Wisely capitalizing on Atlanta’s steady growth economically, socially and physically inside and outside its perimeter, Scott Csaszar made a drastic career change and became an entrepreneur in an industry that had a future just as promising; he became the founder and CEO of Flawless Painting in March of 2000. Now completing its 16th year of beautifying homes and business spaces throughout Georgia, Flawless has a golden reputation, numerous awards, and accolades (including Best of Houzz 2015, 2016 and 2017) enabling Csaszar to expand his business in multiple states.
Originally from Philadelphia, Pa., Csaszar, 49, recounted how life’s misfortunes sometimes help pave the way for other opportunities. Flawless, based in Roswell, was certainly the most life-altering one.
“Unfortunately, I was downsized in corporate America and I fell back on a skill I love to do, which is transforming homes and businesses,” Csaszar says. “I learned this trait as a teenager working alongside my brother. I started this company to cover my expenses and survive. After assisting many customers for over a year and a half on my own, I quickly realized Atlanta really needed a reputable painting company.”
From taking on single-home jobs in the early stages, Flawless now specializes in a plethora of services including all aspects of residential and commercial painting for both interior and exterior projects; deck staining and painting; wood-rot repairs; kitchen cabinet transformations; and color consultations to list a few. And while the work Flawless does is often very demanding and meticulous, the rewards make it all worthwhile.
“The greatest challenge is making sure we take care of each customer’s home the way I expect my painters to take care of my own home,” Csaszar explains. “Another tough task is accommodating all needs and expectations. And last, the challenge of being flexible and able to adapt to changing weather conditions. However, in the end, what I enjoy the most is getting repeat satisfied customers. After all the work and effort that goes into completing a project, I specifically enjoy hearing a customer say, ‘I appreciate the work done and thank you!’”
When asked about some of the most memorable projects he has taken on, Csaszar initially listed projects with renowned builders, architects, and a major hotel chain based in Florida. And then he laughed and added one more, “The most extravagant and eccentric project we have done to date is painting a mansion for the number one TV series on the Oxygen network called Bad Girls of Atlanta.”
Along with implementing the numerous current trends including everyone using “crisp, fresh and bright colors,” using eco-friendly paint, Csaszar is looking forward to what the warm months of Georgia’s capital and beyond have in store. “With beautiful Atlanta weather, spring and summer really represent our busy season for exterior projects,” he says. “To name one in particular, we recently have just been awarded the opportunity to paint 55 customer homes.”
Ultimately, Csaszar welcomes the consistent business and plans for an extremely busy summer, but he was quick to emphasize the overall goal. “No matter how successful we are, Flawless plans to continue to grow by using the same philosophy—taking care of one customer at a time.”
