Paint and Patches was founded on June 1, 2015 to offer handyman services and basic home repairs. We had ongoing work patching drywall for an apartment complex and picked up small jobs in people's homes in New Castle County, Delaware. We got licensed in Maryland in 2017 and expanded to include work down at the Delaware shore in late 2018. By early 2019, our business employed nine people.
Unfortunately, illness, loss of transportation, and other factors took away key skill sets. We also had two customers who refused to pay for time or materials after running up more than $4000 of expense. We are seeking judgments in court against those people, but for a small business that operated close to cost, the combination proved too much.
We ended operations on Sunday, February 23.
