5 Benefits of Hiring a Professional Commercial Painter

If your business is considering remodeling or refurbishing its offices, retail spaces, warehouses, or other commercial buildings, it can be tempting to simply hire the professionals with the lowest quotes. However, when it comes to something so critical to the end appearance of a major investment like a remodeling project as painting is, you don't want to cut corners. While there may be plenty of companies or handymen-style contractors who are willing to paint your commercial space on the cheap, it makes a lot more sense to hire a painter qualified to work on a project of that scale. When you see the finished results, you'll be glad you made the investment and that you chose to work with a real professional, not just a jack of all trades who happened to own a few paint rollers.

It's all about skills. Commercial painters have the experience and the skills to ensure a uniform and professional appearance to your finished space, whether they're painting a warehouse exterior or the interior of a 10,000 square foot office building. The coverage, color, and texture should appear the same throughout, which is something that can be difficult to achieve without years of experience working with paint in commercial settings.

Commercial painters do it faster. If you need to paint the entire interior of your office building over a weekend to ensure you aren't losing employee productivity to paint smell or distractions, hiring a well-respected commercial paint crew, like the team at Cooper Painting, is the surest way to ensure your project is completed in a timely manner. Independent contractors are notoriously unreliable, often arriving hours or even days late to a firmly set appointment. Beyond that, when they start work, the size of their crew and their experience level may serve to slow them down, resulting in a sizable bill because of the number of hours involved. If you want it done right and done on time, a commercial painter team is your best option.

Commercial painters can save you money. From those many additional hours you would have to pay an unskilled painter or team for to the supplies that are required to perform the job, commercial painters can actually save you money. While their rates may seem higher than the rates quoted by your neighbor who painted his own garage last summer, they can probably save you a lot of money in supplies, time, and wasted paint. An unskilled or untrained painter will struggle to adequately estimate the amount of paint required to fully cover the space. Given discrepancies in paint mixing from batch to batch, they will probably over purchase paint and pass that expense on to your company. Commercial painters know how to estimate their needs without going too far above what is required and they can keep the prices of the paint and supplies lower because of the quantity they purchase.

You can trust commercial painters. Most business owners and managers don't have the time or inclination to sit around with their painters and, quite literally, watch the paint dry. Instead, they will hire the painters to do the work when their business is closed and there are no employees, clients, or customers around. This probably means that the painting crew will have access to your building and your assets with minimal direct oversight. Unlike hourly-hire handymen-style workers, commercial painters depend on word of mouth, online reviews, and reputation to drive their business. They won't abide by employees stealing from their clients or damaging client property. It's anyone's guess what the policy on employee behavior will be if you hire a crew without a business license or billing address. 

Commercial painters have the best equipment. From sprayer applicators and carpet protection to on-site paint mixers and air purification systems to remove that “just painted” smell, commercial painters have likely invested heavily in the newest and best equipment to get the job done quickly and professionally. That equipment, in turn, allows commercial painters to provide you with the uniform coverage, tone, and texture you want in your freshly painted spaces, while also keeping the time required to paint the space to a minimum.

If your business is in the market to repaint its offices, warehouses, manufacturing building, or other commercial space, it just makes sense to hire commercial painters. Commercial painters come to the table with the equipment, reputation, and expertise you can trust and will leave you with a finished space that reflects the quality of their work. Nothing looks more unprofessional than a poorly-applied paint job. From bleed-throughs and visible brush marks on a matte wall to inconsistent application of color from one end of a space to another, there are many things that can go wrong with unskilled painters, leaving your business with a space that may have looked better before it was renovated.
