Home improvement can be a challenging and immensely rewarding experience. But when you’re ready to relax rather than do-it-yourself, Mike Lyster Painting and Wallcovering can help you reap the rewards without all of the work! And because homes are as individual as their owners, we bring a wide variety of expert skills to the door, so you can enjoy “one stop shopping” for your painting and wall covering needs.
  • Historic Home Revitalization – It’s our area of expertise! We’ve extensively studied historic color schemes at the Campbell Center for Preservation Studies (Galena, IL), so you’re guaranteed a finish that’s historically accurate.
  • Interiors
  • Vinyl and Aluminum Siding – We can give your siding a new coat of paint; with proper preparation, the look will last as long as the factory finish.
  • Peeling paint – We can remedy this unsightly, yet common problem.
  • Color Consultation and Design – We offer ideas for the homeowner who wants to make improvements, but wants a designer’s expertise.
  • Paint selection – It’s a colorful world out there – how can you possibly choose? We’ll help you select the appropriate sheen and type of paint for the job.
  • Remediation – We can repair existing problems, including drywall and plaster patching.
  • Wallpaper removal and installation – Old wallpaper can date a house, not coordinating with today’s styles. We have the knowledge and equipment to remove unsightly wallpaper and give your walls an immediate update.
  • Tight Timelines – If you’ve got big dreams, but not a big timeline, we’ll work hard to finish your project with time to spare.
  • Identifying Solutions – Our quality approach to solving problems that may arise is based on our company’s 30 years of experience.
  • Enameling and Varnishing – We can apply a protective sheen to doors, woodwork, cabinetry and more.
Best of all, our ongoing investment in equipment, scaffolding, and personnel lifts makes a difficult job easy to accomplish, and in a safe manner.
