Interior Painting Project at Pleasant Valley Day School
In June 2020, Pleasant Valley Day School contacted CertaPro Painters® of Central Arkansas to complete an interior renovation project. The school for infants and toddlers stretches across 6,800 square feet inside the Pleasant Valley Church of Christ in Little Rock,AR. Pleasant Valley’s interior had gone seven to ten years without receiving any substantial attention in regards to painting. CertaPro’s professionals were well-equipped to transform the interior and bring it back to life.
Projects of this magnitude have their own set of unique challenges. Strong communication within the team and with the schools’s administration is paramount.
Pleasant Valley’s walls also contained a variety of murals that were sanded down and skim coated for a new surface to properly paint. The mural sanding, along with peeling paints and dirt elsewhere, required a HEPA vac for removal of refuse and dust.
- Peeling Paint – Paint on the walls and cabinets were failing due to the amount of years since its last update
- Dirt and Grime Accumulation – The buildup of dirt and dust was present, especially in the school cabinets
- Wall Murals – Wall murals were on display in all five rooms that were painted that required removal
- Electrical Outlet Exposure – Holes were created due to the removal or relocation of electrical outlets
- Prep – The area was cleaned, sanded, and repaired to create a genuine backdrop for painting
- Paint – A light grey, semi-gloss pre-catalyzed epoxy was used to coat the walls, frames, cabinets, and wainscot
PROJECT TIMELINE – 3 days
Before the project commenced, CertaPro’s team gathered images of the rooms in Pleasant Valley Day School that required attention.
The school had a dark beige color that sprawled across the walls windows, and door frames.
Ragged Trim, Frames, and Outlets
Window trim and door frames were worn and electrical outlets were removed or relocated.
Worn and Dirty Cabinets
Paint was failing on the cabinets that caused it peel and an accumulation of dirt was present, requiring cleaning.
RENOVATING PLEASANT VALLEY DAY SCHOOL
During the progress made on the school’s restoration, CertaPro Painters® of Central Arkansas collected images to display their approach in providing a professional finish.
The dark beige was removed to lighten up the rooms, creating a more vibrant environment for the administration and children alike.
Before the cabinets could be finished, they needed a deep cleaning and some slight modifications, including filling holes that were present.
Light Interior Repair
Cabinets and wainscoting were scrutinized to make sure all sections were properly updated for painting.
THE FINAL RESULT
When the project was completed, CertaPro Painters® of Central Arkansas analyzed the finished product to ensure their standards had been met and the Pleasant Valley staff was satisfied.
The cabinets were repaired and professionally finished for a clean, brand new look.
Long Lasting Protection
An epoxy paint was used to raise the functionality of the building for child care, adding a strong layer protection and an easy clean coating.
The murals were covered and replaced with a blank grey canvas adding to the fresh appeal to the new interior.
