Professional painting services for silos and tanks

Industrial exterior painting for silos and tanks is a common need for a variety of different types of companies, including those involved in refining, chemical and pharmaceutical, agricultural and food processing, construction and cement, manufacturing, energy and water treatment. At Painters Inc., we’ve developed expertise in silo painting, as well as industrial tank painting, and we’ve brought that talent to companies throughout the Chicago area.

Part of the challenge of painting these structures is knowing which coatings will work best, and that always depends on the kind of use the structures receive. This is why partnering with a trusted painting contractor is so important, as they will take the time to be fully informed before taking action.

When tanks and silos begin to show signs of damage, it’s highly likely that they will require some prep work before coatings are applied. Making repairs and cleaning up surfaces prior to painting ensures proper adhesion, longer life of the paint and prolonged protection of the silo and tank. Painters Inc. understands how important protecting against corrosion is and we have amassed knowledge about the specialty coatings used for this type of work.

Providing expert industrial silo and tank painting services:

  • Thorough inspection and expert assessment

    Making an informed decision about the steps to take moving forward with your painting project is only possible via a thorough inspection by an expert on silos and tanks. At Painters Inc., we look for all the warning signs that paint could be failing, including bubbles and cracks in the paint, and we also look for structural issues, such as corrosion and/or rust, which will require mediation before the painting can begin.
  • Effective industrial cleaning

    A crucial step in any industrial painting process is the initial phase, which is cleaning surfaces so they are prepared for paint. At Painters Inc., we use industrial-grade cleaning applications, including power washing, to relieve surfaces of any substance that will have an impact on the quality of the overall project. Failing to take this step can result in a shorter paint lifespan, corrosion, rust and other issues that will potentially weaken the structure.
  • Comprehensive rust and corrosion control and repair

    When damage to the surface of the tanks and silos has been going on, unknowingly, for quite some time, more drastic measures must be taken, as paint cannot be applied to damaged surfaces. Fortunately, the team at Painters Inc. has the knowledge required to remedy rust and corrosion and get the structure ready for primer and paint. We ensure that all surfaces are in prime condition, ready for a coat of paint that will last for years and years.
  • Premium exterior silo and tank painting

    There is the obvious aesthetic enhancement involved with premium exterior silo and tank painting, but more critical are the protections added when they are newly painted. At Painters Inc., we use specialized coatings that offer exterior protection from corrosion and rust, most often caused by exposure to the elements. We only use high quality paint and apply it with techniques unique to professionals with years of experience painting silos and tanks. Our goal is for the exterior of your structures to look great and last a long time.
  • Comprehensive adjacent structures painting

    While it takes special skills to properly paint tanks and silos, there are many structures attached to and around silos and tanks that also require protective coatings. This includes hoppers, ladders, fencing, doors, walls and many other surface types that deserve just as much attention from our professional team of painters as your tanks and silos.

When you partner with Painters Inc., you get an industrial silo and tank painting contractor devoted to the longevity of your structures. We’re educated in all the safety regulations regarding these projects and we are committed to protect against all the usual suspects that can harm your tanks and silos.

Storage silo coating and painting

Companies that rely on storage silos need them to last a long time, but they also need silos to protect what is stored inside of them. This is why, across so many industries, silo painting is a critical process. With the right storage silo coating and paints applied correctly by a team of professionals, harsh environments become less of a threat.

Chemicals, moisture and ultraviolet light are probably the three biggest threats to the silos, and with the protective barrier between the silo and these threats, there is much less worry about potential corrosion that shortens the life of a structure. Furthermore, with silos that hold food, keeping moisture out is vital, as mold growth can create huge losses.

A silo painting contractor will also carefully inspect surfaces prior to painting, seeking out areas where abrasions are present, as this is a sign that corrosion is imminent. Furthermore, it’s well known in industrial circles that dry bulk chemicals can take a toll on the surfaces of silos, creating abrasions over time that will eventually lead to corrosion. Painters Inc. can help remedy this situation.

One of the biggest assets a silo and tank painting contractor brings to the job is knowledge about the types of coatings and paints for these types of projects. They include zinc-rich primers, ceramic, acrylic, polyurethane and epoxy coatings, among others. Knowing which will work best in specific situations is the specialty of silo painting contractors.

Count on Painters Inc. to properly protect your silos. We will assess the condition of your silos and take appropriate measures to prevent and/or stop damage.
