Selecting a commercial painter
You may have a vision for your business, but it won’t come to life without the right paint job. Painting is an essential part of any business’s outward appearance and can have a huge impact on your customers’ experience. But finding the right commercial painter can be challenging. We’ve put together some tips for choosing wisely:
What to consider when hiring a commercial painting company
When it comes to painting, there are many differences between residential and commercial painting. When you’re hiring a commercial painter, be sure to ask about:
- The company’s experience in the industry.
- The types of paints they use.
- Whether or not they have professional liability insurance.
That way you can rest assured you’re working with experts who know how to handle your job safely and effectively!
Does the company have a good reputation?
When it comes to selecting a commercial painter, your first step should be to find out if the company has a good reputation. There are several ways you can do this:
- Check reviews and ratings online. Look for sites that allow customers to submit reviews of their experiences with specific businesses. If you have friends or family in the area, ask them if they have used any local painting companies and what their experiences were like.
- Check with the Better Business Bureau (BBB). The BBB is an independent organization that rates businesses on factors such as customer satisfaction, trustworthiness and integrity, commitment to fair business practices, timeliness of delivery and responsiveness when problems occur. You can search for an accredited business through the BBB website at bbb.org/us/.
- Ask for references from other local businesses that have hired this commercial painting contractor in the past—for example: “Do you know other small businesses who’ve worked with [NAME OF COMPANY]?” Or “Who else do you think would be a good choice for painting?”
Is the company experienced?
A good painter will have experience with your type of business and the building you need painted. Look for someone who has experience with the same kind of paint job (new construction, remodel, etc.) that you need done at your facility.
If you’re in a particular area, check out how long they’ve been working there. You may want to hire someone who has been around for a while because they know what works best in your community and they could save money on purchasing supplies as well as labor costs by dealing with fewer vendors or suppliers than an inexperienced painter would require.
How much will the commercial painting cost?
The cost of commercial painting can vary depending on the size of your building, as well as the type of paint used, the type of surface being painted and how many coats are required. While most contractors will give you an estimate for your project, it’s best to get at least three quotes from different contractors before making a decision.
Does the company have professional liability insurance?
Another important question to ask is whether the company has professional liability insurance. Liability insurance is vital for commercial painters, especially if you’re going to be providing them with access to your property. It protects the company from lawsuits, but it also safeguards it against getting sued by you or a third party who holds them responsible for property damage or injury on your property.
Can the company offer references?
Before you sign on the dotted line, ask to see the work they have done. Also, ask them how long they have been in business. You should also ask if they are insured and if they carry any liability insurance.
Be sure to inquire about their references as well!
Commercial painters can make your business look better, but it helps to find the right one
Before you hire a commercial painter, it’s important to investigate their background. Look for companies that have experience working in your industry, as well as references from previous clients. If the company is insured, even better! You will want to ensure that the work you pay for is covered by insurance should anything go wrong with it during or after the job has been completed.
When hiring a commercial painter, ask about their pricing and whether or not there are any hidden fees involved in addition to what was agreed upon initially. If they don’t give you an honest answer right away, do some research on your own before proceeding further with negotiations or hiring them outright!
