Rustoleum – Kenosha, WI
Project: Exterior Paint
To prepare for this exterior paint job, we started by power washing all surfaces to remove residue. The mildewed areas were scrubbed using a bleach and water solution. All of the loose and peeling paint was scraped and the bare masonry was spot primed with one coat of exterior masonry primer. As for the rusted areas, we applied a stain remover and chipped away any loose concrete around the rust stains. A coat of rust inhibitive and corrosion resistant acrylic metal primer was applied where needed. Finally, a paintable caulk was applied to cover the exposed steel.
Once the prep work was completed, one coat of 100% acrylic latex flat paint was applied to the older sections of the building, matching the existing new building section colors.
We were able to commit to a short time frame and out of town logistics to complete this project. We appreciate the opportunity to work with this reputable company.
Capital One Volo Data Center – Volo, IL
Project: Interior Lobby, Restrooms and Exterior Storage Tanks
AAA Painting Contractors power washed all surfaces to be painted to remove all residue. We then chiseled away loose mil scale rust from the corroded surfaces. Using power tool’s, we cleaned all rusted surfaces and spot primed with one coat of a moisture tolerant solvent-free epoxy that possesses several qualities that are ideal for the Midwest environment. First, it has excellent anti-corrosive properties. It can also be applied over medium flash rust. It has excellent edge retention capabilities helping it cover the most difficult to coat sharp edges. Lastly, it has great substrate and intercoat adhesion, which allows it to be applied to marginally prepared surfaces. A full prime coat was applied to the base of the silo where it contacts the concrete pad.
Painting the exterior of 3 storage tanks, supports and coordinating electrical cabinets was what made this project unique. We appreciate the opportunity to work with Capital One on this project.
