Cleaning and Painting Rooftop Mechanical Penthouses in Worcester, MA

Posted on Friday, December 23, 2016

We were recently contracted to clean and paint two metal mechanical penthouses located on the roof of a mercantile center in downtown Worcester, MA.

While every commercial and industrial painting project requires a custom approach, this particular job called for some especially unique solution-based creativity.

What Factors Did We Have To Consider?

Factor #1 - Downtown Location

Working on a rooftop in busy downtown Worcester called for extremely careful work with our sprayer. Project containment is a specialty of ours, however, allowing us to successfully protect the surrounding environment.

Factor #2 - The Facility’s HVAC and Ventilation System Needed to Be Shut Down

Why? Well, the mechanical penthouses we painted serve as the inlet for the building’s ventilation. Our solution to this issue was scheduling flexibility, working on the weekend when the facility was not in use.

Factor #3 - Weather Conditions

Having both experience and product knowledge is non-negotiable when it comes to wintertime exterior painting. With environmental demands and the less-than-friendly weather conditions in mind, we selected a phenomenal product from Sherwin-Williams Protective & Marine Coatings line: COROTHANE I MIO-ALUMINUM.

The Perfect Urethane Coating for This Rooftop Metal Application

Why did we choose this particular coating?

  • Awesome adhesion across a variety of substrates
  • Corrosion-resistant (perfect for a rooftop in New England!)
  • Extremely durable
  • Specifically formulated to be able to adhere to and protect even metal that is weathered and tired
  • Its aluminum and micaceous iron oxide create an advanced film strength
  • Can be applied in temperatures as low as 20°F (-7°C) without compromising adhesion and curing integrity
  • As an added bonus, it was a perfect color match!
