Building Painting and Restoration

Building painting and restoration projects are typically to solve moisture intrusion, substrate deterioration or aesthetic concerns.  We like to solve all 3 at the same time.

At TMI Coatings, our focus is on safety and quality.  Our knowledgeable sales people meet with you to understand the scope of work required to complete your building painting and restoration project. A proposal will be submitted listing the scope of work required to complete your project including a step-by-step explanation of what is to be done, proposed materials, cost to perform the work, time frame in which the work will be done, and a warranty.

At TMI, customer satisfaction is a top priority, not just for our sales staff, but also for our Superintendents and applicators. Job Leaders are responsible for your project from start to finish, overseeing all surface preparation, installation, and clean up for each and every job we do. Job Leaders put their signatures on all jobs when completed — their personal guarantee that quality work has been performed. Our Job Leaders are rewarded for your positive feedback. At the end of every job, TMI sends a Service Evaluation Comment Card. If you feel you received a quality job completed in a timely manner, the Job Leader in charge of your project is given a bonus. This incentive assures you a quality job and TMI is assured of a happy customer.

Building Exterior Restoration by Tuckpointing

TMI Coatings was hired by a Fortune 500 company  to perform building restoration work on the exterior of their grain elevator facility. The 7,000 sq. ft. of older brick was pressure washed to clean and identify repair areas. Tuckpointing was performed on thousands of sq. ft. of wall surfaces where mortar joints in the brick were badly deteriorated. An elastomeric coating was installed on the entire wall surface to ensure a waterproof finish. A blue accent line was applied on the top portion of the building to create an aesthetically pleasing finish. The customer was very pleased with the quality of the work and our ability to complete work on time.

Tuckpointing

Metal Building Painting

After waterblasting to clean the surfaces TMI applies two full coats quality paint coating material to the exterior corrugated steel per manufacturer’s recommendations. First coat is a quality metal primer and the top coat is an acrylic gloss finish. TMI provides a 5 year labor and material warranty against excessive chalking, peeling, or flaking.
