Selecting Factory Exterior Painting Contractor
Factory Exterior Painting covers all components of exterior painting for factories. This includes cleanup, application, and preparation. Unlike non-industrial painting projects, factory painting jobs are massive and require a different approach to work on. For starters, painting factory exteriors requires that you first clean the facility by power washing it. Power washing rids the exterior walls of dust and grime, using abrasives. If the walls have an existing layer of paint, you use water pressure jets to remove the paint. Once the walls are clean, you’ll need to tape the windows and doors to prevent bits of spray paint from getting into the factory interior.
The next step after cleaning is applying the primer. This forms the base of the project, ensuring that you have a smooth application of the factory exterior paint. The walls are then left to dry off before proceeding to the next step of the project. Please note that you have to wait several days for the primer to dry off properly. It is only after the primer is dry that you can proceed to apply the topcoat. For exterior walls, various types and grades of paint can be used. Also, most Factory Exterior Painting jobs are done with pressure feed sprayers that consume too much time, especially for large project units. There is also the problem of overspray that can mess your entire project. The good thing is expert painters can control any overspray by applying an electro-charge to fast track the drying process of each paint layer. After the final layer of paint has completely dried, the tapes on the windows and doors are removed.
During factory painting, there is nothing left that can cause a spark as paints are inflammable. Specific fire and safety procedures need to be maintained while painting factory walls. Proper licenses must also be applied before starting the job.
The role of an Industrial exterior painting contractor
As earlier mentioned, factory painting jobs are different from normal painting projects. These require the use of an expert painting contractor that has experience working on large scale projects. Depending on the project requirements, the contractor will determine the equipment and workmen that they will need. Different tools and equipment are used to paint factory exteriors. Exterior painting, as already mentioned, is done the traditional way, starting with a wash, then primer, and finally painting. A spraying machine is used.
