By having an interior and exterior commercial building which is in tip-top condition, you will soon start to notice clients, customers and visitors begin to visit a lot more. Whether they’re spending money or coming to visit, you want to provide people with a long-lasting impression!

Maintaining the exterior of your commercial property is so much more important than you may think, read on as we discuss why.

Why does my commercial building need maintaining?

There are a range of different areas of your commercial property that you will regularly need to maintain such as entrance doors, curtain walling, floor coatings, roof sheet coating and shop fronts.

All of the above can experience damage and deterioration over time from weather and people.

Entrance doors

Entrance doors are one of the first things your clients or consumers are going to see when it comes to your commercial property. You most definitely do not want to leave them with a bad impression due to the state of your entrance doors, so it is imperative you stay on top of maintenance as it allows customers to see that you take your brand image seriously.

Your brand needs to leave each customer, whether they are new or existing, with a lasting impression. More importantly, you would rather it be a good impression rather than a bad one. Entrance doors are a part of your commercial building that are used day in day out and at regular points in the day, which means they are more likely than not going to have a significant amount of wear and tear. Unfortunately, when a vast amount of people walk through the entrance doors, they may cause damage without realising. Therefore, by keeping on top of maintenance including a regular repair and respray, your entrance doors consistently look brand new.

If you have recently moved into a new commercial property, then you may also want to think about changing the colour or effect of your entrance doors. We often end up changing the entrance door to match the unique colours of the brand.

Curtain walling

The British weather can have a significant effect on the look and aesthetic of your curtain walling. Varying weather conditions such as rain and sunshine can make your commercial property look outdated and tired at a quicker rate. One of the best ways of getting your commercial building in tip-top condition is by having curtain walling spraying services. With regular maintenance, you will see the dramatic effect it can have on your business. If you are thinking of rebranding or are looking for a simple change, curtain walling isn’t only good for maintenance but also for colour changing purposes.

Here at Advanced Refurbishment, we have worked across a number of industries including supermarkets, standalone businesses, car dealerships and commercial properties. After completing projects on their curtain walling, including repair and resprays, or a new colour match, each industry has seen a significant increase in their footfall. Some have even had customers say how beautiful the building looks.

Floor coatings

If your commercial property experiences a high volume of footfall, one of the most affected areas is going to be the floor coatings, which often wear down over time. Floor coatings are one of the many coatings people tend to forget about, but how unattractive can flooring be when there is worn flooring with huge patches of colours missing? Floor coating services are brilliant as you do not necessarily have to have the whole floor coated, only the sections that really need doing.

Alternatively, floor coatings can also add an extra touch of sophistication to your commercial property. Rendering is a great way of giving your flooring a sharp but shiny finish.

Facade

Give your commercial property an edge against the rest of your competitors through simply adding a facade. You can choose from a range of colours which match your brand, or it can be a more subtle change, both will help spruce up your business. Regular facade spraying services are a great way of improving the overall look and aesthetic of your commercial building. It can also help increase the lifespan of your commercial property which means you do not have to spend so much on maintenance.

A facade can completely change the way your commercial property looks, so depending on what your business is, and what services/products you provide, you may want to consider sprucing up your building with a glass, brick, or even cladding facade.

Shop front coatings

Ensuring your shop front is appealing to potential customers and existing customers is an essential part of grabbing their attention. It is also a great way for your business to stand out in comparison to other stores, especially if you are based on a high street or in a shopping centre. Many shoppers will make a judgement on your store based on the appearance of its exterior. Therefore it is imperative you keep on top of shop front spraying.

If you are thinking about having your storefront sprayed, we recommend maintenance every ten years to ensure the colour and finish stays immaculate. If you are a high street store located outside, your storefront will be more prone to weathering compared to those found in a shopping centre. Weathering can have a significant effect on the appearance of your storefront. Becoming a victim of weathering can be a nightmare, it means your store is more likely going to experience vast amounts of fading and even potential damage to exterior cladding panels.

Roof Sheet coating

The roof on your commercial property is one of the biggest areas which is highly exposed to natural elements. Unfortunately, due to being so exposed to our English weather, roofing is prone to deterioration and corrosion if not treated or maintained adequately. Roof coatings are a fantastic way of ensuring your commercial property is safe, it also gives it a new lease of life as it increases the overall lifespan of roofing.

The formula used in roof coatings such as Giromax and Girosil helps to protect the panels or metal against quick erosion. You will want to stay on top of maintenance often, as without it your commercial property is exposed and can experience leaking or an increased amount of mould. Roof coatings are not only limited to metal, there are a number of other roof coating systems which they can be applied to, such as Asbestos roof, Cement Fibre roof, Cladding roofs and Asphalt roofs.

Dilapidation services

When you first move into a commercial property, it can sometimes require a vast amount of work to get it into the condition you want. Dilapidation services are a great way of ensuring your commercial property is in the best possible condition.

By booking your commercial property in with a contractor who can carry out dilapidation work or cladding panel repair, it takes all the stress away from you. It means one person will do all the work to get your commercial property ready from management through to getting all of the work completed on time.

Cut Edge Corrosion

Make sure you stay on top of cut edge corrosion, as the British weather can take its toll on cladding panels. Over time cut edge corrosion can become significantly worse, so it is imperative that you book it in with a specialist contractor as soon as you notice it. If left, not only does it look unsightly, but it can also cause more damage then you think. Without maintenance, you could be looking at full cladding panel replacement which can be extremely costly.

Cut edge corrosion treatments are much more cost effective as not only do they improve the look of your cladding panels but they also increase the life span. Making the panels much more durable, therefore replacement will not be needed for a very long time.
