 Why Professional Painters Decrease Costs and Liability

You know paint­ing main­te­nance for your com­mer­cial space is impor­tant. But it can some­times be tempt­ing to take mat­ters into your own hands and do it your­self in the name of get­ting the job done quick­ly and keep­ing costs low.

The truth is, a DIY approach to paint­ing the inte­ri­or or exte­ri­or of your office build­ing or indus­tri­al space is often more cost­ly, both in the short-term and in the long run. Hir­ing a pro­fes­sion­al paint­ing con­trac­tor is more like­ly to keep both costs and lia­bil­i­ty low­er over time, mak­ing it a bet­ter invest­ment in your business.

Unin­tend­ed Costs of DIY

You may have paint and primer for a DIY job in your bud­get, but there are unin­tend­ed costs that come with doing com­mer­cial paint­ing jobs in-house – even for patch jobs.

  • Work inter­rup­tions: Unless you have your own ded­i­cat­ed team of painters, someone’s work is going to be inter­rupt­ed through­out the time spent paint­ing your business.
  • Mis­takes: Mis­takes in how the sur­face is prepped and primed, whether or not it’s dried prop­er­ly or com­plete­ly between appli­ca­tions, and lack of even­ness in appli­ca­tion are some of the most com­mon caus­es of pre­ventable paint­ing main­te­nance. These mis­takes could result in fur­ther work stop­page and more spend­ing down the line since paint­ing bud­gets typ­i­cal­ly don’t account for the time, mon­ey, and man­pow­er that it costs to cor­rect mistakes.
  • Knowl­edge Gaps: Even if your main­te­nance or jan­i­to­r­i­al team knows basic paint appli­ca­tion tech­niques, they may not have the insid­er knowl­edge it takes to find the best coat­ings and sur­face treat­ment for your unique field and indus­try require­ments.
  • Quick Fix­es: A quick fix or patch job done in-house is less like­ly to match the col­or, fin­ish, and over­all integri­ty of your exist­ing paint job. That makes a poor impres­sion on employ­ees, cus­tomers, and clients. Plus, dis­col­oration or mis­ap­pli­ca­tion could cause big­ger prob­lems down the road, such as cracks and blis­ters on the sur­face, or mois­ture damage.

Pro­fes­sion­al Painters Can Help

Hir­ing pro­fes­sion­al painters is the eas­i­est way to avoid the prob­lems and has­sles of DIY paint­ing. Pro­fes­sion­al painters under­stand the root caus­es behind many of the paint­ing issues you see on the sur­face. They know how to solve prob­lems with paint fin­ish­es and how to low­er the chances that those issues will hap­pen again. They can rec­om­mend lev­el­ing tech­niques, antimi­cro­bial and anti­fun­gal paints, and more to keep your employ­ees safe.

  • Exper­tise: Pro­fes­sion­al painters must meet rig­or­ous stan­dards for paint­ing cer­ti­fi­ca­tions and cre­den­tials, so their knowl­edge base (and their best prac­tices for health and safe­ty) stay cur­rent. Work­ing with a con­trac­tor you trust keeps your facil­i­ty and your employ­ees safer and health­i­er in the long run.
  • Insur­ance: Since pro­fes­sion­al painters are insured and under con­tract with your busi­ness, the oblig­a­tion of com­plet­ing a safe, high-qual­i­ty, and long-last­ing paint job is pri­mar­i­ly theirs. You can focus on doing busi­ness and serv­ing your cus­tomers, while pro­fes­sion­al painters take care of the rest.
  • Flex­i­bil­i­ty: Paint­ing pro­fes­sion­als can work around your sched­ule so that get­ting their job done won’t inter­fere with your doing business.
  • Ongo­ing Main­te­nance: Depend­ing on which painter you work with, and the terms of your con­tract, your paint­ing team could be avail­able to plan and com­plete ongo­ing paint­ing main­te­nance. This is a great way to extend the over­all life of your office inte­ri­or or exte­ri­or paint job, so it’s less like­ly you’ll need an unex­pect­ed and cost­ly paint­ing over­haul down the road.
