Restoring a Place of Peace
Posted Sep 14, 2020 by Dave Scaturro
Houses of worship require a regular update and a fresh coat just as often as any other house. However, they're often unique structures mean they come with individual challenges you might not encounter while doing the same project at home. Like the place where you live, it holds important, sentimental value to every person that resides there, and you want its appearance to reflect that, but like the places where you work, you might also want it to be a draw for the new. This is why it's important to call in professionals to get your church, synagogue, or other house of worship looking its most pristine.
Professional Painters Have Been There
A good company with a fair breadth of diverse clients will likely already be quite familiar with the kind of project you might have for them, including the very specific needs a house of worship might come with, such as:
- Flexibility, in terms of schedule, to work around planned and ongoing events. If you need the space cleared out, even during what would be considered regular business hours, the painters you hire should understand and comply.
- Quality work, done quickly, so that regular activity can completely return to normal as soon as possible. Your painters should make the best of the time you give them, within reason. Let's see if we can get your sanctuary looking reverent and new by Sunday service.
- Maintained deference and safety standards around delicate fixtures, relics, and other irreplaceable objects. Whether we're talking about special altars, wood paneling or beams that are a century old, or any other fixture of your house of worship deemed important, professionals make sure they're handled with care and never painted over or subject to other "accidents" that can just come of happenstance or not knowing any better.
- Additional equipment to access high or unusual places. If your first thought on assessing what a repaint would be like is "we may have to rent scaffolding if we do this ourselves," that is your first sign that it's time to contact the pros. A good company will have their own equipment, including ridged and suspended scaffolding, that will allow them to reach vaulted ceilings and do the job safely, whether we're talking dizzying heights or walls sitting at strange, hard-to-access angles. What's more: they're already trained in how to safely use them.
