Kansas City, MO/ Commercial Epoxy Floor

State Line Chrysler Dodge Jeep needed a durable flooring system for their newly expanded service building.  We provided cleaning, preparation and installation for an epoxy system that truly holds up to the constant traffic and corrosive chemicals from a high-volume vehicle service facility. We also use this same system in our residential line for beautifying a garage or basement floor.  This system is a great way to freshen up an aging concrete floor.

Independence, MO Commercial/Interior Painting

This project was unique because originally I had written it off as lost business.  After submitting a very competitive bid, I later found out that I was significantly underbid by a contractor.  The contractor tried to stay on budget by sub-contracting out the work to painters.  This is a practice that Distinctive Quality Painting never employees.  Our work is done by our experienced crew so I can make sure that time frames are hit and the quality is up to my standards.  Our original proposal called for the work to be done in two months.  Six months after losing the bid, we received a call from the owners asking us to take over the project.  Even though we had to fix a lot of work that was not up to our standards and work around cabinetry that had already been installed, we were able to complete the project in just six...

Rock and Run Brewery in Liberty, MO took over two spaces that had previously been used for storage and an office.  One side featured untreated plaster over brick while the other side had been painted on top of the plaster.  While the owners loved the look of plaster over brick, they were less enthused about the plaster falling into their guests’ food and beer.  They had tried unsuccessfully to seal the walls before they called Distinctive Quality Painting.  I was able to use a commercial sealant to maintain the look they wanted and added a faux finish to the other side of the space to unify both sides of the room into a cohesive theme. Once finished with this project, they asked for his help on the brewery’s bar top and tables.  The wood used for this project was reclaimed from a bowling alley in Iowa.  While they had originally intended to use an epoxy to seal the wood, I noticed a potential problem.  Epoxy alone would not create the temperature and water vapor seal they needed to protect the wood for the life of the bar.  By using a conversion varnish I was able to provide them all of the benefits of varnish, but also give them the temperature resistance and vapor seal they needed.  The conversion varnish and labor ended up costing 1/3rd the price of the epoxy...

Big Rip Brewing Commercial Painting – North Kansas City, MO There are times that I take on projects that make my staff think I might be crazy.  This was the project that convinced them.  Big Rip Brewing is a micro-brewery in North Kansas City, MO.  I was contacted to submit a bid on this project and we agreed to look at it on a Sunday afternoon.  The project seemed pretty straightforward until the owner through a curve ball at me.  The entire project needed to be completed in just six days to be ready for the annual Snake Saturday parade in North Kansas City.  The owner knew that being on the parade route would provide a great deal of exposure and wanted his building to look great.  In just six days we prepared the building for painting and added two coats of red paint.  In addition, the flat black paint that was used to replicate cast iron is not generally recommended for exterior use.   In order to achieve the look the client wanted, the paint had to be applied rapidly and in very specific pattern.  On the day of the parade, the project was finished and the crew was able to show off their work to friends and family before enjoying the...

Edward Jones Investments Commercial Painting – Liberty, MO The Edward Jones Investments building on the Historic Square in Liberty, MO created a series of unique challenges.  The building was part of the original town square in Liberty and was well over 100 years old.  Maintaining the historic façade while extending its life required a very gentle stucco restoration effort.  This was made considerably more difficult by being located in a high-traffic commercial area which prevented the use of hydraulic lifts on the sidewalk or ladders that extended into the street.  The building had not seen a fresh coat of paint in over 30 years for this reason.  We were able to remove the awnings from the previous business and replace them with new hardware that should extend their life significantly.  Once the exterior was completed, we were asked to spruce up the interior as well.  As you can see from the pictures, we were able to complete this work while allowing the business to complete normal...
