QP 1 Certified
G.C. Zarnas is QP 1 certified, which is a nationally recognized program that evaluates the practices of industrial painting contractors in key areas of business. The complex nature of coating systems and the specific surface preparations required for these systems have made the QP 1 guidelines vital to the longevity of applied protective coatings.

QP 2 is a supplement to QP 1 that evaluates the contractor’s ability to perform industrial hazardous paint removal in a field operation. As a certified lead contractor, we specialize in the removal, disposal, and encapsulation of these hazardous materials from many structures including commercial buildings, power plants, steel plants, and petrochemical and chemical facilities.
QP 8 Certified
G.C. Zarnas is a QP 8 certified contractor. This certification is intended to be used by facility owners (or their protective coating specialists or specifying engineers) to ensure that contractors hired to install polymer coatings or surfacings on concrete and other cementitious surfaces in commercial, institutional, and industrial facilities have the primary technical capabilities and organizational structure necessary to do the work.
