How To Find The Best Contractor

Finding office painters in London is not difficult, but finding high-quality office painters in London can be. In a sea of commercial painting and decorating services, spotting a reliable service is a minefield. Luckily, we’ve put together a guide for identifying the best painting and decorating company for your needs.

Carry out some research

Find out who the local decorators in London are and get quotes from around three different companies. By inviting them to your office space and allowing them to conduct a full evaluation, you will not only be able to compare prices but also attention to detail. You can observe how efficient, polite and reliable they are from their inspection. It also gives you time to talk about quality and expectations in terms of time and availability.

Remember the best commercial decorators offer free quotes. Any painter and decorator charging for consultations are likely to be in it for the money. In addition to this, check out their working times. If you need a commercial space painted or redecorated in one of the busiest cities in the world, it might be worth organising the work to be done out of office hours – or even at night!

Remember, price isn’t everything, look for those offering a quality service and go for the company that you feel most comfortable with and that will work to suit your needs.

Find out what insurance they hold

Interior and exterior painting require manual labour that is inherently risky. Often there will be ladders and slippery surfaces during the work. It is advisable that you seek out commercial decorators and painters have both public and employee liability insurance.

This means that if there is an accident and someone is injured and needs medical attention, it covers your business from any legal cases that are held against you if you are in any way seen as negligible.

Nothing beats tried and tested

Customer satisfaction is a testament to a painting and decorators quality of service. In London, thousands of decorating projects are taking place and people willing to provide feedback on their experiences. You can ask the painter and decorator for references or perhaps a review site that they use. You can also visit a recent decorating project carried out by that company and see if the quality is still holding up. Nothing beats a review from a satisfied customer to give you peace of mind.

Get experienced painters and decorators

You shouldn’t be afraid to ask if the company has an in-house London team or subcontractors. In-house decorators have higher loyalty to the company as the money goes straight to them. Using subcontractors might make you question whether they have insurance for them too.

The advice that painters and decorators in London give indicate their experience. If they’re keen to talk through your requirements and make suggestions they’re more likely to be working with your rather than against. Two years of experience is good, but anything less may be questionable.

Costs and guarantees

Costs can be the deciding factor, but you should not compromise quality painting by choosing the cheapest option. It is worth asking about guarantees. Some contractors offer a two-year warranty and will actively return if the paint unexpectedly flakes, blisters or peels. Remember it is always best to get the deal written and signed, allowing you the best chance to hold them to their word.
