Callie On The Job: Bernstein Painting

Posted: Updated:

MARION -- As trends change, so does our vision for our home and its decor. News 3's Callie Carroll is on the job with Bernstein Painting this week, where she learns how to fix difficult decorating problems. 

Guido Bernstein, owner of Bernstein Painting and Decorative Finishes, has been in the business for 41 years. 

Bernstein says, "We come in and take an area, whether it's interior or exterior, and we change it to the vision the homeowner or business owner has in their mind and we turn that into reality."

The main change they do is painting, but they also do pressure washing, deck restoration, and staining or spray work. 

"Although there's so called strippable paper and strippable paste, sometimes this is just an awful mess, and it will pull down to nothing but brown sheet rock and then we spend days repairing and resurfacing it, and we hate doing it. It's not a make work project for us but sometimes it happens," said Bernstein.

He says hanging wallpaper used to be 25 percent of his business in the 1980s and 1990s, but now it makes up about 1 percent of his business.

Bernstein quote to live by is, "Proper preparation prevents poor performance."
