With pollution, volatile weather, and scorching heat, Florida buildings get a lot of wear and tear. As a commercial building owner in the Sunshine State, it’s necessary to include repaints in your maintenance budget.
At Sepi Painting, we have over 28 years of experience assisting commercial building owners with budgeting for their painting projects. To make sure that you receive a quality paint job, we take time to discuss your needs to create a plan that’s just right for you.
Before we begin preparing a budget for your Miami commercial painting project, keep these points in mind.
Tips To Prepare Your Commercial Painting Project Budget
Know what goes into an estimate
While every project is different, these are some of the factors that we take into consideration when estimating the cost of a commercial painting job:
- Repairs and any surface treatments or preparation
- Building design
- Project size and scope
- Required equipment and machinery
- Type of paint, paint quality, and number of coats needed
Work with a painting contractor from the start
While it might be tempting to take on a commercial painting project alone, a contractor can provide a better estimate of the costs involved. In the long run, you might end up spending more money and time than expected by attempting to do it yourself.
Ask for a timeline
Besides giving you an idea of how long a project will take, a timeline can help you to know when you can fit a painting project into your budget.
Paint your commercial building in stages
When painting a building, the best approach is to break up the project into phases. Doing so can help make it easier to manage costs and keep things under control.
Put aside extra funds
As with any major project, it’s inevitable that there will be unexpected expenses that increase the total cost. Be prepared by allocating some extra funds.
Having those extra funds can help you to keep your project on track if and when issues come up. We recommend keeping a contingency of 20% of the total project budget.
