Cutting the Price and Quality

 Cutting the Price and Quality

This is just a friendly reminder to be extra careful in a slowing economy with all contractors, not just painters. The economy seems to be getting worse out there but it has not reached rock bottom. However, we have seen painting contractors begin to really cut their prices to the point that we think they have to cut back on quality too. San Diego is an expensive city to operate a professional business and still maintain quality services and products. So make sure when a contractor gives you a price that seems low, that you do your homework to make sure they do not cut quality.

You may ask yourself, "How will I know if a company will not do a good job?" The best way we believe you can know is to ask for references of past clients from 3-5 years back and to talk to a few other professional service companies about the company you are considering. If a company is professional and known for the highest standards of quality and service, you will hear nothing but good news from clients and other companies in town. By asking for older references, you will determine if the product on their home is holding up well. Sometimes you cannot tell if a contractor does a good job for up to 6 months after the job is complete. Why? Because any paint job will last three to six months! If they cut quality and their prices down, you will begin seeing a failure in your paint job typically within 6 months and be ready for a complete repaint in 2 years. Even the big paint companies are cutting back their prices right now to keep guys working and bidding projects with one coat when we believe most homes (exteriors mainly) need two coats.

If you want a second opinion, we'd be happy to look at your project and answer your questions and concerns. We will also give you a fair price to do a quality job on your home. Chism Brothers is committed to keeping customers for life, so we will not paint a home unless you want a very high quality paint job and a company to manage the project carefully.
