A fresh coat of paint transforms an existing space like little else. In the kitchen, cabinets are the de facto walls and need just as much attention as any other wall. New paint – either in the cabinets’ existing color or in an all-new hue – will bring life and energy to a room that gets much attention, and H.J. Holtz & Son’s experienced team knows how to tackle the job.

The H.J. Holtz & Son decorative arts team is excited to try something new.
At last fall’s International Decorative Artists League (IDAL) convention, the team – Brian Smith, Logan Porter, and Eli Smith – attended a full-day class on Diamond Coat, an epoxy resin surface that can be used for countertops, flooring, and even walls.
Professional meetings and conferences are where people go to learn from others in the same field: what works, what doesn’t, what to do. Through workshops and casual conversations, tips and tools of the trade are revealed and shared.
Last fall’s annual convention of the Middle Atlantic Council of the Painting Contractors Association (PCA) gave attendees the opportunity to hear from H.J. Holtz & Son painting company president Rick Holtz and his business coach, Bill Silverman. The two spoke in a session titled “Transforming from Plateaued and Frustrated to Growing a Profitable, Smooth-running Business.”
For the H.J. Holtz & Son decorative arts team – Brian Smith, Logan Porter and Eli Smith – attending the annual International Decorative Artists League (IDAL) conference is a highlight of their year.
The annual gathering in Charlotte, N.C., gives craftspersons a chance to learn new techniques and connect with other artisans. This year was no different as they learned a gorgeous technique to customize your home's interior.
H.J. Holtz & Son President Rick Holtz believes everyone in the company contributes to its success – and should share in that success, financially.
Shane Legano and James Draine, experienced paper hangers with H.J. Holtz & Son, are already implementing strategies they saw at the Wallcovering Installers Association annual convention last month.
Everyone knew it was a big job. Congregation Beth Ahabah’s mural was given in 1913 by the Ladies’ Auxiliary and is the focal point of the synagogue’s formal sanctuary. Spanning 30 feet end to end and reaching a height of 50 feet at its apex, the proscenium arch had cracked plaster, and faded and dirty paint. It needed repairs and repainting – a full restoration. In eight weeks’ time.
See the remarkable video and pictures of the restoration.
Summer is always a busy time for H.J. Holtz & Son, as clients explore ways to freshen or re-imagine their living spaces. To help with the added workload – as well as to cultivate a next generation of craftspeople – the company annually hires a crew of teen and young adult workers, who learn alongside Holtz’s experienced team members.
Today’s painting projects require much more than brushes, rollers and drop cloths. H.J. Holtz & Son has a range of highly specialized equipment to create the best finished product while ensuring the safety of staff and homeowners.
Every project, at its heart, is about fixing something that’s not right, says H.J. Holtz & Son President Rick Holtz. “Customers bring us their problems, and we work with them to find solutions."
