What to Look for in a Commercial Painting Contractor

28th February 2018

When it comes to choosing a company for commercial painting and decorating, it may seem like a simple decision. Although price should play a vital role in your decision, a wider range of factors are involved that should be considered.

Here, we have put together a few factors that we think determine a good painting contractor, to help you decide who will be best for the job:

  • Accreditations

Professional accreditations highlight the standard of work a company is capable of producing. A balance of accreditations, from industry specific ones, such as The Painting & Decorating Association (PDA) and health and safety schemes like the Contractor Health & Safety Assessment Scheme (CHAS) suggest a company is credible and trustworthy.

  • Transparent Quotations

Proposals and quotations from commercial painting companies should be clear, easy to understand, and transparent. It’s imperative that you identify all areas of potential misunderstanding up front so there will be no confusion during the refurbishment process. A professional contractor will prepare understandable quotes with perfect clarity, which often makes for a more efficient project.

  • Flexible Schedules

A common phrase in the industry is that “the best refurbishment companies are those you don’t know are there.” Ideally your chosen contractor will work to your schedule and not their own, making sure to always clear out their equipment at the end of the working day. This can have a huge effect on minimising disruption to your business and customers.

  • Project Updates

Using a company that provides updates throughout the project is beneficial to both parties. For your business, this helps to reduce disruption as any issues can be rectified at an early stage. For the painting contractor, communication with the customer aids efficiency and planning, ensuring the project is completed at the earliest possible time.
