Take A Few Minutes Learning How to Hire a
Professional Painting Contractor
Spend the Next 10 Years Wishing You Had
Most property owners and homeowners only paint every 7 to 10 years and many don’t know what questions to ask to evaluate a painting contractor.
Painting has changed dramatically in the last 10 years. There are many new products (especially green products) that require new knowledge to apply properly.
If You Only Ask “What Will It Cost”?
You are very likely to end up with a project that peels, cracks or blisters in the next year.
Require that every painting contractor visit your home and conduct a thorough review of your needs. It is impossible to provide an accurate estimate over the phone without visiting your property. Painting contractors that provide “ballpark” estimates should be avoided.
Estimates that are written on the back of a business card are worthless – because all you know is the price. It is far more important to know the specific steps that will be performed for the price quoted.
Along with the price, request a detailed step-by-step process to paint or apply a textured finish to your ceiling and walls. This will make it easy to make an apples-to-apples comparison of specifically what you are getting for the price quoted.
Painting contractors that are reluctant to put the details in writing or use sweeping generalizations like “we will apply 2 finish coats to entire exterior” or “the highest quality paint will be used” should be avoided. These are phrases that leave too much room for interpretation AND they allow the unscrupulous contractor to make more money at your expense.
Then you are likely to hear – “We’re sorry, that wasn’t included in the proposal – it will be $XX more.”
Unfortunately, when you hear that – it is too late and the unscrupulous contractor knows it will cost you more to fire them and hire someone else – you’re stuck.
We provide all of our customers a detailed step-by-step process for the project quoted and we back it up with a price guarantee for the work specified.
If you aren’t sure what you are getting – we will take the time to explain our steps so you can make the best decision possible.
We will be happy to provide you with a complete copy of our consumer guide and step-by-step painting process prior to our first meeting.
