Signs it’s Time to Remodel Your Commercial Space

By November 8, 2017August 8th, 2022Renovation Tips

Turning a blind eye to your commercial space is never a good idea. Whether you’ve grown fast or have been around for years, you may be missing signs that it’s time to remodel your commercial space.
Just like a child outgrows clothes, businesses often outgrow their spaces. Whether your business has experienced rapid growth or has been operating for decades, you might be missing the signs that it’s time for a remodel. Here are five super simple signs it’s time to renovate your commercial space.

It brings you back in time

If you’re transported to another decade when you walk into your space, it’s probably time for a change. Spaces that are completely outdated often come with deterioration, inefficient appliances, costly repairs from lack of maintenance, and an unprofessional feel. This can not only make for an unproductive environment but can keep potential business from staying once they walk through the door.

You’ve grown…fast

The unforeseen quick growth of your business isn’t a bad thing, but it may mean you’ve already outgrown your office space. Simple upgrades such as wall removals or converting storage rooms into offices could prevent the business from becoming cramped and unorganized. The best option is to take care of it sooner, rather than later and risk a mess that’s even harder to clean up.

Employee complaints are increasing

Especially recently, businesses are realizing that happy employees can result in a more productive business. Employees can’t efficiently do their jobs without an appropriate space to do so. Some of your employees may be one creaky door or trip over a broken floorboard away from calling it quits. A commercial space reboot might be just what everyone needs to push a little harder at work.

There are mixed messages

There’s a lot of ways a business can pinpoint its brand. As you begin to feel confident in your individual brand, you might realize your space doesn’t quite mesh with it. Commercial space is the final puzzle piece in the completion of a brand. Even small improvements like paint colors and signage can round out how you want consumers to see your business. Looks aren’t everything, but they sure do help.

It’s time for a change

Your commercial space might not be old, but might not necessarily be new. Despite new appliances and a clean, working structure, space is missing a few things you and your employees might like. A spontaneous change can boost morale, grow an already successful business, and promote your dedication to your business.

Nothing ever got better by staying the same! re:fab has a qualified team ready to help with all of your commercial space renovation needs!

EIFS + Stucco

Commercial buildings and industrial facilities featuring exterior walls with an Exterior Insulation and Finish System (EIFS) have the attractiveness of a stucco finish but with greater insulation, toughness and longevity. In fact, unlike stucco, EIFS is actually a multi-layered system that includes insulation board, base coat and finish coat. It’s a combination that provides a classic look with modern advantages.

In addition to much-improved insulation, EIFS can improve indoor air quality and reduce the environmental impact of a structure throughout its lifetime, and it is available in a virtually unlimited range of colors and textures.

EIFS has transformed commercial buildings across all industries and our team of specialists can help you understand the benefits of this important application.
