Are You Asking Your Local Painter the Right Questions? Dig a Little Deeper!

How much?

It’s a fair question, but it shouldn’t be your only question.  Hiring a painting professional can be a daunting task. What if they don’t show up?  What if they do, and leave a horrible mess behind? How do I choose?

Gut feeling is a great start, but there are some concrete things you need to check before signing a contract.  

New in Town?

Experience counts.  Look for a professional that has experience doing what you need to have done.  A general contractor offering a host of diverse services may not have the experience or seasoning to be the best choice for your painting project.  How do you know? Ask to see their work. Ask for references, and then take the time to contact.  A little bit of legwork on your part can pay huge dividends in the finished product.

Are You Insured for That?

A professional contractor should not depend on your insurance. Period.  Any contractor you consider should be licensed and insured in your state, and be willing to show you proof.  

Don’t be afraid to ask.  

Professional painters want you to know that you’re in good hands, and they won’t hesitate to provide documentation.  It’s just good business.

Who Works for You?

Look for a painting professional with a dedicated in-house team, and check their website to see if they have invested craftspeople on their crew.  An in-house team represents a commitment to you, and to the employees.  That philosophy lets you know this company is in business for the long haul.

Are You a Local Painting Professional?

Supporting local business makes sense, and it’s a two-way street.  Look for a company that invests back in your community, not just through local taxes, but through time and accountability.  Good people supporting each other makes for a strong, connected community.  Choose to be part of that greater good.

Starting Something Wonderful

If you follow these guidelines, chances are your finished project will be exactly what you envisioned.  As a bonus, you’ll have started a new relationship that will make the next job that much easier to accomplish.  By working together. And isn’t that what makes a community wonderful?
