 Painting Your Business: How to Choose a Commercial Painter

If you’re a build­ing own­er, facil­i­ty man­ag­er, or gen­er­al con­trac­tor, you want to work with a com­mer­cial paint­ing con­trac­tor who can meet your bud­get. But that’s not the only con­sid­er­a­tion. Your com­mer­cial painter should be able to meet your unique needs, and should nev­er cut cor­ners to get the job done right.

How to Choose the Right Com­mer­cial Painter

First Things First: Pri­or­i­ties and Scope

Before paint­ing your office, do your home­work by ask­ing some of these impor­tant ques­tions to find the right fit:

  • What are their pri­or­i­ties? Are they are a res­i­den­tial painter who also paints com­mer­cial spaces, or do they focus on busi­ness inte­ri­or and exte­ri­or paint­ing? Their pri­or­i­ties will also give you clues to their unique exper­tise, and whether or not it’s a match for what your busi­ness needs.
  • What’s the scope of your project? Do you need your busi­ness exte­ri­or paint­ed, paint­ing main­te­nance inside your office space, or both?
  • Do you need graf­fi­ti removal, or spe­cial­ized fix­es to issues with your paint job? This could include crack­ing, peel­ing, or mois­ture intru­sion, for example.
  • Do your office inte­ri­or or exte­ri­or spaces require spe­cial­ized coat­ings or treat­ments (such as elec­tro­sta­t­ic coat­ings)?
  • Does your paint­ing con­trac­tor meet rig­or­ous health and safe­ty stan­dards? Do they know how to meet the spe­cif­ic require­ments of your industry?

Com­pa­ny Cul­ture: Who Do You Want to Work With?

Even if a com­pa­ny is a good fit on paper, it’s impor­tant to know that you’ll have a good work­ing rela­tion­ship before bring­ing a paint­ing con­trac­tor on board. See what you can learn about their com­pa­ny cul­ture.

When you inter­view a paint­ing con­trac­tor, ask about their val­ues, their orga­ni­za­tion­al struc­ture, and what it’s like to work on their team. Learn about what their process is like. What can you expect as a client? What do you need to bring to the table?

Work­ing with a com­mer­cial painter you trust makes all the dif­fer­ence. They will under­stand your goals, respect your bud­get, meet your time­line, and make every effort to get the job done with­out inter­fer­ing with your sched­ule or harm­ing your productivity.

Ongo­ing Plan­ning and Support

While any painter is going to be com­mit­ted to excel­lence in their work, com­pa­nies have their own approach to project plan­ning, trou­bleshoot­ing, walk­throughs, and maintenance.

You can work with indi­vid­ual con­trac­tors for paint­ing, main­te­nance, and clean­ing, or you can work with one con­trac­tor to meet all those needs through­out the year. If you have gaps in your facil­i­ty main­te­nance plan, or if you strug­gle with meet­ing all those needs in house, you can work with a com­pa­ny that pro­vides ongo­ing paint­ing, clean­ing, and main­te­nance sup­port through­out the year.

Work­ing with Kaloutas means you work with a com­pa­ny with decades of expe­ri­ence in com­mer­cial paint­ing, indus­try-spe­cif­ic clean­ing, and facil­i­ty main­te­nance. From our first meet­ing, we’ll be clear on your expec­ta­tions, your bud­get, and your project time­line. We are com­mit­ted to get­ting the job done with no work stop­page and to help­ing you keep your busi­ness run­ning smooth­ly year-round. Request your com­mer­cial paint­ing esti­mate today to find out what we can do for you.
