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.

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.

PRO stands for professional! That is what this company is. From start to finish Seab, Marissa, Austin, Dobby, Monica and Heather were awesome, professional and caring. They all exceeded our expectations and we appreciated their personal approach to details, including tips for our diy projects. We are selling our home and needed several full... rooms and a ceiling painted. They arrived on time, we’re respectful of our space and and it was done on time and at a fair price. We highly recommend Pro 1 painters to more

I had several references and estimates and what intrigued me was Mr Miller when he came over, was his professional and kindness while conducting his estimate. He handed me a brochure, told me about their warranty and that females would be doing the work! The next day Amanda came over and her enthusiasm and kindness was really great!So I chose... Pro 1 painters! Whomever is reading this, trust me when I say the job they did was mind blowing! Monica and Jennifer were also amazing from prepping, covering furniture, the cut work and attention to detail was beyond amazing. They exceeded my expectations ten-fold! Then Amanda came over after the work was completed and conducted a walkthrough to ensure I was satisfied! Who does this??I will definitely use Pro 1 painters again! Please call them, you won’t be disappointed!!read more

Wonderful to work with from the initial call with Marissa, through Estimate process with Jacob to the Lead Painter Steven and his crew. They made sure we were happy each step of the way and what a Beautiful Finished Product - the Exterior of our Home is Stunning! Look forward to working with them on our next project.

review written but for some reason it used my Childs name instead of mine nonetheless, we used pro 1 painters for our interior painting of foyer, staircase and living area and they did a fabulous job! Price was reasonable, the crew was quick and did a great job. The crew was trustworthy and completed the job with us at work and I had no issues... whatsoever with their trustworthiness or efficiency. Still amazed they worked as quickly as they did! We plan to use them again in the future and Id recommend them to more

Used this business for interior painting of our foyer & living room with 20 foot plus vaulted ceilings. Price was very reasonable. Crew was professional, courteous and very efficient. They were quiet as a whisper and worked very quickly. End product was great and we plan to use them again for another project!

Pro 1 Painting Company is all about family and friends. My husband works there and been employed for a little over a year. I had major surgery on Wednesday and today I received a beautiful bouquet of flowers from the owners. They really lifted my spirit. It's really heart warming to know someone cares whom you've never met but heard so much... about. Just wanted to share this and say thanks for your prayers, texts, and more

Hurricane Sally came through and blew over a huge pine which destroyed our roof and caved in our ceiling — Pro 1 Painters fixed it up, looks great. They also removed popcorn texture in one bedroom, and we're going to have them come back to remove it from a couple other bedroom ceilings too. It's literally better than new.
