Industrial Painting Tips: What to Consider When Painting Your Tilt-Up Building

 Industrial Painting Tips: What to Consider When Painting Your Tilt-Up Building

The indus­tri­al paint­ing process for tilt-up con­struc­tion isn’t the same as paint­ing oth­er build­ing exte­ri­ors and can’t be done by your aver­age pick­up truck painter. When it comes time to paint or repaint your tilt-up con­crete prepa­ra­tion, skill and plan­ning make for a beau­ti­ful and long-last­ing paint job. You need a con­trac­tor who under­stands this and con­sid­ers the specifics, like, Should you use a bond break­er?” What’s the right tem­per­a­ture or weath­er to paint your build­ing?” Will your select­ed col­or wear well over time?”

The pro­fes­sion­al exte­ri­or painters at Kaloutas have more than 30 years of expe­ri­ence paint­ing com­mer­cial and indus­tri­al struc­tures across New Eng­land. We have tools and equip­ment need­ed to get your job done right the first time. Keep read­ing to learn more about what to con­sid­er when paint­ing your tilt-up build­ing and why Kaloutas is the team you want to call.

Appli­ca­tion Thick­ness and Per­for­mance for Indus­tri­al Paint

What do you want your indus­tri­al paint coat­ings to do? Are they mere­ly aes­thet­ic or do you need them to work hard­er to pro­tect your struc­ture? The process for paint­ing tilt-up con­struc­tion isn’t the same as for paint­ing oth­er com­mer­cial exte­ri­ors, and not all paint­ing con­trac­tors under­stand this. There are many fac­tors such as tex­ture, thick­ness, and usage that must be con­sid­ered when prepar­ing to paint tilt-up con­struc­tion. When it comes to the per­for­mance and longevi­ty of your tilt-up con­crete coat­ings, don’t pri­or­i­tize a good deal over a last­ing paint job.

Match Indus­tri­al Paint Col­or to Build­ing Texture

Now let’s talk col­ors. There are many things to keep in mind when select­ing the best indus­tri­al paint col­or for your struc­ture. First off, under­stand that high­ly tex­tured con­crete will show­case your col­ors dif­fer­ent­ly, so you’ll want to test col­ors on your unique sur­face to get a feel for the end result. You’ll want to select paint col­ors that work well with your logo, but stay away from any­thing too bright, as the col­ors will fade over time.

Weath­er and Mois­ture Matter

Weath­er and mois­ture make a huge dif­fer­ence in the longevi­ty of your paint and coat­ings, espe­cial­ly when it comes to tilt-up con­crete. The mois­ture lev­els in con­crete can impact the life of your paint and coat­ings, espe­cial­ly if the dew point gets with­in 5 degrees of the dew point of your con­crete. The bot­tom line is that you need to be look­ing for a paint­ing con­trac­tor who under­stands the specifics of your build­ing and has expe­ri­ence with tilt-up con­crete paint­ing. Rush­ing into a job while ignor­ing the weath­er and mois­ture con­di­tions isn’t worth it in the end, and the Kaloutas team under­stands this.
