Hard work & Commitment

Hard work and a commitment to achieving the best service for the best results is the foundation of Pleasant Shade’s reputation in Alaska. Driving through town, you’ll see our work everywhere, from the many houses we’ve worked on, to Carlin Air and Ray Troll’s Studio.

Pleasant Shade is licensed, bonded and insured and offers interior and exterior painting for both residential and commercial properties. No job is too big or two small – whether your project requires just a simple ladder to get the job done or something more complex, such as scaffolding or use of an over-sized man lift, we can accommodate your needs.

Painting in Alaska isn’t exactly like painting anywhere else. With our unique and very wet climate, there are many special considerations that must be made to do the job well. The only way to really understand these unique factors is with experience, and Pleasant Shade Owner, Ran Ozan has over 18 years of experience.

Customer Testimonials

"Ran Ozan is, without a doubt, absolutely one of the best house painters I've ever encountered. He's the hardest working guy you'll ever meet. He's willing to put in the man-hours needed to get the job done right. His attention to the finest of painting details is astounding. In short you will not be disappointed when you hire Ran!"

"In 2012 I hired Ran Ozan to paint the Southeast side of our house and soffits. The weather side of the house is very large and 25-feet tall. I was very impressed by how hard a worker Ran was on this job, he thoroughly powered washed, and scraped the surfaces in prep for primer and painting. By working sometime 12-14 hours a day, he completed a difficult, challenging job in less than a week."

— Hall Anderson —

"Ran Ozan painted our home last year.  We were very pleased with the results.  Ran is a perfectionist, yet works rapidly and very professionally.  There was no debris or cleanup to deal with; rather he left the yard in an immaculate condition.  Ran is friendly, honest and very easy to work with.  He complied with all our special requests and the outcome exceeded our highest expectations.  We would highly recommend Ran to anyone who requires painting services."

"Ran Ozan did a great job on my house.  He had to be creative to reach some portions of the house, and he got the job done efficiently. I highly recommended his services!"

We begin each project by meeting with you personally at your home or business to determine exactly what it will take to get your job done. We’ll then provide you with a free detailed assessment, plan and bid so there are no surprises along the way. And then we get to work to give your new pleasant shade!

We understand how important your home or business is to you and your family and that’s why when you entrust its care to us, we take it personally. At Pleasant Shade, our goal is to improve, not intrude, so, on every project, we maintain a clean and neat site and protect all of your possessions from drips or spills. You can also trust that we will always start on time and most importantly, finish on time. And once we leave it will be like we were never there, except for your new Pleasant Shade.
