At some point the paint on your commercial building will fade. It's going to look unpleasant and it will affect the business image of the property owner, tenant, or both.

You can lose out on business by not paying attention to what your building is saying about your business. "You never get a second chance to make a first impression."  That's the number one reason it is a good idea to repaint the exterior of your commercial building if it is starting to look run-down.  Listed here is a simple step-by step guide to follow that will help you avoid the pitfalls of hiring a commercial painting contractor.

3. Paint type. Once you've decided on a contractor and the painting method, it is a good idea to discuss the paint type. There are several paint types and you should make sure that the contractor you higher only use the highest quality paint, if you want the paint job to last more than a year. 

4. Paint color. Finally, the most exciting step of the painting process. Go with a color that emphasizes the qualities of your respective company. The color will not just represent you, it also represents your employees so must take that into cosideration as well. Ask your contractor about it too. He might be able to assist you in selecting the best color.  A fresh coat of paint with a good color scheme will certainly improve your business image.
