Whatever the scope of the project, hiring a professional contractor will save a lot of time and effort in the long run. One of the easiest ways to hire a painter is to get recommendations from neighbors, coworkers or friends. You may also want to check with your local builders’ association, or home designers who they would use for similar projects.
Most professionals will want to meet with you so that they can evaluate the project in its entirety and provide you with an accurate estimate. When they meet with you, you’ll want to pay attention to their professionalism, business expertise and promptness for appointments. A contractor who is very busy but also promptly returns phone calls and answers emails is someone who knows the value of their business and wants to keep their customers happy.
Before you choose a contractor who meets your needs, consider the following:
- Experience: How long has the contractor been in business? This trade can have high turnover rate, so be sure to hire someone who has been operating for two years or longer. You want to hire an established company whose record and reputation is top notch.
- Qualifications: Ensure that the painting contractor you hire has a state-issued license, general liability insurance and workers’ compensation insurance. It is absolutely critical that your contractor has all necessary insurances and licenses because it protects them and any workers they may have on site, as well as you and your home.
- Formal Estimate: Make sure estimates for your project are completed at your home in order to receive an accurate estimate. A professional painting contractor will provide you with a written contract with specifications.
