Commercial Painting, Maintenance & Preservation Services

We satisfy hundreds of general contractors and property owners with quality, safety and on-time performance. Commercial services include everything from surface preparation, architectural coating applications, wall coverings, to the preservation and restoration of historical buildings.

The need for our commercial services grew from our success in the industrial market. While on industrial and manufacturing sites, our craftspeople were asked to provide coating applications to commercial buildings, structures and various office spaces.

As a result, we created a separate division to focus on the specialized architectural needs of this market, while providing cost savings solutions to maintain their facilities – everything from paint, to wall coverings and abatement.

We work with diversified clients including general contractors who are working on large scale projects to facility engineers at colleges, universities and healthcare networks. We also provide maintenance packages to property managers and home owner associations who can rely on a painting contractor to save them money on maintaining the beauty of their communities.

Let G.C. Zarnas provide their high level of expertise, quality and reliability to your large or small projects! 

“Zarnas is very dependable and one of the few painting contractors that would be proud to place their name on the finished project. They are the major painting contractors we turn to when we have maintenance painting or new construction painting needs.”


Commercial Interior

Interior Painting

We apply a variety of architectural coating applications to beautify and protect your structures. But it’s not just about color and texture, it’s about creating the environment that is motivating to your employees, potential clients and customers. Our skills in commercial painting become critical in setting the right environment and tone of the interior of our clients’ facilities. From special coating applications on Disney World entertainment buildings to general painting and wall coverings in the Hilton Baltimore Convention Center, we are the commercial painter of choice for many owners and general contractors.

From downtown office buildings to historical buildings, acute care and senior living communities, G.C. Zarnas has the experience to complete exterior painting on time and within budget. Difficult rigging and congested spaces are not a problem since we specialize in a wide-range of scaffolding systems. We are skilled at working in all types of exterior environments including coating the top of the Willis Tower (former Sears Tower) in Chicago, Illinois – the second tallest building in the United States.

Historic Preservation

Our knowledge and expertise in cleaning, coatings, and restoration techniques have played an integral role in bringing buildings back to their original appearances. Clients like Princeton University selected G.C. Zarnas to apply coatings to preserve their buildings including Baker Rink, Andlinger Center for Humanities, and Cleveland Memorial Hall. We also work with consulting firms who retain us to restore and remove hazardous paints from historical structures such as Lehigh University’s campus to The National Museum of Industrial History, a 100-year-old-former Bethlehem Steel facility on the largest private brownfield in America.

New Construction

Zarnas performing the vehicular expansion joint sealant work in a multi-level parking garage. We also applied intumescent fireproofing, plus low-density cementitious (spray-applied) fireproofing and high-density cementitious (trowel-applied) fireproofing and epoxy and general paint in the new John Paul Jones Basketball Arena, the largest stadium of its kind in VA.
