Condominium & Apartment Painting
What is the main difference between painting apartments and painting homes? For us when it comes to painting indoors there is really no difference. If we are dealing with drywall we are going to deal with drywall the same way that we always do. The same thing goes for stucco or other types of walls. The main differences are when we are painting exteriors and we are going to have to be using equipment to make sure that our guys are safe at high altitudes. Average homes are not taller than 3 stories so that varies a little bit. Also, there are times where the whole building is not owned by the same person so the boundaries are going to be very important.
Respecting The Boundaries
This is the last concept that we brushed upon and we did not want people to think that we paint only half the building or things like that. A lot of times boundary issues also occur on interiors. We need to know what our limitations are so that we don’t step over the line and cause a problem. If we are being hired by building management to do a job we also want to know what we can or cannot do!
One of the biggest issues that we face when working in apartment buildings is finding a schedule that works for everyone. Usually, when we are working with single homeowners we are going to be able to set up working hours that work for both sides. A lot of times with apartments that have people living in them this is going to be more difficult and this is a topic that we would like resolved before we get to work. As we would not want to have our guys dealing with tenants who are making it hard on us to do our job.
What Floor Are We Working On?
It is pretty common for painting companies that just don’t have the experience to have to turn down apartment painting jobs when they would have to deal with an excessively tall building. That is just not something that we are going to have a problem with. We are going to be able to paint in pretty much any type of circumstance that you put us in. That is actually one of the main reasons why we have been in business this long and we have been able to expand our services.
Do You Have A Project In Mind?
A lot of times apartment buildings are great canvases to be able to apply a combination of different colors and textures. It would be a shame if you would not be able to obtain that type of look because you hired a company that is very limited in the type of work that they can do. Just a thought, you could totally avoid this problem by hiring real pros that are going to be able to mix and match colors in any way that you want!
