OK.... You look around your place and you know that you would really like to freshen up the walls. But, in this economy, it’s hard to think of hiring a Pro.

Why is it that I want to do this?......

Who Am I? And just what is my experience?

Hi, my name is Paul Zemit and I have been a Painting & Decorating Contractor for over 33 Years in the Chicago Area. I am also a US Patent Holding Inventor. 

I just need to figure things out. 

I put that attitude into my Decorating Business and because of that, I have been able to help my Clients much more effectively… Here's just one small example - 

One of my Clients had a Love Seat in the kids room. It had a broken metal leg. They didn't know how to get it fixed.  I just happened to know a small welding shop and was able to get it repaired for them - No Charge to the Client. I took the opportunity to be helpful to my Client. They seemed to like that about me.  

I have found the same availability of The Right People with just about everything. 

There is always someone around with the right stuff. We just have to find 'em.

And that is what I'm going to help you with - Finding The Right Stuff.

And living in the Chicago Area has given me a very broad range of Construction Materials to work with .... 

From Plaster to Drywall, Wall Coverings to Venetian Plasters,.... if it’s interior work, I've done it. And for most of my career, I've worked by myself......

That means that I had to move all of that furniture myself. Not to mention all of the set up and clean up of most jobs. I have found many ways to make my work very efficient and clean.

My work has also taken me from Chicago to Florida to Texas to

Vancouver Island, BC, Canada and back to Chicago.

about Plaster Drywall Repair And Painting,
I am going to Pass On To You!

Come on in, let Plaster-Drywall-Repair-And-Painting

Show You How…

First, let’s take a look at some Common Concerns:

What problems should we look for?

What are the right tools to use?

How do we do Plaster Repair in that hole in the Plaster or Drywall?

How do we Repair the plaster around a switch or outlet without getting shocked or turning off the power, using The Outlet Plastering Safety Shield ?

Why do those marks keep coming through the paint and what can we do about them?

Why should we use a primer in Preparation and which primer is the right one to use?

How can we get straight paint lines like a Pro?

What is the Right Paint to use? And why?

Now, Let’s see what to do about it…

How much would it cost for a Pro to Fix It?  

Let’s figure that out together.

Should you Hire a Pro – Or Do It Yourself?

If you want to hire a Pro, here’s what to look for: 

Start with a seasoned veteran, 15 - 20 years of experience. He/She will know the special problems to look for. This person may cost a little more up front, but their knowledge is well worth it and the work will last a lot longer. 

The Best way to find a Pro is to go to your local Paint Store and ask them for a referral. Normally, they will give you 2 or 3 names for you to call. Call each one and have them come and take a look at what you want them to do. They should then give you an “Estimate” of what the work should cost. Then you can decide which one you should hire.
