Historic Home Restoration: How a Professional Painter Can Help
The San Francisco Bay area is famous around the world for its architecture, and many of our homes have become landmarks for their classic beauty and creative charm. While owning a historic home in Oakland or the San Francisco area is something to enjoy and to be proud of, the effects of time can be a challenge. When a historic home is starting to show its age, how can you restore it? What services would a professional painter have to make it glow with health and beauty again?
When wooden surfaces on your home exterior have deteriorated, an experienced painting company can restore them. It takes special skill and knowledge to be able to remove and replace damaged sections in a way that will match the rest of the home. Also, there are wood fillers and other techniques that can be used to halt and reverse the effects of time.
Your exterior paint doesn’t just beautify your historic home; it protects it from weather and insects that would otherwise cause it to crumble. An experienced painting contractor will use high-quality primers and exterior paints to make sure your home is thoroughly preserved from the deleterious effects of nature.
Authentic Historic Colors
While many of today’s trendy colors are vibrant and attractive, the most fitting color choices for a historic home are those that are authentic to the period when it was designed.
One way that a professional painter can discover the original color of your historic house is by carefully removing subsequent layers of paint, like an archaeologist! This can be done without leaving visible damage on the surface.
A painter who is experienced with historic restorations in the San Francisco area also has other tools for keeping colors authentic. For example, their work on other homes in the area will inform their recommendations. Also, the architecture and style of our region has been very well documented, so there are many photographs, paintings, descriptions, and other resources to help get the look just right.
