When you’ve finally decided on a painting contractor you would like to discuss your commercial painting project with, you should first verify their license and/or certifications. These key elements are important to not only the quality of work they can provide, but can also validate their level of expertise. This verification can make or break your decision to hire this painting contractor.

Perhaps the most important element of hiring a painting contractor involves insurance. Any reputable commercial painting contractor will have current general liability and worker’s compensation insurance. It’s required by law. Do they have insurance? What is covered and what limits of coverage do they maintain? The vital details of liability in different situations should be discussed with your attorney. It is ultimately your responsibility to ensure the contractor you hire is covered adequately for your project. If you didn’t perform due diligence yourself, don’t be surprised if a situation arises and you are not covered. Ask questions now, not later.

Finding a professional and experienced painting contractor doesn’t have to be difficult. Once you find a reliable painting contractor to complete your project, you can also contract with them on an as needed basis for maintenance of your facility.

This initial search may be time-consuming, but the end result, will be worth the effort in the long run.
