Painting a pole barn and other structures will encompass more than most
people can imagine. Even those who have painted pole barns are often surprised
by the number of details involved. I will not
say anyone can paint a pole barn, for obvious reasons. However, those who are conditioned to getting on and off
a ladder, and have the ability to work with hand tools and paint, can probably do well when they have the know how or have
access to some expert guidance. Some will say who is he to tell me…..I
have been doing this since….And I say you are blessed with experience
if that is so.
For you folks who have other structures that need painting, I am sure this guide will serve your purposes also.
For example: Galvanized Quonset buildings, corrugated galvanized metal
clad builds, and galvanized feed storage bins often need rehabilitated with minor repairs and a good long lasting paint.
You can buy the best paint for these jobs at Wienert Mfg.
Co. To buy direct call 417-752-3210 or drop by.
See the address above and directions in menu above.
When you walk in ask for Bob Wienert. He is a paint
expert too. He can advise on colors as well as suggested products.
Other around home and on the farm painting such as Galvanized Steel Sided
Buildings, Steel Panel Buildings, Wood or Steel Pipe Fences, Gates, or Corrals can all be protected using “Grab em Paint”.
It is simply the BEST PAINT for the job!” Any color, any quantity. Grab-em Paint’s Superior Acrylic Latex Coatings are tough products for tough jobs at home on on the farm. Chemical Engineer, founder of Wienert Mfg. Co., Les Wienert, has formulated a number of superior Acrylic Latex Coatings to cover new, aged, or even rusty galvanized metal or steel panel construction. Call or come by to discuss you paint needs.
Get Properly Prepared: I think of it as get ready, get set, now go. Getting properly prepared will entail more than just surface preparation. Actually some would say surface prep will be the “get set” part just before you dip your brush (roller) in the paint.
Get ready by preparing a list of tools, equipment, supplies, and paints needed for the job you are about to tackle. Of course they may vary according to your job. Here is a list some might say has a slight overkill in it. Of course, if you are like me, you might have to “get
by” with what you have.
It would be nice to have on hand or quickly available the following: Sand blaster, air compressor with accessories, ladders & step ladders, hammer, screwdriver (both electric and manual – phillips & regular). Also scrapers, wire brush, sand paper, electric grinder, paint containers, rollers, roller handles, roller pans, brushes, fast mask, clean up pans or buckets, and water.
Get set by preparing surfaces to receive the paint. Removing any loose rust, blistering or loose paint with wire brush and scraping tool is a good “get set” start. I suggest doing any sand blasting after this, but ahead of removing dirt, mold and mildew, and other debris. The sand blasting will do some of removal for you. Sometimes I use air under pressure to remove dust and dirt. But there will be a clinging dust that will have to be brushed away with fine bristle brush or wiped away with rags. Any loose fasteners should be removed or secured. I usually replace loose nails with screws and where appropriate I use screws with neoprene washers. Neoprene washers exhibits good chemical stability and maintains flexibility over a wide temperature range helping to reduce leaking. Don’t forget your protective clothing, mask, and goggles.
Now I am ready to do my breakfast, when having my breakfast coming again to read additional news.
Fantastic beat ! I would like to apprentice at the same time
