Commercial Painting Merriam- Baron BMW

We had a great opportunity to be able to paint Baron BMW in Merriam, KS. We painted inside and out while the business was open and running. The aluminum panels on the outside were highly technical because paint would not stick. We had to experiment with 8 different products before finding one that would adhere to the aluminum. Everything was masked off in sections while they serviced an repaired vehicles, while we painted the building at the same... read more

New ideas are what makes new movements.  Level Office is not short of making new waves in the entrepreneur industry in providing low cost offices for small businesses, and large alike. This 8 story building is a modern design that wasn’t lacking challenges in that the ceilings were all Sherwin Williams Black Fox SW 7020 and the walls a Pure White SW 7005.   The burnt orange doors were also a project in itself.   Orange and pastels are one our specialties in painting.

Primrose School of Blue Valley – Commercial Painting Overland Park, Kansas

  We had the great opportunity in painting the Primrose School in Blue Valley.  The finishes are a very particular design that matches one of the most premier early education private schools in the area. The trim package included oil-based paint that yields a much more elegant detail and smoother finish than many of the acrylic/latex finishes.    The oil-based finish can also cure to a harder finish, making it more durable but also is maintenance friendly because touch-ups and damage repair can be simple and non-technical. The design included a wallpaper border to make the distinguished paint finishes more child friendly and... read more

Steeplechase Multi-Family Luxury Apartments, Kansas City, Missouri

  We were lucky enough to work with Bach homes, LLC to prepare and paint the luxurious Steeplechase Apartments located in northern Kansas City. It was a pleasure to work with several project managers and superintendents that had the same mind-set at hand – high production.  We started on the first of ten four-story apartment buildings in April 2015 and finished in May of 2016.  This record-breaking production team stayed on point and had a solution for every delay that stood in our way. The project consists of 365 units in total not including two amenity laden clubhouses with pools and meeting areas that were finished with a level of detail that is usually reserved for a custom home.

Interior Commercial Painting, Kansas City, Kansas

The renovations of 17 year-old design has started in a dentist office in Kansas City, Kansas.   Smiles by design’s new owner decided his practice needed a new look. The first phase of this project was to seal the original wallpaper and then apply joint compound over the seams…then onto painting.   This is an industry specific process that eliminates the need for the laborious task of trying to strip the wallpaper off the wall and our typical process when homeowners hire us to remove wallpaper.  It saves a very messy and classically expensive step in the process of finishing wallpapered walls. Second and third phases will include but most likely not limited to, replacing and painting the doors and removing and re-finishing the floors. Before and after photos are shown below, please give us a call if you have wall paper that is no longer in style or design. (816) 935-3000.   BEFORE BEFORE AFTER AFTER... read more

Commercial Painting, Parkville, MO

We are very excited to have the opportunity to paint such a community staple: Eagle Animal Hospital in Riverside, Missouri. This large-scale renovation was very demanding.  The hospital remained open while all renovations were underway and the project was completed in three different phases.   Many Saturdays and Sundays were spent making sure the demanding deadlines were met. The finishes within the building were also technical and slightly complicated.  Various epoxies finishes were used in wet areas like kennels and operating rooms providing the areas with maintenance free coatings.  Scaffolding was required to finish the 26 foot dual-color cedar lobby.  The exterior was a mixture of cementious siding and wood-based trim boards, requiring special primers prior to paint.  In addition, the exterior stain had to match the interior cedar all the while trying to compete with one of the wettest spring and summers on record. We definitely aim to please when we plan a project of this size.  Using the best product and making sure the beauty lasts as long as possible but most importantly to make sure our customers are DISTINCTIVE.      ... read more
