Commercial Interior Painting Tips
Although no two projects are alike, our professional team has successfully completed thousands of projects. These tips can make your painting project stand out regardless of its surface, size, or exterior.
- How to Choose the Right Color
Commercial interior painting is all about choosing the right color. Commercial properties that are well-maintained give off a sense of commitment to their residents, clients, and employees. Brand identity and values can be strengthened by careful color selection.
A neutral color scheme can work well in multi-unit offices, as well as for businesses like law firms. A bolder color palette can be beneficial for businesses such as beauty salons and retail stores. Commercial painting professionals agree on one thing. Don’t overwhelm your customers. Sometimes, one wall with a bold accent will suffice to make an impactful impression.
We’ve even produced The Definitive Color Guide for commercial projects that you can access online and get inspiration for your next project!
- Preparing the Space
Once the colors have been selected for commercial interior painting, it is time to get into the prep work.
It is essential to clean and protect the interiors.
To avoid paint drips and splashes, cover furniture with plastic. It is a smart thing to tape the floor edges with painter’s tape, as edges can be difficult to clean. The paint’s durability will be improved by pressure washing away dirt and mildew stains.

- Filling all Dents & Sanding
After everything is clean and tidy, we inspect the walls carefully and repair any dents and bumps.
Plaster and a putter knives are the best options for covering fissures. Sandpaper can be used to smoothen the surface and remove any bumps. The HEPA filters are used by Festool machines for dust control.
Once you are certain that the surface is prepared and flat, don’t forget to apply primer and a protective coating of paint.
- Always Use a Primer
Residential painters often neglect priming, but it is crucial for commercial building painting.
Primer serves two purposes: it provides a foundation for paint to adhere to and also acts as a barrier between paint and walls. It protects and extends the life of the paint. Tinted primers work well for covering bright colors as they don’t require as many coats to look neat.
Experienced professionals understand how crucial it is to prepare the surface for painting and apply primer to insure longevity.
- Take into consideration the needs of your employees
If you are unable to schedule your painting project during working hours or holidays, it is important that you consider the needs of your employees. Our team takes all safety precautions to protect our clients and our employees. However, it is important that you discuss your project with your employees and ensure they are fully informed about the scope and timeframe.
Commercial Exterior Painting Tips
Attention to detail is essential when dealing with large surfaces, specific guidelines for paint application and branded colours. These are some ways to ensure your exterior painting project is successful and attractive.
- Check that the exterior of your commercial building is clean
Pressure washing commercial buildings exteriors can be just like commercial interior painting. This will help to reduce professional painting costs.
Professional contractors will not paint over a chalky, dusty or dirty surface. It makes the exterior appear uneven and rough. The new coat of paint won’t stick as well.
A professional will clean the surface before and during painting.
- Weather is important!
The weather conditions like rain, wind and snow have a direct impact on commercial exterior painting. It is not only the weather that can impact renovations’ success, but also unpredictable and harsh.
Different types of paint react differently to different temperatures. Oil-based paint sticks best to walls at temperatures between 40°F and 90°F, while latex works best at 50°F to 85°F.
It is important to choose the right time for your painting project if you want to save money and resources. PPD will help you explore your options for future projects.
- High Safety Standards
Exterior painting of commercial buildings must comply with safety standards.
Safety equipment must be used by painters and contractors, as well as being insured. Client safety should also be considered. Choose a non-toxic, fragranceless paint that is safe for everyone.
PPD is a well-respected brand that has many happy clients. We have also won numerous awards for our safety standards and flawless execution.
- Check that the contractor has all of the necessary equipment
Commercial painting contractors are more organized than residential painters. Based on their years of experience painting commercial buildings, they can make recommendations about the best way to implement projects.
Also, make sure to verify that contractors are licensed and bonded. This can have a significant impact on the quality and safety of the services provided. Professional companies will provide all the documentation and advice necessary to meet your needs.
- All exterior branding should be crisp
Your audience expects to be on brand.
Make sure your brand colors match and that your advertising materials such as banners and logos are professionally addressed and painted.
Both your clients as well as your employees will appreciate consistency in branding.
An experienced, reliable contractor can help you understand your project’s specific requirements and advise you on how to maximize your return on investment.
