The City of Albany has many different requirements for not only landlords looking for their ROP's, but also of home owners. What a lot of people don't know is that their is a difference between your historic overlay district and your historic renovations.
When you have a Historic building being painted in the City of Albany, you will need to find out if you are possibly just in a historic overlay district. If this is the case although there are restrictions, they are not as stringent should it be a full historic renovation. With a simple lead test and submittle to the city of your color choice you should be good to go upon approval
Now for histroic renovations, the City will not only require a lead test, but you will also have to have the color go through the city's historic board for full approvals. If this project is looking for certified historic tax credits, this final color and application will also have to be certified by a third party.
If any of this is still confusing, don't hesitate to give us a call to walk you through it!
Many cracked masonry surfaces can look beyond repair. Not only are they unsightly but they can also be dangerous. As cracks begin to grow due to freezing, the mortar and pieces of the brick can begin to fail. These failures will result in brick and pieces of concrete that are unstable and unattached to any real surface.
One way to repair this is to remove all the failing pieces of masonry all together. This could be by taking our bricks or using a jackhammer to remove some concrete. Once removed you can replace it with the look and style of block you would like.
Tiny cracks can be resealed with concrete NP1 grouts and sealants and for finishing touches we recommend suing a specified epoxy or coating to make sure this doesn't happen again. The right Albany NY Concrete Contractor can help with all major repairs that we couldn't. And with the right epoxy you can make sure these masonry repairs will be your last for some time.
What makes a home look better than giving the exterior a good spruce up? Most people would think they would need to pay to have the entire exterior ripped off and replaced with a new set of either vinyl or cement siding. This is typically not the case, you can always paint it to look as good as new!
Over there years they have had many advancements in paint! Sherwin Williams and other Paint companies have all types of surfaces with all types of paint, just sitting outside exposed to the elements so they can better determine which ones hold up to the test of time and weather. When looking to get the exterior house all spruced up, call a paint contractor, and when you need the outside to start matching the newly painted home, call your top Schenectady Landscaping company.
No DIY project within the construction industry is more popular than painting. In my years in construction it is not uncommon for even commercial clients to save room in their budget by bringing the whole family and keg to the office and paint on the weekends.
This approach for many can be an effective way to save a few dollars in the interim, but if you spent tens of thousands of dollars installing the proper HVAC, rewiring next lights and outlets, hanging new designer fixtures and installing a beautiful new rug; do you really want let all that money go to waste with a improper paint job?
For the skilled DIY'ers this can be a great alternative, but for those who would do best to focus on their day to day business, it may be a better idea to hire a local painting contractor, or at the very least get a few estimates.
You wouldn't build your home and not put on a roof would you? Maybe not as dramatic, but protect the investment you made into your look, hire a local contractor.
