Minimize Energy Loss in Your Commercial Building

Drafty Buildings If your building is starting to show signs of age, is feeling drafty, and your utilities seem to be at an all-time high, chances are it may be time to take a closer look at some of the causes and solutions. Aging buildings settle, creating cracks and openings that allow heating or cooling to escape. Other areas that start showing age are windows and doors, where caulking has dried, cracked, and fallen out, no longer providing a proper seal. Additionally, doors may not close properly or "hang up" when closing, as the building shifts, allowing drafts and running up your utility costs. Left unattended, these cracks can develop into gaps as the wood dries out or masonry disintegrates, inviting insects and becoming mold growth-friendly. This will lead to other problems such as mildew in...high-rise apartment buildings

Why Your Commercial Building Needs a Roof Coating Today

The natural wear and tear which comes with time can eat away at the roof of your commercial property. Before you know it, your building is springing leaks whenever it rains and suffering structural damage as a result. Applying a silicone roof coating to your commercial space provides a new, added layer of protection. You’ll fend off further damage, saving you the costly effort of repairing major damages. If you’re considering getting work done on your roof, here are a few great reasons to opt for roof coating restoration. Waterproof Seal Once applied, the silicon coating creates a single protective layer over your entire roof.

Factors That Affect Painting Project Timelines

One of the main concerns a customer has when it comes to their property being painted is how long the job will take. This isn't always such a simple question to answer. Of course, there is a standard to base time on, such as project size, whether it is a new or existing construction, if there is any damage, or other factors. However, consider and budget time for these other variables that are bound to come along. Building and Structure The building itself can determine whether a project may be quick and easy or a challenge. Size plays an important role in establishing a project timeline. The greater number of rooms and surface area to be painted will influence the project scope.

Preparing to Paint in Winter

For homeowners planning to take on a painting project this winter, either indoor or outdoor, special considerations must be made before moving forward with the painting. A winter paint job requires more preparations and proper procedures. Cold weather is drier than warmer weather and cripples the drying process of a standard paint job. If you expect worsening conditions such as ice, sleet, or snow, the drying process of the will stall, and the paint will remain wet. If it is necessary to paint in the cold winter weather, shoot for a sunny day, especially for exterior surfaces, and consider these other painting factors.  Priming Any area you intend to paint should be primed first unless the primer is mixed in with the paint. The primer is essential to ensure that the new paint will stick and bond...two-story home with flat roof in evening during wintertime

Effectively Paint Corners and Edges

Paint rollers are great and allow painters to cover a lot of surface area, but they are not very effective for all the detail work required in almost every painting project. Fortunately, there are some tools and techniques that can make painting tricky edges and corners noticeably easier. Protection First You know what surface you want to paint, but there are probably plenty of nearby surfaces you want to avoid painting. Always protect adjacent surfaces you don't want to paint with drop cloths and/or painter's tape. For example, FrogTape can keep the paint bleeding that sometimes occurs even with traditional blue painter's tape. It's also a good idea to have a clean, damp rag or paper towel nearby to immediately wipe up unwanted splatters and drips. Corners  There's just no other way around it; you need...corner of room with door and baseboard trim
