While you might have an image of painters painting walls, floors, and other miscellaneous items, our iron painters are specialized in painting metal, which requires an additional skill set. Just like every other member of our team, the ironwork projects would not be possible without the extensive skills of our painters.

Why is Painting Iron Important?

Unlike other painted surfaces, iron is prone to rust and other kinds of discolorations. This can turn a unique iron creation into something you aren’t proud of anymore. However, when you paint the iron, you can delay the oxidation process a little while.

Iron rusts when it is exposed to moisture, and it can start as quickly as the first time it rains or is exposed to a sprinkler head. That’s why we make sure that all of our iron creations are painted before we install them at your home or business.

The Painting Process

To make sure that we give you a long-lasting, beautiful ironwork masterpiece, our painters are meticulous about how they do their work. First, they scrub the iron to make sure that there are no imperfections in the iron, that the mill oil is removed, that no rust has started to form, and that none of the previous paint is left (if repainting).

Next, they use a rust-inhibiting primer on the iron and allow that to dry before adding oil-based paint and a high-quality top coat. Without each step in this painting process, the ironwork at your home or business would be more vulnerable to rust and oxidized discoloration.

If you are interested in having your ornamental iron painted or in getting a new ironwork project started, call Innovative Iron today at (801)-931-6625!
