Amongst the many challenges facility managers, building and property managers face is getting the perfect look and finish for an office or retail building. Taking the steps to choose the right contractor and get a great paint job can be difficult. Commercial painting is a necessity for facilities managers who want to enhance the look of their building and their business.
Here are some of our tips for getting the best possible outcome.
Choose the Right Colors
While customers want their business to catch the eye of potential customers they also want to be careful to select colors that will are not overpowering. Using bold-accent walls can effectively make strong statements, but less is more when it selecting very bright colors. By focusing on and choosing calmer color palette, landlords and business operators could avoid overwhelming potential tenants or customers. Adding bold color through pictures, photographs, pillows, and other decorative elements is a more temporary and less expensive way to add some color.
While some people may think that paint primer is an unnecessary or over-the-top requirement, painting professionals will tell you otherwise. Having a chemical barrier in between the wall and any new layer of paint will prevent the colors from turning dull once the paint dries. It can also help the paint job to last longer. Paint wear and tear often occurs because the compounds used to fill holes and imperfections when the wall was built can pull moisture out of freshly applied paint. If painting teams are painting over bright or deep color, primer is necessary to protect the integrity of the new color.
Take the Time to Clear the Work Area
When commercial painting contractors come to start a job, technicians will not start applying color until the area (room, store, entrance, hallway, office area) is fully prepped. Before a painting contractor can prepare the room, Technicians will need customers tenants or employees to clear their designated work area.
