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?
#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.
