BUSINESS: Legacy Painting
Tired of your house looking lackluster? You would be surprised at what a simple painting update can do to the look of a home. Applying fresh coats of paint to the exterior of your residence every 8-10 years can improve property values. Kevin Calmes, owner of Legacy Painting, emphasizes his motto, “Paint before it peels.”
Calmes has a passion for excellent quality and enduring results. As owner and operator of Legacy Painting, a full-service interior and exterior paint company, he has built a remarkable business that delivers professional, consistent results in the Oklahoma City area. Legacy specializes in a variety of projects for commercial and residential buildings.
Throughout college into graduate school, Calmes did part-time painting to pay for his school and living. During an internship program at Integris, his supervisor saw his passion in the construction industry and advised him to look into that field. Calmes later embarked on painting as a full-time profession in 1999.
Regular touch-ups can mitigate the need for large-scale repainting and can do wonders for the aesthetic appeal of a home or business. Calmes recommends regular updates to existing paints to keep them looking crisp and neat. Legacy uses only the best materials in their work, including Sherwin Williams and Benjamin Moore Paints.
Legacy Painting’s quality work can be credited to the expert standards Calmes holds for himself and his employees. “If you want the job done right, we are that company!” Each project Legacy works on uses a foreman, painter and project helper with extensive knowledge of their specialty, Calmes explained. Legacy spends time considering all aspects of the painting process and that attention to detail is easy to see in the finished product.
Calmes and his staff have decades of combined experience. Legacy has a team of employees who are all held to higher levels of education, product quality and customer service. Legacy is Oklahoma’s only accredited member of the Painting and Decorating Contractors of America (PDCA). PDCA certification is gained after two years of accreditation and offers distinction of superior quality in the painting industry. “It’s like we graduated from paint college—with honors,” said Calmes.
