Paint and Wood Coatings for Equine Related Facilities and Structures

Wood elements on equine structures are exposed to a variety of harsh elements. Ultraviolet rays, rain, sleet, and snow all contribute to damaging exterior surfaces. Excessive moisture inside the barn can deteriorate wood finishes . Many choices will offer trade-offs with respect to durability, frequency of maintenance, ease or difficulty of application, preparation required, and initial cost. Each project will have specific coating requirements, especially when prior coatings choices are failing.

Barns and other building interiors are many times exposed to huge amounts of moisture that require specialized coatings for that environment. Good coatings choices must be made on new construction and maintenance projects for long term protection and enduring beauty.

We can provide a paint and coatings guide for any project, inside or out, giving you detailed solutions and procedures.  This guide can be used for bid proposals, or for contractors or your staff who execute work to protect and beautify your farm's structures.
