Painting Commercial Buildings in Calgary Properly

Calgary is home to a variety of businesses. We have tall skyscrapers and small mom-and-pop-shops, all of which require exterior painting from time to time. It is important to make sure that you are properly painting the exterior of your Calgary building to ensure you maintain a professional image. One of Calgary’s most experienced painting contractors, Roller Coater, is sharing some tips on how to correctly paint your commercial building. Read on to learn more about this process.

First, you are going to require the necessary tools to complete the job. Some of these tools include; lift equipment, paint sprayers, power washers, paint primer, paint and painter’s tape. The composition of your building will dictate the type of paint needed. For instance, concrete buildings require a concrete paint due to its porous surface. Then you will need to verify that all of the business legalities are in place. If you haven’t already, you will need to obtain personal injury, worker’s compensation and property damage insurance. It is better to be safe than sorry.

Next, you need to begin by cleaning the exterior of the building. Cleaning and removing built-up debris will allow the new paint to stick. The best way to accomplish this is with your power washer. Once you’ve washed the exterior, it is now time to cover all items that you want protected from paint. Using your painter’s tape, you can line windows and doors to avoid drips and paint splashes.

Then, using the paint sprayers, place a coat of primer onto the entire exterior. The primer will seal the walls and also provide a smooth surface for the paint to go on. Once the primer is completely dry, you can now apply the paint with the paint sprayers. Starting at the top of the building and working your way down with smooth back and forth motions is the most efficient method.

Lastly, allow your paint job to fully dry and then you can enjoy the transformation. Commercial painting in Calgary isn’t difficult but it does require some pre-planning and organization.
