanted to be in a position to make people happy through great customer service and quality work, but that never seemed to be the priority for the companies I was working for, which is what led me to think about opening my own business. When I found Fresh Coat Painters, I saw a company that aligned with my values, allowed me to provide a better experience and gave me the opportunity to be involved in my community,” Maxwell said.

“At the end of the day, I just want to do great work. My mom worked her fingers to the bone to give me the life I have today and I am looking forward to building a company she’d be proud of,” he added.
