Improving your commercial property’s kerb appeal will boost its value, keep tenants happy and make it attractive to buyers in the future.
Updating and maintaining your commercial property’s kerb appeal could have more benefits than you realise. First impressions count and just a few small updates and quick fixes could make your building stand out from the others surrounding it. A regularly maintained and well looked after building is also likely to have any structural problems identified sooner making repairs less expensive than if the problem was left to get worse.
As well as the benefits to the building itself, an impressive and eye-catching exterior will make your commercial building a more popular choice amongst tenants looking to impress their own customers.
Use these 6 tips to start improving your commercial property’s kerb appeal today.
Use commercial window cleaners – There is nothing more off-putting for potential tenants than the sight of grubby, stained windows. Neglecting to get your windows cleaned regularly could put potential tenants off as they may worry about whether other parts of the building are maintained or not if the windows clearly aren’t.
With over 25 years of experience in offering commercial window cleaning services, you can rely on us here at Archer Window Cleaning to maintain your building’s kerb appeal by putting the sparkle back into your windows.
Landscaping or plants – From making sure your lawn is always mowed to putting hanging flower baskets or potted plants at your entranceway, a splash of greenery or flowers can make the world of difference by cheering up even the drabbest of building’s exterior.
Update signage – Have you looked at your signage recently? Outdated signage can look unprofessional and be off-putting to potential customers. If you need new signage installing or your current signage just needs a good old clean, this is a service that our rope access window cleaners will be happy to offer.
Pressure wash the building – Over time you will find that pollution and dirt will build upon your building’s brickwork and other surfaces. Whilst you may not notice the gradual build-up, try looking at your building as a customer seeing it for the first time and it may suddenly look a little more tired than you realised. If you’re interested in jet pressure washing of the communal areas which needs sprucing up, as part of your commercial window cleaning services just let us know when you make an enquiry.
Focus on the entrance – Whilst maintaining the whole of your property’s exterior is important, you should start by focusing on the entrance as this is the main point that your tenants will be concerned about as it is the first impression their customers will get of their business. Focus on making your entrance look professional, welcoming and attractive with the use of lighting, a smartly painted door, paving and/or plants where appropriate.
Keep up with the maintenance – A tired looking building can be a real turn off for both tenants and their customers alike. Make sure that paintwork is updated before it starts fading or flaking off and signs of rot or damage are nipped in the bud before the problem becomes bigger, more expensive or a real eyesore.
