Has it been long you have painted your commercial building? Are your exterior walls showing clear signs of damage? Maybe it’s time for a repainting job!
How frequently you should consider repainting your commercial building mainly depends upon three factors-climatic conditions, quality of paint used and skills of painting contractors when hired for the initial paintwork. Extreme weather conditions such as rain, humidity and moisture in air cause deterioration of the exterior paint film and give you recurring trouble of peeling or flaky paint.
Commercial building is the face of your business and hence, you can’t afford your building look unsightly to clients or vendors. Knowing when to hire professional painters for a repainting job is important to maintain the visual appeal and value of your property. However, most business owners fail to identify the telltale symptoms of paint failure and that’s why we have come up with this blog.
Discolouration or Fading Paint
Faded paint is often considered as a cosmetic issue confronted by most business owners. Although gradual discolouration of paint colours happens due to many reasons such as inferior paint quality or inadequate paint used at the initial phase; however, it results in premature degradation of paint.
If you notice a gradual discolouration or the paint film has accumulated layers of dust, you can easily expect that it can no longer provide the protection that is required. If this is the scenario, consider repainting your commercial building at the earliest.
Growth of Mould/Mildews
Did you recently come across some black, greyish or greenish patches at wall corners, crevices or underneath eaves? In most cases, blackish spots and discolouration on the surface walls indicate signs of mould growth.
Excessive moisture in air or improper air circulation often leads to the formation of mildews and cause blisters in paint. Besides affecting paint, mould with high moisture content can affect the structural integrity of the building and lead to potential health hazards. So whenever you notice any such traces, do not delay to hire Sydney commercial painting services to get a repainting job done at the earliest.
Blisters in Paint
Over time, you might come across bubbles in the paint film which indicates nothing but loss of adhesion. This is a clear indication that the initial paintwork was done on a hot and humid day when the paint film was directly exposed to sunlight, thereby has loosened its adhesive power.
There is also a possibility that the weather was foggy at the time when painting was done, which is why moisture has penetrated inside the film, making it lose its adhesive power. Whatever be the case, if you encounter this problem, it’s better to seek help from commercial painters in Sydney who can help you get the painting job done right this time.
Cracks in Paint/Peeling Paint
Cracks in paint are another symptom of paint failure. A few lines of cracks in paint can lead to patterned cracking and weaken the structural integrity of the building. If not treated on time, these lines of cracks can extend further and cause additional issues of peeling paint. Once this happens, your commercial building becomes vulnerable to pest infestations, leakage or termites attack and give you recurring chores.
Moisture, tiny little critters and fungi easily find their way through cracks and gaps and cause severe structural problems. To minimise structural damages to your commercial property, it’s better to hire professional painting services in Sydney who can address these issues and apply a fresh coat of paint to your walls.
