As a manager or supervisor, you have plenty of things on your mind. Between managing the fiscal and personal effects of COVID-19, to incorporating social distancing practices into your daily operations, aesthetic improvements might be the last thing on your mind.
While exterior home painting and curb appeal might be valuable for residential buildings, it can often be a second thought for those in commercial buildings. What you may not have realized, however, is that repairs and refurbishing your building’s metal siding is a lot more than just a visual improvement. Here’s what you need to know.
The Cost of Damaged Siding
Metal siding is constantly exposed to the elements and, as such, is vulnerable to the effects of weather like rain, hail, and snow. Just like wood or plastic siding, metal siding is susceptible to warping and expanding, which leads to significant damage.
As moisture builds up on metal siding, it degrades the quality of the metal, which can loosen bolts, pull at nails, and compromise the structural integrity of your siding.
In the simplest sense, shabby external siding looks unprofessional. You never want the first thing your potential clients see to be a building in shambles. This discredits you as a business owner and can devalue your hard work. Always start with a great first impression and professional curb appeal.
Aside from the aesthetic issues of damaged metal siding, it can also result in more extensive problems.
Rust and corrosion can eat away at your siding and leave weak spots or even holes in your exterior walls. At best, these holes will let cold or hot air into your building and result in higher energy bills to combat the exterior air. At worst, holes in your exterior walls can let in pests like bugs or rodents. The last thing you want as a plant manager is an infestation that leads to production shutdowns and expensive pest removal bills.
