Holtz Team Updates Retail Boutique with New Paint

Nancy Hartt called on H.J. Holtz & Son when she opened her fashion boutique eight years ago for painting and wallpapering. It was only logical that she would call on the Holtz team again for a recent refresh.

“They’re the most trustworthy people of all time,” she says. “They are accommodating, and if something goes wrong, Rick Holtz has someone here within 24 hours.”

Residential Painting & Carpentry, Preparing for Historic Garden Week

Laura Strickler admits that she enjoys being a do-it-yourselfer.

“I’m confident in my own decorating skills, and I like to paint,” she says. “But I knew I couldn’t do all this.”

“All this” refers to the improvements Strickler wanted to complete before April 26, 2022, when her house will be open to the public during Garden Club of Virginia’s Historic Garden Week.

Strickler says her needs were varied: a refresh on interior walls, repainted kitchen cabinets, and a full exterior paint job – plus accumulated carpentry fixes. Because she had worked with H.J. Holtz & Son on a smaller job years ago, she felt comfortable calling the company again.

Fixing Painting and Wallpapering Problems – We Always Find a Way

H.J. Holtz & Son Production Manager Kelly Kutchey recalls a recent project in which the Holtz team was hired to correct painting problems in a brand-new house.

“The builder hired a painter for cost-efficiency, and we were called later to fix all sorts of issues,” he said. “The painter hadn’t properly prepared the trim for painting by filling in nail holes and caulking; some areas also clearly weren’t primed. Trim work should always be [painted] using a nice brush; this house trim was painted with a thick roller … it looked like it had 40 coats of paint. The homeowner wasn’t happy.”

A Thorough Preparation Process is Critical for a Successful Outcome

The old adage about how a little effort at the start of a project can prevent problems down the line holds true when it comes to painting and wallpapering your home.

H.J. Holtz & Son Production Manager Kelly Kutchey says the preparation process that goes into every job is designed to create a seamless execution and a happy outcome for everyone –especially the client.

Richmond Interior Designer’s Book Features Holtz Projects

Local interior designer Janie Molster – a frequent partner with H.J. Holtz & Son on residential projects – says Holtz work is on display throughout her new book “House Dressing,” even if the company name is nowhere to be found.

“My editor advised me not to name vendors and business partners, because I was sure to forget someone,” she laughs. “But Holtz is basically the star of the book.”

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.”

Painting Kitchen Cabinets – What to Expect

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.

Holtz & Son’s experienced team knows how to tackle the job.
