How to Ensure a High Quality Paint Job
Attention to detail is critical to deliver a high-quality paint job. Well-planned, prepared and executed painting projects will create a neat and professional finish for an office space, a retail store, etc. Any legitimate, commercial painting company, must be covered with adequate business liability insurance. Employees and workers must be fully covered in case of personal injury and property damage including but not limited to worker’s compensation and general liabilities. As you can imagine, it can be a very complicated process.
Professional and commercial painters should also supply the right equipment for each project. This may be an aerial lift for a high commercial building or pressurized paint sprayers for large industrial projects. A commercial contractor’s teams must always make sure they clean the building thoroughly as many do not.
A large portion of concrete buildings are coated with custom-built concrete form release. Professional painters should know that this coating must to be removed before painting begins. Otherwise the paint will not adhere properly to the substrate.
Power washing can do the work and removes a lot of the dirt, mold, peel off, and old paint from commercial buildings. Painters must also protect the windows and doors and any fixture of the building using the proper tools as to not get paint on unnecessary items. For example: store front, light fixtures, retail entrance, door front, window panels, window glass, bow windows and all office or corporate branding.
A good commercial painter will use a pressure-feed paint sprayer to apply a first coat of specified primer to seal the surface of the building. This will help to prepare for a smoother finish once the renovation or remodeling project is completed.
Not until all these bases are covered should painters and technicians begin to actually paint. They should then complete one or multiple finished coats of the specified paint. This make sure the color is solid and bright through and through.
