What were some effects COVID-19 had on your business?

We really didn't have any negative effects from the pandemic. Last year was one of the best if not the best year we've ever had, just due to the fact that the level of communication between partners in the home was so great. There was also the willingness to go ahead and get something done instead of putting it off. And this year, all the people who were afraid because of COVID are booking appointments. It’s gotten to a point where I am turning off appointments during the week because I can’t get all my proposals finished in time.

Do you have any tips for homeowners who want to repaint their walls?

No. 1, don't put your paint samples directly on your walls because you'll always see that spot. There is a website called Samplize where you should go buy your samples or get a paint sample and put it on a piece of poster card so you can move it around and look at it without making a permanent decision. The other thing would be to always be really careful about picking your light grays because so many of them go blue. You'll always want to find a gray that's got a strong beige undertone to it. At least 50% of the time you're going to end up with a gray that's going to look blue on your walls, if you’re not careful.
