Artech Wallcovering’s roots were established in 1935 when Philip Reinhard Painting and Decorating was established. Originally the company did interior and exterior painting, home repairs, and paperhanging.
The founder, my father, Philip Reinhard, set out to create a business that provided the highest quality work available, a tradition that continues to this day.
Throughout the years my father, established a reputation for outstanding quality as well as being the type of person you were comfortable having in your home.
After working throughout my school years learning from my father and his men I started working full time in the business in 1975. My father taught me the basics of paperhanging. The opportunity came up for me to attend The US School of Professional Paperhanging in 1978 and it was there that I learned the finer aspects of the craft.
On return to New Jersey after graduation I slowly took over the reins of the business. It became apparent to me that my skills and talents in wallcovering installation were what I wanted to focus on and over a period I phased out all other aspects of the business and Philip Reinhard Painting and Decorating became Reinhard Wallcovering, LLC.
Now as the wallcovering industry evolves the availability and popularity of new products demands installers focused not only on the artistic aspect of creating beautiful spaces, but on the technical skills needed to install these new products.
The tradition of quality started by my father in 1935 carries on today, through the second generation of the business, with my firm belief in doing every job with the goal of creating a beautiful job that will last for years to come.
