Four Colors To Avoid on your Commercial Exterior

Color Tips

All business owners know that appearances are incredibly important when it comes to the success of your company. Here at Pro 1 Painters, our commercial painters know that using the best exterior paint is crucial to achieving the look you desire. It is important to note, however, that the paint color also plays an extremely important role. Today we will discuss four paint colors to absolutely avoid when it comes to the exterior of your business. These colors have tested poorly time and time again, so when the time comes for a new coat of paint, remember this!

How to Choose the Best Exterior Paint

If you are struggling to choose the best paint for the outside of your business, our professional painters are always willing to offer an opinion! Some colors work better than others for your commercial space. Here are the four colors you should avoid:

#1 – Yellow

It has been discovered that many people don’t like the color yellow. So, if you’re trying to entice new customers to visit your commercial space, yellow may turn them away! While yellow can be used nicely as an accent color inside your space, on the outside it should be avoided. If there is yellow in your logo, limit the outdoor use to your signage.

#2 – Black

Black can be expertly used in a modern setting, but it should not be overdone. A nice black and white combination can give a sharp look to your business; however, the white should be accentuated. Not only is white fresh and inviting, but it is also easy to keep it looking sharp with regular pressure-washing.

#3 – Red

Red is a color that can cause stress and anger. It also can be harsh on the eye. Any shades of red or pink should be altogether avoided, as they are not sophisticated and most likely won’t invite new customers to your business.

#4 – Green

Light green can be used to create a calm, welcoming environment, but other shades of green should be avoided. Olive green and lime green are not pleasant to look at and would not invite new customers. If you are using light green, be sure to accent it with a nice contrast like a navy blue or a crisp white.

Trust Our Exterior Painters

So what do we recommend? Grays, whites and creams, and blues all create excellent backgrounds for a variety of logos. They will make your business look sophisticated and polished. This could definitely have a positive effect on your profits.

Whatever color you decide, our experts will refresh and transform your commercial space. When you hire Pro 1 Painters, you are hiring professionals with the highest standards for quality. Before any painting project, we will listen to exactly what you are looking for. We will make note of your budget as well as when you would like the project completed. It is our goal to consistently complete our projects on time and under budget.

Ours was a particularly hard job, 1000 sf great room with 20' ceiling, lots of trim, doors, windows, etc; and lots of issues, like sheetrock cracks, backed out nail heads, etc. The Pro1 crew tackled the job like champs, keeping the mess to minimum, using the best paint products, making great sheetrock repairs, and applying the paint in crisp lines... with little to no slosh over. We are very pleased with the final job and the Pro1 personnel, especially Jamie, the job manager, and his crews. All the Pro1 staff (beginning/end) acted in a professional and courteous manor. We would be pleased recommend Pro1 to more

Had my popcorn removed. The team was promptly on time everyday. They were very respectful to my 77 year old mother which was appreciated. The finished job on the ceilings look like they were smooth finished when built. Mess was a minimum and they cleaned up daily. I would absolutely recommend this team for your project. I will use them for... interior painting more

I recently had the pleasure of working with the amazing team at Pro1Painters, and I must say, the experience was nothing short of exceptional. From the moment I reached out for an initial estimate to the final walkthrough with Eric, the entire process was coordinated with utmost professionalism and attention to detail.Seab, Marissa, and Eric... truly went above and beyond in ensuring that every aspect of the project was handled flawlessly. Seab, who provided the initial estimate, was not only prompt in responding but also thoroughly knowledgeable about the scope of work needed. He took the time to listen to my requirements and provided valuable insights and suggestions.Marissa, the coordinator, was an absolute pleasure to work with. Her excellent communication skills made the entire process seamless. She kept me informed at every step, ensuring that all my questions were answered promptly. Marrisa's attention to detail and organizational skills were truly commendable.And then there was Eric, the master painter, who brought my vision to life. His expertise and skill were evident in every stroke of the brush. From meticulously prepping the surfaces to the flawless application of paint, Eric's dedication to his craft was truly remarkable. He paid attention to even the tiniest details, ensuring a perfect finish that exceeded my expectations.I couldn't be happier with the job that Pro1Painters did. My home has been revitalized, and it looks absolutely stunning. The team's professionalism, creativity, and friendly approach made the entire process a breeze. They understood my vision, worked within my budget, and delivered outstanding results.I highly recommend giving Pro1Painters a chance to transform your home.

We were able to schedule the work the same week I called. The team did a wonderful job of correcting a very rough concrete finish. They have a good color selection for the finish they applied to our sunroom and patio floors. The men performed the work in a very timely manner, and the result is beautiful. We highly recommend Pro 1 Painters for a... guaranteed beautiful floor finish that will hold up for many years and be comfortable more

I can’t say enough good things about this business. They are professional, on time, and reasonably priced. They respect your property and your time. They show up when they say they will and work continuously until the job is done. I would give them 10 stars if it was possible. Great job.
