Commercial Painting Contractors - Experience and History
Dave Jones began his professional painting career in 1974. Just out of High School where he started his career and quickly grew and became a journeyman painter at a local union paint shop in Seattle, WA.
Dave spent over 15 years working in the field as a journeyman painter acquiring years of knowledge and experience which later in life would prove to be instrumental to say the least.
In 1992, Dave was hired by the late Chris Jensen, owner of Pacific Construction Systems (PCS) to start the Painting Division at PCS. During his 10 year tenure at PCS, Dave built a successful Painting Division which at one point in time employed over 150 painters and was one of the top paint and drywall shops in the greater Seattle area throughout the 1990's. After the sudden passing of longtime friend and mentor, Chris Jensen, Dave decided it was time to branch out on his own and start his own legacy.
In 2002, Dave Jones founded Westcoast Painting; a family-owned and operated business. Dave Jr. "Butch", learned the painting trade from his father, painting in the field and working his way up in the ranks to be an Estimator and currently Vice President of Operations. Currently Dave's wife Laura, son David, daughter Katie, and son in law Tom all play key roles at Westcoast Painting.

Our mission is to achieve "Success Through Quality, Honesty and Integrity"
"Success" Success means something different to us all. Here at Westcoast we achieve success by following our motto as a company, "Success Through Quality, Honesty and Integrity". Hard work and consistently looking at ways to improve our business is what helps us achieve success.

We have countless systems in place that help us deliver the best quality to each job, some of the systems include: Multiple field supervisors, quality control checks, job check lists, pre-jobs, post- jobs, punch-lists and setting the expectations high for all our employees.
"Honesty" Honesty is something Dave Jones the owner of Westcoast Painting has valued throughout his entire career. As a company we strive to treat everybody fairly and maintain the reputation we have earned as being an honest company. William Shakespeare said, "Honesty is the best policy". We have formed our business operation around these values and strive to create a culture of honesty for everyone's benefit.
"Integrity" Integrity is a concept of consistency in actions, values, methods and outcomes. Painting is a type of service where integrity in the work is an often time underlying and unseen effort by the contractor. Many contractors look for corners to cut and ways to save money on a project. This type of mentality is very short sided and is the type of attitude that eventually puts people out of business. Here at Westcoast, integrity is an endless value and we believe in delivering the true service that people are expecting and paying for.
