It’s About Time…

My wife and I have an 8 year old son, and one of the lessons we work hard to reinforce is that the most important gift that people give is the time they spend with you, not the material items.

I hear every day from customers about the spaces that they want to fix up. They prioritize based on the spaces where they spend their time, and most important is where they spend time with their families.

Whether it is a screened porch, a deck, a pool house or a family room, where people spend their time always influences the priority list.

Because WHERE you spend your time often defines HOW you spend your time. And for most of our customers, it is driven by time with family. That is the best kind of time. That is a value that we share, and it is priceless.

Sometimes, this concept can become as literal as: “Where will people (family) sit when they come for a barbecue?”

While these questions can be difficult and stressful to our customers, they are simple for us to solve because we do it everyday, and we have for decades. That is why people call Topcoat Finishes.

We very much enjoy using our skills and knowledge to so dramatically impact how our clients relax with their families.

And, we know that our clients appreciate our service.

    That is very inspiring for me. I have a 10 year old son who loves doing projects with me. He doesn’t care were doing as long as he’s doing it with Dad. I feel the same way. We have a patio area we are working on. I really like the look on the patio furniture
