The Perth Business Guide to Avoiding Disastrous Paint Jobs

If you are searching for the best shop or office painters, chances are that you’ve got a job that’s worth doing right the first time. There’s nothing more expensive than redoing a paint job, not just for labour and materials, for downtime! With a wealth of companies to choose from, across a broad spectrum of pricing schemes, it is important to take note of what can (and often will!) go wrong if you make an uninformed choice. Here’s what you need to know about commercial painters in Perth to AVOID a massive, costly disaster!

1. Making Your Decision Based Purely On Financials

It certainly is tempting to go with the lowest possible cost when making the decision to undertake professional commercial painting. When you are focused on the bottom line, logic suggests to go with the best quote.

This, however, doesn’t take experience into account. Around here, we’ve been award-winning master painters for close to twenty years (with 85 years’ worth of experience in the Perth commercial painting market) and we offer a complete range of professional painting services. Rather than just focusing on cost, you need to consider exactly who it is that you are trusting the job to. This may mean laying out a little extra in the short term but it has the capacity to save you BIG in the long run.

2. Disruption to Work

Ill-prepared commercial painters will not take into account the requirements of your site. Be it a shopping centre, school, hospital or sundry other professional spaces, if you make the wrong choice, you run the risk of work and access being disrupted. That line earlier about losing out in the long run? It’s true!

Imagine if the painters you selected went about their work in a way that meant your business or industry had to grind to a halt to accommodate them. You need to ensure you choose a commercial painting company that understands that you still have work to do.

3. Blown Out Work Schedules

On-boarding a contractor comes with risks. One massive one to consider is the fact that the period of time quoted has the potential to blow right out if you are working with someone who is inexperienced and ill-equipped to deliver your work in a timely fashion.

At AJ Cochrane & Sons, we pride ourselves on delivering realistic timeframes to our clients that take into account the myriad factors that surround a large-scale commercial job. We’re very used to the ebb and flow of business and know that we have what it takes to deliver on time, every time.

4. Knowing Your Brand and Being Able to Represent it Well

Our professional team will work with you to come up with templates for the best possible use of colours and shades. Sometimes when you select your own colours you can be somewhat blind to the ‘look’ that your customers and audience best respond to - and that’s where we come in. Going with a company who is just chasing your dollar may end up leaving a sour taste in your mouth when you realise that things just don’t look ‘right’.

5. Complying with OH & S practices

Lastly, but certainly not least, you need to ensure that your painters comply with established OH & S protocol. The very last thing you need is to work with contractors who aren’t as well versed as us in terms of appropriate practice.
