3 Tips for Revamping the Exterior of your Commercial Building
Want to give clients and guests to your business a good first impression? Consider exterior building restoration to boost the property’s appearance. The way your commercial building appears reflects how you conduct business. Making sure the property is clean and tidy goes a long way to earn respect and trust from your clients. In fact, renovating the building’s exterior can have a significant effect on your bottom line. Whether it’s just replacing the exterior cladding or giving the walls a fresh coat of paint, you’ll enhance the curb appeal and value of your property.
Below are three simple steps that you can take to improve the look and functionality of your commercial building’s exterior.
Replacing The Siding
When the siding is cracked or dented, not only do you risk exposing your property to water damage but also steals from the beauty of the building’s exterior. Repairing siding will help you save thousands of dollars in repairs. You need to watch out for signs of water damage in your building’s interior such as peeling paint which indicates there are moisture issues that need to be resolved. Spaces such as cracks and holes on the property’s exterior can compromise on air tightness causing you to experience heat loss and spend more on heating and cooling costs. If you wait too long to repair such cracks and looseness, you expose the property to further damage. Invest in new siding that will improve the exterior look of your commercial building and make sure it lives up to its expectation.
Wall Cladding – Exterior Building Restoration
Recladding the exterior wall is also a great idea to improve the overall look and extend the lifespan of your property. By recladding with brick and stone veneer, you help to enhance the property’s structure and prevent damage from the elements such as wind, sun exposure, snow and ice. Staying with the old and damaged wall siding will eventually lead to problems like leaks, rot and mold, which can become too costly to repair. Don’t just paint and seal the wall, work on the underlying issue by recladding so that you get rid of the major cracks and patches and also install proper sealing to protect the structure.
Invest In A Durable & Easy To Maintain Exterior Finish
Consider investing in EIFS (Exterior Insulation Finishing System) to improve efficiency and the overall look of your property’s exterior. This modern finishing system is fire resistant, can withstand earthquakes and comes in a wide range of designs and colors. It may cost more than the ordinary finishing systems but it comes with longer value addition with minimal maintenance. Most builders nowadays use EIFS because it offers enhanced water resistance and also powerful insulation properties. You are rest assured that your property’s exterior will remain appealing and durable for years to come after using this finishing system. Talk to your contractor regarding the underlying issues in your building’s exterior, how to fix them and prevent similar problems from arising anytime soon. Act fast before you experience exterior problems that are too costly to repair or replace.
