Alpine Painting & Sandblasting Contractors is proud to be a certified member of the SSPC, the Society for Protective Coatings. SSPC is a non-profit professional society focused on protective coatings for industrial steel structures. Alpine Painting became a certified member of the SSPC in 2012 with the intention of maintaining the highest and latest level of quality and safety standards in our industry.

Through the use of high-performance protective marine and industrial coatings, SSPC serves to protect and preserve concrete, steel and other industrial and marine structures such as boats, ships and ship bulkheads for example. SSPC‘s role in the industrial steel structure industry is to provide the latest information on surface preparation, coating selection, coating application, environmental regulations, and health and safety issues.

As a certified member of SSPC, we ensure that all of our jobs have a certified inspector on site and that our project managers maintain the proper paperwork for quality and safety control for each job. Alpine Painting is pleased to say that we are the only company in the country to maintain all three of the following QP certifications: QP1, QP2, & QP9.

QP 1 evaluates contractors performing surface preparation and industrial coating application on steel structures.

QP 2 as a supplement to QP1 evaluates the contractor’s ability to perform industrial hazardous paint removal in the field. Two QP 2 categories are obtainable based on the type of equipment and the type of containment.

QP 9 evaluates the qualifications of painting contractors who apply architectural coatings on commercial or institutional structures, and outlines a minimum standard for qualification.

Whether it be a heat exchanger or a marine bulkhead; an apartment complex or a church; or anything in between, we have the certified people for the job.


Alpine Painting & Sandblasting Contractors is also proud to be one of a very select group of accredited PDCA painting contractors in the country. Alpine was awarded full PDCA Accreditation by completing all coursework and submitting all necessary forms through the Painting and Decorating Contractors of America’s Contractor College. This PDCA Accreditation has been held by Alpine since 2007. According to the PDCA, this accreditation signifies Alpine Painting’s excellence in company management, as well as a passion for continuing education. Our employees partook in numerous courses regarding topics as diverse as new technologies, environmental concerns, safety issues, and successful business practices to earn this accreditation, and information learned was passed along in employee meetings to ensure everyone is kept up to date.

The PDCA defines its Accreditation as a way for painting and decorating contractors to strive for excellence and distinguish themselves as a leader in this competitive industry, a quality that Alpine Painting has always prided itself on. Alpine is one of only 100 currently PDCA accredited Painting Contractors in the United States, putting us in the top percentile of contractors across the country. Our accreditation also requires us to stay up to date on all things in the painting industry, so you can rest easy knowing Alpine’s history of excellence will continue far into the future.
