Purchased An Older Building And Need To Fix It Up? 2 Tips On What You Can Do

Constance Cunningham

If you purchased an older building, you need to ensure it is in good condition before you open your doors. If you do not, this will give customers a bad first impression, and this impression will likely last. To prevent this from happening, below are two tips on what you can do.


Walk around the exterior of the building and look at the paint job. Because the building is older, you will likely see a lot of peeling and missing paint. The paint may look faded due to the sun. Look at the paint inside the building. Inspect all walls and ceilings, including trim and baseboards.

If you see that you need to paint the building, you should hire a commercial painting contractor. A commercial company such as APC Services of New England understands how to paint a commercial building versus a residential home. This is important because you want the paint to last for a long time.

Consider the color you want the exterior building to be. Choose a color that goes well with other buildings in the area as well as the landscaping. For inside the building, colors like tan or white work well and look professional. You can hire a color designer if you need help choosing the colors.


The landscaping for your business is important. First, never let the lawn grass get tall or any bushes get out of shape. To help with this, you can hire a company to maintain your property. They will come out once a week to keep everything in good shape.

If there is no landscaping on the property, hire a landscaping contractor. The contractor can plant flowers, install hardscaping, and make over the entrance area.

When it comes to flowers, it is important that you choose the right type. For example, some flowers are low in maintenance, meaning they are both heat and drought tolerant. Some of these flowers include vinca, marigold, snapdragon, moss rose, and more.  Hardscaping includes things like water fountains, retaining walls, walkways, and rocks.

The front entrance of your building should be welcoming to visitors. To do this, the landscape contractor may place large potted plants on either side of the door and clean the area, including the flooring. The landscaping contractor can also install lighting in the entrance to ensure your customers always see well when entering the building.

Once you follow these commercial painting and landscaping tips, think of other things you can do to get your building ready. For example, it may need a new roof, new windows, and more.
