Benefits of Exterior Building Wraps
If you are a building or business owner, you know how important maintaining the look of a building is. An outdated or poorly maintained building can cause future tenants or employees to look elsewhere. While updating the look is important, it can get really expensive, really quick. Solar Art installs exterior building wraps all the time. Exterior building wraps are a very simple way to update the exterior of your building for a very affordable price.
What are exterior building wraps?
Before we get into the benefits, let's first talk about what exterior building wraps even are. Exterior building wraps make your building and your business look professional and modern. Building wraps also increase energy efficiency, decrease the costs of heating and cooling, and positively affect the comfort level of people inside. In fact, the California Energy Commission says that as much as 40 percent of a building’s cooling needs are due to heat gain through the windows, so keeping it at bay is vital. Finally, this transformation will enhance the value of your property to potential buyers or tenants. Exterior wraps are created by design professionals who work alongside architects, to generate the look and detail needed for each building. Building owners have many reasons to consider wraps; sun glare and heat gain, for instance. Other owners simply want a fresh new look for their building, one that makes people proud to work there or call it home. The financial boost of monetizing building spaces for marketing and advertising purposes drives owners as well.
Building wraps increase your building’s curb appeal
Curb appeal and having the best looking building on the block is really important. A potential tenant or client is going to drive right past an old and outdated building and go straight for the new and modern building. Building wraps create more privacy inside, and it gives the building a clean and uniform look on the outside. This stands true whether the window shades and blinds are up or down, or even if lights are on or off during daytime hours. Building wraps are installed with different kinds of materials to make your building custom to you. From exterior window tint and colored vinyl wrap to painting mullions, the entire project is conceived in advance and executed meticulously.
Wrapping improves comfort and lowers energy bills
Harsh glare from outside is an extreme pain point for many tenants. Not only does the blinding light bother people’s eyes, but the extra heat can be unbearable as well. Of course, lower heating and cooling bills are great, but not getting phone calls from tenants with complaints about their discomfort is even better.
Additionally, it’s possible that you'll qualify for an energy rebate through your local utility company when you add a building wrap. Typically, a fixed price per square foot of covering is rebated. You can find details for your local area at the Database of State Incentives for Renewables & Efficiency®.
Building wraps can advertise your business
Do you want to call attention and advertise your business or building? Or perhaps you see the potential in selling advertising space to other businesses. You can easily accomplish these things with custom vinyl graphics and exterior building wraps. Much like vehicle wraps provide rolling advertising for businesses, our building wraps use the facade of your property as giant billboards. Building wraps get attention, and they take advantage of unused space. Why not use them for outdoor advertising?
