If you've contracted someone to complete a construction job for you, it might be tempting to ask them to do the painting as well when they finish up--or to try and save a little money by doing it yourself. This might be alright for domestic purposes and can be a great way to save a few bucks in those situations, but if your building work has been for a business premises (such as for a shop or cafe that you run, or as part of office construction) it's a good idea to hire someone who specialises in painting instead. So why is that, and what kinds of benefits will the extra spending get for you?
Commercial painters know when to use specialised paint.
Many businesses require more kinds of paint--and different painting techniques--than the average domestic property. Commercial kitchens, for example, need a paint more heavy-duty than ordinary kitchen emulsion and need to be decorated in line with health and safety regulations; the exterior of your premises is likely to benefit from anti-graffiti or anti-climb paints not common outside of the commercial world. A professional painter will know what you need and how to make it happen.
Commercial painters are set up to tackle large, difficult spaces.
The rooms in most homes are quite small, with low ceilings compared to many professional buildings and fewer architectural complications. A commercial painter who specialises in business painting will have everything they need to work in a space like this, and won't be overwhelmed by the sheer amount of paint required to cover it all.
Commercial painters are fully aware of all building regulations.
Businesses have different regulations in place than homes do, and you and your builders may not be fully aware of them as they apply to decoration in the way that a commercial painter will be. Kitchens and bathrooms are often subject to regulation if they're to be used by the public, for example, while local authorities may have guidelines and limitations of their own that local painters are used to working within but others might have little understanding of.
There are plenty of benefits to saving a little money, sure--but hiring a professional painter who specialises in decorating business premises is the only way to ensure that you're getting the job you need done to the standard you require.
