Commercial Exterior Paint Company

We pride ourselves on the ability to provide an endless array of finishes at any level. This project on Tejon street in the HI-LO neighborhood provided us with the biggest challenges to date.

The most interesting is the use of cement panels as siding accents. We used semi-transparent concrete stain with thick naps and worked the stain in all directions once it became tacky. The outsome was incredible. A good portion of the exterior is lined with faux cement boards we produced on-site at a large volume.

The logs are local beetle kill pine stained with Sikkens log and siding stain. The doors are also stained with Sikkens as well as numerous other wood applications. This project consisted of some of the most modern and contemporary finishes we have completed to date.

Metallic Walls – Contemporary Silver

This media room in Keystone, Colorado is one of many contemporary finishes in one of our favorite client’s homes. Painting metallic paint on this large of a scale took some patience, as well as a special air-assisted sprayer (HVLP-like) to get a quality finish. We tried a handful of samples using rollers and each sample left lines and markings from the roller naps. We masked off the entire room (including the enormous outer-space light lamp) and got started.

We quickly realized that it would take a light fogging of 3 coats to get the smooth finish we were after. We also applied a water-based polyurethane to bring a more brilliant look to the metallic finish.

Once we completed the last polyurethane coat,  the walls almost lit-up from the reflective light on the glass like metallic surface.
