Strongsville, OH, March 23, 2008 --(PR.com
)-- A summer long project has finally come to an end with exceptional outcome. The Roe- Chapman house at the Strongsville Historical society in Strongsville Ohio has been successfully restored to its original glory. This Dutch Colonial Revival house that was built in 1904 needed some TLC to bring it back to life and who better than Jaworski Coatings Inc out of Elyria Ohio to do it.
Upon the initial look at the house Matt Jaworski owner of Jaworski Coatings knew that this was going to require some long days, hard work, and a lot of material.
The first step in restoring this old beauty was to strip off the existing layers of lead paint. The crew at Jaworski Coatings spent four days applying Peel- Away 1, an environmentally safe lead paint stripper. This product is applied as a thick paste then encapsulated with a plastic-laminated paper, after 48 the paper is peeled off, removing the lead paint and exposing the bare wood. The Roe- Chapman house took 200 gallons in Peel-Away 1 to remove the multiple layers of paint.
With the old paint off and the bare wood exposed, now came the daunting task of selecting a color scheme that would take the 1904 home back in time. Armed with old photos, and color samples Karen; the historian for the Strongsville Historical society and Marie Jaworski; color specialist for Jaworski Coatings went to work.
The once all white home is now rich with a color scheme taken straight out of history. The body of the home is a light gray with all of the shake siding painted a dark green. With white on all of the trim and a deep maroon red accenting all the windows. The Dutch Colonial Rival is now an eye catcher. All paint is the highest quality Duration from Sherwin Williams ensuring that this restoration will last for many years to come.
