Business Description: College Pro is a multinational painting franchise. Since this is a franchise, your estimate is done by the OWNER of the area. This means he has a personal stake in making you happy. This listing is for the Naperville location. We do not have office hours- WE come to YOU! Currently we have 4 employees, though once we begin painting (in may) that number jumps to around 15. We do not use subcontractors, and our painters are expertly trained using the system we've developed over the last 40 years to ensure quality work. We offer free bids-- note: many contractors give estimates which can change due to cost overruns. With College Pro, if there is a cost overrun, WE pay for it, not you. The Naperville Franchise is ran by Patrick Keener, an OIF Veteran with a keen eye for quality. Painting your house is a very expensive process, so make sure you're using the right contractor. We offer the personalized approach of a small business with the cost savings and expertise of an international business.
