Hiring a Painting Contractor


There are two types of painting jobs that require different specializations and two type of painting contractors that can do the job.

Lafayette Residential Painting contractors does painting jobs for homeowners and they can paint both the inside and the outside of a house.  A commercial painting contractor on the other hand, are also professionals who can paint big establishments like offices, schools, hospitals, shopping malls etc.  They too can paint the inside of those types of establishments, and have the needed tools and technology in order to paint the outdoor of the building.

When  speaking about the scope of coverage of their responsibilities, this is where the difference between a regular contractor and a general contractor lie.  For while the regular contractor is limited to the painting job and its varied responsibilities to make sure that all prescribed attention is taken care of to insure that the job is done properly and the fastest time possible, the general contractor carries a much more bigger range of duty than simply painting.  His responsibilities include building a new structure, renovating, remodeling, repairing, and other.

Sometimes it is better to hire Lafayette Commercial Painting contractor if you have a project which involves other tasks other than just painting.  When you  hire one contractor, you only have to deal with him to be responsible to keep the entire project moving and at the same time avoiding delays in the project.

But when your project is limited to painting only, there is no better direction than to delegate this to a regular contractor that is capable enough to carry a residential painting, commercial painting or an exterior painting.  They are able enough and big enough to perform painting jobs well.  They are even sometimes called a “general painting contractor.”


The good thing about a general painting contractors is that they can paint a property at a speedy manner, not only because they usually have an extensive assortments of professional sub-contractors who are ready to expedite a given engagement if in case the project would require them, they also have enough tools and equipment when the job dictates it.   A general contractor also have a steady supplier of painting materials and every time there is a need, they can easily made the painting supplies available at reduced costs.

Committing mistakes is minimized or eliminated if you choose to work with a general painting contractor for your residential or commercial painting project.
