“I want to thank you and your staff for making the project of restoring the woodwork and shingles on our house such a pleasant experience. My wife and I are so thankful to have found you and your delightful crew. Due to our apprehension to find a contractor that would put in the love and care that the house deserves we delayed making a commitment and made the job that much more difficult. We have worked with many contractors and Old World craftsmen over the years and we have to say you are the best painting and wood restoration firm we have worked with. Your men were professional, courteous, punctual and showed an obvious concern for the integrity of their work. These are such rare qualities to find! Thank you for seeing the job through on time and on budget, even in the face of adversity and surprises in the project. It’s a pleasure working with you and I can certainly recommend your services without qualification.”
Best Regards, Bill Guerin, Mill Valley, CA

The brown home in the first picture is a product of over application covering up the natural wood appearance and making the siding look shiny. We did a sample using a biodegradable paint and varnish remover (pictures 2 and 3 above). We then stripped the entire house to its natural wood look and re-stained using a blend of TWP. The developer was so relieved when he found out we had a solution to the problem!
