The Perfect Paint Refresh For A Commercial Property

The most important aspects you’ll want to nail for a top finish.


Painting a commercial property is a big project that requires careful planning, proper preparation, and attention to detail. Whether you’re repainting an existing building or preparing a new one for its grand opening, a great finish is essential to ensure that your property looks its best. In this blog, we’ll go over the most important aspects of painting a commercial property and how we believe these help to create a great finish.



The first and most important step in painting a commercial property is preparation. This includes cleaning and repairing any damage to the walls and surfaces, sanding rough spots, and priming the surfaces. Proper preparation is essential to ensure that the paint adheres well and lasts as long as possible. If you’re working with an older building, you may need to remove old paint and any loose or flaking material before starting. You may also need to repair any cracks or holes in the walls and surfaces, as these can cause the paint to chip or peel. 


Colour Selection

One of the most critical aspects of painting a commercial property is selecting the right colours. The colours you choose will play a big role in creating the mood and atmosphere of your building, so it’s essential to choose colours that match your brand and the overall style of your property. When selecting colours, it’s best to use colour swatches or samples to get a better idea of how the colours will look once they are applied, prior to commencing the painting project. 


Quality of Paint and Materials

Using the right quality of paint and materials is essential for a great finish. Personally at Star Painters, we always choose Dulux as we believe it gives the best, longest lasting finish. Choosing low-quality paint can result in chipping, peeling, and fading over time, which can make your building look worn and unattractive.

When choosing paint, it’s important to consider the type of surface you will be painting and the conditions the surface will be exposed to, such as heat, moisture, and sunlight. For those living in cooler, wetter climates such as the Adelaide Hills, you may require a heavier duty paint to withstand the higher rain fall and damper conditions. By knowing your climate and its conditions, it will help you choose the right type of paint for your needs. Additionally, investing in good quality brushes, rollers, and other painting tools will ensure that your paint is applied evenly and without streaks.

Techniques and Skills

Painting a commercial property requires a certain level of expertise and skill. Applying paint evenly and without streaks takes practice and patience, so it’s essential to choose a professional painter who has the experience and skills necessary to get the job done right. Professional painters also have access to specialised tools and techniques that can help them achieve a great finish, such as spray painting and airless spraying. Additionally, they will have the knowledge and experience to choose the right type of paint and materials for your specific needs.



Finally, it’s important to remember that painting a commercial property is an ongoing process, and proper maintenance is essential to keep it looking great over time. This includes regular cleaning and touch-ups, as well as regular inspections to identify and address any damage or wear and tear. Additionally, you may want to consider repainting your property every few years to keep it looking fresh and new.


To Conclude

In conclusion, painting a commercial property requires careful preparation, attention to detail, and the right materials and techniques. Whether you’re painting an existing building or preparing a new one for your businesses grand opening, a great finish is essential to ensure that your property looks its best. By following these tips and working with a professional painter, you can create a beautiful and long-lasting finish that will help your property stand out and make a great impression on your customers and clients.
