Commercial Painting Frequently Asked Questions (FAQ)
How often should you repaint an office or commercial building?
When it comes to repainting your commercial building or office space it depends on many variables. For the exterior of your commercial building, it would be valuable to you as an owner to paint your building every 8-12 years depending on how the paint weathers over time. The exterior of the building not only can attract customers, but it is necessary to protect your building from rust, wood rot, and natural weathering. When it comes to repainting the interior of your commercial space, it depends on the type of work being performed in the space, the volume of traffic, and the appearance you are going for. For example, if you own an office, you may paint every 4-5 years just to fix minor wear and tear to the walls as well as refreshing the space and keep it up to date.
Do you charge by the square foot?
When estimating a commercial repaint project, we do not charge by the square foot. The reasoning is that there are many variables such as damage to the substrate.
Do you offer after-hours painting?
After-hours painting can be completed upon request. After-hours painting is popular amongst individuals that are needing their office, warehouse, or retail interiors needed and still need to be open during the day. Typically, with after-hours painting, you will see a slight price increase due to overtime rates.
Do you move and/or cover furniture?
Furniture is moved as needed and upon request. Plastic is used any time an object needs to be protected and is too heavy to move out of the way.
Is there a way for you to paint while people are still working?
Painting while working requires contractors with great communication skills to coordinate between the office and painters. Fortunately, the professional painting contractors at Major Painting are more than capable to handle this. For example, when painting a commercial building that is occupied, the contractor is going to need to communicate to the customer on what the schedule is for painting and any requests he may need such as car moved, doors opened, etc.
What is the best time of the year to do an office repaint?
The answer to “when is the best time of the year to repaint an office” solely depends on what makes it easiest and most convenient for the office staff. For example, if your office is a high traffic area such as downtown Kansas City, it is often best to have the work completed over Holidays or after hours to prevent interference to the work that is being completed. If the office is a calm and flexible work environment, experienced contractors are good at organizing a work schedule that can be performed during hours and is convenient for the client.
