Where Commercial and Residential Painting Differ
When your commercial facility has reached the sign of wear for the first time and that there is a call to have it repainted, you need resolutely press yourself to doing something about it, and the first thing that you need to tackle should not be top dollar, as most often is the case, but rather something contingent to cost.
It is best to start with the painting company since it is often a mistaken impression that there is no big difference between a commercial and residential painting. The following will explain why you should keep the distinction between the two.
Tackling the task of painting may look very similar, as you must have seen some occasion where these were done in private homes and equivalently done in a commercial facility. However, once you start to look deeper, various questions will then beg to be answered that will help you loosen up the range that distinguishes the two from each other. After this exercise, your attempt to tackle cost will set you up to have a better conclusive decision.
Unlike a residential painting company where the focus is different from that of a commercial facility, the ability to paint well is not enough. Residential painting contractors have many experiences with working with materials used in homes such as wood and siding. Commercial painting contractors on the other hand may have a wider range of material experience that is similarly being use in homes like concrete, stucco, metal and all other types of material used for homes, but on a different setting. Business and other buildings with a lot of traffic call for a more durable paint or other protective coating to enable it to withstand heavier wear and tear than a residential home.
Another things that makes residential and commercial painting jobs different from each other is their work itinerary. It is usually the case that business facilities are larger than homes, most of the time. On the same hours, residences are not being used while business facilities are busy. With this difference, there are distinct parameters measured not only in terms of commercial companies working during non-office hours or during holidays but on other supplemental needs.
Unlike residential homes that require a more confined task, commercial jobs that are larger will require a more complex planning and more manpower skill sets if it intends to do the job without commotion and delays. They usually have staff that is dedicated to particularly look into planning, organization and a project manager to help coordinate everything smoothly. The job also requires standby equipment that may be needed during the day or night that can readily be discharged.
Now we have seen how residential painting is different from commercial painting in many ways.
