Q: How often should a commercial building be painted?

A: The standard rule of thumb is that a commercial building should be painted every 3 to 5 years to maintain its professional appearance.

However, it depends on how well the last paint job holds up. For example, a commercial building is exposed in direct sunlight and thus will likely fade quicker than buildings protected by shade. Buildings exposed to extreme weather conditions could also result in faster paint deterioration. Usually, vivid colors are more prone to fading than neutral ones.

The property owner might have other reasons to repaint the building. For instance, the owner may want a new color scheme to attract new customers, keep their customer base interested, or signify a new branding change or change in management or ownership.
