Iron Fences / Metal Doors
Common Painting Problems
Metal surfaces can peel, just as any wood surface can, but metal does not rot, it rusts. Apart from being unsightly, it can also leave permanent stains on nearby surfaces. Peeling may be the result of no previous use of primer, use of the wrong primer, or the application of paint directly over rust.
At Student Works Painting, we are unable to guarantee these metal surfaces, but we will do our utmost to ensure rust does not reappear for quite some time.
All peeling or rusting areas will be scraped and wire brushed, and any rough edges will be sanded. All bare surfaces will be primed with a primer formulated specifically to inhibit rust. The finish coat will be a top line paint.
Special Note – When painting factory coated metal doors, be aware that in the factory they are coated using a process that shoots electro-magnetic current through the paint that causes the paint to dry perfectly smooth. It is impossible to replicate this finish with brushes and rollers.
