Look out for an accredited Master Painter too. A Master Painter will be able to tick all the boxes and you can rest easy knowing you are getting a reputable company backed by the industry governing body.
What to consider when hiring a commercial painter?
Are you new to owning a commercial property or haven’t had to have your property painted before? Here are the top 5 things to consider when choosing your commercial painter:
- Insurance – public liability and workers compensation
- Master painter – not a necessity but definitely an added bonus
- Experienced team of commercial painters
- Professional leadership
Ask your commercial painter for a copy of their insurance certificates of currency. Any painting contractor worth their weight should be happy to provide them and if not find another. This is an area you never want to be unsure or uncertain of.
An experienced commercial painter will also be able to discuss with you, your business circumstances and determine the best time to undergo the work based on:
- Off peak season – if your business has a period that isn’t as busy as normal, closes for anytime throughout the year for holidays or has skeleton staff for any period then that can be a great opportunity for us to come in and undertake work
- Weather – if the painting is external then we will also need to consider the time of the year along with the size of the job
- Logistics – if there is anything else going on around the property which may hinder us accessing the property? This is extremely important when it comes to external painting as we also need to consider scaffolding access and what’s involved in having this erected and dismantled.
Ask about their previous commercial jobs in Sydney
Always ask about the background of the company and previous jobs they have done in the same or similar area. Discuss how they foresee the job running in relation to:
- Number of painters required
- Access to the premises
- How the business in the premises will operate with the painters
Google is always a good place to start the search for a reputable commercial painter. Just Google the company name and you might be amazed at how much information you can find including reviews and feedback from past customers.
