How Often Should a Commercial Building Painted?

If it has been a while since you had your commercial building painted, you may want to consider updating it with a fresh coat of paint. A simple change from a fading, old coat to a brighter shade can give your premises a new look and even attract more customers. Particularly, if the interior or exterior of the facility is peeling or chipped, you should repaint your building as soon as possible to keep a good impression.

As a general rule, you need to repaint your commercial property after five years to look appealing and well-maintained. In fact, painting experts from Grand Painting & Building Maintenance PTY LTD recommend that you do it every three years to keep the building in top condition and aesthetically appealing.

However, there are instances when you don’t have to wait for the regular schedule to paint your commercial property. This is especially if the paint coat starts to show signs of deterioration. The signs include but are not limited to;

Visible mildew and mould

The primary reason for painting your building is to protect it from harmful weather elements, such as moisture. The presence of mould or mildew on the walls of your commercial building is a clear indicator that moisture has started to take its toll on the paint coat.

Mould and mildew are often associated with a foul smell; hence if you do not act swiftly, the place may become unhabitable. However, painting your facility afresh can restore its magnificence.

Blistering and Bubbling Paint(Commercial Building Paint)

Blistering and bubbling of exterior paint indicate reduced adhesion beneath the surface. This can be attributed to various factors such as:

  • Extreme weather changes
  • Exposure to UV rays
  • Trapped moisture and other contaminants.
  • Mould or mildew growth under the paint

To correct the bubble texture, you need to invite a professional painting company like Grand Painting to assess the property and advise on the best remedy and painting products to use.

Damage from Pressure Washing

Most businesses hire commercial cleaners to clean their office exteriors, which is convenient and cost-effective. However, the pressure washing method they use could do more harm than good to the walls of the building in the long run.

Water under pressure can erode the paint and subsequently penetrate the walls. In such cases, you need to repaint your walls immediately. Also, you may consider using more paint-friendly methods to clean your office’s exterior walls.
