Restoration of Local Historic Covered Bridges

Our Field Coatings division restored two local historical landmarks: the Old Red Covered Bridge and the Wheeling Covered Bridge in Gibson County.  We were tasked by the Gibson County Economic Development Corporation with power washing the inside and outside of each bridge, to remove loose paint, rotted wood, dirt, debris, etc.  We then sprayed and back-rolled 2 coats of Sherwin-Williams Premium Exterior Duration Coating with the bridges respective colors.
