Painting your walls can be a hassle and time consuming. If you want the job done right, hire a professional contractor to do it for you. Whether you choose a full colour change or just touch up, here are some important questions to ask any potential painter so that your home looks its best.
How long have they been in business?
Paint is a big investment and when you choose to go with a painting company that has been around for more than a few years, you know they will do the job on time and on budget.
Does The Painting Company Use Subcontractors?
Subs are becoming more and more popular. If they hire a sub, ask the company whether their business insurance covers any potential damage to your home.
Is the company insured and will they provide a warranty?
If you hire a company that is insured and offers a warranty on the work they do, you know that they will look after any issues that may arise.
Will they provide references?
It’s always good to ask for references. When you have a chance, ask other homeowners about their experiences with the company and make sure to check their Google reviews!
Do they have a portfolio of previous projects?
Any reputable painting company in your area will offer you a portfolio of their work with pictures of past projects. Many also post their on their websites.
paint brands they use?
Professional painters who have a well-known name always use the best paint brands as they are serious about quality.
How much wall prep will the company include in their estimate?
Keep in mind that when a company does not take the time to properly prep your walls this can eventually lead to peeling and cracking and a rapid deterioration of the wall surface.
