You have a lot of choices when you are looking to hire a painting contractor. You want to ensure you’re getting the best available, but how do you judge that? What questions should you ask and what criteria should you use to ensure you get the best painting company around? Here are a few key questions that can help you separate the top-notch companies from the fly-by-night deals.
How Long Have They Been In Business?
You want a company with years of experience producing high-quality work. You want a good, solid track record of success, rather than a brand new company with an unproven reputation. If possible, it’s also preferable to find a company who specializes in painting, rather than a jack-of-all-trades company. Premier Painters has been an industry leader for 20 years, so you know that we’re reliable and experienced.
Do They Sub-Contract?
Sometimes, the contractor you hire to paint your home won’t ever actually step into your home. You may think you’re making a deal with one company, but it turns out they’ll subcontract the work out to another company you’ve never heard of. A good, reputable painting will handle all aspects of the project themselves; that’s the only way they can keep true ownership over the quality of their work and maintain a high standard of service.
Are They Insured? Is there a Warranty?
You never hope something goes wrong, but a warranty and liability insurance are vital to care for the worst-case scenarios. Sometimes, jobs don’t go as expected, even for the most reputable companies. Accidents happen. Paint failure can occur. When a company’s work comes with a thorough warranty, you know that you won’t be on the hook if something goes wrong.
Do They Have References? Awards?
When you’re dealing with any contracting company, you should ask to see some sort of example of their past work so you know what you’re getting into. For a painting company – especially if you’re looking for an interior painter – this can be achieved with a picture portfolio, online review sites and rating sites and any awards or accommodations they’ve received.
