It’s back to school for the kiddos and the last thing they are thinking about is painting. Well maybe in art class — not on the walls, windows, doors, brick, equipment etc. But, you can be sure that students, teachers, parents and guests recognize a fresh, cheerful learning environment when they see one. Proper maintenance painting sends a message that you care. And protecting your investment is a smart business practice.

Connor Fine Painting works with a long list of schools and universities who get top marks for their foreword-thinking outlook on maintenance painting. Institutions like Butler University, Ivy Tech, Pike Township Schools, Brebeuf Jesuit, Indianapolis Public Schools and Hamilton Southeastern Schools to name a few.

Congratulations to Fall Creek Junior High in Fishers, IN, for the beautification and rededication of their school, which was formerly used as the freshman campus. Connor Fine Painting was happy to work on a variety of projects, which add to the school’s genuinely caring vibe.

One project of note with less visibility but of great utility was a weather worn loading dock plate the school uses for pick up and delivery in the rear of the building. Harsh weather quickly erodes exterior equipment like this and rust builds up fast. Connor professional painters Rodolfo Colmenares and Erick Guzman first removed the rust with a mechanical grinder, and then sanded all the surfaces smooth. Next, they applied a barrier coat of Sherwin Williams Macropoxy 646 followed by an intermediate coat of Sherwin Williams Duraplate 235 epoxy. A finish coat of Acrolon 218 urethane in safety yellow restored the dock plate to mint condition.

Taking care of physical assets and providing a beautiful, well maintained facility for students and all to enjoy can uplift the learning process. Best wishes to all from Connor Fine Painting for a great school year.
