Well here it goes…..

My name is Rob West and I’m a blogger….. Well I am now at least!! I work for the best Painting company in southern Alberta, Contour Coatings LTD. Seriously. I never thought that this is what I would be doing at this stage in my life but I have really grown to love my job and where life is taking me.

Let me first tell you a little about my self. I am married to the most beautiful women in the world and truly don’t deserve her. Bailey is the most amazing person I have ever known. I also am the proud daddy to the cutest little girl in the world. Like I am talking about make your face hurt cause you can’t just not smile when she is around. I have an amazing family and am so proud of the heritage I come from.

I got into the painting industry threw my brother-in-law Adam Baker (Owner/ Operator of Contour Coatings Ltd.). He has literally taught me everything I know about all things painting. I will be forever grateful for his patience and friendship. We talk a lot about what we want in life, where we want the business to go, struggles, and to be honest we laugh a lot and I can truly say he is one of my best friends.

My role in the company is the Project coordinator/Marketing. So if you wanted a quote or needed a consult on your home or property, I would be the guy to come over and take a look. I have always loved dealing with people. So the fact that my job is to meet new people and to sell our services to them, is pretty great.

I hope that this blog can be something you go to for a few reasons:

– A good laugh. (Most important in my mind.)

– To learn about painting techniques and tricks.

– To get ideas for your home projects.

– To see the benefit in hiring a professional painter.

– And to know that not all “trades people” are uneducated, unprofessional grunts. HAHA. We want to have a reputation of being the most professional trades company you ever have to deal with.

Contour Coatings has been around in Southern Alberta since 2007. We specialize in Interior and exterior painting. We also do cabinet and furniture refinishing/painting.

Please feel free to leave comments and ask questions and I will happy to answer them. If you have a topic you want me to cover let me know and I will gladly go over it in my next post. I hope you will follow and enjoy.

Thanks for reading and Keep Smiling.

(p.s  stay tuned for some insight into our new billboard that we are going to be putting up on the south side by the airport in Lethbridge.)
