Sometimes it Cannot Wait

Exte­ri­or com­mer­cial real estate paint­ing has cer­tain chal­lenges unique to the nature of an occu­pied loca­tion. There nev­er seems to be a per­fect time to do this type of project. How­ev­er, neglect­ing the task may even­tu­al­ly lead to water intru­sion or oth­er cost­ly repairs. Health prob­lems may devel­op if a mold con­di­tion goes unno­ticed for a peri­od of time. If your rou­tine inspec­tion indi­cates that it is time for exte­ri­or paint­ing, it would be far more cost effec­tive to sched­ule the project as soon as pos­si­ble.

Here are sev­er­al tips on how to do exte­ri­or paint­ing while caus­ing the least amount of dis­rup­tion to ten­ants:

  • Advanced Plan­ning— Every prop­er­ty has busy areas that need spe­cial atten­tion dur­ing this type of project. Restric­tions that lim­it access to walk­ing paths and park­ing areas may be nec­es­sary. Cer­tain entrances may be tem­porar­i­ly blocked dur­ing repairs. Dis­cuss these prob­lem areas with your paint­ing con­trac­tor. An expe­ri­enced pro­fes­sion­al will know how to min­i­mize the effect on ten­ants. Per­haps, the task can be accom­plished dur­ing a slow­er part of the day when there is the least amount of ten­ant activ­i­ty. Giv­ing every­one advanced notice of the nec­es­sary work can go a long way to reduce stress dur­ing the project. Peo­ple like to be warned of closed entrances and detours. You can advise your con­trac­tor of the poten­tial “hotspots” and they can draw on past expe­ri­ences to help deal with these con­cerns.
  • Dur­ing the Project — While the project is in progress, clear notices post­ed to warn ten­ants of wet paint or closed door­ways will help to relieve ten­sion. The main office entrance should be kept clear. This is where new ten­ants enter and get their first impres­sion of the facil­i­ty. Cur­rent ten­ants may enter here on busi­ness or to make a rent pay­ment. Paint­ing near the office is best done dur­ing non-work hours when few peo­ple will be in this area. A painter with com­mer­cial expe­ri­ence is the ide­al can­di­date for the project. There can always be unex­pect­ed expens­es dur­ing a paint­ing project, but an expe­ri­enced paint­ing com­pa­ny can give you a more accu­rate esti­mate of the actu­al cost and will com­plete the job in a time­ly man­ner
  • Ben­e­fits — Your ten­ants will enjoy the fresh­ly paint­ed facil­i­ty when the project is com­plete. Most will be hap­py to see the repairs and paint­ing being done. Stress the final result to any­one with con­cerns and inform the ten­ants that you will be hap­py to voice any con­cerns to the con­trac­tor dur­ing the project. Prospec­tive ten­ants will see that prop­er main­te­nance is a con­cern at your facil­i­ty. Exte­ri­or com­mer­cial real estate paint­ing does not need to be a stress­ful time with prop­er plan­ning and a pro­fes­sion­al paint­ing con­trac­tor.
