About Us

Duration Painting was established in Columbus, Ohio, in 2007 when Doug Elkins started his own painting contracting business. His initial clients and business consisted primarily of new home builders such as Rockford Homes, Dominion Homes, and Virginia Homes. In 2009, Doug decided to bring his son Dustin on board after graduating from Ohio State’s Fisher College of Business and due to his work experience as a sales representative for Glidden Paints. As a father and son team, they set out to diversify in 2010 with the downfall in the housing market to include a higher percentage of existing homeowner repaints as well as developing their niche in the commercial market.

With over 20 years of experience in the retail arena, and a vast array of customer service and management experience as a regional director with Waldenbooks Stores and Kay-Bee Toy stores, Doug decided, in 1998, to prioritize his principles and his family over career and went to work locally for a major painting contracting company. Doug was able to bring his management expertise and customer service skills to the company as Vice President of Operations to help fuel their growth and enhance their operational controls, as well as prioritize the importance of serving the customer. Doug has a passion to bring integrity and honor to the painting profession and instills the same in his partners.
