What is Commercial Painting?

Commercial painting differs from residential painting, even though they both involve the same task and often the same team of painters. As will be explored, it refers to any painting job (interior or exterior) completed for a business, office or any other facility an organization or company uses.

People often like to do residential painting projects themselves to save money. However, when painting commercial spaces, it is necessary to hire experts. This blog will look at what commercial painting is, the type of businesses that hire commercial painters, its difference from residential paint jobs, and the types of services you could book for your commercial space today.

What is Commercial Painting and who needs it? 

This is painting for businesses, whether it be inside or outside. Just as homes need new paint every once in a while, so do businesses. How a company looks ultimately helps sell the products and services and get people interested in their offer. 

Many businesses typically require interior and exterior painting, and here are just a few examples of the companies that likely will hire commercial painters:

  • Restaurants
  • Offices
  • Manufacturing sites
  • Hospitality (hotels and motels)
  • Industrial buildings
  • Schools and universities
  • Amusement and recreational facilities
  • Retail stores
  • Apartments and condos
  • Homes for realty
  • Healthcare 

As you can see, painting commercial spaces encompasses various industries, sectors, and company types. There are no limits to the number of different businesses and industries that need this service, as everyone must have a fresh, polished, professional appearance to entice their audience. So even though it involves the same service, it differs from residential.

Why is Commercial Painting Different from Residential Painting 

There are many reasons why commercial painting is different from residential painting. Even though painting is the same skill ultimately, residential and commercial painters have other tasks and different focuses when completing projects.

Demonstrate your Professionalism 

First, painting commercial spaces is all about the professional look. Businesses have to show off who they are, their professionalism and entice people to enter their stores or office. Therefore, commercial painting might involve a different plan of action to achieve a more professional appearance, rather than one that might be more eccentric or personalised to the individual or their home.

Different Specialties for Business Needs 

Additionally, commercial painters can specialise in several different areas: large-scale projects, small-scale projects, roof coating, or even altered interior or exterior painting jobs, or even the implementation of a logo. Commercial painters deal with a wide variety of painting services, making it quite other than residential and often more complex. 

What Types of Services can a Commercial Painter do?

Commercial painters can perform various services depending on your needs and the state of your office or retail space. Here are a few examples of the types of services commercial painters can complete for your interior space, exterior, or even accent walls.

  • Interior and exterior painting
  • Spray painting
  • General contractors (sometimes)
  • Power washing
  • Masonry repair
  • Drywall repair
  • Interior walls and logos
  • Electrostatic spray painting

Whether it be adding logos to walls, completing new paint jobs, or even adding a fresh coat of exterior paint to a brand-new building, commercial painters can work alongside other contractors to help your business building have a professional look.
