Why Is It Important To Hire a Painter with an In-house Carpentry Team? !
You’ve heard us say it before, and we’ll say it again: surface preparation is everything in the world of commercial and residential painting. Having a solid, healthy substrate makes or breaks the rest of the process, and dictates the performance of your coating.
While sanding and cleaning are crucial, sometimes surfaces need more than that. Wood rot, for example, is a common issue, and requires skilled wood repair or replacement before painting.
This is where having an in-house carpentry team becomes invaluable.
Doesn’t Every Painter Have Carpentry Services?
A lot of painting companies offer carpentry, but that doesn’t mean that they actually do the work themselves. It means that they can subcontract the project to a carpenter in their network. This system can work just fine, but it does involve extra steps, time, and expense.
In-House Carpentry Services Keep Your Project On-Track
Finding a painting company with a carpentry division streamlines the whole process.
Your estimator can spot the problem areas during the initial consultation, making note of what will need a closer look and evaluation. We can then factor this right into your estimate, eliminating any surprises or wasted time.
Having carpenters on our team also means that the work can be finished to our standards by professionals who are invested, familiar with our services, and work side-by-side with our painters.
