Maintenance Contracts

We offer annual and biennial contracts. We will customize a maintenance plan that is suitable to the Owner of the facility. These contracts usually include, but are not limited to:

  • Pressure washing the interior using 3500 psi
  • Disinfection of the interior, according to the Owner's specifications
  • Minor touch-ups to the interior and exterior
  • Digital photos and/or video of the inspection

If a municipality does not to commit to this kind of contract, we would be glad to perform a one time inspection of your water tower. 



We sandblast according to SSPC standards. We blast using a No. 10 or a No. 6, whichever is specified in the contract.

For the roofs that we install we use welded 3/16" steel sheets with a frost-free ventilation system. We use OSHA and EPA approved man-ways. All new steel is coated with an epoxy system. We have certified welders for any type of welding services you may need.
