When people see that I use a wheelchair, they are always amazed I own a building company – and now a painting company – but being in a wheelchair is only a problem if I can’t find a solution ... I’m looking forward to the new challenges and opportunities I’ll face with Fresh Coat. - Herman Lendhardt
NORMAN, Okla. (PRWEB) April 14, 2020
Retired Army Officer and experienced home contractor Herman Lenhardt is pleased to announce the launch of his new painting company – Fresh Coat Painters of Norman.
Fresh Coat Painters offers residential and commercial painting services including interior and exterior painting, sealing and staining; pressure washing; popcorn ceiling and wall paper removal; garage epoxy and other services for nearly every protective coating application in addition to gutter cleaning and drywall repair. Fresh Coat of Norman has a 24/7 receptionist, online scheduling and free detailed quotes, and they only use high-quality materials. Fresh Coat of Norman serves Oklahoma City, Choctaw, Moore, Norman, Mustang, Yukon, Newcastle, Midwest City, Del City and the surrounding areas.
“Fresh Coat Painters is unique because we’re focused on making sure our customers get top-notch, dependable services provided by team members who are highly trained, bonded and insured and who are using industry-leading products. We are not some fly-by-night business – we are a locally-owned and operated company that’s backed by the support of a trusted, national franchise organization,” Lenhardt said. “My team – who are all employees and not subcontractors – and I look forward to the privilege of honoring and respecting your home. We are committed to integrity and dedicated to excellence.”
As part of the company’s commitment to customer service, Fresh Coat offers a 3-3-3 customer service pledge, which means calls will be answered by a live person within three rings, a quote will be delivered within three days (customer schedule permitting) and the job will be started within three weeks. Fresh Coat has a national product partnership with Sherwin-Williams®, so products are guaranteed to be high quality.
Lenhardt, who went to Easthampton High and Hillsborough High School, is a retired United States Army officer with the 82nd Airborne and the 20th Special Forces Group. He started his career working for his uncle’s construction business and, after retiring from the Army, he got back into the building field as a Certified VA Builder as the owner of LCH Creations LLC in 2014. As a Certified VA Builder – and an approved Special Housing Adaptation Grant Contractor – Lenhardt and his team worked to construct, adapt and modify homes to help veterans with certain permanent and total service-related disabilities.
“As a veteran who uses a wheelchair, the work was extremely rewarding, but I felt like my business itself needed additional structure, which is what led me to franchising. Meanwhile, as a builder, I was often asked to do painting projects and I found that many of the other companies didn’t maintain the level of quality and trust I would have expected for my own home. As I was looking into franchise opportunities and I was thinking about those painting challenges, I found Fresh Coat Painters,” Lenhardt said. “Fresh Coat was built on the concept of Painting Done Right! and I love the company’s commitment to raising the bar in the industry.”
“When people see that I use a wheelchair, they are always amazed I own a building company – and now a painting company – but being in a wheelchair is only a problem if I can’t find a solution. When you face a challenge, you can either walk away or find a way around it. I’m looking forward to the new challenges and opportunities I’ll face with Fresh Coat,” he added.
Fresh Coat Painters was founded in 2004 as part of Strategic Franchising Systems. Since 2015, Fresh Coat has been included in the Bond’s Top 100 and named to Entrepreneur Magazine’s Franchise 500 list. Fresh Coat is also part of the International Franchise Association, the Small Business Association’s Franchise Registry, VetFran and Minority Fran. All Fresh Coat Painters employees are background checked and Fresh Coat of Waldorf is bonded and insured.
