Prairie Village Hen House Facade Remodel and Repaint

Prairie Village Hen House Facade Remodel and Repaint
Over years of weathering and miscellaneous contractors adding and removing material to the façade at the Hen House in Prairie Village, it was time to renew the storefront. On the East elevation wood rot was caused by leaking gutters as well as failing paint. On the North elevation the complete façade had to be reworked due to water penetration causing excessive damage and wood rot.   East Elevation:  On the East elevation, approximately three wood sign panels were removed and replaced, latticed were reworked, new crown molding around the upper windows was installed, new gutters were installed, two faux columns were removed from the front entrance, and all of the columns received new trim. This elevation also received a fresh coat of PPG Exterior WeatherKing Satin Paint to match the existing color scheme.     North...IMG 0677 2

Important Maintenance Considerations for the Exterior of Your Commercial Building

When it comes to exterior maintenance of your building the most important thing to remember is, being proactive, rather than reactive on your building’s maintenance issues creates real value for the building owner. The list below highlights three key areas of exterior maintenance that you must keep an eye on at all times. Failing Paint: When a common person thinks of paint, what is their first thought? More times than not, and individual will say, “Well, paint is applied to buildings for aesthetical reasons. “ While this is one of the reasons, it usually isn’t the main objective in why something is being repainted. When paint is failing or is on its way to failure, this allows for the buildings substrate to then be exposed to outside elements and therefore allows for the possibility of deterioration. ...Failing Paint on Siding

Large Industrial Warehouse Brightened Up

Large Industrial Warehouse Brightened Up
Just to the North of Front Street and Chouteau in Kansas City's Northeast Industrial District resides a large distribution center. The 240,000 square foot facility previously occupied by long time tenant, Ozburn-Hessey, was in need for some new curb appeal due to decades of wear and tear from everyday logistics operations. Scope: Inside this facility, Major Painting's focus was on brightening up the dark warehouse. With poor lighting and a tight budget, it made the most sense to repaint all of the interior walls white in order to brighten the space. The columns were all repainted white and with safety yellow stretching from the floor to nine foot up, giving the warehouse and extra pop as well as preventing the columns from blending in with one another. In total 700 gallons of PPG SPEEDHIDE, 75 gallons...Commercial Repaint Industrial

EFIS Repair: Sign Removal

EFIS Repair: Sign Removal
Exterior insulation finishing system or better known as EIFS, is an insulated, water-resistant system installed on the exteriors of building elevations such as our homes and businesses. In the last decade EFIS has become a very popular finish for many retail centers and stand alone stores due to its superior energy efficiency. While there are many benefits to EFIS, there is one small cosmetic concern when it comes to commercial buildings: As tenants leave their spaces and signs are removed from the facade, the EFIS facade many times is damaged, leaving the retail center not as physically appealing, therefore possibly turning away potential tenants. Below you will learn more about how Major Painting can make the your buildings damaged EFIS facade areas look more cosmetically sound! Problem: The North American Savings Bank, NSAB, recently purchased two new locations from...Before Stucco Repair
