Super-sized Painting Projects in San Francisco: Apartment Buildings & Condominiums
Summer projects are in full swing
Now that the warmer weather is here, many of us are planning summer projects involving improvements, renovations, additions, and painting. If you own an apartment or condominium complex, you know that the task of repainting multiple buildings can be quite daunting. If your property is located in San Francisco, weather can play a huge factor in contributing to exterior paint fading throughout the year. Whether the hot sun is beating down or heavy rainfalls are upon us, extreme heat or excessive water can turn a once pristine paint job into a washed-out look that’s not appealing to residents or prospective tenants. What’s the solution? Do you really want your maintenance staff to paint all of your rental buildings, or worse yet, try to tackle the job yourself? If you do, it will surely involve a lot of time, money, and most likely, headaches.
Consider the pros and cons of a Do-it-Yourself (DIY) painting project
Before you make a final decision on how to handle such a large endeavor, sit down with a pen and paper and write down the “pros and cons.” Ask yourself these questions:
1) How many rooms or buildings need to be painted?
2) Do you have all of the proper equipment needed, such as professional paint rollers, brushes, ladders, tarps, painter’s tape, and the like?
3) Can you afford to have your maintenance crew take a break from their regular duties such as making repairs, lawn service, etc. while they take days, or possibly weeks to paint exterior and/or interior surfaces?
4) Are your employees licensed, bonded, and insured in case of an accident, such as falling off of a ladder while painting?
5) Are you or your staff experienced enough in painting to produce a highly professional, flawless painting result?
6) Do you have a professional contractor’s license that would allow you to buy top-quality paint and supplies at a discounted rate?
7) How much will such a project cost, including labor and materials? A project like this may require paying your staff overtime. Do you have enough in your budget to allow for such increases?
Once you contemplated all of these factors, you are likely to lean toward hiring a professional painting company such as SF Painters. Every painting expert at our company is licensed, bonded, and insured to perform large-scale jobs such as apartments paintings and condos painting. We are highly skilled at painting both exterior and interior surfaces. We are a family-owned business with more than 30 years of experience painting commercial buildings in San Francisco.
Accidents can happen
According to the State of California’s Department of Industrial Relations, “accidents from portable ladders are very common. Falls are the most common cause of worker injury associated with ladder use.” http://www.dir.ca.gov/dosh/etools/08-001/
If you or your employees are not properly trained on what type of ladder to buy or how to use it, is it really worth taking a chance on risking a possible fall? If you hire our painting specialists, you will have nothing to worry about. Every employee at SF Painters has received years of professional training and is insured, leaving zero risk to you as an apartment or condo owner. You don’t need to worry about being sued by a worker that fell off a ladder while painting your San Francisco condo or apartment. If a workers compensation lawsuit is filed, your reputation as a business owner could be tarnished, and you could potentially lose hundreds of thousands of dollars. If you can avoid these types of significant losses by hiring a licensed contractor that protects you from them, it is only logical to do so.
Protect your property by investing in painting professionals
Your business is your livelihood, so you need to take good care to keep it looking as attractive as can be. A freshly painted building will be the first thing people see when they are driving by, if they are considering a new place to live. If your apartment or condo has peeling paint or is drab looking, no one will think twice about stopping by. Prospective tenants will continue driving on to the next place for rent, one that looks contemporary, updated, and eye-catching. In other words, you will lose business. One of the best ways to ensure you will keep your occupants happy, as well as attract new renters, is to continually maintain your property. By periodically refreshing both the exterior and interior paint, you are showing you care about your investment.
