Lacquer Paint is the Perfect Fit for This Residential Club Room

Paula Holm called H.J. Holtz & Son because her contractor said so.

Holm and her husband, George, were working with Mark Franko, of Mark Franko Custom Building, to expand their kitchen and add a club room on the lower level, similar to the one they have in their vacation home.

“I knew I wanted to do the lacquer painting,” she says. “Once we started talking about that, Mark said [Rick Holtz was] who we have to talk with. Honestly, we didn’t even consider anyone else. They’re so knowledgeable.”

Hiring Carpenters and Painters

More than ever, the door is open to new employees at H.J. Holtz & Son.

With increasing demand for painting, carpentry and wallpaper services, Rick Holtz, company president of H.J. Holtz & Son, says he is reaching out to prospective employees as much as prospective customers.

“We need to keep at [hiring] consistently,” Holtz says, noting that the greatest pressure is in the carpentry division, which has expanded dramatically over the last two years.
