Webinar Shows the Why, Hows of Spot QA


Quality-assurance inspections that can be performed on a spot basis during cleaning and painting projects will be the focus of an upcoming educational webinar hosted by Durability + Design.

Spot QA Assessments of Ongoing Cleaning and Painting Projects,” a D+D Educational Series Webinar, will be presented at 11 a.m. ET March 26.

Why Spot Inspections?

Experts note that the longterm performance of paint applied to building walls depends on the quality of cleaning, installation, and associated repairs.

Unfortunately, they say, the inspection of paint and paint-related work is typically confined to a quick visual assessment after the project is finished—a review that may be both too little and too late.

This webinar will discuss quality-assurance inspections that can be conducted throughout the project to help improve the quality and longevity of both the paint and associated building repairs.

Participants may register here free. The webinar is sponsored by Sherwin-Williams.
