How Much Do Commercial Painters Cost?
Last Updated Oct 2, 2013 · Written by Kat Tate
The office environment can have a big impact on productivity and how clients and customers view your business. And a lick of paint might be all you need to improve your commercial space. Here we look at how much commercial painters cost and what you need to consider before and after gathering quotes.
Commercial Painting Costs
As with residential painting, commercial painters
tend to charge by the hour. Some may assess the space and supply an all-inclusive quote, though typically it will cost anywhere from $40 to $50 an hour. Often a team of painters will be needed to get the job done quicker, which can cost upwards of $60 an hour. Bear in mind that materials are usually extra and vary depending on how much paint is needed (i.e. the size of the space to be painted), the paint type and how many coats are required. Many painters will provide a free assessment and quote, so you’re aware of how much it will cost and can decide on the best colours to suit the space. A colour consultant
is worth considering, as they’ll suggest colours and hues based on psychology, your business and the look you want to achieve.
Commercial Painting Considerations
Making any improvements to your office space can cause disruptions. So be sure to ask the painter how long they estimate the job to take and whether they can offer a guarantee to match your budget and timeframe. Another option is to have the painting done during the holidays or after hours – a good idea if you run a large business and can’t afford to relocate your staff.
Getting Quotes from Commercial Painters
Every business owner wants to keep costs down. That’s why it’s important to get quotes
from several commercial painters. Compare the quotes according to price, inclusions, exclusions, timeframe and the painting company’s reputation. And of course, ask about warranties and insurances, to protect your business while the painting project is underway.
