Keeping your business looking neat and professional is very important. The colors you pick for your exterior and interior need to send a great message to customers as well as those interested in being part of your business ventures. Yet you don’t have to with just white. You can pick other colors and even add a variety of designs or murals to make it come to life.
Finding the right commercial painter to complete this work for you is very important. You need to know they have the right skills and they are able to get the work done in a short period. You don’t want your business to be interrupted due to the work they need to do.
Typically, they can take care of the bulk of the work after hours so they aren’t bothering your customers or getting in the way. However, not all businesses close in the evening or close on the weekends. If your business is open 7 days a week, you will need to work out a plan of action with them. Most commercial painter businesses strive to be accommodating.
Once you decide on your provider to do the work inside and outside of the business, they can get started with the prep work. This involves getting the surface ready for the paint. Depending on the structure of your building, they may need to scrape away the older paint to give a nice surface for the new pain to adhere to.
The prep work completed by a commercial painter needs to include any repairs to the walls inside and to make sure they block off areas that aren’t going to be painted. This can include windows, business machines, and anything that happens to be around the place. They may need to move some furniture to reach the walls and ceilings in the business.
It isn’t uncommon for all the prep work to be first. Then the painting can be done in sections. However, it may be better for them to prep and then paint a given section of the business first so they aren’t interruption the normal flow of business. It will depend on how long the work is going to take and other factors.
The commercial painter can discuss with you the various options and tell you what they feel would be the best solution. If you have any certain requests or questions, you need to ask them before they get started. Once you are in agreement of what they will do and when they will do it, they can complete that prep work and get busy painting.
If the provider has a crew, they can actually have both going on at the same time. Some of the employees will prep areas while others come along behind them and paint those areas. The prep crew will start first to stay ahead of the painting crew. Find out how many coats of paint they will offer for the project.
It is typical to add a primer coat and then at least two coats of paint on top of it. However sometimes a commercial painter will apply a paint that has primer in it so they can skip that first step. The number of coats of paint often depends on the quality of it. Better paint can be used to complete the project with fewer coats.
It is a good idea to ask the commercial painter about their crew, their qualifications, and the types of equipment they will use to get the job done. Many of them have high-tech equipment so it allows them to get the painting completed in less time. It also allows them to offer a professional look when it is all done.
