Why don’t you paint wood?

designshopp January 07,2019

Wood is an organic, living material. Like all living things, organic surfaces must breathe, and this just isn’t possible if we apply a coating to it. The natural tendency for the wood to breathe would eventually cause the paint to chip and peel. Not to mention, there’s actually no added benefit of spraying wood, since its porous nature doesn’t allow for a smooth, factory finish.

Finally, when we give you a quote for your project during your consultation, we give you an exact, fixed cost that won’t change so you can determine whether a Spray-Net revamp makes sense in terms of your budget. You never know how long it will take to strip wood, so we wouldn’t be able to give you a fixed and exact quote ahead of time.
