Can My Business Stay Open While It’s Being Repainted?

Giving the inside of your business a fresh coat of paint won’t just keep things looking nice and trim, it will demonstrate to your clients and customers that you care about the details. A well-maintained establishment updated with engaging colors and modern styles inspire trust in everyone who steps into your place of work.

That said, we understand that painting can be a significant disruption to your day-to-day operations, so it’s easy to keep pushing it back — or even consider temporarily closing down during the paint job. But don’t worry— and don’t put it off! With careful planning, you can still run your business throughout a repaint.

Infographic with text listing how you can keep your business open while repainting.

Time Is of the Essence

If your doors aren’t open 24/7, or your business has a predictable slow period of the day, consult with your painting contractor if they can come during off-hours. If you run an office, ask if they can come in during the weekend while there are no employees. If you oversee an apartment complex, could they work in-between when tenants leave for work and the evening rush hour?

To Whom It May Concern…

Use several forms of communication to let people who will be affected by the disruption of the repainting. Send an email to your employees, notify them in your weekly meeting, and post signs around the office that display the paint job details (date, timeframe, plans to move around, etc.)

If you run a business that spends facetime with customers, post signs around the shop and use social media to spread the word. The advantage is two-fold as it shows you care about the customers, yet functions as a subtle advertisement for your upcoming spiffy-looking business. 

Get in the Zone

Depending on the size of your business, we suggest you break the area into different zones so that only one section of your business is being painted at a time. This partition makes it easier to move around desks for a day, divert foot traffic temporarily, or use a separate entrance. Without these zones set up, the entire area can be a congested, frustrating, and dangerous mess that only makes the paint job take even longer.

Paint the Town Red

When the painting’s all finished, brag about it! Make posts for your social media, update your website, and include a few words about the new look in your email newsletters. In the time leading up to the reveal, build some hype for a grand re-opening of sorts.

Matt and Team Padlo are professionals who excel at their craft and provide a great experience. My ROI is seen immediately with the finished product. A significant value add with this project of completing a 23 x 20 rec room for my kids. I've already requested Matt to complete my next painting project. I highly recommend Matt and his team. Thank you.

My husband and I moved into a new construction ( read: all walls were builders white ) home and didn't paint anything for over a year. Once finding out we were pregnant we decided it was time to paint everything while having painting our nursery. We were at a paint store looking at samples and grabbed a bunch of business cards and called every one. Matt Padlo called us back within the hour, came to our house, took measurements and gave us a quote all in the same day. As a matter of fact we hired Padlos Perfect Painting and they started work BEFORE most of the others returned our call. Matt also had a designer come do a walk through ( at no additional cost ) which ended up being a huge help, we ended up picking three different shades of gray, and adding some accent walls, and painting our babys closet a gorgeous tangerine orange which we absolutely love. Matt and his team were polite and professional while keeping our house clean and furniture protected. They were quick and did amazing work. I can't recommend them enough!
