Three Suggestions to Consider When Hiring a Commercial Painting Company

The way your company presents itself to the public sends a subliminal message to potential clients and patrons. A well-kept business exterior tells the world you have pride and self-respect. It says you care for and take care of your company and its employees and want others to be part of your experience no matter what line of business you are in.

It is important to ensure that the exterior painting company you retain is competent and knowledgeable about all aspects of the exterior painting business. What follows are three suggestions to follow when looking for the right commercial painting company to meet your needs.

  • Review the companies that specialize in commercial exterior painting in your area. Whittle it down to no more than half a dozen that sound the most promising. Then take the time to research their credentials. Look for other organizations that have used each company’s services and find out their level of satisfaction. All things need to be taken into consideration including price, quality and time. Get more than one review and don’t always trust reviews you read on line. Take the time to contact one or two reviewers and get their insight first-hand.
  • A truly seasoned and professional exterior painting company will be able to come in and size up the job you need and find areas where resources can be maximized to save you money in the end. You want a company that will value their own business assets of time, money and resources to the same extent you do. You must beware of companies that will offer a low-ball bid only to come back later and tack on the cost of ‘extras’ that should be part of the job! Or, perhaps you chose a commercial exterior painting company that offered a decent price but in the end will not meet deadlines. Quality and professionalism exists in every business – look for it in your commercial paint company.
  • Ask for a safety plan upfront that is tailored to your particular job site. This helps to ensure that the professional commercial paint company has put in the proper time and thought to research your job in advance of its start date.  You don’t want to find out in the middle of the job that the company is unfamiliar with OSHA standards and that you could be liable for an accident.
