Why Is Commercial Ceiling Painting So Important?

 Why Is Commercial Ceiling Painting So Important?

When you think about painting and maintenance in your warehouse, hangar, or facility, what comes to mind? Probably high-traffic surfaces, like your floors, safety aisles, and line striping. Maybe slip-resistant coatings for stairways and handrails, or fresh paint for office spaces and reception areas.

All good and worthwhile projects.

Today, however, let’s take a different perspective, looking up instead of down. How are your ceiling decks, and why does it matter?

5 Reasons To Paint Your Commercial Ceiling Deck

1. Professional appearance

Over time, the structure of your ceiling will collect a huge amount of dust and debris, and paint naturally fades and peels. Depending on the nature of your operations, they may also accumulate residue, further adding to a drab appearance.

Routine prep and painting drastically improves the aesthetic of the entire space, making it more attractive for employees, guests, and clients alike.

2. Light

Dark ceilings (whether they’re painted a dark color or are just dirty) absorb light, driving up your utility costs. Bright, crisp ceilings reflect light instead, helping to maximize visibility.

3. Safety

Dirty ceilings can be a fire hazard, especially if dust is allowed to accumulate near ductwork and high-heat elements. Routine cleaning and painting reduces the risk. As we touched on above, brighter facilities are also safer facilities overall for your team during their day-to-day tasks.

4. Compliance with health regulations

Depending on your industry, the risk of falling debris, dust, or paint chips can be a major problem. If you’re in the food processing world, this is particularly important, but it really applies to any facility.

5. Catch structural issues or damage early

Never inspecting or caring for your ceiling means that issues that could’ve been caught early go undetected, from surface corrosion and decay to leaks, holes, or rot. Routine inspection will always save you in the long run, letting you direct maintenance dollars in a proactive way, rather than be forced to react to a problem.

What Kind of Paint Is Used on Warehouse and Commercial Ceilings?

 Why Is Commercial Ceiling Painting So Important?

Dryfall paint is a go-to product.

We begin by thoroughly prepping and containing the space, including the floors below. This allows us to capture dirt, dust, and debris that’s dislodged during the prep process, and it also helps after painting. The beauty of dryfall paint is that any overspray during the paint process dries almost instantly, creating a fine dust rather than rogue paint droplets. This dust can be easily cleaned up, making it a highly efficient way to contain a large-scale commercial repaint.

“I cannot imagine finer painters--and I have worked with many. They work exceptionally hard. It is a joy to see their workmanship!”

— Alicia R.

“I can't say enough about how courteous and professional my foreman was. He was on time every morning and arrived cheerful and ready to go. He is highly organized and very thoughtful. He was extremely careful and respectful when moving my belongings - a mature professional.”

— Nora Robinson

“M.B. Jessee painted the exterior of my Spanish house over 9 years ago, and they did such an incredible job that they are still getting referrals from me today. The paint is holding up perfectly -- there is absolutely no peeling chipping or any other deterioration. I still remember that my final walk-through list consisted of items written on one side of a 3x5 index card (and I'm REAL picky about my house!) However, when Matt and I did that walk-through over HALF the items were no longer an issue, as his team had noticed them first and they had already been resolved.”

— JoAnn Newcomb

“Edy and crew are hard at work. They are doing a great job. Very professional outfit you have. Your crew is a delight. You may use me for a reference!”

— Heidi B

“I loved working with M.B. Jessee from start to finish on a relatively small paint job that grew a bit. I felt in very good hands from the moment Matt Jessee came out to give me the estimate and talk about my job. He was very easy to talk to and he handled my changes very well. Then the actual work done by Rigoberto and Mario was impeccable. They were neat and meticulous and the paint job looks beautiful. I could not have asked for more and when I did, they accommodated me 100%. I will not hesitate to call M.B. Jessee again and to refer them to friends.”

— Nancy Kurkjian

“It was a great experience working with MB Jessee. The crew was careful and thorough as they painted the house, sealed stucco cracks, repaired dry-rotted wood, stained the deck, etc. Robert, Gersson, Jose, and all of the people involved in the process from the estimate to the job completion were friendly and professional.”

— Mike C.
Livermore, CA

“MB Jessee just finished our exterior and we couldn't be happier with our experience. The foreman (Pedro) and lead painter (Ricardo) were incredible to work with: they communicated scheduling clearly, Ricardo was a joy to be around every day, the showed up early every day, were incredibly tidy and did great paint work. The final walkthrough experience was incredible. Pedro pointed out items I missed demonstrating a clear desire to complete another quality project. I highly recommend them. As others have noted they definitely aren't the cheapest but you quickly realize that you're getting what you pay for. The 3-year guarantee is also a nice touch since there are likely touch-up items that will show up after the job is done.”

“Richard and crew have been great, for sure. As much as I look forward to having the job done and my house back in order, I really enjoyed having them around. You should feel really good about how they represent your company.”

— Jessica Dodson

“I want to express my thanks for a job well done. The rooms look great and there is no problem with any marks on the all the trim, floor, carpet, etc. The paint job is lovely. I also want to express my thanks for the level of professionalism the foreman showed in running the job. He was very attentive to any changes I needed to make, was extremely careful in getting the faux paint color and effect correct. Thanks so much for a job well done.”

— Suzan D’Arcy

“Julie,Just to let you know I am very appreciative of your crew catching the plumbing/mold problem. It was very astute of them. I wanted to let you know that again your crew has done excellent work here, please pass this along to Mr. Jessee. There are some bumps in the road here, but the painting and your crew has not been one of them. Their work is the only thing going right currently, and this crew is very nice and respectful. It is much appreciated. Thank you again.”

— Beth

“Matt, Julie & Ricardo, I just wanted to take this opportunity to thank the three of you for the wonderful job you did in hosting the SFBA NARI Chapter Meeting on Wednesday evening. Everything was perfect from beginning to end. Members and guests alike walked away with a truly positive experience. The "painter for a day" and the cookies in the paint cans were an absolute brilliant touch and received rave reviews. What a wonderful way to do such positive marketing. Thanks again for a truly memorable experience for our members and guests. You are valued as a NARI member.”
