If you have your own business and need a building, purchasing an older building can save you money. You may need to do some repair work, however. Some of this repair work includes the outside of the building. To help you, below are two tips to get the building looking great for your opening day.
Hire a Commercial Painter
If the paint looks bad on the building, repainting is a must. Instead of doing this on your own, hire a commercial painter. This professional has the right equipment to allow them to do the job much better and more quickly than you could do on your own. Commercial painters have sprayers to use for large surface areas. This allows them to quickly paint the outside walls.
A commercial painter can help you decide the right type of paint to use and help you choose the best color for your building. Because you have a business, you should choose a subdued color, such as white, tan, or brown. If you want to stand out, however, you could go with a brighter color. Just choose a color that goes well with the type of business you have.
A commercial painter also means the end result will look professional. This is mainly because they use professional equipment. It looks much better for your company when a client drives up and sees a professionally painted building.
Hire a Landscape Contractor
When the commercial painter is finished and the paint is dry, hire a landscape contractor to do your landscaping for you. Just like your building, your landscaping is important for the aesthetics of your building.
The landscape contractor can plant flowers in front of your building. One type of flower that is often used at commercial buildings is the daylily. These flowers are perennials, which means they come back on their own each year and they bloom in the spring through the end of the summer. There are other options available, such as petunias, coneflowers, daisies, and more.
The landscape contractor can also plant bushes in front of your building. You may only want greenery, or you could choose bushes that have flowers on them. The landscape contractor can also do hardscaping, which is installing something like a retaining wall, statue, fountain, benches, etc.
