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.
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.”
Over the years, New York City has seen its share of hurricanes, blizzards, floods, tornadoes, droughts, and extreme temperatures. New Yorkers know that you have to be ready for anything to live here, which is also true for the exterior paint you choose. The Big Apple gets an average of 46.23 inches of rain per year and sees precipitation on about 121 days annually. Therefore, your exterior house paint needs to be as tough as you are so that you don’t need to call us back for touch-ups or repairs for a long time.
