It’s Fun To Paint At the YMCA - Commercial Painting in Stoughton, MA

For well over a cen­tu­ry the YMCA has been syn­ony­mous with healthy com­mu­ni­ty activ­i­ties, and pro­vid­ing oppor­tu­ni­ties for young peo­ple to dis­cov­er their potential.

Because of the pos­i­tive local impact that this non­prof­it has, we were thrilled to see the recent expan­sion of the Stri­ar YMCA. Hav­ing grown out of their space as it was, they essen­tial­ly absorbed the adja­cent court­yard and added a beau­ti­ful new fit­ness room to accom­mo­date their grow­ing needs.

We were con­tract­ed to help with the paint­ing of a vari­ety of sur­faces in their fresh­ly-expand­ed facil­i­ty. It was our plea­sure to help!

Inte­ri­or Com­mer­cial Paint­ing — Dry­wall, Met­al Doors, Rail­ings, and More…

In case you like the tech­ni­cal details, here’s a clos­er look at the prod­ucts we used on each surface:

  • GWB Walls (Dry­wall)
    • Primer: Sher­win-Williams Pro­Mar® 200 Zero VOC Inte­ri­or Latex
    • 2 Coats: Sher­win-Williams Pro­Mar® 200 Zero VOC Inte­ri­or Latex Eg-Shel
  • Rail­ings, Steel Columns, and Met­al Stairwell
    • 2 Coats: Pro Indus­tri­al DTM Acrylic Semi-Gloss
  • GWB Ceil­ings and Soffits
    • 2 Coats: Sher­win-Williams Pro­Mar® 200 Zero VOC Inte­ri­or Latex Flat
  • Hol­low Met­al Doors, Frames and Bor­rowed Lights
    • 2 Coats: Pro Indus­tri­al DTM Acrylic Semi-Gloss
  • Exposed Ceil­ings
    • 1 Coat: Water­borne Acrylic Dry­Fall Flat

Using Dry Erase Inte­ri­or Paint — Who Says You Can’t Write On the Walls?

In a cou­ple of the rooms we also uti­lized dry erase paint for extra functionality.

And yes, as the name indi­cates this kit allows paint con­trac­tors to turn near­ly any paint­ed wall into a ful­ly-func­tion­ing dry erase sur­face. Write, erase, sketch, and illus­trate to your heart’s con­tent. It’s ide­al for office spaces, meet­ing rooms, class­rooms, and, of course, the YMCA.

Anoth­er Spe­cial Fea­ture of This Paint­ing Project

If you click through the pho­tos above you’ll notice the huge glass win­dows along the ceil­ing. This is a fan­tas­tic way to let nat­ur­al light flood the space, but it can pose chal­lenges when it comes to painting.

In order to work smarter rather than hard­er, we paint­ed the exposed ceil­ing and steel columns/​beams before the glass was installed. This is just anoth­er exam­ple of how our con­struc­tion expe­ri­ence and empha­sis on coor­di­na­tion can help us avoid need­less­ly time-con­sum­ing situations.

This tac­tic also allowed the sec­tions clos­est to the glass to be vis­i­bly paint­ed from the exte­ri­or. Lit­tle details like that con­tribute to a more attrac­tive aes­thet­ic overall.
