4 Ways to Improve a Company's Exterior Appeal, Queens, New York

A business should leave a positive impression on new and returning customers. Well-maintained parking lots, for example, are more inviting to drivers and reduce the risk of property damage. Here are a few steps to take to make your facility safe and welcoming.

How to Make Your Business Attractive to Customers

1. Refresh the Parking Lot

A freshly paved and striped parking lot sends a message of organization and attention to detail. Clearly painted lines also help you make the most of the square footage, helping customers find empty spots. Handicapped spots are also essential for compliance with the Americans with Disabilities Act, showing your business welcomes everyone. 

2. Add to the Landscape

3. Repair or Repaint Siding

Wind, rain, and hail can damage a building’s facade. Sunlight also causes painted surfaces to fade, crack, and peel. To keep your property fresh, repair or replace damaged siding as needed. Repaint the building’s exterior every five years, including the doors, shutters, and window frames.

4. Maintain the Sidewalks

Cracked sidewalks increase a property owner’s liability if a visitor or employee falls. Repairing an unattractive sidewalk makes it safer, which could result in long-term litigation savings. 

Keep all hardscaping pristine by sweeping and removing trash daily. Pressure-washing once a month removes unsightly stains and grime to give the property a professional look.
