Now that summer has arrived, it is likely for commercial units to undergo a makeover. Mostly, business units including restaurants or retailers pursue plans for a refreshing makeover of their establishment. Rather than investing in a complete remodelling, they take interior or exterior painting as cost-effective ways to achieve a desired look for their business unit. Although the idea of getting employees for the paint job may seem cost-saving since employees will charge zero amount of money and the only thing you need to expend on is a few paint buckets and some painting tools, it is still better to hire a professional and get things fixed by means of which you can save your business from a potential disaster. Go through some of these painting mistakes to understand what you must avoid: 

Getting Employees to Do the Paint Job 

It could be a costly mistake to ask employees to paint the interiors or exteriors of your home. Eventually it may appear like you will be saving oodles of money by not appointing professional Brisbane commercial painters; but there is a chance that this could lead you to experience a huge loss. It is understandable that most of the employees don’t even have enough knowledge about professional paint jobs which could further give rise to a wide variety of issues. Not only would it lead to a poor paint job which would ultimately demand professional intervention but at the same time the after effects like those mentioned below would soon be showing up following an unprofessional paint job: 

  • Missed spots 
  • Paint drips 
  • Runs 

Since most of these employees have little or no knowledge about painting it is likely that they will try to skip a proper prep work which will further lead to peeling and flaking of paint. Also, you will not be able to blame them for a task for which they have not been agreed upon; as a result of which you may have to bear the amount from your pocket. 

Seeking Services of Uninsured Contractors 

Although the idea of seeking services from a low priced contractor may seem tempting to you, but it is a typical mistake business owner make. Seeking services from contractors who mostly don’t have their services insured would mean mindfully agreeing upon a potential loss. Whenever you are working with a contractor dealing with paint jobs, it is especially important to ask for their current insurance cover. A reliable service provider will have their services covered lest they should damage the property or their crew members get injured while painting your property. Verifying on their current insurance policy is an extremely popular way to avert risks and to avoid falling into traps concerning substandard paint services. 

Failing to Adhere to Regulations

Getting an exterior paint job done without following professional rules as per state or regional laws is a potential mistake. The local or state regulations pertaining to paint services should be abided without a choice else it could put a business at massive risk of facing fines and considerable penalties. Furthermore these regulations are applicable for the following: 

  • Products which need to used 
  • Safety equipment 
  • Training offered to professionals

These are necessary, to ensure that the commercial painters in Brisbane are able to provide a standard job at your commercial unit. 

Another very common mistake is to pick inferior quality paint supplies. From the paint itself to the tools required for the job, make sure you only choose best quality products.
