Metal Items: Direct to Metal Coatings in Chicago & Evanston, IL
Why pay for powder coating your metal items when you can use high performance direct to metal coatings?
You Don't Know What You Don’t Know
On a custom property there are many different substrates that need to be maintained, and the metal items on these properties are no different. Metal items are generally powder coated, which is pricey and overkill when compared to high performance coatings that net similar, if not better, results.
Vetting and Testing for Performance and Finish
In many cases, high performance coatings for metal surfaces have a better finish than powder coatings and are formulated for extreme adhesion and protection from the elements. To ensure adequate performance, it is necessary to select products appropriate for the market and climate so that you achieve the desired performance outcome.
It’s an Aesthetic WOW Factor
Direct to metal coatings on the metal items that make up a custom property are a major aesthetic upgrade that often go overlooked until after the coatings are applied. Freshly coated metal items can create a wow factor once coated.
Going Above and Beyond
