March 12th, 2019 We are Master Certified Painters!

We have exciting news! Last month we became one of thirteen Fine Paints of Europe Master Certified painters in the United States, and the only Master Certified painting company in Louisiana. We are incredibly proud to part of this elite class of skilled artisans and to represent such high quality paint products. 

In order to be Master Certified, we had to be nominated by a Fine Paints of Europe local retailer and prove to be a professional of good character. Fine Paints of Europe also requires a minimum of five years of experience working with their products. 

The nominated painting contractors then attend a training session in Woodstock, Vermont. During this part of the certification process, select contractors learn all about Fine Paints of Europe products, as well as the best applications for each of them. As the website explains, the “Master Painters designation is for tradesmen and women that have demonstrated a level of craftsmanship and professionalism that clearly separates them from all others.”

For homeowners, this is an excellent, informative way to know that a master-certified contractor is a well-established company with many years of experience. It also informs clients that they are dealing with reputable and accountable painters, since one must prove one’s worthiness before even being nominated. In other words, it means that you, your family, and your project are in good hands.

September 28th, 2018 How Paint Can Preserve History

New Orleans celebrated its 300th birthday this year. In the city’s 300 years of history, several distinctive styles of architecture found their way into the Big Easy. Grand, off-white homes with undertones of grey evoke the beauty of French chateaus. Warm brickwork, broad porches, and towers nod to the British Queen Anne style of architecture. Rectangular, towered homes in shades of earth tones characterize the Italianate style. And crisp, true white, columned mansions speak to Green Revivalism. With century-old homes, care, expertise, and a very gentle touch help us preserve history. In a city built on a swamp that has survived hurricanes, floods, and dramatic temperature changes, historical preservationists work hard to combat the elements and preserve the character of historical homes.
