Wings and Waves Water Park in McMinnville Oregon is one of the most popular water parks in America. It has four different waterslides, plus a kiddie pool with a small slide for the kids to enjoy. There is a giant wave pool that will keep kids and their families entertained all day long!
The owners retained Smith and Company Painting to prep, repaint, and recoat various metal surfaces including ductwork, stairs, and lockers. Smith and Company also performed extensive drywall repair and painted it. Additionally, the expert commercial painters completed concrete floor surface prep and applied new epoxy paint to approximately 5,000 SF of concrete floor.
Metal, Steel, Aluminum and Concrete Painting | Overall Scope Of The Project
- Rust Removal From Steel Stairs and Beams, Repaint
- Sandblasting Sheet Metal, Aluminum, and Recoat.
- Drywall Repair and Paint
- Concrete Floor Grinding and resurface with epoxy floor paint.
The Problem – the new owner of Wings and Waves Water Park wanted to upgrade the appearance with new paint and drywall. Metal stairs and aluminum ductwork also needed sandblasting rusted areas and recoating. The water park’s extensive foot traffic created large areas of wear on the concrete floors and required new epoxy floor paint. The painting crew experienced challenges because of height and ductwork access, which required sandblasting and repainting.
Solution – After the HVAC updates to eliminate the moisture and humidity, Smith and Company began the process of power washing the peeling paint (like the photo above) to remove and prep for new paint. Additionally, we sandblasted and repainted rusting metal on stairs, supports, and metal lockers in locker rooms. The concrete flooring prep started with grinding the old coating and applying a new, epoxy resurfacing coating.
Time of Completion – Approximately 3 Months
Interior Painting Inside Wings and Waves Water Park
- Ceiling – Remove peeling paint and repaint
- Walls – Repair damaged drywall, prime, and repaint
- Locker rooms – Metal Lockers – sandblasted rust on metal lockers and repainted.
- Stairs – Metal stairs were rusting, which required sandblasting and repaint.
- Concrete Floor Work – After the removal of the carpet, we ground and removed the adhesive from the concrete. Also, we ground a large logo off the floor and recoated it with Sherwin Williams Acryla Deck Water Based epoxy.
