In the vast realm of the painting industry, where big companies often treat clients as numbers, our family-owned painting business, J&J Painting, stands as a testament to personalized experiences, attention to detail, and unwavering commitment to quality service. As we delve into the rich tapestry of our history, we invite you to explore the journey that transformed a small endeavor into a flourishing legacy.
The Genesis: J&J Painting, a Family Affair
Our story begins in 1998 when Jose-Jesus Saldivar, fondly known as Dad, laid the foundation for J&J Painting. The name bears the initials of its creator, a man driven by a desire to carve out better opportunities for his family. Jose-Jesus started as a subcontractor due to language barriers, he set the wheels in motion, and in the summers, his younger son, Job, would begin to join him.
The Early Years: Blood, Sweat, and Lessons
In the early years Job’s tasks were humble, he started out picking up trash, cleaning the van, and learning the ins and outs of the business. One day, out of curiosity Job asked Jose-Jesus when he could graduate from cleaning duties to start painting. Once Job experienced the labor-intensive reality of painting, he quickly found himself wanting to return to the simplicities of cleaning the van.
Job's J&J Painting journey involved learning the ropes from the ground up, to organizing tools, cleaning the van, and mastering skills from prep work to fine finishes, all while attending high school. The realization dawned on Job that customers were specifically calling the main painting contractor asking for the J&J Painting crew, which was a testament to the quality of their work. Job tried to convince his dad that they too could become a main contractor, especially since they were making a name for themselves.
Taking the Leap: Job's Vision and Jose-Jesus's Hesitation
Despite the demand, Jose-Jesus hesitated to expand, given the language barrier. However, an agreement was made, that if Job would continue his education to master the business aspects, then Jose-Jesus (Dad) would be comfortable taking the leap. Job seized the opportunity, enrolled in school, and began to apply what he learned. He started by building a website, getting a logo, and doing more marketing for the company.
In the initial years, the business consisted of 20% contractor and 80% subcontractor work, gradually shifting to a balanced half-contractor work and half-subcontractor work. Today, seven years after Job took over J&J Painting, it proudly operates at 100% main painting contractor capacity.
Quality of Service: Where Experience Meets Emotion
For the Saldivars, painting houses is more than a job, it's about creating personalized painting experiences and memories for our clients. We take pride in transforming spaces to reflect personal tastes, whether it's bringing a daughter's dream room of Victoria's Secret stripes on her wall to life or protecting the most significant investment in a person's life, their home.
The quality of service isn't just a tagline; it's our reputation on the line. We take great satisfaction in witnessing the emotional expressions of our happy customers captured in the before-and-after moments.
Henry's Journey: Strengthening the Legacy
In 2022, Henry Saldivar, Job’s brother, decided to join the family business. Recognizing the strength that comes from working together, the brothers strategically expanded the professional paint services to include trimming. This addition not only enhanced the offerings but also strengthened the foundation of J&J Painting.
Their collaboration symbolizes the continuation of the legacy, where each stroke of the brush carries the essence of family values and unwavering dedication.
A Canvas Unfinished
From the start of J&J Painting to the present-day collaboration between Job and Henry, we see an unfinished canvas filled with memories, hard work, and a commitment to excellence. J&J Painting isn't just a family-owned business; it's a legacy.
In every brushstroke, in every before-and-after transformation, we find fulfillment, knowing that we've not just painted walls but etched stories onto the canvas of our client's lives. The legacy continues, and the story evolves, waiting for the next chapter to be written in the vibrant hues of family, dedication, and quality service.
