Faux finishing, faux painting, decorative painting - whatever you may call it, Larry Stewart Painting & Decorating can do it!
Faux finishes are an excellent way to add interest or drama to a room, or even on a bigger scale, to an entire home. Faux finishing can be a good alternative to wallpaper, giving you a more complex finish and look than simple paint, without requiring the complex process of removal if you decide to change your mind later on.
The purpose of many types of faux painting is to make the application look like a certain material such as stone, marble or wood. However, decorative painting has gotten both more simple and more complex.
Fairly straightforward faux finish painting applications include sponging, color washing and rag rolling. These require minimal additional materials and tools.
More complex techniques for faux finishing include crackling, marbleizing, faux granite, strie', fresco and graining. These applications require more additional material like glazes and/or plaster and advanced planning to ensure the result matches the preference of the homeowner.
When you call on Larry Stewart Painting & Decorating for your faux painting project, you can rest assured that we'll work closely with you to make sure the finish goes on beautifully and presents the look you want for your home.

Top Quality Painters! Larry Stewart Painting is a superior professional painting company. They are efficient, hardworking, and detail-oriented. They recently power-washed my home in the Governors Club in Chapel Hill, replaced an exterior door to the garage, repaired wood rot, repainted my exterior lights, varnished all the porch ceilings, re-stained the porch floor, hand painted an outdoor spiral staircase, re-stained the front door,caulked all seams, and brush painted all the trim and siding. I had received several cheaper estimates for the job but the other contractors proposed using lower quality paint and spray painting the siding. I was very impressed with the labor intensive brush work on the entire house. Every morning for two weeks, two vans with six men would arrive at 7:30 am wearing clean white painters coveralls prepared to work. Each day they were organized, pre-planned, quiet, courteous, and cleaned up as they worked. The crew completed their duties like skilled craftsmen. Larry Stewart has been painting houses for over 30 years, the experience and expertise are evident in the outcome.
Mr. Stewart is a man of his word. He promised a beautiful job and that is what we got. The crew was professional, courteous, and their work was meticulous. I could not find anything that wasn't done perfectly. Mr. Stewart is always available to take your call and his timeline is right on point. The best decision we ever made was having Mr. Stewart and his crew paint our house. Do yourself a favor and hire the best!
