It’s summertime. Do you know where your kids are? Probably not in school, and that’s why summer is an ideal time for school districts to engage in school repainting projects. While there are obviously times when interior painting contractors are required during the school year, it’s much easier to do a total repaint project when school is out.
School interiors lead a tough life. Kids from all over the Las Vegas Valley are pretty much the same when it comes to behavior in schools. Elementary kids are more rambunctious and older students are bigger and heavier, but both are capable of scraping up walls, damaging floorboards, and other unintentional damage. It’s not surprising that schools require more maintenance than most homes and many businesses.
Of course, the best benefit of repainting a school during the summer is that students start the new school year in a school with bright, clean classrooms, hallways, and other areas, and that’s a big boost to morale.
School Painting Challenges
A school painting contract spells out specific concerns for painting contractors in Las Vegas. Issues like safety, environment, low odor paint, use of eco-friendly paints, and surface preparation are commonly detailed in a school district’s request for bids. Homeowners actually have these same concerns but rarely spell them out when considering an exterior or interior painting project.
And that’s where ALLPro Painters stands out from the rest of the painters in Las Vegas. Our processes already incorporate best practices. We don’t have to change operations in order to comply with the requirements in a school contract. With over 40,000 painting projects completed, many of them for schools, we have the experience and fine-tuned processes that allow us to be very competitive in our proposals.
The AllPro Painters Difference
There’s another important element in a school repaint that sometimes does not receive the attention it should, and that’s the colors used. The decision on what color(s) will be applied is typically left to school administrators, teachers, or the maintenance crew. As a result, white turns out to be a popular choice.
According to the International Association of Color Consultants – North America (IACC-NA), a school’s physical environment has a powerful psycho-physiological impact on its students. Schools are reluctant to seek out color consultation because of budgetary concerns.
AllPro Painters offers our homeowner customers a professional in-home paint color consultant to assist in selecting the right shade and finish that best meet their expectations. We offer the same service, at no cost, to schools pondering what colors to use.
Using the right colors can make a significant difference in student performance. White is boring and leads to distraction and inattentiveness. Too many bright colors are equally distracting. Neutrals can set the tone and act as great backdrops for the many other colors that find their way on school walls in the form of posters and artwork.
