Hire a Painter With Great Skills Some of the qualities you want to look for in a commercial painter is how many years of experience they have in commercial painting. Most painters who have more than three years of experience will more than likely be able to deliver you quality service. A really good painter will know all about applying certain painting techniques for different surfaces. They also need to have a lot of experience in painting different types of offices, malls, hotels, towers, and apartments. By hiring a painter that has a lot of experience in the commercial world is going to give you a lot of peace of mind that the job will be done well. It’s always a good idea to ask those you talk to, to give you a list of their completed projects in their portfolio and also ask how many clients were satisfied with the work. This is why it’s important to always ask for references so that you can call them yourself and verify their work. Find Out About Their Reputation in the Community It’s really important that you research a commercial painters reputation and you can easily do that by simply going online and gather up information about them when you read the various online reviews from previous customers. The more you know about their background the more confidence you’ll have in choosing just the right painter for the job that you need to have done. Where is the Commercial Painter Located? The best thing you can do is to hire a commercial painter that’s pretty close to the location of your office or business. If you’re in a hurry to find a painter it’s important that you don’t overlook where they are located. By finding a painter near where you’re located is going to keep you from wasting time with a painter that might be too far away from your business. If you have a painter that’s close at hand it will also cut down on too much disruption within your office or business. How Good is Customer Communication? It’s important to take note on how quick or slow the painter is to reply to all of the questions you might have. Do they also tell you what you should expect with the painting project? A good quality professional painter will be in the habit of making sure there is good communication with their customers at all times. This is probably one of the more important factors you should take into account when hiring a commercial painter. When you get in touch with a painter by email or phone, you really should get a fast response to your inquiry. Also look for politeness during communication, if they are polite and treat you with respect, you are more than likely going to get far better service. If any painter that you talk to seems to hesitate or is reluctant to answer some of your questions, or is unwilling to give you information you’re looking for, your best bet is to move on and find someone else. Make Sure They’re Insured and Licensed Before even thinking of hiring a commercial painter, it’s extremely important that you find out if they are insured, those working for them are also insured, and if they have all the licensing that your area might require. Not all areas have the same licensing requirements so make sure you know what the requirements are prior to interviewing commercial painters. Someone who isn’t licensed or insured could end up costing you a lot more money because of any possible accidents or damage they might cause. So, it’s far better to make sure you hire someone licensed and insured. Make Sure You’re Getting a Fair Price It’s very important that you know what the entire cost of the project is going to cost you. You need to consider the cost of the job you need done when you are hiring a commercial painter. This is why it’s important that you get the cost information during your interview with any prospective painter. It’s important to discuss the kind of service you want in order to get an accurate price for the job. Make sure that you get it in writing whether it’s just an estimate or if they give you a total cost for the entire job.
