So, When is it Best to Paint Your Commercial Property?

A com­mer­cial exte­ri­or paint­ing project requires exten­sive plan­ning to ensure the job is com­plet­ed in a time­ly man­ner with a min­i­mum of unex­pect­ed delays. You want qual­i­ty, pro­fes­sion­al work that will not only add to the appear­ance of the build­ing but last for the expect­ed length of time with no prob­lems. Tem­per­a­ture is also a crit­i­cal fac­tor for out­side paint to dry and adhere to the sur­face prop­er­ly.

Most experts agree that a min­i­mum tem­per­a­ture for exte­ri­or paint­ing of 50 degrees Fahren­heit is best for long last­ing results. In many por­tions of the US, the tem­per­a­ture may fall below this range in the fall and win­ter months. Start­ing a project at this time may cause undo stress to fin­ish the job in a hur­ry which can lead to mis­takes. This may not appear imme­di­ate­ly, but cause prob­lems in the future. A far bet­ter sce­nario is to begin an out­side paint­ing project dur­ing the spring, allow­ing plen­ty of time for decent weath­er. Here are a few con­sid­er­a­tions:

Time to Pre­pare — Sched­ul­ing a spring project allows the time to con­sid­er all the details with mem­bers of your orga­ni­za­tion. Fac­tors such as bud­get, time­line and the scope of the job can be care­ful­ly con­sid­ered to avoid last minute sur­pris­es. Make an inspec­tion of the prop­er­ty and make note of oth­er relat­ed repairs that will need to be done to com­plete the project. Repairs may include any wood need­ing replace­ment, caulk­ing, and pres­sure wash­ing sur­faces. Being pre­pared is a great time saver dur­ing the actu­al paint­ing project.

Dis­cuss Your Plans — After your orga­ni­za­tion has reached a deci­sion regard­ing all the fac­tors men­tioned, it’s time to bring your plans to a licensed pro­fes­sion­al and dis­cuss options. A local con­trac­tor will know what paint and mate­ri­als work well in your part of the coun­try. Any prob­lems that are unique to your spe­cif­ic area can be worked out in advance of the start­ing date. This is the time to choose the col­or scheme, whether you like the exist­ing appear­ance of the prop­er­ty, and if you would like to make changes. The deci­sion process may take a lit­tle time. Start­ing to pre­pare ear­ly gives you the extra time need­ed.

Con­sid­er­a­tions for a Com­mer­cial Prop­er­ty — There are spe­cial con­sid­er­a­tions for a com­mer­cial prop­er­ty that you will want to keep in mind while plan­ning the project. Dur­ing warmer months, any impact on park­ing can be han­dled more effec­tive­ly. Dai­ly pedes­tri­an trav­el to and from the build­ing will not be affect­ed to the same degree as in cold­er sea­sons. If a prob­lem requir­ing a larg­er repair is found, the added time is much eas­i­er to accom­mo­date with­out wor­ry­ing about a future cold spell ruin­ing work that is already done. A fresh coat of paint can dra­mat­i­cal­ly improve the curb appeal of any com­mer­cial prop­er­ty. Start­ing your project at the prop­er time of year will ensure the upgrade lasts a long time to the ben­e­fit of your orga­ni­za­tion.
