Why Companies Choose Cochran & Mann as Their Commercial Painter

March 25, 2019

commercial-painting-companyWe’ve come a long way from two guys in a truck, but our down-to-earth accountability and old-school attention to detail has remained constant. That’s why we’re one of the premier commercial painting companies in the area.

Check out why you should consider us for your next commercial project:


Experience is a huge factor to consider when hiring a contractor. Since 1990, Cochran & Mann has been helping Washington, D.C. and the surrounding areas through strong craftsmanship and the reputation for always finishing what we start.

From our painting and wallcovering technicians to our leadership team, we’re committed to providing the best service for all who contact us.

Since our inception, Cochran & Mann has been known for producing value and quality with the utmost integrity — and we’ll remain just as reliable and honest in the future.

Integrity & Value

We believe you should always take pride in what you do, starting with the very first coat. We do what we say we’re going to do, and to the best of our ability.

Our reputation in Northern Virginia, Maryland, and Washington, D.C. is held to the highest standard. We consistently produce top-notch projects for well-respected industry leaders, and their appreciation is demonstrated through referrals to develop more strong relationships.

When it comes to value, we offer consistent delivery of high-quality work at a reasonable project cost. We limit surprises and change orders that come with a contractor stereotype and are tremendously responsive in order to bring your exact vision to life.

Knowledge & Skill

Many commercial building owners and property managers have a perception that painting is a simpler task compared to construction and other heavy-duty phases. However, you must grasp mathematics and engineering in square footage, multiple coats, primer, and the walls’ porosity. You have to prep for sharp lines, move furnishings, and patch existing imperfections.

With so much work, you’ll notice the immediate difference when choosing a painting company that has extensive industry knowledge and skill like Cochran & Mann.

We do standard finishes, but offer speciality services as well:

  • Coatings, including acid floor staining; intumescent fireproofing; water-repellant epoxy; elastomeric and acrylic waterproofing; metallics; and high-performance, corrosion-resistant coating

  • Light industrial work, including color coding and mechanical identification; drywall; rigging and scaffolding; and surface prep, such as power washing, sandblasting, and mechanical work

  • Renovation, including wallcovering demonstration, skim coating, drywall repairs, wood stain repairs and touch-up, custom color matching, and electrostatic spray paint finish

  • Special finishes, including zolatone, multispec, crafton, duroplex, scuffmaster, graphics and signage, and faux painting

  • Wallcovering, including walltalker and acoustic wall systems, textiles and fabrics, papers and vinyls, cock, acrovyn products, and murals and foils


Whether we’re tackling an athletic facility, warehouse, or hospital, every team member of Cochran & Mann takes responsibility for each phase of the project — even when we’re done. Our unrivaled blend of transparency and efficiency provides general contractors, property managers, and building owners the necessary peace of mind.

When choosing a commercial contractor, you need to find someone with exceptional qualities and a project portfolio to match. We check off all of the boxes, and our online gallery displays our quality work, including a J. Crew factory store and the Dulles International Airport Tower in Dulles, Virginia.

On social media, you can also check out our work at the Capital One office tower in Tysons Corner, Virginia; the University of Maryland Cole Field House in College Park, Maryland; and the Frederick Memorial Hospital Cancer Center in Frederick, Maryland.

In Washington, D.C., we’ve been a part of the National Building Museum, The Watergate Hotel, and the International Spy Museum.
