    Exploring Some of the Most Popular Paint Colors for 2014

    Last updated 2 days 14 hours ago

    Much like clothing fashion, paint colors go in and out of style. If you are planning on painting your commercial business, you may want to consider choosing one of this year’s popular colors. By painting your business in a trendy shade, you will help attract customers and create an inviting atmosphere for your employees. Let’s explore some of the most popular paint colors for the year 2014.

    Radiant Orchid
    Radiant Orchid is Pantone’s 2014 Color of the Year. This unique and vibrant shade combines muted elements of purple and pink. When painting with Radiant Orchid, you can use this shade as an accent color to make an architectural detail stand out. Radiant Orchid can be used in combination with neutral tones to create an elegant and unique paint scheme for your commercial business.

    Sand is a popular paint color for the current year. Shades of sand are deeper in intensity than off-white or beige, but still provide a neutral appearance to the wall. This versatile shade of light brown can be used alone, or can be combined with other colors to enhance the appearance of a room or building.

    Two shades of blue have gained popularity as paint colors this year. Placid Blue is a soft, muted blue that is similar to the sky on a sunny day. For a more bold pop of color, Dazzling Blue is a rich and royal shade of darker blue. Both shades of blue can create a calm and serene atmosphere for your indoor spaces.

    The Advantages of Epoxy Paint

    Last updated 6 days ago

    Epoxy paint is a terrific choice for your indoor or outdoor painting needs. Because of its exceptional durability, epoxy paint is often used to coat industrial floors and other surfaces. If you are seeking a great way to improve the appearance and safety of your commercial or industrial space, you may want to consider hiring a painting contractor to apply epoxy paint to your floors. To highlight the benefits of choosing epoxy paint, here is a look at some of the advantages of this popular paint type.

    Resists Impact
    Epoxy paint is incredibly durable and able to resist impact. In an industrial setting, epoxy paint will be able to withstand the demands of your daily workflow. When you coat your floors with epoxy paint, you can feel great knowing that your epoxy surface will not chip, crack, or fracture.

    Prevents Slipping
    In a commercial or industrial environment, it is important to create a work surface that reduces the risk of slipping or falling. With an epoxy paint floor, you will provide a safe and slip resistant floor for your employees. The slip resistant properties of epoxy paint remain even when the flooring service is wet or covered in an oily substance.

    Reduces Water Damage
    When you coat your commercial floors with epoxy paint, you will help to reduce the risk of water damage to your foundation or floors. By creating a totally impenetrable surface, epoxy paint will prevent any water or other liquids from seeping into the surfaces beneath your floor.

    To learn more about the benefits of choosing epoxy paint for your business, contact John Byrne Painting by calling (484) 801-0105. Our Philadelphia painting company offers a full range of painting solutions for your commercial business, and our many satisfied customers continue to choose us for their painting needs.

    Selecting Paint for Your Retail Space

    Last updated 16 days ago

    Just as important as the layout of your store, the color of your retail space can have a big impact on how customers view your business and on how much money they spend. Considering that the color of your retail space is about much more than personal preference, how does one go about selecting the best paint? Here are a few tips from the commercial painting experts at John Byrne Painting on selecting paint for your retail space.

    Know the Colors of Your Industry
    To help narrow down the perfect paint colors, start by evaluating the traditional colors associated with your industry. Although unexpected color combinations might communicate a sense of newness and excitement, they might also suggest that you don’t fully understand your customers or your industry. For example, bright, bold colors in a baby clothing store may communicate that you do not understand what motivates new parents when looking for baby clothes.

    Complement Your Merchandise
    If your retail space is not yet open, group your merchandise together as it will appear on the shelves to get a sense of which colors (and how much) appear in your store. This will allow you to choose wall colors that will complement the primary colors of your store. If your merchandise is similarly colored, or if you have large gaps of space between items, use your walls to bring bold color to your retail space.

    Refer to Your Market Research
    In addition to knowing the colors associated with your industry, use demographic data and other market research to learn more about your targeted customer base. This will help you choose colors that appeal to your customers. For example, teens and young adults look for energized, fun atmospheres, while older adults respond better to relaxing, efficient environment.

    Whether you need help selecting the right color for your retail space or you already know what colors you want, John Byrne Painting can help in all aspects of your commercial painting project.

    A Closer Look at the Different Types of Commercial Paints and Coatings

    Last updated 22 days ago

    Whether you manufacture plastic lawn chairs, refinish classic cars, or have a worn-down office building, commercial paints and coatings can give you the color you need to finish your products or refinish your workspace. A commercial painting company can help you find the right paint and coating for your project, but here is an overview of some of the different types of commercial paints and coatings available.

    Special Purpose Coatings
    Although this segment includes a wide variety of different paints and coatings, the one unifying characteristic is that these tend to be “field-applied,” as opposed to being applied in a factory setting. Automotive refinish coatings is the largest sub-segment under the umbrella of special purpose coatings, with industrial maintenance coatings and marine paints rounding out the top three.

    Industrial Coatings
    Industrial coatings are any coatings applied to products at the time of manufacturing. For example, paint applied to toys or kitchen appliances while they are still in the warehouse is considered an industrial coating. According to the U.S. Census Bureau and the American Coatings Association, 331 million gallons of industrial coatings were sold in 2010.

    Architectural Coatings
    This is the largest segment of the commercial paint industry. Combined with consumer paints, architectural coatings make up approximately half of the total coatings produced annual in the United States. Architectural coatings can be used to maintain the inside of your office or factory, or beautify the outside of your building or warehouse.

    For help selecting and applying architectural coatings in the Tri-State area, contact John Byrne Painting. For well over three decades, we have been the most trusted commercial painting company in Philadelphia and the surrounding areas. Whether you want to paint a single wall or an entire warehouse, our commercial painters can help. To learn more about our services, call us at (484) 801-0105. 

    What is Abrasive Blasting?

    Last updated 1 month ago

    Some stains are relatively easy to remove; others require a bit more firepower. When it comes to removing unwanted paint, rust, corrosion, dirt, or any other type of discoloration, abrasive blasting is the best option. Abrasive blasting, also known as sandblasting, entails accelerating gritty, sand-sized particles with compressed air to clean metal objects. This process can be dangerous, so it is recommended that abrasive blasting be performed by trained professionals only.

    If your have metal structures around your business or warehouse that could benefit from abrasive blasting, contact John Byrne Painting. In addition to our commercial painting services, we specialize in caulking, waterproofing, and abrasive sandblasting.
