Well, we are big on collaboration. So here is a little of what we do to ensure your project turns out exactly the way you expect.

  1. We listen. We start with carefully listening to or reading your request.
  2. We ask questions. 
    • What is your overall goal?

    DID YOU KNOW: Once you expose metal, all except for the highest quality stainless, oxidation begins. Getting metal in primer or some finish coating is critical, especially in the humid summer.

    • What material is your job made of?
    • What size is it? How heavy is it?
    • How will you get it to the shop?
    • What is your timeframe? There are times of the year when we are busier than others. We will let you know that and give you an honest estimate of how long it will take from drop-off to pick-up/delivery.
    • Do you want or need pickup/delivery service?
    • Where are you located?
    • After the product is blasted, would you like it ceramic or powder coated? We provide coating services onsite through our partner, Xtreme Temperature Coatings.

  1. I am also in the DC area — and, I have one, small radiator in need of stripping and powder coating.

    Any chance that you would consider sending a truck and crew, if there were enough folks interested in having radiators done to make the costs worth it? I can reach over 17,000 people here locally, and there must be even more — between DC and Baltimore — who would also like to have radiators done. What kind of quantity would make a large truck, a couple of guys, and multiple pick-ups in the same region, worth it?
