Refinishing Steam Radiators in NJ
Nick_37 Member Posts: 38
I am looking to get my steam radiators refinished and restore them to their former prime. They have accumulated many layers of paint over the years from previous owners that is now flaking off. Does any one know of any contractors that specialize in sandblasting and refinishing radiators in the New Jersey area?
I did mine last year. I had them sand blasted then spray painted -not powder coated. They looked great when they were delivered. But they stunk up the house for several weeks into the heating season and now most every radiators has cracks somewhere on the paint coating (after the first heating season!).
I live near NYC, but there is no need for me to share w u who I used.0
is the way to go although more expensive. paint wont crack and has a cleaner look. i live in jersey but have never had to get rads blasted and painted. most people wouldnt dare to spend the money.0
Quick Strip, www.quickstripnj.com, they do media and sand blasting. Had a few steam radiators stripped there and I used high temp. engine enamel and yes, it did stink for a few days. Powder coating is interesting, but difficult to remove when "I'm tired of these colors, it's time to re-decorate".0
