How Strata Painters Can Add Value to a Building
Strata paint work is often considered to be in a different class than residential, and even commercial, painting. Indeed, the skills and equipment needed to complete complex strata jobs are quite different from those needed for interior and exterior domestic paint work. Strata work involves painting the exterior and interior of large buildings and putting in place scaffolding to paint at great heights.
This article will go into a few of the ways this investing in strata painting is beneficial to a building.
many ways, this works in a similar way to how it does for houses that are being put on the market. Whether it’s an apartment building or an office building, looks and appearance are obviously not the be all and end all when someone is looking for space, but they remain very important and one of the main initial selling-points.
If the exterior is freshly painted and looks to be in good condition, people are going to be more likely to enquire about availability; it is an excellent way to create interest given that the exterior is the first thing they see. That’s part of the reason why it’s important to having a strata painting specialist visit and repaint the surface of the building yearly.
Ongoing strata maintenance and repairs are hugely important when you’re dealing with such a large building, but ensuring that the painted surface remains in a healthy state can also help protect the building the long run.
Unbeknownst to many, we don’t paint homes and buildings purely for aesthetic reasons. In fact, paint acts as something of a protective covering and can work to prevent damage from pests and moisture that can lead to corrosion. It also reduces the impact of the often harsh Australian sun, which can do significant damage to many timber surfaces.
Lastly, fungi and other substances are less likely to build up on a painted surface, thus giving the building a cleaner look and also preventing the decay of wood that can occur as a result.
Colour choice is very important for all paint work including strata jobs. It can go a long way in helping to create or embrace a certain look for a particular building. Whether the architectural style is colonial, modern or post-modern, ensuring the paint colour complements it has a huge bearing on its overall appeal. This, in turn, can be a big factor in defining not only the types of people that will be interesting in renting space in the building, but also their experience of it.
