Commercial Painting


What does a commercial painter do?

A commercial painter’s main focus is on things like large buildings and office buildings. This painting is carried out with specialty brushes, sprayers, and rollers to create a smooth finish or texture for the interior and exterior of commercial spaces and buildings. Commercial painters are called in when the interior of the building needs repainting because they have more experience with complicated drywall textures and large-scale painting projects. Not just anyone can paint an entire office building or apartment complex – it takes some skill to know how best to apply the paint and clean the area to dispose of waste afterward. Our team of commercial painters does a variety of tasks that are necessary to bring our clients’ spaces up to professional standards. This includes painting, making repairs, replacing hardware like hinges and handles, changing light fixtures or switchplates, and taking down tiles or roofing textures. From government bids with schools to apartment complex makeovers, our team of experts at House Painters Denver has the experience and skillsets to tackle any commercial space!

What is considered commercial painting?

Commercial painting or specialized painting may refer to paintwork within commercial establishments, such as restaurants, schools, office buildings, or apartment complexes. Specific industries often have specific requirements for different types of painting. This is especially true in the food industry, where it can be very important to make sure that their walls are entirely washable and non-toxic. A commercial painter typically deals with multipurpose surfaces that see a large amount of foot traffic. Commercial painters must be up to code for lead-based paint and often apply an epoxy type sealant or primer that is important to keep the substrate protected. Photodegradation is a normal occurrence with exterior and interior paints, as the surfaces are exposed to oxidizing agents such as sunlight and air. It is important for commercial painters to understand this process and apply the correct paint and sealants to ensure consistency and lasting work.

Commercial Painting Contractors in Denver

The first thing that you need to look for is the experience and expertise of the painter. It’s rare, but there are always people who lack sufficient training or experience to be able to do a good job advertising for hire. Never hire someone unless they’re an independent contractor who specializes in commercial painting. At a minimum, look at their portfolio online and see how many different places they have painted before. A real pro will have just as much experience painting the exterior of commercial spaces as they do the interior. It’s important to have a real professional painter for your commercial painting needs. Unlike do-it-yourself or online ‘tutorial’ painters, our trained, detail-oriented and masterfully skilled commercial painters provide the best finish possible every time – even on tough jobs like porous wall finishes and difficult corners. It takes experience and know-how to work with unusual surfaces, such as wooden beams or crows nesting down low in an archway. Professional commercial painters are also important for achieving flawless results indoors like painted ceilings, glossed cabinetry, and high gloss trim boards.

How is commercial painting priced?

One of the biggest factors in the price of a commercial painting is time. The longer it takes to paint, the higher the price is going to be. On top of that, there are several different types of contracts for commercial painting such as doors/trim only, walls only, and walls & trims. A contractor will have different quotes for each since all take drastically different amounts of time and resources depending on where they need to go. Each company has its own pricing structures, but the average cost for a commercial painting job is around $2-$6 per square foot or $50 to $80 per hour. Commercial painting is typically priced by the square foot of coverage, so to give you an idea of how prices change according to wall size, here are some general guidelines. A normal 8′ x 10′ room would be approximately 800 square feet of coverage and usually cost around $150-$400. Larger rooms like 15′ x 15′ x 15′, that can reach 3,375 square feet of coverage would typically cost more than double that amount at about $1600-$3000 respectively. Pricing varies from contractor to contractor, so if you are looking for an accurate estimate with competitive pricing, contact our team of professional painting contractors at House Painters Denver. 

How long does it take to paint a commercial building?

The amount of lead time a commercial painting contractor requires to complete a project depends on the scope of the work. Our painting contractors will provide you with an approximate completion date based on your schedule and available resources, but it is important that you clarify as much as possible upfront. It is also necessary that you have a concrete idea of what exactly you want to be done to determine how long it will take to do the job right. If for example, someone wanted interior decoration along with painting, there would be significantly more detail involved and those details would need time for design work before implementation could even begin. It is important for our contractors to do a walk-through and inspect the property in order to have an accurate estimate and framework for a timeline to provide to a customer. We strive to ensure that the job is done efficiently and correctly the first time to avoid costly repairs and setbacks, guaranteed.
