Exterior Home Painter New York City

When the weather is amazing there is no better project than painting the outside of a house. This house in Brooklyn hadn’t been painted in over 30 years and paint had started to fail off in bunches. We started by stripping all the failing paint areas as power washing would’ve damaged the house siding. Using a boom lift we were able to reach all areas of the house and paint with precision. The client chose a bold color that looks makes the house look completely new! We love the direction they chose and were very happy to help them. The finished product made the client literally say “Wow!” Very grateful to be an exterior painter in the Park Slope and Prospect Park area.

Brooklyn Retail Painting Adidas Logo in Williamsburg

When this property management company called us they were looking to rent out the new commercial space they just built in Williamsburg. They wanted to show Adidas they would be right at home in this Flagship location. We were there the next day to paint the classic Adidas logo on the wall in one day. Impressing both the management and Adidas as they ended up renting the space! Very fun and cool project! Very grateful we had this opportunity.

Painting Building Stairwell in Prospect Heights

While Brooklyn is the most populous of New York City's boroughs, it also offers many parks and points of interest which draw a vivid cross section of families, retired folks, internationals and working professionals of all stripes. It is a Mecca for artsy types. With all this going for it, it's no surprise to us at Paintworks that savvy property owners and management agents take seriously the paint-related maintenance of apartment buildings.

We recently painted the stairwell and hallways of a 3-story Brooklyn apartment building, which is sure to keep residents and tenants happy for having clean spaces to walk in on the way to their front doors. For this job, a semi-gloss paint was selected for being easy to wash, yet not have the glare of a full gloss paint. The semi-gloss will still reflect light, making the corridors and stairwell seem brighter and more pleasant. Semi-gloss paint also resists fading and humidity a little bit better than other choices. Addressing routine maintenance issues in a timely fashion makes good business sense, and keeping interior common walls fresh and clean contributes positively to low vacancy rates, good-natured residents and a favorable reputation for the building.

Painting Large Built-in Living Room Cabinets

Rather than remove this built in shelving unit, the new homeowner opted to fix the holes and repaint the whole thing in colors that fit them. They chose a vibrant color that makes the cabinets feel new and unique. Painting everything else with fresh white completed the transformation. 2 coats of Benjamin Moore Cabinet coat with sanding in between the coats allowed the paint to go on smooth and bond properly. Love painting cabinets all over Brooklyn and NYC.

Park Slope Home Painter

Painting in Park Slope is such an exciting experience due the gorgeous and well maintained brownstones that fill this area. We love painting brownstones inside and out. This client contacted us to repaint their garden apartment for their long time renters. The most challenging part was to paint the beautiful molding around the windows. Luckily our team has vast experience painting Park Slope homes. We used a satin finish on the trim and moldings to give it contrast against the matte finished walls. When painting Brooklyn townhouses we have to keep in mind of the historic details. The goal is to highlight the molding not to cover it up. In the end the client and our team was happy with the freshly painted interior.

Brooklyn Move In Home Painter

This couple called us right as they were closing on a beautiful 2 bedroom apartment in the heart of DUMBO. They wanted to refresh the apartment before moving in and we were happy to help. We painted the walls with Benjamin Moore Aura Super White and the trim with Benjamin Moore Aura Satin. The finished product gives off a wow factor next to the dark floors. The Super White was a great color choice with the abundance of natural light. We also removed and plastered over an unused outlet in the master bedroom to make that wall look whole again. It was great experience painting in such a cool area of Brooklyn.

Repainting the Kith Shoe Store in Park Slope

We are very proud to have painted spaces inside of the alluring KITH store in Park Slope, Brooklyn. Kith emphasizes the creative drive of New York City. The fashion boutique provides sneaker heads and fashionistas with the newest and most innovative styles known to date. To be able to contribute to the beauty of such a creative force was an honor.

Our first area to work on was the foyer. Due to ever changing seasons and promotions, the front foyer was looking a little worn. We proceeded to patch all holes in walls and ceilings left by previous window displays. We then painted the walls and ceilings with Benjamin Moore Scuff X. This paint is built to withstand high traffic. We also painted the black cashier station and painted the back hallway behind the checkout station. We used Scuff X again in the back hallway for the high amount of people running in and out of hallway carrying items. The Scuff X paint is resistant to all types of scuffs/run ins and is easily cleanable. This is the only paint ideal for retail and commercial areas. At the end of the day it was a lot of fun to paint such iconic fashion retailer in the beautiful Park Slope area.

Painting Fire Escapes in Brooklyn

Fire escapes are iconic in New York City for their solution to fire safety and for their unique architectural addition to buildings. Because fire escapes are constantly exposed to NYC's rash of outdoor elements eventually paint fails and rust start to build on them. This can lead to hazardous conditions where the metal becomes oxidized and pieces become vulnerable to breaking.  On top of the safety hazards, the oxidation and decomposition of the fire escapes make historic buildings look decrepit and unappealing. To maintain the beauty and safety of our city, Paintworks and Decorating has made it simple to restore and protect fire escapes.

Earlier this month we helped a local Co-op in Park Slope, Brooklyn, restore and paint their fire escapes. We started by grinding off all rust and failing paint. We proceed to prime it with nothing but the best, Benjamin Moore Super Spec Primer. The primer helps protect the metal while also giving the paint something to bond to. Once primed the fire escapes are given a finish coat of Benjamin Moore High Gloss Oil based paint. The paint makes the metal more resistant to water, freezing and continued oxidation. This process adds years to your fire escapes life. The finished product looks clean, new, and vibrant. Whatever issues you may be having with your fire escape we can help.

Restaurant Painter in NYC

Paintworks and Decorating is very pleased to have painted an exquisite restaurant inside 55 Water Street. To have been given the opportunity to paint and transform inside one of Brooklyn's most pristine buildings was truly a great experience for the entire team. 55 Water Street is in one of the most scenic areas of NYC and blessed with one of the best views of the East River and the Manhattan skyline. Together the Paintworks team revitalized the once bland dining area. The addition of fresh paint on the walls and ceiling created a calm and alluring environment for the patrons to relax with a coffee, a cocktail, or dinner. We even painted the planter boxes! We pride ourself on detail oriented and clean work. If you come to building, ask the employees and watch them rave about their refurbished upstairs lounge. The bar’s iconic wood and cooper decor blend perfectly with cream texture and warm lighting. Come to 55 Water Street to enjoy the sights, sounds, drinks and Paintworks gorgeous paint job.

Brooklyn HVAC Furnace Cover Painter

Everyone in NYC knows how important furnaces are to making the winters bearable but why do they always look so clunky and unattractive? No matter the age or model of your HVAC system we can make it look beautiful while making it virtually disappear into the wall. That is what we did last month when we repainted an entire apartment in the Greenpoint area of Brooklyn. The client chose a clean distinguished matte black color for the walls. In order to get the giant furnace covers to blend in we first needed to ensure that this shade of black was going to bond with the metal of the cover. We used an electrostatic sprayer that utilizes electrically charged particles to ensure that the paint bonded to the covers with a complete and even coating. At the end of the day it took 5 coats of paint to get the furnace to look like what you see below. The covers were a little bit of challenge but that made it fun and the beautiful finished product worth it!

 
Now the furnace cover blends in perfectly with the black matte paint job.

Brooklyn Painter: Charming Apartment in Ditmas Park

Ditmas Park New Home Painter

Buying a home is a big deal. The moment you step foot into that new home with the new keys in your hand is a moment of surreal excitement you will never forget. You also want that feeling to last as long as possible. One way to make it last is with a fresh coat of new paint.

We've painted many homes in Brooklyn but it was an honor to paint an apartment for the nicest couple in Ditmas Park. Located in a beautiful neighborhood just south of Prospect Park, the new homeowners loved their new home but it was missing something. Shortly after closing on the place they realized it was missing a beautiful fresh coat of paint to match the fresh start of owning a home. They chose Benjamin Moore's Super White paint to brighten up an apartment that recently had gorgeous renovations completed. The Super White made the entire place look and feel refreshed while showing just how big this apartment really is!

Repainting the interior of this Brooklyn home also gave us time the chance to fix any drywall imperfections. Clean lines makes the refreshed space stand out against the hardwood floors.
