Solutions-Based Commercial Painting for a Beautiful Boston Building

One of the ben­e­fits of being a Boston area com­mer­cial and indus­tri­al paint­ing com­pa­ny is that we have had the priv­i­lege of enhanc­ing many of the beau­ti­ful old­er build­ings in our neigh­bor­hood. There’s a lit­tle his­to­ry on every cor­ner, and that’s just part of the clas­sic charm of this city (well, that and a few fan­tas­tic sports teams).

Work­ing in his­toric and old­er build­ings comes with its own set of chal­lenges, too. We often are met with out­dat­ed mate­ri­als, decay, dam­age, past repairs/​products that need to be cor­rect­ed, and oth­er ques­tion marks that call for expe­ri­enced, expert management.

Exten­sive Com­mer­cial Painting

We cov­ered a lot of ground dur­ing this project, and a lot of sur­faces too.

Specif­i­cal­ly, our work involved the following:

Going Above and Beyond Dur­ing the Col­or Selec­tion Process

Choos­ing col­ors can be tough, espe­cial­ly when the choic­es you make rep­re­sent a large com­mit­ment through­out a com­mer­cial facility.

In this case, our client was hav­ing trou­ble choos­ing a col­or for the exte­ri­or pre-cast stone. Since there is just no sub­sti­tute for see­ing the real thing” when it comes to col­or selec­tion, we paint­ed 12 dif­fer­ent sam­ples for them to see in place and in nat­ur­al light­ing. This helped nar­row the field, and we got to work apply­ing their favorite option.

Remov­ing Car­bon Deposits Before Paint­ing the Exte­ri­or Cornice

Do you remem­ber those curve­balls we men­tioned that old­er build­ings occa­sion­al­ly throw our way? We encoun­tered a per­fect exam­ple of this when our fore­man inspect­ed the cor­nice run­ning around the upper, exte­ri­or edge of the build­ing (40 feet above the ground).

Our expe­ri­enced, skilled fore­man iden­ti­fied what appeared to be heavy car­bon deposits on the cor­nice, and knew that they would bleed through the acrylic elas­tomer­ic coat­ing (black deposits become vis­i­ble with­in 6 months). Our Sika rep (a lead­ing sup­pli­er of spe­cial­ty chem­i­cal prod­ucts and indus­tri­al mate­ri­als) con­firmed the deposits and rec­om­mend­ed removal.

While most painters would have paint­ed over them, we agreed on the revised course of action and the deposits were removed to ensure ide­al application.

The removal of these car­bon deposits put the 304 Stu­art Street project behind sched­ule, with a tight dead­line still in place. The job may have required more time to com­plete cor­rect­ly, but that’s how we oper­ate: no short­cuts. We spe­cial­ize in find­ing cre­ative solu­tions to keep our com­mit­ments, ensure the work is done prop­er­ly, and achieve our clients’ objectives.

The Kaloutas man­age­ment team drew from our large ros­ter of painters, increas­ing the job’s man­pow­er to meet the agreed upon deadline.
