For this interior warehouse restoration project, we converted painted brick walls and wood ceilings (surfaces that had required maintenance such as repainting, etc) to maintenance-free surfaces. The warehouse was very old and in need of updating.
We were brought in to help bring this old warehouse back to life. An “all natural” beauty products company was to assume possession after the restoration. Therefore, we wanted to help leave the interior warehouse as natural as possible.
One of the main objectives of this project was to take painted surface, remove the paint and leave the surface natural. There was some demolition done in advance of our portion of the project, such as removal of the existing drywall from the ceiling, removal of almost all existing contents, etc. We were brought in to first remove the existing paint and restore the original brick walls. The picture above to the right shows the brick wall with the existing paint before the blasting.
The next step was blasting the wood ceilings to clean up the appearance and remove any existing paint or buildup accumulated over the years. The first side by side below shows a closer look at the wood ceiling: the left side has partial removal of the drywall, with the completely restored natural wood ceiling on the right.
After blasting the ceiling clean came our last step, pressure washing of all interior surfaces to remove any residual dust from the dry blasting process. By blasting and removing the existing paint, the brick walls and wood ceilings are now left natural and maintenance-free, meaning no repainting or additional work needs to be done.
Do you or someone you know have a surface with paint failure problems that would be better “maintenance-free”? If so, give us a call. We can help. Thank you for reading our blog.
