Yorkville Manhattan Skim Coating, Carpentry, and Painting

When this client contacted us they just purchased beautiful apartment in the Upper East Side. They were moving back into Manhattan after spending a few years in Nassau County. They were excited to be back in the Big City and looking to create an apartment that matched this excitement. The apartment needed a lot of work. Luckily the owners has an amazing eye for detail and design and was not afraid to go bold. The crowning touch was his choice of black for new crown molding and the ceiling. Talk about interior elegance! Black has always been associated with strength and power with splashes of mystique and rebellion.

The vacant rectangular room had an awesome rustic clay brick floor-to-ceiling wall and fireplace, dull floors, 2 vertical windows and common white walls in need of a good paint job. The ceiling met the wall in undecorated 90-degree angles. Embedding crown molding into this unadorned space instantly enhanced the room. Sanding and refinishing the floors brought luster and sheen back to them. We then skim coated the walls for an even texture and to make it possible to install crown molding. Once the crown molding was installed we moved to painting. We expertly painted both the ceiling and the new crown molding in jet black. Adding gold drapes and a charcoal gray sofa created a uniquely gracious space which evokes a cozy tranquility amidst the dazzling excitement of city life. We were thrilled to participate in this transformation that embraces the natural world in wood and brick and refined lifestyle statement of exquisite black, pristine white and regal gold

Gramercy Park Home Painter

In effort to sell this property in a timely fashion Halstead Realty and the owners decided to freshen up the place with a paint job so the property would show better. The NYC apartment hadn’t been painted in over 20 years and it showed. One day of intense plastering and painting got the condo back to near mint condition. The client chose Benjamin Moore Decorator’s White which works perfectly with the condo’s large living room windows. We always use Benjamin Moore Aura Bath and Spa in the bathroom to help protect the walls and ceiling from heat and humidity. We’re always grateful and happy to paint in the beautiful Union Square area.

Brooklyn Interior Painting

It's hard to beat the views of the water and the Manhattan skyline from this Williamsburg apartment. The tenants had just moved out and the owner was looking for refresh the space before the new tenants moved in. It is always fun to paint apartments in Brooklyn that have this type of view. After we plastered all holes and cracks we proceeded to paint the entire apartment in Benjamin Moore White. The giant living room windows let in tons of light that make the space look large and inviting. We were able to paint the whole place in 2 days right before the new tenants moved in. The owner had a tight timeframe and we were able to complete the move in/move out home painting just in time.

Painting A Condo Near Prospect Park

When this family called us they were looking to refresh their condo before doing some redecorating. With young children in the household the walls of the entryway were showing wear and tear. Lots of scuff marks and dirt/oil build up on the walls from constant touching and activity. We painted the entire Prospect Heights apartment, making it look new again. We painted the entryway walls with Benjamin Moore Scuff-X to help protect the walls. With the abundance of natural light in the living room, the Benjamin Moore Aura Super White looks great and super clean. We love painting homes in Prospect Heights. Each home is so unique which matches the eclectic surrounding area. We are honored to be a top painter in the Prospect Heights area.

Exterior House Painter NYC

When this homeowner called us she was looking to refresh the exterior of the home for the new renters. The house hadn't had it's stucco exterior painted in over 12 years and it was started to show. The bottom picture shows before we got started. You can see the failing paint around all the windows, the accumulation of dirt is also visible. Our first step was to rent a boom lift that would allow us to reach all corners of this house. We spent the first day power washing the entire stucco exterior. The next day was devoted to more preparation as we scraped the failing paint, plastered any holes/cracks and caulked around all windows. Once was that was completed we masked off the areas that were not to be painted. We then used professional spray machines to paint the exterior stucco walls. After spraying the stucco was completed we hand painted all window frames and shutters. The client picked a boldly beautiful red to contrast the white house. The client was in awe when she saw the finished project. It looks like an entirely new exterior to her house. Very grateful to be a part of this exterior transformation.

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.

Jackson Heights Interior Painting and Plastering

Jackson Heights is home to many historic residential buildings that are wonderfully built and preserved details. Unfortunately as time goes on and apartments constantly change hands these once fine and beautiful details become lost. Plaster starts to fail, the walls become warped and wonky. Door frames covered in 10+ coats of paint hide the once detailed frame. Good news is that all of this can be fixed. This new homeowner wanted the apartment returned to its original glory and we were happy to help. As professional plasterers and door frame strippers in Queens we immediately knew how to remedy the situation after walking the space. With our Jackson Heights skim coating team in place we began the 4 day process of giving all walls and ceilings of the apartment a Level 4 treatment. Level 4 is 3-4 layers of compound applied to the surfaces to give a smooth look and feel, replacing any current texture. The bottom picture shows a bedroom during the 2nd day of plastering. While the plaster was drying we began the process of stripping all the door frames. Removing years of paint from door frames is an intensive process that takes expertise and patience. Once the paint was removed from the door frames we re-plastered around the frames to make everything look new again. With the plaster dried we sanded all walls and ceilings with fine sandpaper to ensure proper smoothness. We then primed all surfaces to ready them for the finish coats. Using 2 coats of Benjamin Moore Aura we painted the entire apartment. We loved the accent walls and door colors the client chose. Painting the furnace cover a different color from the wall is unique and worked out well. Painting historic Queens Co-ops can be a challenge but it is always worth it. We are thankful for this very involved project and the way the finished place looks.

West Village Apartment Painter

We love painting in the West Village and were excited to paint a large 2 bedroom apartment there in April. The client is an artist who wanted to add some color to her place. We painted multiple accent walls including one behind the piano to give the piano a feel that it was a part  of the wall. The shine of the piano really pops in front of the black matte. We painted the wall directly to the right of the piano to match the fireplace backsplash. It transformed the room. We painted the kitchen with Benjamin Moore Kitchen & Bath black matte to help withstand the heat and other kitchen elements. Overall it was a very fun project. The client is happy after not painting the apartment in over 8 years.

Farrow & Ball Floor Painter

This apartment inside a converted commercial building has space for such unique possibilities. This couple wanted to liven up their dinged up white wood floor. We started by cleaning the entire floor then put a primer on top. After it dried we applied the first coat of Farrow & Ball paint. After it dried we applied a second coat. You can see the difference in the middle picture. The finished product looks smooth and sleek and goes perfectly with their new kitchen cabinets and furniture. Paint has so many possibilities and capabilities. Instead of refinishing their floor they gave it a unique color and new life. We loved the opportunity to be apart of this creative remodel!

Chelsea, Manhattan Interior Painting

It was a snowy day in February when these new homeowners called us looking to paint their new place with some bold colors. They had a very tight timeframe as they had to be out of their old apartment in just 2 days. We were able to see them the same day they called us and start/finish the very next day. It was a great challenge painting their 15 foot ceilings. Their color choices were unique and colorful and matched their personalities well. It was cool to be a part of such a well designed apartment in the sleek Chelsea area.

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.

Home Painter NYC

Views of Central Park are some of the most sought after views in the city. This beautiful apartment has floor to ceiling windows facing Central Park from the north side. The views are simply stunning. Before the new homeowner moved in they wanted the apartment to feel new again. What's a great way to make an apartment feel new again? A fresh coat of paint! From top to bottom we repainted the entire apartment with Benjamin Moore Aura White. The new coat of white paint shows off how big the spaces are while taking advantage of the abundance of natural light. Clean cuts around the baseboards, columns, and chandelier were crucial. We had a great time painting this space and look forward to painting more places with spectacular views of Central Park.
