Every year commercial businesses set a new budget for office related expenses, and interior and exterior painting regularly find a place on that list. As you are considering the commercial paint colors and overall maintenance required, we want to encourage you to consider the amount of time involved in these projects. When you are gathering quotes from different Portland painting contractors, we advise you to ensure accurate time estimates, including a concrete start and end date. Any sort of renovation has the chance to slightly interrupt business as usual, and you’ll want to clearly let employees and customers know what to expect. Here some things to consider when determining how fast a painting professional might complete work on your commercial business space:
Attention to Detail
Finding companies that have solid references and credibility will increase your confidence in their attention to detail. One of the fastest ways to ensure a slow job is to have to ask for it to be done twice. Companies that are able to quickly complete work pay close attention to the task at hand. Tape should be expertly applied around trim work, and drop cloths should be utilized to ensure quick clean up. When hiring a painting professional, review their policies and ask for references, and be sure to use their advice to help decide paint colors.
For faster service, ensure that your professional painter has quick access to the paint required for your job. Hopefully, they already have a relationship established with a local paint shop and can quickly mix colors and get the materials to your property. Your painting contractor should come to your location for the initial estimate, and will be able to help you determine the best interior paint or exterior paint colors. Once paint color is selected, use quality materials, such as Sherwin Williams paint or Benjamin Moore paint. This allows for fewer coats and a stronger, more vibrant final result.

When you are hiring professional painters to complete specific tasks around your commercial business, it’s important that you are confident in their ability to carry out the quote details from start to finish. Don’t sacrifice quality of service for a quick commercial paint job, and don’t cut costs that end up requiring you to spend more in the long run.
