We discuss the project with you, answer your questions, measure the structure, detail how we will fix any repairs that need to be made prior to installation and choose your color(s).
Depending on the scope of the project, we can complete necessary repairs and power wash your structure in a day or two.
Windows, doors, plants and any other areas you do not want sprayed are masked off with tape and plastic. Typically taking one day, we mask with extreme precision for clean finished lines.
We will arrive in the early morning to start application of the first coat. Each coat takes about a day to dry and cure. If we are spraying a flat roof, additional layers of waterproofing are needed. Application of the second coat ensures a smooth and flawless finish. *Drying times vary depending on temperature and humidity.
The last day of the process involves the final inspection to your approval and our standards. We remove masking and clean the work site extensively.
We leave you with a beautiful, environmentally friendly and energy efficient structure.
