The earlier in the season you can tender and book your commercial or strata painting project the better. Painting companies start filling up their capacity as early as the year before the project starts but more typically right now (spring). There is no harm in booking your project early. In fact: You will likely get better pricing and get the best crews on your project. If you wait until the middle of the summer to get your painting quotes you will likely be struggling to get you project finished in the fall before the rains come in and risk having your project extend into the next summer season.
