Commercial Interior Painting Tips
- Selecting the right color
When it comes to commercial interior paint, the choice of the right color is crucial. A well-maintained commercial property interior will give the impression that you are dedicated to your client, residents, and employees. The brand’s identity and values can be reinforced by a careful selection of colors.
A neutral color scheme could be used for interiors in multi-unit office buildings and businesses such as law offices. However, beauty salons and similar businesses may benefit from a bolder color palette. Most commercial painting professionals agree that it is important to not overwhelm customers. Sometimes, a single wall with bold accents is enough to make an impression.
- Preparing for the Space
Now it’s time for the preparation work.
You should clean and protect your interiors. Also, make sure you remove any decorations from walls, shelves, and other surfaces.
Protect your floors and furniture by covering them with plastic or a drop cloth. This will prevent paint drips from dripping onto the floor. A good idea is to tape floor edges with painter’s tape since it can be difficult to clean. You can improve the paint’s durability by washing it with water and mildew stains.
- Filling all Dents & Sanding
Once everything is tidy and clean, we inspect the walls for any dents or bumps.
A plaster or a putter knife is the Holy Grail for covering fissures. Sandpaper can be used to smoothen the surface and remove any bumps.
- Always Read a Primer
Priming can be a tedious step for residential painters. However, it is essential when it comes time to paint commercial buildings.
Primers are not only a good base for paint, but also act as a barrier between walls and new paint. Primers can prolong life expectancy and protect the integrity of new paint. Tinted primers can be used to cover bright colors. They don’t need as many coats and look neat.
Commercial Exterior Painting Tips
- Keep your exterior clean
As with commercial interior painting, pressure washing exterior commercial buildings can reduce professional painting costs.
Professional contractors should avoid painting over chalky, dirty, or dusty surfaces. This will make your exterior look rough and uneven, as well as cause the paint to not adhere as well.
- Take the weather into consideration
Commercial exterior painting is affected by weather conditions such as rain, wind, and snow. But, not only can it be unpredictable and harsh weather that can have an impact on the success of renovations.
Certain paints behave differently at different temperatures. Oil-based paints stick best to walls when temperatures are between 40deg and 90degF. Latex, on the other hand, performs well at 50deg-85degF.
- High Safety Standards
Safety standards must be met when exterior painting commercial buildings. Painters and other contractors must use safety equipment and be insured. This also applies to tenants, employees, clients, and customers. It is important to choose a non-toxic and odorless paint that poses low to no health risks to everyone.
- You should ensure that your contractor has all the required equipment
Contrary to residential painters commercial painting contractors often have all the necessary equipment. Castle Hill painters can offer advice based on years of experience with commercial buildings.
You should also check that the contractors are licensed and bonded. This will impact the safety and quality services they provide.
