Facility Manager's Guide to Commercial Painting

November 1, 2022

A customers first impression of your facility will affect their opinion of its services and goods, so it is important to maintain the interior and exterior aesthetic of your building. When your interior or exterior paint is chipped, peeling, or faded it can send the wrong message to your customers. As a facilities manager, it is imperative to maintain the paint on your building to ensure your businesses success. We know that choosing the right commercial painting contractor can be a difficult decision, and one you want to get right, especially considering the direct impact your facilities have on your company’s image. So, what should you be looking for? What questions should you ask? Let's explore this topic in detail.

First, when seeking a commercial painting contractor for your painting projects, look for a company that has been in business for a while and has proven results. The length of time a company has been in business and the number of commercial projects they have completed over the years is a good indicator of their experience and expertise. It also indicates that they are reputable and facilitate projects within the area(s) you are needing them.

Next, check the company’s reputation including its online presence, other companies it has worked for, and online reviews from the Better Business Bureau or Google.  Additionally, it is very important to ask the prospective commercial painting contractor for references from recently completed projects. These will allow you to reach out to those references to get unbiased feedback on the quality of work, customer service experience, and any other criteria that may be important to your decision-making process.

If you feel it is necessary and you can do so, visit the location of a recently completed painting project by the prospective painting company.  This observation of the final painting product provides firsthand knowledge of the quality of a completed painting project.

Finally, to prevent problems and legal liabilities, you should check to make sure that the painting contractor you select is completely insured with general liability and workers compensation insurance. Once you have confirmed that the commercial painting contractor meets these requirements, you are equipped to make an informed decision.

Now that we have covered some of the most critical elements of hiring the best commercial painter for your needs, it’s important to remember that a painting contractor is doing more than just painting your business.
