Metal Painting Service
What is metal painting?
Metals frequently found on Quebec’s buildings are: iron, steel, galvanized zinc and aluminum. These require a paint that is adapted to each of them and it is essential to match the right products to the right substrates. Moreover, we must consider not only the metal but also the substrate on which the paint will adhere because we often paint a surface with paint from different origins. Let’s see the characteristics for each.
- Iron and steel are frequently used for large wall coverings such as on warehouses, factories, and commercial and industrial buildings. The disadvantage of iron is that it rusts when under bad weather. It is thus important to do a proper maintenance. We always recommend an excellent anticorrosion treatment in order to prevent rust appearance or reappearance. Then, the application of a vapor barrier paint will help keep the moisture from getting into the oxidable iron.
- Aluminum, which is more expensive but less hard, won’t really corrode. It may oxidize with time if it’s not covered. Several options are possible to paint on aluminum which is less capricious than iron. Depending on the inspection done by our estimator, we will provide a complete report concerning the process and suggested products.
- Cement blocks and other types masonries such as stucco or brick are other types of warehouse walls and they require an entirely different approach and products’ family. Masonries also breathe and act like sponges when it rains heavily. It is thus important to choose carefully products like acrylics which will allow breathing while limiting the «sponge» absorption when it is rainy. This can be reached using special stains or well-chosen paints.
All of these metals can be painted by our team using a spray gun after having been pressure washed.
