Commercial Painting

Commercial Paint Performance Features

  • Improved Appearance
  • Surface Restoration
  • Build Customer Confidence
  • Protect Surfaces
  • Improve Longevity

Commercial painting offers a wide range of benefits for property and business owners. The improved appearance of an office or retail store can help attract more customers and clients. A well maintained property is much more welcoming than a property with chipping and peeling paint, and will create a cleaner atmosphere for future clients and customers. In addition to improving customer and client confidence, commercial painting can protect the surface of a building’s exterior. Constant exposure to sunlight and weather can have damaging effects on structural material. By coating the exterior with UV resistant and weather combatant paint, the longevity of the facility can improve due to commercial painting.

Commercial Paint Performance Features

  • Masonry Coating
  • Metal Coating
  • UV Resistant
  • Submergible Paint
  • UV Resistant
  • High Strength and Impervious

Sometimes, a company’s credibility can rest on the impression of an office building. And a well maintained office building will build more client confidence than a building with peeling paint or corroded surfaces. Brick and Masonry are very porous, and can create a challenge for painters trying to seal the surface. Masonry coating is a great commercial paint product that seals masonry, and prevents pin holes from forming. If too many pin holes form, then moisture and air can seep through the surface, and create moisture pressure underneath the paint. This pressure then causes paint failure, and causes paint to peel. Additionally, many commercial grade paints are designed to adhere to metal, helping protect it from UV sunlight and harsh weather that can cause corrosion.


Commercial Coating Performance Features

  • Interior Painting
  • Facade Preservations
  • Detailed Architecture
  • Difficult To Reach Areas

Churches can present some of the world’s most beautiful architecture. But although aesthetically pleasing, maintenance can often become a challenge, due to intricate detail, and difficult access points. An experienced commercial painter will recognize these challenges, and install a paint system that can withstand the environment, and uphold its appearance through time. Interior coating of a church proves difficult because of their vaulted ceilings. Acrylic paints are typically the best performers because of their great adhesion, and their low odor.


  • Improved Appearance
  • Long Lasting
  • Protect Building’s Surfaces
  • Great For Masonry
  • Superior Adhesion

Guests can often be very critical. They typically expect a well maintained atmosphere, and a fresh coat of commercial paint can often do just enough to fulfill their expectations. Interior surfaces can go through a lot of wear and tear due to the high traffic in the environment. Therefore, a painter will want to select a paint that has great adhesion, can handle frequent washing, and not emit a strong odor. Water based paints are a great solution for interior commercial painting jobs. The holdup great over time, and can even be washed if they get stained. They have practically no odor, so shut down doesn’t have to occur throughout the entire building due to noxious odors. And water based paints have an excellent adhesion, so peeling and failure are unlikely to occur as long as the surface is adequately prepared.

Schools & Universities

  • High Traffic Tolerant
  • Sporting Complexes
  • Solvent/Odor Free
  • Cinder Block/Brick Coatings
  • Gymnasiums

Schools and universities are subject to heavy traffic. Walls can frequently get bumped, scraped, handled, touched, and smeared with contaminants. These conditions can lead to paint failures, or can stain the surface of a top coat. In these situations, a water based epoxy paint can be a good solution. Epoxy paint is durable and can handle abrasion, tolerating the heavy traffic school environments are often subject too. Although durable, epoxy paints will eventually amber. So if color retention is a preferred result, then a commercial painter will select an acrylic paint. Acrylic paints are water based, so they don’t emit harsh odors. But acrylic paints can retain color over time, and still handle a good scrubbing from soap and water if they need to be cleaned. Masonry is a common material used to construct commercial buildings found on campuses. Although sturdy and solid for construction, brick and masonry creates a commercial painting challenge because of its porous surface. Masonry paint is a commercial grade paint that can be applied very heavily on surfaces. This heavy application will fill in the holes, preventing ‘pin holing’. Pin holing creates an access point for moisture and other contaminants that can lead to paint failure.


  • Sanitary
  • Easy To Clean
  • Solvent/Odor Free

Hospitals undergo a lot of cleaning, in order to upkeep its sanitation. Sanitary coatings can be applied to help discourage the growth of bacteria or viruses, and help sustain a clean environment. Prior to application, it is important that these specialty paints adhere properly to the surface. If the paint fails, then there it is more likely that these locations can harbor bacterial and viral growth. Due to the residency involved with hospitals, low-odor paints need to be applied. Most water based paints are odor free, making them ideal solutions for commercial painters.
