Surface prep is exactly what it sounds like. It is the process of preparing an old or new surface, whether it be a type of metal or concrete for the application of new product. This is done for a variety of reasons, ranging from a necessity for protection purposes, to something as simple as wanting to modernize a mostly steal structure building with outdated colors to something modern and fresh. This can be done through several methods.
High Pressure Hot Wash is one method that is sometimes required when the surface needs some improvement, but nothing too abrasive. Sandblasting and Bristle Blasting are more aggressive methods of surface preparation that require the use of sand funneled at high speeds through a spray gun or with bristle blasting a very abrasive bristle brush. Acid Etching, Concrete Grinding, and Shot Blasting are primarily types of surface floor prep that we offer as well.
