Posted Jun 11, 2019 by Dave Scaturro
We know that you know a commercial painting project is a big job that you want done RIGHT the first time. An excellent paint job can help your retail store/building stand out and make your company look better to visiting customers. But, not all painting companies are the same though.There are certain questions you should always ask before you decide which company to hire for your important project. They are as follows:
What Experience Do They Have?
You wouldn’t hire an employee without looking at his or her resume, so don’t think you can hire a painting company without researching their background. Ask what kind of experience they have and how long they have been in business. Don’t be afraid to ask for references, check online reviews or view their portfolio.
Do they belong to any Professional Trade Associations?
A contractor who is a member of a Professional trade association shows they are interested in learning new technology and trade best practices. Choose a contractor who is a engages in their industry by affiliating with the PDCA, SSPC or NACE.
Are They Licensed and Insured?
If the answer is no, you probably shouldn't hire them. Licensed painting contractors are more qualified because they have met a set of guidelines set forth by the state. Having insurance is of the utmost importance because it protects you from being liable for the workers.
What Type of Paint Do They Use?
Not all paint is the same. Going with less expensive paint can be tempting, but it may end up costing you more money in the long run. Lower quality paints will most likely not last as long. Find out what type of painting products the company uses and why. Do they use any special sealants? Look up reviews on the brands they use. Don’t automatically assume that it is good quality just because it is more expensive.
What Type of Payment Plan Do They Offer?
Some companies may require all or most of the payment up front. Others will let you pay in installments. Find a company that will work with your needs. You will also need to know if the cost will change if the job takes longer than expected. Have a plan in place ahead of time to avoid any conflict down the road.
