About us

Every painting project starts with a sale.

At PaintScout, we’re on a mission to help painting contractors win more jobs, save time, grow their businesses, and get back to what’s important to them — by creating the most powerful sales tool available in the painting industry.

Our Story

Back in 2015, our Co-Founder Jon had a problem. 

He had a growing painting company, but managing 
the sales demands of the business was causing him 
extreme stress. 

He was managing painting projects by day, while also 
meeting with potential customers and writing up estimates at home in the evenings.

The stress this caused on his personal life, and his business as whole, was adding up to be a major problem—one that made him consider leaving the business completely.

Jon figured that there had to be a software out there that would make the estimate creation and sales process easier.

But every system he looked at either wasn’t built for the unique estimation needs of painting contractors, or didn’t produce proposals he was proud to show his potential clients.

So, Jon decided to partner with his friend, Bryce, to build PaintScout.

With PaintScout, painting contractors all over the world have now been able to solve the exact problem Jon faced, and grow their painting businesses, make more money, and get back their much-needed time to do the things that are important to them.
