The President of the company, Robert D. Bankston
had been working as a house painter for about 6 years, when
he enrolled at a University in Brookville, Long Island. There
he studied Art, Marketing, and Management for 5
years, while continuing to work as a painter. As part of an
assignment for a marketing class, he went into the local area
(an upscale location), and conducted some marketing research
on one of the topics he really knew well, house painting.
Upon compilation of his research, he found
that most everyone in his study had similar experiences and
expectations of painting contractors. Most respondents commented
that the painters they had used were sloppy, unprofessional,
disorganized, failed to return phone calls, produced low quality
work, and were basically unrefined individuals. The same respondents
also noted that they would be willing to pay for an excellent
service if it were available.
It didn’t take long for Robert to realize
that with his experience as a house painter, and his background
in Marketing and Management, he could establish a business
that would satisfy the needs of the demographic that he had
polled for his marketing research class. The rest is history…
“The Fine Arts,llc” currently enjoys a reputation
as one of the most sought after Painting and Decorating firms
in the New York area. We have been able to achieve this well
deserved reputation by providing the highest quality painting
and decorating services available, and by focusing on client
satisfaction. Our mission statement is “The project’s not
complete until the client is satisfied”, and we mean it.
What do we mean by the fine arts?
the President, Robert D. Bankston, “the fine arts” represent
all that he loves about architecture, art, craftsmanship,
and pride in his work. There is a huge difference between
painting a house, and painting it right. There are many contractors
out there who are painting houses, but very few are painting
them right. The name of the firm speaks to this idea that,
there is in fact an art hidden in what we do. Flawless finishes
that last for years are no accident. It takes years of practice
and study, as well as a complete understanding of materials
and their compatibility to master all
the painting techniques needed to achieve these superior finishes.
Our company provides the kind of craftsmanship
found over a hundred years ago, combined with the benefits
of modern materials and applicators. All of our painters are
trained extensively by the owner of the firm, first as apprentices,
before being promoted to painter (assuming they meet our standards
for a painter’s position). This ensures that they too will
learn “The fine arts” of house painting and decorative finishes.
