Equipment & Application
Equipment and Experience matter!
The final finish depends on surface preparation combined with a skilled application process. Spectrum's combination of commercial grade equipment, product knowledge and application experience ensures the best results for any project.
Cutting costs on substandard products will not produce professional, lasting results. Painting and coating surfaces the right way, the first time, protects the investment you have made in your home or business.
Today's paints and surface coatings are chemically engineered to bond with different types of materials. There are hundreds of products on the market developed specifically for metals, woods, BRICK, and masonry.
Especially with pre-coated surfaces, we work closely with our vendors and their chemists to select products that are chemically compatible for strong adhesion, providing protection that lasts.
When it comes to surface preparation, large and small jobs alike can often require a combination of hand scraping, chemical applications and power equipment. This is a crucial step to delivering a smooth finish, excellent adherence and lasting protection for your structure.
Each and every member of our crews are experienced professionals and have been trained in all restoration and application methods. Our company stresses the importance of safety on every jobsite. With this attention to proper training and adherence to all OSHA regulations, you can always expect a clean jobsite and a clean finish.
Commercial Powerwashing Equipment
There's more to it than PSI!
PSI is simply 'pounds per square inch' of pressure. Fences, decks and houses for example require much less PSI than industrial paint stripping and PSI must always be carefully adjusted to prevent surface damage. While too much can cause damage, not enough PSI won't get your job done at all.
Factoring in GPM or 'gallons per minute' is where true efficiency is rated. GPM determines the total job time required.
Commercial grade equipment typically provides twice the GPM as a unit that can be rented at a 'big box store'. Simply put, a 4 gallon per minute pump will be more efficient.
We have the commercial grade equipment required to get your job done right... and on time.
Whether it would be a simple scraper, sandpaper, grinder, chemicals or powerwasherwe know what to do! Although sprayers are impressive, most work is performed with quality brushes and rollers.
