 Park Slope Office Tile Floor Restoration

Compass is a real estate company with a purpose whose mission is to help everyone find their place in the world. "With the solutions-driven mindset of a startup and the sophistication of a luxury brand, Compass is the future of real estate," according to its website. Founded in New York City, Compass now has offices coast to coast, and the Brooklyn real estate office in the Park Slope neighborhood called us in because they understand the importance of first impressions underfoot in their conference room. We diligently removed old white paint from this classy small square tile floor, then repainted it jet black for an elegant edge in a contemporary meeting space. Buying and selling real estate in the Big Apple is serious business with some serious price tags, and Compass values the high quality workmanship, reliability and experience that Paintworks & Decorating delivers.

Take decades of paint off your doors and window frames to see the beauty underneath

Stripping Paint to Reveal Distinctive Quality of Metal Doors and Window Frames. Metal doors, windows, and frames from yesteryear have all too often been painted over and over and over. As time marches on, the paint coats actually diminish the appearance of what was once fine metal craftsmanship. It’s a laborious task to remove paint layers, especially when they number in the dozens – that’s plural dozens, like somewhere between two and 50 coats of paint. Leave it to Paintworks & Decorating to take on such a monumental task stripping old metal doors and door frames and restoring their former glory.

 Metal-smithing is an ancient skill and art form beginning with crude implements and advancing across centuries to ornate architectural pieces, jewelry, coins, locks and more. Painting over metal was often done for convenience or to match or contrast with a specific decor color. Our client wanted to restore the metalwork for its beauty and authenticity. Metal doors can add real charm to your home as a headboard, art piece or function as a real door. The Big Reuse in Brooklyn is a non-profit store for salvaged and surplus building materials, and you can find interesting old metal pieces at Olde Good Things, Met Metals, Old Iron Architectural Salvage and Demolition Depot and Irreplaceable Artifacts.

When something in metal catches your eye, remember that Paintworks can restore it, paint it, re-paint it, strip it, oil it and refresh it for a conversation piece that you'll cherish for a long time.
