How quickly can I get something blasted?
Most of the time we can get start right away. The best way to confirm our workload is to call us. We often work overtime to squeeze in jobs that are rush.
Isn’t all sandblasting the same?
No, if you don’t know what your doing with each type of material a sand blaster can do major damage to anything. For instance on a car restoration you have to know exactly what pressure to shoot at, the right angle, the right distance, and the right timing or duration in each area. If you get any of these parameters wrong you can warp or bow sheetmetal. It doesn’t take much to heat up metal quick to ruin the trueness of the metal. This kind of damage often doesn’t show up until you paint. It takes an expert blaster with a lot of experience to do auto restorations right.
