Metal painting is a specialized type of painting. It requires different techniques than other surfaces, like drywall, wood and other more porous materials. That’s why it’s important to hire a professional who is knowledgeable and experienced in painting metal.
Prepping the Metal Surface Is the Key to Success
Preparation is critical when painting metal to ensure the quality and longevity of the finish. Without proper prep, the project will surely fail. ACP has successfully painted metal surfaces for hundreds of customers since we’ve been in business. We strictly follow proper prep techniques so that the outcome is perfect.
Once the primer is completely dry and cured, the painting process can begin.We apply the paint by airless spray using low pressure tips. The paint we use is industrial grade water-based alkyd urethane enamel paint. This paint is ideal for metal structures that get a lot of use and are exposed to the elements. It is extremely durable, yet aesthetically pleasing. It also meets the most stringent VOC regulations.

ACP Painting responds to requests for metal painting from Homeowners Associations, local government officials, construction companies, property managers and commercial landscapers.
