What Is Commercial Painting?
Residential painting feels almost obvious in purpose, as it covers the regular painting requirements of any home – interior walls, exterior walls, roofing, sheds, and such. Commercial painting, by comparison, is much more complex, as there are much broader applications for paint in the commercial sector.
Fortunately, if you're looking to understand exactly what you'd need a team of commercial painters for, that might be something we can help with.
The Broad Strokes
On a broad level, a commercial painter is someone who services the commercial sector, including office buildings, stores, and restaurants, amongst others. They can also offer some low-level strata painting, including for apartment buildings or townhouses, as their skills in painting large offices translate fairly well into painting multi-residential properties.
Commercial painters have specialised their skillset to ensure it is compatible with the large-scale and long-term requirements of the commercial sector, which means changes such as altered interior and exterior painting methods or specialised roof coatings.
The Finer Details
The specialisation of a commercial painter doesn't benefit small-scale projects, such as the painting of a residential property, so it's best that you contact a commercial painter when you have a large property that you'd like to see painted.
For instance, you might be trying to paint a logo on the side of your store, or you'd like to power-wash a large, corporate office, and in either case, commercial painters are the professionals you should be reaching out to. Other scenarios in which you'd expect to need to reach out to a commercial painter include hotel remodelling’s, which are incredibly detailed projects, and masonry repair, which is much more delicate.
In the first, the large scale of the project lends itself to the skillset that a commercial painter will have developed, and in the latter, the repaired masonry will require a paintjob that will match the existing façade as closely as possible, calling on the specialised skills these painters hold.
Know Which Painter To Call For Every Circumstance
With the wide difference in the skillsets and equipment of a commercial and residential painter, it will make your life much easier if you know which one to call in the right circumstances. If you're looking to perform some small-scale painting on a residential property, then you'll likely want a residential painter, but if the project is either large-scale or incredibly delicate, including work on multi-residential properties, than a commercial painter may be the better choice.
Fortunately, here at Premier Painting, our commercial painters are experienced with every aspect of the job, and we can help bring any project to a smooth conclusion. We employ all of our painters directly rather than work with external contractors and utilise as much of our own equipment as possible, ensuring our work is always completed on-time and without any extra fees or expenses.
