Graffiti Building Image - San Antonio TX - The Concrete Decor StoreIf you just spent money putting up a building or redoing a building front, you know how proud it can make you to see something that you worked hard for become a reality. It feels great to walk by something that you had such a big part of creating – maybe even great enough to brag about a bit! Imagine how it feels, then, to walk by that building and see that someone has decided that your beautiful building looked like an open canvas that needed some creative decorating. Unfortunately, this happens all too often. Graffiti artists seem to be available in every city and they seem to believe that any open space is open game for their talents. Thankfully, the Concrete Décor Store has solutions for this problem.

Options for Controlling Graffiti

If you are worried about your building getting covered in graffiti, one thing you could do would be to put up increased lighting or security cameras. This could very well help out with the problem; regrettably, there are people that aren’t worried about being seen, and although the cameras may capture the event in progress and give you an idea of who the perpetrator is, the damage has already been done and you will end up paying to have the graffiti removed.

You could also try to put up fencing or creative plant placement, but there again, if you are dealing with a tenacious artist, these might be pretty feeble barriers.

Better Options

If you’re serious about keeping your building graffiti free, then the Concrete Décor Store has great options to help you achieve that goal. There are products available to fit your budget and to keep your storefront or building looking clean and professional. The Concrete Décor Store offers both sacrificial and non-sacrificial anti-graffiti coatings, both of which can help you keep your building clean.

Sacrificial Anti-Graffiti Coating

Sacrificial anti-graffiti coating is a temporary coating that is applied to your building. This coating acts as a barrier for the building and this allows the graffiti to be easily washed off. A sacrificial anti-graffiti coating dries quickly and can easily be reapplied time after time. According to Corrosionpedia, there are several benefits to using this type of coating:

  • it is environmentally friendly because it is mostly water based
  • it is breathable
  • it doesn’t affect how the building looks because it is clear upon application

Anti-Sacrificial Anti-Graffiti Coating

For a more permanent solution, the Concrete Décor Store also offers anti-sacrificial anti-graffiti coating. According to the Sherwin-Williams website, anti-sacrificial anti-graffiti coatings allow for repeated power-washing sessions and can withstand high temperatures, so that your building can be cleaned up again and again.

Call the Concrete Décor Store

Whether you decide to go with a sacrificial anti-graffiti coating or the more permanent anti-sacrificial option, there’s no decision to be made when deciding who to call to apply these coatings. The experts at the Concrete Décor Store can offer advice and quality workmanship. Give them a call today and keep your building clean and graffiti free!
