The Perfect Pair to Build or Renovate Your Home

See how House Doctors and 360 Painting work together to transform the amazing building and homes in our city

If you’re looking for the best home services businesses to help produce the dream vision of your home,  Mark Boyd and Taylor Simmons have banded together to head House Doctors and 360 Painting, the perfect pair of home services companies to help build or renovate your dream space.  

Mark purchased House Doctors and became owner and manager in January of 2011. Having previously been in the automotive industry for 25 years, Mark was looking to provide a better service to the public. “The service industry needed qualified repair services through trusted contractors,” and Mark decided to stand up to the plate. He had a goal of building customer relationships and creating wonderful spaces for his community.  

As for Taylor, home services have always been his main career. Before joining House Doctors and becoming the owner and manager of 360 Painting in Augusta, Taylor worked long hours for great money,  but it wasn’t fulfilling. Now, “I get to feel proud about the product and stand by it,” says Taylor. There’s a  sense of accomplishment. He can go for a drive and look around, seeing how his work has made the neighborhoods and city more beautiful.  

In November of 2021, Mark and Taylor became official partners, and together, they set the home service industry on fire! House Doctors and 360 Painting are the top 2 home services under the Premium Services brand and have won Franchise of the Year twice, both in 2021 and 2022! 

They can do it all for you – kitchen and bathroom remodels, drywall repair, power washing, door and window installation, low volt electric work, deck work… you name it! House Doctors has an on-call handyman service that will assess and fix all your small projects like blinds, picture hanging, ceiling fans,  and those alike. They also have an Aging in Place service that provides specific repairs and maintenance for the elderly. Installing grab bars and outdoor ramps are just a couple of things they can do for you and your loved ones. With 360 Painting, they partner with all the leading paint brands which contribute to their work always looking the absolute best, and both businesses utilize virtual estimates for the really small projects. You could snap a picture of that small, accidental hole you made in the wall, send it over,  and have 360 Painting or House Doctors assess it for you! 

Both businesses also participate in a number of local charities. House Doctors and 360 Painting have provided trucks for food delivery for the Bridge Ministry of the CSRA for many years. Furthermore, they plan to join up with Kids Lift in 2024 which is a charitable program under the Premium Services Brand. 

If you asked Mark and Taylor what their secret to a great service is, their answer is conversation, not confrontation. “Construction is a difficult business, it’s frustrating, and we’re invading their space, so we try to make it as pleasant as possible… We don’t leave until they’re happy,” says Mark Boyd. Construction can be tough. As Mark and Taylor discuss, they’re being invited in and invade the customer’s space in order to have their dream uncovered. There is a tremendous amount of trust that must be built. Mark and Taylor make sure to always strengthen that trust with the customer, so they can deliver the best possible product.
