3 Clear Signs Your Warehouse Needs a New Paint Job

by Francis Ortiz

A commercial facility's interior and exterior surfaces deteriorate over time due to exposure to elements such as snow, rain, and humidity. As a result, the existing paint peels, cracks, or fades. Therefore, a new paint job is important to improve and preserve your facility's aesthetics. Moreover, a well-painted warehouse also boosts employee productivity and communicates professionalism to your potential clients. Check out more reasons why you should repaint your warehouse. 

Worn-Out Exterior Surfaces

High temperatures and harsh weather can wreak havoc on the exterior surfaces of your warehouse. As a result, the surfaces flake and crack. The surfaces also peel, which takes away the much-needed protection. Your surface paint peels when water infiltrates your wall and weakens the bond between your wall and the paint. 

Your warehouse paint can also fade and break down after prolonged exposure to sunlight. This gives the surface an ashy or bleached apperance. The fading colour indicates poor wall protection, and further damage could occur if you don't act. If the paint on exterior surfaces peels or fades, a new paint job will restore your warehouse's former glory. 

Mould Growth and Water Stains

A tight coating protects your substrate from moisture damage. So, when you notice moisture stains and condensation in your warehouse interior walls, that should concern you. Leaks and moisture build-up can cause algae, fungus, and mold growth. Even worse, leaks cause paint decay. So, quickly identify the source of the leak and repair it before you apply new paint to the wall. 

A new paint job is enough to repair less severe damage on your walls. However, if the mould growth is widespread, you should first hire a professional to eliminate the mold from your walls. After adequate wall preparation, you can add a fresh paint coating to further protect your wall.

Cracked Caulking

Caulking is a flexible, waterproof filler that seals against leakages in structures. Sadly, extreme weather can cause the caulking on your walls to crack. Small cracks on your wall caulking can quickly turn into large gaps that give way to dirt, insects, and water. Worse still, the large gaps can lead to a pest infestation, which puts the contents of your warehouse at risk of damage. You can fill simple cracks with new caulking. However, a fresh coat of paint is the best remedy for large gaps to ensure your warehouse doesn't decline further.

Now that you know the signs to look out for, ensure that you only hire skilled commercial painters for painting your warehouse. Review the painter's previous work and go through their online reviews to confirm if they tick all your boxes.
