Industrial floors are some of the most abused assets in every facility. They are exposed to caustic and acid cleaners, forklift traffic, pallets, equipment, hydraulic fluid,heavy inventory, corrosive ingredients and much more. These hazards may sound uncommon to a regular home owner, but for an industrial flooring contractor, these are common obstacles that every epoxy floor expert needs to consider.
Does the area get washed down?
Does the area get foot traffic, or fork lift traffic?
Is the area exposed to battery acid, caustic cleaners, or corrosive solvents?
Does the area require a cove base?
Does the industrial floor need to be pitched towards a drain?
Is the owner looking for aesthetics or functionality?
Does the area need a slip-resistant texture?
Is the customer looking for warehouse striping, logos, or floor markings?
These are questions that every epoxy floor expert will need to consider when surveying an industrial or commercial project.
No matter how skillfully it was constructed, every building’s roof will encounter problems throughout its life. This exterior feature constantly endures changing weather patterns and debris, which cause wear and tear. Additional factors like poor initial installation can make a roof deteriorate more quickly.
When you are considering a significant repair or even a full replacement, it can be difficult to know where to start. Getting a thorough understanding of the factors that influence repair or replacement is the first step, and evaluating the type of repair required is next. If you’re having trouble knowing where to start the process, you’ve come to the right place. We’ll go over what you need to consider when deciding on commercial roof repair.
We are entering uncertain times. And much of the population is being asked to remain home. But many of your facilities and properties are still operating for the good of the community. Some of you continue to manufacture our food and health products despite the viral outbreak. And others are continuing to manage these properties that we depend on.
Capital Coating wants to thank you for your continued service. And we want you to know that we’re here to help you. Our Facility Services Division is open, operating, and we can be contacted anytime for Emergency Services:

When a school in the Delaware Valley School District approached Capital Coating, Inc. about a major repair to a 120,000 sq. ft., ballasted EPDM roof, we were up to the challenge. In fact, Capital Coating was able to design a special roofing system that allowed us to effectively repair the roof within the client’s budget while minimizing the downtime incurred. Repairing the existing roof was 50% of the cost of a brand new roof while delivering on quality expectations backed by a 10-year, no-dollar limit warranty.
We made sure our roof repair offered the required integrity and durability by carefully inspecting and surveying the site, before proceeding with the design/build. We diligently prepared and high-pressure washed the surface, then moved on to the actual roof restoration using acrylic/elastomeric and urethane coatings with a reinforced fabric mat. The coatings were fluid-applied, fully reinforced, seamless, fully adhered, and waterproof.
It took us four weeks to complete the restoration and ensured that we met the Cool Roof Rating Council, Energy Star and Factory Mutual standards. To learn more about why this school district was satisfied with the results, please see below and contact us directly.

During – Prepping & Painting an Operating Dust Removal System
When a metal foundry discovered that the substrate on their dust-removal system and bag house were rusting, management recognized the need for immediate action. However, they also knew that in view of their production commitments, they would be unable to accommodate any downtime. The challenge was finding a firm that was able to make the repairs prepare the substrate and apply the coating while the foundry was up and running. To meet this challenge, Capital Coating, Inc. designed a unique paint system that allowed us to do all of the necessary work on the substrate – while that substrate was at a constant 400°F. We did the project surveying, design/build, media and crushed-glass blasting, pressure washing, paint removal and regular and high-reach painting while the metal foundry was operating at full capacity. We used our 60′ and 80′ lifts as well as our 200′ crane to reach the necessary heights, applying specialized heat-resistant, high-performance and epoxy paints.
Capital Coating completed this demanding and highly-specialized paint project for our York, Pennsylvania client in four weeks. The metal foundry client appreciated both the end results and final bill and as result, this project was the beginning of what has become an ongoing relationship.

Before – Repairing & Restoring a Feed Mill Fire Damaged Roof
During – Repairing & Restoring a Feed Mill Fire Damaged Roof
After – Repairing & Restoring a Feed Mill Fire Damaged Roof
Capital Coating, Inc. was contracted with the repair and restoration of a fire-damaged roof for a feed mill client in the agricultural industry. The project required that the roof be rebuilt, which included all of the prep work, such as the sand and media blasting, pressure-washing, paint removal and painting. To ensure the necessary durability, resilience and exterior finish, we used spray polyurethane foam, a silicone coat and a high-performance paint coat. To successfully complete the high-reach painting on the storage bins and grain elevators, we used our specialized swing stages and 110′ lift as required. We completed the project; start to finish, for our client in Lancaster, Pennsylvania in four weeks.
Additional details are included below. We look forward to providing the repair and restoration services that you require.
