Important Questions to ask painting contractors
1. Are you insured?
2. How long have you been in business?
3. What materials do you use? Do you follow manufacturer’s specifications?
4. Can you explain, step-by-step, how you will perform the work?
5. Do you provide detailed, written estimates?
6. Does your work come with a warranty?
6 Common Mistakes when Hiring A Painting Contractor
#1 Hiring on price alone.
Legitimate contractors have business costs that many contractors
do not regard as important— such as insurance,
training, membership in trade associations, and more.
#2 Paint is paint.
Today’s paints are complex chemical formulations. Recommending
the best product for your particular situation will
help provide a more durable job.
#3 Relying on painting experience alone.
More than 90% of the contractors in business today will go
out of business within 5 years. A contractor who is not in
business cannot service warranty issues.
#4 Not obtaining a written proposal.
A detailed, written proposal will help eliminate misunderstandings
and tell you exactly what is included. Know what
you are paying for.
#5 Not checking references.
A reputable contractor will be able to provide a long list of
past customers. Talk to the references and drive by a few
jobs to see what kind of work the contractor performs.
#6 Hiring uninsured contractors.
An uninsured contractor takes a tremendous risk. He is financially
and morally liable if he damages your property. If
he can’t pay for the damage, you will.
