Key Considerations when Choosing a Commercial Painter

Posted December 6, 2019

Choosing your commercial painter is an important decision, and there are a number of key factors that you should take into account to ensure that your commercial painting project is carried out professionally, quickly and using the best quality paints, products and coatings.

Like any professional contractor, good painters are highly skilled and experts in their field, however not all painters are created equal. These are some of the things you should consider ahead of finalising your decision on who you will trust to carry out your project.

1. Is Your Commercial Painter Qualified?

Like any trade professional there are certain qualifications and registrations that are a requirement for a painter to carry on a business. You should always ask your potential painters for copies of their trade certifications to be sure that you are dealing with a licenced professional.

2. Industry Body Association Membership

Good painters will be a part of an industry body, that helps them continually improve their craft and stay up to date with the latest trends and developments in painting processes and products. Many industry organisations will provide confirmation of a professional member and can also give independent advice when it comes to choosing the right commercial painter for your job.

3. Length of Experience

Like any job, time in the game leads to a painter having experience with more types or surfaces, products and project types. That being said, there are some outstanding young painters in the market who with the right direction can provide an outstanding service and finished result.

4. Training

Not all painting projects are the same. Some painters have specialisation in different areas, such as interior or exterior, restoration and repair or commercial or residential. Talk to your potential contractors about their specialisations to see whether this aligns with your specific project and requirements. Also, choosing a local painter can have its rewards, as they are more aware of the unique requirements of your area. Painting in areas of extreme weather, such as Brisbane require specialised local knowledge of the area to ensure the best result.

5. Costs and Timeframes

This is an important factor in the selection of any tradesperson. You will most likely receive a number of quotes for your job, but it is important to carefully review these quotes to ensure you are comparing apples with apples. Things to check include start date, duration of the project, product, materials and volumes and mark-up, and hours of labour estimated. The cheapest quote isn’t necessarily the best quote. Take the time to understand exactly what is being offered and for what price.

6. References and Reviews

In 2019, there are a multitude of platforms that help consumers rate and review the products and services they purchase. A good commercial painter should have a consistently high rating from previous clients. If you are not sure, ask the painter to provide you with some references for jobs similar to your painting project.

7. Quality of Materials and Paints

A good painter knows that no matter how good the paint job is, if quality products are not used, this can risk the lifespan and quality of the job. Make sure your commercial painter clearly identifies the paint products they will be using for your job and do some research as to how those brands and products stack up in the market. At the end of the day, you want your paintwork to last, so make sure you are investing in the best quality painting products that you can afford.
