Commercial Painting Safety
Painting can be hazardous work, whether it’s working on a ladder or dealing with solvents and dust. Hiring a professional painting contractor means you don’t have to worry about these challenges.

Your Health & Painting
If your home or business was built before 1978, it may have been painted with lead-based paint, which can cause serious health effects when it is scraped or sanded in preparation for repainting. Professional contractors will take appropriate steps to protect you, your pets, and furnishings.
Preparation and Painting
Getting the surface properly prepared makes all the difference. As a professional painting contractor we know the value of preparation and will do it right. In the long run proper preparation may take longer but ensures the quality of the craftsmanship.
Knowing Paints & Best Applications
The choices today are more complicated than just oil or latex, and as a professional painting contractor we will know what works, how to use it, and will have the right tools for the job. Professional painting contractors utilize and partner with professional paint, coatings, suppliers, and keep abreast of all the newest innovations in painting technology.
Written Contracts Protect Your Company
Reputable commercial painting contractors will encourage the use of a written contract. This contract should clearly explain the scope of the work to be performed. It should also cover such items as surfaces to be painted, methods and extent of surface preparation, time schedules for the project, and payment terms.
Knowing the total scope of the work enables you to carefully evaluate the different bids you may receive with the proper information and keep them on a level playing field. The contract serves to protect both you and the contractor.
Invest Time in Verifying References
Obtain a list of references from your prospective commercial painting contractor; we are more than happy to provide our clients with references. This list should include the contact person, address, and telephone number of their references.
Follow up on this list with a phone call. Remember, the contractor will not give you a bad reference. Therefore, ask references if they know of any other work this contractor has performed. Be sure to ask whether the contractor and employees treated you professionally and with respect. The references you are interested in should be projects similar in size and scope to yours. Also, some of the projects should be at least a few years old. This will help you gauge the performance of the construction and materials used. If possible, try to see the work that was done.
