Painting Above Ground Propane Tanks
For your safety, above ground propane tanks need to be covered in a heat reflective paint as standardized by the National Fire Protection Association and Railroad Commission of Texas.
Dark, heat absorbing colors and paints can cause gas to expand in your tank, which can lead to the safety valve opening and releasing gas. Let our team keep you protected by professionally painting your propane tank!
Our process includes:
- Washing your tank to remove grease and dirt.
- Sanding to scrub rust and hard to remove grime off your tank.
- Priming your tank if it needs it.
- Painting a reflective color of your choice.
Common color choices are white, light gray, and silver, but home and business owners have also gone with colors to match their house, business, or landscape.
Painting Underground Propane Tanks
Before installing an underground propane tank, it also needs proper paint and coatings in order to keep you safe. Underground tanks are susceptible to rust and corrosion due to fluctuating groundwater levels and the near-constant moisture surrounding them. Over time the tank’s integrity will fail, causing a gas leak.
Let our professionals apply a waterproof barrier around your tank before settling it into a corrosive underground environment. Not only does this help protect you from gas leaks, but it also increases the life of your tank and saves you money on replacement.
