UTC’s new head basketball coach gets a freshly painted office to welcome him to town, locker rooms and other offices get a makeover along the way

Tim Payne Painting has had numerous projects with the University of Tennessee at Chattanooga in both the Facilities Department and Housing Departments. One notable endeavor being the McKenzie Arena. Inside, we have completed the following areas; stairwells, hallways, Basketball Coach’s office, Assistant Coach’s office, Coach’s Secretary’s office, two Track Coach offices, two Soccer Coach offices, the Marketing and Development Room, and more to come very soon! We are excited and proud of these projects, and are turning our focus more on University work for 2015 and beyond.

A new Head Basketball Coach came to UTC this year and we had the honor of giving his office a fresh paint job! He was the Associate Head Coach for the University of Florida before he came to town, and during his reign at UF, two National Championships were won. But when the Head Coach took a job with the Oklahoma City Thunder, he left UF as well. We are glad we could be a part of his welcoming to UTC and this wonderful city that we call home!

A light grey color was chosen for the majority of the office, with the UTC Mocs blue as an accent wall. This picture shows the project in progress.


We also gave the office of the Head Coach’s Secretary a fresh look. This is what it looked like before and after we repainted. Door frames done in accent colors are not something that we see every day!


This what a portion of the Assistant Coach’s office looked like before/after it got its new paint job. Beige color, with Mocs blue and gold banner was exchanged for the same color scheme as in the other McKenzie Arena Coach’s offices.


Locker Rooms

UTC McKenzie Arena Locker Rooms

This is the Men’s Basketball Locker Room before repainting was done. On the protruding corner, across from the lockers, at the top, you can see the border has been pulled back, by our crew, just for this picture.


A part of the Locker Room where the border has been pulled down. It left some damage in its wake that isn’t visible in this picture.


A demonstration of the damage left behind when the border above the lockers was pulled down to prepare for repaint. We will not leave a wall like this and simply slap paint over it and call it a day. This required a lot of time to go back through and scrape, sand, patch, etc., to get ready for the finish coat.


Above the lockers where the banner once was. This is after the patch work was done and the finish coat of paint was applied.


Again we are proud to be a part of the University of Tennessee and look forward to future University projects!

Solutions that make beautiful communities even more admirable

The Windstone Community is located on the beautiful rolling hills between Ooltewah, Tennesssee, and Ringgold Georgia. A community of homes and a golf course lie on the state line and bring a decent amount of tourism to the area. This is where we landed a residential job with a woman named Tony. An interior and exterior paint job were expected within three weeks, and regardless of the setbacks, the crew finished the job in a satisfactory amount of time. The scope of work for Tony’s mini-mansion included a full exterior paint job, most of the interior to be painted, pressure washing, carpentry work, and other miscellaneous tasks. Picture is of pressure washing project on one of the decks: Windstone pressure washing collage Interior shots of where an outdated wallpaper border was torn down, mudded over, and repainted: 20150414_102257 20150414_102325 A big set-back that our employees ran into was that some of her siding had rotted on her house. This lead to more repair. Our employees took the time to confront the issue before continuing with the paint job. Windstone siding collage A fence around the rear portion of the home was to be stained. It came to our attention that the gate was unlevel. Our employees took the gate apart, replaced a post, and reset the hinges and locks. The gate looked and operated at its full potential by the time our crew was done with it. The picture is as the gate and fence is in progress. Notice how the slope of the landscape could easily cause an issue. 20150331_155003 Finding solutions to problems, and following through, are qualities that give Tim Payne Painting its above par reputation. We plan to continue to please our customers through attention to detail, and exceeding expectations. We express gratitude for all job opportunities.
