Paintwork can transform a business. It can enhance an organization’s office space by brightening the area and improving the ambience for work staff. Selecting a commercial painting service for the transformation can be a complex process. Many company leaders make mistakes during this process, and these mistakes can have a lasting negative impact on the organization and its operations. In this latest article, the team at Timmins Painting looks at three common mistakes companies make when selecting a commercial painting service.
Not Getting References
When entrusting a commercial painting team for their decorating service, business owners must complete comprehensive research. One of the leading mistakes they can make within this process is simply not speaking with previous clients of the company and not following through on the company’s references. When speaking with references of the company, the business owner and their team should have a set of questions to ask concerning the commercial painting firm’s service. Questions such as “Did the original quote match the final price?” and “How did the company meet your expectations?” are important to ask in the research process.
Not Planning for the Work Taking Place in the Office
It’s important to ensure that each element of the office is organized and ready for the work of the commercial painting contractor. The company’s team will be bringing their ladders, paints and other working products with them to the office, so the office should be prepared for their arrival. Many firms simply book the service without notifying their teams, and this can lead to significant confusion when part of the office is unavailable. Team leaders should notify their staff at least two weeks ahead of time to ensure as little negative impact on working operations as possible.
Not Getting a Warranty on the Project
The full return on investment from a painting project might only be achieved in the years after completion when the company’s professional reputation has been enhanced as a result of the work. Companies focused in achieving a lasting return must try to assess their painting contractor’s warranty options. Most will be able to provide a warranty for their workmanship that covers several months after the work has been completed. This warranty can then be activated should the painting work not meet the company’s highest standards. It’s a protective tool that all businesses must use when hiring a commercial painting service.
