Albuquerque Commercial Painting
From start to finish you can count on Gallery Painting and our professional crews to make your painting experience, whether it be a re-paint or new paint project, "Simply The Best". Painting is not just about creating pleasing aesthetics, it's also about providing a protective finish which will prevent damage to the substrate it is applied to. Properly finishing or painting a surface can protect from mold growth, water penetration, eliminate smoke damage and may also prevent corrosion; in addition some finishes are fire retardant. When substrates are exposed to elements and have not been properly protected by the correct type of finish, the substrates can deteriorate and will need to be restored.
Environmentally Friendly Low VOC Paints
There are hundreds of products designed specifically for applications to particular substrates. Options range from low VOC (volatile organic compounds) environmentally friendly paints to extremely durable epoxy paints and moisture cured urethane coatings. Our staff and manufactures have the skill needed to choose the proper finish and paint application to conform to various standards including FDA, OSHA, NSF & USDA.
Most finishes can be applied during normal business hours and may not require a plant shut down or interruption of business during construction. We will evaluate and select the appropriate finish based on the customer and facilities exposure to the elements and conditions.
