Two Local Homes Named Finest Painted Ladies

Two Beverly/Morgan Park homes were recently honored as Chicago’s Finest Painted Ladies in the 31st annual competition sponsored by the Chicago Paint & Coatings Association.

Winning Best Use of Color for a Non-Victorian Professionally Painted Home were Jason and Jennifer Stec, 2018 W. 101st Pl., whose house was painted by Graff Painting Company. Winning Best Use of Color for a Geographic Location, professionally painted, were Rob and Leanne Quane, 9528 S. Longwood Dr., whose house was painted by Kelso Painting.

Nine beautifully painted homes from throughout Chicagoland received top honors, and for the first time, two of the awards went to neighborhood homes. .

The contest is open to homes and businesses throughout the Chicago area. The style, size or age of the property is not a factor in selecting the winners, but beauty and craftsmanship of the paint application, and how well it complements the structure of the building, are essential to being a Chicago’s Finest Painted Ladies winner.

“Based on the wide range of beautiful entries, it underscores the fact that paint and coatings are the most affordable ways to improve and accent a home or business appearance,” said Chicago Paint & Coatings Association’s spokesperson Bill Heiden.  According to Heiden, the National Association of Real Estate Appraisers estimates that a good first appearance of a home can add as much as 5 percent to 10 percent to the value of the home.
