Maintain and Preserve Exterior Metal Paneling

Despite our best efforts, we do judge a book by its cover, people by their clothing and a building by its outward appearance. First impressions set the stage for everything that follows. Curb appeal can be a deal breaker for a sale - whether you are trying to sell a building, promote products or services from a company inside, lease condos in a high-rise or sell tickets for a performance.

Thus, exterior metal and steel with rust, oxidation spots or other unsightly deformities could cost real money in lost business or contribute to a poor reputation. Inspecting, maintaining and protecting metal is sensible to protect not only your revenue stream, but also your investment. It is incredible how much damage a pin hole or expanding rust issue can cause. Pollution, sunlight, weather, salt from winter road treatment and myriad environmental and man-made factors (like jack hammers digging up a sidewalk nearby) can adversely impact and potentially compromise the strength and durability of exterior metal beyond the appearance.

Paintworks & Decorating possesses years of experience and tons of knowledge in metal maintenance. Based in Manhattan and serving the greater New York City region, Westchester County, and parts of northern New Jersey, the company embraces that a good defense for metal preservation is a positive offense with inspections, appropriate cleaning and sealing or painting.

Cleaning and painting outside metal is not a DIY job or task for the faint-hearted or unskilled. Treatment before painting can include chemical solutions, etch primers and/or sweep blasting. Let Paintworks do what they do best for exterior metal treatments and preservation, so you can spend your time doing whatever you do best.

Painting Industrial Warehouses in Long Island City

The industrial scene was already burgeoning in Long Island City well before the announcement of the new Amazon headquarters. With quick access to Manhattan, Bronx, and Queens, Long Island City is an ideal place to have an industrial or commercial facility.

Paintworks and Decorating has painted many warehouses in L.I.C. We had an especially good time helping to refresh this warehouse used by a telecommunications company. The warehouse was looking grungey as the walls were dirty with years of work and very little cleaning. There was failing paint everywhere. Using multiple high powered spray machines and scissor lifts we were able to renew the warehouse with fresh paint very quickly.

Painting Industrial Facilities In Long Island City

Being based in Long Island City gives us a great opportunity to help other businesses in the bustling industrial area. This local company was moving to a new facility that desperately needed refreshing and a new identity. The client chose their brands colors to adorn the doors, trim, and walls. The exterior roll-up garage doors were covered in rust and failing coatings. We used a industrial strength wire brush to grind off the failings coatings then painted with UV resistant paint to help protect the doors longer. With our state of the art fancy-schmancy spray machine, the T-9, we were able to paint this facility in efficient fashion.

Painting The Interior of Brooklyn Private School Poly Prep

Maintaining a school of any size can be quite the challenge with kids and staff running around on a daily basis. When Poly Prep called us it was during their summer break as they were looking to refresh the school before the next school year. The great thing about hiring painting contractors as needed for a facility like this is the flexibility. Whether they want to paint all or part of the school, we are there for them. The above pictures show a recently painted classroom, dance studio, and common area. We fix any wear and tear on the walls and trim before painting with high-traffic paint. We have the scaffolding and experience to complete tricky projects that are typically involved with maintenance painting. Throughout the school's offseason we were always available to prep and paint before the current condition of any wall or ceiling got too bad. This is a beautiful school rich with historic details that need to be maintained and cared for properly. We are honored to work on a school that has impacted lives in the community for over 150 years.
