I have owned a company called Bob Peters Painting since 1985. Painting houses has been a way of life for me ever since I was a child growing up. I grew up in Amherst, MA and first learned how to paint by helping my father paint our three story house at 149 High Street as a child growing up. He and I would paint every summer, painting only certain sections at a time because of the size of the house. When I went to college, my summer job was painting for other painting contractors. I started Bob Peters Painting when I was in graduate school at the University of Massachusetts in Amherst, working only 25 to 30 hours a week. While I was in Graduate school my business exploded after I started painting on a regular basis at "Historic Deerfield" in Deerfield, MA. The high quality of painting at "Historic Deerfield" and the attention to detail that it required was a perfect fit for my new business, as this was the philosophy of painting that my father had taught me while working on our house in Amherst. As word spread of the excellent quality of work that I was giving my customers, my painting reputation began to grow. At that time my wife and I had our first child and I decided to stop with my Master of Arts degree in Sociology and forgo getting my PHD at that time. I was now able to dedicate more time to my painting business. I soon realized that I loved being a painting contractor and having my own business. Financially I was able to provide a lot of security for my family. I still absolutely love what I do!
