The Town of Front Royal, Virginia, is seeking contractors to perform phase one of facade improvements on 12 existing buildings on East Main Street and Royal Avenue.

Historic decorative metal surfaces will require cleaning performed by a historic treatment specialist. Historic metal surfaces will require mechanical coating removal such as scaping or brushing that will not abrade the metal substrate. Historic ferrous metal surfaces will receive a fast-curing primer and a finish primer application.

The project also includes cleaning and coating non-historic metal surfaces. Cleaning will include mechanical brush cleaning and low- or medium-pressure water cleaning. Where necessary, detergent cleaning may be performed with a low-pressure spray. An alkaline paste, covered or skin-forming alkaline or solvent-type paste paint-remover may be used for removing paint from masonry, stone, wood, plaster or metal surfaces.

Ferrous metal substrates will receive a surface-tolerant primer, alkyd exterior intermediate coating and alkyd exterior semi-gloss topcoat. Wood column beam ceiling siding and fencing will require an exterior latex primer and latex exterior semi-gloss topcoat. Wooden door, window frames, casings and smooth fasciae will require an alkyd exterior wood primer and exterior semi-gloss latex topcoat. For wood siding, an alkyd exterior wood primer and latex exterior semi-gloss will be used.

Approved manufacturers include: American Building Restoration Products, Dumond Chemicals, Diedrich Technologies, Hydroclean, Prosoco, Benjamin Moore, Coronado Paint and Sherwin-Williams.
