Although you may want to try to complete all of your commercial building improvements on your own, there are some tasks that will simply be beyond your area of expertise. For this and many reasons, it is smart to hire a commercial painting company like re:fab to take care of all the painting tasks that are not always easy to handle. Not all local painting companies are the same. Whether you’re looking to paint the interior of your office building or need to revamp the outside of a multi-story commercial building, our painting experts at re:fab can assist. Here are a few things we think you should consider when painting your business and hiring a commercial painting contractor:
Price: You want to save as much money as possible, but not at the expense of getting low quality work. Be sure to ask for a free and comprehensive estimate for the scope of your project including all materials, labor and applicable taxes. When getting bids from multiple companies, be sure you are comparing “apples to apples” and that the quotes are inclusive of all potential costs associated with the project. Follow this up with a call to the Better Business Bureau to learn more about the company and their reputation.
Expertise: Speaking of the Better Business Bureau, when considering a commercial painting contactor be sure the company is licensed and insured. A quality firm would be happy to provide you with any certificates and documents needed to satisfy those requirements. Not all states require licensing, so if that’s the case be sure to ask for references.
Staff: Whenever you are having work done inside your home or business, it is important to know who will be working and their competency level. Are these workers from a temporary agency with little to no painting experience? Or, are you receiving workers who are knowledgeable, trained painters that have been with the company for years. Again, references are great.
Timeliness: Always consider how long the project is expected to take and ask for an estimated completion date. Be sure you know how long the company will be onsite and what they will do to ensure your business can still operate while work is being completed. Will there be after hours work?
Materials: What type of materials will be selected for your project? How will these materials stand the test of time on your specific application? Can the company help you in the selection of appealing colors and finishes for your specific clientele?
