Own Your Own Business? 2 Tips To Keep The Exterior Looking Great

Posted on

The way the exterior of your business looks is just as important as the interior. If you have neglected the exterior, it is likely in need of some changes. If this is the case, follow the tips below and your customers will have a good impression of you when they walk through your door.

The Exterior Walls

Go outside and walk around your building and look at the walls. If you see dirty walls, you can use a power washer along with some cleanser to clean the walls. Using a power washer gets the job done much quicker. Spray the wall at an angle, as head-on force from the water can cause damage, especially if the wall is painted. Do not forget to rinse the cleanser off with clean, clear water when you are finished.  

If your building is painted, look for peeling paint. If you have a very small amount, you can touch the paint up. Remove the peeled paint first, put a primer over the area, and use an exterior paint. Because the area is small, you can simply brush the paint on.

If there is a lot of peeling paint, no matter if it is at the front, on the sides, or in the back, consider hiring a professional painter to repaint the entire building for you. You could even paint it a different color to give your business a big change.

Window Glass

If you have dirty windows or the glass is cracked in any places, you need to repair these things. If you have a lot of windows in your building and your building has two or more stories, hire a window washing company to clean the windows for you. They can clean both the inside and outside windows. If you only have a few windows, you can save money by cleaning them yourself.

If you have any small scratches or cracks in any of the windows, hire a commercial glass company to replace the glass for you. Cracks not only make things look bad, but small cracks and scratches can quickly turn into larger ones.  The glass company may be able to repair the scratches or cracks without having to replace the entire window to save you some money. Contact a company like Hareld Glass for more info.

These are just two things you can do to improve the look of the exterior of your building. You should also consider hiring a landscaper, who can plant flowers, trim bushes to make them uniform, and more.
