Crew Leaders Are Critical To a Great Job

Some people call them foreman, we call them crew leader here at Brooks Painting.  We currently have four of them.  These are the team members who are responsible for running each job.  They are the face of the company that people see on their jobs.  They are driving Brooks Painting vans all around town.

Training at this position is critical to the success of each paint job.  They have been trained on an extensive list of items that help make them better at running jobs smoothly.  From telephone etiquette, job sequencing, labeling paint cans at the end of jobs to final walk through with customers, they have learned it here at Brooks Painting.  There are four items that I want to highlight for you that I think we do better than anyone.  Before the job starts, your crew leader comes out for a Pre Job Walk.  This lets them meet you and review the job before they show up to do the work.  They have a list of things they go over, ranging from paint colors and job scope, to bathroom use and clean up.  This extra step ensures jobs run smoothly.  Second is daily check-ins.  It may be a phone call, email, or a note on the counter, our guys check in every day so that you are kept in the loop of what is happening on your job.   Third is additional work orders.  Instead of having to schedule another appointment with an estimator, all of our crew leaders have been trained how to do estimates the Brooks way.  They can write work orders for any changes that may occur.  Last is our final job walk.  The crew leaders receive closing packets from the office for each job.  These include invoices, surveys, sign off sheets, and referral cards.  They walk the job with you and make sure they have done everything the estimator told you they would do.  They take care of any touch up that is needed, and label all the paint cans.  They also have you fill out a survey, a sign off sheet that confirms we are done with the job, and collect the final payment.  Each of our crew leaders really is a manager of the job, they take care of it all.

We are blessed to have longevity at our crew leader positions.  Flint has been with us since 2005.  Manuel has been with us since 2003.  Gerry has been with us since 2004.  And last but not least, Bud has been with us since 2002.  That is a combined 34 years with Brooks Painting, and an average of 8.5 years.  This translates into well run jobs for our customers.

Brooks Panting Inc. just finished painting the exterior of our house. The crew did a terrific job. The house is a mid century modern with redwood paneling and an unusual amount of trim work. The Brooks crew was efficient, the quality of the painting was exceptional and the work was completed on time! Because of the age of the house several panels needed to be replaced. Brooks had the expertise to closely match the new paneling with the old paneling. I would not hesitate to recommend this company. They are professionals!

What a difference!! We hired Brooks Painting to do both an interior refresh painting and a completely new exterior color. Everything was handled professionally and as promised. The team, from estimator to office to painters on site, was responsive, friendly and skilled. Brooks Painting is the most reliable contractor we have ever hired. Thank you Jeremy, Dan, Israel, and Kristen.

It was fun working with Chris and his crew. I’ve never had a contracted job go so smoothly from start to finish. The office was responsive to my needs, Corey was patient and helpful while I made color choices, and Chris made sure I was happy with the crew’s work every step of the way. Gabriel does amazing work as well. Very much a perfectionist like Chris. I don’t have a bad thing to say. The job is absolutely stunning and I’ve had so many neighbors tell me it’s beautiful. I’m happy to put one of your signs in my front yard if you’d like so people know as they drive by who did the work. Thank you Brooks Painting. I will be recommending you to anybody who asks.

Consummate professionals! We hired Brooks to repaint the exterior of our house, and they did a fantastic job. The paint looks wonderful, everyone was also on time, friendly, and respectful of our property. Exceptional communication through the entire process. I was worried about damage to the landscaping near the house (bad previous experience with another outfit), but they were all very understanding and the crew was super careful. Did what they said they would do with no weirdness, no smoking, no radio, and they cleaned up after themselves nicely. This picky customer is very happy!

Brooks did a fantastic job on our exterior and interior paint jobs. Quality was high, price was reasonable, and the team was extremely professional and detail-oriented. Mark was our crew lead and the team performed a number of exterior wood repairs, a door re-stain, interior and exterior painting. Mark clearly takes a lot of pride in his work and went above and beyond to ensure the work was high-quality, including finding exact matching siding to fix dry rot, and performing minor repairs that weren't even included in the quote. He and the team were all consistently positive and personable, joking with each other throughout the day, while also genuinely complimenting each other on the quality of their work. It was great to see, and that positivity definitely showed through the work they did. We couldn't be happier with the end result.

Brooks Painting painted our home in Sacramento in March of 2022. Tim did a great job power washing our home. Corey, Flint, and Kristen were very helpful in the bid and. planning. process. The painting crew was excellent. Arrived on time each day and the project was finished in 5 days as promised. All worked very hard.
