There’s hardly anyone that doesn’t appreciate a freshly painted building. However, keeping a facility painted properly can be a huge task and, therefore, one that may be delayed. If you are reluctant to take on a large scale painting project, here are some important reasons not to delay calling in a professional facility management company to get the job done right.
Let’s start with the two obvious and closely related advantages of keeping your facility properly painted: improved image and appeal. A building that is in disrepair sends a message to the client or customer that the business does not care, isn’t profitable, and may not be worth their time. Conversely, a freshly painted building lets customers, clients, and visitors know that they too will receive attention.
Compared to most other renovations or updates, painting is one of the most cost-effective projects you can do because the financial benefits it provides can easily exceed the cost of hiring a professional facilities maintenance professional. Keeping the building freshly painted attracts customers, and a clean bright atmosphere boosts productivity.
Protects Your Investment
Commercial buildings need constant maintenance and upkeep to protect the facility and keep it optimally functional. If the exterior paint is flaking or peeling, the structure beneath it is left exposed. Once exposed, it is vulnerable to mildew and rot, as well as damage from insects like termites and carpenter ants. Regular painting protects the exterior which reduces degradation and further maintenance costs.
If you have a building built in 1976 or before, it likely has lead paint in it and is subject to the EPA’s Toxic substances Control Act which requires facilities to repaint at certain intervals and remove lead paint during renovations.
Maintain Market Value
Businesses change. If you outgrow your facility, there may come a time when you want to sell and move into a different facility. Keeping your facility property painted throughout its life protects it from damage and a fresh coat of paint can help the facility command a much higher market value.
