“Out of sight, out of mind” is not advice that successful Northern Virginia businesses embrace. However, at All American Painting Plus, the Reston-based, award winning commercial painting professionals, our experience tells us that there is one area of a commercial property that is routinely ignored: stairwells.
Stairwells actually represent a very real slip and fall risk which can dramatically impact workmen’s compensation and liability claims. It is an area that needs to be well lit and well maintained. But because people, including management, will take an elevator before they troop up or down a staircase, dangerous conditions are infrequently reported.
If that situation sounds familiar, maybe today would be a good time to take a tour. Pay particular attention to the stairwells between the second and first floors as these will be the most heavily trafficked. Lighting is a key concern. If the stairwell seems a bit dingy or dark, then it’s time to brighten up the space with a fresh coat of paint on the walls, stairs, handrails, and spindles.
You’ll be amazed at how dramatic the look and feel of the staircase changes with a new paint job. Not only that, a fresh look sends a signal to employees, vendors, and visitors that management cares about their safety.
It’s time to call the painting business that so many Northern Virginia commercial property owners rely on for maintenance painting. It’s time to call All American Painting Plus.
The Professional Painting Process for Stairwells
Stairwells can involve a more detailed process than standard interior painting projects like offices or hallways. Stairwells involve different types of surfaces, meaning different preparation requirements as well as different types of paint. At All American Painting Plus, we take a systematic approach to these projects.
There is really no reason to let stairwells go neglected. They represent a potential liability and the “cure” is an affordable and fast solution. Find out just how fast and affordable it can be for your property by calling the professional painting contractors at All American Painting Plus today.
All American Painting Plus has been my “go to” company for over 10 years for home and office painting and I’ve been consistently satisfied with the finished product and their professionalism. I’ve found Brian McCracken’s staff to be exceptionally skilled craftsmen and can count on them to do the job well, including taking care to prepare walls and fix problem areas before they paint so that the finished product is polished. Please ask Brian for my contact information if you would like more specifics.
I want to thank you and your team for the work you did on my residence. The men showed up at the appointed time to replace and paint the fascia board. You recommended a change from wood to a more modern substance, which I accepted, at a negligible increase in the price for the job. Thank you for that. You should be extremely proud of the team that did the work. They worked quickly, safely, and without complaint from neighbors on either side of the townhouse. As you know, I have fastidious neighbors, that watched the work on that day, and they told me later, that your crew impressed them as well.
Brian McCracken was courteous, professional and a delight, amazing qualities in a worker you invite into your home. I found him painting a home in my neighborhood. The homeowner had checked him out on Angie’s List and ranted as to the professionalism of the workers. It was important to me that the company was local and not a big, franchised company. Brian’s estimate was spot on. When I added more to the job, Rene – the foreman – consulted with Brian to give me an estimate on the additional work. The painters arrived when they said they would, working efficiently and cleanly. At the end of each day, it looked like they were never here. All of their tools picked up. When they needed to leave the ladders they asked if it would be ok and where would be the best place to leave they were they would be out of our way. All American has come back 2 more times to tackle different jobs for us. I have recommended them to friends. And now recommend All American to you. You will not be disappoint
We couldn’t be more pleased with the work All American Painting did for our home. The team did a wonderful job from start to finish, from sending us an incredibly detailed estimate so there was no guess work, to keeping the work area tidy throughout the project. We certainly will use them again! Cheers!
