Frequently asked industrial painting questions answered

When you begin to consider redecorating your commercial workplace, it can feel like a minefield. Contradicting articles litter the internet, promoting products and services that are ill-defined and poorly explained. In this blog, we look at and answer the most common questions that come up within industrial and commercial decorating searches.

Does industrial paint contain lead?

The sale of lead paint was banned in 1992 in the UK. Specialist companies still use industrial lead paint for historic buildings, but for most contemporary settings, industrial paint will not contain lead.

Can you paint industrial floor tiles?

Yes! Industrial paints can be applied to floor tiles. If you work in an industrial setting, epoxy flooring would be more suitable for you. Before painting, it is recommended to remove the current paint on the tiles, this can be done through shot-blasting or other forms of cleaning.

What are the benefits of commercial / industrial painting?

The numerous benefits of commercial and industrial painting are too many to list in a blog like this, but some of the major benefits are:

  • A new company image can attract customers
  • Some colours can improve work efficiency and employee mood
  • Retain the value of your property
  • Extend the lifespan of your property
  • Keeping up with modern trends puts you ahead of competition


The benefits that industrial decorating can bring to your business can vary depending on how your company operates. 

Why are professional painters so expensive?

A hurdle that many business owners fall at when looking at redecorating their company is the notion of the high cost that comes with professional painters. Quality painting is not a cheap service. The labour involved in stripping the old paint, cleaning a surface, priming the surface ready for the new paint and finally the application of the paint takes time and requires a lot of training.

Here at Shirley Industrial Painters, we pride ourselves on our competitive rates that are more affordable than what you may think.
