Case Study: My Experience With Companies

How to Hire a Commercial Painter If you want to restyle your office, warehouse or other any other commercial structure, hire the services of a professional painting contractor. This person will be able to understand and meet your needs best. Then again, not all commercial painters are created equal, so there are a few guidelines you must observe to find the right tradie for the job. Comparison Shopping
Interesting Research on Services – What No One Ever Told You
You can look for painting contractors in three ways: word-of-mouth, approaching local paint stores, and scanning reputable, independent online review sites. Start by comparing at least three contractors. Any estimate that seems too good to be true, could be illegal or may come with a catch.
Getting Creative With Experts Advice
License and Insurance Verification There are states in which painting contractors need a license to operate, such as in California. This isn’t the case in Texas and most other parts of the country. If you hire a painter illegally, you forfeit all your right to recover money for any promises that go unfulfilled. Large-scale contractors must be able to give you a certificate of insurance, along with all necessary bonding, safety and compliance information for their workers. Definitely, a contractor who is part of a local or national trade association is an even worthier prospect. Invitation and Interview Yes, it’s important to invite the contractor where you need the work to be done. Tell them everything you want them to paint on, such as the trim, molding, cabinets, etc., and everything you want to protect, like plants in your garden, your furniture, etc. Ask all the right questions. What type of paint are you going to use? How many coats? How are you going to fix gaffe spills? What PPE (personal protection equipment) will you use? How many years have you been in business? Do you pay your crew hourly or are they sub-contracted? If the contractor hesitates or seems defensive, consider it a warning. Talking to References Everyone can set up their own fan club. Don’t depend too much on social media. Certainly, they’re important, but you need to put in a little more effort by actually talking to references and checking their Better Business Bureau Records. In Black and White Sometimes, it pays to be paranoid, especially when you’re hiring a service professional such as a painter. Before you get on with the project, have everything listed in a written contract, including: > prep and cleanup arrangements; > which surfaces must be painted in which colors; > project start and end dates; > warranties; and > how much the contractor will be paid, the schedule as well as the mode of payment. Trusting Your Intuition Sometimes, you just have to listen to your gut when you interview and discuss your project with a prospective contractor. Was the guy courteous and on time for your appointment? Did you feel his sincerity or was it like he was just after your money? Don’t think these things don’t matter because they are usually signals.
