Hartzell Painting & Waterproofing Contractors

Serving South Florida Since 1948

In 1948, Wilbur Hartzell founded a roof cleaning company in the Hollywood, FL area. By the early 1950’s business expanded to include roof paint manufacturing. Ed Holman began working for the growing company in the early ‘70’s, and in 1976 took over operations of the painting division. Ed’s brother, George, joined Hartzell as General Manager. Together they expanded operations to include residential and commercial painting, weatherproofing and specialty coatings.

In response to our customers’ ongoing maintenance needs, in 1992 Hartzell launched its Community Beautification Program.

Extend the Life of Your Building and Lower Maintenance Costs

Hartzell Painting Contractors provide end-to-end waterproofing services, from protective coatings to wet seal and glazing, to caulking, to restoration and sealing. We work hand-in-hand with engineers, architects, masons, and other construction consultants to determine which waterproofing processes will best protect your buildings.

Florida’s tropical climate necessitates many waterproofing and coating considerations to prevent moisture build-up, corrosion, the impact of harmful UV rays, and water leakage. Our professional crew surveys each aspect of your structure and makes calculated recommendations regarding which waterproofing methods to apply.

By investing in proper waterproofing procedures, you not only extend the life of your buildings, but also set the stage for lower maintenance costs. Whether planning for a new residential development or renovating an existing commercial complex, Hartzell Painting Contractors has your waterproofing needs covered.


Hartzell’s Electrostatic Coatings Bring Your Metal Structures to Life

From older metal fixtures and finishes that may lack luster to new construction, Hartzell Painting Contractors’ electrostatic coating method can bring your metal structures to life. Our extensive experience combined with top-notch materials and skilled technique results in seamless finishes.

One of the benefits of electrostatic coating involves a significant paint cost savings. Due to the extremely high transfer efficiency of its painting process, less overspray occurs, resulting in far less paint waste.

Whether you aspire to have a sleek railing or gate, a colorful playground, or distinctive industrial piping, our electrostatic coating options will deliver your desired look. Our top-of-the-line materials coupled with our excellent workmanship extend the life of its enamel-like finish. The surfaces allow for easy cleaning as they are nonporous and thus not reactive to most cleaning solutions.


Enhances the Appearance of your Building and Lengthens the Lifespan of Your Property

Maintaining your building’s exterior with periodic pressure cleaning goes a long way by enhancing its appearance, its longevity, and property value. Corrosive elements such as acid rain, bird and bug debris, trash, and pollution soil surfaces and affect their structural integrity.

Through pressure washing, Hartzell Painting Contractors can remove these elements from your exterior surfaces. Patios, roofs, pavers, sidewalks, windows and walls all benefit from this cleaning method. Plus, we employ hot water pressure cleaning to remove oil, grease and gum from surfaces like parking garages.

We also provide non-pressure roof cleaning, in such cases where a more gentle cleaning method would better serve the roof’s material. This process involves the use of non-corrosive and biodegradable chemical that dissolves mildew, streaks and visible spoilage.

For added value and convenience, Hartzell Painting Contractors offer a pressure cleaning maintenance program.


A Choice of a Gentle or ann Aggressive Surface Cleaning and Resurfacing

Vapor Blasting: For surfaces such as antique finishes, soft metals, and wood, which require a more delicate process, Hartzell Painting Contractors apply vapor blasting. This method uses water to remove harsh coatings from surfaces, but unlike dry blasting, minimizes hazardous dust byproduct. Vapor blasting offers the added benefit of a fresh surface appearance without the complicated set-up and clear out required by other approaches.

Sandblasting: Sandblasting serves as another effective process for cleaning and prepping surfaces. While not as gentle as vapor blasting, sandblasting can tackle tough removal challenges, like removing paint and stripping tough surfaces including cement, pavement and parking lots. Relative to vapor blasting, sandblasting utilizes more material and involves more preparation and cleanup. However, sandblasting will better achieve the desired results on certain surfaces. Hartzell Painting Contractors will assess each surface and recommend the best blasting option accordingly.


Catwalks, Driveways, Pool Decks and More

Through our decorative overlays, Hartzell Painting Contractors can turn boring concrete into an interesting, texture-rich surface. Not only do these decorative finishes look beautiful, but also, they can create a safe, non-slip surface for pool decks, patios and other areas.

With an array of colors and patterns, our Spray-Deck coating can enhance the appearance and functionality of any surface. Its durability, water and mildew-resistance, and overall low maintenance make Spray-Deck a popular choice for residential and commercial properties.

Kool-Deck, another coating variety, offers the added advantage of lowering the surface temperature. Given the cooler feel, many opt for Kook-Deck to coat their patios, pool surroundings and walkways.

For a highly customized look, we offer Euro Tile. With Euro Tile, we can tailor the colors, patterns and texture, resulting in a unique creation to match your architectural vision.
