commercial painting project

Getting commercial painting work done is a big investment. And a good quality paint job will do wonders for your property or building by adding value. 

So it’s important to make sure you are getting a company that knows exactly what to do, even more so when it comes to industrial or commercial painting. Both require specialist knowledge and experience. 

Don’t automatically choose a company for the cheapest price. There are plenty of factors to take into consideration – especially if you want a high-quality long-lasting finish.

If you are looking at investing in commercial painting ask and consider these questions to ensure you are getting the best company possible.

Do you offer free quotes?

You should always get quotes before accepting services from a company. And the cheapest option is not always the best option. Getting a range of quotes can help you compare the services you are getting for your cost or budget.

  • Is preparation work included?
  • Is travel included?
  • What products and materials are included?

What experience and training do you have?

Experience, skills, and training are so important. A good company will be happy to give you details of their experience and training/. This will give you the confidence you have chosen a company that knows what they are doing. Commercial painting is a big investment, and can potentially add thousands of dollars to the value of your property or building. If you are going to invest in a professional service you want to make sure that the job will be of high quality. 

Ask to see examples of their work in commercial painting

This is another great way to help you decide on a commercial painting services company. A reputable and respected company will have plenty of examples they will be able to show you.  

Who would be managing my project?

It is great to put faces to names and potentially meet with the person who would be managing your painting project. This can help you work through any concerns or particular questions you have about your building or commercial space. 

Tip: Make sure you note down any areas of concern or speciality requirements that your business may have before you do meet with a painting company.

What painting preparation will be needed?

This is an important question to ask, as a quality commercial painting company will be able to provide you with detailed information about the proposed job.

In many commercial and industrial industries, it can be a challenge to have work completed, while still managing your operations. An experienced painting company will be able to work around your operations with as little disruption as possible.

How long will it take to complete?

Knowing how long a paint job will take to complete can help you plan your business activities around it too. Interestingly, every professional painting service can have different time frames to complete your painting job. It’s best to discuss this with the painting companies, that way you can make sure that you’re not left with any surprises.

Do you offer any workmanship guarantees?

Professional painters will stand by their work. A reputable commercial painting service company will be able to give you more details in writing if there is something you aren’t happy with. 

Do you have insurance?

All commercial painting companies should be covered by liability insurances. This is non-negotiable and very important in case something unexpected happens or goes wrong. A good company will be able to provide details of what it is covered should anything go wrong.

Every business should consider Public Liability Insurance – even home-based businesses. It covers you and your employees for potential liabilities if your products or services cause property damage. – BizCover NZ

Looking for an industrial or commercial painting service?

While these are important questions to consider when looking for a professional painting company, there are also a few other factors to consider. You want your whole project to be as stress-free as possible. Once you have your shortlist of businesses and you’re still not sure which one to choose, consider their presentation during the initial process.

How did they present themselves and how well did they communicate with you?

Communication is key during painting jobs, and being kept up to date with the progress of the job is really important. 

Good communication can definitely be a make or break when deciding on a company.
