How to Find the Best Contractor for your House Painting Project

Posted on July 11, 2014

While it’s easy to find a painting contractor, not all of them will deliver a result that you will be satisfied with. Although it can seem difficult to separate the competition before actually seeing them in action, taking the right steps will help you identify a quality contractor from the beginning and ensure your peace of mind.

Experience is vital for a painter, as each and every job presents unique challenges that can only be overcome with the right expertise. Talking with the contractor in person can improve communication and give you a better idea of what they can provide, while a strong list of customer testimonials is a great indication of quality.

Take the time to research

Look at the contractor’s web site for ‘before and after’ photos of their work — while you are there, you should check for their insurance, qualifications and any other relevant documentation. If they provide you with a quote for your project, it’s a good idea to discuss it in detail before approval to make sure they have legitimate reasons for their price. Lastly, make sure the crew will provide a professional service and clean up the area upon completion, as it can take a long time to clean up after a lazy crew that leaves their mess behind.

Remember: rather than stressing out, don’t be afraid to make suggestions at any point in time. It’s better to discuss your ideas than be disappointed at the end of the day. A good painter will take the time to listen to your needs so that the finished product is perfect for you and your home.
