2016 Grand Prize Winner
Carmelo Marsala is the founder and president of innovative exterior spray painting company, Spray-Net. As a student painter limited to off-the-shelf products and the exterior substrates that could be painted, he saw there was a void to fill within the exterior painting industry. At 19 years of age and with the goal of bridging the gap between regular house painting and factory painting, Carmelo founded Spray-Net and the permanent paint solution. Using a proprietary line of custom formulated industrial-strength coatings and a specialized spraying technique, Spray-Net revamps and transforms exterior siding, stucco, brick, front and garage doors and windows on-site. In just one day, Spray-Net delivers a permanent, factory-hard finish that won’t peel and that looks absolutely brand-new, not repainted.
In 2016, Spray-Net will operate in a total of 37 franchise territories across every major city in Canada coast-to-coast from Nova Scotia to British Columbia with its sights on the US market. Read more about Carmelo and Spray-Net on our blog.
