One of the most important aspects of running a successful business is sustaining a professional appearance. To customers, clients, tenants and potential partners, a well-maintained facility is more than just a clean workspace, it represents your company brand. It demonstrates that you, as a property manager, are attentive, organized and take your work seriously. One of the easiest and most efficient ways to maintain a well-kept image is by keeping painted surfaces looking fresh, current and clean.

It is common to delay painting projects out of fear of having to cease production while a space is painted.  Fortunately, painting is no longer restricted to working summer months, when an office can be cleared and aired out. Professional contractors know that time is money, and having workers out of the office is bad for business. More advanced, low or no VOC (Volatile Organic Compounds) painting products have made it much easier to get a job done without any time on the clock being lost. New, low odor, paint will not disrupt the working environment and not leave a foul residual paint smell in the space.

Although it may be dark and cold outside, a lively common area can keep occupants in good spirits. A new coat of paint can increase productivity and create an atmosphere of comfort and warmth. Accent walls can be created to introduce bold colors. Two tone dado walls can help prevent lower sheetrock or concrete walls from showing signs of dirt. Dry erase paint for accent walls and conference rooms will also help combat winter sluggishness. Then when the weather thaws, a facility can look brand-new after a professional interior paint job.

Additionally, contrary to popular belief, you can actually get the best value by painting your interior office spaces during the winter months. Painting contractors often have more time on their hands during the winter due to lulls in exterior jobs and can often have a facility looking fresh for spring quickly and at a lower cost.

Whether a building needs a complete image revamp or simply needs some maintenance touch-up painting, contacting a local painting contractor over the winter is a better bet than competing with the summer heat. Interior, common area, hallway painting companies and businesses that provide warehouse ceiling deck spray painting, epoxy floor painting, wallcovering services and like services will be able to give more attention to an interior paint job during these cold months, as the weather can be too harsh for some exterior applications.
