Good news for owners and managers of Dallas / Fort Worth industrial properties: the industrial real estate market is strong and growing. According to a Colliers research report, DFW area construction is barely keeping up with the growing demand as high-tech manufacturing moves back to the U.S., favoring this area's skilled workforce. With warehouses, manufacturing properties and flex space all in high demand, you may be wanting to take full advantage of the market by making your property attractive to potential buyers or renters.
When you're getting a property ready for a range of potential industrial tenants, it's important to be make it both widely appealing and easily adaptable to very specific industries from technology startups to pipeline manufacturers. Your building's paint job is one of the most important factors in making it more sellable or leasable. Below are some guidelines on industrial painting choices that help increase your property's appeal and value.
Most industries will need durable industrial floor coatings, possibly with anti-microbial, anti-skid or heat resistance properties. Epoxy floor coatings might be a good choice since they can cover all your bases. Epoxy floor coatings offer a strong bond to the concrete as well as good traction and heat/chemical resistance, and they also serve as a great primer in case the new occupants need to customize the flooring with other industrial floor coatings.
Walls and Ceilings
In general, it's best to go with lighter ceiling and wall paint colors as well as neutral tones. White or near-white walls and ceilings dramatically brighten a space, giving it the appeal of better lighting for productivity and safety, as well as lower lighting costs. On exterior walls, lighter tones refract the intense Texas heat and sunlight, allowing the paint job to last longer while reducing air-conditioning costs. Neutral tones are more likely to appeal to a wider range of buyers and tenants, and are more easily adapted for any company logo paint colors added later.
Energy-efficient roof coatings will be increase your property's value and are a great selling point for any industrial buyer or tenant in Dallas / Fort Worth due to energy overhead savings and weatherproofing in this climate that is both hot and prone to heavy storms. These roof coatings refract the sun's energy and essentially eliminate leakage and roof maintenance.
