Whilst many people might think that both commercial and residential painters perform the same kinds of tasks, there is often a big difference between the two. Many residential painters, as the name suggest mainly provide personal tasks around the home with the odd small shop and business jobs here and there.
Commercial painters step in when the job is simply too big for one man and his van, so let us look at some of the big differences in these two painting fields that could make a difference when you make the call to renovate.
Choosing The Right Painter for A Large Task
Commercial painters are the go-to guys when it comes to large scale painting jobs. For painting large scale facilities, shops, public spaces and other big projects like airports and football stadiums, commercial painters can get the job done. Many commercial painting companies have large numbers of staff that can cater for urgent work, and by having the infrastructure and equipment in place to do the job, most tasks can be completed in record time.
Commercial painters are often required to work to tight schedules, so by having the right equipment such as industrial painting tools, cherry picker cranes for high up tasks and access to premium grade all-weather and commercial paint supplies, the commercial painter is the guy to call when the job is too big.
Residential painters on the other hand are much better suited to smaller tasks. These painters are often a one or two man team that can have your property professionally painted in no time at all. Just because they may be self-employed and are limited to smaller residential tasks, this doesn’t mean they aren’t every bit the professional when it comes to finishing the job, expert advice and good service
When to Choose A Skilled Residential Painter
It takes years of experience and many different qualifications to become a recognised painter, and it is often of great benefit to have a local painter in Sydney to come and talk to you face to face about a job, explain all of the equipment needed and to work out a price your budget can stretch to. A residential painter’s number is always good to have in your phone book, and finding recommendations for local contractors can be both easy to find and informative.
Commercial painters may be able to offer you a wider range of services than a residential painter due to their team of painters with varying experience in different fields. Likewise, a commercial painting company will be able to handle logistics on a larger scale and will be well schooled in working with other contractors on site to bring your project together and with minimal halts.
A residential painter may be your best bet when it comes to painting your house, but for larger projects, call the commercial painters to boost your efficiency on large projects.
