Questions You Should Always Ask Before Hiring a Commercial Painter

Commercial Painters

Paint jobs often make or break the way a building looks, which is why it’s important that it’s done right the first time. A sloppy paint job simply makes your commercial building look seedy and unprofessional, and having it redone costs time and money. It’s essential that you always properly vet a commercial painter before making a commitment to hiring them, and part of this process requires asking the right questions. Following are four questions you should make sure to ask painting companies.

How Much Experience Do You Have?

It’s usually best to go with a company that has significant experience in your community. Although newer companies may offer substantial discounts as a way of attracting business, trusting the outward appearance of your commercial building may not be wise. Furthermore, if they’ve got experience in your community, you can easily obtain references from other customers and even see examples of their work.

Do You Carry the Proper Credentials and Insurance?

Never hire a contractor of any type unless they are properly licensed and carry insurance. Insurance provides you with protection in the event of worker injury, and licensing ensures that they’ve passed applicable exams and follow state and federal regulations.

What Are the Types of Paint That You Use?

Low quality paint may result in short-term savings, but it has long-term costs — but keep in mind that just because a certain type of paint is more expensive doesn’t mean it’s necessarily superior to the competition.  Ask the company for the specific names of the brands they use, and search for reviews of those brands online.

What Kind of Payment Plans Do You Have?

Some painting contractors provide customers with the option of making installment payments, while others require that all costs be paid in advance. Finding a company that works with your individual needs and preferences is essential, so don’t hesitate to ask for specifics about payment plans. You also need to ask for clarity concerning any potential hidden costs. For instance, does the company charge more if the jobs lasts longer than they estimated?
