Questions to Ask Before
Choosing Your Painting Company

There are many things to consider before you run a fresh coat of paint on your premises, but they do not need to be a hassle, you could choose to tackle all the milestones by properly defining them and finding out which role each plays towards the success of the project, but it all begins with a mental construct, a finished product in your head.

The following are the queries you should present to your painting company: In asking these questions, a more definite outcome for satisfaction is established. It also allows for the smooth completion of the project.

Determine the Appeal of the Finished Product – This query is placed in trying to understand the various expressions a coat of paint makes to the interior of the premises. This is established due to the ability of different shades, colors, and hues of paint do to the light as it is distributed across the room. For different areas in the home or office, paint appeals determine what kind of activities will be performed in the subject area; for instance, the kitchen area is optimized for improved visibility and contrast to the cooking activities. It’s a place where hygiene and cleanliness have to be expressed in the hues and response to light, whether artificial or natural. Subtle colors are used when the activities in the targeted room do not need to solicit for mood or emotion, but a placid and plain interpretation of the surroundings, like a hospital or care center where no visible provocation is required.

Determine the desired type of paint – This is determined by the composition that makes up the paint, the differences are intended for varying uses and purposes. Your painting company should be able to assist you to identify between Oil Paint, Varnish, Enamel, Latex, Water-Reducible, Alkyds, Epoxy, Polyester Epoxy, Urethane-Modified Alkyds, Aluminum Paint, Shellac among others. The purpose of all these variations is because of specialized color, unique surfaces, materials, environment (avoiding allergic reactions, etc), and texture.

Determine What Type of Insurance you have – This works in two ways; first, you need to determine what your liability insurance covers- you would be surprised to see that a significant amount of cost can be covered by your premises insurance package based on the reasons that lead to the paint job, and any incident that may occur during the execution of the job that might lead you toward liability. Secondly, ask your painting contractor what kind of insurance they have. This is important because the possibility of injury due to the painting process is real, and it might happen on your premises. Warranty of the paint job refers to the confidence that your insurance contractor has with their workmanship and paint quality. They might insure the process, meaning that if a paint job does not follow through to the warranty declarative state, you would not stand to lose on re-doing the job.

Define the Constraints and Progression of the Project – Your painting contractor will illuminate all the constraints of the project, addressing timelines, setup requirements, isolation, safety, and implementation timelines. Without defining these, you will not know when you need to relocate items in and around the paint area; you will not know what your obligations for safety are, and what to advise all stakeholders in terms of safety precautions. The timeline will help you plan such that your daily routines are not affected significantly. Sharing work plans helps you manage operations around the necessity of the paint job.
