Meet The Owner
When Roy set out to create Paint It Right, LLC, he wanted to do it differently from many of the contractors he saw working at the time. He knew that cutting corners to get in and get out quickly was not only a disservice to customers, but it was a disservice to God, which is why Roy founded the business based on Colossians 3:23. “Whatever you do, work at it with all your heart, as working for the Lord, not for human masters.”
Driven by a conviction for excellence, Roy studied hard and developed a thorough understanding of paint problems and how to accurately solve them. “You can cover up an issue momentarily,” he explains, “but if you don’t address the original paint failure, it will just come right back. Our goal is to prepare well and apply paint properly, so that the work will last.” Additionally, Roy spent four years as a store manager for the Virginia Paint Company, giving him a unique blend of product knowledge and application experience, an education he passes on to his team.
A core value for Roy is knowing that his team will represent his heart for the company and the standards Paint It Right was founded on. “I can teach anyone to paint,” Roy said, “but I can’t teach integrity and character. I only hire guys who I know are bringing those qualities with them.”
Above all else, Roy is a family man. Devoted to his wife of 31 years, their two daughters (and son-in-laws) and four, active grandsons, Roy's is a dearly loved husband, father, grandfather and friend.
What Customers Are Saying
"I can't say enough wonderful things about Roy Parker! Roy graciously donated his time (a non-profit project) to instruct a bunch of college students on how to remove wallpaper, repair and prep walls, and then how to properly paint. On a number of occasions, he joined in with hands-on help. He is a man of integrity and class. I trust him completely with painting jobs and unequivocally trust him in my home. If someone is looking for a painter, for any job, they will be blessed if Paint It Right is the one they get...there just may not be anyone better in Richmond than Paint it Right!"
-Gwen (Midlothian Home Owner & Founder of a Non-Profit in Cumberland County)
"I could not be any happier about the job Paint It Right did! Since this house was built in the '80s, I was not expecting that 'new house' feel but it feels brand new. With the exceptional job, this house is market ready, although I certainly don't want to leave now. The painters on your team were positive and took pride in their work. Thanks for such a great experience, and I look forward to having you back in the Spring for the deck refresh."
-Cindy (Homeowner in Short Pump)
"I highly recommend Paint It Right! Their work is the best and they take great pains to ensure that the prep work is done carefully and thoroughly. Roy Parker and his team are a pleasure to have around and they are neat and clean!"
-Nina (Homeowner on River Road)
-Roy and his team have been a God send. We are getting our home ready for sale and Roy came and facilitated a quick plan to make our home seller ready. That included an eye to what inspectors might find and repairs. I give them 5 stars.
