If the exterior of your small business is looking drab, you may be concerned that the appearance is impacting your bottom line. A fresh coat of paint can make all the difference and make your small business stand out from the rest. However, before you hire a professional contractor, you need to ask some critical questions to ensure you find the right contractor for your needs and budget.
Here are a few questions you should ask before hiring a commercial painting contractor.
What Brand of Paint Do You Use?
When you receive an estimate from the commercial painter, the estimate will include the cost of supplies. One of the biggest expenses will be the paint. Don't be afraid to ask about the brand of paint the company typically uses. Do your homework to determine if the paint is a quality product and if you are being fairly charged for the cost of the paint.
Are You Licensed, Insured, and Bonded?
Because painting your commercial property often involves using scaffolding, which means there is a chance of a serious fall and injuries, it is critical to ask the contractor the type of insurance they carry. Additionally, you should ask if the contractor is bonded, which means that the contractor has set money aside, in case any of their crew are injured on the job.
The contractor should have no problem telling you they are licensed and bonded and informing you of the type of insurance coverage they carry.
Who Will Be Painting My Commercial Property?
It might seem like a simple question but asking the contractor who will actually be painting your commercial property is critical. In addition to providing you with the number of employees who will be actually painting, which will give you some idea of how long the process will take, the contractor will also tell you if subcontractors are being hired.
When a contractor hires subcontractors instead of their own employees, it is because, unlike their employees, subcontractors may not be covered by the contractor's insurance policy. This means that if one of the subcontractors is injured on your property, you might be held liable. Instead, always work with a contractor who has their own employees paint your commercial property.
From inquiring about the use of subcontractors to asking about the type of paint that will be used, there are several questions you need to ask before hiring a painter for your commercial property.Share

Hello, my name is Patty. I would like to share information about wallpaper on this website. Although wallpaper has mostly gone out of style in recent decades, it will eventually enjoy a revival as people rediscover its beauty and functionality. Wallpaper protects the drywall from moisture while coating the room in an attractive design. The paper is fairly straightforward to install and remove, making it an easy way to update the look of the home on the fly. I will explore every facet of wallpaper on my website. Please feel free to stop by often to discuss the history and future of wallpaper.
