"Short Intro. I spent most of my working life in the family business. We were painting contractors working exclusively with the Forbes 400 clientele. Our work was in Architectural Digest very frequently. The top decorators and designers, Kevin McNamara, Clair Fraser, Mark Hampton, Mario Buatta, Tom Britt, Tony Ingrao. Very fine painting(all with oil paint and brushes), specialty glazing and wallpaper hanging. I left that business to train under a antique restorer for 5 years where I had the chance to learn my trade (there is soo much to learn and always an exceptions to every rule) and most recently on my own for the past 7 years.
At Zsikla Restoration, I pride myself on delivering the very best finished product that more than meets your satisfaction and earns the reputation of repeat business.
When I stand in front of a new project I feel an inner competition with the last person that worked on it and I always want my work to exceed the last tradesman that touched that particular piece. After I finish the refinishing or restoration work, the end result of how it looks and having you, the client, be excited to receive the new and improved piece, reminds me each time of why I do what I do. I was trained by an old world craftsman where I learned the importance of fine workmanship and I am very fortunate to work in a field that I enjoy every day.
Please note that I pay for the chance to bid on your project, so in order for me to provide an accurate proposal it greatly helps if you send a photo of the project. I am also free to answer any questions you may have should you wish to work on the piece yourself first, so feel free to contact me.
Thank you for taking the time to review my profile and I look forward to hearing from you.
Simply the satisfaction of doing my work to the best of my abilities is the key to enjoying the work I do."
