More about Carl Pledger:  He is an artist, goofy, extremely dependable and all around nice guy.   He is THE WALL NUT!  Invite him for an estimate and you are sure to agree.                   

He grew up in the Philadelphia area and out of high school joined the Marine Corps.  There he had the very proud distinction to serve in the Presidential Helicopter Squad.  Traveling with President Clinton, Carl was a part of the ceremonial service that you often see on television and a part of the logistical planning team that made Presidential travel around the world possible. 

After his tour and travels he really wanted to get into the painting industry.  So he walked away from a fancy job with the State Department and followed his artistic instincts.  He started as an apprentice and worked his way up the industry learning the fundamentals of painting. Working on historical restoration projects was a bright light in his early career and allowed him the opportunity for more challenging work.  As customers began requesting faux finishing, Carl—the artist at heart—quickly found his “home” within the painting world.

He decided to take the business leap in the year 2002 and went into business for himself.  With a strong painting background, he wanted to know more about the high end plasters and other specialized faux finishing products that were just becoming available on the market.  He has received certifications from numerous product lines including:  Safra Italian Plasters, Texston Plasters, American Clay Earth Plasters, and Armourcoat Architectural Coatings.  He is also a trained applicator of Faux Effects finishing products and continues his education with a great thirst for product knowledge and spends many studio hours creating his own signature finishes.
