As you look for contractors to paint your commercial building, there are some things you should keep in mind. Before you settle on the final job, be sure to take care of these three things.
Before you speak with the contractor, create a full statement of work that outlines everything you expect to happen and when. This might include which area you want to have painted, what type of preparation you expect to happen, the finish you want on your surface, any restrictions or special considerations, and a requested deadline. If there are certain aspects you don’t have all the information on, that’s okay, just include the basic idea and discuss the details with your contractor.
Before you hire a painting contractor, show them your statement of work and discuss the costs associated with your expectations and requests. Don’t assume that just because one contractor offers you a lower cost, he or she is the best contractor for the job. Sometimes a higher cost means higher quality. You can learn what is best by having this conversation.
Throughout your painting project, you’ll want a way to stay in contact with your contractor. If he or she has questions in the middle of the job and you aren’t on-site at the moment, you’ll want to be sure he or she can get a hold of you right away. If you think of something you want changed, you’ll want to be able to call the contractor immediately.
