Bob Roth back home, ready to paint

ST. CLAIRSVILLE – After spending fifteen years traveling for commercial work, Bob Roth is back home in St. Clairsville ready to serve the Ohio Valley. Roth has opened Roth Painting, LLC and said “I want to grow the business back here where I was born and raised”. Previously, Roth worked for contractors, traveling as far as Texas and California to work as a painter. However, he’s now settled back in St. Clairsville to be closer to his family, because he says, “when you’re out of town it’s high pace”.

Roth also says he is amazed at the amount of traffic currently in the Ohio Valley, and the way the economy has grown since he first started traveling out of state. “It’s nice to see there are more people”, Roth said.

Roth currently employs four full-time painters and one part-time, as well as office administrator Jessica Stolz. Roth says his company is licensed and insured in both Ohio and West Virginia unlike some other small painting businesses, and mentioned “you can see a difference between someone who has never painted and an actual professional”. Stolz said that many customers have told her how impressed they are with Roth’s painting services, and that he is always prompt and efficient in returning calls, giving estimates, and getting the job done. Stolz also says, “he’s not going to steer you wrong, he’s very honest”. Roth says, “it’s not always about how much profit you can make, it’s about pleasing the customer”, no matter how small the residence or job may be.
