one step estimating company

Joshua Abramson began his career in 1987 with nothing but a few tools and some hand-stenciled signs. He has never let present circumstances limit his dreams; however, 25 years later his company, A. Allbright Painting, is one of California’s premier painting contractors. Abramson’s passion is to constantly strive for innovation and improvement, bettering himself, his company and the painting industry. His success in this has been remarkable, earning national recognition for numerous achievements.

In 2005, using revolutionary technology, Abramson developed a software program called One Step Estimating. This program quickly became the gold standard among painting contractors all across the nation, making estimating projects easy, more accurate, efficient and consistent.

He and his company also have developed their own line of exclusive paint color palettes and an innovative color presentation, using sophisticated software that they developed, called Colorchoice. This presentation allows homeowners to select their perfect color choices using over 150 colors grouped into designer palettes.

From his peers within the painting industry, Joshua Abramson has earned many awards and received much recognition. American Painting Contractor Magazine chose him twice for “Who’s Who in the Painting Industry” and Painting & Wallcovering Contractor Magazine wrote a 5-page article about him and his company in 2008. Many of A. Allbright’s projects have won national awards, such as PDCA’s Best Faux Project in 2009 and in 2011 the “Top Job” Award and "Picture it Painted Professionally" Award. In addition, Abramson led his company to become California’s first painting contractor to receive accreditation from the PDCA.joshua abramson

Beyond his business achievements, Abramson is most proud of his contributions to making the painting industry more community-oriented. A. Allbright supports local families in need with his Paint-It-Forward event, and supports those battling breast cancer with his annual Paint-It-Pink campaign. They also provide work experience and mentoring single parent teens with their Paint-It-S.M.A.R.T. program. Abramson has also aided other contractors across the country to develop similar charity community projects.

Joshua Abramson speaks at several events each year, including the national conventions of the Painting & Decorating Contractors of America, Dunn Edwards Paint and Sherwin Williams Paint stores. He loves to inspire others in the painting industry to set high goals and achieve them.
