Satellite Dish Refinishing in Needham, MA

We were on TV!

Well, not quite. But we were on top of satel­lite dish­es used by WCVB — TV 5 in Need­ham, MA. It had been 12 years since the station’s dish­es were last refin­ished and, thanks to those years of relent­less expo­sure to UV cor­ro­sion, the met­al was in rough shape.

The fact of the mat­ter is, the ele­ments are con­stant­ly work­ing against your paint and coat­ings. Think of facil­i­ty main­te­nance as being like putting sun­screen on at the beach: first, you don’t think you need it. Then, inevitably, the sun creeps high­er in the sky and you sud­den­ly wish you had it. Just one lay­er real­ly doesn’t quite cut it either; a reap­pli­ca­tion every few hours is what it takes to make sure your day (and fol­low­ing week!) is pleas­ant. In the same way, your prop­er­ty’s exte­ri­or needs to be peri­od­i­cal­ly refreshed to be able to offer opti­mal pro­tec­tion (and style).

Clean­ing and Coat­ing Satel­lite Dish­es — Our Process

The trick with qual­i­ty exte­ri­or coat­ing is to take into con­sid­er­a­tion every need that your sur­face has. What is its func­tion, and will the prod­uct you choose inhib­it or pro­mote its abil­i­ty to do its job?

In this case, we need­ed a coat­ing that was durable, would­n’t hin­der recep­tion, and offered accept­able reflec­tive prop­er­ties at the same time. Here are the steps we followed:

  • Cleaned the old, cor­rod­ed coat­ings off the dishes
  • We applied Sher­win Williams Pro-Indus­tri­al High Per­for­mance Acrylic Coat­ing Sys­tem (it’s a mouth­ful, but it does the trick!)
  • Met all man­u­fac­tur­ers’ specifications
  • We worked with their Head of Facil­i­ties to strate­gi­cal­ly base our work sched­ule around the satel­lite shut­downs, inclement weath­er, and the mobi­liza­tion orga­ni­za­tion. He and his team were a real asset and plea­sure to work with!
