T
he choice of historic coatings such as paint, lime wash or more decorative coatings in historic buildings often helped define the original aesthetic and spirit for that structure.  Many historic buildings express themselves uniquely with their utilization of interior and exterior historical finishes.

The wide variety of historic coatings projects that we will undertake in our restoration projects include mineral solutions that allow the natural breathability of the material, encaustic painting, graining and marbleizing, decorative painting, fresco, and trompe l’oeil.

Proper assessment and diagnosis is a key first step to a successful quality historic coating preservation, rehabilitation, or restoration. In addition, proper handling or abatement is important with historic coatings, as many of the paints used prior to 1978 contained lead or other hazardous materials.

Once it is determined whether one is attempting preservation, rehabilitation, or restoration of the coating, our specialists employ sophisticated equipment to determine the necessary details to ensure a quality, long-lasting and historically appropriate product.
