Dan's Construction and Repair Blog

Hello! My name is Dan and this is my construction and repair blog. I don't work in the industry myself, I have recently used a lot of different contractors during the construction of my home. Construction contractors used machinery to dig and lay the foundations for my home before the walls and trusses where installed. A roofing company installed a metal roof and contractors installed plumbing and electrical utilities. I was very impressed with the results and I learnt lots of cool things during the completion of this project. This blog contains information which will be useful to other people who plan to work with construction contractors.

3 Ways Commercial Bricklaying Can Give Your Small Business Curb Appeal

Business and buildings change hands on a routine basis in the business world. This means that the building you have purchased for your business may have had a totally different use for the last company. If you are facing an issue where the business you have purchased needs some curb appeal in order to appeal to your client base, consider the three ways commercial bricklaying can help.

Retaining Walls

You may not think of retaining walls as a way to add curb appeal to a business. The truth is a retaining wall can add curb appeal in several ways. A commercial bricklaying company can add a design to the retaining wall to give an outward artistic quality. The retaining wall itself can be used to house a landscape design that can be easily upgraded and changed out for the various seasons. The wall is also functional in that it can help with the flow of rainwater, cover unsightly foundations, or act as a barrier from washout that may occur during heavy rains and flooding.

Logo Designed Entryways

You may think that a commercial bricklaying company can only help with basic bricklaying. The truth is, they can add to your curb appeal with your logo. A commercial bricklaying company can take your logo and arrange it in brick form. This brick form can be placed in the entryway to your building as a sort of welcome sign to your clients. It adds a special touch to the building and gives the appearance that you plan on being a fixture in that building for a long time to come. If you want the logo seen by people walking past, instead of just into, your building then you can also contract the bricklaying company to do a standing logo monument. A waterfall may also be added to add to the appeal as well.

Fence Lines

You may find that the building you purchased has no privacy barrier between certain areas of your business front and surrounding businesses. For this reason, you may want to consider having a fence line put in. Your commercial bricklaying team can do this for you. They can help you decide the pattern and design that is best for you. Keep in mind, the fence does not have to  be solid. It can have grooves, special brick used, and designs that can add to the appeal.

These are only three options available to you from a commercial bricklaying company. If you have specific plan or design options, consider a consultation. The contractor can help with design layout, options, pricing and innovative ways to give you the curb appeal you want.
