Which Commercial Painting Companies Near Me Are Best?

If you own a business, you want nothing but the best for it. So, it is only appropriate that you want to hire the best commercial painting companies near me to make your business attractive to your clients.

The first question that probably comes to your mind is: “Who do I call?” You may encounter many painting companies in your phone directory or online, or you find their offices just a few blocks away from your business. But perhaps the better questions will be: “What painting contractor has the expertise? Which contractor can I trust? Which contractor will do a good job on my project?”

Rather than looking for a contractor in your phone book, the best way to know if a painter is worthy of your project is to get referrals from your friends, relatives, and colleagues whose judgment and opinions you trust. They may recommend the names of the contractors they hired in the past. (Of course, you may also want to check the Better Business Bureau website to see what type of rating they have.)

You may get their names and put them on the top of your list. You may call your prospective bidders one by one and start screening them by asking a few (but very important) questions. One of those questions is whether these prospective candidates are licensed and insured.

Residential and commercial painters must be licensed and insured. By California law, all contractors are required to have a valid license. To obtain a license, candidates should have enough experience and apply at the Contractors State License Board (CSLB). They will most likely have to take an exam which tests their knowledge in their field. You see, if the painter lacks a valid license, it's an indication that he lacks the necessary expertise – not only to paint a building successfully but possibly also to run a business.

When painting contractors indeed have licenses, they should also have liability and worker's compensation insurance. Liability covers certain situations such as damages done by the contractor while they're working on your establishment. For instance, if they break something while painting your business, that damage will be covered by the company.

Worker's compensation insurance reimburses workers who are injured at the work site, for medical expenses and lost wages, regardless of who was at fault. Worker's compensation insurance will also provide benefits to the worker's families in case of death.

Aside from the licensing and insurance, the best contractor must have a wealth of experience in the field. This experience will show they know the ins and the outs of the industry and focus on nothing other than quality workmanship. When you know that a painting contractor is experienced, you can rely on them to do their job well.

The best painting contractors put customer satisfaction at the core of their business. They know all too well that if they cannot meet the satisfaction of their customers, their business won't flourish.

The best painting contractors should also be adaptable to the fluctuating economic climate, the march of technology, as well as their customers' changing preferences. They should also be innovative and up-to-date on the latest technology relating to paints and coatings, and the latest commercial and industrial painting techniques.

It's understandable that because of tough competition, the best contractors should also be able to diversify their services. They should be able to offer painting and coating services across a broad range of applications that include fire-proofing, water-proofing, specialized coatings, interior and exterior painting, decorative painting and other services such as color consulting.

The best contractors should also strengthen their manpower by continually training them with new techniques that will enable them to perform their jobs beyond their original duties. Providing them with additional skills and knowledge will enrich their experiences in commercial painting, and that will help them transform into invaluable assets to the company.

The best painting contractor should also have a good safety record. This is also important as commercial painting often involves high or dangerous places. Ask each contractor whether they put their workers into regular safety training programs, and whether they use high-quality safety equipment.

The best contractors near me should be able to match their services with fair rates that correspond to the industry pricing standards. You shouldn't settle for any painter who offers low rates in exchange for a sloppy paint job, or a painter who charges rates that are unreasonably high.

To get a fair pricing, you should ask for estimates from at least three contractors, and take the time to read and compare them. Any estimate that sounds too good to be true may be an indication that the contractor is not the contractor you want to work with. However, it is a good idea to ask them why there is such a difference. You may find that their reason is justified and decide to hire them despite the difference.

Hiring the best commercial painting companies near me should be considered as a good investment. After all, you don't want to jeopardize the future of your business by hiring contractors who aren't qualified for the job and do not do a good job.
