Since 1989 Ecclesiastical Studios & Sons have been restoring, redecorating and creating church interiors of historic significance throughout the Dioceses of the entire Midwest. Some of the skills our craftsmen employ are plaster restoration, architectural and decorative painting, Ecclesiastical designs, statuary restoration, altar refinishing/modifications, color schemes, and full-color renderings.
We own and will provide all scaffolding and rigging, needed to help keep costs down.
Our company provides a three-man crew working on one project at a time from start to finish.
We do not subcontract any workout, church restorations and decorating is our only business.
All Ecclesiastical work is guaranteed on materials and workmanship for a three year period.
We will provide your church with a detailed set bid and time of completion that we stand by.
