Need Your Offices Repainted?
The painting of offices can be a simple two to three hour task with minor interruption or it can be a large, logistical operation. Elite Trade Painting understands the needs of a working office environment and what it takes to get small and large offices painted with the minimum amount of disruption.
As part of every proposal for office environments, we will discuss timing and functionality of the office, details of the areas required, a general discussion on possible colour choices as well as staff sensitivities to cleaning products and paints. We will calculate the needs for project completion after the assessment for the job is completed.
Detailed Quotes for Your Office Painting
Once we have the project scoped, we will provide a detailed quote for areas and items to be painted that will each have a timeline as well as details on the paint products we will be using.
Paints of Choice for Office Painting
Our choice for office painting usually No-VOC products by Dulux (Lifemaster) or Sherwin Williams (ProMar 200).
- These products have zero harmful chemicals and even the most sensitive people, will have no issue with these products.
- These products are high-quality paints with great durability and withstand the rigours of daily office usage.
- They are washable and scrubbable and are available in a full range of colours.
Scheduling and Timing
Once the proposal is accepted, the next step is to set up the timing for the project. This entails setting a starting date and then creating a daily schedule where areas are scheduled for completion and then returned to service. Working with office staff and management to create the optimal timing to minimize any work disruption is key for a successful schedule.
It is more common for us to paint offices during business hours but in some cases, this may not be possible. In this case, we will create schedules that involve work to be done on evenings, weekends, and holidays.
How Long Does it Take to Paint an Office?
A single office for one painter with just walls is a two to three hour task, add one hour for a door frame and window. A team of two painters can paint six to seven offices in a day with only walls being completed, or four to five offices in a day with walls and trim being completed.
What Is Involved with Painting Your Office?
Most offices require walls, doors, windows and door frames to be painted while most ceilings tend to be T-bar tile and are generally not painted.
Drywall ceilings (when present) are more commonly painted but are often in excellent condition and do not require painting.
Two coats are usually applied for optimal coverage and durability but three to four coats may be required if using brighter and more vibrant colours.
What Preparation is Needed to Do to Get Ready for Painting Your Office?
Most offices require a minimum of preparation to take place prior to painting. Staff will need to remove small items and paperwork from their work areas, storing them in desks or cabinets.
Boxes and personal items must also be removed or stored. In general, we need a three-foot clearance around the perimeter of a room in order to accomplish the work required.
We move most furniture and file cabinets providing that they are not oversized or overweight. Modular furniture will need to be professionally moved or disassembled.
It is not uncommon for clients to have a few larger pieces of furniture around instead of enduring the hassle and cost of disassembly or professional movers being used.
The selection of colours is made easy with Elite Trade Painting. We provide colour charts and samples as well as guide you in the use of our suppliers’ online tools.
Our team of professionals will help you choose the best timing for your interior and exterior projects. Finding the right time to achieve the best results, meet your timelines, and minimise disruptions in day to day activities.
Painting any area before occupancy makes the job quicker and easier, which means cost savings for our clients. We paint many offices for our clients prior to their moving in and can provide quotes by using building plans, MLS information, client descriptions, and attending inspection dates.
There are minimal requirements for our clients to get an empty office space ready for painting. Occupied offices require a coordinated effort to have the offices ready for painting as work progresses. Our Elite staff will create a schedule with you to provide minimal interruption to office activities and maximize efficiency to get the job done on a timely basis.
When ceilings require repainting, a flat acrylic paint is the most common choice.
The majority of walls in offices use an acrylic eggshell paint which provides the durability and washability to resist everyday office wear and tear.
A good quality acrylic semi-gloss is the product of choice for doors, frames, and baseboards in offices.
