Best Practices in Hiring a Commercial Painting Contractor 2023
Posted Feb 27, 2023 by Dave Scaturro
Preparing for any painting project can feel like an endeavor - from the prep work to the application - but even before the paint hits the surface, there are a number of factors to consider about the contractor you use for your commercial or industrial paint job.
As a family-owned company with more than four decades of experience, we’ve had the opportunity to work on a variety of projects in the painting space. Here are some key best practices we suggest looking out for when hiring for your next project:
Safety is first on the list because it should be a contractor’s top priority for any project they take on. This protects both you and anyone who will be present at your job site and saves you both time and money.
Here at Alpine, safety is a belief and a process that we evaluate every day, on every single job, to prevent injuries and protect our valuable team and customers. Learn more about our approach to safety, how we support our team members, and the recognition we’ve received in this space.
Making a decision like choosing a painting contractor on your own can be a large undertaking. We suggest creating a team of decision-makers for your project who can help evaluate potential contractors from the offset and help with the many moving parts that come with contracting projects. Once you’ve chosen a contractor you trust, they should become part of your team of decision-makers and provide help and guidance on how to complete your project safely, on time, and within budget.
Knowledge of Products & Applications
You’re hiring a painting contractor for the value of their experience on the job and with the projects they use. Anyone you hire should have an understanding of the surfaces you’re working with, and how to properly prepare them and apply products. They should also be able to provide you with recommendations on the best products to use to ensure your paint job is durable and long-lasting, whether it’s inside or outside for a commercial or industrial project.
