What to Look for in a Commercial Painting Company

Posted on Tuesday, 1 September 2015

Commercial Painting Company

A fresh coat of paint can really make your business stand out to passersby, but completely painting the exterior can be a big investment. You want to be certain that you are getting the highest quality service possible, so when looking for a commercial painting company in Needham, there are a few things you should ask about before signing a single paper.

What Do Past Customers Have to Say?

An easy way to see what kind of reputation a company has is to talk to past clients to see how satisfied they were with the job. A good painting company should have no problem providing you with references who can attest to their quality. You can also see what rating they have with the Better Business Bureau (BBB). An A+ is ideal and shows that they possess the kind of craftsmanship you are looking for.

How Much Do They Take Upfront?

At the very least, many painting companies will ask for some kind of deposit just to cover the cost of materials, but if they are asking for a large sum upfront for labor when they have not done anything yet, that can be a bad sign. It is not very likely that a painting company asking for some of the cost upfront and then some more halfway through is going to be very motivated to finish on time. You should look for a company that only collects the cost of labor at the very end once you are absolutely pleased with the results.

Once your business has been painted, you want to be certain that it is going to remain looking great for a while, so feel free to really get to know your contractor before committing. Ask questions and perform your own independent research to see which company will give you the results you need. With an adequate amount of preparation, you will feel a lot more comfortable with the commercial painting company in Needham you have chosen.
