Noah and Ian Trosky

Brothers Noah and Ian Trosky founded TNT Painting & Decorating in the early 90's and have been successfully serving homeowners and business owners on the Monterey Peninsula ever since.  

Their business runs out of an old barn in Carmel Valley that is fully equipped with a spray booth and hundreds of colors to create their own blends of the finest hues to customize your home.  They are color experts in every sense of the word and can help guide you to the most desirable palette in any space or surface presented to them.

They have always dedicated themselves to meeting and exceeding each client's expectations.  Their passion for their craft and their deeply rooted integrity is what separates them from their competition. They pride themselves on having the patience it takes to really try and understand what a client is looking to achieve and reaching that goal without unnecessary and excessive cost.

This attention to detail is a staple in who they are.  No matter if they are bidding on a cabin or a castle, their integrity is iron clad.

Our Principals

Outside of our families, there is nothing we value more than our work ethic. These moral values are deeply ingrained in everything we do. It is our belief system and we feel honored to to have the opportunity and the ability to serve. This is our way to do what we love and make a living at it.

We firmly believe that the key to a smooth running project is complete communication and a totally committed team. From the apprentices and journeyman to the management and ownership. By fielding daily reports from our team leaders we can eliminate potential problems before they manifest.

Our belief is we are only as good as our last job. Each client is the most important client. Regardless of our reputation we understand by being present in each and every project, and treating it as our number one priority, we will finish with good results.

Quality Standards

Every surface scheduled to be finished goes through an inspection process before and after we apply any materials. The two most important ingredients to a quality lasting finish are the preparation and the products being applied. TNT is continuously doing research to stay on the forefront of technology. Since California, and especially the Monterey Peninsula, have extremely strict (VOC) volatile organic compounds laws, it is our job to find the safest and most durable materials that are currently available on the market. The science behind these new products is very precise and is breaking through to enable these new materials to last even longer than the aged oil based products used for so many years. Some things we may bring to your attention during the bidding process and prior to applying any coatings...

  • The underlying coatings have been applied incorrectly therefore will need to stripped off in order for the paint to adhere and give you lasting quality.
  • Oil based paint is currently on the surface. We will have to completely prime the entire surface with oil based primer - sealer or apply an oil based paint over the existing coating.
  • It appears to be unclear what type of paint was previously used. We will do a paint test to determine if it is acrylic (latex) based or oil (alkyd) based. This way we are sure to apply the applicable product.
  • The plaster is peeling off in sheets. This is due to a plaster finish that was not cured out properly prior to the paint products being applied. We will do a PH test to measure the moisture content to determine what primer to use in order to eliminate this problem in the future.

This type of attention to detail -- before and after -- guarantees you the highest quality finished product.
