Apprentice Program

At Finglas Painting, we believe professional development has the greatest impact on quality work and sustainability, both for our brand and business and for our community. Like those who guided us, we feel obligated to invest in our industry by passing on our knowledge, craftsmanship and work ethic to future generations.

Professional Development

We offer dynamic apprenticeship programs that are customized by speciality. We offer 60 days of on-the-job, side-by-side training with expert technicians, each of whom teaches a specific aspect of the craft:

  • Sculpting. Whether working with curved or straight pieces or dealing with unusual angles, getting hardwood flooring to seamlessly match the respective walls is a craft unlike any other.
  • Sanding. Molding and smoothing different species of woods requires specialized knowledge of techniques, dustless technology and machinery.
  • Staining. By hand produces better results. We take particular pride in teaching this traditional, tested method.
  • Finishing. Learn finish-sealant application techniques and how to gauge the need for multiple coats. We always want to leave with a job best done.

Jody Finglas
Finglas Painting came to our attention when we chose to bring up a New York City designer. She was familiar with a particular line of High Gloss Oil products made by a company called Fine Paints of Europe that we fell in love with. Finglas Painting is one of a very select group of companies certified and trained by FPE at their facility in Vermont. The finishes they applied in our Westchester home were nothing short of amazing. I really can’t say enough about this company. Do yourself a favor, if you’re looking for high end quality work you have to hire these guys.
I was amazed not only by the overall quality of the work, but the attention given to every little detail. It seemed like nothing was too small to be overlooked. Based on my experience and the results we got I would recommend Finglas Painting to anyone who is looking for a first class job – at surprisingly reasonable prices.

My husband and I were very pleased with the work and professionalism of Jody and his team. Finglas Painting had come highly recommended and they provided the icing on the cake for the renovation of our home. Best of all, Finglas Painting was surprisingly reasonable and accurate in their estimate. They finished the work on time and went the extra mile. When I was approached for a reference for their site, I didn’t hesitate for a second.

Finglas Painting, Inc. was referred to us through our Realtor when we bought our home. The house is over 60 years old and we had numerous issues that had to be addressed, none more important than the EPA Lead Law that pertained to our new old house. Finglas Painting never slowed down once, they addressed all issues and concerns we had about the project. Jody even went as far as to set up a meeting with the EPA Inspector in our area to put our mind at ease. I have never seen such a level of professionalism and concern for the welfare of a client as this company provided.
