Presto originated in the high-rise building maintenance industry in Atlanta, Georgia. After years of servicing countless numbers of buildings, containing difficult to remove stains on the glass, metal, and stone surfaces, Presto discovered that the only solutions available involved the use of harsh and damaging chemicals that hardly worked, were short-lived, and/or extremely dangerous to the applicator. We discovered that many of the products and techniques commonly used in the industry were outdated, and did not take advantage of the newest advances in chemical technologies. We also began to discover how many products and techniques actually caused problems through their use, instead of solving them. There was an evident lack of products and information in our industry to effectively address the demand for architectural surface restoration.
Presto Restoration Products, Inc. was formed, conceptualizing, creating, and manufacturing the first complete line of products which address the complicated issues involved in simultaneously maintaining multiple architectural surfaces on high-rise commercial buildings. Presto has invested a substantial amount of money, and years of research and development, in finding a cure for the many different types of stains that develop on architectural surfaces. The end result is a company unlike any other in the industry. A company well-versed in the restoration and preservation of virtually every type of architectural surface. There are a few product companies that create restoration products for commercial building services, but Presto is the first to address glass, metal, stone, and specialty composite material solutions within one product line.
Presto has created a product line, developed at the turn of the 21st century, in the height of the desire for environmentally green, high-performance products, utilizing the newest chemical technologies available. Presto's products and techniques are designed to work harmoniously in order to protect the exterior of buildings, and create longer-lasting restoration investment retention for property owners.
Judah Clark, Founder and CEO of Presto Restoration Products, Inc., has dedicated his career to the building restoration and maintenance industry. Over the course of more than a decade, serving as CEO of Presto Property Services, Inc., Mr. Clark personally supervised thousands of projects involving virtually every type of building surface. In an effort to provide the best result possible, Mr. Clark rigorously tested all of the available products and techniques on the market. Clark used these experiences as the foundation for his research, and created a complete, and synergistic, product line for the industry.
