A note from Tom Bob:

As owner of Tom's Home Repair and Painting, I'd like to say that I'm first and foremost a painter at heart.  Of all the tools I've worked with, nothing feels as natural to me as a brush.  I guess it comes from my family’s artistic background.  It's just amazing to watch something you’ve worked on so hard suddenly come to life after all that preparation.  It’s very gratifying. 

I started 30 years ago as a union painter in the local #53.  During my 10 years of employment there, I was picked up by a furniture maker, stripping and refinishing fine furnishings--I even learned to build a few pieces.  The boss broke away from the union and took me with him to remodel houses as a foreman.  I’ve always done odd jobs in the neighborhood--since I was a kid--so I did that on the side quite often as well.  Later I took a job for a major builder (Pogue) painting schools as a foreman for Jonsco, Inc.  We did all the tape embed, texture, prime paint and graphics on over a dozen schools, hospitals, nurseries etc. working throughout McKinney, Allen, Melissa, Lovejoy, Lucas, and Rockwall. 

I started Tom’s Home Repair seven years ago in order to spend more time with my family.  Since then, I’ve been blessed with what we now call a “family owned business.”  With my son right there by my side eight hours a day and my daughter attending CCCC in McKinney for decor and design, my dreams are slowly becoming a reality.  All the prep is worth the wait.  

I'm known as the "Home Town Handy Man" at the Chamber of Commerce in Allen.  I love being involved in the community and networking with neighbors and local businesses.  And I tell ya, "if I can’t fix it, I know someone who can."

Well… Enough about me.  Let’s hear from you!  Call me on my cell at 469-396-4421.  Our family’s ready to help in any way we can to maintain and protect your family’s home or just give it a splash of fresh color to keep things interesting. 

Thank you!

Tom Bob, owner
