Painting Mullions

Mullions and Paint

Windows do a lot for buildings.  They allow light to illuminate the inside of a building, they allow people to look out and survey the Los Angeles cityscape and they can open up a space.  Having a building with several windows can be a very desirable thing.  When there are two windows adjacent to each other, mullions are used in the frames that join them together.  In addition, mullions are also used in the framing of curtain walls.  For someone wanting to impart color into a building, this can be a great opportunity.  Painting mullions can give a new look to the building, making it look fresh and exciting.

A mullion can be made out of a variety of materials and someone who wants to paint these structures will need to know what painting technique to use on the material the mullion is composed of. The use of primers and paint designed specifically for a material, for example, may be necessary in order to properly coat the material.  It may also be essential to use a paint that is specifically geared for the environment the mullion is exposed to.  A professional in painting will be able to offer techniques and paints appropriate for painting the mullion in specific building environments.
