Union Square Manhattan Apartment Painting

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.

Battery Park Condo Painter

Before this homeowner listed her home for sell she wanted to freshen up the place for prospective buyers. We started by removing all the wallpaper in this Downtown Manhattan condo. Once that was done we cleaned off the glue residue, primed and painted the whole place. We then refinished the flooring to really make the place sparkle. Refinishing the hardwood floor was the final step to making this apartment ready to fetch a higher price tag. With the big windows and the fresh paint the place feels bigger.

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.

NYC Interior Painter

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.

NJ Interior Home Painting

This client was moving back to Jersey City from another state and wanted to make this space feel like theirs before moving in. They chose a bold and powerful blue accent wall, unfortunately our pictures turned out poorly. Trust us the apartment turned out great. We carefully removed 2 mirrors without breaking any glass and causing any bad luck! The rest of the apartment was painted with an interior designer favorite Benjamin Moore White matte. We noticed that the window sill in the living room was looking swollen like there is a small leak in the window frame. We immediately re-caulked around the windowsill with elastomeric caulking to prevent further damage. We’re always grateful to be a go-to apartment painter in Jersey City.

Painting Kitchen Cabinets in Hoboken

We love being the go-to Hoboken kitchen cabinet painter because the client is always speechless at the results. This client had recently replaced their countertop and was looking to update the rest of the kitchen to match the new modern vibe. We quickly removed all doors and drawers fronts so we could spray them off-site with multiple coats of Benjamin Moore cabinet coat. With careful sanding in between the coats we returned to paint the built-in cabinet webbing and reinstall the doors. The difference between the before and after is so drastic the client wasn’t even sure they were the same cabinets! As Hoboken kitchen cabinet painting contractors we have seen the impact a cabinet color change can make on the whole kitchen. We are proud of this project in particular because we felt honored to be the last step in the client’s kitchen remodel.

Flatbush-Ditmas Park Condo Painter

Painting this unique 2 level townhouse in Ditmas Park was a fun weekend challenge. The client had just bought this home and was looking to paint the entire place before moving in. As experienced townhouse painters in Brooklyn we were able to paint the entire place in 2 days. There’s a huge built in bookshelf in the living room that the new owner was considering getting rid of because of it looked dingy, dirty, and old. We convinced her to let us paint it first to see if it would bring it back to life and sure enough she loved the new look of the shelf. This client has bold taste as clearly seen by the powerful accent wall in the bedroom. We love painting in the Prospect Park area because the neighborhoods are beautiful and diverse.  Always grateful to do move-in painting. Love making a new homeowner love their new home even more.

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.

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.

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.
