If your office, school, retail shop, or warehouse has seen better days, these dull walls with peeling paint might turn off your customers and guests. It would be beneficial to paint your commercial building with help from commercial painters in Dublin or other cities in the Bay Area.
If the surfaces scream for a new coat of paint, contract the work to a professional painting company, such as Custom Painting, Inc. We use our years of experience and the best tools to give surfaces a beautiful and long-lasting finish, making your commercial property look refreshed, updated, and modern.
Determining how long a commercial paint project could take
As you are planning for your next painting project, prepare a timeline and figure out how long it takes for a paint crew to finish a commercial paint job. Some factors to consider that can affect the timeline of your project:
- What is the size of the commercial building in question?
- Is the surface smooth and flat or textured?
- Do you want the interior or exterior surfaces to be painted or both?
- Do you know the qualifications of the painting contractor you want to hire for the project?
- What brand of paint do you want to use?
- The number of coats required.
- The number of workers for your project – the more workers, the quicker the job will be.
- You can also consider the skill level of the workers.
- Check the weather forecast in your area. Remember that exterior paint projects can sometimes get delayed due to long periods of heavy rain.
- When do you want the project to be completed? The time or season also plays a significant part in the start and completion of the project.
Planning for your commercial painting project can help you determine how long it will take to complete.
Budgeting your project
How much paint you expect to use for your project depends on the size of your commercial property and the number of surfaces about to be painted.
First, determine the total square footage of the interior and exterior areas needing paint.
Following that, bear in mind that a gallon of paint usually covers 300 square feet of flat, smooth surface. Expect to shell out between $50 to $75 per gallon for premium paint quality. For instance, 4,800 square feet of space comprising all flat and smooth surfaces could cost about $1,200 for paints.
The more surfaces you need to be painted, or if the surfaces are textured, you will need more paint.

How does Custom Painting, Inc. paint a commercial building?
Custom Painting, Inc. applies the basics to residential and commercial painting like many other painting service companies. Both residential and commercial painting involves surface cleaning, repairs, and other prep work, as well as painting and clean-up. Those are the basics.
But since commercial buildings are businesses, there’s the additional element of professional expectations from the owners, customers, guests, and employees. After all, the interior and exterior appearance of a commercial building is a reflection of their business.
Custom Painting, Inc. usually follows a method in their trade that guarantees the completion of the project on time and within budget. At the same time, we keep the disruption to normal business operations to a minimum to yield quality results.
Custom Painting, Inc. ensures that your paint job will last for many years
Industry standards recommend repainting commercial buildings and facilities every three to five years to maintain and enhance their appearance.
However, it also depends on how well the last paint job holds up against the weather elements and customer traffic. Some factors could shorten a paint job’s lifespan. For example, buildings directly exposed to sunlight will likely fade more quickly than buildings protected by shade. Buildings painted in vivid colors also fade faster than buildings painted in neutrals.
Custom Painting, Inc. always does the correct prep work. It uses quality paints, tools, and equipment to ensure a solid, beautiful, and long-lasting finish that can hold up well against weather elements, pollution, and customer traffic.
Custom Painting, Inc. uses quality paints.
As certified professional painters, we at Custom Painting, Inc. are totally committed to quality service. The important thing is to use high-quality paints in all of our projects.
Many people have asked which paint brand is better – Sherwin-Williams or Kelly-Moore?
While many commercial painting contractors stick to one brand in almost all of their projects, we will use both Sherwin-Williams and Kelly-Moore because they offer a superior quality finish that lasts long.
But more often than not, a contractor chooses one brand over the other because they can take advantage of sales and then pass the savings on to the customer. Another reason is that they prefer one brand when a customer’s color choice is better matched with one brand than the other.
