  • “I have worked with Pennsylvania Coatings Inc. for many years and will continue to do so. Their organization is well put together, always professional and the work is of high quality. In construction we have daily if not hourly challenges, I have had very few with Penn Coatings but if I did they were always a problem solver and owned it even in times when we didn’t agree. They got it handled and we sorted it out later as to not delay the project. This is very valuable and a culture that cannot be taught it has to be natural. So between the professionalism, quality and culture, I will happily continue to use Pennsylvania Coatings in the future for all of my coatings needs.”

  • “I have had the pleasure of working with PA Coatings for over 7 years while I have been with multiple General Contractors and held multiple positions from Project Manager to Estimator. From one GC to the next, they have always provided exceptional services from the office staff to the field painters. No matter the job size, they provide the manpower as needed to get the job done and continue to execute quality work within the project’s budget and schedule. PA Coating’s office staff is very professional, but also offer a customer/client friendly approach that conveys that they truly care about the project’s needs. They are always just a phone call away and more than willing to help with any questions, concerns, or other ideas to make the project overall successful. No matter where my career in the Construction Market will take me, I know that I can trust and rely on PA Coatings to be the right company for the job!”
