Local painter, Don Murray, is giving back to the Tampa community after 15 years in business.

Tampa, Florida: Don’s Bay Area Painting Inc, a local painting company, announced today that it is offering to paint the exterior of a local hero’s home for free as a token of appreciation for their service and commitment. The company needs your help, Tampa Bay, to identify which hero in our community will receive the recognition and the free house painting.

It was 15 years ago this November when Don Murray set out to follow his dream to be a professional painter in Tampa, FL. Murray said, “Our community is full of people that have committed their lives to serving our Country and our community. We want to do our part and give back to those that have given so much.” It was the sacrifice of our hometown heroes who gave up their dreams that gave local painters like Don Murray and other small business owners the chance to follow their dreams.

Our community is full of people that have committed their lives to serving our Country and our community. We want to do our part and give back to those that have given so much.

Don Murray, Owner

Painting a home in Florida is not only for curb appeal to get a home ready to sell. Murray explained that homes in Florida are most susceptible to costly repairs due to weather, insect and other damage which can be avoided by properly maintaining the exterior of the home. Too often, Tampa homeowners fail to repair stucco cracks, seal joint cracks or replace wood rot. Painting a home by a licensed painting contractor not only keeps your home looking fresh, but ensures that these common issues are fixed before they cause costly damage to the home.

For a veteran or a retired first responder with a fixed retirement income, the expense to properly maintain a home in Florida can become too costly. Murray believes there is someone in the Tampa Bay community that has a need without the means. He wants to use his painting company to meet the need.

Tampa Firefighters Putting Out House Fire

Murray’s company will be accepting applications from veterans of U.S. armed forces, retired first responders such as police officers, firefighters and paramedics and their widows in order to be considered for the free exterior house repaint giveaway.

The deadline to submit an entry is 11:59 pm EST on December 31, 2017 and the winner will be announced on January 15, 2018. Murray said heroes who qualify but are not the officially selected hero will be eligible to receive a discount to repaint their house.
