Summer and the long periods of warm, dry weather are the perfect time to recoat the window frames of your office building, to improve the overall appearance and breathe new life into otherwise tired aesthetics.
The exterior of your building is often the first impression that new clients and customers have of your business. Based on this it is imperative to ensure that this impression is the best it can possibly be. The positive effects of a good looking and orderly exterior extend beyond the sentiments of you customers, research has shown that a tidy and aesthetically pleasing workplace increases productivity for employees.
Over time the paint on an office building’s window frames can be chipped, flaky and even faded, leaving a scruffy appearance. However the negative impact of this process is not purely aesthetic. Paint coatings protect the window frame’s structural metalwork from damage in the form of rust and if left unchecked can result in water entering the building. Recoating window frames can increase the metalwork’s lifespan by years, as it replaces the waterproof coating and protects the metalwork from further damage.
Even if the coating has not become compromised, recoating office windows can be an effective way of getting your building’s appearance in line with that of your brand. When selecting a colour for you office’s window frames it is important to ensure that it does not clash with the colours of the building’s other features, such as exterior metalwork and doorframes. A building which has an integrated appearance can only have a positive impact on your business.
All too often businesses put off recoating their office window frames due to the perceived costs, both financial and in terms of time. A common misconception is that in order for office window frames to be recoated the premises will have to be closed resulting in a loss of income. This is incorrect, most office window recoating projects can be completed in-situ, usually outside of the buildings operational hours.
When it comes to the financial cost, recoating office windows incurs a surprisingly small financial cost. This is due to the low cost of required materials and the fact that projects are usually completed in a matter of hours.
