(St. Louis – March 2010) The Painting and Decorating Contractors of America (PDCA) selected John Neill Painting & Decorating to receive a Residential Exterior Picture It Painted Professionally (PIPP) Award for their entry titled, ”Victorian Mansion, Berwyn, PA”. Projects qualify by integrating the exceptional use of color, innovation, specialty finishing techniques, safety compliance, technical skill(s), creativity, project difficulty, and superior execution. Entries may be submitted in ten (10) categories, which are Residential Interior, Exterior, and Wallcoverings; Industrial; Commercial Interior, Exterior, and Wallcoverings; Decorative Finishes; Restoration; and Charity Projects. Each project entry must have been completed by an active PDCA member in good standing.
Selected as the PIPP Winner for Residential Exterior John Neill Painting and Decorating completed a project servicing the exterior entry of a Victorian Mansion in Berwyn, PA. Two aspects of the project provide specific challenges. The homeowners wanted the paint to reflect the trends associated with the era of the home’s construction. Additionally, the home has a large tower the presented application challenges. The tower was painted the same color as the third floor gables helping it to stand out against the remainder of the house. First and second floor levels were painted with different colors. The end result is a reflection of what the home might have looked like years ago and a very satisfied customer.
The award was bestowed earlier this year during the PDCA Awards Program at the association’s Paint and Coatings Expo (PACE) mega convention and trade show in Phoenix. “PDCA is excited to recognize John Neill Painting & Decorating for their exceptional work.”, Richard Greene, PDCA CEO, Stated.
