Can switching paint brands really save you money?
THE HOTEL CHAIN EXPERIMENT
Figure 1: 36% less paint was required to complete the project when using Hanford+Green
After the painting was completed, the hotel chain told us that they were able to have the Hanford+Green rooms back in service the same evening.
This was thanks to a combination of faster drying times and the paint having a very low odour.
The rooms painted with the leading brands however, had too strong a smell and had to remain out of service for 24 hours.
Figure 2: Due to the exceptional recoat times of under 1 hour and the fact that the 100% water based formula has virtually zero odour. When using Hanford+Green paints, the hotel chain was able to get the rooms back in service the same day.
Following the initial experiment, we left the hotel chain with some more paint to use for their on-going maintenance.
After several weeks of testing the hotel chain reported back to us the following unexpected benefits:
- Due to the excellent opacity of the paint, they found that only 1 coat was needed on the woodwork. Saving them an average of 1 hour in labour costs per room.
- When using our paint, they were able to clean and/or touch up areas far easier, often having the room back in service within 1 hour. From this they predicted they could potentially extend the maintenance cycle of each room by up to 1 year.
With all these factors combined, it was estimated that the hotel chain could save over £3m per year simply by switching paint brands.
This test proved that on larger commercial projects using traditional ‘off the shelf’ paints is not the most cost effective solution.
Instead, products such as Hanford+Green’s acrylic paint range can offer substantial savings of both time and money.
