Proud Precision Painters was founded by Robert Traub Jr. in 2006. Owning a business was simply what Rob was meant to do.
Rob grew up watching how to run a successful construction business from his father and grandfather, who insisted he learn and do every task involved in the operation. But the most important lesson he learned was how to treat customers with respect and integrity.
During his college years, Rob went to work for a painting contractor, where he learned the in’s and out’s of the painting trade and quickly rose up the ranks. The experience gave him the confidence to strike out on his own and form Proud Precision Painters.
During the Great Recession, as competitors went out of business focusing on short-term profits, Proud Precision Painters reinvented itself, focused on long-term growth, opened a local office, and emerged stronger than ever.
Today, PPP’s customers, employees and vendors all benefit from Rob’s diverse experience and knowledge. He constantly educates employees on the latest improvements, efficiencies and safety regulations. He maintains a fervent commitment to eco-friendly business policies. And he instills in his crew members the same customer-first approach he learned from his father and grandfather.
Maybe that’s why it’s no surprise that Proud Precision Painters has won the Super Service Award from Angie’s List multiple years. Or why the company maintains an ‘A’ rating with the Better Business Bureau, without a single unresolved dispute or complaint ever being filed.
In fact, Rob’s confidence in the ability and of his team is reflected in a Guarantee of Craftsmanship, which is superior to that on any painting contractor in the Midwest. Proud Precision Painters offers a three-year Active Warranty for interior and exterior painting. The warranty includes enrollment in the Home Checkup Program, a complementary home inspection for every year the warranty is in force.
“When we enter into a relationship with a customer, we know that we will be dealing with this customer for life,” Traub said. “We’re looking for long-term growth, not short-term profit. And this is reflected in everything we do.”
