Chicago Tech Startup Launches New "House Painting In Place" Technology In Wake Of Coronavirus (COVID-19) Pandemic
As small businesses across the nation adapt to the new normal of the coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic, a Chicago-based house painting startup is using technology to reinvent the way homeowners get basic home improvement projects like house painting or drywall repairs done amid "Shelter-In-Place" orders.
By: Improovy Inc.
Over the past few months, the young tech company has developed an algorithm-based pricing tool that provides homeowners easy and accurate price quotes for common home improvements, such as house painting or drywall repairs. Improovy's algorithm takes decades of paint job site data and combines it with public property records like when the home was built and construction blueprints to create an exact price to paint a home or apartment, no in-person visit required.

"And since our interior and exterior painting estimates are 100% digital or over-the-phone, you can easily hire an Improovy painter in your pajamas if you wanted to."
Not to mention, Improovy has found ways to further streamline the house painting process from start to finish over the past few months for many homeowners located in Chicagoland and near Improovy's second location in Naperville, a Western suburb of Chicago.
Looking to hire a Chicago painting service or a home painter near Naperville? Improovy specializes in the following home improvement services:
A number of online reviews from recent customers have mentioned not only the ease of the quote process but the simplicity of their entire painting experience. From picking paint colors to the quality and timeliness of their paint crews (all of whom are fully vetted, insured, and experienced professional painters), Improovy has quickly become on Chicagoland's most recommended painting service.
A recent Chicago interior painting client on Yelp posted, "Looking for a solid painter near me was harder than I anticipated. I needed a quick turnaround for my painting job and Improovy did not disappoint. They gave me a quote from pictures of the project space; no time-consuming appointment. We agreed to a price over the phone, I chose paint colors and they began the next day. The painters were clean, efficient, and did a wonderful job. My living room and kitchen were transformed."
In response to the coronavirus (COVID-19) shutdown in Illinois, Improovy is only actively working on unoccupied spaces such as pre-move-in or move-out home painting projects and empty commercial facilities for the time being. Additionally, their painters are following strict CDC guidelines and limiting crew sizes to keep customers and crew members safe during the pandemic.
Improovy has also taken its popular complementary paint color consultation service and gone 100% virtual. Homeowners can now book their expert paint color consultation with a local Sherwin-Williams or Benjamin Moore designer via Facetime or Zoom online.
Despite the statewide shutdown, Improovy is still very much open for business as an essential service, actively scheduling future interior and exterior painting projects booked in advance. For a limited time, Improovy is now offering a $200 coupon credit to clients that reserve a future spot in their calendar during the lockdown period.
"While in lockdown, Improovy has been fortunate enough to be busy as homeowners stuck at home are curious as to how much it would cost to change outdated interior paint colors, repaint old cabinets, or even freshen up the exterior of their homes," adds Andre. "However, we are fully aware of the toll that the coronavirus is taking on businesses such as local restaurants here in Chicago. That's why we are pledging a portion of every future paint job booked during the lockdown to help our local communities and business owners. We all need to do our part as we grind out these next few tough months together. No matter how bleak things may seem, there's most certainly a light at the end of this tunnel."
As we adjust to the new normal of the coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic, it will be essential that businesses evolve to survive. With this in mind, it's certainly nice to see that local Chicago-area startups like Improovy are finding ways to rethink the way that traditional industries like house painting operate from the ground up.
