We take the time to fully understand your project and document exactly what we recommend and how we’re going to do it.

We can tackle your power washing needs, no water source required! All of our moblie power washing units have large capacity water storage tanks and operate independently of an outside water source, allowing us to power wash anywhere. We also have washers with generators that do not require an outside power source.
 
McCahill Painting has perfected our method of using 250-degree hot water to power wash a wide array of surfaces with excellent results, often without the need for additional cleaning agents. We are also careful to manage water use and runoff safely and responsibly. Using a vacuum recovery and filtration unit along with our mobile washer skid creates a self-contained wash, recover, and recycle system that protects the environment from wash water runoff and complies with governmental storm drain regulations and other standards. Learn more about our industry-leading power washing capabilities. 
McCahill Painting offers professional hot water power washing, which we've found to be the absolute best formula for removing even the most stubborn contaminants to prepare surfaces for painting. To learn more, check out our Surface Preparation and Power Washing pages.
 

Absolutely! With thousands of successful projects under our belt, we’ve tackled nearly every substrate and have a well-developed understanding of what products and techniques work best for each material to ensure attractive, long-lasting results. We are experienced at painting and restoring substrates including precast concrete, structural steel, metal, brick, stone, wood, drywall, cinderblock, stucco, IPE decking, Koroseal wallcoverings, and more.

We can help you achieve a professional appearance from top to bottom by expertly painting your core structure and any adjacent features like railings, beams, overhead doors, floors, dock areas, and architectural details. We have experience restoring artwork and sculpture installations as well!

Yes! McCahill Painting provides above-grade waterproofing and sealing services to stop and prevent water infiltration that can lead to leaks, mold, mildew and decay of the substrate. Our professional-grade sealing products keep water out while still allowing brick and stone to breathe and moisture to escape. 

When water is absorbed through exterior masonry, it can seep through to the interior of the building leading to leaks, mold, and mildew. On the exterior, water absorption promotes unsightly biological growth that can decay the surface material and tuckpointing.
