Some mailboxes and light post need more than just a fresh coat of paint. Some have broken, missing parts. Some even need welding. We carry many of the parts to repair most situations. Including new acrylic 3D numbers, vinyl numbers, new flags, door closers, cross poles, replacement glass and gold eagles to name a few.
Since the light post are made of steel, many times they rust through at the base and fall over. We have a couple of solutions to repair this situation. One is to set the existing pole in a new concrete base and the other is to completely replace the pole.
John and Katie are a brother sister team who have been restoring mailboxes to their original glory for over 3 years now. They both are teens that live in Fontainebleau subdivision in Mandeville. Just in case you are worried, all the work is overseen by their father for quality control.
Each mailbox and light post goes through a rigorous process to make the refinishing job last as long as possible.
The mailbox and light post are first scraped to remove any flaking or loose paint. Next, they are lightly sanded to remove any imperfections and give the new paint a good surface to adhere to. Once sanded, the mailbox and post are washed with soap and a bristle brush to remove any remaining dirt and sanding dust, then let to dry.
Once cleaned, the mailbox and post are given two coats of Rustoleum brand high gloss black paint. Then finished off with a freshly painted, bright red flag and gold lettering.
