Hi, I’m Patrick Dwyer, owner of Gemstar Painting LLC. I founded Gemstar Painting LLC after completing my bachelor’s degree in economics at Penn State University in 1993. After school, I had aspirations of working in the financial industry in NYC. However, the job market and economy at the time were in a recession, and I was having a hard time finding a viable job. Since I had worked in the construction trades during the summer in high school and college, people I knew began asking me to do improvements on their homes. Soon after, a company was born.
At the time, I knew there was a stigma that came with home improvement contractors of being unreliable and not trustworthy. I wanted to change the way people thought about the industry. So, I made a point of being professional in everything I did. This included, calling people back in a timely manner, being punctual, taking the time with customers to figure out their wants and needs, writing estimates and contracts in a clear and concise manner that itemize every step of the process, delivering the highest quality product to the specifications and at the price agreed upon in the contract, hiring quality employees and treating them well, and constantly educating myself about the business.
Today, I can proudly say that we have served thousands of satisfied customers who repeatedly come back to us in order to fulfill their painting needs because they have seen the value of using the services of Gemstar Painting LLC, time and time again.
