Marine Painting

Marine Painting

Marine painting is an often overlooked, but very important, procedure. If done right, marine painting will enhance your boat. A good paint job will improve the look of your boat and make it easier to clean. Marine painting is a very complex operation. You need to be able to choose the right paint to cover your boat's topsides, bottom and deck. In most cases, it is beneficial to seek a professional when you make the decision to paint your boat. Marine painting is a common task performed by marine painting companies. Marine painting companies are trained to know exactly what paint to use and how to apply the paint to give your boat maximum protection.

Types of Marine Painting

The most important consideration in marine painting is choosing the right type of paint. There are many choices when it comes to painting a barrier coat, coloring your hull, applying bottom paint or applying a non-skid coat to your deck. The most common task when it comes to marine painting is applying antifouling paint to the bottom of marine vehicles. Antifouling paint will help protect against the growth of barnacles and algae. Paint applied to the bottom of a boat has a short lifespan. A new coat of bottom paint has to be applied every few years. Boats that are stored in water will require more frequent bottom painting.

The type of paint you choose for marine painting depends on many factors. You will have to consider the water conditions your boat is used in and the paint that has already been applied to the boat. For example, a speedboat used in cold, fresh water requires a different type of paint than a fishing boat used in warm, salt water. Professional marine painting companies will know exactly what type of paint each boat requires. They will know whether a new coat of paint can be applied over any existing paint or if the old paint has to be stripped off.

Preparing Your Boat for Marine Painting

Painting Contractor

Actually painting your boat is one of the easiest tasks to complete when you decide you need to do marine painting. There is a long list of things you must do to your boat before you even begin to paint. Thankfully, a marine painting company will perform all of these preparations for you if you choose to hire one. Depending on the condition of your existing paint, you may only have to sand off the paint. If the current paint is in poor condition, you will have to completely strip off all of the paint. You will then have to repair any damage to your boat. An antifouling coat must be applied before painting can begin.

Painting the sides of your boat requires less preparation. This type of painting is mainly for looks only. However, painting the sides of your boat is just as important as painting the bottom. It is the part of your boat that is always visible so you will want it looking its best. Marine painting companies know exactly how to apply marine paint to give you an attractive design that will last for years to come.

Marine painting is very important to improve the durability of your boat. If done right, marine painting will add years to your boat's life. In addition, marine painting is crucial so your boat can look its best.
