Maintain Paint Job 2023

A building’s first impression says a lot to customers. In most cases, its paint does the talking.

But, the purpose of paint actually goes beyond aesthetics. Paint acts as a layer that helps protect your building from weather, pests, and water seepage. 

To keep your building’s exterior paint in the best possible condition, both regular and annual maintenance is necessary. It might sound like a lot, but there’s good news. Not only can this maintenance improve your property’s appearance, it can also increase its value as well.

5 Ways To Maintain Your Commercial Building’s Exterior Paint

Besides periodically checking on your building’s paint, there are a few other things you can do to help maintain your commercial property’s exterior paint.

Keep your building’s exterior in tip-top shape with these tips:

Regularly check your property

You can identify potential issues by doing a walk-through inspection every few months. You don’t have to make it too thorough, but you should pay attention to areas prone to issues. Routine walk-throughs like these can help you to catch damage early on and to avoid expensive emergency repairs in the future.

Keep an eye out for mold

Mold can be harmful to both your health and your commercial property. Prevent mold growth with waterproofing. Besides protecting the interior of your building from moisture intrusion, waterproofing can also make its concrete more durable, reducing the need for costly concrete repairs from potential mold damage. 

Inspect caulking annually

High temperatures can cause the caulking in your building to swell and contract. Over time, water may leak through and cause damage. Keep an eye out for cracks and crevices that may let moisture in and repair them as soon as possible.

Keep greenery trimmed and away from your building 

The condensation from plants and foliage that touch your building’s exterior can cause paint to peel off and, eventually, the wood beneath it to rot. Prevent this by regularly trimming surrounding trees, bushes, and any other greenery. 

Make repairs as soon as possible

Sometimes it’s easier to put off small repairs that don’t seem to be a big deal. But, the sooner you address them, the better your chances of preventing further damage are. Putting off these small repairs can end up being more expensive in the long run, especially if they get worse or cause damage to other parts of your property.
