The difference between residential and commercial painting services

If you’re doing research about hiring a painting company, then it’s worth your while to research the difference between residential and commercial painting. While the average man on the street might not think there’s a big difference, there are actually a few key differences that can make or break the success of your paint job. Some of these differences include:

  • Commercial painters can handle larger paint jobs: Commercial painters are used to taking orders for larger paint jobs, such as office parks, industrial buildings or retail outlets. They will typically have access to special wholesale paint prices, more staff to help with the paint job and are able to complete the job within a shorter amount of time. Commercial painters will also be able to schedule the paint job after office or trade hours in order to ensure their presence doesn’t disturb your staff or clients.
  • Residential painters might be more inclined to do unique paint finishes, murals, etc.: Homeowners have a unique set of needs when it comes to painting their homes. They might want an antique effect in their living room and a mural in the kids’ play room. Not all commercial painters will be interested in these often time-consuming jobs, which is why you should rather hire a residential painter.
