Tips for Painting with Stronger Colors In Columbia City, IndianaJuly 12, 2019
When thinking of repainting rentals, business, office, or any other commercial property, the first question that comes to many people’s minds is, “Where do I find reliable commercial painters?” Well, if you’re looking for commercial painters in Warsaw, Syracuse, Lake Tippecanoe area, Winona Lake area, Columbia City, Indiana, and other surrounding cities, you will be happy to note that there are quite a number of them. But where do you find them?
In the good old days, not too long ago, people used to thumb through the Yellow Pages looking for names of painting companies and their contact information. Well, that has kind of become obsolete now, but thankfully, there is an online version of the yellow pages that you can simply type in the keywords, and you will be presented with a number of relevant search results.
Here is their website: yellowpages.com. You can simply type in “commercial painters” and specify “Warsaw, Indiana” or whichever local city you’re in, and you will be presented with a list of companies in that city with their contact info and website. You might not find as many painters on Yellow Pages, but it’s worth a shot. Another closely resembling platform is Yelp (Yelp.com). Give it a try as well; it works pretty much the same way.
Perhaps the most popular and preferred method of finding commercial painting contractors (or anything!) is by doing a Google search. Simply type in the keyword followed by your local city, and you will get the most relevant results from the top-down. For instance, if you’re looking for commercial painters in Warsaw, Indiana, simply key in “commercial painters in Warsaw, Indiana,” “commercial painters Warsaw, Indiana,” “commercial painters Warsaw,” and such other variants.
Filter through the results and see if you can locate 3-5 promising commercial painting companies from the first page of the Google results. In many cases, Google will also show results from the Google My Business (GMB) listings. These are businesses that have been verified, often shown in a map snippet, and typically have ratings from previous customers. GMB is probably one of the most reliable business listings out there with ‘genuine’ ratings.
Your Inner Circles
Another great way to get referrals is by asking your friends, family, neighbors, and colleagues. Chances are some of them know a painter or two that they really like and can recommend. The best part about this approach is you’re more likely to get local painters whose previous work can be easily accessed and assessed. But still, you need to make your own effort and find out if they can really meet your painting needs.
There’re plenty of ads around us every day –both online and offline. You will notice that if your search for a certain term severally in Google Search (e.g. ‘commercial painter Indiana’), they will start showing related ads every now and then as you go about your business on the internet. You may also be able to find billboards or even car, bus, or train signs with an advertisement for painters, usually together with their toll-free hotlines or their website in case you want to contact them.
Consider interviewing at least three commercial painters so that you can have a chance to compare their painting experience, reputation, services offered, timelines, and cost. Look out for any red flags such as numerous negative reviews online, change of business name multiple times in the last few years, lack of business liability and workers compensation cover, etc.
