About Us

Located in Vero Beach and Jupiter, Florida, Precision Painting & Waterproofing is synonymous for quality work and artisanship.

An early advocate of thorough training for field personnel and staff for Croom Construction Company, David Croom founded Precision in 1997 based on his early desire to raise the bar in the professional painting industry. His adherence to the highest standard of quality is well-known and respected in coastal southeast Florida. Now firmly part of the company culture, the team never approaches a project as a one-time project. As David said: “You’re a client for life.
