Yonamine Paint touts energy-saving coating

Date Posted: 2012-02-17

A local paint company that began small in 1977 and has grown to be an Okinawa leader as it deals with individuals, companies and governments, is now putting emphasis on energy-saving processes and waterproofing techniques.

Yonamine Paint Inc., is promoting “Hot Guard,” a coating that helps with power saving as it reflects sunrays and the heat caused by them when painted on windows. It can reflect heat in the summertime and serve as extra insulation in winter time. With the process, says a Yonamine Paint official, room temperatures can be reduced by 2-3 degrees, and that translates to economizing on air conditioning costs. Yonamine Paint handled the painting of the Ginowan City Office Building last year, earning a solid reputation.

The Nakagusuku-based company offers both exterior ~ outer wall, and interior painting, as well as waterproofing processes. The company says it’s confident every project it accomplishes is done to the highest specifications, and because of that, it’s been entrusted with painting and waterproofing projects both on-base and off-base. Yonamine Paint also makes and fits parking gates, does house renovations, and joins in a lot of public works projects. For the past five years, Yonamine Paint has had a contract for painting houses on U.S. bases, and has another three-year contract for repairing floor tiles.

The company is also known for its on-base projects that include non-slip work at the entrances of shops, repairing and painting playground equipment, aircraft corrosion control, and interior painting services at the heavy equipment storage barn. Yonamine Paint Inc. has more than 30 years’ experience in the field, and the current president, Masaharu Yonamine, is the second generation leader of the company.

Shogo Tomori, a coordinator at Yonamine Paint, says proper painting of houses is important to reduce damage caused by sunlight, rain, typhoon and salt in Okinawa’s air. The company is also able to show a computerized color simulation to customers who are considering a paint job on their houses, inside or out. “The simulation is free,” says Tomori, “so please feel free to call us at 098-942-3200.” Tomori notes “We have done a lot of painting for customers who are not only off-base residents, but also the U.S. government. We have plenty of confidence in our work such as interior and outer wall painting, waterproofing and playground equipment painting.”

“Painting is same as anything else,” he adds. “buildings need routine check ups to maintain their beauty.”
