Budgeting for Commercial Interior Painting

by | Jan 26, 2024 | Commercial Painting

Commercial interior painting involves more than just applying a new coat of paint; it’s a complex process influenced by factors such as business operations, deadlines, and special equipment needs. This article provides an insightful overview of these considerations, offering guidance on costs, budgeting, and selecting the right commercial painting services for your commercial project.

What Factors Affect the Cost of Commercial Interior Painting

The cost of commercial painting can vary depending on many different factors.  With residential painting, there are typically way fewer things to consider. With commercial painting, you are working around others who are trying to do a job in many cases.  You may need to paint after normal business hours which can add to the cost.  You may need to plan on having large equipment moved out of the way before painting.  You may have crazy deadlines to meet so the business is not shut down for too long.  

Commercial painting often requires special paints that may cost more but perform better in different environments.  In some cases, you may need to clean up all of the masking after each day is complete so you would need to mask off again each day which can cost time and money.  Working around special equipment can cause safety issues that take extra time.  Painting inside commercial buildings can also require scaffolding or lifts to help reach the difficult areas and that can add a lot to the cost.  Many things can affect the cost of a commercial painting project.    

How Much Does Commercial Interior Painting Cost? (On Average)

When bidding on a commercial project you really have so many things to think about.  If you are painting offices in a commercial building and they are not occupied it may be similar to painting someone’s bedroom as far as price goes.  If you are working in a busy space with lots of employees, the price can go up dramatically. It is very hard to give an average cost to paint the interior of a commercial building as it can vary so much.

Budgeting for an Interior Commerical Painting Project 

We always recommend talking to your painting contractor to help come up with a budget and get a timeframe that works for you.  You may be able to get a budget idea with a simple phone call or email on smaller projects.  Larger projects can take days or weeks to come up with a budget depending on how complicated the project will be. Make sure you do your homework before starting a large interior project.

Finding Quality Commercial Interior Painting Services 

Many painting companies offer both residential and commercial painting services but not all specialize in both.  Most painting contractors can do smaller commercial projects with no problem.  If you want to paint a huge commercial building you should hire a company that deals with larger projects regularly and make sure they have a team large enough to meet your deadline.  We always recommend looking at reviews and interviewing companies to make sure you are a good fit for each other.
