We get asked a lot of questions as Nashville painting contractors. Here are a few of the most common along with their corresponding answers:
What is Commercial Painting?
In a literal sense, commercial painting is very similar to regular painting, with the only main difference being who the client is. The term ‘commercial’ is used to refer to any project that’s done for a business or public-facing property, like a school, storefront, office, repair garage, or community center. These buildings are all built differently than residential homes and require their own approach to painting.
Why is Commercial Painting Necessary?
A business’s appearance can make or break its success. If you’ve ever walked into a store that was dirty and disorganized, the chances are you probably won’t be going back there anytime soon! That’s why it’s important for businesses to keep their properties in tip-top shape, especially the interiors where customers spend most of their time. But exterior commercial painting is also extremely critical to a property’s appeal – and also its value. If and when you choose to sell your property, the first thing a potential buyer will notice is its appearance. If your business has fallen behind on maintenance or hasn’t been repainted in years, buyers may ask for a discount to compensate for this perceived risk.
How Often Should Commercial Painting Be Done?
There’s no hard-and-fast rule for how often commercial properties should be repainted.
It depends on a variety of factors, including:
- The type of paint used and its quality
- The age of the structure
- Weather conditions in your area
- Property demand
For example, if you operate in an area with harsh weather conditions that damage the exterior paint job faster than usual, you may need to repaint more frequently than someone who operates in a milder climate.
What are the Steps Involved in a Project?
Commercial painting jobs start with a consultation of your needs. We want to know what exactly you’re looking to achieve with the project – paint us a picture! Our specialists work with customers to find the perfect selection of paints, finishes and application methods to meet the needs of their project. Once a plan is in place, we’ll schedule your work with our team of painters and set a date for painting. A commercial painter will arrive at your business with all tools necessary for the job – brushes, rollers, paint sprayers and more! They’ll begin by preparing surfaces for painting (such as sanding or cleaning), apply primer where needed and then move on to applying the final coat.
How Can I Prepare my Business for a Commercial Painting Project?
Harpeth Painting wants to make the painting process as easy on you as possible.
To help with this, we’ve compiled a list of things that will make the overall experience smoother:
1) Clear out any items from the area being painted (i.e., furniture or equipment).
2) Remove all personal belongings from the room or space being painted.
3) Remove all fixtures such as windows, doors and hardware from walls before painting begins (unless they are to be included in a design).
How Long Does it Take?
It depends on the size of your project. Generally speaking, our team can get jobs done within a day.
How Can I Choose the Right Commercial Painting Contractor?
The best advice we can give is this: choose quality. Nashville is full of painters that claim to care about what they do, and not all of them are telling the truth. You’ll get the best value for your money by working with a provider that openly backs the integrity of its paint jobs.
