How to Hire the Right Painting Contractor

If only hiring a painting contractor was as easy as picking out the right paint colour. Actually, come to think of it, selecting your paint colours isn't a simple task either.

However, if you partner with the best local painting contractor, you can get professional advice about those wall colours, as well as plenty of other tips. You don't want to stress too much, but also don't want to end up settling for an inferior contractor.

Whether you're looking for a painter to take care of interior or exterior painting, you need to hire an industry specialist and not just a painter. Follow these guidelines to secure the right fit for your job.

Top Tips to Make Your House Painting a Success

No matter how high-quality your paint is, the final painting work will only be as good as the painter who does the job. With so many to choose from, how do you know if you're picking the right one?

  • License and Insured

Don't take any excuses from a painter who lacks the necessary industry requirements for working on homes or commercial property. No discounted price is worth the risk of shoddy work or financial liability for personal injuries or property damages.

  • Ask Those You Know

Who better to trust for referrals than people you know and trust - those with no ulterior motive. Friends, family members, neighbors, and coworkers are perfect examples of people you can ask for referrals.

  • Interview Three or More Candidates

Sometimes, weeding out the contractors you don't want is as important as picking out the one that you do. However, no matter how well they charm you with what they promise - get it all in writing.

  • Seek Out Value Not Cheap Rates

As cliché as it sounds, you get what you pay for. Cheap work is not the way you want to go for painting your home or business. You'll be disappointed with the results and end up paying more for repair or a re-do.

  • Established and Local is the Way to Go!

Look for a painting company that's already been around for a while and built a strong reputation. You also want local experts because out-of-towners tend to vanish when you discover how shoddy the work quality is.
