Overkill. That is the underlying principle behind how I am able to offer a 5 year warranty on my work. Case in point – the Sherwin Williams Pro Industrial Waterbased Alkyd Urethane paint I applied to these metal windows in Greystone, Hoover, AL. Roughly 20 years old and still with a factory smooth finish on these windows, I elected to go to the extra trouble of masking off and spraying these windows with a product I hope lasts just as long as the factory coating. Did it take a lot of time? Yes. But far more important to me than getting things done quickly is knowing I have provided a superior product.
Some people in painting social media groups I’m in have wondered why I didn’t just spend 20 minutes brushing them and be done with it… if they already had brush marks on them I would have. But that original factory coating, although oxidizing and sorely in need of a repaint, was still perfectly smooth and in incredible shape, and I wanted to preserve that.
Speaking of overkill, if you’ll click on the paint link above, you’ll see what this product is actually meant for: structural steel, healthcare facilities, equipment, and machinery. It’s meant to take a beating in an industrial environment and last a long, long time. Is your house perhaps a bit neglected? Would you like to truly have peace of mind about it? Book me. Much more to come on this house soon.
