The arrival of spring is often a time when people decide to freshen up the look of their homes — both inside and out.
Some people try to take on home improvement projects themselves, but it’s often helpful to have the expertise of someone who knows the ins and outs of the job.
That’s where Color World Housepainting of Birmingham can help.
Located in Homewood, Color World offers services such as residential and commercial painting, gutter installation, pressure washing, carpentry and drywall repair, holiday lighting and more.
The company is a great resource for property owners who want to improve their curb appeal through painting or lighting, or for those who are experiencing water issues and damage due to aged or inadequate gutter systems.
Springtime is often a time when people put their homes on the market for sale, and investing money in a fresh paint job inside or outside the house can greatly improve the appeal — and selling price — of your home.
Also, with COVID-19, people have been spending more time in their home and may be ready to freshen things up just for themselves.
Gary Sheffer, the franchise owner of the Birmingham Color World store, said there are a lot of new trends and colors right now, and he’s up to speed on what they are.
Sheffer, a trained professional, will come out to your home himself for a consultation before ever starting the job.
“We spend a lot of time talking to folks and listening to what they’re trying to do,” Sheffer said.
Sheffer is the son of a builder and contractor, so he has always been around and enjoyed building projects, he said. He originally pursued a career in banking but always did handyman and woodworking jobs on the side to tap into that deeply rooted passion.
“When I saw the Color World franchise, it blended my interest in home improvement with the opportunity to meet and help people, which I most enjoyed during my time in banking,” he said. “I have been able to transfer the professionalism from my 20 years in banking to provide the friendly and responsive service that folks should expect and deserve when selecting a service provider.”
And, in addition to his time-consuming work as a franchise owner, Sheffer extends the servant leadership he employs in his full-time work to his volunteer work as well. He is currently president-elect for the Kiwanis Club of Homewood-Mountain Brook, is a member of the City Salesman Club and has served as both a member of the Homewood Environmental Commission and with Habitat for Humanity.
Sheffer is ready to meet you and give you the best-looking home on the block.
He encourages interested customers to visit Color World’s website, colorworldhousepainting.com/birmingham, to schedule a free in-home estimate, where he will stop by your home, listen to what needs you have and walk through the cost and expectations of the project — making one less to-do list item for customers on what is surely a lengthy list as summer approaches.
