A Brief History of O'Brien Painted to Last.

by Robert O’Brien

Master Painter & Founder, O’Brien Painted to Last

As a painting contractor in the early days I knew it was easy to make a home look good with a coat of paint. But I made it my mission to have that home still look good fifteen years or more later! That’s why I named my company O’Brien Painted to Last. 


That was over forty years ago, and our good reputation has been founded on that mission. We often repaint a customer’s home twenty or more years after we first painted it for them!

I became aware of Megan Kincaid’s legendary success as a woman painting contractor when she started to compete against our company for painting jobs. Curious who she was, I would ask about her at paint stores. Praise for her was high. 


Eventually I had the pleasure of meeting her at a paint store, and we hit it off immediately. Years later, to my surprise, she began recommending us to her customers for exteriors, since, at that time, she specialized in interiors and color consultation. Her recommendations were priceless because of her own good reputation for quality work.

When I decided to slow down after 43 years in the business, Megan was the first and only person I trusted to pitch in and maintain the high standards and great reputation we had established for O’Brien Painted To Last. I was delighted to find that she too was looking for a change, and was ready to move into the managerial part of the painting business. 


We teamed up, and I am happy to find Megan a perfect fit for the evolution of O’Brien Painted To Last. What a relief it is to know that my name and company’s reputation is being ushered forward into the future in such capable hands!
