Stop Graffiti With Protective Coatings!

Graffiti can be illegal “tagging” that gets the artist recognition, intricate commissioned murals, or gang symbols. Regardless of the type, if it is on your building or other structure without permission, it is vandalism. Graffiti can detract from your business’ professional appearance and property value. Getting rid of graffiti early is key to stopping more from happening, and anti-graffiti coatings are the best way to eliminate a graffiti problem.

Initial Preparation
If graffiti is showing up on your commercial or industrial structure, preparation is key to proper removal. When it is on painted surfaces, light surface preparation and new topcoat painting jobs are often satisfactory for a start. When graffiti is on surfaces like exposed brick or concrete, your painting contractor may need to use more extensive surface preparation such as sandblasting to completely remove it before applying anti-graffiti coatings.

Anti-Graffiti Coating Application
Once the graffiti is removed, the wall might be seen as an inviting blank canvas unless you apply anti-graffiti coatings. These are clear coatings that put an invisible defense by sealing the substrate against spray paint soaking in, and they allow for quick and easy washing off of future graffiti.
They come in two main types: sacrificial and permanent.

Sacrificial coatings are typically wax-based. If graffiti is painted on a wall protected with a sacrificial anti-graffiti coating, the coating can be quickly pressure-washed off, taking the graffiti with it. A new coating can then be applied.

Permanent or non-sacrificial coatings protect the substrate from spray paint with a film of tough polyurethane or another base. When graffiti is painted over this it can be removed with solvents that leave the anti-graffiti coating intact.

Anti-graffiti painting services are effective for nearly any surface, including brick, concrete, wood, metal, various paint finishes, etc. If you are interested in protecting your facility from graffiti or in dealing with an existing graffiti problem, give us a call!

Mary Jane B.

Very professional, I appreciate the time they took to make sure everything was taken care of for my house! I really liked that Jaime stepped up and told me not to paint my front door like the house and then chose a color that worked great. Thank you!

You are an excellent company and I couldn't be any happier with your work. This is your second job for me and both were excellent.

We are long time happy customers with many positive experiences with Brooks Painting. We have appreciated the assistance (and patience) with selecting paint colors, the professionalism of the staff and the high quality of workmanship. We recently had some interior painting done and the crew was on time, neat, careful inside the house and very easy to work with. They also cheerfully handled some unexpected drywall repair. I highly recommend Brooks Painting.

What a difference!! We hired Brooks Painting to do both an interior refresh painting and a completely new exterior color. Everything was handled professionally and as promised. The team, from estimator to office to painters on site, was responsive, friendly and skilled. Brooks Painting is the most reliable contractor we have ever hired. Thank you Jeremy, Dan, Israel, and Kristen.

Eric and his crew were on time every day and did a very thorough job. I was thrilled that they were willing to paint my outdoor light fixtures which were getting rusty. I was particularly impressed how much time they spent going over their work at the end to catch spots that were missed. I’ll be using them again for interior painting.

Brooks Painting painted our home in Sacramento in March of 2022. Tim did a great job power washing our home. Corey, Flint, and Kristen were very helpful in the bid and. planning. process. The painting crew was excellent. Arrived on time each day and the project was finished in 5 days as promised. All worked very hard.

Brooks did a fantastic job on our exterior and interior paint jobs. Quality was high, price was reasonable, and the team was extremely professional and detail-oriented. Mark was our crew lead and the team performed a number of exterior wood repairs, a door re-stain, interior and exterior painting. Mark clearly takes a lot of pride in his work and went above and beyond to ensure the work was high-quality, including finding exact matching siding to fix dry rot, and performing minor repairs that weren't even included in the quote. He and the team were all consistently positive and personable, joking with each other throughout the day, while also genuinely complimenting each other on the quality of their work. It was great to see, and that positivity definitely showed through the work they did. We couldn't be happier with the end result.

My experience with Brooks Painting has been outstanding, and, if it were an option on Google, I would assign 100 stars to their work. Mark and his crew were exceptional in painting both the inside and outside of my Central Davis home. They were considerate, careful, and respectful of my furnishings and yard. Kristen and her office staff were also responsive to my queries and were timely in scheduling the work. Thank you Brooks Painting for assisting in transforming my house into a beautiful home!
