A good house exterior painter?

peeling house paintChuck emails:

We wonder if you could ask your readers for recommendations on a good house painter for the exterior of brownstone-type row houses. Someone who can also do minor repairs on the wooden cornices. Summer painting season will be here before long and we'd like to line up the job now.

Getting the jump on this sort of stuff now is a good idea because sometimes the schedules of contractors fill up fast during the spring and summer.

So... got a suggestion for Chuck and his house? Please share!

I absolutely recommend Martin Korzeniecki from Marty K's Painting (233-8016, martykspainting at yahoo dot com).

He painted my center square rowhouse two years ago. The price was great, he had great follow through, showed up when he said he would and completed the project by the time he said he would.

For the past 15 + years, I have used Alex Molczyk. There is no one better than Alex. 427-9137.

I was extremely happy with their painting job, repair of rotted soffits and repair of my porch. They also cleaned up after themselves.

Ms.Paint!!!!

She lives in Center Square and does most of our homes on lower Lancaster and the rest of CS. She also won the Historic Paint Award in Saratoga for painting a historic home a few years ago.

I don't see any reference online to a Ms. Paint! Any other details? Looking to repaint a CS townhouse. Thanks!

Much of Albany is still unofficially redlined. Arbor Hill, West Hill, parts of the South End in particular are. While official redlining is now illegal, prospective property buyers in, for example, Arbor Hill must deal with a lot more impediments when they seek to purchase property. Banks and insurance companies may force them to pay extra fees with extra paperwork. They may require a bigger downpayment, a higher interest rate, a higher credit score, and even additional cosigners even if the buyer has significant income. It's depressing the market in those areas significantly.
