Cleaning and Painting Rooftop Mechanical Penthouses in Worcester, MA

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: COROTHANEMIO-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!
