Finding the right commercial painter for your facility is a hassle. Getting quotes, making sure the painter is the right one for the job, hoping they will use the right materials and that they do the job completely and correctly – the first time, can lead to a lot of stress. Using these tips can make that process go a lot smoother:
Word of Mouth
Use your connections in the community to find the best option. Do online research to find the company that most closely would be able to match your budgetary needs. Also, look online for good reviews by other business owners, friends, and online reviewers.
Get Estimates from a Few Contractors
Usually about three should do the trick. Take these contractors through the project and interview them asking of their qualifications, references, and what products they ordinarily use for their projects. If they are able to confidently answer your questions and provide quality references, then it can help you make your final decision.
Speaking of References; Check Them
Speak to the references you are given directly. If it were at all possible it would be a great idea to visit the references to see their work in person and discover how it has held up over time.
When speaking to each contractor it is best to walk him or her through the property and discuss your needs for each area that will need to be painted. Be specific during this process and include every surface that you want painted. It also is helpful if you have the paint colors and finishes you want used already picked out.
Last but Not Least Review the Contract
Once you’ve settled on a contractor make sure you get the following in writing;
- * Paint colors for each area to be painted
- * What exactly is being painted
- * Details on prep and cleanup
- * How the contractor will protect the surrounding areas
- * Total cost for the project
- * When and how the contractor will be paid
- * Time frame for the project
Doing a little work on your end will make hiring the best commercial painter a breeze and help ensure 100% satisfaction with the end result
