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.

Customer Reviews

“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

“In all the years I've worked with MB Jessee, I'm always so impressed by your crews. They are so respectful of everything--you never even know they're there! Except that the paint looks amazing when they're gone. We've had one showing of our home and already have an offer. I'm sure it is because the paint looks so beautiful.”

— Erin T.

“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

“My entire experience with MB Jesse was very professional. The crew were very friendly and super accommodating of my ridiculous schedule and geriatric pets in the house. The finished product, which was pretty much my entire house, far exceeds my expectations. Would definitely work with them again!”

— Heather Jordan

“Awesome work by highly experienced, professional painters. They were: Conscious about the amount of time it would take. Ours had a lot of pre-work and took 3 weeks. Accommodating when we added a few last-minute changes Understanding when a heatwave hit and we remove some of the plastic sheeting over windows, which they had to put back up the next day. Accessible, especially the on-site crew (Hi Jose & Victor!) -- always answering questions and checking in. The end result is a perfect paint job that makes our 94-year-old house look brand new. I would definitely hire MBJ again”

— Stacey R.

“The painters at MB Jesse are top notch! Cesar's team was super friendly and helpful. They were very polite and accommodating. Their expertise in everything painting related was evident in their attention to detail and efficiency painting tricky spaces. The apartment looks brand new!”

— Adam Swisher

“Everyone I dealt with was nice, helpful, and very professional. The price was reasonable! (I didn't feel like I was getting the "San Francisco price." The attention to detail and work quality was excellent. They did what they said they would do in the exact timeframe they said they would do. Highly recommend!”

— Tim Tyson

“The entire MB Jessee team is courteous, efficient and professional. From scheduling and estimating to the crew managers and crew, they all did an excellent job on a small (but complicated) two room project in my house. I'm already thinking about getting them scheduled for the next project in the spring.”

— Cari Cheney

“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

“Thank you for the support you have given the Women's Cancer Resource Center over the past year!”

— Margo - Director Women's Cancer Resource Center

“Today I received a beautiful bouquet from your company. It was totally unexpected and very much appreciated--a lovely surprise. Also today, your crew finished my job. I am so pleased with all their fine work. Richard is absolutely amazing and a total delight to work with. He was also extremely helpful during the paint color process. The interior work in my home far exceeded my expectations. A big thank you to you and the crew for an outstanding job. Thank you, thank you for a terrific job!”

— Barbara

“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.”
