Commercial Painting: Preliminaries to Repainting Services

Commercial Painting / commercial painters

What are these preliminaries?

Commercial painting is among the services to be completed in maintaining the exterior surfaces of a building. Improving the physical and visual appearance of the building is only secondary to obtaining a lasting paint finish. Exterior painters know there are preliminaries to repainting services that should be considered.

What are these preliminaries? These are the repairs to be done to the surface walls of the building. Commercial painters and local painting contractors should be aware that these have an impact on the resilience of the exterior wall finish.

A number of these repair preliminaries in commercial painting are as follows:

  • Sealing small masonry cracks: Prevents rain water, driven by wind, to seep through
  • Installing new mortar similar to the masonry mortar joints that have weakened: Strengthens the joints and avoids the growth of moss
  • Patching damaged masonry block: Thwarts internal damage and smoothens the surface
  • Identifying and cleaning weep ports: Removes clogs to the wall drainage system and deters moisture problems

After completing any of the above mentioned repairs, coating the masonry and concrete walls with Sherwin-Williams SherLastic Elastomeric Coating is highly recommended. Considered as one of the pioneers in the painting industry, Sherwin-Williams have their own line of waterproof commercial products. This will give business owners various options on what should be suitably applied to the exterior surface of their property.
