Government Painting on the East Coast

What makes Maryland a special state in this country is that its past is steeped in history, often showcased as historical homes and government buildings with unique and traditional architecture. By keeping these properties well-maintained and preserved, we can remember our nation’s past and truly appreciate how styles and aesthetics have evolved over time, yet still feel familiar.

The White House

At Klappenberger & Son, one of our great passions is maintaining the stunning condition of government buildings and keeping the architecture alive by performing historical restoration and painting services. Our trained, licensed and insured painting professionals have extensive experience working with historic and government locations and understand the best preservation and paint application techniques to maintain the elegant and timeless appearance of your building and keep its structure in pristine condition.

We specialize in federal, state and municipal building painting services and have painted the following historic and government buildings — some of them you may have heard of — including:

  • The Pentagon
  • The White House
  • The Capitol Building
  • Museums
  • Anne Arundel Community College

No matter what type of government building painting services you require, we understand that the job needs to be done right, on budget and on time. That’s why you should use Klappenberger & Son. We are fully licensed and insured and will accommodate your schedule by working nights and weekends, if necessary, so we don’t interrupt your daily operations.


Benefits of Using a Professional Government Building Painting Service

Paint not only adds freshness, timelessness and appeal to a government or historic building, but also protects the structure and decorative features of the building against moisture and other damages. In historic and government buildings, repainting should occur if the current layer of paint is deeply cracked, peeling and blistering, revealing the plaster or wood underneath, or if windows are painted shut.

However, in government buildings, new layers of paint shouldn’t just be applied over the old layer — for proper application and preservation, the old paint should be removed. For amateurs, added hazard is introduced in buildings built before 1950 that may have toxic lead paint that requires special handling.

At Klappenberger & Son, we offer that expert touch required for removing old layers of paint without damaging the walls, decorative trim or other elements by properly cleaning and preparing the surface, scraping and hand-sanding. For each government building painting project, we perform an assessment to create a unique and customized preparation and painting plan to ensure proper application and understand your expectations.
