Is your business property one that stands out to passersby or one that simply melds right in with the rest of the business district? Oftentimes, the differentiating factors lie in the small details that you tend to as a business owner. If you are going for an exterior business property that is a step above the rest in both aesthetic appeal and function, it is definitely worth getting in touch with a good commercial concrete contractor. The fact is, there are a lot of easy ways you can spruce up your business property just by implementing a few features crafted or constructed from concrete.
Install a concrete walkway between parking spaces.
Having a concrete walkway between opposing parking areas provides a couple of benefits. For one, you eliminate the need for concrete parking barriers because the walkway will prevent cars from rolling into the car in front of them. Also, the walkway makes it much safer for pedestrians to travel from their vehicles to your business without sharing the same space with moving vehicles.
Implement a sitting area for your customers.
If you have a span of ground on your business property that really serves no other purpose, it is a good idea to make use of the space by incorporating a concrete slab that can be used as a seating area for customers or even your associates. Your employees will enjoy the opportunity to have their lunch or break outdoors in a designated area and your customers will appreciate the thoughtful gesture as well.
Consider making a change to decorative concrete.
It is simply amazing how much concrete can now be altered to make it look like something more than just a dense grey material. Professionals can use stamping techniques to make a concrete area look like actual stone or brick pavers. Concrete can be tinted in various colors, sealed with a glossy finish to create a marble effect, and even mixed with other materials for a diverse textured look.
Have concrete curbs added around landscaping.
If you are like most business owners, the exterior of your building does have at least some landscaping. Keeping this landscaping contained can be an all-out chore if you don't have some form of landscape border in place, but concrete curbs eliminate this hassle. These curbs can be shaped without sharp edges, which is safer for customers and the curbs can be varying shades of colors, from traditional grey to brick.
