4 Key Steps To Choosing A Commercial Painter
Appearance and presentation are very important when it comes to business, so it’s important that your workplace gives off a positive, professional vibe. That includes the interior, decorative items, staff, and of course, the building itself. If you’re noticing cracks, splotches, and/or discolourations in the paintwork, it might be time to call in a professional. You always have the option of DIY work, but in the case of commercial buildings, this can actually be more trouble than its worth!
In these situations, how do you choose the perfect painting contractor for your building? It can be tricky to just pick one out, especially if you don’t know anything about them. Everyone’s after a high quality, longer last paint job. Before making your decision, consider a few key steps on how to pick the ideal commercial painting professional.
Testimonials – It’s always worthwhile asking for testimonials, even if you’re ready to go ahead. The painting company will always have a few customers they can put you in touch with so that you can get any feedback they may have. Of course, they’ll usually give you the details of customers they know got a good service and were happy with the work. So it doesn’t hurt to go a bit of fishing around yourself and possibly get in touch with other clients they may have had in the past.
Experience – The more experienced the painter, the more money they’re going to cost you. Keep in mind that price and quality workmanship are obviously in correlation with one another, so when choosing your commercial painter, it can be helpful to consider how long they’ve been in the business.
Quoting – When getting a quote, the painting company may come to your property for a site inspection. The way they handle themselves can you give you a good idea of how good a painter you are dealing with. Obviously, it’s difficult to generalize but if you receive a professional quote and someone that takes their job seriously, you can expect a higher quality finish.
Scheduling – The timeframe provided is also a consideration. Your painter should be able to give you an idea of when the job will start and end, given their other responsibilities and jobs. Ideally, you want to sign up with someone that can get the work done in time and in a way that won’t disrupt your day-to-day business operations.
These are some of the points you need to consider when choosing a solid painting company. If you feel we’ve missed something on this checklist, comment in the section below and let's start a conversation!
