Custom Painting Services For Older Homes
The owner, Pete Klasek, loves making older homes look new again. As a result, our painters take extra care in every step of the process.
Chicago’s Klasek Painting brings out character and architectural design in homes. Our goal is to increase value and curb appeal.
Precise Exterior Home Prep
The lasting value of your exterior finish begins with prep. Because of that, being thorough is particularly important for historical home painting. As a result, our house painters completely clean the exterior walls. That includes getting rid of dirt, cobwebs, and mildew. Plus, it covers power washing.
Next, once cleaning is complete, sanding and scraping begin. When getting an older home ready for paint, preparation can take quite a bit of time. But it’s worth it. In fact, for the paint to stick properly, the surface must be clean and smooth. At this point, we would apply a high-quality primer to any raw surface.

Expert Use of Color in Historic House Painting
Not only do we provide a free written estimate. But, we also offer a complimentary expert color consultation. With our 20 plus years of experience painting older homes in Chicago, we know how to use color.
One tip we give our customers is on combining colors. Specifically, choose either warm or cool.
Take your time and be selective in your choice of colors. It’s worth it.
The right combination will make your historic home look incredible.
We’re here to help you in your selection.
And, another interesting thing about painting historical homes is color. As a rule, the bolder the better. Specifically, bright colors aren’t just “excepted”. In fact, they are “expected”. As a result, your personality can be expressed. And most of all, your pride of ownership will show.
Meanwhile, Pete stays informed on Painted Lady trends. He’s up on color combinations from San Fran to Chicago. Locally, we have a few favorite neighborhoods. Such as Oak Park 60301 and LaGrange IL 60525.
