Paint and Wood Coatings for Equine Related Facilities and Structures
Wood elements on equine structures are exposed to a variety of harsh elements. Ultraviolet rays, rain, sleet, and snow all contribute to damaging exterior surfaces. Excessive moisture inside the barn can deteriorate wood finishes . Many choices will offer trade-offs with respect to durability, frequency of maintenance, ease or difficulty of application, preparation required, and initial cost. Each projec will have specific coating requirements, especially when prior coatings choices are failing.

Many farms continue to use solvent based products, yet in many cases, superior-performing water-based alternatives exist. Solvent coatings represent a hazard to horses, clients, employees, and the environment. We can help you evaluate safer alternatives for painting and protecting equine fencing and structures.
We can provide a paint and coatings guide for any project, inside or out, giving you detailed solutions and procedures. This guide can be used for bid proposals, or for contractors or your staff who execute work to protect and beautify your farm's structures.
