Scholar Painting, a house painting company based out of Seymour, will be featured on an up and coming episode on A&E's Flip This House. Tackling one of the most exciting aspects of today's high-stakes real estate market, the transformation of an eyesore into a profit-making beauty, A&E's follows travails of real-estate investors in New Haven, CT, Los Angeles, CA, San Antonio, TX and Atlanta, GA. Each boasts a team of characters that buys homes, renovates them in a record time, and flips them for a profit. It sounds simple, but sparks fly and tempers are high before the fixer-uppers are ready to go back on the market.
CT Homes, a New Heaven based property investment company is the New Haven team for Flip This House. Having high standards and tight deadlines to be on the show, CT Home hires reputable professionals to work with their team to complete the flipping process efficiency and on time while meeting expectations. Matt Burke and Vaughn Butler, owners of Scholar Painting, saw this as an opportunity and an experience and contracted CT Homes to apply for a bid on this project. After looking over Scholar Painting's qualifications, past work, and letter of recommendations, they were hired to tackle the interior of the 108-year home. From removing the 5 layers of wallpaper, repairing the sheetrock and hundred year old plastered walls, to the detailed finishing painting, Scholar Painting's team finished on time for open house. Vaughn Butler says, "this is the most intense painting project I have been a part of and being hired for this project is a great achievement for Scholar Painting and my employees." This episode will air on Saturday, October 4 10:00 pm ET on A&E.
