Exterior Painting Project for Arcade in Pigeon Forge, TN
In April 2021, CertaPro Painters® of East Tennessee was hired to help with a refresh of a multi-color exterior for an arcade in a popular tourist area. The scope of the project included painting roughly 5000 square feet of EFIS/Stucco on the exterior. The challenges of the project were not the size, but the details due to the rough surfaces and use of many colors. The exterior also had LED light strips set up on most of the exterior surfaces, our crew cut in around the strips to ensure they held up through the project. The project ran from April-May 2021 and was completed in about 4 weeks.
Complex shape of surfaces on the exterior of the building, plus LED lighting that had to be preserved through the project.
The surfaces of the building were in good shape, but the original paint colors had faded. We did a few minor stucco repairs. Painting to the front of the building only. New paint scheme (as seen in the pictures).
We had to use Sherwin Williams Resilience due to the bold colors. This is a customer we have done several projects for similar to this. They own arcades and restaurants all around the Pigeon Forge/Sevierville, TN area. We had to use Sherwin Williams Resilience due to the bold colors.

3 coats of paint were applied to most of the surfaces due to the bold colors, and to cover up the old colors. The 3 coats were accounted for and included in the bid.
The only special equipment needed was a 45’ articulating lift. The main challenge was working around the traffic and people. We had limited hours we could work each day, and we could not work weekends due to customer traffic. Safety was obviously a big deal, not only because of the foot traffic around our work space, but also the power lines close to the building.
Professional Painting Services for Retail Buildings
If you are looking for help with an exterior painting and maintenance project for a retail building, resteraunt, or an arcade (like this one), we can help. Set up a free discovery meeting with a locally owned and operated CertaPro Painters franchise location to get started.
The CertaPro team surveyed the area and documented sections that would require their attention.
Exterior Before Painting
The exterior surfaces only needed a few small stucco repairs before painting.
Fading Paint Colors
The exterior colors on the building had started to fade to sun exposure and time.
THE FINAL RESULT
After the project was completed, the arcade has an updated exterior with bold colors that will draw the attention of tourists in the area.
A 45' articulating lift was used to reach all of the surfaces on the exterior of the building.
Updated Bold Colors
We did have to apply 3 coats of paint to most surfaces due to the bold colors we were using and covering up, but we accounted for that in our bid.
