With summer right around the corner, we would hate to see potential customers run into many of these issues that we work so hard to evade.
Our Commercial Estimator, Dave Scaturro, was recently featured on Sherwin Williams's Segment "Pro On The Go".
Alpine Painting was recently featured in a great article in PPC (Professional Painting Contractor) Magazine's Fall 2015 Issue. Watch our video to see how Alpine Painting incorporates technology in our business practices. Alpine Painting was recently featured on the cover of Utility and Transportation Contractor (UTCA) Magazine for the Month of June. The key to properly painting a historic structure is capturing the essence and ambiance of when it was first built.
We were honored to be awarded the job and we hope the Historic Preservation Commission is as pleased as we are with how it turned out!
Thank you to all that made this project possible, including the Paterson Historic Preservation Commission (Kelly Ruffel & Gianfranco Archimede) Ken Simpson (Chariman of the Historic Preservation Commission and Supervisor of Passiac County) and Mohammed Ahmed for helping spearhead this project. With much more elasticity and elongation compared to typical paint, elastomeric coatings is the answer to your waterproofing inquiries. When the surface of your warehouse fluctuates in temperature, elastomeric coatings are flexible enough to expand and contract without cracking their surface. Re-caulking expansion joints is another way stop water from penetrating into your building. Although, we just offered a few procedures for waterproofing your building, this type of job is best left to an experienced professional who will assure full potential of your product. We are privileged and honored to have Anthony as a valued member of our team, and admire his creativity and drive to constantly improve our technology systems. It is with great honor and pride to announce that two of Alpine’s field workers, Demetri Moraitakis and Swaveck Plokarz, have successfully passed their NACE CIP Level 1 course and exam.
At Alpine, we are constantly obtaining and renewing quality and safety certifications to not only stay compliant with legal standards, but to go above and beyond them.
Manufacturers selling in the state will now be responsible for providing paint collection spots around the state for paint disposal. In addition, safer workplaces lead to fewer accidents as well as uninterrupted work with superior performance from our journeymen. Last night at The Bethwood in Totowa, NJ, Alpine Painting received the State of New Jersey Governor’s Safety Award.
When painting a manufacturing facility, Alpine, first, has the facility manager remove all portable materials, supplies and equipment from the work area before the job is performed.
Painting and specialty coating applications in manufacturing and processing plants goes way beyond walls and ceilings.
Epoxy floor painting and dryfall paint for ceilings are very useful applications that provide more than a welcoming atmosphere for your manufacturing facility. Alpine Painting proudly accepted the NJ Governor's Occupational Safety and Health Award this March for the 5th year in a row.
This year marks Alpine Painting's 40th year in business and there is no better way to celebrate it than to be featured in our hometown's newsletter, Chamber Happenings! With over 40 years of exterior painting experience, Alpine Painting knows the proper temperature that the air, paint and substrate must be as well as the suitable dew point and relative humidity. Instead of completely replacing your masonry system, Alpine Painting can perform both repair and painting services to make your masonry look like new at a fraction of the price.
Give Alpine Painting a call today at (973) 279-3200 and get a free estimate for the exterior of your building! Sam and Ben Scaturro, natives in the field and Alpine’s second-generation owners, were the facilitators and teachers behind the operation.
This past weekend, March 4-7, 2015, Steve and Dave Scaturro had the pleasure of representing Alpine at the 2015 PDCA (Painting & Decorating Contractors of America) Expo in Charleston, SC. At Alpine, we strive every day to be one of the front-runners in the commercial and industrial painting industry and we are beyond thrilled to be recognized for our efforts by such an honorable and renowned committee.
With a wide range of colors, textures and finishes, epoxy paints loos as good as they protect. Did you realize epoxy floor coatings can be considered environmentally and physically safer than the average floor? Proper application of epoxy floor finishes is critical to final appearance and long-term durability. Alpine Painting and Sandblasting Contractors has years of surface preparation and coating application experience in a wide variety of facilities. Alpine Painting is proud to announce that the Greater Paterson Chamber of Commerce featured us in their newsletter "Chamber Happenings" in September of last year.
Sure the layers of paint on your vehicles and equipment serve to make them look nice; however, did you know that these coatings serve to protect them as well? Before reapplying a new layer of paint, all existing coatings, including paint, rust, grease, oil and dirt, should be sandblasted from the surface. Alpine Painting was hired by FirstService Residential to paint Wanaque Community Mid Rise, an active adult lifestyle community, located in Wanaque, NJ. With each project Alpine completes we have full-time project managers along with English-speaking crew leaders who make sure the job gets done properly and efficiently. Office buildings, Retail Stores, Hotels, Warehouses are just a few examples of interior projects Alpine paints throughout the winter.
Alpine Painting is excited to announce that from February 3-6, we will be attending the 2015 SSPC (The Society for Protective Coatings) Expo featuring GreenCOAT in Las Vegas, NV!
If you are investing your own time and money into a project, wouldn't you rather do it right the first time? Interior: For interior projects, the first thing you want to do is either remove all of the furniture from the area or place it in the center of the room and cover it with drop cloths. Interior: Since paint does not adhere to dirt or damaged areas, surface repair is a vital step in the painting process. When preparing interior walls, wipe down any dirt that is present by using a sponge or a cloth with water and a mild detergent; the surface must be dry before moving on to the next step. Exterior: When preparing exterior walls all peeling and flaking paint should be removed with sandpaper and scrapers.
To clean the surface, use a mixture of water, trisodium phosphate, and bleach and scrub down the surface with a long-handled brush. When the surface is dry, start preparing it by using an exterior spackle to repair any damaged areas.
Interior: Priming your interior surface is not necessary, but doing so will allow the paint to adhere and wear better. Exterior: Priming your exterior paint job is important for staining and weathering purposes. When priming or painting the exterior of your building, it is advised to avoid doing it with direct sun. Interior: When painting the interior of your building, the main concern you should have is ventilation.
Lead is considered a toxin that can hinder the development and functions of every organ in the body. Although home testing kits do exist, the EPA strongly suggests that a certified lead inspector or a certified lead risk assessor performs the lead test.
The risk assessment method locates failing paint in your building and evaluates the degree and cause of the deterioration. Here at Alpine, all of our rigid scaffolding and containment is stamped and approved by a Professional Engineer. By following the correct safety standards in containment rigging, we are able to work in high winds with the guarantee the integrity of the structure will not be compromised.
When sandblasting a tank, the used abrasive, many times including lead paint dust, is suctioned out of the containment with a dust collector.
In conjunction with our containment systems we also utilize heat or dehumidification equipment as well as other engineering controls to finish large projects within very tight time frames. Whether working on small private projects or high-profile, public bid projects, as a contractor, you should never ever take shortcuts.
By teaming up with Community Outreach Services Inc., Alpine has raised money for turkeys and boxed and canned goods to feed over 150 families this year and over 100 families each year in the past. On Wednesday night of last week, Alpine Painting was presented the Good Graces Award at the Hamilton & Ward Steakhouse in Paterson, NJ. Alpine received the Eagle Award in Specialty Painting for our work with the Morris County MUA.
We are so grateful to be a part of ABC and even more grateful to be recognized by their committee for our hard work.

To Alpine this means bringing the figure or building back to life, but with its original sparkle. With the ability to stretch and retain its shape under extreme temperatures, an elastomeric coating will not fail under pressure.
They have the ability to endure wind driven rain up to 100 mph; wind and rain that would normally crack the surfaces of your building.
This type of coating is a clear thin film coating system that is useful for repelling water, oil, ice, and a number of other liquid materials from a surface.
CIP Level 1 is a six-day course that includes a full 60 hours of training on the technical and practical fundamentals of coating inspection work for structural steel projects. We want to keep our promise to our customers and deliver top quality performance day-in and day-out on the job.
Because they are accountable for the funding, Manufacturers will be obligated to increase the cost of paint for retailers and ultimately consumers.


This award was in recognition of a performance of excellence in workplace safety during which 739,831 hours were accumulated without lost-time injury from January 1, 2002, to December 21, 2014. His goal is to bring awareness to the SSPC and to give back to the SSPC what the association has given to Alpine.
It is a day to recognize workers who have died or are exposed to hazards on the job and to honor the families who have suffered consequentially. This is why we do everything in our power to minimize this risk with state-of-the-art safety equipment, daily safety meetings, annual in-house safety training, and constant renewal of safety certifications for all of our employees.
As a commercial and industrial painting contractor, Alpine works with old tanks and buildings that frequently contain lead-based coatings. Then our crews use plastic and tarps to drape and cover the existing equipment, interior lighting, HVAC equipment, contuit and floor surfaces assuring that everything is protected. Durable epoxy floor coatings provide protection against the continuous movement of people and resists harmful chemicals which would normally crack or change the color of your floor.
We earned the award for our achievement in the prevention of occupational injuries during the 2014 calendar year. Both the surface and air temperature must be above 40 degrees for at least 2-3 hours for most paints to dry properly and 50 degrees for most primers.
We use moisture meters to measure the amount of moisture in your building and will paint accordingly to avoid blistering and surface leaching. Common exterior surfaces such as concrete walls, floors, balconies and structural steel require different waterproofing materials that stand up to the elements and are flexible enough to contract and expand with varying temperatures.
We will not only improve your building’s aesthetics, but we will apply specialty coatings to increase its structural integrity for years to come. In fact, we recently had an in-house training day for two of Alpine’s shop employees, Mike Robertson and Bernard Santiago. With hands-on lessons, Alpine’s two shop employees, Mike and Bernard, were able to watch Sam and Ben operate the spray and spot reading equipment, then get in the booth and operate it themselves. That resists harmful chemicals which would normally crack or change the color of your floor? They will give your facility an attractive professional finish and can even create more light for your interior. Although they do have a self-leveling effect, epoxy coatings should not be applied until the surface is prepared properly.
Factory trained crews handle every step in the process from preparing the substrate to application of a wide variety of epoxy, urethane, or quartz flooring systems, non-skids, line striping and even clear sealers and floor polishing.
We were featured for volunteering to paint Hinchcliffe Stadium, a historic stadium built in 1930, in the spring of last year. Primer is used to seal, bond, and create a stable surface for your topcoat to be applied to. Call your local paint contractor today and talk to them about bringing life to your office. Networking with peers as well as continuously furthering our education in the industry is what helps us stay among the top painting contractors in the nation.
Good preparation is proven to help paint last longer, look better and prevent problems such as chipping, peeling, and mold growth. With that being said, at least a day should be dedicated to this step in your project schedule, especially if you have repairs to make. Initially, scrape with a large scraper, then use a disc sander to smooth out any imperfections; begin sanding with coarse paper then finish with a fine one.
With wood surfaces, joints and cracks in the trim and window frames should be filled with paintable caulk. Primer is necessary, however, if your painting surface is stained or you plan on using light-colored paint.
Make sure to use a special stain-blocking primer when priming nail heads and knots in the wood to inhibit rust bleeding and wood resin. The heat can dry the primer and paint before proper penetration and can cause oil-based paints to develop blisters.
Make sure to open windows while priming and painting so that any pollutants are circulating out of the room. If the surface or weather is under 50ºF, effects such as cracking and improper film formation can occur. Not only does it become ingested into the bloodstream, but some is deposited into the kidneys and brain and stored in the bones as well. The downfall of this method is that painted surfaces in good condition are not tested; therefore a negative report does not always mean lead-based paint does not exist. Contractors that are working on these projects must provide the building owners with a new hazard pamphlet and place lead hazard signs around the property.
In many cases, accessing areas of the job and keeping the job from exposing to the surrounding environment is harder than the work itself! One main reason we take caution is because of OSHA scaffolding safety requirements that must be met to insure worker and public safety.
A dust collector is essentially a giant vacuum cleaner; but instead of picking up dust off a floor, it uses a large hose to suction dust out of the containment.
This equipment is used to keep the coating system at the right curing temperature, even in very cold or humid climates. The lives of your workers as well as the people and the environment surrounding your project depend on it.
With that being said, we understand the importance of sharing and giving to the ones we love.
With a beautiful ceremony and delicious dinner, the event turned out to be a remarkable night that Alpine was honored to be a part of. Their water tank needed major restoration that required Alpine to abrasively blast the interior to be a white metal blast and for the exterior to be commercial-blast clean. Initially, one of our estimators will evaluate the site in order to understand the surroundings and environment.
Because we want to satisfy our customers and allow for a mutually rewarding relationship in the future, our painters and project managers refuse to let any condition stop us from working.
With over 40 years of experience in Historic Restoration, Alpine understands just what kind of research and communication it takes tackling such a project. This coating prevents water from lingering on surfaces which restricts mold and mildew accretion as well as a rotting foundation. It is a super hydrophobic coating that works by creating an air barrier on the surface that it is applied to.
The best way for new sealant to adhere to your substrate is to make sure that all existing sealant and backer rod is removed from the surface. The affordable system uses iPads, a software application and a cloud-based storage system to store data files, allowing instantaneous collaboration between offices and field crews. Students learn about coating materials and techniques for surface preparation to perform basic coating inspections using non-destructive techniques and inspection instrumentation. We are so proud of our team and are excited to add two more NACE Level 1 Coating Inspectors to our job sites! This program is used to promote recycling and environmentally-friendly disposal practices of post-consumer paint.
We have won this award each year for the past 5 years and we plan on winning it for the next 5.
With his knowledge and drive, he will be an excellent leader and bring great changes to the entire industry.
Alpine and our project managers just became recertified EPA Renovation, Repair and Painting (RRP) Contractors. We have the right knowledge, skills and equipment to keep all of our jobs contained and to keep the public as well as our workers protected from potential lead poisoning. We cover all sprinkler heads with tin foil to protect from paint, still giving them the ability to work in case of an emergency.
When using dryfall paint on your ceiling you can be ensured that no paint will drip down and hit the equipment or product stored in the warehouse. With average spring temperatures of 50-55 degrees Fahrenheit and relatively low humidity in New Jersey, spring is a great time to start painting. Mold and mildew from moisture buildup can create an unhealthy indoor environment for your customers and staff.
Some of our specialties include: concrete spalling, brick or tuck pointing, and reinforcement steel (rebar). In this training, Mike and Bernard learned all about spray equipment and how to operate it.
At Alpine, we feel that hands-on, one-on-one learning is the best way to achieve the best results from our employees.
Epoxy floor coatings are the preferred finish for commercial and industrial applications in warehouses, healthcare facilities, pharmaceutical plants, manufacturing facilities and more because they perform as such.
You can chose one solid color for your floor or create a decorative pattern using several colors.
The correct preparation techniques require special equipment such as, shot blasting, scarifying and diamond grinding. Our on time reputation as a professional coatings resource makes Alpine Painting the best choice for epoxy floor surface preparation and coating applications.
March 7th than meet up with Steve & Dave Scaturro to network and learn the latest and greatest in our industry at the 2015 PDCA Expo.
Our head salesmen and project managers lead over 800 volunteers in the repainting of the graffitied stadium.
Protective layers should be reapplied in the off season so there is no downtime when the winter comes around. The Alpine Family took the opportunity this week to celebrate the birthday of Steve Scaturro, the Vice President and one of the Founders of Alpine Painting, and we plan on celebrating each and every one of our employees’ birthdays for years to come.
Yes, these colors stand out in a directory ad, but safety-red walls may be just a bit intimidating for people around them.


The way you look at your marketing material is the same way you should look at your office. Don't be afraid to use a colorful piece of art or an accent wall to dapper up your space. Whether making homemade dry-erase boards with special dry-erase paint, turning a wall into a mural of one of your jobs or hanging paint cans from the ceiling, find ideas that will spark creativity in your workplace. Whether you need your walls painted, your building waterproofed, or your space completely renovated, Alpine is here to service you. The event will be featuring exhibits with exciting new products and specialized SSPC training with more classes at one time, in one place, than any other time of year! Make sure to remove all window and door screens, light fixtures, electrical covers, and plumbing outlets. Different levels in the surface will appear when painted so make sure that all surfaces are smooth and even. If the weather is too hot, the humidity can highly affect oil-based paints by turning the paint blotchy or showing color-variations in the film. If you plan on selling or renting out your space, you have a legal obligation to inform the potential buyer or renter of any information you have about the lead-based paint or lead-based paint hazards in your building. The samples will then be tested by either portable x-ray fluorescence (XRF) or will be sent to laboratory recognized by the EPA’s National Lead Laboratory Accreditation Program. This is why some building owners decide to have both a paint inspection and risk assessment performed to their property. There are some precautions you can take to make sure that the lead does not affect you or people in the surrounding area. This is why every year, for the past 3 years, Alpine has dedicated our time and efforts to feeding the less-fortunate families of Paterson, NJ for Thanksgiving.
The Historic Preservation Commission did a fine job at recognizing local businesses, government boards and churches for their dedication to the preservation of historic landmarks in the city of Paterson.
Because we pride ourselves on safety, this is a huge honor and privilege to be recognized for such a highly respected award among our peers. The job entailed concrete repairs, installation of a mixing system, the use of a catholic protection system, and the application of a 3-coat protective coating system.
With thunderstorms, heavy winds, to even morning dew, the forecast is certainly unpredictable, so how does Alpine Painting provide such durable and reliable services when it comes to summer  commercial and industrial projects? As we create the proposal, we will specify the correct coating system based on the   substrates and conditions. Though we may not be physically painting, we are constantly analyzing weather radars and receiving weather updates. This means that your HVAC system is being assisted in preventing moisture buildup and temperature changes due to dampness will decrease. We have experience in waterproofing warehouses in towns all over New Jersey including South Plainfield, Piscataway, Clifton, South Brunswick, and Paterson. The STEP program evaluates a safe working culture and pushes us to exceed our current safety standards and performance. To Alpine, there is nothing more important than the safety of our workers and we would like to applaud them for taking safety seriously on each and every job. It is evaluated each day, on every job, to prevent injuries or death to our valued workforce. This means that all of our certified project managers must provide lead-safe work practices training to all non-certified renovation workers on each job site. Proper surface preparation is essential to ensure your new coating adheres properly to the surface.
Dryfall paint will actually dry to a dust before it hits the ground, allowing it to be cleaned up easily by sweeping, rather than having to meticulously wipe it off items. Give Alpine a call and we will show you what an experienced contractor can do to make your manufacturing facility look and feel better for your employees and customers. We have multiple safety training classes for our field workers throughout the year and take systematic approaches to the safety of our jobs day-in and day-out. Whether you manage a retail store, hospital, restaurant, hotel, office or apartment building; the exterior of your structure makes a difference between people walking in and walking on by. Alpine knows the proper waterproofing sealant application procedures as well as the right elastomeric coatings to use to prevent moisture buildup. They learned what a product data sheet is and the information it supplies, how to achieve a dry film thickness using a wet film thickness gauge, and learned all about spot readings. We plan on continuing this type of training for years to come and watching our employees prosper in the painting field. Cracks and crevices that once warehoused bacteria and dirt in your floor are no longer a problem when you fill them in with a smooth epoxy finish.
Contact us today if you feel that the epoxy coating is the best flooring solution for your facility!
This is why it is important to prevent any damage that can be caused by dirt, salt, acid, and moisture during the winter before the integrity of your equipment is depleted.
This step is important because it removes all the existing coating and corrosion, down to the bare substrate, and creates a fresh canvas for a new coating to adhere to.
Find the purpose of your business and have it spring off your walls and resonate in your employees’ work. With clients such as Dunkin Donuts, AllState, Cannon and AT&T, we know what it takes to make a job look professional and keep our customers happy. Even out the primer by using long brush strokes and once again, check the surface for any drips. Condensation can cause bleed or shadowing in the surface which may cause dark streaks, blotches, or glossiness on the paint film. As the body absorbs nutrients and grows, lead transfers in and out of the bones, staying in your body for as long as twenty years. Since the report from either test does not indicate the condition of the paint or whether it poses a health risk, you may want to consider utilizing the next testing method which is a risk assessment.
First, make sure that the lead-based area is not a place where a lot of wear-and-tear occurs. Projects that require this type of preparation include tank and tower coating, church steeple restoration, exterior high rise renovations, heat stacks, bridge painting, and more.
A contractor that practices safe working habits has happier and healthier employees that are more likely to produce better standards of work. A unique feature of this job is that Alpine utilized a self-contained unit so there was no need for containment while blasting the exterior of the tank.
If awarded the project, our craftsmen will examine the site for sunlight exposure, wind speed, and precipitation factors, as well as more complex conditions – dew points, humidity levels, and substrate temperatures. Whether it is a heat wave that lasts for days or a twenty-four hour period of rain showers, obstructions are inevitable. Our employees strive to seize any opportunity to paint and finish the job in a timely fashion. We view this day as a reminder to stay committed to the fight for safe and healthful workplaces for all workers, including our own. We will forever stay committed to our safety program because to us there is nothing more important than having our workers go home safe to their families at the end of each day.
When it comes to manufacturing plants, Alpine has the right skills, patience and safety guidelines to contain your machinery and maneuver around it quickly and proficiently to satisfy your painting needs. We couldn’t be more proud of the hard work our Safety Manager and Field Workers put into the program and we are thankful to be recognized for their dedication. Different color coatings or line striping can be used to define safety zones, forklift traffic zones, assembly lines and more. Here at Alpine we will work with you to make sure we are using the paint best suited for your vehicles and equipment. To reach the paints full color and coating effect, apply two coats of paint to the surface.
We then create vent holes towards the top of the containment because without holes, the pressure difference can become so great that the entire containment can collapse. We are so appreciative to have been a member of this event and look forward to hearing how our work has affected the community for decades to come.
While weather conditions are obvious reasons to delay our job, we also want to ensure the safety of our workers.
That means if the climate is ideal, regardless of time, we will attempt to complete our project.
While being exposed to the elements and extreme temperature changes day in and day out your warehouses is bound to react.
Make sure to prime the surfaces where you see rust or surfaces where the sealant will not bond to. Finally, after all surface preparation is completed, we begin priming and painting with high performance, rust inhibitive coatings. Whether you are looking for a high-gloss finish, excellent durability, stand-out colors, or all of the above, Alpine will find the right solution. Here at Alpine we used common colors, wall designs, art, and canvas photos of our projects in every room to keep a theme throughout the office.
Heat strokes and dehydration are all clearly avoidable issues, but in order to prevent these mishaps, patience is needed. If we don’t observe the different dew points, humidity levels, and substrate temperatures, our paint jobs could potentially fail which not only means wasted resources and money, but also loss in credibility. We can’t promise that the approach to finding the right paint is easy, but we can guarantee that it will be worth it. Water can deteriorate the substrate, ultimately causing exposure of lead to the surrounding area.
