Le Montrose Suite Hotel

Exterior Painting

Over the years, we’ve been provide painting services to commercial clients. Le Montrose Suite Hotel is one of them.

Le Montrose Suite Hotel has 126 rooms, takes up most of a city block, is 4 stories high, has a swimming pool, deck and tennis court on the roof and is usually filled with guests who paid a lot of money not to have painters walking on their balconies.

If communication is an important part of working on a homeowner’s property (and it is) then this project was that X 10. Our biggest challenge was keeping our crew, the scaffolding team, a gutter company using the scaffolding and hotel management all on the same page.

We kept to a tight, precise schedule for working on each floor and balcony which was forwarded on to every guest each day. There were a few testy, challenging times but over all we accomplished what we had to, on time and on budget.


Knowing up front that this project was going to need a special project manager to be on sight full time and to help out with all the communication, I called on a 30 yr. experienced painting contractor from the East Coast, Jim Lautenslager. This is him hanging from scaffolding 3 stories up. (Did I mention Jim in his 60’s)
