A Guide to Planning Your Commercial Painting Project

A Guide to Planning Your Commercial Painting Project

Posted By

Painting your building is a great way to bring personality to it. A fresh coat of paint can work wonders for your workplace, helping create a positive work environment and giving your business a welcome facelift. It can give your interior and exterior surfaces a new lease of life!

Commercial painting projects are not as straightforward and simple as residential painting projects and typically have a wider scope. Everything should be planned down to the last detail to reduce the chances of costly errors. Effective planning reduces wastage, prevents cost overruns, and improves project ROI.

Follow these tips to ensure everything goes according to the plan.

Select a Contractor For Your Project

There are several differences between residential painting and commercial painting in Healdsburg. You cannot hire a residential painting contractor for a commercial painting project.

Commercial painting projects are usually more complex than residential projects. A residential painting contractor’s team is not trained to manage commercial painting projects. The inherent complexities of a commercial project can overwhelm a residential painting contractor.

Look for a seasoned commercial painting contractor with the skills and expertise required to develop customized solutions.

Talk to fellow business owners who have just completed a painting project and ask them if they’d use their contractor for future projects. Do your homework. Visit contractors’ websites and take a look at their portfolio to assess their know-how and skills.

When considering a contractor, find out what their customers are talking about them. Visit reliable third-party review websites such as Yelp, Yellow Pages, and BBB to check customer testimonials and reviews about the business.

Be sure to check if the contractor you are considering offers the services you need. Look for an insured and licensed contractor. If you choose an uninsured contractor for your project and someone on their team gets injured on your property, you may be held liable for damages.

Choose the Right Color and Finish

The importance of the right paint color and finish cannot be overemphasized. Choose a color that communicates your brand’s values accurately. Use shades of blue, green, yellow, and purple to improve employee productivity and morale.

Look for colors that evoke emotions. When choosing a color scheme, consider the nature of your business and what colors help encapsulate your business’s culture. 

Notify Stakeholders

When painting a surface, any extra paint can drop on the floor, and it may get slippery. Someone can slip, trip, or fall and sustain injuries while walking on a slippery floor. Share your plan with employees, business partners, and customers through emails.

In your communications, talk about the precautions they need to take. Install signage to warn people about any slip hazards.
