Painting and Restoring Midwest Infrastructure
Communities all across the Midwest need to maintain critical infrastructure. All of the gear, facilities, and machinery that keep a town functioning smoothly. What follows are a few types of infrastructure that need regular paint maintenance and restoration.
Fashioned out of steel, bridges are in need of regular maintenance. Paint failure on a bridge is a major safety hazard, so the slightest sign of corrosion must be remedied and quickly. If a bridge's structural steel suffers from rust or corrosion, the failing coating must be removed, then painted with a new rust and corrosion-inhibiting coating.
Painters USA possesses the required experience, knowledge, and equipment necessary to paint bridges, as well as trestles, overpasses, and other exterior steel constructions related to bridges.
Like bridges, a community's power generating or transmission station is exposed to the elements. And since these structures are constructed out of steel, then they will also eventually suffer from rust and corrosion. Since an electrical power station supplies energy to many, many square miles, this sort of work can be a challenge. It requires the highest levels of safety and training, and years of experience, which many painting contractors just can't offer.
Scheduling can also be a unique challenge. Painting power generation and transmission plants will require painting contractors to work both with or without planned outages. Unique angles and oddly-shaped structures will also make coating difficult. Which means a steady, experienced hand is necessary.
Water Treatment Plants
Water and sewage treatment paints will require high-performance and durable coatings. Many abrasives and bacteria exist in water treatment facilities, which can eat away at paints and threaten the structural integrity of the containers. If these containers are not maintained, an environmental threat could present itself.
Like energy facilities, water treatment plants will create some scheduling demands as far as when the plants can be cycled off and on. Simply put, you do not want a fly-by-night contractor painting these facilities. Head over to our water treatment plant service page for more details.
