BASE PAINTERS WINS 1ST PLACE AT THE 2020 COATINGS PRO CONTRACTOR AWARDS PROGRAM

Gilding the gold dome



Award winners were announced during a virtual presentation on June 17, 2020

Arvada, CO – 6/9/20 – On June 17, 2020, BASE Painters was awarded 1st place in the Specialty Project category for CoatingsPro Magazine’s fourth annual Contractor Awards Program. The program was designed to showcase and recognize the projects and crews that demonstrate excellence in the field of high-performance commercial and industrial coatings.

Project and individual submissions were rated by the CoatingsPro Editorial Advisory Group, composed of industry experts. Due to the novel coronavirus disease of 2019 (COVID-19) the magazine was unable to present the awards in person during NACE International’s annual conference. They were celebrated instead in the magazine’s first virtual award presentation.

BASE Painter’s winning project: Colorado State Capitols Dome Painting Warranty Project. During the summer of 2018 & 2019, the company removed failed coatings on the golden dome down to bare copper with vapor blasters and repainted with a long-lasting Sherwin Williams Fluorokem HS product The failed coatings were initially installed by a third party during the 2016 multimillion-dollar rehabilitation of the State Capitols building exterior and dome.

You won’t fly into the radio towers we paint!!






Painting self support towers is one of our specialties.  With this tower we teamed up with Anchor Paint to use their proprietary Flexi-Coat Aviation Coating Series to paint the orange and white bands to FAA color and gloss standards. 

Hundreds of Turkey Vultures and Black Vultures regularly roost on this tower so prep work was of the utmost importance to establish a good foundation before the application of the coating.  Prep work consisted of pressure washing, hand and power tool cleaning to remove built up dirt and rust (SSPC 1, 2, 3).   

Tower banding was first introduced to towers back in 1930's to provide a contrasting background from the tower and sky so aviators could easily see them and gauge how tall they might be.  Towers are divided into bands depending on their height, for example a tower less than 700' will have 7 bands and towers up to 900' will have 9 bands and so forth.

How does an elevated water tower get painted?




Elevated water tank painting is something we pride ourselves in.  Tnemec is the supplier of the Hydroflon V700 paint that protects this 1.5 million gallon water tank.  Hydroflon is a fluoropolymer  which is an excellent choice if the client wants a coating that will last 20 years.  This tank supplies water to well over 100,000 residents of its fair city.  It stands proud with its new paint job and is ready to take on the next 20 years of its service life.

Certified FAA/FCC compliant tower painting




Check out a few before and after shots of a tower we painted with aviation orange and white in California.  Sitting atop an Art Deco building on Nob Hill in San Francisco, designed by architect Albert Larsen this tower was one of the first in the area.  This structure was originally an RCA broadcast radio tower built around the 1930's to deliver clear reception to the city.   We used PPG's PSX One on this tower with excellent results to preserve the old strap steel.  Turning a dilapidated tower into a beacon that shines for miles and lights up the San Francisco skyline is truly rewarding.

The logos on water tanks are the best advertisements.








Tank logo repainting   We repainted the logo on this 1.5 million gallon elevated water storage tank.  Using Tnemec's  Hydroflon 700 was an excellent choice for longevity and gloss retention.  The exterior first had to be cleaned with 5000PSI water and bleach to remove all the mold and mildew before we could repaint the logo.  The job also consisted of removing bio-growths on the wet interior of the tank before cleaning and disinfection per AWWA 652 standards
