A Family-Safe Painting Company You Can Trust

What does it mean to be a “family-safe” painting company? Well:


Have you ever had a contractor leave you waiting?
Have you ever been treated rudely or by grumpy staff?
Have you ever been surprised by extra charges?
Have you ever been left in the middle of a project?
Have you ever had a subcontractor show up when you thought you hired someone else?
Have you ever been left an unreasonable mess?
Have you ever had your property used or stolen?
Have you ever not been able to find the contractor after you’ve paid them?

Unfortunately, in the paint contracting world, these experiences are all too common. We believe it is safe to expect more. A whole lot more! The Final Coat strives to be the family-safe painting company you can trust.

When you work with The Final Coat, you can expect:

Social Responsibility & Environmental Sustainability


We realize that we’re part of a much bigger picture.  The values we live by can make a significant difference for our employees and their families, as well as for the larger community around us.   If we did nothing more than offer careers for hands-on people, we’d consider ourselves socially responsible.  But we can do more.

Social responsibility close to home:

  • Support for social organizations: YMCA of Akron, Portage Path Behavioral, Summit County Historical Society, Stage Coach Theater,  Akron Junior League,  Akron JCC, Hattie Larlham, Goodwill Industries.
  • Support for charitable organizations:  Breast Cancer 3-Day Walk.
  • Donating remnant paints.

Environmental Sustainability for mother earth:

  • Lead paint certification
  • Nearly all architectural coatings are waterborne (low VOC: Volatile Organic Compounds)
  • Sustainability coatings for commercial roofs to avoid ripping off and land-filling old roofs.
  • Sustainability coatings for interior acoustic ceiling tiles to avoid replacement and land-filling.
  • Oak Fatigue:  refinishing oak cabinets and trim to avoid replacement and land-filling.
