Baking Soda Blasting
Pressurized baking soda blasting is an environmentally friendly alternative to traditional abrasive sand blasting. It removes paint and contaminate without harming the underlying surface. Benefits are: Water Soluble, No pitting or warping, Nontoxic and Non-hazardous, Removes grease, Works quickly and Neutralizes Surface Rust.
The removal of graffiti can be difficult and costly using conventional methods. Soda blasting provides a non-damaging, cost-efficient alternative. Soda blasting is a non-abrasive media that can be used to remove graffiti on brick, sandstone, marble, and other surfaces without pitting or damaging the surface. Using a wet blasting nozzle provides a nearly dust-free method of cleaning.
Soda blasting is the perfect choice for fire restoration and smoke damage because it is the fastest and most effective tool available for removing soot and cleaning lightly charred building materials. Since baking soda is considered a non-destructive and non-abrasive media, it will clean soot from all framing members of a building without damaging the wood and provides a superior "sanded" finish on most surfaces. Soda blasting will remove smoke damage on wood, concrete, brick, stone, ceramic, glass and mortar, thereby reducing the cost of replacing expensive building materials and saving a lot of demolition and re-construction. It will not compromise the structural integrity of any building. Baking soda will help absorb the smoke odor while it is cleaning. It is environmentally safe, has no toxic fumes or chemical solvents, is non-sparking, non-flammable and water soluble.
Boat Bottom Blasting
Baking Soda blasting is fast, cost effective and flexible. We have become experts in boat bottom blasting. Our efficient and environmentally sound process allows us to quickly strip bottom paint without damaging the gel and/or barrier coat and, most significantly, without leaving a mess. Our work is completed with the marina environment in mind; we work quickly, efficiently and confirm none of the stripping by products (media, stripped paint, plastic, etc.) escape to the yard or nearby water. Soda blasting will prepare the surface for gel coat repair, possible application of an epoxy barrier coating and application of new anti-fouling bottom paint.
Interior & Exterior Painting
Different paints have different properties, and are formulated for various purposes. Interior paint is made to be scrubbed, resist staining, and permit cleaning. Exterior paints are made to combat against fading and mildew Interior paint is formed to be scrubbed, resist staining, and permit cleaning. Exterior paints are made to combat against fading and mildew. When starting a painting project, it is vital to understand the differences between the 2 and choose the proper paint.
All paint is made of the same basic ingredients: solvent, resin, additives, and pigments. To catch abreast of the variable temperature conditions that paint on exterior walls will experience, exterior paint contains flexible resins that keep paint looking good when the surface underneath expands and contracts.
Epoxy Floor Coatings
Epoxy coatings are durable coatings which will be used for a spread of purposes from strong adhesives to durable paint and coatings for floors and metals. Epoxy coatings are created through the generation of a reaction using an epoxide resin and a polymine hardener.
Epoxy floor coatings are commonly used for commercial and industrial flooring. Epoxy coatings are normally applied over concrete floors to provide a high-performance, smooth, and durable surface that can last many years and withstand heavy loads. Many industrial sites, warehouses, and commercial buildings rely on epoxy floors to maintain clean and safe conditions for workers, equipment, and inventory.
Airless Spray Painting
An airless sprayer works by pumping paint at a really high , up to 3,000 psi, through a hose and out a small hole within the applicator tip. The tip is meant to interrupt up the paint evenly into a fan-shaped spray pattern of small droplets. First, the fine particles of paint don\t all stick with the surface.
Affordable Faux Finishes
Faux painting is using decorative paint to make finishes that are different from the particular wall. A concrete wall, for instance , is formed to appear wooden. Faux paint is usually used to replicate a wood, stone, brick or marble look. Though most people assume that faux is fake and therefore inferior, that couldn’t be further from the truth. It can instantly transform your home from basic to brilliant. It updates your house and takes it from one era to a another with every stroke of paint. Transform your bland wall with faux finishes that change the textures as well.

Textured Ceiling Painting & Spraying
Applying drywall compound to walls requires skill, and even then, large wall expanses can show taped joints. Applying drywall compound smoothly to ceilings is even more difficult. Residential ceilings that feature drywall often have a textured finish, which hides taping imperfections by deflecting the sunshine . Textured ceilings are standard in most new homes, and you\ll find them in many existing homes also . If the ceiling has suffered a water leak or if you’re just uninterested in an equivalent look, a fresh coat of ceiling paint can brighten the whole room.
Drywall is comparatively simple to put in and straightforward to repair. It\s also easy to repair badly, which may leave a lumpy mess that declares "shoddy" to anyone who enters the space.
It\s best to do a repair with three or four thin coats of compound -- if possible leaving sanding for just the last coat. Also, "the most vital thing with a repair is to create the joint out wider than you would normally," says drywall contractor Rick Schwartz, who is secretary treasurer of Marietta Drywall in Marietta, Ga. The key\\s to go away a good and really shallow slope on all sides, he says.
