NYC Fire Escape Violation Correction

This building owner contacted us after receiving a violation from the city regarding the condition of the fire escapes. In order to correct the situation and avoid future violations we began by grinding off failing coatings and rust with orbital grinder. We then primed the fire escapes with rust converter and painted with uv resistant industrial coatings to help the fire escapes withstand the elements. This satisfied the city requirements bringing the fire escapes back up to code. Maintenance for fire escapes is important due to the sun exposure and weather elements like rain and snow. We were happy to tackle this project.

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.
