Business owners know that part of successful operations includes reinvesting in your assets. When it comes to commercial painting you need to make sure your business always looks professional and appealing to clients and potential customers.
Plus, the right painting services will extend the life of your facilities. But choosing the best provider can be confusing.
We have all heard horror stories of small amateur painting companies who take forever to complete a task. Or, they disappear before the job is finished.
If you’re picking a contractor to handle the painting needs of your business there are some important questions to ask up front.
Let’s make sure you find the best overall value. Ask your potential Oregon painting company these important questions before you make a decision:
1. How Long Have You Been In Business?
One of the best ways to separate amateurs from professionals is their longevity in the business. Make sure they have been around for a while.
2. How Are Your Customer Reviews?
When it comes to commercial work they should have plenty of reviews. Further, if you’re contracting a larger job ask for references of similar work.
3. What Is Your Commercial Painting Experience?
Let’s face it: There is a difference between the needs of commercial and residential clients.
Your contractor should have great references as well as a wide range of experience with facility types, different materials, and business requirements.
4. Who Is My Project Manager?
There are often different teams when it comes to sales and service. Before you sign on the dotted line make sure your Oregon painting company identifies the manager who will handle your needs.
5. Can You Provide An Insurance Certificate?
Insurance is critical. Some contractors will want to hide under your umbrella policy.
That won’t do. Make sure their company and employees are insured on the job.
6. How Do You Screen Your Employees?
You will be granting these contractors access to your business. Make sure they are properly screened and aren’t a security or safety risk. Here at Fitzpatrick Painting, we conduct drug testing and background checks on every employee we hire.
7. Will The Workers Assigned Be Direct Employees?
This is an important loophole to close. Your painting company could augment their team with contract labor.
Make sure all workers are direct employees covered under the same insurance, training, and screening.
8. Describe Your Safety Record and Safety Training
You want to make sure that your contractor is in full compliance with all OSHA regulations. This includes their training record and material handling regulations.
Ask about their safety record too. They should be in compliance with keeping a safety log and have up-to-date information available.
