Egged House To Get A Free Paint Job From Neubert Painting
An elderly Euclid man whose house was repeatedly egged by an unknown assailant for more than a year, will have his house repainted free of charge this summer by Neubert Painting. The house on Wilmore Avenue, which received national attention for the incident, was egged more than 100 times between May 20, 2014 and June 26, 2015, according to reports.
“We offered to repaint the house last summer as part of our annual Charity Paint Giveaway, but we were waiting for police approval since the case was still under investigation,” said John Neubert, owner of Neubert Painting in Brook Park. Then last fall Neubert received the go-ahead from police to paint the house. They planned to do the job as soon as weather permitted.
According to news reports, a former neighbor is allegedly facing charges regarding the eggings.
Since dried eggs have covered the house for nearly two years, the job will require considerable preparation before painting can begin, says Neubert.
The Charity Paint Giveway was created in 2008 by Neubert to provide free exterior painting services to a homeowner or non-profit organization whose building needs painting, but can’t afford it. “We have been trusted by Northeast Ohio homeowners since 1975, and we feel part of our mission is to give back to our community. This continues our tradition of doing community service projects for people in need,” says Neubert.
More than $100,000 in free painting services has been provided through the Charity Paint giveaway since 2008. Neubert Painting was formerly located in Lakewood, Ohio.
