Painting Metal Surfaces:
No matter what type of metal you plan to work with preparation again is very important. Some metals are galvanized and need pre-treatment in order for paint to properly adhere to the surfaces correctly. We use a wire brush or various sanding agents to rough up the surface of the metal and/or remove rust. Then we wipe off the surface using a damp cloth to remove all the dust. Next we prime the metal using a special rust-inhibitor metal primer immediately after this preparation to discourage flash rusting. On previously painted metal doors, we sand down any glossy paint and wash any oily residue off the metal. The paint chosen depends heavily on the type of metal you are painting and many other project details. If you are painting an aluminum surface, then a water-based acrylic paint should be used. For copper and bronze surfaces, you use an oil or acrylic paint. During our consultation we will determine the best paint to use and application process.
Vinyl Siding Painting:
When painting vinyl it is imperative as in any surface to clean it properly. We begin with a full pressure washing of the home and wiping areas as necessary. The most important thing to remember when painting vinyl is that you can only paint vinyl a lighter shade than its current colour. If you paint the surface darker the vinyl will warp.
Lacquer is used in many forms. Many people are unsure of what lacquer really is. The definition of a lacquer is “a liquid made of shellac dissolved in alcohol, or of synthetic substances that dries to form a hard protective coating for wood, metal, etc.” We are experienced with using lacquer to cover many areas of a home’s interior such as wood trim, doors, windows frames and sills, and furniture.
Lacquer comes in oil based and water based and now a hybrid combination of each. There are pros and cons to each depending on the project characteristics. We are experienced in using both so we will work with our clients determine the best solution for their project.
