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.
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.”
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.”
Villanueva, who works on both interior and exterior jobs, enjoys detail painting work the most. The thorough training he’s received also supports the company’s attention to detail.
Unusual residential painting jobs come to us all the time. Our crews find them challenging and fun, so we almost always figure out a way to make the client happy!
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.

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.
On Saturday, March 2, a team of more than 30 people representing H.J. Holtz & Son joined with other volunteers from the Richmond chapter of the Painting and Decorating Contractors of America (PDCA) to do what they do best: paint a space.
Residents of the recently renovated Hudson Lofts building enjoy exposed historic brick walls and wood beams along with expansive windows. And beautiful painted elements executed by H.J. Holtz & Son. A former tobacco warehouse, the Hudson is located on Richmond’s South Side, in the rapidly evolving Manchester neighborhood. Working with a design firm that conceptualized the graphics and paint scheme, Acorn Sign Graphics turned to Holtz to bring the plan to life.
