How painting can improve your business’s bottom line

8th April 2022

You were probably taught to never ‘judge a book by its cover’, but in a competitive commercial world, a positive first impression is more important than ever.

You may have optimised your branding and created the perfect website, but you might not have stopped to think how your physical environment reflects your business.

If it’s not up to scratch, your commercial space can be a real turn-off for a prospective customer, client, visitor or new employee.

Do you really want people thinking that you don’t care enough to maintain your building?

Office buildings, medical and education establishments, retail stores, restaurants and commercial spaces need to be well maintained to project an appearance of professionalism, hospitality and modernity. 

The aesthetic appeal of your premises reflects directly how people view your company.

Do you really want their first impression to be a negative one?

The benefits of painting your commercial premises

Besides the aesthetic improvement that it offers, repainting your business could be good for your bottom line.

Compared to other renovations or upgrades, painting is one of the most cost-effective projects you can implement, because its benefits quickly exceed the cost of expert painting contractors like GME.

Let’s look at some of the ways painting your commercial property can help your balance sheet…

Improves your curb appeal

A freshly painted building is much more attractive than one with a fading or flaking exterior.

Clients or visitors are more likely to do business with a company that cares about their building’s appearance.

If your exterior is neglected, it’s projecting a negative message.

Painting boosts productivity and sales

Your employees’ productivity obviously affects your bottom line. If your team is working in a building where the paint is drab, old and dull, it’s likely to affect their morale.

People react better to clean and tidy environments, and a freshly painted exterior or interior can generate plenty of positivity and boost productivity.

Painting protects your investment

Your commercial building needs to be maintained in order to keep it functioning properly. If the exterior paint is flaking or peeling, the structure beneath it is left exposed and its lifespan will be reduced as a result.

All paint deteriorates over time. A building that’s well-prepped and painted with high-quality coatings will last longer before repainting is needed, but it will be necessary eventually.

When paint starts fading or cracking, it needs to be addressed quickly or the fabric of the building could be damaged.

Painting shows that you care

You might offer the best products or services in your sector, but you always need paying customers to achieve success.

And if you don’t care enough to work from a well-maintained building, they may think that carelessness spills over into your product or service and opt for a competitor instead.

All of these elements contribute to your company’s bottom line by attracting and keeping more clients and customers, improving team morale and productivity and keeping your buildings in good shape to last longer.
