Scope of Work Proposed by TMI
In terms of the scope of work proposed by TMI, we will assess your facility, measure the areas to be coated with the Sherwin Williams elastomeric paint, and provide a detailed proposal listing the steps the building owner and TMI need to take to ensure a smooth and efficient process TMI has outlined some pre-work requirements.
Pre-Work Requirements from TMI
- The building owner needs to cut back or remove shrubs around the building to allow TMI open access to the walls. The owner should also relocate any nearby vehicles to minimize the risk of overspray. Additionally, the owner is responsible for identifying any sensitive equipment that needs to be protected by poly wrapping or covering. Finally, any signage should be removed and reinstalled on the building upon project completion.
- For the best results, TMI recommends that the owner remove the downspouts and replace them once the Sherwin-Williams elastomeric paint coating is applied. This will allow for proper coating and waterproofing behind the downspouts.
- TMI will prepare the surfaces for the new coating adhesion. Typically, this will involve high-pressure washing with a minimum of 4,000 psi pressure washers and hand and power tool cleaning. Any loose or delaminating coating material will be removed, while well-adhered material will remain.
What to Expect from the Project
You can expect a high-quality and long-lasting result for your building exterior by choosing TMI and Sherwin-Williams elastomeric paint.
TMI will provide a warranty for the work performed. The specific length and coverage of the warranty will be discussed and documented in the contract between TMI and the building owner.
It is important to note that the timeline for the project will depend on various factors, such as weather conditions, the condition of the surfaces, and the size of the area to be painted. TMI will work closely with the building owner to develop a detailed project schedule and provide regular updates.
Cost and Pricing
Cost and pricing: the project’s price will be determined based on the scope of work and materials required. TMI will provide a detailed and itemized quote for the project, outlining the cost of labor, materials, equipment, and any additional services requested.
Before starting the project, TMI will thoroughly inspect the building exterior to ensure that all necessary preparations are made, and the surfaces are suitable for painting. If any issues or additional requirements are identified during the inspection, TMI will communicate them to the building owner and discuss potential solutions.
In addition to the previous steps, TMI can also apply an elastomeric waterproof coating around the foundation of the walls. As part of the foundation preparation, TMI will remove any dirt, gravel, sod, or other debris around the foundation area. Once the waterproof coating is applied, TMI will replace the dirt/gravel/sod. The cost for the elastomeric waterproof coating will vary depending on the specific requirements and dimensions of the foundation area. TMI will provide a detailed and accurate quote for this additional scope of work.
