KNCP Buildings Exterior Repaint
This job was a complete exterior repaint of three buildings in a commercial park that have had a long history of severe cracking and leaking on the concrete tilt-up panels. The job consisted of a large amount of epoxy injection into the cracks. (This work was performed by Concrete Restoration, Inc.) This project was run by lead painter Gustavo, along with a crew of painters.
- Complete removal and replacement of every tilt seam and expansion joint on each building.
- Complete removal and reinstallation of all the downspouts and scuppers on each building.
- Patching of all remaining cracks that did not receive epoxy injection.
- Painting two heavy coats of elastomeric paint.
"Our customers and the engineers involved were very impressed and happy with the quality of work and level of communication."
SKIS Painting performed the complete removal and replacement of every tilt seam and expansion joint on each building; complete removal and reinstallation of all downspouts and scuppers on each building; patching of all remaining cracks that did not receive epoxy injection; and painting two heavy coats of elastomeric paint.
Throughout this job, an engineering firm and consulting agency performed nondestructive and destructive testing to evaluate the quality of work we were doing. This involved continuous measuring of wet paint mills, cutting out samples for testing, measuring of dry paint mills, and performing adhesion tests of both the elastomeric coatings and adhesion of the tilt-seam sealant. The testing also included removing random sections of the tilt seams and measuring them for proper installation and strict adherence to the specifications noted.
We are proud to say Gustavo and his team performed very well, passing every test with high grades. All the measurements came back at the high end of the scale—meaning they did not skimp on anything. The SKIS screw provided a top-notch, high-quality paint job while working in a stressful jobsite with significant scrutiny and very high visibility to the client.
During this job we worked closely with six busy tenants who have hundreds of trucks coming in and out of their buildings every day. The paint crew worked late into the night—working under floodlights on many occasions—and most Saturday and Sundays to minimize the impact on tenants.
The painters completed this project with no tenant complaints; one tenant even put the paint crew in their monthly employee achievement award drawing due to how impressed they were with the ease of the project. Our clients and the engineers involved were impressed and happy with the quality of work and level of communication they received.
