Doors ~ Restoration and Refinishing
The front facade is the first impression that visitors and passers-by often get of your home, and the focal point of this first look is usually the entrance. So a great looking door is an essential part of your home making a good impression. Old Village Master Painters has enhanced many fine homes, from new construction to historic restorations, with beautiful finishes for the doors, windows, shutters, and other elements.
Stripped, repaired and repainted ~12 window sashes for original double-hung windows on 110 year old house, stripped repainted and weather stripped 2 doors, and repainted walls and ceilings of three rooms..... We are supremely satisfied!
New EPA Lead Threshold Standards Proposed!
The Environmental Protection Agency on June 22, 2018 proposed to lower the dust-lead hazard standards on floors and window sills. These standards apply to most pre-1978 housing and child-occupied facilities, such as day care centers and kindergarten facilities. press release
Restore ~ Don't Replace
Beautiful Glass paned doors, solid wood doors (and windows), oversize and odd shaped doors all are part of the character of your home. Maybe the paint is chipped or the hinges are loose and you're thinking about replacing them. But they just don't make doors like these anymore so why not restore? Old Village can remove the old paint (even lead paint), repair as necessary and give them a superior new finish - often at a cost comparable to replacement.
Introducing EnveloStrip™ Proprietary Paint and Finish Removal Process!
Many older homes have interior and exterior doors with multiple layers of old paint or varnish. We can remove these old paints and finishes off-site using our proprietary EnveloStrip™ Paint Removal Process.
EnveloStrip™ is a new process that we developed to remove Paint, Varnishes, Lacquer, Shellac and other Finishes from interior, exterior and garage doors.
EnvelloStrip is NOT Dip-n-Strop ~ It is Environmentally Friendly and Safe for Wood.
Work is done off-site at our facility to eliminate any mess at your home. We can easily handle oversize doors and windows, and homes with large numbers of doors and windows as is common in the older homes in Chestnut Hill and the Main Line.
Old Village does not use hazardous Methylene Chloride
