Plastering and Painting To Revive A Home In Manhattan

When this client called us her apartment was in bad shape. After not painting or repairing the plaster in her home for over 40 years everything started to fail. Paint was falling from everywhere. Adding to the situation was water damage from the apartment above. We spent multiple days scraping and carefully disposing off all the failing paint and plaster. We were surprised to discover wallpaper underneath the paint (seen in the 2nd picture below). The client didn’t know there was wallpaper there! We then spent multiple days priming and plastering the entire apartment to return it to it’s former glory. You can see the dramatic transformation, especially in the bathroom picture below. These pictures were taken at the 70% mark of the project. While we always recommend addressing paint issues as they arise, it is never too late to save your home.

After living in their condo for 2 years this client wanted to refresh the place with new colors, patched holes, to make the place feel new again.

The super of the building recently removed the non-working intercom phone leaving a gapping hole in the living room wall. We were able to completely patch and plaster the hole so you can’t even tell it was there in the first place. After caulking around the windows and plastering the other cracks the place was ready for painting. Using fresh rollers and proper technique we repainted their accent wall to show seamless color. The previous paint job showed major flashings which distracted the eye from the tv the wall was situated on. We painted the bathroom with Benjamin Moore Aura Bath & Spa to ensure longevity in the hot humid environment that is a bathroom. Always grateful to paint beautiful Upper West Side apartments.

Painting Historic Ornamental Railings in Upper West Side, Manhattan

The Upper West Side of Manhattan is home to beautiful designed buildings with ornate and historic details. When this client contacted us they were looking to revive their historic ornamental second floor railing. It was rusting and in need of rescuing. As experience exterior metal painters in NYC we first covered the ground below and behind the railing. We spent the first day grinding off rust and failing coatings. When grinding historic and beautiful railings it is important not to rush. Each curve of the railing needs to be considered. After grinding we applied the great product Rust Destroyer which eliminates rust while also providing a base coat on the metal. Last step we painted the railing with 2 finish coats of UV resistant industrial coatings. It was quite a joy to see the beautiful finished product. We are grateful to be one of the go-to painting companies when it comes to grinding and painting metal railings in Manhattan.

Plastering and Painting In The Upper West Side

Back in May we had the opportunity to help a new homeowner refresh their apartment before moving in. The beautiful historic building in the Upper West Side was starting to show its age. Much of the ceiling plaster was cracking and failing. We carefully scraped all damaged and failing areas of the ceiling. We then primed the surfaces, re plastered and painted the entire apartment. The client chose a great wall color that goes well with the white soffits throughout the apartment.

Manhattan Interior Painting

Last week we had the amazing opportunity to paint a few rooms and the kitchen cabinets of a gorgeous apartment near the water on Manhattan's Upper West Side. The apartment has beautiful molding and brilliant accents on the walls and ceilings. We were honored when they chose us to paint their place. We wanted the paint job to match this high-end classy apartment. The bottom picture shows the kitchen cabinets painted with Benjamin Moore Decorator's White.  We strive to be the best painting company in the Upper West, NYC, and the surrounding area. We do this by giving anyone that calls us a free quote or free advice, honest and transparent answers from real people.

Upper West Side Manhattan Bathroom Painter

When repainting bathrooms there are multiple factors to consider. After the color choices have been narrowed down it is time to consider the lighting of the bathroom. Is there natural light? What kind of glow are the light bulbs giving off? Warm and yellow? Or cool and white? Once the color samples are held or swatched to the wall in all various types of light and at different times of the day the next factor to consider is the durability of the paint. We always recommend Benjamin Moore Aura Bath and Spa that is specially formulated to withstand the everyday heat and humidity of a bathroom. If the bathroom doesn't feature a shower/tub or a different type of paint is chosen just be sure that the room can be ventilated properly so that no bubbles in the paint form. We recently repainted a hallway half bathroom in a brand new building in the Upper West Side. The client chose a striking Farrow & Ball paint color that contrasts very well with the ceiling and the mirror wall. We have been painting apartment bathrooms in NYC for over 25 years but this is one of our favorites because of the modern distinguished look and feel of the space.
