Architectural Painting Specification Decision Tree

The Master Painters Institute (MPI) Architectural Painting Specification Decision Tree method was developed as a result of a request from the U.S. Navy. Using this version of the manual should be easier for anyone specifying paint systems for the multiple architectural substrates (both interior and exterior). The focus of this process is a simple question and answer method to attain the best possible system for a specific substrate. The user will be asked to answer from 8-10 questions for each system.


Used worldwide by the U.S. Department of Defense, SpecsIntact is an automated system for preparing standardized facility construction specifications and makes it possible to assure quality control for project specifications from beginning to the end.

The SpecsIntact system is used by engineers, architects, specification writers, project managers and construction managers doing business with all government agencies. Unlike many specification programs today, SpecsIntact and the UFGS Master are available at no charge as it is a government funded application.
