Curb appeal is most commonly associated with homes because it makes prospective homebuyers stop and take a look. Therefore, it is generally considered an important part of selling a home quickly and getting a higher asking price. In home sales, improving curb appeal shows the greatest return on investment of anything homesellers can do.

With commercial businesses, curb appeal is also important. When your facility looks old, tired, or rundown, it looks unappealing. It can create a negative impression in the minds of your customers and employees. It can prevent customers from coming into your facility or doing business with you. It can stop potential tenants from moving in or even touring your building.

You have a significant investment in your building. Commercial painting and decorating play a big part in protecting your facility. A quality paint job will help protect your property from moisture and reduce mold, mildew, cracks, peeling, and wood rot. Sealing and painting your property also helps keep insects out.

Buildings can take a beating in Arizona weather. From the blazing sun to windstorms to torrential rains, you need commercial painting that will hold up under harsh conditions. The commercial painting and decorating experts at Ghaster Painting & Coatings have more than 45 years of experience handling some of the biggest and toughest commercial and industrial painting jobs in Arizona and much of the Southwest.

Fresh, high-quality paint and weatherization will keep your building looking beautiful so you can keep it occupied and generating revenue.

Better Paint Creates a Better Finish

At Ghaster Painting & Coatings, we use only top-quality painting, sealing, and weatherization products. That is because high-quality products produce a better finish and last longer.

Better-quality paint has more pigment and resin and lower solvents. While cheaper paint may look the same in the can, it will not last as long on your building. Even in a coating with the same thickness, as the solvents evaporate, a high-quality paint will leave a thicker and tougher layer that will last longer and be more durable.

With low-quality paint, you may have to use more coats, which can increase the cost. And, you will likely have to repaint more often. It will cost you more in the long run.

The pigments used in the paint also play a role in your building’s curb appeal. Lower-quality paints tend to use less expensive pigments, such as clay, silica, or talc. High-quality paint contains higher-quality pigments that are smaller and purer. They do a better job of filling in and blocking the surface underneath. You will get a better coating and brighter, longer-lasting colors.

It is the same idea when it comes to resins used in paint products. Smaller resins in high-quality paint bind together to create a film to encapsulate the pigments and penetrate the surface. You get a tighter bond that will look good for a longer duration.

High-quality paints also contain thickeners and surfactants. Thickeners will help smooth out the paint when it is applied so you get an even, thick coat of paint. Surfactants help the paint to soak into the surface and adhere better.

The benefits of using better quality paint, applied by experienced commercial painting contractors, are clear:

  • A longer-lasting paint job, which means your facility looks better for longer and requires less frequent repainting.
  • Fewer coats are needed to provide a high-quality finish, which may save you money in the long run and reduce your downtime.
  • Increased durability, which provides protection against the elements and helps prevent fading.
  • Protection against moisture, mildew, insects, and chipping or peeling.
