This is Chris Redgrave for Zions Bank Speaking on Business.

Joel Petersen and Nick Barnes started into the painting industry at 16 and 14, so painting is all they know. After working for other contractors, Joel realized he could do it better, so, in 1996 he launched Petersen Painting while working for a large national homebuilder in Utah, and Nick came on board three years later. Today, Petersen Painting has sister operations in Utah and Idaho, with Joel heading the Utah division, with Nick leading the Idaho division. Between operations in both states, the company paints 5,000 single family homes and 2,000 apartment units annually.

An important key to Petersen Painting’s success is the internal software system they developed to manage employees, projects and workflow, so they can grow their employee base while increasing revenue. The software is consistently evolving and can be adjusted to fit a specific project. Joel says it’s been a game changer in helping the company grow.

Petersen Painting provides professional painting services for new construction and multi-family housing projects. Joel’s team in Utah has 110 associates and works with some of the top homebuilders in the state, like Edge Homes, Ivory Homes and Cadence. They also paint thousands of apartment units, especially through the Wasatch Group management company, who contracts with Petersen Painting every year.
