If you’re in the market for a new building painting project, it’s important to budget properly. Trying to save money by cutting corners can actually cost you more in the long run. In this blog post, we will discuss some keys to budgeting for your next building painting job.
By following these tips, you can ensure that your project is completed on time and on a budget!
Get Your Contractor Involved Early
Getting your contractor involved early is crucially important. A good commercial painting contractor will ask questions like how many coats of paint you want, what type of paint you want to use, and when you plan on starting the project. Other common questions include the building’s dimensions, the height of the ceilings, and any special instructions. By getting your contractor involved early on, you can avoid potential problems down the road.
Another key to getting your contractor involved early in your project is that they can help you to craft a realistic timeline. Trying to complete a project too quickly can often lead to shoddy workmanship and higher costs. By getting all of the details together early, you can avoid any surprises or last-minute changes that could increase the cost of your project.
Rising Building Paint Costs
Rising paint costs are another important factor to consider when budgeting for your next building painting job. Paint prices have been on the rise in recent years, and they are only expected to go up. By budgeting for increased paint costs, you can avoid any surprises down the road. Procrastinating will only end up costing you more in the long run. If you wait until the last minute to start your project, you may have to pay much more than you were expecting or have a risk of having supply scarcity.
Phasing Out Your Commercial Building Paint Project
Scheduling multiple phases for the project can make your project easier. Not trying to complete everything at once can also help to keep costs down. By breaking the project into smaller phases, you can avoid any potential issues that might arise from trying to do too much at once.
For example, if you’re painting a large commercial building, it might be better to paint one floor at a time rather than trying to do the whole building all at once. This will allow you to control costs better and avoid getting overwhelmed.
Getting All The Details Together
Getting all the project details together before you start can help to ensure that your project stays on budget. Whether it’s one coat vs. two coats, the type of paint you use, the timing of the project, or staffing, it’s important to have all of the information upfront. By getting everything in order before you start, you can avoid any potential problems that might arise during the project. Having a clear vision for your project will help your contractor provide you with an accurate estimate and ensure that the project stays on track.
