Commercial property owners and commercial property managers need to conserve their working capital and face many difficult decisions weighing the cost of current maintenance and the downside of expensive maintenance if a situation is not addressed. This is just the situation that came up at Google headquarters located somewhere east of the Mississippi River in the United States. Google called on Buckeighty Painting Company to provide painting contracting services for a building located somewhere in Florida, Alabama, South Carolina, Kentucky, Virginia, West Virginia, North Carolina, North Carolina, Mississippi, South Carolina, Louisiana, Georgia, Tennessee or Ohio. That is, the Google facility for which Buckeighty Painting Company provided commercial painting contractor services is not a public walk-in facility of Google. It was one of many Google facilities where Google employees use the internet and their array of cleverly programmed computers to provide search results and cloud services for American’s in the southeastern United States.
But since we don’t have and don’t seek permission to tell everyone the locations of facilities that we think and would agree with our customer are vitally important to the functioning of our economy, we can only give you a sort of thumbnail sketch of the painting work we performed at a building where Google employees provided their great Google services. In this case a situation arose relating to metal surfaces on a roof exposed to the elements. Only about ten years old, nonetheless, these metal surfaces had their painted surfaces peeling and the corrosion of rust and such was starting to take place. We stripped the surfaces down to bare metal and applied a primer and a finish coating. One of the processes we used was a two part epoxy coating that provides a longer life in the sun, hail and hurricaines of the southeastern US, which could apply to buildings in Birmingham Alabama, Columbia South Carolina or even Wheeling West Virginia.
A two part epoxy coating for metal is a money saving process only in the long run. Up front the commercial property owner or commercial property manager will pay more for this process, but in the long run a commercial property manager saves money on commercial painting contractor services. Since a large part of a painting project is the labor involved, commercial property managers look for ways to save the number of times things need to be done over even a two or three decade span of time. The smart people at the big internet search company for which we provided commercial painting contractor services were willing to pay a little more in the short run to commit to their business in the long run.
