Tuscaloosa resident and former publisher of The Tuscaloosa News, Jim Rainey, is pleased to announce that he’ll be serving the community in a new way now – as the local owner and operator of Fresh Coat Painters of Tuscaloosa.

Fresh Coat Painters offers residential and commercial painting services including interior or exterior painting, deck sealing and staining, pressure washing, wall paper removal and other services for nearly every protective coating application. Fresh Coat Painters of Tuscaloosa has a 24/7 receptionist, online scheduling and free detailed quotes, and they only use high-quality materials. Fresh Coat Painters of Tuscaloosa serves Tuscaloosa, Northport, Hoover, Pelham, Bessemer and the surrounding areas.

“At Fresh Coat, we want to raise the bar in the painting industry. We are bonded and insured and our painters are background-checked, screened and professionally-trained, so there’s a level of quality, security and trust for our clients. We are dedicated to providing a top-notch customer service experience each and every time,” Rainey said. “Fresh Coat is a different kind of painting company and we stand behind our work.”

Prior to opening his own business, Rainey had a distinguished 28-year newspaper career that included stops as the publisher of The Tuscaloosa News from 2012 through July of 2018 and, before that, the publisher of The Opelika-Auburn News from 2002 to 2012. He knew he was ready for a career change when he started thinking about opening his own business.

“I felt like it was time to do something new – I had set out what I wanted to do in the newspaper industry – and I knew I didn’t want to move because my family and I are rooted here in Tuscaloosa. I took some time to look at the Tuscaloosa area and to think about the needs of our community and I saw an opportunity to bring in a high-quality, professional painting company to this region,” Rainey said. “My family and I are looking forward to serving the community in a new way and to bringing a new standard of excellence to this industry.”
