New Commercial Construction Painting
1. The Right Skillset
Some companies will hire general contractors for their painting project, which is a mistake for commercial projects in particular. Specialized painters have the experience and the skillset needed to ensure that the finish is professional and uniform. Throughout the property, whether inside or outside, you will have the same texture and coverage, with the specified color scheme. This is something that cannot be achieved without years of prior experience.
Another crucial element of any successful construction project is speed. A specialized painting company has both the skillset and the equipment to ensure that project deadlines are met and that the property hits the market as soon as possible. General contractors on the other hand may vary in their output. This is not only reflected in the ETA however. If the contractor charges by the hour, it will also be reflected in their billing. You can avoid all this extra headache by working with a specialist instead.
On average, professional painters charge more per hour than a general contractor. However, as mentioned previously, professional painters are faster, so you will end up paying roughly the same, if not less per project if you choose to go with a professional painting company like Prime Time Painting. You may also save money on supplies, since specialized painters are always able to recommend cost-effective alternative products that can more or less achieve the same finish as the top-shelf materials. Furthermore, pros can very accurately estimate the quantity of paint needed for each project, which means that you will not have surprise expenses further down the line when they need to resupply.
Oversight can be a time and money drain on any project, and if you need to keep an eye on your contractors at all times instead of working on other more pressing issues, you are wasting valuable resources. A professional commercial painter will be able to work with minimal instruction, since they are within their area of expertise.
5. The Best Equipment
The quality of a finished painting project will depend on many factors, including the equipment that is used. To start, you will not have to pay for the equipment of a professional painting team like Prime Time Painting, and you can rest assured that we have the best equipment for the job. The same cannot be said for the general contractor, who does not have the incentive to specialize and invest to the degree that a professional painting company like ours does. Of course, this translates into a lower quality finish that is completed in a larger time frame.
