How Can We Meet Industrial Painting Needs with a Tight Deadline? It All Comes Down to Our Team

Our client, locat­ed in Hook­sett, NH, is one of the largest pri­vate­ly-held con­struc­tion firms in the nation. Spe­cial­iz­ing in the pro­duc­tion of world-class jet engines and com­po­nents for both mil­i­tary and com­mer­cial air­craft, they work with tight dead­lines, pro­duc­tion require­ments, and need a work space that is con­ducive to their operations.

Their prod­ucts are cer­tain­ly fast, and so was their desired turn­around time for the recent expan­sion of their Hook­sett facility.

Inte­ri­or Indus­tri­al Paint­ing — Turn­ing On Our Afterburners

With an eye on the clock (or, more specif­i­cal­ly, the cal­en­dar), we were asked to han­dle paint­ing the exposed struc­ture with­in their mas­sive new addi­tion, the paint­ing of their office space, and the appli­ca­tion of a new floor sys­tem as well.

Because of the size and flex­i­bil­i­ty of our team, we were able to simul­ta­ne­ous­ly paint their office and indus­tri­al space, cre­at­ing the most effi­cient work strat­e­gy possible.

  • We paint­ed all of the exposed deck overhead.
  • The dry­wall por­tions were paint­ed with inte­ri­or latex paint from Sher­win-Williams, and we chose a durable eggshell finish.
  • The CMU (Con­crete Mason­ry Unit) walls were paint­ed with an epoxy paint, also from Sherwin-Williams.

Why Should You Con­sid­er Paint­ing Your Con­crete Block Walls with Epoxy Paint?

Not many peo­ple out­side of the pro­fes­sion­al paint­ing indus­try know that new­ly-con­struct­ed mason­ry scores very high on the pH scale. In oth­er words, it is very acidic and can cause alka­li burn. This results in the dis­col­oration and fail­ure of the paint or primer.

The lev­el of acid­i­ty does drop over time dur­ing the nat­ur­al cur­ing process, but when you are work­ing with a strict timetable it’s not always real­is­tic or pos­si­ble to wait for nature to take its course. When time is of the essence, more spe­cial­ized prod­ucts need to be called into play.

For this project, we chose an epoxy paint from Sher­win-Williams that was devel­oped to offer a durable, flex­i­ble coat­ing for CMU walls. This is a superb prod­uct and it kept us right on track with our timeline.

Why Is an Epoxy Floor Sys­tem Per­fect for this Indus­tri­al Space, and Maybe for Yours?

In an envi­ron­ment where there is going to be a heavy vol­ume of foot traf­fic, machin­ery, and equip­ment, you need a floor that can work just as hard as you do and make it look easy.

A seam­less epoxy floor sys­tem like we installed for our client here offers numer­ous prac­ti­cal ben­e­fits, including:

  • Fast appli­ca­tion and cur­ing time
  • Low-odor and envi­ron­men­tal­ly friendly
  • Impact resis­tant
  • Offers a styl­ish, pro­tec­tive bar­ri­er for your concrete
  • Easy to clean
  • Cus­tomiz­able
  • Low poros­i­ty, mak­ing it a stain resis­tant and sanitary

All aspects of the project were fin­ished to our client’s spec­i­fi­ca­tions and right on sched­ule. It was our plea­sure to help!
