Paul Linden, Principal of Accent Painting Inc, originally hails from New York. He graduated with a Civil Engineering degree but soon moved to San Diego and became involved with cabinet finishing and the application of specialized marine coatings for yachts and the sport fishing industry.
In 1982 Paul received California state contractors license number 421679 and founded Accent Painting Inc.
In 1998 paul married his long time girlfriend Eileen Stewart, who Paul fondly terms "the better half of Accent Painting".
Some of the more recent milestone projects achieved by Accent Painting include:
- The interior painting and exterior painting of Beech Towers in downtown San Diego, a 9 story high rise residential condo project. Paul was hired for his expertise with high rise swing stage work and knowledge of elastomeric coatings.
- A 1.3 million contract to complete a 22,000 s.f. home in Rancho Santa Fe.
- Completion of the new Eddie V's restaurant in downtown La Jolla on Prospect st. Paul was hired to restore the large exposed beams that were severely damaged by termites. After sandblasting the company filled the damaged areas with epoxy tinted to the wood color and hand carved the deep grain pattern to match existing. Some advance faux-finishing techniques blended the repairs, leaving the restored beams looking like new.
- The finishing of 18,000 lineal feet of Sapele mahogany moldings and faux finished maple doors, trim and fixtures for the new Amay's restaurant in la Jolla on Prospect Ave.
We excel in the preparation before the painting and attention to detail.
