Look around you. It is likely what you are looking at is something ubiquitous. It’s obvious when it is done poorly, and almost invisible when done well. Painting!
Beyond the design and construction of your home or business, there are few activities that more meticulously balance aesthetics, engineering concerns and solid craftsmanship than painting. But coatings are not just for aesthetics alone. They protect our investments from the elements, keep nature at bay and stretch the useful life of our homes and businesses.
Adams Brothers Painting offers a full range of services for residential and commercial painting, from estimates, to job and site preparation, painting, and meticulous cleanup. In addition, the brothers can offer guidance based on color theory to ensure your new paint job complements the overall finished appearance of your structure.
Seth and Samuel Adams are North Country natives, products of Seton Catholic Central School and SUNY Plattsburgh. Early in their work life the two identified a need for high quality painters in our region and have made it their career. The brothers approach their profession as a team. Samuel prizes his brother’s unwavering optimism despite the curveballs their profession and the economy can throw at them. Seth credits Samuel as his mentor who excels in every aspect of his life, and who offers him daily lessons on how to learn from the challenges they face.
The brothers realize that exceptional service and high-quality craftsmanship lead to happy customers. They underscore the importance of preparation for their work. “A painting job is only as good as its preparation. Power washing, scraping, sanding, and priming ensure that paint will go on evenly and last the longest.” These professional painters bring the experience and the best equipment to ensure their customers are satisfied. They take the time to describe the job ahead and explain the long term returns from a high-quality painting job.
They believe in professional consistency. Whether the job is a small residential project or a large commercial building, each should be approached with the same degree of professionalism and commitment. Of their many jobs in the North Country, they pointed to a recent one they completed for a local dentist. They brought a property back to life that they had helped maintain for his father since the early 1990s. “We are proud to be part of a vision where the quality of the painting reflects the quality of the work performed inside the building. We were able to create a new office environment that even has custom colored toilet seats designed to match the color scheme of each room.”
While professional success is important to the brothers, they prize their family life as well. Both are married to teachers. Seth and his wife have been married for 14 years and have two sons, 12 and 11. Sam has been married for 12 years, and has a daughter nine and a son who is seven. They expressed their gratitude to their parents for instilling in them an appreciation for education and hard work.
The advice they offer customers includes, “Call well before you need your job done and have a good idea of your preferred colors prior to scheduling. For aspiring painters, they note “Our biggest need right now is more people who want to learn how to be professional painters. It’s a trade you can take anywhere in the world and find work.”
They offer advice to each other as well. “Get more sleep and read more books. Remember the Golden Rule. Seize each day and make the most of the time we have — on the job, with our families and especially with our children. Be generous with our time and our finances.”
The brothers acknowledge that building a successful business has been both their single biggest professional risk, but has also provided their greatest reward. Experience has taught them that hard work pays off and brings customers back time and again.
Seth and Sam see great potential for our region. As professionals, who often depend on the weather, they lament that it would be nice to have more predictability in our weather, but “no one complains about the overall quality of life and steadiness of our climate in the North Country, especially at times like this as forest fires, floods, hurricanes, tornadoes, and earthquakes are devastating other regions in our nation,” they commented.
The Adams’ brothers believe painting mimics life. “We don’t go through this world alone, so we try to enjoy every day together. That takes preparation and teamwork. We are blessed to have a great group of professional painters (ten in all, including the brothers) who enjoy the process of providing a needed services to our community.”
