Primrose School of Blue Valley – Commercial Painting Overland Park, Kansas

  We had the great opportunity in painting the Primrose School in Blue Valley.  The finishes are a very particular design that matches one of the most premier early education private schools in the area. The trim package included oil-based paint that yields a much more elegant detail and smoother finish than many of the acrylic/latex finishes.    The oil-based finish can also cure to a harder finish, making it more durable but also is maintenance friendly because touch-ups and damage repair can be simple and non-technical. The design included a wallpaper border to make the distinguished paint finishes more child friendly and... read more

Steeplechase Multi-Family Luxury Apartments, Kansas City, Missouri

  We were lucky enough to work with Bach homes, LLC to prepare and paint the luxurious Steeplechase Apartments located in northern Kansas City. It was a pleasure to work with several project managers and superintendents that had the same mind-set at hand – high production.  We started on the first of ten four-story apartment buildings in April 2015 and finished in May of 2016.  This record-breaking production team stayed on point and had a solution for every delay that stood in our way. The project consists of 365 units in total not including two amenity laden clubhouses with pools and meeting areas that were finished with a level of detail that is usually reserved for a custom home.

Interior Commercial Painting, Kansas City, Kansas

The renovations of 17 year-old design has started in a dentist office in Kansas City, Kansas.   Smiles by design’s new owner decided his practice needed a new look. The first phase of this project was to seal the original wallpaper and then apply joint compound over the seams…then onto painting.   This is an industry specific process that eliminates the need for the laborious task of trying to strip the wallpaper off the wall and our typical process when homeowners hire us to remove wallpaper.  It saves a very messy and classically expensive step in the process of finishing wallpapered walls. Second and third phases will include but most likely not limited to, replacing and painting the doors and removing and re-finishing the floors. Before and after photos are shown below, please give us a call if you have wall paper that is no longer in style or design. (816) 935-3000.   BEFORE BEFORE AFTER AFTER... read more

Commercial Painting, Parkville, MO

We are very excited to have the opportunity to paint such a community staple: Eagle Animal Hospital in Riverside, Missouri. This large-scale renovation was very demanding.  The hospital remained open while all renovations were underway and the project was completed in three different phases.   Many Saturdays and Sundays were spent making sure the demanding deadlines were met. The finishes within the building were also technical and slightly complicated.  Various epoxies finishes were used in wet areas like kennels and operating rooms providing the areas with maintenance free coatings.  Scaffolding was required to finish the 26 foot dual-color cedar lobby.  The exterior was a mixture of cementious siding and wood-based trim boards, requiring special primers prior to paint.  In addition, the exterior stain had to match the interior cedar all the while trying to compete with one of the wettest spring and summers on record. We definitely aim to please when we plan a project of this size.  Using the best product and making sure the beauty lasts as long as possible but most importantly to make sure our customers are DISTINCTIVE.      ... read more

Liberty Interior Restoration – Commercial Project

Liberty Edward Jones office of Kyle Walley. Historic buildings are always fun to finish.  Mixing antiquity with new seems to be the norm except with this building.   It was designed around preserving the floors and the walls to their correct circa as well as finishing the back office wall that accompanied high windows to share the light from the back office. At the start of this project the walls showed many stress cracks and plaster deterioration from decades of settling.  To make this project Distinctive, cracks were filled with shrink free compounds and many of the imperfections were left to be covered in paint.  This preserved the building to the correct period and gave the finished interior a clean and updated but also very vintage look.... read more

Independence, MO Commercial/Interior Painting

This project was unique because originally I had written it off as lost business.  After submitting a very competitive bid, I later found out that I was significantly underbid by a contractor.  The contractor tried to stay on budget by sub-contracting out the work to painters.  This is a practice that Distinctive Quality Painting never employees.  Our work is done by our experienced crew so I can make sure that time frames are hit and the quality is up to my standards.  Our original proposal called for the work to be done in two months.  Six months after losing the bid, we received a call from the owners asking us to take over the project.  Even though we had to fix a lot of work that was not up to our standards and work around cabinetry that had already been installed, we were able to complete the project in just six... read more

Liberty, MO Commercial/Interior Painting

Rock and Run Brewery in Liberty, MO took over two spaces that had previously been used for storage and an office.  One side featured untreated plaster over brick while the other side had been painted on top of the plaster.  While the owners loved the look of plaster over brick, they were less enthused about the plaster falling into their guests’ food and beer.  They had tried unsuccessfully to seal the walls before they called Distinctive Quality Painting.  I was able to use a commercial sealant to maintain the look they wanted and added a faux finish to the other side of the space to unify both sides of the room into a cohesive theme. Once finished with this project, they asked for his help on the brewery’s bar top and tables.  The wood used for this project was reclaimed from a bowling alley in Iowa.  While they had originally intended to use an epoxy to seal the wood, I noticed a potential problem.  Epoxy alone would not create the temperature and water vapor seal they needed to protect the wood for the life of the bar.  By using a conversion varnish I was able to provide them all of the benefits of varnish, but also give them the temperature resistance and vapor seal they needed.  The conversion varnish and labor ended up costing 1/3rd the price of the epoxy... read more
