The company’s founder, Robert Dufort, arrived in San Francisco in the mid-1970s, a time when restoration of the city’s Victorian homes was blossoming. The elaborate painting of their facades, with details picked out in multiple colors, was intrinsic to this movement. Established in the midst of this period, Magic Brush was soon to become known for its meticulous surface preparation and innovative restoration techniques. By the late 1980’s, Robert had expanded the company’s range into the field of custom interior painting. Since then, a variety of national awards, published articles and seminars have sealed the reputation of Magic Brush for its careful attention to detail and fine finishes.
