When it comes to your commercial space, you want to ensure it looks great. Having a fresh coat of paint on the walls is enough to invigorate the look of any space. If you’re currently looking to hire general contractors to paint your space, then here are a few tips to help you find the right ones to meet your needs.
Hiring Only Those Who Specialize In Commercial Application
When it comes to commercial painting services, not all general contractors are created equal. In fact, there are many large differences between residential painters and commercial ones. Commercial painters have the equipment and expertise to complete large scale projects quickly. Residential painters don’t. For this reason, you should only be hiring a firm that specializes in commercial paint application.
Make Sure They Have Insurance
As a general rule of thumb when hiring any sort of contractor, you need to ensure they have insurance. This way, they’re covered if one of their employees gets injured on sight or they damage your property. Apart from making sure they have an active insurance policy, you’ll want to verify how much it is for. If their insurance policy only covers $5,000, that’s not going to reasonably cover damage if say the floor needed replacing due to damage. So, pay attention to their policy maximums to ensure they are feasible in relation to the cost of your space and materials.
Look At Recommendations
Most commercial general contractors will have a website that shares images of their past jobs. Take some time to assess the website of potential hires and see what their finished work looks like. While you’re at it, be sure to check out their recommendations online. Places like Google and Yelp allow real people in your hometown to post comments about local businesses. Reading what real people say about potential hires is a great way to get a feel for how great a company is.
Get An Entire Written Estimate
Any professional general contractors will take the time to come out to your location before giving you a quote. Beware of companies who will shot out an estimate over the phone as they may tack on fees later on down the road. A good company will assess your actual space and needs before giving an estimate for the job. Be sure to get the estimate in writing so that everything is clearly defined. This estimate should also state the start and end dates of the project so you both clearly know what the timeframe is for the project.
