When you were a kid, did you ever take a crayon, or maybe finger paint, and create a masterpiece on your bedroom wall? Of course you did. Remember how impressed your parents were with your display of artistic creativity? Now you’re a respected Northern Virginia business leader, but deep down inside, you still want to write on a wall if you can get away with it.
Everybody who works for you feels the same way.
There’s something satisfying and inspiring about marking up a taboo surface. Office suppliers have been providing whiteboards for decades, but whiteboards are like chalkboards – you’re supposed to write on them. What if you had a brilliant idea and were able to walk to your office wall, pick up a black marker and write the idea out, diagram it, and add formula and notations? And then a co-worker sees it and picks up an orange marker and adds his or her ideas.
That’s the magic of whiteboard paint.
The Reston-based commercial painting contractors at All American Painting Plus have been successfully delivering professional painting services to businesses all across Northern Virginia for nearly two decades. As a painting business, we can attest to the creative power of whiteboard paint. We aren’t management consultants, but our observations would indicate that spontaneity is a big factor in the success of a whiteboard painting project, particularly in “open office” environments.
Here’s what professional consultants are saying about whiteboard installations:
Whiteboard paint is an amazing, durable surface, but it can be tricky to mix and apply. Virtually all of the whiteboard brands available are low volatile organic compounds (low VOC), meaning there aren’t any air quality issues in the space the paint is applied.
Mixing it, however, can be challenging because of its propensity to trap air in the paint. If a bubble finds its way onto the surface, it will eventually bust the paint, making that spot impossible to erase. An interior painting contractor from All American Painting Plus has the experience to ensure bubbles don’t become a problem.
Whiteboard paint needs a surface that is smooth as glass in order to adhere correctly. Our talented painters will professionally prepare the space, eliminating any flaws and making the space silky smooth. Experience counts when applying the paint as well. Whiteboard paint is fast drying and there is no opportunity to “touch up” the work. You have to get it done right the first time. While the paint dries quickly, it normally takes 2 to 7 days to cure and be ready for marking.
If you are ready to unleash the pent-up creativity and innovation of your team, call All American Painting Plus today for superior commercial painting services. Now go buy some markers.
All American Painting Plus has been my “go to” company for over 10 years for home and office painting and I’ve been consistently satisfied with the finished product and their professionalism. I’ve found Brian McCracken’s staff to be exceptionally skilled craftsmen and can count on them to do the job well, including taking care to prepare walls and fix problem areas before they paint so that the finished product is polished. Please ask Brian for my contact information if you would like more specifics.
I want to thank you and your team for the work you did on my residence. The men showed up at the appointed time to replace and paint the fascia board. You recommended a change from wood to a more modern substance, which I accepted, at a negligible increase in the price for the job. Thank you for that. You should be extremely proud of the team that did the work. They worked quickly, safely, and without complaint from neighbors on either side of the townhouse. As you know, I have fastidious neighbors, that watched the work on that day, and they told me later, that your crew impressed them as well.
Brian McCracken was courteous, professional and a delight, amazing qualities in a worker you invite into your home. I found him painting a home in my neighborhood. The homeowner had checked him out on Angie’s List and ranted as to the professionalism of the workers. It was important to me that the company was local and not a big, franchised company. Brian’s estimate was spot on. When I added more to the job, Rene – the foreman – consulted with Brian to give me an estimate on the additional work. The painters arrived when they said they would, working efficiently and cleanly. At the end of each day, it looked like they were never here. All of their tools picked up. When they needed to leave the ladders they asked if it would be ok and where would be the best place to leave they were they would be out of our way. All American has come back 2 more times to tackle different jobs for us. I have recommended them to friends. And now recommend All American to you. You will not be disappoint
We couldn’t be more pleased with the work All American Painting did for our home. The team did a wonderful job from start to finish, from sending us an incredibly detailed estimate so there was no guess work, to keeping the work area tidy throughout the project. We certainly will use them again! Cheers!
