Painting Hotels & Resorts
As commercial painters in the Midwest, we've see our fair share of hotels and resort projects. We welcome the work, as each presents a different set of challenges, testing the limits of our technical expertise and craftsmanship. Here are a few things to keep in mind when contracting for interior and exterior work at hotels and resorts.
A hotel or resort is all about presentation. It begins with the exterior. No prospective guest is going to stay at your hotel or resort if it appears worn down or otherwise lackluster. Whether the structure resembles a log-cabin, an alpine retreat, or features a more standard architectural appearance, it will need an attractive paint or stain. And if the structure is made of brick, then window coatings and columns, etc., will need to be accented to enhance the exterior's look.
Remember that the Midwest's winter freeze/thaw cycle can cause damage to the exterior. Repairs and refinishing may very well be necessary, especially if you want to get those guests in the door. Also keep in mind that exterior surfaces like metal railings, lampposts, signs, ramps, etc., might also need coatings. Easty to overlook, but essential to a complete hotel and resort appearance.
After the exterior draws guests in, the interior should keep them there. Whether hotel and resort owners want elegance, understatement, a wilderness vibe, or anything in between, the best thing you can do is to keep all spaces looking their best. Some areas will need paint, others will need stain. Still others might need some wallpaper, which can and often does look great in hotels and resorts. Interiors take a lot of beating, so touch-ups will be necessary over weeks, months and years.
And if you're thinking of a wholescale redesign of the interior space, please consult with an interior designer and painting contractor first. You'll be happy you did.
