Resident or business owners who want a fresh coat of paint for their property would do well to consider hiring contractors from Student Works Painting.

Thousands of testimonials from satisfied customers, two decades of Better Business Bureau approval, and 20 years of continual company growth show that Student Works Painting lives up to its motto: “the art of beautification —the science of preservation.” Staffed almost entirely by university and college students, Student Works Painting offers the opportunity to make a good hourly wage while learning a valuable trade.

More than just another routine summer job, the company trains its painters on techniques of paint application and removal for wood, metal, and other surfaces, plus the right way to deal with peeling, blistering, bleed-through, dull finishes, mildew, and wood rot. After mastering the basics and delivering professional jobs to the customer’s satisfaction on time as well as on budget, entrepreneurial employees can assume the responsibility of supervising jobs as a crew chief or train to become owner-operators for Student Works Painting. Armed with the tools to recruit and manage teams of painters as well as handle administration, marketing, and sales, the firm's owner-operators get additional support with a line of credit and $5M in liability coverage to insure their painters. Top owner-operators have made as much as $100,000 in profit in one summer.
