However, if you would rather perform the commercial painting project on your own, you need to know how to set up the project, how to prepare for it and what you need to do in order to complete the project and have it look just as professional.

Plan Your Commercial Painting Project

First, you need to know what the square footage is of the painting area. This helps you know how much paint to purchase and how much the project might end up costing you. After all, you should not pay just per room, but instead per square foot, as this is going to give you a much more accurate assessment.

Choosing the Paint

Now, there are different kinds of paint available, so it is necessary to know what sort of paint is going to work best for the particular room. If you are planning on painting the exterior of the building, you need to select a paint based on the kind of material you are painting over, such as brick, vinyl, stucco or stone. For interior based paint jobs, you need to consider both the wall surface and what the room is used for. Beyond this, each kind of paint has a safety level that is important to look into, especially if you are painting a medical facility or even a laboratory.


When painting, it is important for everyone to wear all of the necessary protective gear, which includes goggles and gloves. This is especially important if using paints with harsh chemicals found in the paint. You do not want yourself or your crew to breathe in these harmful vapors. You also want to prep the painting area by moving the necessary furniture and other items out of the way, not to mention you want to cover shrubs, bushes and other items you are not able to move with plastic sheets. This way, you do not need to worry about spilling paint around the facility or anywhere else. All of this is going to help ensure you complete your commercial painting project.
