Church Renovation

Artech specializes in church restoration and renovation, including temples and synagogues. Our interior renovation services in Massachusetts range from minor repairs to complete renovation, while preserving the unique history and architecture of each worship building.

Church Painting and Plaster Restoration

Artech Church Interiors Inc. offers expert painting services for churches in need of a refreshing coat, a color transformation, or decorative accents. Our seasoned church painters have handled an array of projects, successfully completing numerous interior painting jobs. Our high-quality craftsmanship and attention to detail significantly enhance the aesthetic appeal of Massachusetts churches. You can trust Artech with the delicate task of cleaning and restoring murals and statues.

We also specialize in the restoration of historical church plaster. Our unique expertise allows us to preserve and restore historic plaster instead of removing it or concealing it under modern sheetrock. Artech also provides routine patching services and the restoration or replication of decorative moldings.

Worship Lighting

Do members of your congregation rush to secure the limited seats under adequate lighting just to ensure they can read properly? Are bridal parties and wedding photographers expressing discontent over poorly lit or discolored lighting conditions? Does your maintenance team need help sourcing replacements for outdated light bulb styles or sockets? Are the operational costs of your current lighting system sky-high?

Artech presents innovative lighting solutions that use LED technology, providing a warm glow to enrich the spiritual environment. With a range of lighting options, including pendant fixtures, chandeliers, or wall sconces, our team is committed to helping you realize your vision.

When should our Massachusetts church consider replacing light fixtures versus simply relamping or refurbishing the current ones?

If your existing light fixtures show signs of discoloration, brittleness, or damage, or if they are solid canisters with only a single downward-facing lamp, or if they necessitate special or old-fashioned light bulbs, these may be signs that it’s time to consider replacing them rather than merely revamping or refurbishing. Artech provides a diverse array of pendants, chandeliers, and wall sconces in various traditional and contemporary designs that are energy efficient and crafted to elevate the ambiance of your place of worship. Get in touch with Artech to discuss your current lighting situation and your goals and to request a product catalog.

LED relamping could be feasible if your existing light fixtures accommodate common-sized incandescent or fluorescent bulbs (typically medium-based screw-in style). Reach out to Artech for further details.

However, if your current light fixtures have historic or architectural value, refurbishing or restoring them may be the best course of action. Many types of lighting can be enhanced and upgraded with new LED lamps, allowing you to enjoy their beauty now and in the future while preserving the original craftsmanship.

Do we need a lighting designer for our church?

If your building has been a house of worship, the existing placement of light fixtures is likely suitable. However, the style of the fixtures, the materials used, or the current lamp types may not meet today’s standards of adequacy or desirability. The skilled team at Artech Church Interiors, Inc. can provide suggestions to improve and amplify your sanctuary and nave lighting, generally utilizing the existing setup without the extra cost of hiring a lighting designer.

If you find that a lighting designer is still necessary, please don’t hesitate to contact us for a recommendation.

Frequently Asked Questions

The duration of a church restoration undertaking in Massachusetts hinges on the extent of work involved and the size of the church. Minor repairs or uncomplicated refurbishing may take a few days to weeks, while comprehensive restorations might span several months. Our seasoned church restoration team will work with you to offer a projected timeline for your project.

It is highly advised to plan your church restoration in advance. High-demand religious events such as Easter, Christmas, Passover, and High Holy Days often serve as project deadlines, making early booking essential to secure your preferred start date and ensure timely completion. Winter months are optimal for inspections and budget planning. As every project is tailored to individual needs, do remember to include manufacturing lead times in your overall project schedule. Rely on Artech to guide you through your project seamlessly.

We understand the significance of preserving the continuity of church services and events throughout the restoration process.  Thus, we coordinate with our clients to devise a restoration strategy that reduces both downtime and interruptions. Although temporary closure may occasionally be necessary, we make every effort to limit such instances. Artech is also mindful of differing worship schedules across denominations and committed to accommodating unforeseen funerals or unplanned occasions.

Yes, we offer custom design options for church restoration projects. Our team of skilled craftsmen and designers will collaborate closely with you to create a restoration plan that aligns with your distinct vision and budget.

If you’ve observed a decline in attendance or difficulties in attracting new members due to an uncomfortable or uninviting worship space, it may be a strong indicator that your house of worship needs restoration. Look for signs like deteriorating plaster, peeling or bubbling paint, damaged or uncomfortable pews, noisy or broken kneelers, impaired windows or stained glass, and water damage. If you’re uncertain about the need for restoration, we advise scheduling a consultation with our experienced church restoration contractors and specialists. They can assess your church’s condition and provide expert guidance tailored to your specific situation.

To request a consultation for a church restoration project, simply contact us by phone, email, or through our website. Our team will gladly discuss your needs and arrange a consultation at your convenience.

We utilize premium commercial-grade materials such as wood, marble, tile, and stained glass for church restoration projects. Artech’s team considers your budget and project requirements to recommend the best materials for your specific needs.

If your church has budget constraints, Artech can assist you in effectively prioritizing your renovation projects. We can guide you in identifying which improvements will yield the most significant impact and value for your investment, ensuring that you make the most of your available funds.

Artech Church Interiors, Inc. offers two types of pew refinishing services. Our experienced team will assess the construction and condition of your pews to make tailored recommendations that align with your objectives and budget

Our on-site refurbishing process can be completed in a few days and includes the following:

  • Protect the work area and any adjacent areas that could be affected
  • Clean and scuff-sanding to the pews in their existing locations
  • Blend in a new finish as needed to match the existing finish as closely as possible
  • Apply a protective polyurethane finish.
  • If a color change or complete stripping and refinishing are desired, Artech can provide a budget for off-site refinishing. The refinishing process is as follows: 

    • Sketch floorplan of the existing pew layout and carefully number the pews
    • Loosen anchors from the floor, then carefully load and protect pews to our trucks.
    • Strip pews to the bare wood in our shop, then apply a new stain in the desired color.
    • Scuff sand between coats, then apply a protective polyurethane finish.
    • Allow time to cure, then transport pews back to the church or temple and reinstall pews to their original locations. 

Complete refinishing is a lengthy process. Please contact Artech’s team for a project discussion and on-site evaluation. We will gladly provide a detailed budget and estimated timeline for your refinishing needs.

  • Our craftsmen can also repair or replace damaged parts for an additional fee.
  • We also refurbish and refinish frontal/privacy screens, other furnishings, and adjacent woodwork. 

If your current all-wood pews are uncomfortable or if the cushions or upholstery are worn out, we highly recommend adding new cushions or upholstery as part of the refurbishment or refinishing process. Each order is customized to fit your specific pews, ensuring a tailored solution. We also offer reupholstering services for chairs (in most cases) and can provide new seats and back cushions as well. 

If your current pews are displaying notable damage such as peeling, chipping, or cracking, particularly if they are constructed from particle board with veneers, we recommend considering the option of new pews. This is a wise choice to ensure long-term durability and aesthetic appeal for your worship space.

Artech can evaluate your existing pews, providing recommendations for refurbishments, repairs, or refinishing. We can also advise you on whether investing in new pews would be a more favorable option rather than trying to salvage the existing ones.

Do you have a new building or know you need new seating? Contact us today to discuss your needs, and we will provide comprehensive guidance throughout the entire process of selecting, procuring, and installing new pews and chairs.

Our team of skilled church restoration experts and craftsmen will collaborate closely with you to ensure your church pews are refurbished to your unique needs. Reach out to us, and let’s begin the journey of transforming your worship space.
