Since 1985, our annual “Best of New York” issue has named standout services, unique shops, and special spots in dozens of categories. Now that Curbed is part of New York’s family, we have reimagined “Best of New York” as an ever-expanding resource that could rival Yelp in usefulness but feels more like a secret Google doc that gets passed among friends. To find the places recommended on these lists, we polled hundreds of stylish and savvy New Yorkers and begged them to tell us their go-tos. The result: our own Yellow Pages, containing only excellent places.
In addition to our Airless-Spray Fine Finish Method that is applied through our sophisticated and highly expensive Machines, we make sure that every mandatory process is applied to the cabinets to make them more durable and last longer, and of course to receive the brand-new and smooth final finish. Processing includes the sanding of the wood, decrease and de-gloss, denoted alcohols, Air-Pressure Dust Removal, etc. as well as several times of sanding with 200-400-800 fine finish grits, in between each coat of Prime and Paints as well as sealants on the final topcoat.

The purpose of a good painting contract is not to "crush" the homeowner in court, but the real purpose should be to prevent disputes in the first place by clearly telling your customer what you are doing for them under the terms of your contract to paint their home and by preventing unrealistic expectations from sabotaging your job.... and residential painting contracts should not scare your customers with obscure "legalize."  The goal should be to stop unnecessary arguments with your customer about the work BEFORE they happen. Customer dissatisfaction impacts your reputation in the area you do business in and also hurts your referral business. Don't run your business with "bald tires" when it is so easy to get a professional and protective Residential, House Painting Contract from ACT Contractors Forms.

Mark Uriu originally trained as a fine artist, and it shows: He specializes in the specific, from faux finishes (trompe l’oeil, faux marble) and gilding to distressed wall finishes. He was also recommended five times over — Spencer Bailey and Andrew Zuckerman, the co-founders of the Slowdown, describe him as “the go-to in certain high-end architect circles,” and architect Stephanie Goto, who has designed spaces for the Calder Foundation and Hauser & Wirth, says, “He is one of these people we never speak about but is integral to our practice.” Writer Zibby Owens told us Uriu painted her childhood bedroom in a light-blue sponge design she was so obsessed with that years later, she hired him to paint her entire Upper East Side apartment. When they got to her kitchen, she handed him and his partner a spatterware place mat as inspiration. “They used a little brush to painstakingly mimic splatter paint,” she says. “My kids and I sat around and watched — it was like watching Jackson Pollock.”

New Yorkers know style perhaps better than anyone else, which is why wallpaper is making a big comeback in both modern and traditional-style New York homes. There’s no limit to what you can do with wallpaper in the city when you apply designs that feature stunning cityscapes, iconic historical landmarks, sleek lines, or era-specific patterns. In New York, you can also choose textured wall coverings that add dimension and drama to your walls in a way that paint alone simply can’t.

The health and safety of our painters and customers is Paintzen’s top priority. It also remains a priority for us to support our local paint contractor partners across the country during this unprecedented time. Because home renovations have been deemed “non-essential” many painters on our platform are without work. To help our partners get back in business as soon as it is declared safe to do so, we are announcing our Book Now, Schedule Later policy.
