Testimonials

  • Our company hired Universal Painting Corp. to work on the Daytona Internationals Speedway in Daytona Beach, Florida.
    We have had the pleasure to work with them under a very strict production schedule since November 2015 and I am pleased to say the work was completed on time for the Daytona 500 in February 2016.
    Furthermore, Universal Painting did such a good job keeping up with our demanding schedule that we tripled their painting contract. This enabled us to achieve a truly stunning result in our World Center of Racing. I'm being modest when I say that John saved the day.
    I have worked with many painters during my twenty years as a large heavy industrial construction manager and John exceeded our expectations. The project would not have been completed in such a short time frame with such success had it not been for John's willingness to take on extra work and his ability to coordinate with ISC and our General Contractor Barton Malow.I am pleased to recommend John Aldrich and his team on any similar projects and wish him continued success in the future.

  • Working with Universal Painting Corp has exceeded my expectations for this scope of work. From the office to the field, UPC has always been top notch. Accurate submittals are received in a timely manner, scheduling of crews has always been accommodating even with short notice, and the field techs have always taken the proper care to protect their surroundings and have strictly adhered to the necessary preparation for each product. I would recommend UPC to anyone with coating needs.
