In 2017, Joe Petticrew along with his father, wife and a longtime friend started ‘Petticrew Painting’, offering drywall finishing, professional painting and small odd jobs. The business got started after Petticrew and his wife moved to Chrisman.
“I had been doing odd jobs in my spare time my whole life, so when the idea came up to turn it into a full time business, we took a leap of faith and made it happen,” said Joe.
Joe credits his father to teaching him everything that he knows. He had been working on houses and businesses with his father since he was a boy. “We’ve always had a passion for painting and remodeling. It brings so much joy to the client that it’s hard not to fall in love with the profession.”
Working with family can be tough at times, but for the Petticrew’s, it’s the opposite.
“We all work pretty well together. Work is fun when we’re all on the site.” Depending on the project, it can take a few hours to a few weeks. “Our longest project here in Chrisman was three months.”
Currently, Petticrew Painting stays within a forty-five to fifty mile radius from Chrisman, giving the range anywhere from Terre Haute, Indiana to Danville, Illinois.
“We find ourselves learning something new all the time whether it be a new tool or new technique,” Joe said. “There have been many trials and tribulations along the way, but we are proud of our knowledge and expertise.”
At the time of the business beginning, Petticrew Painting offered full home remodels, but made the decision to cut back. “We decided to focus on our specialty of painting and drywall so we are able to get to clients quicker and have more time with our families,” Petticrew said. “We’ll see where the future takes us and we may offer those services again in the future.”
