Interior renovations and painting services for common areas

Common areas carry a lot of weight, particularly for condominiums where prospective buyers can be highly influenced by the appearance of these spaces. The same can be said of hotels where the lobbies are often the first thing a guest will see, and that can set the tone for the remainder of their stay. In a workplace, the areas where employees congregate must also be renovated and painted on a regular basis to keep worker morale high.

At Painters Inc., we know how important it is to give common areas a facelift from time to time, whether it’s applying new paint, replacing floor or ceiling tiles or fixing baseboards. We get the job done during hours that make the most sense to you.

At Painters Inc., we offer the following services and more:

If it’s been a while since your last interior renovation, there’s a good chance wear and tear is bringing down the aesthetic appeal of your common areas. Let Painters Inc. come in and assess the situation and get your interiors back on track.

Complete overhaul of the common area

Whether it's a lobby, hallway, or community room, our team of skilled painters is dedicated to delivering high-quality results that exceed expectations.

Improve your common areas

Every common area will have its own set of unique complexities. Bringing in the right crew to tackle these spaces means no stone will be left unturned and every minute aspect of the job will be attended to. The following are some of the most requested jobs we get at Painters Inc.:

  • Lobbies

    First impressions mean everything, and a lobby is often the first thing a person sees when they enter your facility. Let our crew revitalize your lobby and bring it back to its full glory.
  • Hallway/corridors

    From painted-over wainscotting to dated wallpaper, Painters Inc. will transform an antiquated hallway/corridor and bring it into the 21st century.
  • Elevator lobbies

    Elevator lobbies can be tight and plain to large and ornate. Your best approach is to bring in a contractor that has wide-rangning experience, so regardless of what type of elevator lobby you have, the job will be completed correctly.
  • Meeting rooms

    Whether the meeting room decked out with high-tech audio-visual equipment that needs to be carefully worked around or if it’s just a plain room with four walls, the experts at Painters Inc. know what to do as they renovate these rooms.
  • Stairways

    Stairways are another area that can differ greatly from one building to another. Painters Inc. has tackled large stairwell jobs on multi-story buildings and smaller, old-style wooden staircases that require a fair share of repair and repainting.
  • Balconies

    If you’re looking for a contractor with extensive experience in repairing and painting balconies and decks, that’s what you’ll find at Painters Inc. Indoor or outdoor, our crew safely works to renew all types of these common areas.
  • Parking lots and underground garages

    It takes specialized tools and very specific types of paint to tackle parking lot and underground garage painting jobs. Painters Inc. has worked with clients with a wide variety of needs that we’ve delivered every time we’re called.

These are just examples of common areas that we work on, so if you don’t see yours listed, rest assured that Painters Inc. will know how to handle your situation.

"Painters Inc is one of our main Subcontractors. We have use them on more than 30 Home Depot renovations, over 300 balconies, and various other projects. We have never had to place their name on a punch list or had a complaint from any of our clients as to their work. I highly recommend them as long as you don't try to steal them from us."

Ceiling repainting

Ceiling repainting and tiles replacement

Being a “go-to” painting contractor means the workers have to know about more than just painting. For new paint to really pop and make a ceiling look great requires a knowledge of other aspects, such as tile replacement.

When the paint on a ceiling begins to crack and peel, and as tiles warp, become water damaged or completely fall off, it’s time to call in Painters Inc. to expertly repair and paint your ceilings so your common areas will shine as they were intended to.

Painting walls

Painting walls

The vast majority of our common area painting jobs includes walls, which can range in materials, from drywall, which is the most common, to metal (such as the walls in multi-story stairways). We assist our clients in choosing paint colors for their walls, especially if they’re going for a specific aesthetic, but we’re also experts in choosing paint from the right manufacturers.

Painting walls might seem like an easy job, but novices will often leave behind streaks and other inconsistencies that you’ll never find with a professional group of painters like we’ve amassed at Painters Inc.

Wallpaper removal

Wallpaper removal

Styles and trends change regularly, so the wallpaper you installed has probably gone from “refreshing and new” to “outdated and lame.” Removing wallpaper requires a specific skill set, as some DIY methods damage the underlying wall. Painters Inc. has removed ream after ream of wallpaper, so we know how to do it fast, yet efficiently.

After years of removing wallpaper, we know which tools to use, the techniques to remove it safely while leaving a clean surface where paint can be applied, or a newer, trendier wallpaper can be hung.

Drywall repair

Drywall repair

Drywall isn’t exactly a forgiving material when it comes to collisions, but it’s the most widely used of all materials. Over time, a few dents here, a few holes there and nicks/scratches everywhere will leave your common areas looking haggard.

At Painters Inc., we do more than just paint. Given that a majority of the surfaces we paint are drywall, we have become adept at completely repairing all signs of damage to drywall before we apply a new coat of paint. It’s just another skill we bring with us to every painting job.

floor painting

Floor repainting and concrete floor painting

Repainting a floor is not something most DIYers will want to tackle on their own. It’s one thing to look for recommendations on which paints to use on floors, but it’s another to know which ones actually work. At Painters Inc., we have experience with many types of primers and epoxy paints that will last on floors that experience the most unforgiving amount of traffic.

We begin all of our floor painting projects with a thorough cleaning, using the right equipment and cleaning detergents to lift all contaminants so the primer and paint will adhere correctly. Next, we use special rollers and brushes to apply the paint evenly so it lasts for a long, long time.

Baseboard replacement

Baseboard replacement

While Painters Inc. crew members don’t call themselves carpenters, we are experts at replacing baseboards. Baseboards come in many sizes, shapes and styles, each complimenting the facilities in which they are installed. Given our experience replacing baseboards, we can help you choose the style that will best fit your facility and expertly install them.

If you’re going with a natural wood look, we’ll apply a coating of protectant to make sure your baseboards will look great and hold up for years to come. We also efficiently paint baseboards that we install in a color that makes the most sense for your building’s overall appearance.

Renovating common areas in condo & HOA apartment buildings

To stay competitive in the market and to please current residents of HOA apartment buildings and condominiums, undertaking a renovation in common areas is necessary. Not only are you keeping everyone who lives there happy, you’re increasing the curb appeal and value of the property. Given the amount of use these common areas see, renovations need to be considered more frequently than you might imagine.
