Using a professional painting contractor takes the stress out of painting your home. But finding the right one is an important decision that requires careful consideration. Here are some tips to help you find the right contractor:
A good way to find a quality painting contractor is to get referrals from friends, neighbors, and acquaintances who have had good experiences with painting contractors in your area.
People who use Angie's List love it! Honest reviews from real people can help, especially if you don't have anyone in your life who can give you a referral.
When you receive contractor estimates, they should fall roughly within the same price range. Get estimates from 3 painters if you can.
Interview Each Candidate
Ask contractors the following questions:
- How long have you been in business?
- Do you have insurance and bonding? (This helps determine whether your contractor and any hired workers are insured for injury and liability.)
- Do you subcontract your work or perform it yourself?
- Can you provide references?
- Do you have any photos of your work?
- What products do you use?
Be Specific About the Project
It's a good idea to walk each potential contractor around the areas (indoor or outdoor) to be painted while discussing your needs, and particularly any aspects of the project that could affect the price. ***If a painter will give you a quote over the phone - move on. The best contractors give bids in person. Be specific about which surfaces you want to have painted (walls, trims, moldings, ceilings, etc.) and the paint colors you want.
