What You Should Know About Industrial Painting in Melbourne
Melbourne is one of the biggest cities in Australia. Being a large city, it’s really not surprising to find companies that specialize in industrial painting to service the building projects in the area.
What is industrial painting anyway? Industrial painting refers to the use of industrial-grade painting and coating for the protection of buildings and other projects. An industrial painting job could be for a commercial or residential project. A painting job always involves two steps: preparing surfaces and applying the paint and coating.
If you have a Melbourne-based painting job that needs expert hands, you can find local painting contractors on Google. Some of these companies, like CN Painters Melbourne, have been around since 1975 or nearly forty years ago. But of course, they’re not the only painting contractors around.
When it comes to hiring a paint contractor, you don’t just hire the first contractor you encounter online, rather, you should take a look at three companies and see what they have to offer.
When you contact a painting company, a paint evaluator will inspect the site before giving you a price quotation as well as make recommendations on the best product to use. You might also be provided with a list of equipment that may be required to complete the job.
While price can be a major factor in the decision-making process, there are more important things you need to consider, like workmanship, reputation, and customer service.
Large painting companies, which have been around for a long time, would have a reputation that precedes them.
However, if you prefer to work with smaller companies, you will need to do some due diligence. Check the company’s past projects and its reputation among builders, architects and designers. But this really shouldn’t be too hard considering that information is always available online.
Another factor that you need to consider when hiring is the Turn Around Time (TAT), or how long it would take for a company to finish the job. If you’re like everyone else, you will want to get the job done as soon as possible without sacrificing workmanship.
When you decide to hire a painting company, a team will be assigned to you. This team will consist of the following people: evaluators, colour designers, painting supervisors, and staff. Their knowledge and skills on the different surface types, and painting and colour placement ensures a perfect finish all the time. When it comes to choosing the actual colour, make sure to talk to the company’s in-house consultant for something to match the existing paintwork or provide you with a new colour scheme.
There are actually different types of paint jobs, including painting entire brand-new industrial and residential projects, renovation and restoration painting jobs, preservation of heritage homes, and weatherboard homes.
Other painting services include:
- Sealing and anti-slip solutions for pathways, driveways, etc.
- Textured finishes and applications for different surfaces
- Interior and exterior treatments like anti-rust coating
But this really doesn’t cover the entire breadth and width of jobs that painting contractors can do. A painting contractor could offer all of the services mentioned above or specialize in only a few jobs. Companies like Anchor Painting Company, for example, specialize mostly in commercial projects like Radisson Oceanfront Hotel and Kennedy Space Center, among others.
Can you ever go wrong in hiring a painting contractor? Only if you don’t hire a company that has the right expertise for your specific paint job.
Find a company that guarantees 100% customer satisfaction and guarantees a fair price to all its clients. Any price quotation you get should already include labour and materials.
