The LT Story


   Motivated by the desire to do quality paint work and unimpressed by the local painting contractors “way of doing things” Laura and Terry set out to show homeowners what benefit their years of experience could bring to area home and business owners .

Laura came from a family of painters  in upstate New York where she was taught the trade by her uncle Vernon Taylor, which allowed her to be personally trained by a man that not only  knew the ins and outs of the painting trade but of the painting business. After years of plying her trade, she moved to Pinellas County, Fl.  Laura  then decided to make the Tampa  her home.

Terry learned the trade from 3 old time painters in Cincinnati, Ohio, learning from the bottom up, the proper prep and painting of historic homes in Cincinnati. In  the winter months he came to the Clearwater, Fl area to work. Terry then decided to make the Tampa Bay area his home.

By the time of their meeting in the spring of 1994, they were inspired to bring together the experience of painting houses from upstate New York to Ohio River Valley to form LT Painting Service, Inc. Both being lifelong painters and possessing over 50  years of painting experience they felt uniquely ready to show home owners how their experience could help them protect their most valued possession, their home and business. Even today, as LT Painting Service celebrates 20 years of business, they carry on the proud traditions taught by the “old timers’, these traditions have helped make this work the rewarding career path they choose so long ago.

   Why not join the LT tradition today and enjoy the confidence of knowing your home is well maintained by LT Painting Service.
