NOB I have a welding shop in my garage and have made some trellises for the yard, gates for clients, etc. I typically have them powder coated by a local company. I see tons of great metal work here in Bucerias however, it looks like the standard here is to paint. Seems to me that can lead to many years of upkeep; wire brrushing, sanding, re-painting, etc. Does anyone know if in your community there are folks who do powder coating? Seems to me it could be a great business here!?
Note: for those that may not know, powder coating is a process by which a colored powder is elctrostatically adheared to the metal and then baked at a relativley low temperature, producing an enamel-like surface on the metal. Lasts for years reducing upkeep.
