Heard on the Job Site: Why We Used Pro Industrial

in Paint Innovations/Trending

All-Tech Decorating has produced great results for its customers with Pro Industrial™ high performance coatings. Dave Zajack, Estimator/Project Manager for the Romeoville, Ill.-based company, told us how two Pro Industrial products helped them on recent jobs:

Multi-Surface Acrylic E/S

“We were able to apply this product directly to exposed structure ceilings in a trucking hub that allowed to minimize the downtime for our customer as we were given one bay a time to paint,” Zajack says. “This product allowed us to reduce our prep time and did not require a prime coat, which allowed us to deliver areas back to the customer in short order.

“We love the versatility of this product. Being able to reduce prep and a prime coat have helped us to win jobs in the very competitive maintenance market.”

Urethane Alkyd Enamel

“We were painting structural steel beams and columns in a metal pan building ahead of the installation of the prefinished skin. Unfortunately, the metal panels came out the wrong color and our painted steel sat exposed to the elements for several months until the new panels arrived,” says Zajack.

“We painted the steel white with Urethane Alkyd Enamel, and it did not yellow at all. Also, there was very little touch-up to the steel after the panels were installed as it dried to a very durable finish.”

How his rep helps

“I love getting the opportunity to work with our Sherwin-Williams rep, Pat Coennen, to help solve our customers’ problems,” Zajack says.

“Pat and I regularly visit job sites to put together paint specs that work. We usually confirm these with adhesion tests prior to the work being awarded. We have been able to sell many jobs after providing the customer with the peace of mind that the paint system we have put forth will deliver the desired results. This challenge is made that much easier with the diverse products found in the Pro Industrial line.”
