Hire an Experienced Commercial Painting Company

Commercial painting contracts represent a responsibility to the contractor or hiring company to abide by city, county and state regulations. These rules and regulations are in place to protect all parties concerned. A busy commercial property means an increase in risk and therefore should only allow properly licensed and experienced contractors to get the work done safely and according to commercial standards.

What is the difference between “just a painter” and a professional commercial painter? The answer is equipment experience, safety training, licensing and insurance and so much more.

License & Insurance

The state of Florida does not offer a license specially for Painting Contracting, however you will find that most reputable commercial painting companies will have a licensee who is state certified as a General Contractor, as an extra measure of commitment to excellence. Even with a state CGC license, most often individual cities or counties will require an extra license to be filed if work is to be performed within its boundaries. All necessary licensing should be provided prior to job commencement.

Risk mitigation begins with the obtaining the proper insurance. Both worker’s compensation and general liability are mandatory in the state of Florida for any type of contracting work. Individual commercial projects may also require specific limits or to be listed as additionally insured depending on that particular project requirements.

Equipment & Safety

A commercial painting contractor must be prepared to make a large investment in machinery & equipment when taking on a larger commercial project. Along with this investment in capital comes an investment in training in all aspects of equipment operation to ensure personal & job safety. Safety is paramount on larger commercial projects, which means all equipment needs to be operated within OSHA safety Requirements.

The types of equipment you might see on a commercial painting project include but are not limited to:

  • Gas powered airless sprayers capable of producing and applying paint at 2 gallons per minute (GPM). Gas powered machines are more suitable as power may not be readily available.
  • Large spray tips and extension wands are a valuable part of the equipment inventory.
  • Commercial painters also require cleaning equipment like large gas powered pressure cleaners an ideal machine will produce up to 4000psi and 4 GPM of water and chemicals to properly prepare the surfaces for the paint application.
  • Lift equipment including scissor lifts and boom lifts as a majority of the work is to be completed at high elevations.

6 Stars

The entire process from start to finish was professional. They did a great job and left everything clean. Ryan wouldn’t leave until everything was perfect. The entire team was so responsive. I would recommend FCI to anyone. I would give them 6 stars if I could.

Reasonably Priced & Very Detailed

We have a three unit, two story condo building that needed an exterior painting job we awarded to FCI Painting. Their proposal was reasonably priced and very detailed. Richard Foden’s came to estimate the job and took the time to explain the process, answer questions and provide recommendations (that help us in our process). We received four proposals and FCI’s stood out making our decision straight forward. FCI crew was professional and the foreman ‘Eduardo’ exceptional. On a daily basis’s he communicated what to expect, what they would be achieving and the crews next steps. Crew was courteous and cleaned up the grounds every evening. We highly recommend FCI Painting company. Thanks

Incredible Service

I honestly cannot recommend this company enough. I was attempting to find painters in Naples while I was still in Canada. Richard and his team were so helpful in the process, going above and beyond what I could have ever imagined. They were thorough, professional, and one of the best prices I found in the area. Incredible service.

Can’t Recommend FCI Painting enough

I can’t recommend FCI Painting enough! Owner Richard Foden runs one of the finest painting companies I’ve ever had the pleasure to work with. When my business moved into our new office, we started researching painters in Naples, FL and FCI came highly recommended. The commercial painters that Richard works with are prompt, thorough and professional. After working with them in a business setting, I’ll be certain to give Richard a call next time I’m in need of house painters as well.

Had my condo painted by FCI Painting and they did an outstanding job! They were professional and friendly.

Competitive & Fair

FCI Painting did an outstanding job for us and we are more than pleased with the results. We found the pricing to be competitive and fair. Our painter, Chris, was an expert craftsman, patched several areas of drywall that needed attention and helped us work through a problem we had with one of the colors we chose. We would definitely recommend FCI painting for anyone looking for a quality job at a fair price.
