Commercial Painting: Steps to Success

Rachel Williams

Unlike residential painting, painting commercial is often a much more in-depth process. From budget analysis to tenant notifications and more, planning ahead is essential for any San Diego painting success. That’s why, whatever the season, connecting with a painting contractor early is a crucial step in the renovation process.

How should you start? 


Step #1: Check the Better Business Bureau. 


When customers find a great company, they tend to want to share. Checking sites like the Better Business Bureau as well as Yelp, Houzz or even a contractor’s own website for testimonials is a great way to learn more about your potential painting contractor.


Step #2: Ask about insurance & licensing.


Whether you’re hiring a landscaper, house painter or other type of contractor for your commercial project, don’t forget to ask about insurance and licensing.


In case of an accident, who’s responsible? Brad Stoner Painting has full General Liability up to $1,000,000 as well as Commercial Auto and Worker’s Compensation insurance. We’re also a licensed contractor who won’t put you and your tenants at risk should any issues arise. What about your potential contractors? It’s always better to ask for proof of insurance and licensing than to assume.


Step #3: Set up an estimate.


Once you’ve asked around and narrowed down your list of painting contractors, it’s time to set up an estimate. Companies like Brad Stoner Painting offer free estimates to customers - so it won’t cost you anything to compare pricing.


Just don’t forget about customer service! Sometimes it’s better to pay a little more ahead of time for a dependable contractor who won’t leave you with unhappy tenants and other loose ends to tie up after the job is done.


Step #4: Ask about color consulting.


Are color complications slowing you down? Most San Diego area commercial painters offer free color consultations. By planning ahead and giving yourself enough time to work with a color consultant, you’ll not only save time but eliminate most last-minute changes.

Planning ahead leaves time for all the important details of your San Diego commercial painting project. Wondering what else to check for in a potential commercial painting contractor? Check out our list of things to look for here
