The first seeds for Advanced Painting were planted in the mid 1960s when Allen was a young man in South Dakota helping his father build homes. Allen helped with all of the construction trades, but took a particular interest in painting. Allen had found his niche and with big dreams and a paintbrush in hand, he came to California in 1967 where new construction abounded. Working eagerly and earnestly, he eventually established Advanced Decorating Company in 1976. He acquired his first Homeowner’s Association client in 1980, marking the beginning of what is now a more than 30-year history of serving residential community associations. One of the earliest members of the Community Associations Institute, Allen has played an active role in both CAI and the California Association of Community Managers and is widely regarded as a paint industry leader. Allen grew Advanced Painting & Wood Repair into what it is today: an industry forerunner with knowledgeable crews in painting, wood repair and wrought iron welding. As the founder of Advanced, Allen remains ever present, continuing as an active consultant, while now making time for golf and some well-earned travel and leisure.
