3 Things to Look for When Hiring a Painting Contractor
Hiring someone to paint your home is an investment that involves a small amount of risk, but it is well worth the investment if you choose a well-respected company that puts quality first.Here are the most important things to consider when looking for a painting company.
- Look for Quality over Cost. It’s smart to get 3 estimates for your painting project. When deciding between companies, don’t let cost be the deciding factor. Ask each company about their painting process and what they put first. If a company prices their job lower, often it is because they cut a few corners – so find out what corners those are before hiring them. In painting, you always get what you pay for.
- Research Each Company & Ask Questions. How open are they on their website? Do they disclose information about their processes, past projects, employees, etc. What do their previous or existing customers say about their services? Ask for references. Is the company licensed and insured?
- Review the Contract Thoroughly. It often happens that a homeowner will breeze through a contract and not ask questions about the contract or or about what company has committed to do, then when the company executes what they have stated in the contract, it isn’t what the homeowner was expecting. Make sure the company has contracted to do a high-quality level of surface preparation since preparation is what makes a paint job last long-term.
Pay attention to all of these factors and in the end you should have a quality job that was worth the effort of finding a respectable painting contractor.
