Winter Work
« on: December 11, 2007, 10:09:48 PM »
We've been blessed with project after project of window prefinishing. This happens to be a historical restoration. All wood windows, true divided lites, stained interiors and painted exteriors. The trim is already done and standing tall,  awaiting delivery mid December. I'm thankful for all our hardworking painters and helpers who never complain about too much work.  :)

Most of the windows are 80 inches tall by 38 inches wide. A handfull to disassemble and reassemble but my people have it under control. Our deadline for shipment of 44 units is 12/19. Diana, our lead painter assured me...No Problem!

Laying them out.



Emil testing stain penetration



Stained interior frame



Painted exterior frame and sill



Half of the redwood trim. Painted and keeping it warm and dry. Fir door leaning against truck hood. I wonder who stood that there? ;D
That Bay Window sitting there worries me.




Trim drying on the rack



Three residential units finished in Pro Classic with Brass hardware. Getting a ride to
their home tomorrow.



Fresh delivery!

Fun to see production pix like that!

Hmmmm, people spend $$$$$ on furnishings...
BUT, Oh my God, that paint is $40/gaL!!
It's the most noticeable part of an interior!!

Very Nice....Did you start off with this as a goal or did it evolve from something else you did?

apologies in advance if you had already answered this question before. :)

Blackwolf,

I am a painter who formed a partnership distribution center of windows, doors, kitchen cabinets, etc. My job is sales and contractor coordinator. I naturally fall into the prefinish shop everyday to spend time with the folks I have in there. They are great people and we wouldn't be where we are without them.

The prefinish concept comes natural to me, of course. We sell more windows than our competitors because when the contractor (our customer) delivers and installs them, the job is complete (except for a few nail holes in the trim to be filled).

I'll show more pics of how things are progressing.

Faron,

We used SW BAC Wiping Stain and Duration on the window sashes and frames.

On the redwood trim, we primed and back primed with CoverStain and then two coats of Duration on face and edges.

Absolutely beautiful work, and what a shop!

I only wish you were in my area so I could send some referrals your way.

Hey Michael, I'd cut off PWG's right arm to have your shop too! Heck, maybe both of 'em! ;D

You guys are being so cruel to PWG.  Cut off his arms & he will now be able to type his good advice.  ;D
