2. Avoiding Debris and Inclement Weather
In the case that you DO have enough space on your site to lay out each board to dry, other factors can affect the final finish of your product coating on-site. Dirt, debris, and bugs often found on job sites can easily blow around and stick to wet material. In addition, unpredictable weather-related damage such as rain, wind and sun exposure, can disrupt the coating process altogether.

By allowing Excelsior to take over the task of coating your material, you can avoid the stress of rushing a paint job prior to a rainstorm. Your products will be coated and dried in a covered, temperature-controlled environment away from the elements, resulting in a beautiful finish your customer (or yourself) will be proud to show off.
3. Decreasing Blistering and Bubbling
As stated above, to coat exterior products effectively, all sides must be coated to protect the material from weather-related wear-and-tear. That includes the face of the board, the back, two ends and two edges, all needing optimal time for coating and drying.
Most people on-site choose to forgo this recommendation and coat just the face of the boards to save time.

…not recommended, especially with wood products. Wood that is not protected on all sides will absorb more moisture through the unsealed back and ends of the boards, which could create an undesired blistering effect on the painted face of the boards.
Luckily, Excelsior has the ability to provide a fully coated product to ensure your wood is properly prepared. You will not regret allowing us to take this extra step to ensure a professional finish that will not have to be repaired due to short cuts.
4. Saving Time and Money
As far as budgets are concerned, labor costs to coat materials in the field (correctly) can really add up. It can take on-site workers twice as long to do the same work as it does for a properly applied factory finish by a machine. Plus, if you do not have a connection with a reputable coatings supplier, you may end up paying double for just the actual coating…this is not sounding better for anyone’s wallet.
Excelsior’s machine sprayer will definitely save you time and money on your project by eliminating the need for additional machinery and laborers on-site. Our machine coats every board evenly, quickly, and up to the high-end standard expected of a factory finished product. Have you ever watched our guys put those boards through the sprayer? Very impressive!
