he choice of paint and paint colors in historic buildings helped define the original mood or spirit for that building.  Many historic buildings express themselves uniquely with their interior paint finishes.

The wide variety of historic painting projects that we will undertake in our restoration projects include 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 paint preservation, rehabilitation or restoration. Proper handling or abatement is important with old paints, as many of the paints used prior to 1978 contained lead. Once it is determined whether one is attempting preservation, rehabilitation or restoration of the paint, we work with specialists who employ sophisticated equipment to determine the necessary details to ensure a quality, long-lasting paint job.
