Lake Horton Pump House

Fayette County, GA

Lake Horton Park and Reservoir, located in south Fayette County is 780 acres and stores 3.5 billion gallons of water. In 2022, A & D Painting was sourced by Fayette County’s Department of Watershed-Management to pressure wash, repair, and recoat the exterior of the pump house located on the edge of the lake, with portions of the structure sitting directly over water.  The project scope included all cedar shingles, as well as all doors and trim.  While the work itself was somewhat simple in scope, access to the building proved to be somewhat challenging and required more detailed planning.  Project Managers at A & D Painting quickly decided that the most effect way to complete work was by way of a floating barge.  Once constructed, the barge gave the crews the necessary work space to complete all tasked needed for a successful project.

The structure was first pressure washed using a solution of mild soap and Prosoco EnviroKean BioWash.  Per the project scope, all siding repairs were then made using live-edge cedar.
