Merry Interior Painting Season!

It’s that time of year again! People are huddling in doors around Christmas trees and near fires.  Lots of yummy treats are to be had and if you’re lucky (at least in Vancouver) you might even get some snow!

Of course that means it is a bit hard to get any painting done outside at this time of year; so as painters we shift our focus to interiors.  This has an effect on all painters but on commercial painters the most.  This automatically cuts out a large part of the market you have to work in and restricts jobs to high rises and low rises (which do not need a full re-painted that often) and to business (who have their busy time of year right now and do not need to close or be inconvenienced for painting).

All painters feel the pressure at this time of year to land those rare interior painting opportunities. This can be especially hard on commercial painters in areas with a high number of townhouses (like Langley and Surrey).  Unless you are willing to commit to residential painting during the winter, work can be sparse.

Such is the nature of a seasonal business!

Ultimately though we have all bee through this before, and year after year we make it through to the spring to start those exterior projects up again.

What we, as commercial painters, have to do now is hunker down, enjoy the holiday season with our families, and cross our fingers for a sunny spring!

Merry Christmas, Happy Holidays, and a Happy New Year everyone!
