When it’s time to paint your Arizona educational facility, you want a high-quality job at an affordable price. Whom you choose for the job can significantly affect the results. Whether you need simple touch-ups, major refurbishment, or new construction painting, there are a few things you should consider when looking for commercial painting services for your school.

Commercial Painting for Schools: Tips for Best Results

These tips can help you get the best results.

Choose the Right Materials

Educational facilities have some unique challenges. Schools are high-traffic areas. Finishes need to be highly durable and provide scuff resistance to handle wear and tear. Using the right materials may extend the paint job’s lifetime and contain school budgets.

Be wary of low bids. Some school commercial painting contractors use low-quality materials to keep the price down, but their paints and coatings may not hold up over time.

Ghaster Painting & Coatings uses top-quality materials to give schools the best possible protection and exceptional durability.

Schedule Early

One advantage schools have is that they know their schedule well in advance. This makes scheduling a paint job easier. With this knowledge, you can plan your school’s commercial painting services further in advance. Planning ahead lets you lock in your painting contractor and get the best pricing.

While most painting projects will take place during the summer or school breaks, it is possible to complete projects during the year while minimizing disruption. Ghaster Painting & Coatings will work with you to schedule your project and work efficiently to minimize disruption to school activities.

Define the Project Scope

It is essential to define the project’s scope, such as whether you plan to repaint your entire facility or just specific areas. When you are working with a commercial painting company, you should expect an on-site walkthrough to discuss your project in detail.

You should receive a quote that clearly defines the project and itemizes areas for work, including:

  • Exterior surfaces
  • Interior walls and ceilings
  • Bathrooms, kitchens, and lunchrooms
  • Hallways, classrooms, and labs
  • Cabinetry and equipment
  • Gymnasiums and playground equipment
  • Machinery and industrial equipment
  • Auditoriums and school theaters

Hire Experienced Commercial Painting Services

When vetting contractors, make sure you work with an experienced, professional painting company with expertise in painting educational facilities. They will know how to make your property look beautiful and inviting while providing a safe environment for students, faculty, and community members.

You will also want to check a company’s reputation. The best commercial painting services will have an A+ rating from the Better Business Bureau (BBB) and a perfect rating from the Arizona Registrar of Contractors.

Ghaster Painting & Coatings has a stellar reputation and offers commercial painting services for public institutions, with more than 45 years of experience, including some of Arizona’s most challenging school painting projects.

Ask about Painting Crews

Educational facilities are responsible for protecting students and providing a safe environment. You need to be aware of who will be working at your facility. You want to avoid companies that use day laborers or daily hires or companies that have not invested in thoroughly vetting and training their work crews.

Ghaster Painting & Coatings uses only company employees for schools. All crew members are background checked, screened on the AZ Public Safety Sex Offender website, e-verified, and have DPS Level 1 fingerprint cards.

Crews have completed OSHA 10 and OSHA 30 training and will attend mandatory daily safety meetings while working at your facilities. Crews wear uniforms and are equipped with the appropriate safety gear on job sites.
