You might say that machine finished color on your home is the proverbial icing on the cake. Why? Take a trip with us over to Delkote Machine Finishing, part of the Deltec family of companies. This is where we apply machine finished paint to your siding and fascia, as well as stain to your woodwork, such as tongue and groove ceilings and decks. It’s also where we apply FrameGuard® to the structure of your home.
What else happens here? Quality, as well as a meticulous attention to detail that will blow you away. Delkote’s Machine Finishing is a process that assures a longer-lasting and higher quality job than traditional “on-site” applications.
With Delkote’s unique encapsulation process, all six sides of the board, including the butt-ends, are run through the flow-coater and completely covered in paint, ensuring the ultimate protection. The product is allowed to dry thoroughly prior to leaving the factory-controlled environment, and arrives at the construction site totally protected from exposure to water and sunlight, with no color variation, lap marks, streaking or dirt pick-up.
The weather, dirt and general chaos of any job site can’t compete with the conditions inside Delkote’s machine-finishing plant: siding is never exposed to the elements and the most stringent quality control procedures are followed.
By using our Delkote process on fiber cement siding, Sherwin Williams provides a 25 year warranty on the paint! Talk to your sales rep or project manager for more information about using Delkote Machine Finishing for your Deltec home.
Top three photos, from the left: The boards are run through the flow coat machine multiple times; After making sure the color is evenly applied and that there are no lap lines, the boards are moved to giant drying racks; The butt ends of the boards are inspected and, if necessary, touched up by hand.
Bottom three photos, from the left: Boards remain on the racks until the paint, stain or Frameguard® is completely dry; The soffitt vent and H-channel pieces are too small to run through the flow coat machine—they receive several coats of paint by hand.
