Is it Time to Repaint Your Commercial Property?
How to Determine It Is Time to Repaint Your Commercial Property
How Long Has it Been?
First, consider the last time you’ve had any painting done on your property. If you can’t remember, you’re probably due for an update. It is recommended that commercial exterior painting takes place about every 5 years to offset any fading, touch up areas that need it, and provide additional protection to your surfaces. In some cases, you might want to paint your property more frequently. For instance, properties that are under direct sunlight most of the time may need an update every 2-3 years, since the sun’s rays can lead to fading and peeling relatively quickly. Additionally, if your location is in a region with extreme weather conditions (i.e. very high and/or low temperatures, heavy rainfall, high winds, etc.), your property might require touching up every couple of years.
Are There Visible Signs of Damage or Deterioration?
Painting is more than merely an aesthetic measure. Practicality speaking, paint is meant to protect surfaces from threats like moisture intrusion, mold, pests, sunlight, thermal shock, and more. If you notice water damage, mold/mildew, or other forms of damage or deterioration, it might be time to hire commercial painters. Painting should be the final step in this process. You must first address the root of the problem and make all necessary repairs. After all that, a new coat of paint will patch up appearances and protect your newly fixed surfaces.
Are You Rebranding?
You might also invest in exterior and interior commercial painting for reasons outside of regular maintenance. If you’re changing up your brand image, for instance, you want your property to reflect this transition. This might mean incorporating different colors outside and inside your building. Even if your business changes aren’t so public, changing up the way your workplace looks can have a major impact on employee morale. Perhaps it’s time to introduce some new colors to your office and/or break rooms.
Are You Obligated to Repaint?
You might also be legally required to repaint your commercial property at given intervals or upon inspection. Make sure you’re familiar with all relevant building codes, industry regulations, and local and federal laws governing property maintenance. If it turns out you’re in violation of any of these mandates, painting should be a priority. Otherwise, you might get hit with fees and other penalties that far surpass the cost of repainting your property.
Is Your Competition Looking Fresh?
If your nearby competitors have recently painted their property, you might want to follow suit and hire commercial painting contractors, especially if your building has seen better days. Leaving things as they are might mean losing customers to your rivals, and your reputation may suffer as well.
