Thank you for visiting the About Us page.
You need to contact us directly by email, text or phone, and not through sites like Thumbtack.
Although we love all the reviews on Thumbtack , Angie's List, Porch and other sites like them we do not respond to leads on Thumbtack or other so-called free to consumer sites. Estimate requests are not free for contractors. These sites charge us $15 for very small jobs, or much more for leads some up to $45. They are making a killing selling 4 to 5 leads at $15 or more per job.
Most people are shocked when I tell them they are not actually free. You will end up paying indirectly for them as the contractor will be passing the costs on to you. So, in reality a contractor must get his money back for these jobs he does not even get or soon will be out of business!
If a contractor is getting one out of five you might just be paying for several of the ones he does not get.
So please contact us directly.
You may want to check out my blog post about the hidden costs to consumers and providers. You may now think again about using these services that claim to be free to the consumer. But that is entirely up to you.
Now a little about me. I am Scott Martin the owner of Martin Brothers Painting and I live in North Red Bank, Tennessee with my wife Ronda. We are just a few hundred feet from the Chattanooga city limits. Ronda and I have been married since July 2006.
I attended Chattanooga State and majored in Mechanical Engineering and I also took some business courses.
I started working and worked for Dowlen Construction in 1983 to October 2008 . For several years while working for Dowlen Construction I was also a part time trim/finish carpenter. All the other time I was a painter but sadly everyone was laid off in October of 2008.
While we were employed by Dowlen Construction we painted both small and very large homes in the Chattanooga area.
As a trim carpenter with them I also installed a large amount of the trim from around 2005 to November 2008. I hung interior doors, installed baseboard, trimmed out cased openings, windows and doors and built built-in bookcases and mantels.
My brother Paul attended Chattanooga State and majored in Commercial Art and is a fine pen and ink artist when he.
Paul and I are the only painters at Martin Brothers Painting.
Paul worked for Dowlen Construction for 15 years.
Dowlen Construction closed in late 2008 and filed bankruptcy in 2009. Paul and I were the last two employees to be laid off in late2008.
