Who We Are

Elliott Garofalo founded Patriot Paint in 2017, with a vision of redefining the construction industry. With a single-minded focus to challenge today’s construction best practices, utilize new technology and methodologies to improve delivery capabilities, and create new industry platforms to improve customer satisfaction. Having achieved tremendous success with our clients in our first year, we focused our services offerings towards the retail and restaurant industry, and set out with a new set of goals. To achieve these goals, we need the best of the best, and in 2018 George Schaefer joined the ownership team to ensure operational excellence. As a result, Patriot Paint became Patriot Services Network in April of 2018! Together, we strive to set an example to our employees, partners, and clients that our commitment to redefine the construction industry is transforming from vision to reality!
