If you have a business and the building is looking rundown, this can affect your revenue. Your customers or clients see your building before they see you. If they see something run down, this gives them a bad first impression. Fortunately, there are many things you can do to make the building look much better, one of which is applying a new coat of paint to your building. To do this, hire an exterior commercial painting company.  Below is information on how this works, as well as tips on maintaining the paint after the job is done. 

Painting the Building

Sit down with the exterior commercial painting contractor to decide what color you would like your building. Consider neutral colors for your building, such as white, grays, blues, or beiges. Acrylic paints are often used to paint commercial buildings. This is because acrylic paint is durable and resistant to water. You can choose acrylic paint in different finishes, such as eggshell, semi-gloss, and gloss. The paint is applied with a roller, brush, or spray and dries quickly. The contractor may choose to put more than one coat of paint on the building. 

Before the contractor starts, they will inspect the building and repair damage such as dents. They then clean the building thoroughly and allow it to completely dry.  A primer is generally painted on first. This allows for better adhesion for the paint and also makes the paint more durable. 

The exterior commercial painting company will generally use a sprayer to apply the paint. They may also use a roller in areas and a hand brush for small areas that are hard to get to. Å sprayer allows them to apply the paint more quickly and evenly. 

Maintaining the New Paint

The main thing you need to do is keep your building clean. The easiest way to do this is by using a power washer. If you are not experienced, there are professionals you can hire to do this for you. If there is any mold or mildew growing on the building, the company may use bleach to kill the mold spores so that they do not grow back again. 

You can keep the building clean on your own as you see it become dirty by using a long-handled brush and a hose. Consider having your building professionally cleaned one to two times a year, or as needed. 

Along with painting, consider landscaping, adding a new roof, installing new windows, and more.
