I want to start off with making the argument for painting your shop, factory, office, church . . . wherever it is you call your workplace.  Painting is a relatively low cost way to improve your environment and make it visually appealing and even invigorating.  Just for a few examples of how inexpensive painting can be, one 12 x 12 office can cost as little as $150 to patch, sand and paint two coats – even two colors!  So why wait – call us today at 317-528-9500.
Now that we have that out of the way . . .
Most general contractors don’t need help vetting subs.  There are still many contractors who operate on price alone – most of us know this is a losing strategy.  Too good to be true low pricing is often a symptom of a large problems with subcontractors.  It may be the subs poor estimating skills that leave him short on bid day.  It could be a lack of interest in following the owner’s specification requirements – underbidding the work.  Still others around our area are using subcontractors to perform the work – sub subcontractors.  I tend to think all of these are either short sighted at best or downright unethical.  I’m not really wanting to help GC’s choose a subcontracting firm, they are better at it than I am.  But as a business owner myself, I want to help you pick a good firm that will improve your reputation throughout the facility improvement process.
First, your painter must be knowledgeable in his field.  You can’t ask for a worse experience that having to use your limited knowledge of the coatings industry to lead your painting contractor in his work.  Hopefully you were looking for a contractor who was willing and able to take your project and turn it into reality with minimal input from you. If you are at all like me, your time is limited and you schedule is already too full.  Helpful tip:  have the contractor come up with a job plan that outlines products, colors, schedules and a basic plan for the project.  Look for details on prep, application and cleanup in his plan and go over with him.  You should use this plan to ensure your contractor is staying on track and fulfilling his promises to you.
Second, your painting contractor must be clean and organized.  Painting is a visual craft and if your contractor is showing signs of disorganization and clutter, your job won’t go any better than this ever important first impression.  A contractor who is organized from beginning to end will not only make your project as smooth as it can be, but he will also save you money in the long run.  A disorganized contractor will miss important items during the quoting phase and, if you want them painted, you will have to pay extra to have them painted.  A low price is often the most expensive paint job you will ever get!
Third,  hire a painter who is committed to his business and his customers.  If you hire on price, you will often get bad prep or cheap product resulting in early paint failure.  Why paint today just to have your business look like an eyesore in a few short years.  If you repainting an exterior, this is of paramount importance.  Paint is not only aesthetic, but protective.  Early failure on the exterior of your building can be the cause of more expensive and disruptive repairs to your building’s structure.
Finally, you want a contractor who is fiscally responsible.  If your contractor asks you for more than 20% down to start, tell him no thank you.  Our company does not take any money until the work is complete and you are happy with the work.  Also, look at his insurance and be sure to ask to be a certificate holder with additional insured endorsements.  This will protect you and your customers in the event that an unfortunate event arises – and they inevitably will.  If you don’t have this endorsement when the event happens, you might be on the hook for cleaning up his mess.
On a final note, never pay a contractor the full amount due until you are happy and he gives you lien waivers from his company and the suppliers he has used.  In most states, if you contractor has purchased material on a “job account” with a supplier, you are also liable for that debt.  Now quit putting that project off and give us a call today!
