When this happens, it can negatively impact your business by taking away from its appeal or even causing hiccups in daily operations. Common signs of deterioration include: chipped walls, cracks in concrete, issues with floors and foundations, water leaks, the formation of mold, corrosion and more. If wear and tear isn’t addressed right away, it can lead to bigger problems, such as safety concerns, down the road.

2. Employees Are Having Trouble

If your employees are having a hard time working efficiently in your current space, it could be a sign it’s time for a commercial remodel. A lack of functionality in your commercial space can eventually lead to low morale and cut into potential profits. Nobody wants to work in an environment that’s subpar or makes it increasingly difficult to do the job correctly. Consistent difficulties for employees can cause a high turnover rate, making it more difficult for you to find trustworthy employees you can count on.

3. Outdated Appearance

Westgate Smoky Mountain Resort & WaterparkHave you ever driven past a building that catches your eye? You probably begin to wonder what the business is and might even get the itch to go inside to check it out. The visual appearance of any business is vital. Commercial spaces that catch the eye can help to draw even more folks to your business. Conversely, a building that’s become an eye sore or lacks an inviting appearance can keep people from visiting. If your space has fallen behind the times, it’s time for a commercial remodel.

4. Expensive Operational Costs

If your operational expenses are increasing, outdated utilities could be to blame. Utilities are a significant chunk of the operating budget for any business. Specifically, energy use is the single largest operating expense for commercial office buildings, representing about a third of the operating budget. If your utilities are outdated, it could be time to renovate. A new energy efficient building could help your business save a significant amount of money over time.

5. Not Enough Space

Have you run out of areas to store product, equipment or any other required materials? Do customers feel cramped when they visit? A commercial remodel can give you that extra space your business so desperately needs! Operations run much more efficiently when you have the necessary space.

6. Furnishings, Decor & Equipment Are Old

What was once considered top of the line when your commercial space was first built can become outdated over time. If this is the case with the furniture, decor and equipment in your business, it may be time to consider a commercial remodel with Horner Building Company. When these things become older, they can make your space less inviting or even become less efficient.

7. Property Doesn’t Reflect Brand

The image and reputation the community has of your business affects how popular of a place it is. Those with a positive image, thanks to an inviting appearance and atmosphere, are more likely to be visited by a larger number of people. On the other hand, a business with an appearance that doesn’t match the brand or is lacking in appeal can keep people away.

8. Want to Attract New Clients

The appearance of your commercial space is a tool you can use to attract new clients! Buildings that are aesthetically pleasing have a tendency to catch the eye of folks and increase the interest the average person has in your business. A commercial remodel can give your space a much-needed facelift that improves its appeal and gets people interested in what you have to offer. There are few marketing tools as powerful as curiosity!
