Our team at Professional Finishing understands that finding and securing services from a reputable metal finishing company isn’t always the easiest task. Read on to learn the three most important questions to ask when hiring a powder coating service to better understand your options.
May I See Your Samples?
The best way to gauge the abilities of a potential metal finishing company is to view their previous work. A reputable powder coating service will have plenty of samples of their various capabilities, either virtual or physical, that are always ready for viewing. Plus, most powder coating businesses feature their previous work on their websites for your convenience, potentially eliminating the need for this question. Feel free to ask for a sample anyway if you want to see more of a specific process or service. Additionally, steer clear of businesses that are hesitant to share their end products.
How Much Experience Do You Have?
When it comes to providing quality powder coating services, experience is king. That said, one of the first things to ask when seeking metal-finishing processes is how much experience the potential company has working with your specific products and preferences. It’s also important to make sure that the business in question has extensive experience in powder coating and not just general coating processes. To save you some time when considering our services at Professional Finishing, we have over 40 years of powder and liquid coating experience in a wide range of industries and applications.
Do You Have Any References?
If you’re not totally sold on a certain metal finishing business, it’s worth asking if they can provide any helpful references from prior clients. This offers you the opportunity to gain some valuable customer insight before investing in the services. A powder coating business that can provide many reputable references is most likely trustworthy and dependable. And again, you should avoid any companies that refuse to provide client references.
