Multi-unit Residential and Commercial properties require routine maintenance of all painted surfaces. Generally this translates to requiring a substantial repaint every 4 to 7 years depending factors such as the type of surface, quality of paint used, weather, etc.
In some cases updating your paint may be done in separate phases for fencing, exterior walls, common areas vs. individual owner or tenant occupied buildings. Most projects will require approval of a board of directors or other governing body responsible to the property owners. The majority of jobs larger than simple touch up will be put to bid, with the intent of selecting the best combination of quality, price and experience for the job.
Most property managers are extremely busy with day-to-day operations making the process of putting painting projects to bid an inconvenience at best. There is nothing more frustrating that receiving proposals that fail to address your specific property needs. Which is of course why it is always best to develop a comprehensive “Request for Proposal” (ie; RFP) in advance of requesting project proposals.
Naturally the idea is simple in concept. Once you know what you need, it should be easy to develop an RFP, receive and select a contractor. But in real life, things tend to get more complicated than that. Just because you take the time to determine and spell out your project, does not mean that prospective bidders will truly understand what you want. This is where things can quickly go very wrong.
