SPONSORED CONTENT BUSINESS SPOTLIGHT SPONSORED CONTENT Quality Inside & Out Dan Dolby is one of Chester and Montgomery Counties most recognizable names when it comes to Interior and Exterior painting. For over 32 years Dolby has developed a reputation for extraordinary attention to detail and quality craftsmanship. The proof is in his customers’ loyalty, they use him over and over and tell their friends about him. One customer even sent him to paint their secondary home in Manhattan. Although he’s become an expert in his field, he began with very different career intentions. “I’m a graduate of Penn State University,” says Dan Dolby, owner of Dan Dolby Painting. “I studied to be an English teacher. After graduating, I traveled all over the world. My father became aged, and I returned to the area to take care of him. Our neighbor’s house caught fire, and so I offered to help him paint it. I realized I enjoyed doing the work and I could make a good living at it. That’s how it all began.” What started as happen stance soon became a passion for Dolby. He began working for a painting company but soon found himself frustrated by the sloppiness of their work. In 1985 Dan Dolby Painting was born. “My customers come to me because they know I’ll do a quality job the first time,” say Dolby. “I find great satisfaction driving by houses whose exterior’s I’ve painted. One house, a Victorian, was painted 14 years ago, and it still looks as fresh as the day I painted it. Quality is what drives me and my business.” Every project begins with a comprehensive, personal consultation to ensure that all of his customer’s needs are met. “So much of what I do is listening,” says Dolby. “I listen and observe, I work to understand what my customers want to achieve. I take into account physical attributes of the home and what repairs need to be made.” After the physical attributes are considered Dolby and his team review the aesthetics of the project. Customers may have a color pallet in mind; others leave it to the expert. “We offer color consultations to identify the color palette that best complements your personality, home and mood,” says Dolby. “I look at all the surrounding colors; accessories, artwork, cars, and even clothing. Then I work with the customer to pick a color pallet that will transform a space.” Dolby also has a colorist on his team who has a Master’s in Fine Art. No matter how the color pallet is chosen, all of Dolby’s work is completed with the quality and customer service which has become the hallmark of his career. Dolby has a select team of painters, who work alongside him to provide professional, courteous, and thorough service. Customers can expect them to arrive on time, deliver superior work and craftsmanship, and leave everything immaculate. Dolby stands behind all his work with a confident three-year guarantee. Dolby has taken what many may see as a commodity and raised it to a new level. In addition to his residential and commercial work, Dolby donates up to three projects per year, giving his labor and all the materials, to various nonprofit organizations; helping to revitalize things like women’s shelters, historic buildings and local landmarks. “What makes me passionate about my work is the stories about the people and their homes,” says Dolby. “I’ve never wanted to paint sterile spaces. I found a way to enrich people’s lives through serving them.” Dan Dolby Painting is a fully-insured, Registered Pennsylvania Home Improvement Contractor, License #PA091637.In addition to interior and exterior paint application, Dan Dolby Painting also does deck refinishing, wall paper removal and pressure washing.
