Putting the right face on your business

The exterior façade of your building defines your business on multiple levels. It can provide initial answers to questions potential customers consider as they decide whether to enter your doors: Will I find what I want here? Is this my kind of place? Will I feel comfortable being here? Will I want to return here again?

First impressions are often lasting impressions. That’s why as the first visual representation of your brand, your façade design can create both positive and negative expectations in potential customers.

Attention to design detail and putting yourself in a customer’s place can tip the scales in your favor. If it rains a lot in your location, or if the sun generates glare and heat, consider a roof awning as part of your façade design.

If your site is surrounded by traditional and conservative architecture, a glitzy exterior may not be the right design solution. If your targeted customers expect you to provide a certain style and quality of products and services, presenting a façade design at odds with those expectations will not earn you new and repeat business.

It’s been said that you never get a second chance to make a good first impression. All the more reason to put the right face on your business when you build or remodel.
