Providing the perfect combination for Chepstow Hotel

A family-run hotel in Chepstow has been given an exterior makeover thanks to Sadolin Beautiflex®.

The Beaufort Hotel

The Beaufort Hotel has been run by Michael Collins and his family for almost 30 years.

Sandtex was previously used on the hotel’s facade 12 years ago, and as the owners were impressed by its durability they contacted Cardiff Crown Decorating Centre when they decided to brighten up the space recently. Wanting to update the building’s exterior appearance, the team worked with Crown’s colour consultant Kathryn Lloyd to identify the ideal colour scheme, deciding on Ral 7015 and British Standard 00A01.

Located close to Chepstow’s high street, Beaufort Hotel required high performance, durable products that would stand the test of time. Based on this requirement, Crown specified Beautiflex and Sandtex X-Treme X-Posure.

Beautiflex was used for the exterior woodwork around the hotel’s windows. Its microporous formulation resists cracking, peeling and flaking provided the wood has been properly prepared, to offer protection for up to seven years. It offers excellent opacity and colour retention, and is available in a myriad of colours – making it the ideal solution for Beaufort Hotel’s revitalised colour scheme.

Sandtex X-Treme X-Posure was used on the hotel’s exterior masonry and will protect the building against the elements for up to 20 years. Its excellent adhesion and flexibility ensure that the Beaufort Hotel’s exterior remains protected and attractive for years to come.

Our technical team work hard to ensure all our products provide excellent durability and a superior finish for clients, so it’s great to hear that the client is so pleased with how the hotel now looks.
