Commercial Painters in Philadelphia

A fresh coat of paint is a great way to revitalize your business and make a good impression on customers and clients. Whether you’re repainting the exterior or interior of your commercial space, there are a few things you should do to prepare for the project. Our painting experts at AW Painting & General Contractors share their top tips for commercial painting preparation.

1. Choose the Right Paint

Not all paint is created equal. When selecting paint for your commercial space, be sure to choose a high-quality product that is specifically designed for commercial use. This type of paint is typically more durable and can withstand heavy traffic and wear and tear. It’s also important to select a paint color that is appropriate for your business. For example, if you’re repainting a restaurant, you’ll want to choose a color that is inviting and makes diners feel comfortable.

2. Inform Your Workers and Customers

While we do our best to minimize the disruption to your normal operating hours, it’s important to inform your workers and customers that you’ll be repainting. This way, they can plan accordingly and avoid any inconvenience. We recommend posting signs in prominent areas to let everyone know about the upcoming project. If you need to adjust your business hours for any reason, be sure to include that information in your signage as well.

3. Remove All Wall Decor

Before our painters arrive, be sure to remove all wall decor, including pictures, paintings, and posters. This will help us get a clean surface to work with and ensure that your decor doesn’t get damaged in the process. We also recommend removing any furniture or other items from the area that will be painted. This will make it easier for us to paint and will help protect your belongings from any paint fumes or debris.

4. Make Any Necessary Repairs

If there are any cracks, holes, or other damage to your walls, now is the time to make the necessary repairs. Our painters can patch up small holes and cracks, but more substantial damage will need to be repaired before we begin painting. This will ensure that your new paint job looks its best and lasts for many years to come.

5. Clean the Area Thoroughly

Before our painters arrive, we recommend giving the area a good cleaning. This will help the paint adhere better and will also give our painters a clean surface to work with. Be sure to dust all surfaces, vacuum any carpets or rugs, and wash any windows.

“AW painting is an extremely professional and reliable business. Their workers are dependable and very accommodating to our needs and requirements. Their office staff is second to none. They are constantly going above and beyond to do everything in their power to fill my painting needs. I am the Maintenance supervisor of a high rise apartment building, and have dealt with many different painting contractors, but AW has definitely earned the largest bulk of my business. I would recommend them to anyone looking for work to be done on their property.”
