Jim Bodden founded WOW 1 DAY! Painting as a means to reduce the mess, the stress and the disruption of repainting a home. In 2008, he launched the company with a supreme focus on speedy quality. Bodden estimates that about 85% of the jobs the company quotes can be fulfilled in just one day. And, with painting standards rapidly changing, the company can paint with low- or no-VOC acrylic paints. “The painting industry as a whole has dramatically improved,” Bodden reports. “Ten years ago, our [business] model would not exist, because the drying time on oil-based paints would not allow us to put on two coats in a day.”
