Electrostatic Painting NJ

For more than 20 years Spectra Painting, Inc ,  has be providing high quality Electrostatic Painting services to the tri-state area.  Our first major project was a Shoprite in Staten Island back in the 90s.  It was our first large case paint.  Since then we have done thousands of feet of product cases as well as hundreds of Check stands.  This is tricky work as the stores are normally open when we start. So dodging customers is in play.  And we must be finished and cleaned up by the time they open in the early morning.  A true challenge. We always seem to make it happen though.  I am involved in all phases of the process and from experience try to limit any hiccups that may occur.  We have a customer base that trusts us completely  because of this commitment to quality and efficiency .  Electrostatic Painting is a mystery to most people, however, if you think of it as just another method of applying paint to a surface, it will help.  The magnetic attraction caused by the unit merely helps reduce Overspray and will allow the paint to wrap around small corners, that’s it.  Not a real hard concept to understand. It does not make the paint “stick better ” .

We are starting  a project at this Historic home.  Due to a burst water pipe a large section of the main hall ceiling and portions of the walls were completely destroyed and the old Plaster and lathe  had to be removed.  We will be installing new plaster and lathe and repainting and duplicating and original color coat plaster finish.

The old wood in the walls are actually trees sliced longwise.  Very interesting. IMG_1481 IMG_1483 - Copy

History

Completed as a one-room farmhouse in 1695 by Arent Schuyler, the Schuyler homestead was passed to Arent Schuyler’s great granddaughter Hester Schuyler who married William Colfax, commander of George Washington’s Life Guards. Their grandson, Schuyler Colfax, Jr., was the 17th Vice President of the United States. The Dutch Colonial style addition to the originally brick and field-stone building was added by Colfax in 1783.

Despite the 20th century alteration of the structure to add dormers in place of “belly-windows,” the Schuyler-Colfax House was added to the State and National Registers of Historic Places in 1965, a decision based upon surviving historic features and the important role the Schuyler-Colfax family has played in local history.[4]

Today, the building operates as a local history museum having been purchased in 1994 by Wayne Township from Dr. Jane Colfax.
